    Purchased a new DVD by Memorex, we have a satelite hooked up to the TV and tried to hook the DVD player via the RCA (red-yellow-white) plugs to the corresponding plugs on DVD and TV. Nothing. When we went to the TV set-up menu, nothing seems to fit to add a DVD. Purchased a new RCA remote to hook TV, DVD, Satelite. Got them all working independently (turn off-on) but can not get TV to accept DVD to play. It has got to be something simple but can not see what. Rand

If your tv has no scart or phono sockets you can use you will need to purchase a modulator this simply plugs in to the aerial socket of your tv & you can plug a scart in to it.

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.

Trying to hook up an emerson dvd player to tv and its not working? older tv it has no cable hook up or control box for channel set up, shouldnt the dvd player still be able to work though?

IM GUESSING THIS MIGHT BE AN RCA TELEVISION? if you dont have an rca in hook up on the tv give up and buy a new tv or you can find an older item what it is is a switch that has an rca input and a coax output it was used to hook up the older video game systems it is still sold in most stores and that will work if you do have rca inputs and lost the remote you need to get a universal remote to switch the input on certain older rca tv's you could go to channel 00 and it would set it to the input with the switch you shoudl be able to use it by putting the tv on channel 3

DVD Player is not tracking the picture

DVD players are dirt cheap now. Just buy a new one, and if your TV has HDMI, get one that will hook up that way.
