All you should have to do is hit the TV/Video button on your remote. It also could be named AUX, or or INPUT. What this does is tells the tv to switch to the input you have the DVD player hooked up to. Otherwise it will keep drafting a signal off of your cable line.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The device unit?U must have DVD/VCR recorder player to record things out of cable tv or other tv signals.Not just a DVD/VCR player.Read ur manual for instruction,u hook up a VCR before right,the same principle.
Hi, VCR video signal wont come out from Component Video Out of combo unit, it is low resolution signal so you need to hook yellow-red-white video cable in tv for VCR output. Make sure to select VCR as source in combo while playback of VHS tape and select DVD as source when playing dvd disc in combo. Hope these info will help you. Let me know if you have additional question. Thanks.
It took some time, but I finally have this figured it out so everything works.
I have the same setup, but I had one additional piece to the puzzle that I had to figure out. I have an older TV and use and antenna, but had to buy an Audio/Video RF Modulator a couple of years ago to use my VCR & DVD player with the old setup.
Get yourself an Audio/Vido RF Modulator (you can pick one up for about $20-30).
Connect the TV to the RF Modulator.
You should have 2 connectors for your antenna. Connect one to the converter "To Ant" and the other to the RF Modulator.
Connect the convertor A/V cable to "IN" on your VCR.
Connect the cable from converter "To TV (RF)" to "UHF/VHF from Ant" on VCR.
Connect the VCR "OUT" cable to the RF Modulator.
Connect DVD A/V cables to A/V input on VCR.
Your TV should be set to Channel 3 (or 4, depending on your setup) and depending on your "input" connections, you should be able to view vidoes from VCR like this and DVD by changing the input (the button should be on your VCR or other remote). For ex. my input changes on my VCR from channels, to L1 & L2. My converter & VCR play on L1 and DVD's play when I change it to L2.
Now, I just have to figure out how to add the converter box to my universal remote. :)
You may have to buy an RF modulator ($20.00 at any radio shack or wall-mart) this will allow the hook up to work! ( has a channel 3 or 4 selector switch!)
I hope this is of big help!

Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder.
You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
Your problem is Copy protection on your DVD's!
Without going into techno-bable, your DVD player detects that you are connected to a VCR, (You have no choice in your case as it is built-in), there are methods such as "Copyguard" and "Macrovision" that try to stop you from copying your favorite DVD onto VHS. The audio is left alone, but the video will go bright and dim, and the colors will be messed up, making the result un-watchable. You will find that the cheap DVD's you get for a couple of bucks at the discount store will play fine, as it would be too expensive to protect them.
There are "little black boxes" available as "video stabilizers" that will cure this problem, (but you didn't hear that from me!),otherwise you must connect into a t.v. without a built-in VCR.
P.S. Make sure the t.v. you switch to has RCA type A/V inputs on it, as you will have to purchase a separate RF modulator otherwise.
