I do this on an old Mac. It requires a specific card and specific software to do this. I would guess a PC needs the same set-up. Try S-video.

Sounds not working on super nintendo


There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.well I guess that you will have to hook it up to a DVD player or a VCR player to have it work on a digital tv
Note: pictured above is the original Super NES. The redesigned Super NES uses the same hookup steps listed below.
Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the VCR.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo AV Cable into the Video "in" on the back of the VCR.
Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono VCR with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo AV Cable into the "multi out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After system is connected to the VCR:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Set the VCR's TV/VCR button to VCR. You can put a movie in the VCR, press play, make sure you see the movie on the TV, then press stop. This puts your VCR into VCR mode.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the VCR and locate the input select. It is often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The Game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!
Recording Game Play

Set up the Super NES to play a game.
Insert a videotape and press Record. You can now tape your video game playing for posterity!
If after following these directions you are not able to view the game, try our Troubleshooting Tips.

We have no manual - need instructions on how to hook it to the TV.


Nintendo 64 Hookups

Quick Tip! If your system is connected using AV cables and you cannot see the game on your screen, it is likely all you need to find is the input select on your TV or VCR. Link here for help.
The Stereo Audio/Video Cable that is included with the Nintendo 64 will allow you to connect the Control Deck to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have Audio/Video inputs . Though your TV may not have them, almost all VCRs do.

If you DO have AV inputs, choose where you want to connect to:

Audio/Video Cable to a TV
Audio/Video Cable to a VCR

If you do NOT have AV inputs, you will need to use an RF Switch and RF Modulator for your hookup. The RF Switch and Modulator are sold separately. (Where to buy):

Connecting the RF Switch to a TV
Connecting the RF Switch to a VCR

Vcr hookup


Try using a S-Video cable if your VCR has the connection. Otherwise, use a RCA composite-video cable on one of the AV inputs of the TV. The cable has a Yellow, Red, White color, the same as the jacks it goes in.

My 42 inch sylvania plasma tv does not have a coax connection, so how do i hook up my cable to the audio/video connection? i know there is an rf converter to transfer audio/video to coax but i really...


Since your TV only has audio and video input jacks, you can connect those to audio and video output jacks on the VCR. Now connect the coax cable to the RF/ant input on the VCR and you'll have to change channels by using the VCR channel selector.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

All my problems are with the hookup of tv and dvd/vcr combo. Just can't do it. Is there anyone I can call tv repairman? I hear the Geeks only work on computers.


Simple matter. The Yellow cable will connect from Video Out of VCR to VIDEO IN of TV. Red cable will connect from AUDIO OUR (R) of VCR to AUDIO IN (R) of TV and AUDIO OUT (L) of VCR will connect to AUDIO IN (L) of TV. Play VCR or DVD and select AV1 or AV2 of TV using TV remote control.This button may also be labelled as TV/VIDEO on your TV's Remote Control

TV & DVD HookUp (No Box) Can't get picture


As far as I know, my Go Video machine when there was no box involved...

The cable came from the wall to the IN of the Go Video box. Then another cable coming from the OUT of the video box and to the IN to the TV. TV should be on channel 3. As far as I can remember, I don't need to push the TV/VCR button, but instead, have to channel down to below channel 2 on the TV to the LINE/INPUT selection. Once you go there, and the Go-Video machine is on, you should be able to see a clear picture.

You'll push the TV/VCR button if you want to toggle back and forth from the VCR picture to the TV picture (which will be technically blank since it's on the 'line input selection.)

Hope that helps.

Connection


This can be done. The uverse cables have to be hooked through the vcr, which must be left on all the time. Then the VCR to the uverse receiver. It's basically the same hookup as through a cable box.

Akai VSG285 video - I can't tune any TV stations thru to the VCR?


This sounds like a hookup or programming problem.

The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.

If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.

I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.

Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.

If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.

Has VCR to TV hookup been changed? Cabling errors will result in no display from the VCR (no tape video/audio, no menu display). If you are using the TV aux/VCR input connections, you must select this input before anything from the VCR will be displayed. If you've verified hookup is correct, then perhaps something is afoul with the VCR. Try hooking it up to another TV.
