Hi There, It sounds like the cable people change the connection. For me to help you, I will need a detailed description of every connection, from where it is connected to the other end of the connect along with the name of the connection. Thanks, Mike

Tying to hook-up my 1100 dvd player to tv I have the three cables white yellow and red audio out to audio in on tv. the recoder plays but no picture. is the a certain channel i should be on?


The connection should be the cable box out to the DVD in, the DVD out to the set. The DVD should have a channel select, Either 3 or 4- set it to the channel that is not used by the cable decoder. which should also have a switch for 3 or 4.

Then all you do is switch between channel 3 or channel 4 with the TV remote or by TV channel buttons. One will be cable, the other will be the DVD.

Hitachi DV-PF 2U dvd player works fine when hooked directy to TV (channel 3) but won't work when connected through the new COX digital cable box. TV is set to channel 4, dvd player turned on, disc...


If the cable box needs to be set to 4, the TV will need to be set to 4 as well as the dvd player. The hookup should be cable box to dvd player to the TV for your system to work. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

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.

    Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


    check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.

    assume the cable tv box represents the converter box

    you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.

    Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.

    If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.

    You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?

    So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.

    the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.

    That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

    Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


    Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

    The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

    The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

    One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

    If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

    Yes. You definitely need to set your TV on a specific channel - GAME, in your case. Check your TV manual how to get to that GAME channel.
