I should begin by saying I am slightly better than a novice technically. I have tried to search, read manuals, etc. and it is all confusing. So I thought I would just put out my particular situation to see if anyone can help. We have a Panasonic DMR-ES35V DVD/VCR recorder. We have a Charter Cable DVR/set top box. We just bought an HDTV - Samsung PN51F5500. We are now using the DVR for almost all recording, but we do have DVDs and some Videotapes we would like to be able to watch. My question is, how to do the hook-ups. Of course, the DVD/VCR does not come with HDMI connections. I am assuming I don't want to run the video from the cable input through the DVD/VCR and then to the TV (the usual connection) since it is an HDTV. I am assuming something would be lost. How do I do the connections?
Also, I want to add an older receiver (Panasonic SA-HE100) to the system as well. Should I ask about that in a different forum?
