NO CATV working on Curtis RT700

How do I get cable to run through the Curtis RT700? I've tried going through an RF Modulater because the cable provided has one input to TV and a red & yellow connector for CATV source. I'm assuming a RF Modulater would be necessary, but can't seem to get it to work. I then tried the auto search function for the channels, but it still seems to be picking up the signal from the antenna, not the cable. In doing this, only a few local channels are picked up. Ideas?

    I tried running the auto search on the cable mode, but still only picked up a couple of channels, and I believe from the antenna.

Yes if the unit is capable of picking up cable, there is a channel setup menu in the main menu. You half to switch it over to the cable mode. it should be in the owners manual. Good Luck

Have a curtis tv , trying to run autoscan, it runs, but it doesn't locate any channels. I have a comcast converter box also. Not sure why autoscan isn't working. Or do I have to set up my comcast...


For the auto scan to detect there must be channels present on the CABLE that is connected to the RF input- TUNER INPUT- of the TV.
So check with your cable operator for the channels and you can connect. however if you are using a digital box then the channels are memorised on the box as only the output of the box is connect to the video/audiop inputs of the TV. if so select line in/video 1/2.

Since this Curtis RT700 TV is analog, is there an adapter available to make it digital usable?


Yes,the analoge tv must hook through a box that called a Digital Converter box to get a Free AIR DTV broadcasting tvs channels signals.These Digital Converter boxes are no longer on sale by those regular big boxes stores like Walmart or Target.Tries webites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to a Digital Converter box for any analoge tvs to uses.

I have an RCA VCR model VR651HF that still works great. I can record shows without a problem as long as I'm not trying to watch a dvd. I recently bought a Sony dvd player model DVP SR200. I have my cable...


The sequence should go from the wall to the VCR then the VCR to the RF modulator then from the RF modulator to the TV and this should allow you to record a TV program and watch a DVD at the same time.

Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

Making the TV VHF plus UHF cable ready


If your tv tuner on vhf only goes to channel 13 you will not recieve uhf channels if you are hooked to cable tv. You can do a search for mid band to uhf converters (converts uhf to vhf).We used to use them in the early 80's. Even if you can find one it will only go to channel 22.
