Hooking up DVD with RF modulator through a Cable Box

I'm having trouble hooking up my DVD player. I have an RF modulator because my TV does not have the three colored inputs (white, red, yellow). There are 2 cables coming from the cable box (input cable, output cable) with one going directly to the TV. How can I hook up the DVD player, along with the cable box using an RF modulator?

SOURCE: DVD/VCR combo player won't work

I had a similar problem and corrected it with a solution found on another site. Try hitting the I/P button on the remote which controls whether "Interlaced" or "Progressive Scan" is used to display the image on the TV. Mine worked when "Interlaced" was used. but no picture was displayed when "Progressive Scan" was used. The I/P button toggles between the two settings.

SOURCE: APEX Digital VCR&DVD PLAYER ADV-3800 will not play DVD's.

What it so far done, it looks pretty fine. I'd break apart the problem if is posible to do it, i mean maybe you have some other sets around the house or some friend who have them.

  • i'd test the dvd/vcr in a different tv
  • i'd test the tv with a different dvd
i would start over again the installation after this test.

the reason is to know if you can trust in those sets and second maybe with some other try the installation works

SOURCE: how do you make the dvd player work

need more info, By what you have written about a player and a cable tv. I think you mean a cable box if this is so your tv has RCA jacks red white and yellow and you only have one set on your TV. IF this is so you will need to buy a multie selecter I know I did not spell that right but I hope you can read it if not this is what it is. It is a box that lets you connect more than one device with the same cables into one such as a tv. If you have a DVD recorder and want to hook that up to a cable box. Hook the output RCA jacks of your cable box into the input of your Recorder and the output on the recorder go to the tv. mach color to color. (Hope that helps if not let me know what type of jacks your TV has RF is what they call the cable jack RCA is the red,white and yellow S-video is the funny looking round jack.)

The tv says no signal new out of box


It's kind of hard to answer your question with not knowing how your hooking up your TV. If you are hooking up a antenna or cable to your RF in you need to make sure you have your input set to TV and autoprogram your channels. If your using a cable box hooked to your RF in then you need make sure it is on and autoprogram your channels. If you are using a cable box, satellite receiver, or DVD player hooked up to your component, composite, or HDMI.input then you need to make sure you have you input set for that. Hope that helps.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    Connect magnavox dvd to ge tv HELP!


    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.

    Cheers ... Best wishes

    Hooking up my dvd player


    Try an "RF Modulator". It can take in multiple type signals like your cable and dvd and send it to the TV via the coax. The one I have will take in Coax (cable), RCA (left, right & Video) and S-video.

    Hook up of new dvd player to comcast cable box


    I ran into the same problem, Radio Shack has a device called a RF Modulator. The model # is Model: 15-2526 | Catalog #: 15-2526, the price is $27.49. On the back there is a place for cable in and cable out to tv. There are the 3 rca jacks on the back also, 1 video (yellow) and 2 audio (red/white) That simple. Set the tv to channel 3, turn on the dvd player and it automaticlly puts the dvd on the screen. Turn it off and back to normal cable. Works great, I use one myself. hope this helps. Steve

    Trying to Install


    Do you have the red, white and yellow hookups on the back of your TV????? If you don't then you need to get an RF Modulator. You can buy one at Walmart. Older TVs don't have the red, white and yellow hookups. You hook up the RF modulator with a short cable to the cable outlet on your TV. Then you plug in your DVD player to the RF modulator. You also plug your cable for the TV into the RF modulator. It really is very simple. Directions are included with the RF modulator. You will need a short piece of cable also.
