How to hook up an old VCR to a newer VISIO TV to record and playback


Apr 14, 2017
I have an old Panasonic VCR that I want to hook up to a VISIO flat screen TV that gets its TV signal from a Direct TV receiver. I want the VCR to record an "on-air" program and then play that program back on the VISIO TV. How should the VCR be hooked up?

New model flat screens have the RCA and video connections with the Component cable inputs. Read your TV manual. Please list the connections the Direct TV box has and the TV inputs and output connections.
