using coax is transparent to the VCR. In other words the RF signal will pass through the VCR if it is turned off. Not so with composite (R-W-Y). The device has to be turned on. It'll be the same way with a VCR if you use the composite inputs. Component connections (R-G-B, Y-pB-pR)) are the same. The device must be turned on to pass the signal.

I bought a Panasonic DMR-ES20S DVD Recorder and I am pulling out the few hairs I have left on my head. (It is not a pretty sight)
What I want to do is simple. I have DISH Network so my singnal comes in through that dish box, into the DVD Recorder and out throught the TV.
Here is the problem. The TV only receives the Dish signal if the DVD Recorder is on. If it off there is no signal. This does not seem to make sense to me. Before when I had the VCR, it didn't matter if the VCR was on or off.
The cables out of the Dish box to the DVD Recorder are composite, red, white and yellow with a S-Cable. The connection to the TV are component red, blue, green with red and white audio. I have also tried just the composite from the DVD recroder to the Tv and still have the same problems.
Can someone help?
