Question about GE 19GT240 19" TV
This is a bit complicated. Ideally I would like to be able to get my new SAMSUNG DVD-VCR purchased to replace a failed FUNAI F2840M to work with my 19GT240 set without having to spend 400 on a new, digital TV, at least for now. That's the ideal objective. Failing that, I'd like just to get my 19GT240 to work so that it receives ALL cable channels.
I live in a high rise condo with free cable provided by COMCAST. It is supposed to switch over to digital without any problems. I've run into a problem, however, due to failure of my old equipment (see above) the FUNAI VCR doesn't seem to respond to the remote. The response became progressively weaker over time. I had FUNAI send me a new remote. IT doesn't work, either. So I bought a new SAMSUNG.
One big problem - the FUNAI F2840M had one cable going in and one going out to the 19GE240. Very simple, no problemo. The new SAMSUNG DVD-9800 has THREE cables to hook up to a TV. The GE only has ONE cable outlet.
RADIO SHACK told me and Circuit City reiterated that I could use an RF MODULATOR to cope with that, so I bought an RF Modulator model DE RF from Radio Shack. It doesn't seem to want to work, or I am hooking it up incorrectly with the new Samsung DVD/VCR.
Can someone tell me how to get set up, please?
Right now the cable is running from the wall into the GE TV and I only get a FEW stations. The COMCAST guy was in the other day and told me all I need to do is scan in the channels but I can't seem to figure out how to do that on the MENU and my MANUAL is long gone.
I'm not sure if the GE TV model is compatible with the SAMSUNG model. The guy at Circuit City yesterday (I was down there for the close-out sale) told me that shouldn't be an issue that my GE TV should be able to be made to work with the new SAMSUNG DVD player, and all I needed was a modulator, which I already had bought from RADIO SHACK.
So, again the objective is to get set up with the GE TV and the new SAMSUNG DVD/VCR recorder or, failing that get ALL the cable channels from the ONE cable from the wall running into the back of my good old GE TV.
Do you have the manual and required cables to connect the units.
u can get the required cable at radio shack websites.
