    techman:
    thank you for your quick reply to my problem which was basically trying to figure out 'what cables/cords' connected to where om my
    'tv/rf modulator & dvd player'.
    The instructions in rf modulator & dvd player manuals were not very clear & lacked certain details in the words & diagrams.

    I got it working with your help & this site plus instructions & diagrams from the internet.

    Now I just have to get familiar with all the functions of the player & remote.

    Thanks alot for your help.

Well this could be a loaded question but what type of cables you using?? are there a red one a white one and a red one?? Ok then the yellow one goes to the video output on the DVD player and the other end goes to the video input of the tv. The red white cables are your right and left audio cables and red goes to red and white goes to white on the tv as well as on the DVD NOW make sure the cable on the dvd player are on the output!!!!!! Good Luck

Cannott get a picture on my tv from my DVD/VHS COMBO


Your DVD player should be connected to either the Yellow White Red connections on your TV set (same color to same color -- dvd OUT to tv IN )

OR it should be connected using the RF cables and connected inline AFTER the Direct TV Box....the box would block the DVD; and possibly the Direct TV Master box would apply 19 Volts to the DVD modulator....destroying the modulator.

Always OUTput to INput on the connections...


Also try with a new set of connections. make sure all the ports are ok.

Hope It's resolve all Problem,

I am trying to hook up a Memorex DVD player (MVD 2022), and I am not getting it to work. I need to see how to connect the cords or what cords I need. I can't seem to find how to download a manual.


Connect a yellow RCA cable from the yellow video jack on the DVD player to the yellow video input jack on the TV. This will give you the picture. For sound, connect a white RCA cable from the white audio jack on the DVD player to the white audio input jack on the TV. This will give you sound. Use the TV remote to select the input you connected the DVD player to, just press INPUT SELECT or VIDEO or the like until you see the DVD player's output.

Power on the TV and the DVD player. Place a DVD in the disc tray of the player and press PLAY.

If your TV has only a RF coax input, then you will need to buy an RF Modulator.

Bought a Dynex RF modulator, model WS-007, for my dad so he can watch DVD's on the TV with a minimum of hassle (e.g. no switching to video input) . Problem is when DVD player is switched on and DVD is...


Make sure you have the TV tuned to the modulator's output channel (3 or 4 as set by the switch on its rear panel). Also, turn the modulator on first, and then tune the TV to the modulator channel. This will make sure the set properly adjusts its automatic fine tuning. What you're describing sounds like the TV isn't exactly on the channel.

If the trouble continues, try switching the modulator to its other channel and see if the sound clears up. Enough of an interfering signal may be getting through where you have it set now.

If you still have no success, return the modulator and exchange it. These aren't high-precision devices, and often the output frequency is slightly off. On most TVs it's not a problem, but some tuners are more finicky than others.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    Need directions to install a dch70 box to tv


    dear woolifer ,
    I am not an expert but i hope i can help you..
    is it youmean digital cablebox?
    if it is try this-

    This is a problem a lot of people have with coaxial-only televisions because DVD players do not have coaxial (RF) outputs, which means they can't be connected directly into a television with only a coaxial (RF) input. The solution is to purchase a RF modulator, which is a small device that will convert the AV output from the DVD player to coaxial (RF).
    As for the instructions, I am going to assume the DVD player is not a combo unit with the VCR, and that you want to record TV on your VCR. Step 4 will include connecting your DVD player, but if the DVD player is a combo unit with the VCR, just ignore step 4 part as DVD connection will be included in the VCR set up. Actually, you wouldn't need the RF modulator if it is a VCD/DVD combo unit.
    1. Connect the coaxial cable coming out from the wall to your digital cable box in the ‘video in’ slot. It might also be labeled ‘antenna in’ or ‘cable in’.
    2. From the cable box, connect a coaxial or composite (yellow video cable) and stereo (red-white) RCA audio cables to the VIDEO IN terminal on your VCR.
    3. From the VCR, you will have to connect this to the RF Modulator using a coaxial cable from the VIDEO OUT on the VCR to one of the IN ports on your RF modulator.
    4. You can now connect your DVD player to the RF Modulator by using the yellow-red-white composite/RCA cables from the VIDEO OUT on the DVD player to another port on the RF modulator.
    5. From the RF modulator, connect this unit to your TV by using a coaxial cable. It will be from the VIDEO OUT on the RF modulator to the VIDEO IN or CABLE or ANTENNA IN port on your television.
    This should be all you need to get started watching your digital television. In simple terms here is what you did:
    Coaxial from wall to cable box
    Cable box to VCR
    VCR to RF modulator
    DVD player to RF Modulator
    RF modulator to TV
    You will only be able to record what is on channel

    Installing DVD player/RF Modulator with Star Choice


    The RF modulator probably had a red, white, yellow trio of RCA jacks (A/V jacks), a coax jack marked "antenna" and another coax jack marked "TV"

    Putting the DVD output to the A/V jacks allowed it to play out to the TV, which couldn't otherwise accept the DVD player.

    The satellite box probably has coax and a/v jacks as output. Use the coax as output to the antenna input of the RF modulator, and the A/V jacks of the DVD player to the A/V jacks of the RF modulator. Hopefully the modulator allows the A/V jacks to have priority over the coax input, so that when the DVD plays it "wins"
