Snowy reception on TV with LG DVB418

Have the coaxial cable from my antennae going to my new LG DVB418 and it is picking up excellent digital TV signals. Problem is my TV reception (using the analogue tuner in the TV) is now snowy, when this was never a problem before.

Any ideas on why this is now occuring and anything I could do to fix this.

    Thanks for the quick response.



    The aerial cable goes from the wall connection to the 'aerial in' on the DVD player and there is an 'aerial out' from the DVD straight to the TV. The DVD player is picking up digital channels, and the TV's analogue signal has a picture, but it has some snow on some channels and interference lines on others. The setup was similar with my VCR, and the TV signal was clear.



    Could the DVD have a poor internal connection that is causing the signal to deteriorate from the aerial in to the aerial out? Would a splitter be better, to split the signal from the wall to the DVD and the TV seperately - or is this going to have the same problem.

    hi, as for the dvd having a bad connection it is possible but i doubt it have a look on the back of the dvd player and see if there is a set of 3 rca sockets red,white and yellow are the main colours and see if they are on your tv as well if so connect with a cable this is the best set up because it by passes the tuner on the tv if you haven't got these let me know i have a few more ideas regards Jim

I'm trying to hook up my DVD player to my TV but my TV doesn't have a yellow jack only red and black


Hi,

If your TV doesn't have a Video IN jack (Yellow) then you would have to attach your dvd by antenna (Coaxial) cable. What does the DVD have on the back ? EG: Video Out is Yellow, Red is Right Audio, White is Left Audio. If your DVD has Ant in & Ant Out you can use a coaxial cable from Ant out to your tv's antenna In socket and put your antenna cable (from your wall socket) to Ant in on the dvd. Turn on the dvd and put your tv on a blank station and tune your tv till you see the dvd screen . lock it in and that becomes your DVD channel to watch your dvd's.

Hope this is some help.

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Hi just got a LG dvd/vcr Model RC897T. I have it hocked up right, but i can't get it to switch over so that it would be seen on the TV. can you help


If a cable box is not required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the ANT. IN connector on the recorder.
If a cable box is required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the IN connector of the cable box. Connect a coaxial cable from the OUT connector of the cable box to the ANT. IN connector of the recorder.
To view or record a CATV channel:
  1. Tune the TV to the Recorder output channel (CH 3 or 4).
  2. Set the Recorder channel selector to the cable output channel. (Example: CH3).
  3. Select a channel using the cable converter.
With this connection, you cannot record one program while viewing another.If you are using a cable box to tune channels, it is not necessary to do Auto Channel Set.

Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

Using vcd/dvd combo with digital converter box


"Sounds" correct to me.  Are you going by the instructions that came with the converter box?  And, "ANT In" to the box from your antenna?

Is your recorder hooked up to the new convert box for digital antenna reception?
I am currently researching the convert boxes for my dvd recorder. I found that some dvd recorders already have digital converter boxes already installed. This might be the case for you.
