Question about JVC Televison & Video
The JVC HR-A34U only has an RF (antenna) input. You would need a converter for composite video, S-Video or component video to RF. I don't recall seeing a component video to RF converter. Amazon has several composite video to RF options. One is https://www.amazon.com/RCA-Compact-RF-Modulator-CRF907A/dp/B0014KKV7W . For this, you connect the Yellow (video), Red (audio) and White (audio) RCA outputs on the cable box to the converter. Then connect the RF cable between the converter and the VCR.
I hope this helps.
(These modulators were very common back when VCRs and video game systems first came out. Most TVs only had the RF inputs at the time and the video signals from the new devices had composite video only.)

If you can get some of the stations without the box (often the case for those who subscribe to digital cable or movie channels), then one setup is to split the raw cable and feed the box and the TV, then have the box feed the VCR and hook up the VCR composite video and line level audio outputs to the TV. The VCR tuner would always be set to the VHF frequency your cable box RF output is on, usually ch. 2, 3 or 4. This setup allows PIP to work, with the TV tuner limited to unscrambled analog stations, and it also allows you to tape anything coming through the box, while watching unscrambled analog stations on the TV. However, it requires the VCR to be on and the TV set to the external video input to simply watch what is coming through the cable box. There are other ways to set this up with more flexibility using splitters and A/B switches, or you can look for a special switch box that handles the job. The above assumes your TV has composite video and line level audio inputs. The only way to have full flexibility to watch any scrambled or unscrambled station at the same time as taping a scrambled station is to have 2 cable boxes. The only way to have your VCR control the cable box and record different programs by switching the box by itself is to have a VCR with a cable box controller, also known as a cable "mouse". Hope this helps

put a tape in the vcr & press play ,if the picture still does not appear it is most likely that you have faulty cable/s(that is of course providing you have selected the vcr mode on the tv ie.rf/av)

Your GE TV most likely doesn't have anything but a antenna input on it? If that the case to connect a DVD player you must purchase a RF modulator to convert the video and audio output of a DVD player to a channel 3 or 4 output. Here is a link for one at Radio Shack.

SOURCE: VCR/Cable TV Connection
The cable should be connected to the antenna in jack of the VCR. The out to tv jack should then be connected to the antenna jack of the tv. When the VCR is in "vcr" mode (tv/vcr button) you should see it when the TV is tuned to the output channel of the VCR (usually ch3 or ch4).

first of all does your television and/or vcr have a cable connector and/or a set of rca outlets? if they have a cable connection in the back all you have to do is hook the cable from the antenna to the "in from antenna" on your cable box and then connect a cable from "out to tv" to "in from antenna" on the vcr and a cable from "out to tv" on the vcr to "in from antenna" on the tv. then you need to make sure on the converter box and the vcr and look for a channel selector and see what channel they are on. most vcr's have a selector for either channel 3 or 4, look at what channel it is set to and if your converter box has the same thing then match it with the vcr. then tune your tv to that channel and you should be able to work your vcr as long as the vcr/tv button shows that you are on the vcr. now if your tv and/or vcr have rca outlets and your converter box has the same then just hook the cable from the antenna to the cable box and substitute the rca cable for the regular cable and tune your tv to video or line input.
