Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).
Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.
Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.
This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.
When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.
*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***
on the back of the genesis there is a place where you would hook up rf adaptor and then the other end would plug up to the coxial connection on the back of the tv or the a/v cables would plug into the video and audio jacks on your tv. Depends on what came with your system.
There are a fews ways of accomplishing this.
It sounds like you may reversed your cable connections. Lets try these steps.
On the back of your cable box and your Go video VCR/DVD there are two coxial connections an (OUT) and an (IN):
Step 1. Connect the coxial cable from Comcast to the (IN) connection on the back of the cable box.
Step 2. Connect one end of a spare coxial cable to the (OUT) connection on the back of the cable box.
Step 3. Connect the other end to the (IN) connection on the back of your GO Video box..
Step 4. Connect one end of another spare coxial cable to the (OUT) connection on the back of your Go Video Box.
Step 5. Connect the other end of the Coxial cable to the back of your TV.
On the back of your converter box and TV/VCR there are two coxial connections an (OUT) and an (IN): Step 1. Connect the coxial cable from the antenna to the (IN) connection on the back of the converter box. Step 2. Connect one end of a spare coxial cable to the (OUT) connection on the back of the convert box. Step 3. Connect the other end of the Coxial cable to the back of your TV. I hope that you find this solution helpful. Please take a moment to rate tis solution.
Purchased a newer HDMI DVD player,(Sony)as well as found that I do need the video cables.Also found that I need to change the input to component on the DVD player by using a regular coxial to at least get a display from the DVD player had I kept the older one.
Without the manual !! 1)VCR INPUT:: [Cable_antenna In] the coxial screws on from "output" of cable box or ( airwave )antenna. 2) VCR output:: connect another coxial into input of TV. You should be able to keep all the other wires connected from SONY theater system. note:: your VCR has a switch for VCR\TV. When u have a VHS tape playing a movie & switch from VCR to TV, you will see the channel that is on the VCR not the cable box\ antenna input. example:Cable channel is on Ch.122, & your TV must be set to Ch.3 to view cable.If your VCR is set to Ch/5 you may not see that Ch.122.You will still be able to see your VHS tape when u place the VCR\TV switch back to VCR. I am going to share wt.u a $100,000,000.00 trick:put any ch.on cable box.Switch VCR\TV to TV,change channel ON VHS tuner.When u come to the [picture] that the cable box is on,Then that is the Ch.u can see cable ON the VHS. U owe me!!
