    you will need a Coax Jumper cable connected to the "Out" from the back of the Cable box and the other end to the Coax In of the VCR/DVD player.
    Your VCR/DVD player should have Coax out that can be connected to the back of the TV.

    Now some Combo devices don't have that Coax barrel and thus you'll need to connect the AVI (Video) cables to the back of the VCR/DVD.
    Now you need to pat close attention here. This is where some Combo Devices get tricky. Check the back of the VCR/DVD player unit and look for what is the VCR/DVD Out connections. You may need another set of Video cables to run from the back of the VCR/DVD player to the TV Inputs.
    Here is a link that can also assist you on connecting your VCR/DVD player to our equipment:

    **Note: Some VCR/DVD player units have HDMI Out which can be connected to the TV's HDMI input at the back of the TV.

    ***** Very Important.... Do Not!! run the Main cable from the wall plate to the VCR/DVD player. If you do this, You will knock out the IP address to the cable box thus you will stop receiving the Digital Variety Coding to fail and your Pay per view & OnDemands will fail.

    if you have a older tv , you will need a RCA Jack(White,Red,Blue)
    Red and White is for Audio and the Yellow is for Video.Than connect the wires into the back of your TV.If you have a new TV, than you have to bypass.
    Meaning you have to connect the Coax Cable coming from the Cable Box to your TV to DVD player (IN) first than another short Coax Cable(Out) to your TV.
