If you have the cable box connected to your TV with HDMI I don't think the component outputs will be active. You will need to split the yellow video output with a Y connector and feed the video to both the VCR and the TV. If you don't have two sets of L/R audio outputs you will have to do the same with them. You will need 3 Y connectors with 1 male connector and 2 female connectors like this
