    Ok here's the deal. I use an antenna for reception. I'm holding out till Aug of 09 or whenever it's going to switch over to all digital. If I use the RF Modulator will I be able to control the channels with the new VCR. I ask because I use my stereo for the sound, and I prefer the sound out of the VCR over the outputs from the television. Also will I be able to record Dr. Phil for my wife? For my wifes happiness I don't know that this is an option.

Hi This problem has been around for some time when connecting a DVD player to an older tv, and now has become a problem with newer VCR's. You must purchase a device called an RF Modulator which will allow you to connect to the older tv. We sell them at our shop for $30.00 but I have seen them quite often for $65.00 and up...so it pays to shop around. Good Luck

  1. 1
    Turn off all of your components. This will help prevent any accidental damage while connecting.
  2. 2
    Connect the RF/COAX Out port on the VCR to the RF/COAX/ANT In port on your TV. Use a coaxial cable.

  3. 3
    Connect your antenna to the the RF/ANT In port on the back of your VCR (optional). This will allow you to watch over-the-air broadcasts through the VCR.

How do you replace a coax antenna port that was pulled out from the back of the tv


On most sets the tuner has to be removed for this to be done-a new fitting or a new tuner can be installed.

If the set has the standard RCA audio and video jacks for input you can hook a cable box or even an old VCR to those and BYPASS the coax fitting--hook up to those inputs--select them on the set and leave set on that input and change channels with the box or VCR.

Much cheaper than replacing the fitting and gives a better picture.

Having trouble hooking up vcr


I've never seen a VCR use anything other than Composite, S-video or RF analog outputs. That's because VHS uses the NTSC or PAL analog video standards. (In the US, it is NTSC; in Europe PAL is the old standard.)

To use the Composite output, get a triple RCA cable (red, white and yellow connectors). Connect one end of the cable to Video Out (yellow), Audio Out right (red) and Audio Out (white) on the VCR. The other end of the cable goes to the corresponding Composite Video In jack and the adjacent Audio In jacks on the TV. If you are using S-video, (both units must have S-video jacks), the S-video cable replaces the Composite section of the triple cable, so you only need an audio patch cable (two RCA plugs on each end). Be sure to use the audio input corresponding to the S-video input. Note: S-video is generally better quality than composite, although HD digital is still superior.

If you wish to record from the TV, the TV must have a composite video or S-video output. This is not very common. If you wish to record programs from an RF source (cable or antenna), see the next paragraph.

In the days before digital, a typical connection scheme was to run the cable or antenna RF source to the ANT IN coax connector on the VCR, then run a short coax cable from ANT OUT to ANT IN on the back of the TV. This may not work with a digital source. Pre-HD VCR tuners would not be HD compatible, and may even filter out the digital signal in bypass mode (VCR off). You would need an HD to analog converter box at the VCR input to retain this setup. I have no information on your TV's support for NTSC video through the tuner (especially since you did not mention the model : /).

Magnavox dv220mw9 does not have a ant. in,or ant. out. How do I hook up to my direct tv satellite rcvr. My original hook up is from a DTV d10-300 RCVR to a Sylvania vcr/dvd SR2900,which has a antenna in...


have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver.After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using thishookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv asusual...Now plug rca cables(red,yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directvreceiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavoxplayer...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that'sok) Now hook up up the dvd player2.gifto the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if yourtv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available atwalmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connectionsto the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)

Connecting Hitachi VCR to my Direct TV.


Connect your Direct TV to the Ant. In connection on your VCR. When you want to watch TV, just tune the TV to channel 3 (or whatever channel the Receiver is set for). When you wish to record, set your VCR to that same channel and set your TV to the channel that your VCR outputs to. For simplicity sake, I would suggest setting both systems to channel 3 and just watching your program through the VCR. If you are still using an "off air" antenna, then connect that antenna to the ANT. IN connection on your Direct TV receiver and when you turn off the dish, it will pass the signal through just like the VCR would.

Connecting magnavox dvd/vcr player DV220MW9 to a 40 year old TV


What type of Inputs do you have on your TV. (ANT IN, S-Videio, RCA Video,RCA Audio)

If you only have a ANT In or RF Coaxial hook up you will need a RF Modulator

Trying to hook up your DV220SL8 DVD/CD Video Cassette Recorder. I have an antenna coming in coax but there are no places to plug any of the jacks on the tv.


There are two ways of solving this problem
1.It seems to me that you need an RF Modulator Box. What this does is convert the RCA cables (Yellow,White,Red cables) into coax. You buy the box then plug you antenna and RCA cables into the box. The box has a coax output that goes to your TV. You can then switch from VCR\DVD to antenna.

2. I dont know if your VCR/DVD has it but try hooking up your antenna to the VCR coax INPUT and then hook up your TV to the coax OUTPUT. Both Coax INPUT and Coax OUTPUT should be on the back of the VCR/DVD device. Your going to need an extra Coax wire for this.

Hope this helps

Hooking up a dvd/vcr player


The easiest way to connect the unit is via coax. You can come out of your satellite receiver via the "Out to TV" on the back of the receiver to the "In from Ant" on your DVD/VCR combo. You can then connect another coax from the "Out to TV" on the DVD/VCR combo to the "Ant/Cable" input on the back of you TV. Make sure the satellite receiver and the vcr are both modulated to the same channel, normally channel 3.

Hook up vcr


yes, you need to use an Audio/Video cable (red, white, yellow) to hook to the TV. I've never seen a VCR that doesn't have coax connectors for the antenna input and TV ouput, but maybe the new ones are starting to leave that out. Normally, you run the antenna or cable coax into the VCR's input, then run another coax from the VCR output to the TV's input (or use an A/V cable)
