Hook up of new dvd player to comcast cable box

My aunt just bought a Sony CD/DVD Player and asked me to hook it up to her GE television that is older and does not have any hook ins except for the cable line on the back (nothing else!) She wants me to hook it up through her cable box so I did so by hooking up the audio and video cables (red white and yellow) and still have nothing. The DVD player itself has component video out and coaxal things but the cable box only has s video and more cable rf things... I would appreciate any help I could get!!! Thank you!!!

I ran into the same problem, Radio Shack has a device called a RF Modulator. The model # is Model: 15-2526 | Catalog #: 15-2526, the price is $27.49. On the back there is a place for cable in and cable out to tv. There are the 3 rca jacks on the back also, 1 video (yellow) and 2 audio (red/white) That simple. Set the tv to channel 3, turn on the dvd player and it automaticlly puts the dvd on the screen. Turn it off and back to normal cable. Works great, I use one myself. hope this helps. Steve

I'm trying to hook up my Panasonic DVD player (model DVD-S29) to a Comcast cable box but have not been successful. My DVD player only has Audio Out connections, with no audio in connections. I...


the cable in should go to the box and cable out from the box to the TV.These should all be coaxial cables correct?Hook up the DVD player to the TV using the red,white,and yellow cables is also correct.In order to watch a DVD,you have to use the input select button on the remote for the TV ONLY to change inputs.If you have a universal remote for the TV and not the original factory remote provided with the TV,you need to use the menu button located on the outside of the TV.I just searched on my flat screen and was unable to find an input select through the menu button.It may not be possible on this TV if you do not have the original remote and if you own a universal.My universal for one of my older TV's is about 7 years old so I do not know if newer ones have an input select option.If they do not,it is most likely due to patents and royalty payments which these cheap remote makers do not want to pay.Anyhow,let me know if this helps.Just comment here and i will get an auto link to your comments.Good luck!

About installing my cd/dvd player to my console


This is a bit confusing. You cannot hook a CD/DVD player up to the PS2 console. If your trying to figure how to hook a PS2 console and a CD /DVD player up to a AV system. you need to hook the PS2 Yellow, White and Red cables to any input. Not just a DVD or CD input. Yellow is Video you need that. Hook the red and white to the same selected input.
