Re: video input

If there is no input button on the tv itself to change the input then you will most likly need a remote. so you can get a universal remote and follow the instructions to adapt it to your set then you can use it to change the input. (you can get a universasl remote for like 10$) hope it helped

I have a universal remote that is able to control some functions on my tv. I am trying to get the tv into auxiliary mode to connect it to my dvd player. How do I get it into auxiliary mode?

Usually the tv will switch automatically to the correct reception mode as soon as it detects an input into the scart socket.

I have and have had a number of tv sets and they all do this, though I do remember many years ago needing to select the AV channel. I believe these days the AV channel is for the other audio/video input sockets.

I suggest you connect your dvd player to the tv, switch on the tv and then press "play" on the dvd.
You should be able to enjoy viewing without further effort.

If you change channel on the tv to check what is on, the dvd reception will be lost. To save the trouble of disconnecting the scart lead and reconnecting I use a manual scart distribution box so simply pressing the button provides the required interruption so dvd viewing can be resumed.

Video mode on GE 27GT610

Try hooking up the dvd player and turning it on. Then use the setup and add/erase channel feature to look thru all of the channels. On my older GE tv I found that channel 91 was the correct channel for the video input. I saw the logo for the dvd player on this channel. I just added that channel and now it works. Your channel might be different.

RCA F25645 25in TV.

I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video (yellow composite cable).

Dvd hookup

  • First make sure the audio (red &black) and video (yellow) are plugged into their respective color matching inputs on the TV monitor.
  • Second either using the TV remote contol or TV's builtin control panel set the tuner mode to video. Depends on which TV's input terminal you connect the DVD player; that's where the Video mode has to be assigned.
  • For example: if you connect them to video1, set the tuner to video1. changing the channels up or down will never set it to video mode. You must press video button to change the tuner from regular channel mode to video mode.

From the manual (search Google for CM27101S): Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, If you?ve connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR) using the Video/Audio input, you will want to be able to view the signal from the component. To do this, you will need to switch from the ? TV ? input to the ? Line1, Line2 ? Input, as follows: 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then ? Set-Up ? menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHVbuttons to select ? Input ?. 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change from ? TV ? to ? Line1, Line 2 ?. 4 Wait 10 seconds, or press the MENU button to return to normal TV viewing.
