Question about Televison & Video
I have an older tv with only coaxial, no RCA. I have a DVD player without coaxial. I've been playing DVD with a passthrough to the VCR which has both coaxial and RCA. My VCR no longer works (won't power on). The tv and dvd players work fine. What do I need to buy to make them work? I don't even care about the VCR to play or record VHS, as it was used only as a passthrough anyway. I've been looking online and realizing a cheap VCR won't have the coaxial either, just like the dvd player. Everything says to get an Rf modulator with the new vcr. Since I don't care about the actual VHS player/recorder, do I need only an Rf modulator? What exactly does that do?
If you have a VCR you could run the coax to the TV and then plug the RCA connections from the DVD player into the VCR line in. Then you just have to have the VCR on and have the line in selected on the VCR. If you have no VCR you can get an RF modulator from Radio Shack for less than 30 dollars. With that you can connect AV component cables or S Video cables from any device and connect it to a TV with only a coax in.

@ tihis link above you can see it. It takes the av SIgnal Your Sound and picture and convert it RF making it possible for your tv to tune it, its just like tunning into a station. I do sell these for R199 South African Rand excluding postage
