The part that connects the cable broke off. I was given a rate of $80-$140.00 to repair. The last repair person said to use a vcr as the tuner and the cable would work. (R/Y/W) are located in the front. The cable does work for 10 seconds, and then vcr cuts off.

Re: Cable connection part broke off in back
Are you talking about the part that connects the cable from the wall to the tv? I do not really understand which part on tv or vcr. It is true you can use the vcr as the tuner. You still have to connect the cable from the wall to the input cable jack on back of vcr. Then you hookup the R/W/Y rca plug- in cable from the back vcr output jacks (which are also color coded) to the tv's jacks. If you only have two jacks on the tv they will probably red and black. It doesn't really matter. Go from your video output on the vcr to the video input of tv, then use one of the audio outputs on vcr and go to the audio input on tv. It should work like that.

there are usually two or three connections used by modern players, HDMI (http://www.pctechnologiesusa.com/catalog/images/COUHDMIFF.jpg) component(http://supply2build.com/uploads/categories/Component-Video.jpg) and composite (the yellow video in last link) you connect the device to your tv with a compatible cable between the two and change the tv to the proper input. The tv will usually have labels on the back to tell you which input is being used. If you have an audio amplifier then you must refer to your manual to figure out the proper pass though.
can you post me the model of your dvd theater, I can look up the instructions for you. also the model of your philips tv would be helpful so I can find out what connections both devices have, for best results.
Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).
Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.
Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.
This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.
When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.
*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***
For Manual, appending the link of official Sony Website- http://www.sony-asia.com/support/manual/product/dvp-ns57p/modelfirst Follow instruction & download it.. its very simple. For Connectivity with any standard CTV, get for AV (Composite) Cable with RED, WHITE & YELLOW ports at both ends. Connect one side ends of cable to DVD Player back side where LINE/ VIDEO OUT is written for video & RED & WHITE to R & L ports respectively. Similarly in TV other ends are required to connect with AV IN. NOTE- Make sure corresponding ports are required to connect with same colored jacks.
I m sure this will definitely help out.. if no, plz let me know.
There are a fews ways of accomplishing this.
It sounds like you may reversed your cable connections. Lets try these steps.
On the back of your cable box and your Go video VCR/DVD there are two coxial connections an (OUT) and an (IN):
Step 1. Connect the coxial cable from Comcast to the (IN) connection on the back of the cable box.
Step 2. Connect one end of a spare coxial cable to the (OUT) connection on the back of the cable box.
Step 3. Connect the other end to the (IN) connection on the back of your GO Video box..
Step 4. Connect one end of another spare coxial cable to the (OUT) connection on the back of your Go Video Box.
Step 5. Connect the other end of the Coxial cable to the back of your TV.
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!
