How to connect an dvd to old tv

Hi,
Is it possible to connect an dvd to an old tv?
The tv only has an Ant. input (coax)

I also have a vrc. I tried to set that up. Coax cable from ANT. out to ANT In on the tv.
Tried to tune the channels to find anything, but without success.
Maybe it just wont work on my tv?

The tv works with turn-buttons, maybe I do something wrong for searching the channels.
It can also setup only 12 channels and its like impossible to see which channels it's on.

I hope somebody can help, it's for a school project.

grtz

They make a small box called an RF modulator. It takes the audio/video signals and turns them into a signal the coax can read. You can pick one up at electronic stores. There usually about 15-25 $.

How do I get dvd's to play on a 1990's model RCA tv without a tv remote?


You need an RF modulator and the proper cable(s) so that the DVD player can connect to the old TV coax input. See this video for the procedure.

Old TV


I can assume the input for your tv has only a coax input to it. Meaning a threaded connector on the back. If so, first connect the Wii to the input of the dvd player, second, from the output of the dvd player, this is where your solution is needed. run a coax cable from the tv to the DVD player and at the dvd player you will need an adapter from your local Radio Shack or electronics store. It should be a female coax to RCA adapter (male Red White and Yellow).Red and white for audio and yellow for video. Post a pic of the back of the tv if this doesnt solve it for you. Good luck, fingers crossed.

How do I hook up a vrc/DVD player. There are no outlets on the set.


I assume you mean that there are no composite or component inputs on the TV. If it has a coax (antenna) input, you will need an RF modulator. These convert video inputs and output the signal via a coaxial cable.

This type of converter can be found in some stores that sell electronics equipment and online.

I hope this helps .

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, the easiest connection method would be to use a short RF patchcord to connect the RF out of the DVD/VCR to the ANT/CABLE/RF IN of the TV. Set the TV to Channel 3. To continue able to receive ant/cable channels, the cable input should go to the ANT/CABLE/RF IN of the VCR/DVD.

VCR/DVD


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would appear that the only INPUT possible is through the RF connector. Should this be the case, a workaround would be to connect the RF OUT of a VCR to this RF/ANT/Cable IN of the TV, set the TV to Channel 3. An RG59 patch cable would do the job. Should you want to connect a DVD, connect the Video/Audio OUTPUT of the DVD to the Video/Audio INPUT of the VCR. Incidentally, the regular cable/ant should be connected to the RF IN of the VCR.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

No jacks in the back


Hi,

This is a very basic TV with only a single ANT/CABLE/RF INput. If you intend to use a DVD player whose outputs are the yellow, red & white RCA, then you would need either:
1. an RF modulator similar to this one or
2. use an old VCR to accept the yellow, red & white RCA cables as INputs. The VCR would then have to be connected to the ANT/CABLE/RF INput using an RF patch cord. The TV wold then have to be tuned to either Channel 3 or 4.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

HOOK UP


Hi there!

If using an RF Converter you will have to tune whatever you connect to it onto UHF Bandwidth until it locks. You would tune it like you would tune any other station. So as an example tune a tv station onto CH1 and the DVD onto CH2 etc. Regards and good luck. JUS004

Hooking up a dvd/vcr player


The easiest way to connect the unit is via coax. You can come out of your satellite receiver via the "Out to TV" on the back of the receiver to the "In from Ant" on your DVD/VCR combo. You can then connect another coax from the "Out to TV" on the DVD/VCR combo to the "Ant/Cable" input on the back of you TV. Make sure the satellite receiver and the vcr are both modulated to the same channel, normally channel 3.

Female coax connector in tv bad?


If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
