Hello.

The RF modulator sends on a certain frequernzy(Channel) usally around channel 36 on UHF. If there is a adjustmen screw on it try and turn it util the picture disapears and then search for it on the tv again just to make sure nothing else is interfearing on the channel the RF modulator is sending on now.

An alternative if there is no adjustment on your RF modulator would be to change the frequenzy on your VCR or other devices attached to your TV that might send on the same frequenzy as your RF modulator.

Regards..

Trying to connect a DVD player to a TV that is only equipped with a cable jack what do I do


You need an A/V to RF adapter to convert the audio and video outputs of the DVD player to RF so that you can watch the DVD player on an available VHF channel on the TV. See this device offered by Amazon:
RF Modulator TV Switch Audio Video RCA Ant Input to Type Coax Output...
You may also need a short 75 ohm length of coaxial cable with "F" type connectors on both ends and A/V cables with RCA plugs to complete the setup.

I have a rf modulator i dont no where any thing goes i tryed i just dont understand it i just brought a dvd and vhs to gether


alot of DVD/VHS combos have a built in RF modulator. Look for a coax (screw threads) output on the unit and it should be labeld either DVD/VHS OUT or just VHS OUT. If it does not have a combo out then you will need to use the seperate RF modulator.

Your combo unit should have a set of yellow red and white jacks that are labeled DVD & VHS OUT. Connect these yellow red and white to the yellow red and white on your RF modulator, then connect the coax (screw threads) out on the RF modulator to the coax jack on the back of your TV. There is also typically a swich for channel 3 or 4 on the RF Modulator, make sure you TV is on which ever channel you have that switch set to. If your RF modulator has a power light on it, it will usually not come on until your DVD/VHS is sending a signal through it and it is connected properly.

If you have an antenna or cable box, your RF moudulator should have an Antenna or Cable input jack on it that you can use.

I have an analog tv (coax cable) and a new dvd (av plugs) player. How do I inexpensively connect them? i saw the solution posted about the rf modulator. I have a digital to analog tv convertor. Is this...


NO. An RF modulator and your digital-to-analog (DAC) TV converter are 2 different devices. The DAC will convert over-the-air (OTA) digital television signals from your antenna to analog NTSC format so your older analog TV can receive OTA broadcasts. The RF modulator converts base-band video (composite cable/RCA connector, or S-Video cable connector) to channel 3 or 4, so you can watch video/audio on your set. To use both the RF mod. and the DAC converter to the same TV, use an A/B switch for F-connector coax, or follow the directions for the RF modulator to make the correct connections.

I am trying to hook up my Philips 19PR19 (made in 1998) tv to the dish network receiver, it has 3 prongs diff. colors attached and the cable cord is already to go in the wall...I don't see anywhere on the...


Because your TV is an older one, it might not have, what they call RCA inputs (the 3 colored cable) Red-audio right, White-audio left, Yellow-video. If I understand you.

You do have the option of using the 75-ohm coaxial cable inputs. Signal comes in from outside to the 722k, Output of the 722k to the 75ohm coax input on the back of the TV. Tune your TV to ch. 3 or 4. Make sure the switch on the back of the 722k is set to the same.

If you really want to use the RCA colored cables, then you need to buy an RF modulator, which integrates older tv's to newer products. But usually dvd players, not necessarily cable boxes, but it would work if hooked up correctly.

You plug the RCA red, white and yellow from the 722k, into the rf modulator, choose channel 3 or 4 on the modulator

Connect 75ohm coax cable from rf modulator to TV 75ohm coax cable input. Choose channel 3 or 4 on the TV.

Hope this helps.

Can not make the instalation betwen my tv and my dvd player


Most DVD players today have only RCA jacks for video and audio outputs, and don't have RF (channel 3 or 4) outputs. If your TV doesn't have AV input jacks (either too old or just not supplied on your model) you can't connect the DVD player directly. You'll need to get an RF converter to make the connection.

An RF converter costs about $15 and you'll find them where you can buy TVs. The converter takes the video and audio signals from the DVD player and creates a channel 3 or 4 output signal to your TV. If you don't have the cables already, make sure to get them too. You need a "dubbing cable" (RCA plugs on the ends, usually color-coded red, white and yellow) to connect the DVD player to the converter input jacks and an RF cable with "F connectors" on the ends for the output to the TV. Often the dubbing cable comes with a new DVD player, and the RF cable with the RF converter.

If this takes care of your connection troubles, please take a moment to give my solution a good rating. If I've missed something and can be of more help, please post a followup comment.

Cable/ant. hook-up


If you have a yellow/white jack on your DVD/VCR unit you can connect it to the TV using composite cables. If you only have the coax output on the DVD player you can buy an RF modulator that will convert the coax to composite also. But if you have two ports on thhe DVD player as most combos do the top is usually an input source such as cable and the bottom is the output that goes to the back of the tv. You could also buy a "splitter" and attach the cable and dvd coaxs to each of the out ports(they will be side by side) and on the opposite end, which is the in run a coax from that port to the tv coax port.
I hope this helps you out. If you need assistance you can visit me on the chat portion of this website.

Installing DVD player/RF Modulator with Star Choice


The RF modulator probably had a red, white, yellow trio of RCA jacks (A/V jacks), a coax jack marked "antenna" and another coax jack marked "TV"

Putting the DVD output to the A/V jacks allowed it to play out to the TV, which couldn't otherwise accept the DVD player.

The satellite box probably has coax and a/v jacks as output. Use the coax as output to the antenna input of the RF modulator, and the A/V jacks of the DVD player to the A/V jacks of the RF modulator. Hopefully the modulator allows the A/V jacks to have priority over the coax input, so that when the DVD plays it "wins"

Magnavox MWR10D6 can't record from camcorder wrong channel


OK...try this...plug your RCA cables from your camcorder into the RCA input jacks on the back of the recorder. If you have a VCR, it can be plugged into the coax input on the back of the recorder. Use the coax output and plug it into a RF modulator (about $20 at Wal Mart). Plug the RCA output cables from the recorder into the RF modulator as well (Don't ask me why, but it seems to work on mine). Connect a coax cable from the RF modulator to the TV. Make sure the TV and Recorder are both on the right channel. The RF modulator will have a channel switch to use channel 3 or 4 on the TV. Make sure the recorder is set to E1 (Rear). You can check this with the channel +/- buttons on the bottom right of the remote. Good luck.
