Simply insert the converter between the curent cable and the TV. The converter should have come with a short RF cable that you can use between teh converter and the TV. I have incluede a before and after line diagran below.

On the Dynex? - RF Modulator AV Signal Converter, the RCA plugs on the back, are they input or output?


Input. The intent is to convert Composite Video, S-video and audio from newer devices to old TV's that only have RF (antenna) inputs.

RF Modulators and cable connections

RF MODULATOR HOOKUP
For a TV with only a RF input jack, a RF Modulator can be used to hookup DVD players, DVD recorders and other devices which output RCA composite video and audio. For example, analog cable TV can be connected using a RG-6 type coaxial cable to a VCR or older DVD recorder's analog cable ready tuner RF input. Then as shown above, the output can be connected to the TV thru the RF modulator. The modulator outputs on channel 3 or 4 for the older TV so the TV is set to channel 3 or 4. Some RF modulators are built-in to Audio/Video switch boxes. These allow multiple RCA inputs along with RF input.

RF MODULATOR CLOSE-UP
The modulator converts signals to channel 3 or 4 so older TVs can tune them on their analog tuners channel 3 or 4.

I need help , hooking up my samsung HT-Z410 HOME THEATER, TO MY LG HDTV, SO THAT WHEN I'M WATCHING REGULAR TV THE SOUND OF THE TV CAN COME OUT TRUE THE HOME THEATER SPEAKERS, CAN IT BE DONE? CAN A COMCAST...


first of all here is a link to the manual....http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200802/20080220095448484_HT-Z410-XAA.pdf and yes it can be conected thru your comcast but you wil need to buy probably cheapest at wallmart an RF Modulator (Less than 20 dollars) and from your cable box (vidieo out, or to tv) install the cable to the rf mod unit (ant in) and that converts it from coaxial cable to rca (meaning a cord with yellow ,red,white push on connectors) plug the red and white into aux input on surround system (see #3 on manual view on backside of surround unit)and and you got it.It your tv does not have a yellow vidieo connection (which is where the the yellow plug into tv)in the back then add a coaxial splitter after the comcast box so that the 1 coax line goes to tv and the other coax goes to the rf mod then thru RCA cables to the surround sound.you may need to buy xtra cables but they are cheap. hope i helped........you may try asking family or friends for the above equipment i described.the newer tv's dont need it and many people have this stuff layen around...good look

All ready used box once. Now going back to antenna. Not receiving display or menu on T.V. screen.


All TV over the air is transmitted as a digital signal now. In order to see it on an older TV (read Analog), you must have a signal that you can receive(antenna hook up) and a digital to analog converter box. That box allows you to see your digital signal on older TVs. The signal is sent from the antenna to the box via a RF connection, and decoded to channel 3 or 4 (your choice). for further information see Consumer Report at:

Converter box connection


You need to get a 75-ohm to 300-ohm transformer, also called a "balun". Radio Shack sells them and you may also be able to find them at retailers who sell TV antennas. It's a small cylinder with a threaded connector at one end for the cable from the converter, and a flat wire with two terminals for the TV connection. Connect the terminals under the "VHF" screws on the TV, put the set on channel 3 or 4 depending on your converter box setting (most are on 3 out of the box) and you're good to go. On a set of that age, you might need to tinker with the fine tuning adjustment a little for the best picture from the converter box.

I have separate dvd player and vcr, how do I hook coverter box up


It took some time, but I finally have this figured it out so everything works.

I have the same setup, but I had one additional piece to the puzzle that I had to figure out. I have an older TV and use and antenna, but had to buy an Audio/Video RF Modulator a couple of years ago to use my VCR & DVD player with the old setup.

Get yourself an Audio/Vido RF Modulator (you can pick one up for about $20-30).
Connect the TV to the RF Modulator.
You should have 2 connectors for your antenna. Connect one to the converter "To Ant" and the other to the RF Modulator.
Connect the convertor A/V cable to "IN" on your VCR.
Connect the cable from converter "To TV (RF)" to "UHF/VHF from Ant" on VCR.
Connect the VCR "OUT" cable to the RF Modulator.
Connect DVD A/V cables to A/V input on VCR.

Your TV should be set to Channel 3 (or 4, depending on your setup) and depending on your "input" connections, you should be able to view vidoes from VCR like this and DVD by changing the input (the button should be on your VCR or other remote). For ex. my input changes on my VCR from channels, to L1 & L2. My converter & VCR play on L1 and DVD's play when I change it to L2.

Now, I just have to figure out how to add the converter box to my universal remote. :)
Good luck!

CONNECTING TO TV


if your television has the two screw input, go to Wal_Mart and tell them you needan RF adapter for an older model television. If your TV has a cable TV type input, then just connect it via the cable input.
