To select its inputs, you should have its remote control. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this link too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ If you see these sites by "MOSAIC" or "Magazine" view, will make surf easier.
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops or online by Ebay or Alibaba.com.

SOURCE: RCA TV - Trying to hookup new dvd/vcr player to old tv with only antenna input

The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.

Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.

SOURCE: Can't access AV Channel on Sony KV-C27TD

If the TV has no RCA inputs, then there is no "AV channel" option for it on any remote, just channel selection.

The purpose of a RCA to SCART converter (aka RF modulator) is to convert one of your channels to an A/V input. They operate (standard) on either channel 3 or 4 as selected by a switch on the converter.

If your converter is unpowered, it's entirely possible that the signal coming out is not good enough to overpower your antenna signal. In this case, you may need a powered unit (such as this one http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=5806345&productCategoryId=abcat0107025&type=product&tab=7&id=1067388827858#productdetail) which can actively "shut off" the antenna input when signal is received from the auxiliary device.

If this particular model does not have your typical RCA jacks in the front or back, Yes you will have to purchase an RF converter box. This is a common problem for the older conventional TV. Visit your local electronic store. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

I SUGGEST YOU USE AV CABLES( RCA ) AN CONNECT TO THE AV INPUT OF THE TV

The player does play the dvd's and everything but the picture wont show up in my television. I already connected the RCA connectors into the television and the player but still no picture. Please Help.


Assuming you used the standard YELLOW-WHITE-RED RCA cable, between the unit and the TV, the colours of each of the plugs should match both the outputs on the rear of the unit and the respective inputs at the rear of the TV. The TV must also be on an AV input 'channel' to receive the connected unit. (for example, AV1 or VIDEO 1)

Try changing the RCA cables - just in case the ones you currently have are defective in some way.

Being a combo unit, there should be a DVD-VCR common output on the rear - using RCA cable, the YELLOW is video, the WHITE is left channel, the RED is right - these MUST match the input on the TV, and the TV AV input must be selected in order to view the pictures and audio from the unit. To enjoy both VCR and DVD, using the RCA connection, the common output on the rear of the combo unit is recommended.

Better quality video is possible using S-Video cable (available from electronics stores such as Radio Shack etc. but this does not provide audio; you would still require RCA RED-WHITE cable for that, and your TV may not have S-Video input). Your TV may have a TV/AV button on the front - select the correct AV 'channel' with that if necessary.

It makes sense to check everything twice before assuming anything is broken.

I AM TRYING TO CONNECT A DX-UPDVD2 PLAYER TO MY TV. I HAVE DVR FROM CABLE COMPANY THAT IS CONNECTED TO MY TV AND NOT ENOUGH PLACES TO CONNECT DVD TO TV HELP


Hello,
Depending on what type of connection you are using from the cable companies DVR to your TV and what type of connections you have on your TV you can try the following..
1. As your DVD player supports HDMI, component and composite video out, check to see which spare AV inputs you have on your TV and connect the corresponding free input on your TV to the matching connector on your DVD player. You will also need to hook up audio from the player to this AV input on your TV using the options available on your TV (either RCA phono or optical in).
2. If you have no other AV inputs on your TV then buying an HDMI switcher or a component switcher or a simple an RCA phono y cable for composite video will allow you to connect both your DVR and DVD to the same TV input.
Hope this helps.

Your TV must be equipped with AV inputs (RCA jacks - yellow, white, red)
in order to connect this unit. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you will need a RF Modulator to connect the DVD recorder to your TV's
antenna/cable input. RF Modulators are available at
major electronics retailers such as Radio Shack or Wal-Mart and allow the 3 RCA outs from the recorder to connect to the RF modulator RCA inputs and then you can connect a coaxial cable from the modulator to the TV RF input and select channel 3 or 4 on the TV. The DVD recorder will not pass thru signals to the TV using coaxial cable as far as DVD are concerned.

Auxillary channel for dvd


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.
