thanks guys for your replies....
what if your VHS player doesnt have a composite input? can you run the coaxial cable through the VHS player first then to the receiver to record shows?
i thought since digital satellite signals are "digital", you cant record it onto VHS tapes since it's analog...pls correct me if im wrong...

You mean through the RF connector - sure - no problem. Just tune your VCR to channel 3 or 4, depending on the output of your satellite receiver.
What the DBS receiver does is receive the digital DBS signals and them CONVERT them to NTSC (analog) so your TV (and VCR, DVD recorder, etc.) can display them. There is a possibility that the content provider may require your DBS provider to use Macrovision to inhibit recording on that particular channel/program.
