Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
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.
