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?

Why is picture scrambled on my memorex dvd mvd2016


The MVD is a progressive scan DVD player if your TV is 1080i or shows interlaced images only and doesnt have the option for progressive scan this would be an issue. I would suggest trying this DVD player on another television first. Also what is the model of your television?

Another issue is if you have and HD TV and are hooking up the A/V jacks to the HD component inputs this would also provide a jumbled picture. It would be a good idea to check and make sure that the A/V cabled are inserted into the correct input.

Hook up


Hi:
This type of hook up is only for television viewing, to view the DVD you might consider purchasing some componet cables, they are color coded so hooking up is a snap, on the back of the DVD player you will see three RCA type connections Red/Green/Blue. componet cables are also these colors, connect one end of the cables to it coorsponding color on the back of your DVD and the other in the same color connectors labeled componet 1 input on the back of your television. You will also need a red and white RCA connector also for the audio as this is sound, a total of 5 connections will complete the hook up. Or you can go the simple route and use RCA type cables that come as yellow/red/white but for the best picture use componet cables this will allow you to watch your movies in HD.

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Hooking DVD Player to TV


go to Wal Mart and buy a cable, its the cable with a red end an yellow end and a white end. Your TV does NOT support stereo sound, so you only need the white cable for sound, the yellow is for video.

I am having problems hooking it up to an HD Receiver from Direct TV


playback and record are 2 different things. playback, you connect the DVD player audio-video OUT to the audio-video IN of the TV. recording, you connect the DVD player from the audio-video IN to the audio-video OUT of the source (i.e. cable box, set-top box, etc) hope this helps!
