Question about Sansui COM3101 13" TV/VCR

1 Answer

Connecting two devices with only one input on TV

I am trying to connect both a DVD player and a DTV converter box to my television at the same time. I am able to connect them separately with no problem. However, my TV has only one set of audio/video inputs (ie one yellow plug and one white). Both the devices I'm connecting need to be plugged into these inputs. Is there anything I can do to get around this?

Does your converter box have a coax out to tv jack? If so, connect it to the antenna jack on the tv. You should be able to see the box on channel 3 or 4.

Connecting dvd


First, are you sure the cable is good? can you try it somewhere else? Second make sure your DVD is setup to output via component and the TV is using the input your connecting to.

Your remote is only able to control TVs and DVD players. It will not control your DTV Converter Box.

My tv is on dtv but can only get channel 2 need help getting the other channels please


I assume you are trying to change channels at the TV, and you don't get a signal on any channel except 2. My guess is you have the DTV converter box connected to the coax (tuner) input on the TV and the converter translates everything to TV channel 2. If this is correct, you select your channels using the converter box instead of the TV.

If this is not a correct interpretation of your situation, please post back with more details.

I am attaching a digital set top box to this TV Model C21F200 and have a video/dvd player to attach as well. I can't seem to get both working. Can I tune the video to the TV with the set top box attached?


If your TV has AV inputs available, you can connect the video player there and switch to that input to watch it. I don't think your model does, though; I think it has only an antenna input connector. This means your set-top box will connect there but you have no place to connect the video player. In fact, most new video players only have AV outputs, and don't have an RF (radio frequency - a channel 3 or 4 TV signal) output connector, and you'd have problems connecting it anyway.

All is not lost, although you'll need some extra parts to hook everything up. I'm assuming the set-top box (STB) is going to your TV on channel 3 or 4, using a cable from the box to the TV antenna connector. If your video player does indeed have an RF output, the simple thing to do is get a splitter. They look like this:

pgh_pa_guy_13.jpg

Normally, a splitter is used to break one input signal (into the single connector) into two outputs (the connectors on the other side). But you can also use one backwards to combine two sources. So you can connect the RF cable from the STB to one output jack, connect the video player RF cable to the other, and connect the "input" side of the splitter to your TV antenna jack. If your STB is set for channel 3 output, set the video player for channel 4 so they won't interfere. Then you can tune the TV to channel 3 for TV signals from your STB, and to channel 4 for videos. I know, it sounds confusing.

If your video player doesn't have RF output, but just video and audio outputs, you need an RF converter. This device takes the AV output from the player and generates a channel 3 or 4 RF signal the TV can tune in. A typical converter looks like this:

pgh_pa_guy_14.jpg
Connect the AV outputs from the player to the jacks on the converter. The output cable from the STB will go to one of the round antenna connectors on the right, and the cable from the other one goes to your TV. When you aren't playing a DVD or tape, the converter passes the signal from the STB through to the TV. When you turn on the video player, the converter switches and you'll see the picture from the player. Most converters switch automatically, but on some you might have to flip a switch. RF converters are available from retailers who sell TVs or online.

I'm sorry if this seems unnecessarily complicated, but most TV sets today have plenty of inputs for all these things, and usually you just plug in the connecting cables and go. But with older sets or sets that don't offer the inputs, you need to go through these shenanigans. But once you have the parts hooked up, it's not too bad.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Can u explain how to set up the television system with my digital television box.


The digital box should have a round threaded output connector on its back panel. These are usually marked "OUT TO TV" or "RF OUT" or something similar. There may also be a slide switch nearby to select channel 3 or 4 output to the TV. On some boxes the output channel selection is through and on-screen menu. You only need to connect the output of the digital box to the TV's antenna connector, then tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on the box setting. Leave the TV on that channel all the time and do your channel changing on your digital box using its remote control.

If your TV has an AV input for connecting a device like a VCR or DVD player, you can probably connect the digital box that way. Most boxes provide stereo audio and video outputs, and you will get a clearer picture and sound if your TV has the input jacks. If your TV is not stereo and has just a single white input jack for audio (instead of red and white ones for stereo right and left), you'll need a Y-adapter to join the audio outputs from the box together to feed into the TV.

On the off chance you have a digital box with no RF output (I've never seen one since they need to work with older TV sets, but I don't know evey model), and your TV doesn't have AV inputs, you need an RF converter. The converter takes the audio and video signals from the digital box and generates the channel 3 or 4 TV signal that your set can pick up with its tuner. You can find RF converters at larger retailers and online.

I cant find the av jacks to hook up my dvd player


This model doesn't have any A/V jacks. Many low-end RCA models didn't include any special features. They can only pick up signals over the antenna input. What you'll need to connect your DVD player is an RF converter, which takes the audio and video signals from the player and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 TV signal that the set can pick up.

RF converters aren't hard to find. Radio Shack, Sears and Wal-Mart all say they sell them, and you can certainly find them online. Hooking one up is just a matter of connecting the necessary cable to the player and TV, connecting the converter power and setting the output channel. Then put the TV on that channel and you're set. Unfortunately, this will give you lower picture and sound quality than you get from a TV that allows direct A/V inputs, but it's the only option.

Want to use DTV converter with my Toshiba 32AF42


If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!
