Hi Linda,
I am happy to help.
You will need a converter.
Here is a link for one made by Belkin. http://www.google.com/products/catalog?rlz=1C1GGLS_enUS291US303&sourceid=chrome&q=rca+to+coax+converter&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=15572311094063678571#ps-sellers

You will also be able to find one at local electronics stores, eg:Radio Shack, Walmart, Target.

How to hook up my atari


It hooks up to the coaxial jack on the back of the tv ( antenna jack )
you will also have to get a Manual TV/Game Switch Box with Coaxial Output or a 300 to 75 OHM matching transformer or a coaxial (f-type) to female rca adapter. You can also just splice a coax cable to the Atari. There are also a converter box that will convert a coaxial input to RCA output ( Yellow,red,white) cabels

How do I connect a playstation to a GE19gt319 that don't have rca plug ins?


If the TV only has a coax input, you'll need an RF modulator that converts composite audio and video to RF. (Something like this: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095 ) . Then plug in the RCA cables (three plugs: yellow, red and white) from the playstation to the modulator and the coaxial cable between the modulator and the TV. (Note: the composite video is an SD signal.)

I hope this helps.

I need help , hooking up my samsung HT-Z410 HOME THEATER, TO MY LG HDTV, SO THAT WHEN I'M WATCHING REGULAR TV THE SOUND OF THE TV CAN COME OUT TRUE THE HOME THEATER SPEAKERS, CAN IT BE DONE? CAN A COMCAST...


first of all here is a link to the manual....http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200802/20080220095448484_HT-Z410-XAA.pdf and yes it can be conected thru your comcast but you wil need to buy probably cheapest at wallmart an RF Modulator (Less than 20 dollars) and from your cable box (vidieo out, or to tv) install the cable to the rf mod unit (ant in) and that converts it from coaxial cable to rca (meaning a cord with yellow ,red,white push on connectors) plug the red and white into aux input on surround system (see #3 on manual view on backside of surround unit)and and you got it.It your tv does not have a yellow vidieo connection (which is where the the yellow plug into tv)in the back then add a coaxial splitter after the comcast box so that the 1 coax line goes to tv and the other coax goes to the rf mod then thru RCA cables to the surround sound.you may need to buy xtra cables but they are cheap. hope i helped........you may try asking family or friends for the above equipment i described.the newer tv's dont need it and many people have this stuff layen around...good look

My cable company gave me cable tv with a tivo. the box must connect to the TV via a 3 cord (red,white and yellow) wire the tv only has a coaxial plug.


You need this device to fix your problem, it is an adapter that takes the red white and yellow connection, and outputs it via coaxial plug, so you can just tune to channel 3 or 4 on your TV and it will work fine! Here is a link to the item you need:

I'm trying to hook my DVD player to my Emerson Flat screen tv. I have the 3 yellow, red and white cord hooked from one to the other. What do I need to do to get it working? thanks


the tv should already have a place where the yellow red and white cables fit on the back usually if not, you would have to go to your local radio shack or source or a store like that and pick up a rca to coaxial converter theyre like 20 bucks depending on where you go then you can just plug it in accordingly and then youre golden

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...)

Can I use a Wii on a Philips CCB190 TV w/Built-in VCR?


Yes, it should work. As long as the tv has the RCA plugs (red yellow white) If not, you could go and get your self a RCA Modulator, which converts a Coaxial plug to the RCA.

Hd tv to vcr


What model and manufacturer DVD/VCR combo are you using. if it has a HDMI port, you should buy a HDMI cable to your combo player than to your HDTV (most don't have this High Definition port.) 6f3606c.jpg
 otherwise, it probably contains a composite port, connect the red to the red (Left) white to white (mono) and yellow to yellow (Video) than connect the wires to the matching port on your HDTV) then switch the input to AV or Composite. 9701d83.jpgb5e3eb0.jpg


If this fails, you need a coaxial cable.85dec5e.jpgconnect a coaxial cable to your player then to the coaxial port on your tv. change the input to "either Coaxial, Cable 3 or any input that sets it to coaxial input.
