    I have a SONY SLV-D 500P  DVD/VCR combo
    I have a RCA Direct TV satellite receiver
    I have a pioneer cable box
    I want to hook up everything and be able to tape(VCR)  either satellite or cable whenever I want.
    I want to optimize the best connections..via component connections..

    ALL EQUIPMENT IS ANALOG RIGHT NOW SO KEEP THAT IN MIND FOR QUALITY...WILL UPGRADE DOWN THE ROAD....
    CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME A SIMPLE SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM IN HOOKING THIS ALL UP AND GETTING BEST VIDEO/AUDIO QUALITY AND HAVING THE ABILITY TO TAPE TO THE VCR FROM CABLE OR SATELLITE. 


    THE CABLE BOX HAS CABLE IN & OUT TO TV.....
    THE SATELLITE RECEIVER HAS SATELLITE IN.......OUT TO TV (rf)....IN FROM ANTENNA (rf) ,..........S VIDEO......R & L AUDIO  ....VIDEO

    I am sure that the operating manuals that you have for your equipment must have schematics as to what goes where. It is very difficult for us to post a general layout of your connections, as we donít know what type of connections are available on your items. The best thing to do is get someone where you live to connect everything for you, even with a little reward, money wise or otherwise.

    I usually start with drawing a box for my home theatre AMP then mark the ins and outs on it. Next I add the receivers (Sat,cable, etc) with their ins and outs and draw lines to the ins and outs on the amps I plan to use. This lets you plan how to use the available inputs. Sometimes you don't have enough and need to look for solutions by sinmplifying wiring or running feeds between two components.
    You can use paper and pencil for this or a more sophisticated software like Visio.
    Next I draw the lines in (from sat, cable, etc) to the receivers.
    Then all the other components (DVDs, VCRs, CDs etc) with their ins and outs.
    Finally I add the speakers in and figure the length of runs necessary for speaker wires.
    Most manuals have sample schematics that should help you. After I get everything working, I take a copy of the back panel picture in the manual for each receiver, component, etc, and label each set of inputs and outputs with where "it goes" or "comes from". This will prove invaluable when you need to add a component or make changes in the future (or have to tear it apart to move). I also label all of the cables at each end to say where they go.

    When the cable guy showed up with my HD box he found a schematic showing what to hook up to, found labelled wires and digital optical cable waiting to plug in and a labelled cable input all positioned in the cabinet where he needed to place the box. I didn't want him experimenting on my system.
