Re: connecting coaxial cable to dvd-v9700

I was thinking of using the RF modulator box, but in this case, it might not work, since signal should be coming from the cable box. What I dont know if there is a converter for signal from a coaxial cable to an RCA. However, the only way to connect is via RCA.

Connectding audio/video cables when you have a cable box and sound bar with dvd player

How To Connect a DVD Recorder to a Television:
1.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.
2.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.
3.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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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.

When viewing vhs tapes, old or new, static appears in lines and the picture pops in and out. is this a simple head cleaning situation?

Are you using RCA wires (yellow, red & white that plug in ) or coaxial cable that screws on.

If your using RCA connections then it could just be a loose or bad wire for the video
If your using a coaxial wire check and see that it is screwed on tight and that the center wire is thick and not flimsy ( you should not be able to bend it easily with your finger) The thicker that part of the cable the clearer your picture will be.

Also if this VCR has not been used in a while a simple head cleaning is recommended.

You can check to see if its a connection issue by using the Tuner on the VCR if that feature is available and you have Cable TV service

How to connect to cable box and TV using only coax cables

If I understand you correctly you do not have the RCA inputs on the TV and need to hook up this DVD with a coax cable.

What you will need to get is a RF modulator with both coax and RCA inputs. This will allow you to connect the Cable box up to the modulator with the coax line as normal and then the DVD with the RCA cable to the modulator and then the modulator will connect to the TV with a coax giving you access to both. Here is an example of the type of Modulator you will need.


Good Luck....

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv

Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    Connect magnavox dvd to ge tv HELP!

    You need to go get an RF modulator. They can be purchased at Radio Shack or a number of other electronic shoppes for a reasonable price.

    The RF modulator connects to the coax cable connector and it has inputs for the RCA connectors.

    Cheers ... Best wishes

    Connecting the dvd player and the vcr to the tv

    On the DVD player you hook the red/white and yellow cords from the DVD to one of the inputs on the back of the TV colored the same. Provided you have another RCA jack input on the tv you can connect this the same way. If not and you have a cable connection or satellite just run the coax into the input on the VCR and run a coax off the output on the VCR and run the other end into the TV. I hope this is of assistance to you.

    These units have flaky TV tuners. Try connecting the coax cable (the one with the cable television signal or antena) to the back of your TV first and from there take the output to the input of the DVR. By doing this, you will beusing your TVs TV tuner vs the DVR's flaky one.

    Installing DVD player/RF Modulator with Star Choice

    The RF modulator probably had a red, white, yellow trio of RCA jacks (A/V jacks), a coax jack marked "antenna" and another coax jack marked "TV"

    Putting the DVD output to the A/V jacks allowed it to play out to the TV, which couldn't otherwise accept the DVD player.

    The satellite box probably has coax and a/v jacks as output. Use the coax as output to the antenna input of the RF modulator, and the A/V jacks of the DVD player to the A/V jacks of the RF modulator. Hopefully the modulator allows the A/V jacks to have priority over the coax input, so that when the DVD plays it "wins"

    Sounds like a cable problem. I get this a lot with my coaxial cable, it takes a little turning or playing with to start working. Use an optical cable if you have the option, they are more secure, or if you don't mind going analog use the red white rca cable. Either that or replace the coaxial, if you're using one. If your amp/TV, whatever you're connected to, has a vacant audio input jack to switch to, try that as well. Good luck
