Hi. Unfortunately, your tv is NOT digital ready, so if you want to watch anything, you will need a digital convertre box to get any channels, otherwise it's only good as a screen to hook up dvd's and video games to it. Sorry about that, but this new fangled electronic age we live in has made probably 250,000,000 tv's useless without some sort of converter device.
I hope this helps you out.
If you do go to get a converter box, I would just go with one of the inexpensive ones from Wal-Mart.
Rca and Magnavox have boxes for around 30-40 dollars.
If your tv has video in socket (yellow color)and audio in socket(white color),you will connect the dvd player audio video output. it will give give clarity picture. your tv have not av socketyou can connect your dvd player audio video output to converter audio video input.And then connect to converter RFout to tv Rf input(antenna socket)and tune the tv you wlii get picture.
The simplest is to use the RF antenna cable supplied with the converter. Connect it from the box (the round threaded connector) to the TV's antenna/cable input connector and put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the converter box is set to). If your set has screw terminals for the antenna connection, you'll need an adapter to switch from the round cable connection to the screws. This may also have been supplied, but you'll probably need to pick one up at Radio Shack or another retailer.
The other way, if your TV has the inputs, is to use the audio/video output jacks on the converter. Again, the cable is usually supplied with the box. This direct connection gives better picture and sound quality than the RF method. The jacks are color coded: red and white for the audio right and left channels, yellow for video. Just connect them to the matching jacks on the TV and select the video input to watch the box. (If your TV is mono and has only a single white audio input jack, you'll need a Y-adapter to join the two audio signals from the box into one. This is also available at Radio Shack. If you don't do this, you'll only get one channel of the sound when watching a stereo channel.)
Please take a moment to rate this solution if you found it satisfactory. Thanks for asking!
You can hook it up through the antennae system. Keep your dvr connected to the tv the way you had it. Hook up your TV rabbit ears antennae to the converter box in the connection on the left side of the box. Then hook up the antennae lead from the converter box to your TV on the right side connector. The only thing I'm wondering is, do you get stereo sound this way and does anyone know how to get it without hooking up the separate audio and video plugs? There aren't enough connections on the tv to hook up both sets.
A brand and model would be helpful. However if you have some knowledge on TV's you could try replacing the Jungle IC first. This usually controls the AV inputs on a standard CRT. Probable cause, Static on the Video line. Good Luck. Jus004
It seems you have already try everything We might suggest< I dont know if you have tried using the video and audio outputs in the dvd/vcr combi unit conecting them to the audio and video imputs of your tv and the selecting maybe one of the AUX channels to watch it,If you have a tuner problem in your tv this will be a way to bypass it and control the channels from you combi unit.We would like to know the outcome,please let us know.
