you can hook it up directly to the tv as you normally would. then to switch between the directv box and the dvd/vcr just switch the tv input, or depending on the tv some you just shut off which device you don't want to use.

(yes I understand you wont be able to record tv using it)

if you want to go though the vcr like the old days you will have to buy something like this

just make sure you get a HDMI to RCA and not the opposite device that converts rca to HDMI
