    When it comes to hooking up my DVD/VCR to the DTA I have a problem.

    The back of my DVD/VCR looks like this:

    The incoming cable looks like this:

    So what do I need to get to plug the incoming cable into the Coaxial Jack?

    You must have a tunerless or line input DVDR. Since the cheap DTAs only have RF output you're out of luck. You could either get a better STB(one with line outputs) or a round-a-bout way would be to use a old VCR(doesn't need to be able to play tapes but merely turn ON) feed your DTAs RF output to your VCRs RF input. Tune CH3 on the VCR and use it's line outputs to go to your DVDR.
    If you don't have a old VCR around, they can be had for as little as $5 at pawn shops, Goodwill, garage sales or Craigslist.org.
