I think you are meant to make a connection between the tv and the dvd player then go from the dvd player to the video. When you turn on your dvd player it should immediatly switch to your dvd main screen and on your dvd remote there should be a button where you can switch between the dvd and video main screen. I have not got your devices in front of me but read in your dvd manual which button on your remote is used to switch between devices and experiment with your connections. Good luck.

Trying to connect a new Samsung Bd-C5500 to my old Sony tv. Can't even get the set-up screen to come up on the TV. All we have is a TV, a Cable box and this new Samsung. We bought it because it is...


That depends on the connections your Sony TV has. If it has only the coaxial connector (the cable looks like this: http://www.w-l-t.org/Pix/Coax%20w-F%20connector.jpg), then you'll connect a VCR to that, and then the blu-ray player to the connections on the VCR using the composite cables (yellow, red, white). Switch the VCR to channel "L" or "Line" (usually below channel 2), and it should pass the video through to the television. Of course, if the TV itself has the yellow, white, and red connectors, you should just be able to connect the Blu-ray directly into that.
Also, it may be possible to connect your cable box as an intermediary like I just described with the VCR, depending on your model of cable box.

It says "play" and my tv is on Ch.3 but there is nothing playing. I tried turning my direct tv off but it made no difference.


do you want to record programs on your vcr? connect the out to tv cable from your dir/tv box to antenna or cable in on the vcr, then connect the cable from out to tv on the vcr to antenna or cable in on the tv, you'll have to select channel 3 on the tv to get the vcr to show a picture and you will need to select channel 3 on your vcr to record the channel selected on your dir/tv box. confusing?thanks and good luck.

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.

    I need playback channel for tv to be ch.4 -


    Solution 1

    How to set the DVD Recorder+VCR’s RF output channel
    Turn off the DVD Recorder+VCR, then press and hold
    CH (v/V) on the front panel for about five
    seconds to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or
    CH 04). “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on the front panel display.

    Solution 2

    Cable Service With Cable Box
    If a cable box is required in your cable system, follow the
    instructions shown below. This hookup permits both TV and
    DVD Recorder+VCR operation.
    To view or record a CATV channel:
    1 Tune the TV to the correct video input channel.
    2 Set the DVD Recorder+VCR to the output channel of the
    cable box using the CH (v / V) or the 0-9 keys on your DVD
    Recorder+VCR (e.g., CH3).
    3 Select the channel you wish to view on the cable box.

    Connecting VCR to TV


    Oh man dont shoot your stuff instead use your remote and go to your menu and select your input. You tv is looking at your coaxial input but you can select which input you want. 1, 2 front back whatever you need. channell 3 or 4 has nothing to do with connecting up your dvd if you connect and choose the front connection in your menu.

    if your DVD player supports a HDMI cable a single cable is enough for both audio and video channel.

    but both your player and TV must support HDMI.

    Cannotsetorplaydvdorvcrtapes


    Please recheck the model. It looks like it is the DVP33040V/17 model.

    You said you cannot set or play DVD/VCR tapes.

    1. Is this unit hooked up properly to your TV?
    2. Is your TV set to its correct viewing channel?

    This is the tunerless model so the very basic way of connecting this to the TV is using the composite cables (yellow/red/white). Then find the correct viewing channel on the TV. Note:IT IS NOT CHANNEL 3 OR 4. It depends on your TV make. Most of the time it is called AV, VIDEO, INPUT, SOURCE, EXT, AUX, GAME,etc. Most of the time, the TV remote control has a specific button with those labels. You can also check your TV manual how to get the VIDEO channel when using the composite cables.

    Furthermore, if you would do recordings, you will need an extenal tuner (cable box or satellite box) for this unit. You have to connect an external tuner box using another set of composite AV cables - that is:
    AV out from the cable/satellite box to VCR IN on the DVD/VCR.

          OR
