As jvincent has told you, the 8UK series of Panasonic Plasmas are industrial monitors with no built-in tuner. They don't even come with speakers unless purchased separately.
You can plug the cable from the wall into the Cable IN RF of your DVD/VCR unit. You can then use a composite cable (yellow), S-video, or even better, if your DVD/VCR unit has component video outputs (Red, Green, Blue) you should use that.
However, please be aware that all of those options will not give you a high-definition image from any of your sources.
For that you will need to get a HD set top box from your cable provider and subscribe to a HD channel package.
Please update your User Profile with your location and service provider so we can better help you with specifics.
