Can't go through the VCR in the normal way. The DTV box must be tuned to the channel you want to record and left there. Cannot tell VCR to tape one channel and watch another nor tape multiple timed and multiple channel shows unless the DTV is tuned to that specific channel. This makes most VSR functions useless.

First of all, the change is actually goping from analog over-air broadcasting to a digital signal. Second, if you have cable or satelite, you don't need anything. The only time a converter is required is if you use rabbit ears or an external antenna. In your case, the TV DOES have a digital tuner so you DO NOT need a converter in either case.

Yes you can first connect the converter box to the antenna first. Next hook the tv out on converter box to vcr in on vcr. Next hook the vcr out to the tv in and watch vcr and converter box on channel 3 sometimes channel 4.on the actual tv and of course change channels with converter box remote. For dvd player hook it straight to tv with red,white,and yellow cables that come with your dvd player. Then to watch dvd player if it's hooked up that way you have to put your tv on a input like video 1 or input 1. This can be done by using the tv remote and looking for a button that says tv/video or input or source button. This is some common names for that button on tv remotes.

The only way you can tape a different show than you're watching is to do as you have done: purchase a second converter box and connect it to the VCR as you did with the TV. You can pick up a device called a splitter which will allow you to divide the antenna signal between the two boxes.
There are some problems with the splitter arrangement. If you need to adjust the antenna position to get a good signal on one channel, like the one you want to watch, that may mean it isn't in the best position for another, like the one you want to record. You might need two antennas for the best performance.
Also, you can't program recording on different channels at different times unless you'll be home to change channels on the converter box. The VCR will only find a signal on channel 3 or 4, depending on how you set up the box, and you'll always record on that channel. The TV channel you record will be chosen by the converter.
Finally, you need to connect both the VCR and the converter box to a single antenna connection on your TV. There are two ways to do this. One is to use a splitter again. Normally they are used to split a single antenna input to two ouputs, but they can also combine to inputs into one output (basically you just use it backwards). Connect the ouputs from the box and VCR to the splitter's output connectors, and then go from the splitter's input connector to the TV antenna connector. This arrangement may not give the best picture quality, though. An alternative is to use an "A/B" switch, which allows you to choose which source connects to the TV.
It sounds more complicated to hook up than it actually is. It is more complicated and less flexible to use this setup than it was before the switch to digital broadcasting, but they call this "progress."
Hope this helps. If you need more information, just post a followup comment!
