Here is what you will need. This is assuming you do not have a HD cable box.
1) A two port cable splitter available at your local hardware or electronics store. VERY IMPORTANT- this splitter needs to pass up to 1000 mghz so you do not interfere with the functions of the cable box. Also, when purchasing this don't be fooled gold does not always equal good (a common mistake made by folks).
2) 1 small coax cable.
3) 3 Additional coax cables. (1 long enough to reach from the wall to the cable box. 1 long enough to reach from cable box to the TV. 1 long enough to reach from wall to the VCR. These cables should be RG6 coax cable (about the width of a standard wooden pencil)
4) 2 RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White)
Here is how you need to connect the cables....
1) Use the small coax cable and connect it from the WALL to the INPUT of the two way SPLITTER.
2) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the CABLE BOX.
3) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the CABLE BOX to the INPUT of the TV.
4) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the VCR.
5) Use one of the RCA cables and connect to the DVD/VHS COMMON OUT on the VCR. Connect the other end of this cable to the VIDEO IN on the back of the TV.
6) Use the other RCA cable and connect it to the VIDEO OUT on the back of the CABLE BOX. Connect the other end to the IN 1 on the back of the VCR.
Here is how to set up the VCR-
1) Tune the TV to the video input that you connected the VCR to.
2) Go to the auto program in the menus for the VCR and select "CABLE" as the source and you should now be able to get all the channels you would normally get without the cable box.
3) This will give you the option to record shows from basic cable on the VCR. While copying these channels you will still be able to tune the TV to CH 3 for the cable box and watch TV normally through the cable box.
4) If you want to copy one of the channels that is only available with the cable box you will still be limited to only being able to watch that channel while it is recording but here is how you will do it.

Unable to decode HD is a common banner display message with these
combos. It simply means the unit is not engineered to process HD
signals. It is a model series limitation; not a fault as such.
This model incorporates a SD (standard definition) integrated digital tuner. It is a major pain in the proverbial not being able to receive HD, and not being able to skip them in any setup menu.
The only thing you could really do here is connect an external HD digital set top box (which would also contain SD channels) directly to the recorder's AV inputs at the rear, and then selecting the appropriate input on the combo unit to suit the source. You could then choose whether to view/record HD or SD via this method, rather than use the unit's built-in tuner.
Works just as well, with minimal error, depending on the signal strength and type of DSTB used.
It's crude, but cheaper, and does not require repairs or messy wiring.

SOURCE: On a Panasonic DMR-EZ48V I
I think it is usb, not sure why that happens though. Panasonic for some very weird reason mixes upper and lower case letters in some of their on screen bits, so you never know for sure.
I know nothing about this stuff but was having a similar problem with not being able to get the dvd recorder to record onto a dvd.
This was after I had set up the camcorder to the set the day before.
I finally went to 'input select' on the remote and changed it until it worked again, just go through each setting until everything is back to normal.
Somehow, it appears as if the dvd recorder got itself set to the camcorder and would not let go of that setting without changing the input select. I have no idea why because I never touched the input select before this, I always controlled everything with the Directv remote. Hope this helps someone.
