Have an old TV and a new converter box, my DVD player no longer works, the cable for the DVD player does not go into the converter box, and the cable from the TV does not fit the DVD, it is a CH-DVD-300. They do not make the cable or the cable I need for my DVD which was manufactured in 2004. Were can I get the cable that will convert it so I can use it on my TV, it is a panisonic TV. Can I use this on my computer some way because I do not have a DVD player on my computer, it is old too. I got it in 2006 for a dollar I do not know how old iot really is.

RF cable coax out to TV from the RF Modulator .....RCA jacks "red-yellow-white from ps2 to RF modulator "its not called a converter box"//lol Put the TV on channel 3 you should see the ps2 screen. Same way you would hook up a DVD player to a CRT TV..heres a video TVs DVD Players How to Connect TV DVD Player VCR With Modulator
You will need a converter to record onto a VCR. I can't remember the when the FCC require VCR to have digital, but I know yours old enough it has an analog tuner. Take your antenna connection to the in on the converter box, then you can take the out from the converter box to the in on the vcr and finally take the out to tv to the tv. To record you have to have the vcr on 3 or 4 and use the converter box to do the channel changing.
Another way would be take the in to the converter and use RCA cables to the line in on the vcr, and line out to the to the tv. This will give you stereo sound.
you can hook the cable box into the vcr and then out of the vcr into the spliter which will turn your tv red/white/yellow signel input into two inputs( you can get this at most radio shacks for about $7.00 dollors) this leaves you with one more input for the dvd player

Lorrie47, Need more info to help you. YRU trying to connect any A//V cables to the HDConverterbox to your DVD player? Can you plug the DVD player into the widescreen HDTVset or do you have old NTSC TV set like I do? I haven't even been to Circuit City, Sam's Club, or BestBuy to see what kinds of connectors are on those HD Tuner/Converter Boxes. Is the converter box u have equipted w/yellow(video), red(right), White(left) analog signal in's and out's? If the new HDTVconverter box has BASEBAND in's and out's then the installation/owners manual should have directions for their proper use. In any case you need to be more specific on what you are trying to accomplish. Tell me, does TV set stay on channel 3 , and never ever changed to chan22 or 51 or 8. Its always set to ch3?
Is it possible that maybe TV set has baseband (yellow,red,white) in's and out's on rear of cabinet? Now here are some rules to follow. Outputs must go to inputs. and colors must match. I assume that the HDTV tuner/converter box has a infrared remote control to do channel change and vol/up/dn and possiblly other things like switching of sources. does the manual say anything about AUX A/V inputs that can be used? Hpoe this has been of some use to U. I'm Louie12fix can be emailed @ this:

I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.
Here is my setup.
1) Separate DVD player
2) Separate VCR
3) Digital to Analog Converter box
4) Analog TV
5) Rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna
The antenna goes into the converter box.
The RF-output of the converter goes into the RF-Input of the VCR
The DVD output goes into the front input jacks of the VCR
The VCR RF-output goes into the TV RF-Input
The VCR Line output goes into the front of the TV
To watch DVDs, we turn on the DVD player, turn on the VCR, and set the VCR channel to L2, and tune the TV to channel 3. The converter is off.
To auto record on the VCR, the converter must be tuned to the station being recorded. The converted must be turned on, the TV can be off.
To watch VCR tapes, turn the TV and VCR on. The TV is set to channel 3. Just press play on the VCR.
To Watch TV. Turn the TV and converter on. The TV is set to channel 3. Change the stations using the converter.
