VCR and Cable Box
S VIDEO jacks?
See page 7.
For best results, use this connection if:
Your cable company scrambles some channels, such as premium
channels (which requires you to use a cable box), but does not
scramble all channels.
With this connection you can:
Use the TV remote control to change channels coming through
the cable box. (You must first program the remote control for
your specific cable box; see "Programming the Remote Control"
on page 24.)
Use the TV remote control to change channels coming directly
into the TV's VHF/UHF jack. (The TV's tuner provides a better
signal than the cable box.)
Record channels coming through the cable box and channels
coming directly into the TV.
To connect a VCR and cable box, you need:
A splitter, which is a small, inexpensive device that you can

the cable box's input jack.
