Easy. All you have to do is to make sure that the DVD player is old the older types that have RCA connectors at the back of the DVD. Latest DVD may have RCA connections but I am not sure if it can send digital signal directly to the analog TV. Try this and see what happens. if your TV is old and does not have Component Video (Red/Green/Blue) RCA sockets (input) but has standard Pal/NTSC sockets (Yellow/Red/Black) hook up the yellow, red and black plugs into a DVD (out) RCA sockets of same colour, then hook up the other end of the cable in the (in) RCA sockets at the rear of the TV.
If it works, then all is well. If it doesn't work, then you have to hook up the cable from the DVD to the (input) RCA sockets of a Set Top Box, so that the Set Top Box will convert the signals for the analog TV. Just pay attention to the inputs and outputs at the rear of them.
On your DVD - plug the RCA cable to the (OUTPUT) RCA sockets. On the Set Top Box - plug the connectors in the (IN) RCA sockets and then use another cable connected to the OUT RCA's of the Set Top Box, then connect the other connectors to the (IN) of the TV RCA sockets. Hopefully you get the picture on what I mean.
S-video only passes the VIDEO - you will need to make sure you also use the WHITE and RED connectors which are stereo L and R channels - for your audio input and for your audio output as well. Make sure you plugged your audio inputs in the right line input. Example, if you are plugging S-video in LINE 1, make sure your red and white cables are plugged in LINE 1 audio input !
Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.
The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.
The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.
One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.
If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!
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.
Locate the output jacks DVD player. Sometimes they are
standard female RCA A/V jacks, like those found on the front of
many VCRs. Others are more tricky, having a small jack that looks
like a stereo headphones plug. These camcorders require a special
cord that converts a 1/8" stereo signal into RCA A/V male
Using the proper cord, connect your PLAYER to the VCR's RCA
A/V input jacks, usually found on the front or back of your
Turn on your VCR and TV, so you can see the input from the
camcorder. You might have to select "Input 1/2", "Line 1/2", or
"VIDEO" depending on your VCR model. You should now see whatever is
on your camcorder displayed on your television.
Press "Record" on your VCR, then press "Play" on your
camcorder. That's it!
I do not think so because the first problem is that the VCR recorder uses RCA audio cables (the White and Red colored cables) but the speakers use regular speaker wire. You cant convert from RCA to regular speaker wire. Second problem is even if you find a way to convert the wires, the DVD recorder does not amplify the sound signal. In fact all DVD players and recorders including VCR combos do NOT amplify the audio signal so you will barely hear it. The receiver does two jobs. First it converts from RCA cable to speaker cable and Second it also amplifies the signal before it sends it out to a speaker. Thats why a receiver is important.
have you pluged the rca to scart in of your tv or vcr for picture check cables if you have rca to scart in or if you have rca to rca check for breaks in signal of plugs you'll need a converter for rca to scart all outputs will be on rear of unit.
hope this helps
