Re: connection a ps2 thru the vcr to tv
i know wat youre talkin bout.I had a tc to which i couldnt connect my dvd player.
There are 2 possible solutions...
1.You can get an analog converter.At least i think thats wat its called.it connects the ps2 wires thru the converter to the big fat pin of your old tv.It will work.
2.Sorry bro...you gotta buy a new TV.

RF cable coax out to TV from the RF Modulator .....RCA jacks "red-yellow-white from ps2 to RF modulator "its not called a converter box"//lol Put the TV on channel 3 you should see the ps2 screen. Same way you would hook up a DVD player to a CRT TV..heres a video TVs DVD Players How to Connect TV DVD Player VCR With Modulator
If you are using 3 RCA cables to connect your VCR to your TV, make sure you have the video cable (usually yellow) well connected at both ends. Video Out from VCR to Video In on your TV (also usually yellow).
Also, depending on the brand of VCR, make sure you don't have an option for external speakers connected. This would eliminate the video too.
Hope this helps.
If you can get a picture on your TV when you watch a video tape you are half way there. On the back of the VCR there are two coax connections, you may need a flashlight but one will be labeled IN and the other OUT. The one that is labeled Out will be connected to the TV. The other one (IN) is where the Cable from the wall connects into. After you have the connections made turn your TV to either Channel 3 or 4. You will now use your VCR remote to change channels.
These are the basic instructions without knowing what model VCR you have. If the TV will not stay on channel 3 or 4 then you will either need to get it repaired or get a new TV.
Yes you can first connect the converter box to the antenna first. Next hook the tv out on converter box to vcr in on vcr. Next hook the vcr out to the tv in and watch vcr and converter box on channel 3 sometimes channel 4.on the actual tv and of course change channels with converter box remote. For dvd player hook it straight to tv with red,white,and yellow cables that come with your dvd player. Then to watch dvd player if it's hooked up that way you have to put your tv on a input like video 1 or input 1. This can be done by using the tv remote and looking for a button that says tv/video or input or source button. This is some common names for that button on tv remotes.
The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.
If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.
I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.
Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.
If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.
sounds like your vcr out is chan 3 or 4 try switching the tiny switch to like 4 and then put your tv on chan 4... make sure your afc swith on the tv is on also if the set is not digital fine tune in 4 with the knob.
USE a VCR between the PS2 and the Sylvania TV. Hook the PS2 A/V cable RCA connectors( Red, Yellow, White) to one of the the Video input RCA connectors( Yellow, Red, White) on the VCR. Hook the VCR Cable output to your Sylvania Cable input. Set the Sylvania Tv to channel 3 or 4. Set the VCR channel to Line 1 or Line 2. This should work. I hope it helps you.
Based on your post/description, a common installation/connection would be:
1. Ant/Cable in to the RF INput of the VCR (this is assuming that your cable TV is cable/F output and not the audio/video RCA output);
2. A short RG59 cable with F connectors at both ends should connect RF OUT of VCR to ANT/CABLE IN of TV.
3. With the VCR off, the cable would connect automatically to the TV and channel selection is thru your TV.
4. With the VCR on, The TV must be set to either 3 or 4, channel selection may be done on the VCR, TV programs can be recorded, video tapes can be played.
Another would be to use the Audio/Video OUTput of the VCR to the Audio/Video INput of the TV (assuming it's got one). The TV must be set to Video to watch cable, VCR. Channel selection would be thru the VCR.
Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
