I cant hook up my vcr/dvd combo. the coaxle going into the tv is different than the hook up for the vcr/dvd. the coaxle has the end that screws on, for the vcr/dvd it has the type that plugs in red,yellow, white
The new Sony does not have the coax connections. It is crazy! If your cable box doesn't have the Audio/Video cable, you have to get a different box from the cable company. I find this new Sony annoying! I am trying to connect it also and when I attempt to use "Setup," I am getting a message that says "no S video detected." Somehow I get the Setup screen sometimes but when I attempt to use the up/down arrows to set stuff up, it changes my tv setting to VGA or HDMI. I am very frustrated with this! Help!

Re: Hook up vcr
Yes, you need to use an Audio/Video cable (red, white, yellow) to hook
to the TV. I've never seen a VCR that doesn't have coax
connectors for the antenna input and TV ouput, but maybe the new ones
are starting to leave that out. Normally, you run the antenna or
cable coax into the VCR's input, then run another coax from the VCR
output to the TV's input (or use an A/V cable)

Hi if your tv has rca inputs simply plug yello,red,and white rca cables into the color inputs on tv if it has a coaxle "roung with threads and a hole" simply screw the coaxle wire to this and your alset.
most stores sell both adapters needed to hook up dvd or any type of electronic equipment buy a a/b switch so u can switch from dvd to [cable or satellite] then buy coaxle adapter which has 3 wire hook up to coaxle for tv [rca $10 ] and coaxle wire. connection wire a or b from dvd to adapter and other from a or b to cable/satellite other end of a/ b goes to tv slide switch to watch dvd and slide back for reg tv
Connect your rabbit ears to the Insignia. Connect the Insignia to the antenna input on the "cvd/vcr combo". Now turn on the television to show the "cvd/vcr combo".
The Insignia simply goes between your antenna and your television. In your case you also have a vcr so if you want the VCR to be able to play and record digital stations you will need the Insignia between the vcr and the antenna.
first you do connect cable to your > combo VCR / DVD player & recorder then connect to > to your TV: cable coax output or if that cable have video/audio ouput is going to INPUT >to combo VCR / DVD player video / audio output is going to INPUT > to TV,.that's the time you can record and playback; click below for more information in hooking up:
Is your DVD player a DVD/VCR combo? If so, hook the "tv out" (sometimes called "ant out" ) to the "ant in" on the DVD/VCR, then hook the "ant out" of the DVD/VCR to the "ant in" on the tv. Then make sure the DVD/VCR and TV are on the appropriate channel (3 or 4).
If it's NOT a combo, or these instructions don't work for you, i will need pictures of the inputs/outputs of the devices.
hook the antenna to the VCR rf conecter IN.
buy some RCA jacks and a three way deal and hook the red to sound red out ,white to sound output white,
and yellow is always video hookit to yellow vido out on the vcr/dvd. The other ends go to the inputs on the TV....same color code.
or you can just hook a cable to rf connector OUT on the vcr and other end to( it with problably just same antenna in) to TV.
