You need to determine what output options your DVD player has. Take a look at the rear of the player. It will certainly have RCA jacks for video and audio outputs (yellow for video, red and white for right and left channel audio). It may also have RCA jacks for component video (marked Y, Pb and Pr). Finally, it may have a threaded connector marked "out to TV" or "antenna out" or something similar. This is called RF output.
Most players today don't offer RF output because nearly every TV has direct AV inputs available. If your DVD player has RF output, connect the output connector to the TVs antenna input. You need a coaxial cable with F-connectors on the ends. One may have been supplied with the player. RF output is on channel 3 or 4, set by a switch on the back of the player or by its on-screen setup. Just set the TV to that channel to watch a DVD.
If your player doesn't have RF output, you connect it to the TV using the AV jacks. You need cables with RCA plugs to to connect the video and audio from the player to the TV. Then you switch the TV to its video input to watch the DVD.
This is where you might run into problems. Many TVs need the original remote control to switch inputs. (Some older RCA sets used channels 90, 91 and 92 to switch to their video inputs so any remote would work, but these sets were made before 125-channel tuning became standard. If your set is one of those models, those are the auxiliary channels you heard about.) If you can't switch the set to video input with front panel buttons and you don't have the right remote, you're not completely out of luck.
If you can't use your set's AV inputs or it just doesn't have any, you need an RF converter. These cost around $15. They take the audio and video from the DVD player and convert it to channel 3 or 4. Then you hook that output to your TV as described above.
Audio? Video? input? output? Short questions are nice but vital details are helpful....
Lets assume your talking Audio output since those are the only digital settings you can change, but first a little bcakground.
RF would refer only to you video input via the tuner if thats what your referring to it should simply be a matter of changing the input (channel up/down or input up/down).
Your audio output can be changed from analog to digital and vise versa and can be chaged from the Menu(hit Menu when no DVD playing) settings under audio.
Yellow: Composite Video
Red: Right Audio Channel
White: Left Audio Channel (mono)
Does your TV have a video & audio OUTPUT on the back of the TV?
If so, will need another set of audio/video cables and you need to connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the TV to the video INPUT (yellow) of the DVD/VCR and connect the Red cable from the right OUTPUT of the TV to the red INPUT of the DVD/VCR. Then connect the white cable from the left OUTPUT of the TV to the white INPUT of the DVD/VCR. If your TV is not in stereo, just connect up the white cable for mono audio.
If your TV set does NOT have audio/video OUTPUTS, then you will still need another set of audio/video cables and connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the cable box to the yellow video INPUT of the DVD/VCR and connect either the red or white (or both if possible) to the red or white audio INPUTS of the DVD/VCR.
You need two sets of cables because you want to watch DVD's & tapes on your TV (Path #1) and you want to record the TV channel shows back to your DVD/VCR (Path #2).
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
if you have two separate units, the best way is to connect s-video cable from the output of the dvd player to the input of the vcr. If not, second best is to connect the video/audio out of the dvd to the video/audio in of the vcr. Othwise the units may have a rf (75 ohm cable) output and the dvd usually sends channel 3 or channel 4 as an output when playing and the vcr must be tuned to this channel. Start the dvd, pause it, hit the vcr record button, then unpause the dvd.
i have the same issue i don't know the solution to ur original problem of B&W..
I think you might have unknowingly changed the "Video Output".. don't worry...to change it back.. do the following steps
1) Switch on dvd player with no disc
2) wait for few secs and press setup on remote
3)press -> (rt arrow) once
4) press enter
5) press down arrow twice
6) press enter
7) press up arrow once(or twice)
8) press enter
