Connecting other tvs in house

I recently subscribed to direct tv. I use to have two other tvs hooked up via splitters.The two new direct receivers do not have the old cable like connections. I tried using an old vcr receiver by running red,yellow, and white lines into vcr and used cable out to my splitter nothing, I also tried the blue, green, andred cables and again no luck. Can anyone help me?

    The signal is scrambled so you'll need two or more reciever to unscramble the signal and connect to its dedicated TV, 1 box per TV. So you can't split an scrambled signal.

    You can only split the signal when it's unscrambled, or are you trying to split the component (RGB) signal?
