isn't there any manual/ book? To connect TV to Sky Box VCR, connect the SCART lead from the AV1 socket on the TV to the TV SCART socket on the Sky Box. Connect another SCART lead from the AV2 socket on the TV to the AV1 socket on the DVD player and an RF cable from VCR to the aerial in socket on the TV.
For a digital to analog converter box, connect your antenna cable to the converter box. Then pick your output connection. Either set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and connect the coax out from the converter to the TV or connect the composite video (AV) to one of the A/V inputs on the TV (change the TV source to the appropriate input). The source is changed with the remote (TV/Video button).
If you have other devices like a VCR in the connection sequence, you could connect the converter box to the VCR (and record on channel 3 or 4) and then connect the VCR to the TV as above. You will be limited to recording and watching the same program unless you get another converter box or tuner.
Programming the remote will depend on the box. For other set top boxes, the connections will be very similar.
Anyways here are the detailed instructions for connecting a DVD recorder to a TV
The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to
determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV
source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This
is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD
Recorder and the TV.
If you have an older TV that only accepts
RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial
cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on
the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to
the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality)
option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
If you want to
use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source
(Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using
Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red
and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA
outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite
cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA
outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video
output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input
on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on
the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the
S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder
and the input on the TV.
To use Component Video cables and RCA
audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white
RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the
DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio
cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD
Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything
to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording
Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be
passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV
screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either
channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to
change channels and record.
If you made connections using
either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record
TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to
be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs
and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the
proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
If you have a
Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a
Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD
Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.
It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure.
From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables.
From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable.
From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right).
Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
If the tv does not have sound with out connecting the dvd then you are having a problem in your audio circuit have a tech look at it.if its only when you connect the dvd then you could have connect cables wrong.you cannot route a dvd through a cable box.any dvd s compatible with tv so long as the connections are there. goodluck.
