Audio Video hook up

Hello, I need help in how to hook up these components so everything works.
See photo below
1.Top Box is the Direct TV box.....
2.Next is the switch box which came with RV
3.Next is the Executive DVD and FM radio player which came with RV and I need it for the surround sound system.
4.Next is the NEW DVR, and VCR recorder and player, since I don't have the Direct TV DVR I purchased this to do the same thing.
I have 3 outlets in the upper right cabinet.
One is for up to 6 power cords, the second is for two coaxial cables, one says
from Dish ( ot sur if this means Dish TV or what.) the second says Roof Atenna.
Next to that is a switch that turns the automatic satillite on and off.
Now how do I put this all together to make everything work.

you see the red and white are for audio and the yellow is for video

The outputs connect to the inputs

Everything has to be turned on for the way I am telling you to hook it up for it to work right
The Coax that says From Dish (Must have Dish Hooked up and not sure where that is at on your trailer) goes to the Direct Tv box Coax Input

Direct TV output goes to the Input on the NEW DVR, and VCR recorder and player

The DVR Output goes to the Input on the Executive DVD and FM radio player

The Output from the Executive DVD and FM radio player can go to the Switch Box

Roof Antena can go to the switch box

When switched to the Roof Antenna it will not do surrond sound unless it is routed to the Executive DVD and FM radio player

Hope that gives you some sort of direction or help to get you where you want to be

If all else fails try hooking up the outputs to the inputs and test to see what it does and it if is what you are trying to accomplish - without being in front of the equiptment and being able to really see the labels it is very hard to give you accurtate advice on how to hook it up
