Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Dvd without coaxial, old tv without RCA, passthrough VCR died

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.
Look here.

Cheers

Coaxial cord won't fit on VCR/DVD


Are you sure that the port that is unthreaded is actually coaxial. I've never seen an unthreaded coaxial port, just unthreaded push on connectors.

What color do you see on the center ring on the connection of the vcr?

Need an RCA Adapter for a TOSHIBA D-VR610KU


If the RF Modulator will convert a coaxial signal to an RCA output signal, fine however, you still need a tuner to select the channel on the TV you want to record. This unit is primarily for dubbing or copying DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD. There is no tuner in the unit to get the cable signal. Try hooking up an additional VCR, that probably has a tuner in it and use the RCA out of the 2nd unit to the RCA in of the Toshiba. Hook the coax to the input coax jack of the 2nd then RCA out to RCA in of the Toshiba. Choose what channell you want to record on the 2nd unit. You may have to choose Auxillary mode on the toshiba the press instant record on the Toshiba. Again, this unit is a Player or Dubber. Not designed to record TV shows without an external tuner. I hope this helps. If you use a 2nd VCR just to get the TV Signal, you won't need the modulator.

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

Connecting VCR to TV


Oh man dont shoot your stuff instead use your remote and go to your menu and select your input. You tv is looking at your coaxial input but you can select which input you want. 1, 2 front back whatever you need. channell 3 or 4 has nothing to do with connecting up your dvd if you connect and choose the front connection in your menu.

Dear Gonedeep2,
Are you saying the DVD/VCR player does not have a coaxial socket?
Does your TV have RCA sockets to match the DVD/VCR player.
(ie. red and white for audio and yellow for video signals).

Fading dvd picture


DVDs are recorded in Macrovision* format which distorts the video when playing through a VCR. This is an anti recording device to prevent duplication. You can try finding a decoder that connects between the player and VCR to override this

The coax output is just a passthrough. You need to go to the TV through the RCA output even if you have to go through a VCR or other component.
