You will have to have the modulator on the same channel as your tv set. Make sure there is power going to the modulator as well.

    Now that changes things. You can't use NTSC appliances on a PAL TV. North American TVs and accessories stay together and the Euro TVs and appliance stays together. You can't mix the two. There not compatible with one another. I believe in the manual for that RF modulator it pretty much states the same thing.

Can't find where to connect for dvd. no white,yellow,or red plug.


Hello, Thank you for the opportunity to help

Sounds like you got a pretty old tv there, its frustrating not to see the RED/WHT/YELLOW plugs on it. This is because this tv was made when that was not out yet. So are you out of luck? No, you ar in luck but it will cost you a little money.

You can purchase one of these RF modulators at Radio shack for like $29.95.

OR

If you have a VCR, Generally they have these plugs out the back of them you would plug the DVD into the VCR in the Video IN. You're TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 (dending on your vcr) You vcr will need to be powered ON then tuned to VIDEO INPUT. You can do this by using the remote's up/Down channels buttons or pressing input on the remote depending on the VCR.

The VCR will need to be connected to the TV's coaxe port on the back, That port looks like this:

If you do not have a VCR you would purchase a RF modulator you TV will need to be on channel 3! The modulator is connect to the port pictured above above. The DVD is then introduced to the ports on the back of the modulator witch looks like this:

Your TV must be equipped with AV inputs (RCA jacks - yellow, white, red)
in order to connect this unit. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you will need a RF Modulator to connect the DVD recorder to your TV's
antenna/cable input. RF Modulators are available at
major electronics retailers such as Radio Shack or Wal-Mart and allow the 3 RCA outs from the recorder to connect to the RF modulator RCA inputs and then you can connect a coaxial cable from the modulator to the TV RF input and select channel 3 or 4 on the TV. The DVD recorder will not pass thru signals to the TV using coaxial cable as far as DVD are concerned.

Old TV. Model M79R. How do I connect a DVD player (only a player). The TV is connected to satellite signal (Dish) wired to the 2 UHF screws. I am not sure what or where to connect from the DVD player.


Your DVD outputs composite Video & and an Audio signal, subsequently you must have AV inputs on your set they are Red & White (Audio) & Yellow (Video) RCA Jacks. If you do not have these then you are a bit stumped. You may however get a RF Modulator, this takes the Composite Video & Audio signal, and converts it into a TV Signal that can be "Received" on a TV Channels.
I have included a link so you understand what I am talking about.

I have a proscan tv model #PS27108, I do not know how to hook up the dvd player in regards to the cords and what channel to put it on? I would appreciate any help with this! Thanks in advance?


The ProScan will accept input on input 90/91/92 using the connectors on the backside. You can use S-video[the little round black connector] or the composite video [yellow connector] for the video in and use the red / white pair for audio in.
90 selects S-video and audio 1 in
91 selects composite and audio 1 in
92 selects composite in 2 and audio 2 in
Connect these cords to the S-video or composite yellow output, and the Red-right White- left audio outputs on the DVD.
If you don't want to do this, get a RF modulator ~$15, and connect the yellow/red/white from the DVD output to the inputs on the modulator, and then connect the RF [cable] output of the modulator to the antenna input on the ProScan, and tune channel 3 or 4.

How to hook up dvd player to tv


You need an RF modulator to convert the A/V output (RCA jacks) of the DVD player into a Coaxial cable you can plug into the back of your TV. I'm including a link to one at radioshack.com. This one costs $27.49. You might be able to find a cheaper one at a discount store. You can also use an old VCR if you have one to do this conversion but the connections get a little bit tricky. Plug the A/V outputs of the DVD player into the A/V inputs of the VCR. You'll have to set up the VCR so it knows to use the A/V inputs. Some VCRs have and AUX setting for this. Then connect a coaxial cable from the VCR output to the TV input. You'll have to setup the VCR to send it output to a specific TV channel, usually channel 3 or 4. Then you'll have to set your TV to that channel.

Can't watch dvd


You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever then the only way to reach your tv is through coaxial antenna port. So you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellow and white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

Your GE TV most likely doesn't have anything but a antenna input on it? If that the case to connect a DVD player you must purchase a RF modulator to convert the video and audio output of a DVD player to a channel 3 or 4 output. Here is a link for one at Radio Shack.
