Question about Philips DVP3345V/17 DVD Player/VCR

No visable way to connect to cable antenna

This particular model seems to be missing the antenna input and out put cable connections. I have another Philips dvd/vhs combo and on the right had side of the back panel ther are two screw on type connections for the outside antenna to be connected to as well as running a connections from the combo to the t.v.. Is this particular model used only for viewing or recording directly from the t.v. and not connecting to the cable.

You're correct...sort of. I downloaded the manual for this unit (Owner's manual) and it says on page 9 that in order to connect to any cable or antennae source, you must connect through an extenal tuner, such as a set-top box or satellite receiver. If all else fails, an old VCR will suffice...just follow the hookup instructons on that page in the manual.
Hope this helps!

How do I change from a cable input signal to an antenna input signal on a slyvania TV


I believe that the new flat digital antennas have a coax/cable connection on them. In the menu of the tv. You should select TV or Antenna for an input. You may be lucky and connect the antenna to your cable connector and get some local channels.
You should give us the model number of your set. As each tv is just a bit different.

Hi, is the tv set to analogue broadcast, should it not be set to digital. I have a Grundig that does the same thing on analogue.If your tv is and/digi this might be the issue.

Why can't I get picture or sound when my Sound Bar, TV and Blu-ray player are connected?


You have to run an audio cable from the TV to the sounder and put the sounder on the TV input for sound to work. The first choice audio cable for best sound would be optical cable if your tv has optical output on it. If it does then you would put the sounder on the din input for sound when watching antenna or any hdmi source connected directly to tv. If your TV only as analog rca out or mini audio out then put sounder on aux input. I think your sounder came with mini to mini stereo cable. If your TV doesn't have mini audio out the get a optical cable or you can find a mini to rca red/white will work. Optical is your BEST connection and soundbar would stay on din all the time for best sound.

I had a TV amplifier Channel Master 3042 I need to know how to connect it


This amp can be used with an off-air antenna or a cable box (up to channel 141).

With an antenna: Connect your antenna to the input. Connect the output to the tv's RF (antenna) input (if you're only driving one tv from this amp), or a splitter (if you're driving several tv's).

With a cable box: Connect the feed from the cable company to the amp's input. Connect the output to the input of the cable box.

No signal stuck on channel 2 with black screen. Model KDL37M3000


Are you connected to a cable or sat box, Are you connected thru antenna input on tv or a/v input. If connect to box thru antenna jack of tv do channel search to pick up ch 3 if box is set to that. If connected to outside antenna still do channel searsh but be sure tv is set to antenna. If connected via av or hdmi the cable or sat box is bad.

Hi-\r\n Thank you for being here- We were watching our Sharp Flat Screened TV, beautiful nice picture. We noticed when we hooked the cable up for Direct TV in our new home, the input connection point was...


With Direct TV, you should use the video input (composite video- yellow/picture, red/right stereo, white/left stereo)
OR
component video- (green/video, blue/video,red/video white/left channel stereo, red/right channel stereo)

the antenna connector should never be used anymore unless connecting an outdoor antenna or VCR.

if one of your input connectors is damaged, it is not likely that is will be repaired without replacing the entire circuit board (expensive!!!).
just use a different "input"- there are usually at least 3 on most TV's

We are using an antenna as an input signal instead of cable and we can't find where you adjust the input signal to antenna instead of cable to the display.


Hi,
Can you please provide further details of:
  • Cable provider
  • Make and Model of your TV you are connecting to.
  • Was the Cable connected to the antenna input, or was it connected to a decoder/set-top box.
Thanks
Isaac

Don't know how to connect my vcr to my tv


You can either plug RCA cables from the audio and video, audio is red and white for stereo or just one of them for mono, the video is yellow, from the "outputs" on the VCR to the matching colors on the tvs "inputs". You can also connect the antenna output on the VCR to the antenna input on the tv and put the tv on channel 3 or 4, if done this way connect the antenna/cable to the VCR antenna in and connect a cable from the antenna out to the tv.

LXI VHS - No Video on TV


Hi Carol!

I'm assuming the box you have this connected to is a cable converter box. If this is true, it won't have inputs for video and audio; those RCA jacks are outputs to a TV or other device that can take that kind of input. Connecting your VCR outputs to those jacks does nothing.

The simplest way to connect the VCR to the TV is using the VCR's RF output (channel 4 in your case) from the connector that says "out to TV" or "antenna out". Just remember that outputs connect to inputs. Connect the cable box output (the one marked "out to TV") to the VCR's antenna input. Then connect the VCR's antenna output back to the TV. You will need to pick up another connecting cable with F-connectors if you don't have one. Then you just put the TV on channel 4 to watch tapes. Just leave the VCR turned off for normal TV viewing.

This connection scheme also allows you to record a program from the cable box. The only thing you have to remember is that the VCR must always be set to record on the cable box output channel (channel 4, you've said). The cable box selects a channel from the cable system, but it's always sending channel 4 to the TV. (If you're confused, you're not alone. This is the part most people have trouble getting a handle on.) One thing you can't do is record and watch different channels at one time, though.

If the TV has an AV input available, it will have the three color-coded RCA jacks on the back for the audio and video from the VCR. Connect the VCR to those inputs and switch the set to the AV input to watch tapes. (If the TV isn't a stereo model, it will have only one audio input jack - white - and you'll need to get a Y-adapter at Radio Shack to join the right and left audio into one plug for the TV.) You'll get a better-quality picture and sound connecting the VCR this way.

I am trying to connect the vcr to the tv with a cable box


There are two ways to connect your equipment.

1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.

2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.

Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.
