Hookup Layout

Since I won't have my entertainment center, with all the components present when I have my DirectTV installed could someone possibly help me with a connection walk through on how to hook up the following. The sattelite system will be the RCA dolby (connected with optical to the reciever. (I have that part down pat!) Sony Reciever, Panasonic TV, Toshiba VCR and Panasonic DVD player. (DVD will be connected via component jacks.) I want to make sure I am able to record, as with cable (On a digital converter) I have never been able to record on the VCR. Anyone know where I can find a schematic or can someone tell me what should go where?

Use S-video or RCA cords from the DirectTV to vcr, then vcr to tv(you should have an input or tv/video button to get to tv, video1, video2, etc.)
If/when you add the a/v surround receiver, you'll need to insert it inline between Directv recvr. and vcr.

A Google search of "tv vcr satellite connections" should give many different diagrams.
