Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
It seems I have tried every configuration in hooking up the digital converter box and I cannot get the dvd player to work in conjunction with the box. I am using an rf modulator. I can either watch TV with the current hookup but that doesn't allow me to play the dvd player. When I reconfigure, I get the reverse

What type of Inputs do you have on your TV. (ANT IN, S-Videio, RCA Video,RCA Audio)
If you only have a ANT In or RF Coaxial hook up you will need a RF Modulator

Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).
RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.
RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.
I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.
