We would need the type of cables being run between your DVR and the VCR to give you specifics

Well from the STB to the VCR you will have probably one of three different kinds of connections....

 

 

1. Coax cable.  this will be a screw on cable running from the STB to the VCR.  Single cable connected to silver posts by a screw on nut

 

2.  A/V cables.  this will be a cable with 3 colored ends...RED, WHITE, and YELLOW

 

3.  Component cables (this one is not likely but I have seen a few VCR's that use these). This is a set of cables with 5 colored ends. RED, WHITE, GREEN, BLUE, and RED

How many threads do you need for the same question?  This was asked HERE and answered, but you seem incapable of taking the instructions given successfully.

 

Yellow from DVR Video Out to VCR Video In

White from DVR Audio Left Out to VCR Audio Left In

Red from DVR Audio Out  Right to VCR Audio Right In

 

The inset color of the RCA jacks (color inside the silver ring) matches the cables.

 

Set VCR to LINE INPUT, play the DVR recording and record on the VCR.  If that is too difficult then get Geek Squad or someone who understands how to connect components.  The connections are also shown in the DVR manual.

 

I have been using this exact set of connections for 2 years and it works fine.
