Make a DVD playable from your DVD player. Hook your DVD player up to your VCR, VCR to the TV. turn on the stuff and put the VCR on the video input channel to get the DVD player. Play the DVD, record from the VCR... It's really not that hard. You were almost right, but you don't need to hook the DVD player to the TV, it displays through the VCR's input.

You may also have the option to view what is recording on the TV, if the VCR then has a output to the TV.
Most still cameras can't hook to the TV, only video cameras. What I understand is he has a still digital camera that takes video.
