Connect DVD/VCR recorder to cable box.


Jun 7, 2015
i am trying to hook up a dvd/vcr recorder to my cable box but all the output rca connections are being used by six lines that run into my television. Would I be able to connect my cable box/dvr to my television using a hdmi cable and then connect the dvd/vcr recorder with the rca cables?
Thanks in advance!
You will get a better picture using HDMI so that will be good. You say six RCA cables so I assume that you are using component video +audio (5 RCA cables). The component out on most cable boxes shuts down when you use HDMI. You can connect the DVDR using composite video+ audio.
