Question about Televison & Video
Its really hard to be able to tell ya without knowing what kind of tv that you have. along with the same with dvd player, vcr ect.
How ever I will try my best to kind of explain the general concept of it all.
On the back, and/or on the front of your tv your gonna see a yellow, red, and white plug. The yellow is always the video and the white is left audio and the red is the right audio.
On yoru dvd player and vcr if your tv has multiple inputs of the yellow, red, and white (make sure it says input near them) on the back of your tv. Then you can run a direct line from the (output) ones of your vcr and dvd right into your tv.
Then just change the "input" channel on your tv to switch between the diffrent ones" Now for your tivo and direct tv, normally these are just one box not sure why you got two, but the round cable (ajax cable) just run the output one into the input one of the tivo, then run it from the output of the tv, and screw that cable right into the back of the tv. Then just screw the actual dish cable right into the input of the direct tv box.
(note) their might be several inputs for the RCA (red,yellow, white) cables on the back on your direct tv box that you can hook your dvd, player and vcr into. if you dont got all the open slots in the back of your tv for it.
But the entire concept of it all is just making sure that on the input of the direct tv box is your cable that comes from your wall, then go from the output of that into the input of your tivo, then that output right into the tv.. as for your dvd and vcr, just make sure that those outputs run directly into the inputs of the tv, or directv, or tivo.
Hope this helps.. sorry it cant be more detailed without knowing exactly what kind of products you have.

If you supply the make and model number of your TV it will be easier to provide you with instructions on how to connect all of your units.
