Labtop to RF TV?

Hello Robotek,

I'm wondering if you know if it is possible to connect a labtop to a RF connection only TV? The labtop has both 15 Pin connection and a S-Video connection and runs on Vista. I also have a Cable box, and DVD/VCR Player connected to the TV. Is there anyway to use any of this to connect my labtop to my TV? Thanks for your time.

    The DVD/VCR has a S-Video connection. Is that the same as a SVHS input? The TV lacks a SVHS connection but has a red and white audio inpts in the back? Could those be used to be connected to the labtop somehow for sounds?



    So, What cables to I have to get in order to connect the labtop?

Hi

If you have a SVHS input on the VCR,or the TV, you should be able to get video that way. You will also need to run sound from the h/p out on the laptop, and corresponding audio connection on the TV/Sound System, or you could still use the laptop for sound. Up to you.

Have a quick look for any SVHS input sockets on the back ot he gear and let me know what you find. Cheers

    yes, S-Video is the same as SVHS. It is not likely that you can get the S-Video format to convert to composite video in the VCD/DVD,



    On the TV do you have a yellow video input socket. OR what sort of Video connection is available on the TV. Some have a 21 pin connector called a SCART that can take SVHS signal. Let me know the model of the TV if you are not sure.

I'm trying to figure out how to connect an apex digital t.v. converter box to a hitachi clu-5722tsi television...how do I do this? please help!! picture is the back of the tv..but then I also don't know...


Most digital converters provide two types of output: an RF output that connects to the antenna input of your TV and left audio, right audio, and video outputs that connect to the corresponding inputs of your TV. The RF output connection produces a digital picture on channel 3 or 4 (selected by you at the converter) with your TV set to the appropriate channel. The L/R audio and video connection produces a better quality picture. Choose one or the other, but not both. The picture you provided shows three possible inputs for the L/R audio plus video arrangement.

Can't find where to connect for dvd. no white,yellow,or red plug.


Hello, Thank you for the opportunity to help

Sounds like you got a pretty old tv there, its frustrating not to see the RED/WHT/YELLOW plugs on it. This is because this tv was made when that was not out yet. So are you out of luck? No, you ar in luck but it will cost you a little money.

You can purchase one of these RF modulators at Radio shack for like $29.95.

OR

If you have a VCR, Generally they have these plugs out the back of them you would plug the DVD into the VCR in the Video IN. You're TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 (dending on your vcr) You vcr will need to be powered ON then tuned to VIDEO INPUT. You can do this by using the remote's up/Down channels buttons or pressing input on the remote depending on the VCR.

The VCR will need to be connected to the TV's coaxe port on the back, That port looks like this:

If you do not have a VCR you would purchase a RF modulator you TV will need to be on channel 3! The modulator is connect to the port pictured above above. The DVD is then introduced to the ports on the back of the modulator witch looks like this:

Satellite connection to tv doesnt recognize


At least you know the set does work. I'm also assuming your satellite receiver is working and that all your cables are good.

There are two ways to hook up to the TV: RF (antenna) and the A/V jacks. Maybe the seller was using the RF input (the threaded round connector where you screw on a cable connection, then choose channels with the set's tuner), and you're trying to connect using the A/V jacks (the red, white and yellow RCA jacks). If that's the case you need to switch the TV to those inputs. You may need the original remote to do that if the TV doesn't have a front panel TV/AV button.

The other possibility is you're connecting the satellite receiver to the RF connector and the TV isn't on the right channel (usually channel 3 or 4). If you're using the RF input, have the TV autoprogram and it should find the channel. Most sets can do that from the front panel menu button.

Hope this helps. Thanks for sing Fixya!

Connect to dvd


I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

In order to connect a dvd player to the TV you'll have to purchase a device called an RF modulator. You can find one at Wal-Mart, Target, Radio Shack, just to name a few. The purpose of this device is to allow you to connect a unit with composite outputs (yellow, red, and white) to a TV that only has a cable connector.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Can not make the instalation betwen my tv and my dvd player


Most DVD players today have only RCA jacks for video and audio outputs, and don't have RF (channel 3 or 4) outputs. If your TV doesn't have AV input jacks (either too old or just not supplied on your model) you can't connect the DVD player directly. You'll need to get an RF converter to make the connection.

An RF converter costs about $15 and you'll find them where you can buy TVs. The converter takes the video and audio signals from the DVD player and creates a channel 3 or 4 output signal to your TV. If you don't have the cables already, make sure to get them too. You need a "dubbing cable" (RCA plugs on the ends, usually color-coded red, white and yellow) to connect the DVD player to the converter input jacks and an RF cable with "F connectors" on the ends for the output to the TV. Often the dubbing cable comes with a new DVD player, and the RF cable with the RF converter.

If this takes care of your connection troubles, please take a moment to give my solution a good rating. If I've missed something and can be of more help, please post a followup comment.

VCR/DVD


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would appear that the only INPUT possible is through the RF connector. Should this be the case, a workaround would be to connect the RF OUT of a VCR to this RF/ANT/Cable IN of the TV, set the TV to Channel 3. An RG59 patch cable would do the job. Should you want to connect a DVD, connect the Video/Audio OUTPUT of the DVD to the Video/Audio INPUT of the VCR. Incidentally, the regular cable/ant should be connected to the RF IN of the VCR.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Can't get my DVD player to work...


Your GE TV most likely doesn't have anything but a antenna input on it? If that the case to connect a DVD player you must purchase a RF modulator to convert the video and audio output of a DVD player to a channel 3 or 4 output. Here is a link for one at Radio Shack.
