    The same way you did before except the cable comes from the box instead of directly from you antenna.

    bocephus nailed it,
    a lot of the converter boxes do not pass-thru analog signals..(you might have to switch between channels 3 & 4 depending on you dvd and vhs)...

    Most people do not understand the difference between Baseband and RF connections for this stuff.

    Your DVD player and a lot of VCR's have them, they are the Red Yellow White jacks on the front.

    These are raw audio and video, and most newer TV's have provision for at least one connection.

    RF is the coax cable connections, and you need your tv switched to 3 or 4 to use that. When turned off your digibox should go through it to the tv.

    So antenna-VCR-TV, and baseband connections from any baseband stuff like DVD, games, or DVR.
