Hi mrs Grumpy well this is a difficult task doing this blindly not knowing what you have there But I will try to explain the fundamentals.
First you have a coax (black cord ) from the external antenna. That goes directly to the antenna in on the set top box.
From that box you need a cable that has male and female plugs on black coax that goes from STB to the ANT IN of the Video recorder. Then from the VIDEO recorder ANT out Take that to the TV Now you might not have the right cables as Ins and Outs have different plugs on them You need some that are Male to Male and Male to Female The female plugs are O with and o inside them ( cant reproduce it in text) Males are an O with a pin inside them . so looking back at your connections From the wall to thje set top box is Antenna in is a female plug and Antenna out is a male plug. so check what cords you need to plug these together in the sequence I have outlined.
You will also need some different types of plugs that came with the STB that will be colored RED YELLOW and WHITE connect these from the OUT to the AUDIO/Video in the same color sequence to the recorder Than the next set of colored plougs from The recorders Audio Video OUT to the TV. Now it should all be connected cotrrectly You TV set TO AV should show the channel that is selected on the STB. Use the STB remote to change channel preference for viewing.
Get back to me if you need to cloarify anything.
Cheers Thank you for using FIXYA and please rate the help box.

Try unplugging the unit from the wall, unplug the Aerial cable from the box. Plug the mains back in and switch on. Do a channel scan (with the aerial still unplugged). Reconnect aerial and do another scan. With luck it will have flushed the old settings and pick up the channel changes.
