Connecting my DVD Player to my Digital Converter Box
I just bought the Isignia Converter Box for my 5-year-old Toshiba television. According to the instructions, I have to connect the converter to my DVD player then connect the DVD player to my television.
The DVD player is a Coby cheapie.
Connecting the converter to the player was easy, but I'm having trouble figuring out which jacks to use to connect the player to the television. The player is a progressive scan player and there are jacks for that. Do I use those to connect the player to the television?
I called Geek Squad and they told me to connect the player to television with the coaxial cable. On the back of the DVD player there is a jack labeled ''coaxial'' but the coaxial cable's plug doesn't fit. And according to the instruction book with the converter, this is not the best way to connect the box to the television anyway to get the best picture and sound.

Lol I used my standard AV cables for the component, and I used an adapter to plug the audio into my speaker ...
Make sure your menu settings are correct audio outputs may have a setting for digital or analog sound output check that these are set up to analog or stereo output .Also try hooking the sound up direct to a stereo system or amp to be sure you have output! Also you may not be able to get your sound thru the convertor box!! Because the convertor is a reciever of digital signals not a line amp. for audio !! Hope this helps11 AAAAAAAAAAAAAE!!!! Swampratt200 ! Out!!
Without knowing the actual ports on each of these devices, all I can suggest is that have you tried connecting your DVD to the Dish box (thru VCR scart connection at the back of the Dish box) and then the Dish box into your modulator (and then modulator into your tv.
I have a similar system set up but we have a Sky Digital box here, no idea if its the same as a Dish box but im assuming so.
That wil depend actually if its supported by your old TV, since on the old televisions there are video 2 and video 1, NTSC/PAL options. whats the TV brand? did you contact philips regarding the compatibility with the TV?
