Question about RCA 20F420T 20" TV
I am trying to hook my security camera up to my tv.
is if possible and if so, how do i do it.
thanks for any help.
Yes it's possible.
You have several options with your TV. You can use the Video-In from the auxiliary/line in or even though a VCR. The plugs in this case use what are called RCA Jacks. They travel in three's, one yellow, one red and one white. The yellow is the Video.
Any hook up is going to be dependent upon the output from your camera. Security cameras, for the most part output a video signal much the same as a VCR. Some however use RF (Radio Frequency) which requires it to be attached to a cable or antennae jack and then tuned in (usually channel 3 or 4).
If it's a straight NTSC Video signal there should be no problem. A long cord with RCA jacks to the Video-In would do it. Then you could switch the channel to AUX or Line One (which ever your model uses) to get the camera signal.
Computer cameras have a whole different way of doing things. If you run into any snags, comment me back with the make and model of your camera. I'll get you up and running.
BTW, good things come to those who rate. ;-)
Hope this helps.
