Use channel up or down buttons, the inputs are usually in between the highest and lowest channels you have programmed, or if you have a remote try entering channel 90 or 91 another possible is enter 00.

Could you tell me the steps to hook up my vcr & my dvd players to my tv. And what cables and or devices I need to accomplish this task?


It will depend on the devices. Most VCRs will have composite and S-video outputs. For this you will need either a composite audio/video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end: yellow (video) and red and white (audio)) or an S-video cable and a separate audio cable. The DVD player will probably have component video or HDMI outputs, depending on its age. The component video requires a 3 plug RCA video cable (red, green, blue) and a 2 plug RCA audio cable (red and white). Some DVD players have composite outputs as well. However, this limits you to an SD video output and isn't recommended, unless your TV doesn't have any HD inputs.

If your TV has one each of the appropriate input ports or 2 composite video ports, you just need those cables, assuming you have no other devices that have filled the inputs. Always connect the devices with the TV and the A/V components off. Match the color of the plug to the port. If you mix up the colors on component video cable, you may get a black&white picture. Some newer TVs use an adapter dongle to convert composite or component video to single port on the input board. Again match the colors at the dongle and then plug in the adapter. If your TV has shared composite and component signals, use the HDMI port output on the DVD player, if possible, or get a Audio/Video switch, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Panlong-Switcher-Composite-Selector-Consoles/dp/B00KXVBB3Q/ref=sr_1_24?s=audio-video-accessories&ie=UTF8&qid=1440632814&sr=1-24 .

Please add a comment with the make and model of your specific TV, VCR and DVD player. I hope this helps.

Can you turn coax into rca cables since the maxent I have doesnt have a coax input


You can but the connection type is not the problem. If you have Coax cable or antenna type signal you need to put that into a tuner capable of providing the RCA (baseband or composite) video out with RCA audio as well. However if one is going that route with a HD display then the SVHS tyoe connector or even HDMI or some component level cables should be used to get the full benefit of the HD signal.
If your HDTV has no Coax input then it is not a TV but a display
device more like what is used in computers.

How to set up vhs taping


Most VCRs need to be connected in a daisy chain or a splitter from your input source. (You may need a tuner with some VCRs these days; either a digital to analog converter for a VCR with an NTSC tuner or a different tuner source.)

If you have analog cable or a cable box with coax out and a VCR with an NTSC tuner, use the daisy chain method. Connect the incoming cable or the coax out from the cable box to the VCR's coax input. Then connect the VCR coax out to the TVs coax input.

For a VCR without a tuner, you'll probably find a RCA composite video line in option on the VCR. Connect your cable box or converter box composite output to the VCR composite in. For an OTA source, you'll need a splitter to send the signal to both the TV and the converter box.

Most TVs do not have a video output option.

I hope this helps.

How do i connect it to the tv


The Vtech consoles connect to a composite video input on a TV. (This is the one with a yellow, red and white RCA plug on each end of the cable. The yellow carries the video; the other two connectors carry the audio.) The cable is not included in the package (at least with the V.Smile V.Motion unit). However, you should make sure the unit works before connecting it to the TV. (Make sure the power light glows when you press the On/Off button.)

For an older TV that only has an RF connector (coax), you need a RF modulator that converts the composite video to RF. These are sold at many shops with electronics. Most new TVs will have at least one composite and one component video input.

Manuals for most Vtech products are here: http://www.vtechkids.com/support_manuals.cfm .

I hope this helps.

(I have a lot of extra composite video cables around since they came with VCRs and DVD players; if you don't have one, any store will have them in section with cables for electronics. You do not need the most expensive one.)

I cant hook up the red,white, and yellow wires to my magnavox tv


If you mean that the TV doesn't have a set of composite video/audio jacks, then you need a converter for the inputs on the TV. (Most likely you need a video converter (RF modulator) that converts the game console composite video to RF (coax) and set the TV to channel 3 or 4 usually. RF modulators are available from stores like Radio Shack for $30.)

If you have a TV with a composite video input and can't get the game console to view, then there is a different problem. First try new cables. Switch your input as needed for both the TV and the game system. This will depend on the TV and if you have the original remote/unlocked front panel buttons on the TV or a substitute remote that maintains all of the features of the original remote. On some TVs you can cycle through to the A/V inputs by increasing (or decreasing) the channels until you are between channel 2 and the highest available channel. (This doesn't always work if the TV has been programmed to skip channels that previously had no signal.) Otherwise look for a Source or Input button on the remote or TV (or an OSD menu (sub menu) that lets you change the source).

I hope this helps.

I have a dvd player drc212 that i have no


Hi Tana,

If your TV is supplied with a video input, you will need a set of Composite Baseband video cables commonly known as RCA cables (Yellow, Red, White).

See the last paragraph if your TV is not supplied with a video input.

You will connect the Yellow (Video) from the DVD's video output, to the Yellow (Video) input on the TV set; example is VIDEO 1 or AV1.
You will connect the Red (Right Audio) from the DVD's Red Audio output, to the Red (Right Audio) input on the TV set using the same input number as example above.
You will connect the White (Left Audio) from the DVD's White Audio output, to the White (Left Audio) input on the TV set using the same input number as example above.

Turn on DVD, and TV set. Select the proper input on the TV set using the input button (video, source, AV select, etc.)

If your TV set is not supplied with a video input only a coax cable input, you will need an RF Modulator which can be purchased at any Best Buy, Radio Shack, Wal-mart, etc. You will also need a small coax jumper (3 to 6 foot should do it), and a set of RCA cables (Yellow, Red, White) as described above. The RF Modulator comes with instructions on how to connect it. It has a coax input, RCA input and a coax output that will connect to your TV set.

I hope this helps. Cheers.

Onkyo TX SR 606 -- Connection Issues with Cable/ Dig Coax Audio


1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]

2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".

This is easy in a nutshell. from the cablebox into the VCR RF connection (ant in) then from the VCR RF into the TV RF in. The from the DVD composite video out and audio out into the VCR composite video in and audio in. This make the VCR the hub of your setup the VCR should be set to channel 3 and you can switch between the VCR and the DVD by using the VCR remote. Now for the cords: 1) Cable to VCR RF = Coaxial 2) Composite Video and audio out = RCA patch cable 3)Composite Video and audio in = RCA patch cable That is it. If your TV can support multiple inputs then use it as the hub. Cable Box to VCR RF (Coax cable) VCR to TV RF(coaxial cable) or VCR to TV Composite video, or TV Component Video (RCA Cable) DVD Player to Composite video, or TV Component Vido (RCA Cable), or Svideo (Svideo cable)
