Hooking up older Curtis-Mathes TV to a newer DVD player.
It is hopeless if the television will not stop cycling through its channels. That is an unattended operation and may point to there being something really wrong with this television OR it may be one of the televisions that has to be fed a signal of some type in order to stop cycling through its channels.
First, how would you connect a dvd player to this television: You would have to buy a part that has yellow red and white holes on one side and a coax output on the other side. I bought one from my local drugstore a little while back. It is Philips brand, and it says connect any dvd player to any television right on the package. I don't know if they are sold anymore, but I imagine that some store would still have them. Then you would disconnect the vcr and connect that part there with the dvd player connected to it (the part I described).
Next, if your television is the sort that needs at least one channel to be programmed into it so it won't keep cycling them, you would have to connect a converter box where you have the vcr connected right now. I know, this troubleshooting takes work, and there is no way to tell if this will work.
