Connecting TV with FM Stereo Receiver, DVD Player and headphones

I am having trouble finding the correct hook up of cables connecting a TV with a FM/AM stereo receiver, head phones and a DVD player.
A simple diagram would be very helpful.

    Are you trying to have the sound from your TV and your DVD go through your stereo so you can hear through speakers and headphones?

    All TVs and stereos are different. But generally you want to use "line in" and "line out" connections. (the connectors are usually in red and white pairs) The TV may be the difficult element because not all TVs have "line outs".


    If you are only concerned with amplifying sound from DVDs, I can help you. All you need is a stereo RCA cable (in pairs, red and white) that is long enough to reach from your DVD player to the back of your stereo. They look similar to this: http://tinyurl.com/7m8wp2
    Connect the "line out" from your DVD player to a "line in" on the stereo with that RCA cable pair making sure to connect white to white and red to red. Depending on tour stereo, it might be "aux in" or "tape in". (do not use "phono in"). Then make sure the input select on the front is set to "aux" or "line" or "tape" (depending on which input you used) and make sure the stereo is on when you watch DVDs. You can also plug in your headphones to the stereo.

    If you want regular TV sound to go through the stereo I cannot answer your question without knowing what kind of inputs and outputs are on your TV. Look on the back and make a list of all the connectors as they are labeled.

SOURCE: VCR, DVD, TV Connection

first let me say that a dvd player and a dvd recorder are different. the dvd player can only play dvd while a dvd recorder can both play and record dvd that is said. what i understand from what you write is currently is - out of your tv box into your dvd player then out of your player into your tv........ ok some dvd has two connections. line one and line two if your tv box is in line one then you should plug the rca cable in line two in. then you select line two on the dvd player then plug the other end to your vcr in line out so that is out of your vcr into line two of your dvd player.(some times one of the connection is at the front of your player hidden) if your dvd player only have one connection then you would have to plug out your tv box and replace it with the vcr cable and when you finish coping your vhs tape you plug in back your tv box to your dvd player. hope i could help..........

You will need a converter to record onto a VCR. I can't remember the when the FCC require VCR to have digital, but I know yours old enough it has an analog tuner. Take your antenna connection to the in on the converter box, then you can take the out from the converter box to the in on the vcr and finally take the out to tv to the tv. To record you have to have the vcr on 3 or 4 and use the converter box to do the channel changing.

Another way would be take the in to the converter and use RCA cables to the line in on the vcr, and line out to the to the tv. This will give you stereo sound.

Having trouble hooking old VCR up to new LG TV and Integra Receiver. Feel like I'm missing a step...


Look at the back of the tv. What is it labeled at where you plugged the VCR into. Should probably say composite in. After that's verified, go into the tv menu and make sure you have selected composite input. Should be no need for any settings on VCR, it has to be settings on tv

Dvd/vcr recorder magnavox model mwr20v6, i got probelm hooking up my dvd/vcr recorder to my cable converterbox an tv , because i broke the antenne/ out socket on the back of the unit, how can i get it to...


Hi,If I understood correctly you broke antenna out socket of Cable box..ok no problem,your TV and cable box should have other jacs/socket for this connection as well..
Take the A/V output of your cable box into TV possibly with RCA cables..than you can select the channel thru Cable box on TV ..(AV mode needs to be selected on TV )

** in order to listen and watch your
magnavox DVD 's "2xRCA audio" and "1x RCA Video" cables "OUT" should go to Tv or Cable box "IN" connections separately ..("IN" goes to "OUT" of other ..pls remember,Always reverse connected ) (audio will come thru Receiver and TV.)

Since you successfully connected your Receiver to play video on TV (one way only ) ,here is the second reverse action if you wish to listen or RECORD a program on your TV on
magnavox
** you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "SCART "connector " of your TV or Cable box .( every TV -cable box has different type of Audio out jacks )
** to "iRCA nput or "Optic Cable input"
of your
magnavox (whichever you want ,based on the necessary cables on your hand )

There you go..Tv/Cable box video and sound are both on the
magnavox for recording..

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to
continue f

I have Time Warner cable. I have a Symphonic SR90VE vcr/dvd that I have hooked up to the main TV. The cable box services a second tv in another room. I can't seem to get the main tv and the vcr/dvd player...


Cable goes to vcr cable INPUT, then run cables from vcr OUPUT to tv INPUT or AV.

Then put tv on input or av channel or channel 4 and use put the vcr on the channel you want to record.

Connecting my iPod and my DVD player to the TV at the same time


you can buy scart splitters to give you extra scart sockets and leave the cables plugged in or if you have 3 phono connecters (red/white/yellow) on the side or front, connect to that.

I have a dvd/vcr that does not have a coaxial cable hookup on back of vcr. I need to have my satellite hooked up


If your VCR does not have the coax connection then you should either have RCA inputs and outputs or the BNC type of connections. If you have the RCA style then you can connect your sattelite receiver using them. If you have the BNC type then you may have to contact the manufacturer to see if there are converters available to switch your RCA ends to BNC. You will also have to find out if the BNC connections will even work with the outputs from the satellite receiver.

Tv/digital converter box & vcr-dvd hook-up


I have a vhs and dvd player all in one
I have a converter box hooked up to my tv and vcr , dvd player combined
I can play my movies on the tv. ok.
you have to have your tv and vcr set on channel 3. if that is what your main tv is set up with. Or 4 if you have your tv set up with that.
Mine plays ok. My settings are for channel 3
My suggestion would be to check your hook ups. maybe they are not hooked up correctly
I had to go to www.google.com and did searches to help with hook up.
I can also record station I am watching with vcr on vsh tapes. I do not have a dvd recorder.
I found out that you have to have 2 converter boxes hooked to one tv., in order to record on on station while watching another. I have not tried that, as I don't have 2 converter boxes for one tv. I found that by doing google search also. Good Luck
