The best way is to purchase (Very inexpensive at Best Buy) a Video Multiplexer Box which allows you to input all your Video Sources it handles around 5-6 different sources(RCA and S-VHS inputs are included) into this box and the multiplexer has a single output to your video monitor/tv. This is the easiest method with all YOUR needs. OR of course, get a new A/V Stereo Unit they have these days, most all of them will handle all you mentioned and more and then plays it back in 5.1 Dolby DTS (Digital Theatre Sound) or EX 6.1 Surround, whatever, but then you need to invest in not only that stereo but a set of Surround Speakers....so that would be a more expensive option of course...GOOD LUCK!
I am having trouble connecting cable, satellite. VCR, DVD, and surround sound.
I have a cable coming into the cable box, and the satellite cable coming into the satellite receiver(box). Now the info:
-I watch the cable on channel 4
-I watch satellite on channel 3
-I want to be able to record both cable and satellite with my VCR.
-be able to watch both VCR tapes and DVD disc(obviously)
-Each box(cable, satellite, VCR) have a cable in/out and red, white, yellow, Av connections. The only one that doesn't is my DVD player which has an S-video connection.(Thats whats confusing)
Any help would be much appreciated. I am banging my head against the wall trying to get it to work.
