Connecting magnavox dvd/vcr player DV220MW9 to a 40 year old TV

I'm using a digital conversion box and an old TV that works great. I have no problem connecting the digital converter but installing the dvr/vcr player is a problem. The old TV has no plug in audio/video jacks. Any installation suggestions would be helpful.

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

The Magnavox DV220MW9 VCR/DVD player does not have a TV tuner. It does not have an RF coax (antenna/cable) input or output. It does have composite and component outputs.
Basically, it will not work with an old TV that only has a RF coax input.
The only way to make it work is to use an RF modulator to convert the composite output of the VCR/DVR player to an RF signal (usually channel 3). The RF modulator would cost more than your old analog TV is worth.
Rather than spending money on a RF modulator, I would put that money to a modern digital flat screen TV that has multiple inputs.
Analog video is a dying technology. Since 2009, all broadcast TV has been digital.

I have a Samsung vcr but no remote. How can I download a program to my iPad that will work as a remote?


You can't, it is impossible. Your iPad has no infra red emitter on it. Things that work from iPad to television, do so via the home network to the smart tv which is also on the network. VCRs were years away from that technology.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

How do i watch my tv with a broken remote


You can buy a universal remote and program it to work with your TV. I have always had good luck with RCA universal remotes. You can also program the remote to run your cable/sat box and your DVD/blue ray player. You could also go to the web site of the company that made the TV and order a new remote. This would be more expensive but the remote would run all the funcitions while the universal may not.

Where can I purchase the Audio Video Connection for my dvd player I want to hook it up to my TV but can't find the correct cable Thank you Sandy


For the COBY TF-DVD7500, the video is carried on a single RCA plug cable. You can make due with a composite video cable (with three RCA plugs on each end) or get an RCA cable. The audio output can either be digital audio (which uses a special coax cable) or a headphone connector (analog audio).I believe the headphone jack is a 3.5 mm connector. If you use a composite video cable to your TV, you can connect the red and white plugs to an adapter (3.5 mm M to 2 RCA F). Then the TV speakers will get the audio track; otherwise you can use the DVD player speakers or the digital audio out.

I hope this helps.
