1 Answer


Just got a new cable service through comcast. Have older tv that only has an RF connection in the back. Have set it up with the wall cable RF going to the cable box the out to the TV. Now am trying to set up the autoscan of the channels. On the back of the cable box there is no place to select channels but able to get a signal through channel 3. So now trying to scan the channels and the dvd/vcr is not picking up channels except for channel 3. What have step have I missed.

You can try going from the wall to the dvd/vcr first then to the cable box then to the TV. It may find the channels but they might not be in the order you usually wouls see them i.e chan 4 may be chan 34 etc. this will only work on an analog connection, if you have digital cable box it will not work. other than that, you have to control everythng from the cable box and the dvd remains on chan 3 at all times.

I have an analog tv (coax cable) and a new dvd (av plugs) player. How do I inexpensively connect them? i saw the solution posted about the rf modulator. I have a digital to analog tv convertor. Is this...

NO. An RF modulator and your digital-to-analog (DAC) TV converter are 2 different devices. The DAC will convert over-the-air (OTA) digital television signals from your antenna to analog NTSC format so your older analog TV can receive OTA broadcasts. The RF modulator converts base-band video (composite cable/RCA connector, or S-Video cable connector) to channel 3 or 4, so you can watch video/audio on your set. To use both the RF mod. and the DAC converter to the same TV, use an A/B switch for F-connector coax, or follow the directions for the RF modulator to make the correct connections.

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's

Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

I have a Motorola Cable Box, model DCT2222/1661. I'm trying to connect my Sny TV and a Panasonic DMR-EH75V. I don't understand the labeling on the back of the cable box.

The following connections should be made:

1) Connect a cable from your wall receptacle to the RF IN on the back of your Panasonic unit..
2) Connect a cable from the RF OUT on your Motorola Cable Box to the RF IN on the back of your TV.
3) On the back of your DMR-EH75V there is a set of connections labelled L & R AUDIO OUT as well as VIDEO OUT. Run a cable (this was supplied with your Panasonic unit) from those conections to the connections labelled AUDIO IN R & L and VIDEO IN.
4) On the back of the Panasonic unit is a connection labelled RF OUT. Connect that to the RF IN on your Motorola unit.
5) On the back of the Motorola unit are connections labelled AUDIO OUT R & L and VIDEO. Connect a cable from there to the connection on your Panasonic labelled IN3 R AUDIO L amd VIDEO.
6) Attach all power cables. You can then follow your Panasonic manual to chose the correct settings depending on what you want to do.

All of the cables that you need should have been supplied with your units. They should be labelled AUDIO L & R and VIDEO for both IN and OUT. In case you do not have your manuals handy the following links will take you to copies you can download. Your Panasonic manual can be found here:

The manual for your DCT2222 is not on the web but the manual for the DCT2000 will work as the connections are the same. Use this URL:

My husband bought me your DVD Recorder Model No. DMR-EH75V for Christmas in 2006. It worked with my analog TV and a COMCAST cable box. In April 2007, I bought an Olevia HD TV and changed to a Verizon...


Due to certain limitations of the Panasonic DMR-EH75V, it can only accommodate composite Video INput and give composite Video OUTput as well as the standard Audio L/R. Additionally, if your Verizon FIOS HD cable box has an RF OUT, that can also be connected to the RF/CABLE IN of the Panasonic.

Please refer to the simplified diagram below.


Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

your model is "tuner free" that means it does not have the RF screw in connector. Buy one that has a tuner, preferably both ATSC(USA digital) and NTSC(USA analog)

Not able to scan stations

I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork???
directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means:
A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!!
If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you.
Don't waste your time on directv.
If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS.
Good luck!

Hi If I'm understanding what you have written, the new DVD should hook up exactly the same way your old one did. You connect the red and white cable from the "Audio out" connectors on your new DVD to the "Audio In" connectors on the RF modulator, then connect the Svideo out on the DVD to the Svideo connector on the RF modulator. Then put your TV on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the switch on the modulator is set to, and all should work fine. I would advise you hook your old one back up, then if it works, simply unplug the cables from you old DVD and plug them into the proper jacks on the new one. This eliminates bad cables. If you then get sound, but no picture, the DVD may be set to progressive scan (check manual for procedure take it out of that mode),If you get nothing, then I suspect there is a problem with the new DVD player. The TV/VIDEO switch they mention, would be a switch on the TV or TV remote if you had a newer TV with RCA inputs.....You don't, so disregard that, it does not apply to your TV. You would not need the RF modulator if your TV had that switch. Good Luck!...These things can be a pain, I hope this helps!
