    OK last night my overweight TV came crashing down

    the part where the cable goes into the TV broke off/back of TV part

    is there a way to use another cable to go from a VCR to my TV
    all i have left to use would be the three colored jacks' or whatever you call them

    You're using HDMI cables, right?

    If so, you should be able to now use those RGB cables.

    So the piece of shit didn't break and you're still stuck with it.

    You're watching football in non-HD? You can still watch football in non-HD today?

    You could use an rca cable for video but you would need an audio input for sound.

    I think you might be able to connect the Cable to the vcr and the vcr to the tv with other cables, but you might not be able to see all channels.
