Re: Switching to Video

Perhaps purchasing a universal remote, then program it, and press the input button or w.e.

HOW DO YOU HOOK AN XBOX 360 TO Emerson EWF2004 20

This TV has composite and S-video inputs (limiting you to SD outputs from the XBOX). Since the XBOX 360 only has an HDMI output, you will need the XBOX to composite AV cable. (There is also an XBOX to S-video cable.) This adapter is sold separately from the XBOX. has the composite video cable for $8 plus shipping here: . It will be more expensive at any retail electronics store.

The manual for the Emerson EWF2004 is available from Funai, which built the TV for the Emerson line, . The direct link to the manual is . Note: you need the original remote or a universal remote that has a Source or Input button (with the correct code) to change inputs. There is no Input button on the TV.

I hope this helps.

Our tv will not recognize the cable cord attached to it. We hooked another tv to it. The cord is not bad. We attempted to search for channels and it says there is no cable attached. Is there a button that...

check in the menu under picture or video settings and see if there is options for the inputs. some tv's allow you to disable inputs for faster switching. if you only have a dvd player but your tv allows for 8 input devices, you're always having to press the button many times to go from tv mode, to dvd, and back. disabling inputs allows you to switch between only what you use.
press menu and navigate to the video settings. if you see "inputs" or "labels", select it and you can probably activate and deactivate inputs. my guess is the one you are trying to connect to isn't "on".
searching internet i really only found places that charge for the it's $10
hope this helps

I cannot get my tv to play video games! What channel does it have to be on in order to play video games, I don't have the remote?

What style of connectors are you using from your video game to the TV?

If its the Yellow Red and White that is Composite video.

You have to change the input on the TV to VIDEO or Composite Video, depending on what its called on your model of TV. There may be an input button on the TV, otherwise you have to select it through the menu.

It is not on a channel unless you are using a really old game console with an "F" style connector, which is the one that screws on like cable vision.

Hope this helps!

We are unable to get video (picture) on our TV, when we hook up to our new DVD/VCR combo. The combo doesn't have an S-video port and our TV does. We get perfect sound though.

Your TV should also have a regular composite video input jack (yellow) in addition to the s-video input. Use that input instead of the s-video. The video won't be quite as clear as with s-video, but you have to work with what the combo gives you.

Why did you disconnect the chat session?

Anyways here are the detailed instructions for connecting a DVD recorder to a TV

  1. The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD Recorder and the TV.
  2. If you have an older TV that only accepts RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality) option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
  3. If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
  4. To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
  5. To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
  6. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
  7. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
  8. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
  9. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
  10. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
  11. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

Component Input

To save cost on this model, as with many others they are sharing the S-Video input circuits with the composite input circuits at the entry point. There is a kill switch incorporated with the S-Video jack in the set. Even if you put an external switch box to the set, the composite video will not work unless the S-Video plug is pulled. Your best solution is to get a TV set with a true multiple video input. The other alternative is to have a sat receiver with an external input for throughput feeding. Another alternative, but not as good quality as S-Video, is to use your sat receiver in the composite mode to the set, and have an external switch box to select one or the other.
