I haven't really touched this part of my system. I got digital cable but I hook it up just like regular cable. I currently run a cable from the outlet to a 4 way splitter but I'm not sure if I'm connecting things right or if I should use the splitter. My VCR does not have an S-Video connection. What would be best for me. I would like to still have use of my VCR for recording of course but that degrades my picture quality? I'm wondering if this is the best way to go: 1)Cable from outlet to cable box (instead of to 4way splitter as it is now) 2)From cable box to 4 way splitter 3)From splitter: One goes to tv, the other one goes to VCR. There's actually a lot of connections going on. I would like to connect audio to my receiver as well. But what would be the best way to do this?
