If you have cable from the wall without cable box, buy an RF modulator. Plug coax into one end of rf modulator, and red, white, yellow cables from an RF modulator that has a RYW OUT to the IN of the DVD player, then a RYW from OUT of dvd player to TV.

If you have a cable box, use RYW instead of coax

There are other possibilities.

RYW means Red Yellow White (better known as a Composite or A/V cable)

    If the player only has one set of Red, Yellow, and Whites, then it is a simple player instead of a recorder. If your TV has a red, white and yellow plug-in, then run a red, white and yellow from the DVD player to the TV, and change your TV to the aux or video channel. If your TV has coax only, get an RF modulator - a red white and yellow will go from dvd player to RF modulator, and then RF modulator has a coax screw in that will plug directly to TV. With an RF modulator, the tv will play video on either ch.3 or ch. 4

Coaxial cord won't fit on VCR/DVD


Are you sure that the port that is unthreaded is actually coaxial. I've never seen an unthreaded coaxial port, just unthreaded push on connectors.

What color do you see on the center ring on the connection of the vcr?

Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

Connect magnavox dvd to ge tv HELP!


You need to go get an RF modulator. They can be purchased at Radio Shack or a number of other electronic shoppes for a reasonable price.

The RF modulator connects to the coax cable connector and it has inputs for the RCA connectors.

Cheers ... Best wishes

GPX PD808B Portable DVD Player


The pin on a regular 3.5mm av to rca is TOO SHORT. If you get the unit from GPX, you'll note it is a bit longer. I found this problem also affected Sony and other portable DVD players - the regular 3.5mm plug is TOO SHORT. I haven't found a source other than GPX for the av cable with the correct length plug. Weird but true.

How do I hook up a dvd player recorder to my tv, so I can record? thank you DEE


Hi dbird30,
You will notice that your DVD player has two types of cables, one that is three cables in one with yellow, red and white colors; and other that is bigger and cylindrical, we call this a coaxial cable. To record from the TV you must unplugg the TV's cable and plugg it into your DVD player, plugg it where it says 'cable' or 'input'. Now you must connect the coaxial cable it came with your DVD player and plugg it into the DVD player where it says 'to TV' or 'output' and connect the other side of the coaxial cable to the TV. At the end you should see that the cable that was plugged into your TV is now plugged into your player, and the player is now connected through another coaxial cable to the TV.

Hd tv to vcr


What model and manufacturer DVD/VCR combo are you using. if it has a HDMI port, you should buy a HDMI cable to your combo player than to your HDTV (most don't have this High Definition port.) 6f3606c.jpg
 otherwise, it probably contains a composite port, connect the red to the red (Left) white to white (mono) and yellow to yellow (Video) than connect the wires to the matching port on your HDTV) then switch the input to AV or Composite. 9701d83.jpgb5e3eb0.jpg


If this fails, you need a coaxial cable.85dec5e.jpgconnect a coaxial cable to your player then to the coaxial port on your tv. change the input to "either Coaxial, Cable 3 or any input that sets it to coaxial input.
