Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
I have a BRIGHTHOUSE DIGITAL cable box, a magnavox dvd/vcr combo and an older style tv but the tv does have co-axel plug-ins (i guess that is what they are called). I am having a heck of a time hooking it up to play dvd's or vcr tapes. A couple of things I notice, first, the dvd/vcr does not have a regular plug-in for the cable wire to come in from the cable box,...it only has the color-coded plugs-ins. The other thing is any time I have ever played a dvd player, the tv always had a separate source for the channel. This tv doesn't. it only has channels 2-99. I am soooo confused,....HELP!

SOURCE: reading rca cables
There is obviously a lot of background that is missing form your question, most specifically the kinds of equipment that you are using and the exact way that you have wired the components. However, I can tell you that a common problem when changing the "source" for DVD/VCR units is to also change the source settings inside the unit, which are usually accessed through the setup utility, which is usually in the menu of the DVD/VCR. To access the menu, you may have to have the coax cables hooked up, just until you change the settings to the RCA (component) cables.
Good luck, and let me know if this helps!
