Set up for VCR with a broken cable input port

Specs: Windows XP
I have a simple setup using Direct TV (not HD). My dish input coaxial cable goes to the box then from the box to the VCR to the TV. After I dropped the VCR, the coaxial cable input port going into the VCR got pulled out entirely, only the output coaxial port is left, but it does have AV connectors (red, white, and yellow) on the VCR and the satellite box. Can I connect the VCR to the dish box using AV cables and then output through the coaxial on the VCR to the TV?? I need to be able to record programs on the VCR like I used to be able to before the coaxial output on the VCR was broken. I’ve tried using the AV cables and I can watch Direct TV when the VCR is on, but not off. I tried to record but it didn’t record the Direct TV channel I had it on. I’m able to play tapes in the VCR and watch them on the TV. I must have something set up incorrectly but I can’t figure it out!!!!
The VCR is a Panasonic PV-V4520, the TV is an old analog with only a coaxial input port. The Direct TV box is a model D11. Any help would be great!

You should be able to record the AV input. You must select them as source. No channel selection is available.
