How to connect my dvd & vcr with the converter box

I got the converter box to work, now I can't get a signal through the coverter box to the tv for my dvd or vcr. How do I get this connection to pass through as my tv only had one connector for incoming signals. prior to this I had the antenna and dvd/vcr cable on a split adapter attached to this one connector on the tv. I moved this connector to the converter box, and I have tv signals but can't get signals from the dvd or vcr players.

Here is my setup.
1) Separate DVD player 2) Separate VCR 3) Digital to Analog Converter box 4) Analog TV 5) Rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna
The antenna goes into the converter box.   The RF-output of the converter goes into the RF-Input of the VCR The DVD output goes into the front input jacks of the VCR The VCR RF-output goes into the TV RF-Input The VCR Line output goes into the front of the TV
To watch DVDs, we turn on the DVD player, turn on the VCR, and set the VCR channel to L2, and tune the TV to channel 3.  The converter is off.
To auto record on the VCR, the converter must be tuned to the station being recorded.  The converted must be turned on, the TV can be off. 
To watch VCR tapes, turn the TV and VCR on.  The TV is set to channel 3.  Just press play on the VCR.
To Watch TV.   Turn the TV and converter on.  The TV is set to channel 3.   Change the stations using the converter.
