I assume you mean a Digital Reciever. If so, and the Digital box has two scarts, connect as follows:- Connect the VCR scart to the "Input" scart of the DVD, the output scart of this to the "VCR" scart on the Digi-box, and the "TV" scart of this to the T.V. You need BOTH switched on. On the T.V. select to view the scart that the box is on and on the DVD select to view "Scart Input". You will now be viewing the VHS. When you want to view the DVD just change the selection.

I have a new digital tv but can't get my vcr/dvd player recorder to work. Can I use the converter box on a digital tv? will it work to record and play.


The output connection from the VCR/DVD needs to be different for the new digital TV. Instead of using the RF output from the VCR, use the video and audio outputs and connect them to the video and audio inputs on the digital TV. When you want to watch the VCR, select "video in" on the TV. The digital converter box should be hooked to the input of the VCR so you can record programs off-air.

Need to hook up dvd/vcr combo with converter box


Connect your rabbit ears to the Insignia. Connect the Insignia to the antenna input on the "cvd/vcr combo". Now turn on the television to show the "cvd/vcr combo".

The Insignia simply goes between your antenna and your television. In your case you also have a vcr so if you want the VCR to be able to play and record digital stations you will need the Insignia between the vcr and the antenna.

Wish to record on analog VCR and not affect digital TV reception


I don't think it will affect the digital TV reception, but if you try to use the VCR built-in tuner it is still analog and you won't be able to record digital channels that way. If your digital TV converter has video-out and audio-out connectors, then you can connect those to the corresponding connectors on your VCR to record.

Vcr & dvd & a CONVERTER BOX


Right, you don't have to plug DVD/VCR to box, just straight to TV to operate. If you wanted to record hdtv programs from the box to the vcr or a dvd recorder then connect box to vcr/dvd recorder to TV.

Converter box


1) Connect the coax cable from the antenna to the converter box input.
2) Connect the coax cable output of converter box to the input of the VCR.

This is the only way it will work but you will have many limitations such as using the programming features of your VCR.

The boxes are fine if you want to play prerecorded DVDs or tapes. If you want to record tapes you have to leave the box on and have it set to the station you want to record.
