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.
If you have an old vcr hook the dvd player to the inputs on back of the vcr (RCA jacks) Run a coax cable from the "out" on the vcr to the back of tv. Turn the tv on channel 4 or 3 then put a tape in the vcr and push record then pause it. Or if the vcr has a tv/video button you can push or activate it and it should allow the dvd to play through to the tv.
Anyways here are the detailed instructions for connecting a DVD recorder to a TV
The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to
determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV
source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This
is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD
Recorder and the TV.
If you have an older TV that only accepts
RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial
cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on
the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to
the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality)
option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
If you want to
use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source
(Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using
Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red
and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA
outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite
cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA
outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video
output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input
on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on
the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the
S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder
and the input on the TV.
To use Component Video cables and RCA
audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white
RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the
DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio
cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD
Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything
to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording
Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be
passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV
screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either
channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to
change channels and record.
If you made connections using
either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record
TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to
be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs
and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the
proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
If you have a
Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a
Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD
Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.
I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or
s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the
front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it
asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video
Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to
the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select
Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input
you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video
(yellow composite cable).
I have an Akai 42"lct & had the same problem. I bought an universal remote URC R6 at walmart for $19. I can now control the tv, u-vrerse cable, panasonic surround system & still have the aux open. You must use the "learn" method but I can control channels, volume, record, menues for all devices as well as setup, record for dvr & more. I hope this helps.........
From the manual (search Google for CM27101S):
Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, If you?ve
connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR) using the Video/Audio input, you will
want to be able to view the signal from the component.
To do this, you will need to switch from the ? TV ? input to the ? Line1, Line2 ? Input, as follows:
1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then ? Set-Up ? menu will appear.
2 Use the WCHVbuttons to select ? Input ?.
3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change from ? TV ? to ? Line1, Line 2 ?.
4 Wait 10 seconds, or press the MENU button to return to normal TV viewing.
