You will need some cables first. It's really not that difficult once you know what each cable does.

Since you're only connecting from the DVD player to a receiver, this should be simple.

There are 4 solutions depending on what cables you have.

Composite - Yellow, Red, and White ended connectors.
S-Video - Black 4-pin connectors.
Component - Green, Blue, Red and sometimes extra Red, White for audio.
HDMI - heavy cable with a wide/flat connector.

Composite connection - Connect the yellow end to the yellow Video Out of the DVD player and to the DVD Video In on the receiver. Connect the Red audio connector to the Red Audio out of the DVD player, the White connector to the White Audio out of the DVD player, and then connect those to the Red and White Ins for DVD Audio on the Receiver.

S-Video Connection - This is the same as the Composite video connection, but connect the black 4-pin cable into the S-Video out of the DVD player and into the In for DVD on the back of the receiver instead of using the yellow video cable. The S-Video cable is a video only cable and uses the same audio cables (the red and white ended cables) for audio.

Component Connection - On the back of the DVD player, connect the 3 video cables that are Red to Red, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green. These will be labeled Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. Connect these video cables to the inputs of the receiver the same way Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. The audio connection is the same as composite and there should be a place on the DVD player that will tell you what audio is for Component. This is also the same on the back of the receiver.

HDMI Connection - This one is the easiest to connect as your audio and video are in the same cable. Plug in your HDMI cable in the back of the DVD player (there should only be one) and then to the HDMI connection for DVD on the back of the receiver.

Now...once you have your connections made, turn on your DVD player, set your receiver to DVD, and enjoy.

If your receiver does not have video inputs, you will need to run the video lines directly to your TV while the audio lines go to your receiver. This will mean you will need to set the receiver to DVD as well as change the channel of the TV to the input you have the DVD player plugged into.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: DVD player only plays DVD in black and white - what's wrong?

I'm not sure what you mean by digibox. Under what conditions are you able to see things in color? Is a digibox a seperate device you can get to work with the same connection as your player? If one device displays color on the same connection and another doesn't then that seems to rule out the television being the problem. Can you clarify a little more?

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.

You may have a defective HDMI cable. If you have a friend with a working cable you could test yours on their system.

How do you hook recorder up to tv and dvr cable box

Simple. Connect the composite output from the VCR to the composite input on the back of the Presidian. Then connect the coaxial output from the back of the DVR to the coaxial input on the back of the Presidian. Then connect the coaxial output from Presidian to the coaxial input on the back of the TV. Turn everything on and enjoy! :-)

Coaxial cord won't fit on VCR/DVD

Are you sure that the port that is unthreaded is actually coaxial. I've never seen an unthreaded coaxial port, just unthreaded push on connectors.

What color do you see on the center ring on the connection of the vcr?

Connecting TV to combo DVD and VCR

When you say "can't get the TV to play through the VCR", do you mean that you can't get the cable-stations to play through the VCR to the TV? I'll assume that's what you're trying to accomplish.

The most common way to connect a VCR to a TV is through a coaxial cable, from the port on the rear of the VCR labeled "Out to TV." There should be another coaxial port labeled "Cable/Ant In." This is where I picture your cable programming is currently connected.

Instead, it sounds like you connected the VCR to a modulator (probably thru RCA composite cables, which have yellow / red / white plugs). Then the modulator connects to the TV thru a coaxial cable. This will successfully play the VCR to whatever specific channel (perhaps 2, 3 or4), but the modulator doesn't know of any other signals to send to your TV.

2 possible solutions:

1) If the modulator has a coaxial port labeled "Cable/Ant In" or something indicating "In" at a threaded coaxial port, connect your cable-programming to this instead of the to the VCR.

Depending on what type of modulator it is, when you want to switch from watching the VCR to watching cable-programming, you might have to push a button on the modulator to make the swtich, or you might not. Your modulator might put the VCR on channel 3, and allow the higher cable channels to filter though to their respective stations. Most cable providers will leave channels 2, 3 and 4 blank for this purpose. Try it and see.

2) Axe the modulator. Take it out of the system entirely. Connect your cable programming to the VCR "Cable/Ant In" and use another coaxial cable to go from the VCR's "Out to TV" port to the TV. When you want to switch from watching the VCR to watching cable, press a button on your VCR or the VCR's remote. Usually this button is labled, "TV/VCR."

If this does not help, write back and explain in more detail how your system is currently connected.

Connecting VCR to TV

Oh man dont shoot your stuff instead use your remote and go to your menu and select your input. You tv is looking at your coaxial input but you can select which input you want. 1, 2 front back whatever you need. channell 3 or 4 has nothing to do with connecting up your dvd if you connect and choose the front connection in your menu.

How do I hook up a dvd player recorder to my tv, so I can record? thank you DEE

Hi dbird30,
You will notice that your DVD player has two types of cables, one that is three cables in one with yellow, red and white colors; and other that is bigger and cylindrical, we call this a coaxial cable. To record from the TV you must unplugg the TV's cable and plugg it into your DVD player, plugg it where it says 'cable' or 'input'. Now you must connect the coaxial cable it came with your DVD player and plugg it into the DVD player where it says 'to TV' or 'output' and connect the other side of the coaxial cable to the TV. At the end you should see that the cable that was plugged into your TV is now plugged into your player, and the player is now connected through another coaxial cable to the TV.

How to connect cables from tv set to dvd recorder

Salutations pcheida08,

Depending on how your DVD Recorder is configured there may be a couple ways to connect this to your TV. The three major connections would be component connections (Red/White/Yellow) component (Blue/Green/Red) or coaxial (Basic cable line with the threaded screws).

First look at your TV, most TV's built in the last 10 years will have the component (R/W/Y) connections, older units may only have the threaded coaxial connection. If you have bought you TV recently you may see a group of five plugs Blue/Green/Red along with the Red/White.

Now check your DVD player, Again you would have the same options, if possible it is unusually best to use the component (R/W/Y) or composite (B/G/R) as the coaxial may cause problems with receiving broadcast signals and has the poorest quality of the three. As this is a DVD recorder you will also have to watch for "In"'s and "Out"'s you want to make sure any connection going to the Television is from an "Out". "In"'s are used for the signal coming in from a cable box, satellite box, or basic antenna.

Depending on how you have the unit now connected you will have to adjust your TV. If you have it connected to the coaxial connection you will need to select channels 3 or 4 depending on your area and which channels are used for broadcast. If you are using either of the other two connections you should have a Tv/Video or Aux selection in your video menu or remote.

I hope this helps.

Hd tv to vcr

What model and manufacturer DVD/VCR combo are you using. if it has a HDMI port, you should buy a HDMI cable to your combo player than to your HDTV (most don't have this High Definition port.) 6f3606c.jpg
 otherwise, it probably contains a composite port, connect the red to the red (Left) white to white (mono) and yellow to yellow (Video) than connect the wires to the matching port on your HDTV) then switch the input to AV or Composite. 9701d83.jpgb5e3eb0.jpg

If this fails, you need a coaxial cable.85dec5e.jpgconnect a coaxial cable to your player then to the coaxial port on your tv. change the input to "either Coaxial, Cable 3 or any input that sets it to coaxial input.
