Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the video (yellow) and audio (red & white) OUTPUTs of the cable box should go to the Video/Audio INPUTs of the RF Modulator. Thereafter, the TV should be set to Channel 3 (or whatever it is the RF Mod is using). This is done if and only if the TV has no A/V INPUTs and/or the cable box has no RF OUTPUT.

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

After some research http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/51hc85/docs/51hc85_om_e.pdf There is no coaxial input for this tv. Also as far as the RF Modulator you unfortunatly are trying to use that incorrectly. The RF Modulator is used to convert the RCA or Red Yellow White cables down to Coaxile, not vice versa. However if you have an old VCR or better yet a cable box you would want to hook up the cable box then enter the TV using one of the RCA jacks, HDMI Jacks, or other inputs such as Svid. But easy enough if you have a vcr you can access cable through that as well, and make sure the tv is sat to the correct channel or input to access the VCR or other item.

I want to know what type of cable wire do you need to hook up for HDTV and where you hook it up at on the TV


HD can come from two types of cables. A RF cable, normally it is a RG 6 or maybe a RG 59 coax cable. A HDMI cable is the other method of obtaining HD on your HDTV. A HDMI cable has a rectangular shape with small pins, its about 1/2 inch wide by 1/8 inch in height. The RF connector is about 1/4 in circular. A HD signal can come from a cable box or it can come from a DVD or Blue Ray player. Google these type of cables and look on your TV for the connectors.

My 65 inch Mitsibishi rear projection lost the red when viewing Cable, but the red works when viewing dvd's or playing games. Is it the red color tube or somthing less sinister?


Okay - lets' verify a couple of things -
1) how do you have cable connected - through -
A) Cable box or
B) no Cable box and the RF Coaxial Cable directly connected into the Rear Projection RF input connector.

\What I believe is that you have possibly a Component cable 'Red - Green - Blue' that is hooked up between your cable box and your TV.
Now the issue is that the Red connection isn't pushed in all the way on either the TV or the Cable box.
Let me know.
Blessings,

I JUST BOUGHt a ps3. I am trying to connect it to my tv through a converter box. I have it all connected, but it does not play on my tv screen. What can I do to make it play?


What do you mean converter box? RF converter? The video audio cables (R,W,Y) should be connected to the matching colors on the RF converter and the RF cable (standard cable)should be connected from the RF conv. where it say "to TV" to the TV and the TV should be set to either Ch3 o Ch4 (you can usually choose on the RF conv.) the cable from the cable provider should be connected to where it says "in from antenna or cable in on the RF conv.

If you have the box connected to the TV using an RF cable to the TV's antenna input, make sure the TV is on channel 3. You should at least see the boxes menu display when the power is on. Try channel 4 if you see nothing on 3. Every box I've hooked up has been on channel 3 by default, but who knows?

If you can, hook the box to the TV using direct video and audio connections, and make sure the TV is set to the correct input.

Unless the box you bought has "RF pass-through" (and if you got your box using a government coupon, it's a sure bet it doesn't) you will notice a marked drop in quality if you try to watch regular broadcasting with the box connected. I've been installing these with a bypass arrangement so people can still watch their analog broadcasts until they go off the air in February.

If the box does in fact have no display when you turn it on and your TV is on the correct channel, your box is defective and should be returned and replaced.

I have no idea how to get channels to tune in.


In order to get a picture of what is going on you must understand what is happening. The cable box converts all channels to channel three or four depending on what it was intitially set on. That means that you have only one channel coming into the tv. So you cannot program the set. You just have to put the TV on Channel 3 or 4 and leave that alone. Do not try to program the TV. Then change the channels on the cable box. The hitch is that there are several ways to hook a cable box to your set. One is with the RF connector, which is the screw on one, into either Antenna A or B. and the other is through the AV cables which are yellow, red and white. Yellow for video, red for right audio and white for left audio. If your box is hooked to the AV input then you must use the INPUT button on the tv to select the proper AV input. On that set there are several.

Well first off i am assuming that your jvc ONLY has rf connections?

Take the cable wire that hooks to the IN connector on your cable box and hook it to the IN connector on a 2-way cable splitter.Get 2 more short cable wires and hook one end to the OUT connector on the splitter and the other end to the IN connector on the cable box.Take the other short wire and hook it to the other OUT connector on the splitter then hook the other end of this wire to your tv (you must have two sets of RF connectors on your tv for this to work)Or you can tap the A/V connector off your cable box hooked to a video input on your tv.
