Alternately, go buy yourself a new VCR. They are dirt cheap for pretty nice models right now. Just get yourself one that has tons of inputs and outputs, and you should be fine. I know VCR's seem dated, but standalone DVD recorders are still hella expensive, and they just don't seem to be coming down in price any time soon, so a good cheap VCR is still a nice thing to have around for recording purposes. I got one for $80 a few months ago when my old VCR (which was like 10 years old) finally quit. The new one is super fast, has great image quality (comparatively of course, since it is after all VHS), and has a TON of inputs. Look around your house, you may even have a DVD player, VCR, or A/V receiver that has the pass through you want already built in. If you haven't looked at the back of your equipment in a while, check it out, you might be surprised by the additional connectivity options you find.
