Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs
The FCC internet site tells you how connect the converter box to analog TV and VCR but only says "connect your DVD player in a similar way". What does that mean? Is it even possible to connect a VCR, DVD player and the TV to the converter box?
Yes you can first connect the converter box to the antenna first. Next hook the tv out on converter box to vcr in on vcr. Next hook the vcr out to the tv in and watch vcr and converter box on channel 3 sometimes channel 4.on the actual tv and of course change channels with converter box remote. For dvd player hook it straight to tv with red,white,and yellow cables that come with your dvd player. Then to watch dvd player if it's hooked up that way you have to put your tv on a input like video 1 or input 1. This can be done by using the tv remote and looking for a button that says tv/video or input or source button. This is some common names for that button on tv remotes.

3/23/09 --- I have found that you cannot put the DVD player signal thru the VCR on the way to the TV because the coding on dvds DISTORT the signal (making the picture fade in and fade out constantly) so people cannot record the dvds on their vcr and violate copyright laws.
I have been successfully manually switching all three (red/white/yellow) RCA plugs between the dvd player and the converter box (or the vcr when I plug the converter box into the vcr) depending on whether I want to watch a dvd movie or TV programming. I wil;l soon buy a Switch Box at WalMart for about $9 so I can plug the Converter Box (or the VCR with Converter Box connected to it.) and the DVD Player into it then just flip the switch to change from one to the other.
Remember, DO NOT hook the DVD player thru the VCR!

Pass the signal from your antenna to the converter box to the DVD Player then to the VCR and lastly to your TV
