How can i connect the dmres15 to my cable box, dvd/vhs player

I am trying to connect my panasonic DMRES15 so that i can record tv programs to the dmres15 and also other times record old vhs tapes to a dvd. I am wondering how to connect the cable box to the Dmr ds15, so i can watch tv, but other times, i can record tv programs and still other times, record vhs tapes to the DMR ES15. Can you tell me how to set up the connections in the back of each, cable box, DMR es15, vhs/dvd player, and the television.
Thank you for any help you can give me!! Michael

Yea I have the same set up and did the same thing as that your trying to do and what you have to do is run both the cable box and the VCR through your TV using the inputs. As well as a PS2 running through imput 3.

Hope I helped

    Oh sorry didn't realize that you wanted to actually record stuff off the tv. Okay heres what you have to do, I'm assuming that you have the cable wire intalled take the connecting wires from the cable box (pic 1) and plug them into the input on your VCR now your going to need an S-video wire and connect it were shown on the back of you VCR (Pic 2) Now just plug it into the tvs input line (pic 3).

    Okay from here you want to turn your tv to that input channel on your tv and turn your VCR on its first input channel and it should work correctly. It makes recording hell cause you have to have the box on the right channel to record the program

    There that should do it

Will not play or record. Get program message but

I did not solve the problem but opted instead to get a HD-DVD box from my cable provider. The cost of "maybe" fixing the unit vs getting a new one isn't worth it to me.
