I read the other postings and they all seem to deal with connecting tvs dvd ps2 and cables satalite ect. What about the cables themselves?

All my equipment is the latest stuff u can get. Just try messing around with that, but leave all three into the vcr and just mess around with the one's on the tv. I have Dish satellite service.
