cables, cables, everywhere! (i.e. converter box dilemma)
Oh my goodness, have never seen such a mess in my life! Can someone please steer me in the right direction??
Our TV only has one connector place in the back.
We have a converter box, but were not yet using it, since we seemed to pick up more channels without it (albeit snowy).
(outdoor antenna. Depending on weather conditions and time of day, how many channels we'd get....)
Meantime, we had a splitter connected that we'd alternate cables to watch either the VCR or the DVD.
Oh yeah, the DVD requires another gadget (RF something?)
Every one of these devices require hooking up to electricity....
Okay, so now, just for the heck of it, I disconnected the splitter and only have the converter box cabled to the TV. Nice picture, and we have 4 more channels, woo hoo!
Big question: how can I hook up EVERYTHING? Plus, make the VCR so that we could record a program, if desired?
Is there any certain order, as to which should be connected to the TV first? (I assume that would be the converter box?)
I was thinking a 4-way splitter, but still would not be sure about the VHS recording factor....
