Connecting dvd/vcr to X1 companion box

I have a Panasonic dvd/vcr that I would like to my X1 companion box but it does not have the audio/video ports like the main dvr cable box does. How can I get this done?

do you have an Xg2 companion box that you can move to that location? if not swap an xi3/xiD companion for an Xg2 (same price).

I have no idea. I have looked all over the companion box and cannot find any of those numbers.

The secondary boxes that you have is only coax or HDMI out. You would either need to swap out for an XG2 (has the outputs you need) or swap locations with the dvr if that works for you
