Please list connection sockets on each device, together with description of their functions (as per respective manuals).

Like SCART or red, white, yellow composite RCA sockets or red, green, blue component video RCA sockets.

Or anything more sophisticated like HDMI.

I'd first of all link the set top box straight to the TV via HDMI cable. That'll make for best direct viewing, forgetting the VCR for the moment.

1) set top box "3." ------> TV "2."

Then I'd link the set top box via composite cable (yellow=video, red=audio right, white= audio left) to the corresponding input of the VCR and the same from the VCR's output to the TV's input)

2) set top box "7." and "8."-----------------> VCR "2."/VCR "6." ----------------> TV "7."

Unfortunately the VCR shows only one connection each for HDMI and component (red/green/blue = video plus red/white = audio) and they're both only "OUT".

With the above, setting your TV to the proper "External", you can view set top box tuned channel direct via the HDMI or practically monitor the set top box input to your VCR by viewing the latter via the A/V.

Plus, of course, viewing recordings.
