You just connect everything into the Yamaha, then video out from the Yamaha to the TV. If you are using both s-video and composite video you may have to use both inputs on your tv.
Some TV's will auto detect, and the s-video signal will over ride the composite, you can test this and try to just use one input, but you may find you have to use 2 on the TV. Eventually your VCR will go away, tapes have been replaced with PVR's, and now DVD recorders are also available.
You will want a new TV with component video connections at some point.
What is the best way to hookup the following to an older TV with one S-Video input and two composite hookups? Receiver is Yamaha HTR5890.
Would like to connect Satellite Receiver, DVD player, VCR(to watch and record).
Should I bypass the Receiver completely for VCR video and go to the composite video and connect to the receiver with VCR sound only?
Any help will be appreciated.
