Hooking my DVD player up to my HD converter

I had to buy a converter for my TV and I was able to hook up the converter but i can't hook up my DVD player. My TV just has 2 cords coming from the back, the power cord and the cable cord. My DVD player has those 3 colored plug in things, i used to be able to watch the dvd player through the VCR, but now i can't do that cause i can't hook the VCR up to the converter. How can i hook up my DVD player and my HD converter at the same time? Is there some sort of thing i can buy to make them all work?

    I think i tried that but i wasn't getting a signal. And I would rather have my DVD player hooked up to the converter than my VCR. And when i tried to do all three nothing happened. Is there a way to hook the converter up to the VCR, then hook the DVD player up to the VCR like before?

    Hi, Before the converter, the cable that goes into the converter from the antenna was plugged into the VCR input right? Then from antenna out on the VCR to TV ant in. Why didn't you run from the converter out to the VCR ant in like before?

Onkyo tx-sr604 help


You said you tried hooking the HDMI up directly from the TV to each component, and that worked. How is it usually hooked up - through some kind of switch? I'm not completely understanding your setup here.

Hi, Can you hook up a dvd player to this model


This model does not have an AV input, just an antenna connector on the back. So you can't hook a DVD player directly to the set. You can, however, use an RF converter. The converter takes the audio and video outputs of the DVD player and converts them to an output on TV channel 3 or 4 which the set can tune in. It's not as sharp a picture or sound as hooking up directly, but it's the only option on your TV. You can find RF converters at large retailers (Best Buy, Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc.) and many online stores. They run around $20.

Would hooking up a dvd player,a vcr and a converter box cause the tv to smoke?


The short answer is simply no. If your TV made smoke, it probably has or will quit working, but it was not caused by hooking up a DVD player, a VCR and a converter box.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

Hooking up a convertor , when i have a vcr, dvd player


You can hook it up through the antennae system. Keep your dvr connected to the tv the way you had it. Hook up your TV rabbit ears antennae to the converter box in the connection on the left side of the box. Then hook up the antennae lead from the converter box to your TV on the right side connector. The only thing I'm wondering is, do you get stereo sound this way and does anyone know how to get it without hooking up the separate audio and video plugs? There aren't enough connections on the tv to hook up both sets.

Can you describe how the DVD and VCR were connected prior to the converter box when they were working? I need to know that in order to guide you properly.
