If you have a CRT TV, it's unlikel;y you would hace RGB input.

Use the composite and L/R audio souckets to connect to your TV.

If your TV doesn't have separate AV sockets (RCA sockets), plug the cable into your VCR and then another from "RF out" on the VCR to the antenna socket on the TV.

Connecting rca tv model#F20352SF to a tv converter box


  • Connect ANTENNA OUT of STB to antenna terminal on rear of TV OR, for better picture, connect 3-wire cable to color coded L AUDIO, R AUDIO, and video outputs on rear of STB and connect other ends to L AUDIO, R AUDIO, and video inputs on rear of TV.
  • If STB connected to antenna terminal of TV, set CH 3/4 switch on rear to whichever channel is NOT used in your area.
  • Connect antenna to ANTENNA IN of STB
  • Connect STB to power and use STB remote to turn on
  • Turn on TV
  • If STB connected to antenna terminal of TV, use TV remote to select channel 3 (or 4).
  • Use STB remote to select SETUP and perform channel search.
  • Use STB remote to change channels.

I am unable to find the owners manual for the Teac MC-DV100 SuybWoofer


For almost any set-top box, there isn't a sub-woofer output. Without that output (it would be labeled on the STB), you can't hook up a subwoofer directly to it.

HOWEVER, the model number you give isn't just a subwoofer: it's a whole sound system with a subwoofer attached to it. If you have the whole sound system, you just hook the STB's audio output to the amplifier's "Aux Input" (it might also be called "line input").

If your model doesn't have that (can't tell from the web), you'd have to buy an "AV Receiver" that has at least a 5.1 set of outputs. These start at maybe $150 new, $50 on eBay. MAKE SURE YOU BUY A RECEIVER WITH A "powered" SUBWOOFER OUTPUT!! You connect the receiver to the STB, and the subwoofer to the receiver.

TV/VCR Recording of TV Programs Using a Digital Converter Box


Hi Rick
I think you are painting yourself into a corner. So to Speak.
Why buy a SetTop Box to convert to an old VHS Tape when you can buy a Digital Recorder for probably the same price.
The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. It was a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.
Here are the unit features
  1. Main Features:
    DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
    DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
    2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
    Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
    HDMI Digital Output
    Digital Audio Output
    CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
    Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
    Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
    EPG searching and auto download
    Recorded program edit
    Parental Control
    Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
    Built-in WiFi
    Network Playback
    USB 2.0 Interface


Now
This was my original reply until I saw the light.

So, Hopefully one of these will answer your queerie.

A digital TV picks up the new Digital Transmission and stores it in memory, then supplies the high definition to the input of your TV.
With a STB, once the digital broadcast signal is captured by the Set Top Box tuner, it is stored in memory and then it is converted to Video Format and comes out of the back connectors as a standard video & audio signal on the Red & White (Audio) & Yellow (Video) as a composite signal that can also be attached to an older VCR tape recorder.
If the STB output connectors have a Red White & Yellow RCA plugs then it is all ready to be picked up by an older TV or VCR.
Most set top boxes also have HDMI Output for high definition video & sound in the one cable, which attaches directly to the back of your TV (assuming it doesn't already have a tuner (STB) already built in).
HDMI is the state of the art cabling for modern devices. But probably not on the old VCR.
It will either use Component, Composite or SVideo cables. Match one of these cable standards up with your VCR.
Cheers.... Trevor

I am attaching a digital set top box to this TV Model C21F200 and have a video/dvd player to attach as well. I can't seem to get both working. Can I tune the video to the TV with the set top box attached?


If your TV has AV inputs available, you can connect the video player there and switch to that input to watch it. I don't think your model does, though; I think it has only an antenna input connector. This means your set-top box will connect there but you have no place to connect the video player. In fact, most new video players only have AV outputs, and don't have an RF (radio frequency - a channel 3 or 4 TV signal) output connector, and you'd have problems connecting it anyway.

All is not lost, although you'll need some extra parts to hook everything up. I'm assuming the set-top box (STB) is going to your TV on channel 3 or 4, using a cable from the box to the TV antenna connector. If your video player does indeed have an RF output, the simple thing to do is get a splitter. They look like this:

pgh_pa_guy_13.jpg

Normally, a splitter is used to break one input signal (into the single connector) into two outputs (the connectors on the other side). But you can also use one backwards to combine two sources. So you can connect the RF cable from the STB to one output jack, connect the video player RF cable to the other, and connect the "input" side of the splitter to your TV antenna jack. If your STB is set for channel 3 output, set the video player for channel 4 so they won't interfere. Then you can tune the TV to channel 3 for TV signals from your STB, and to channel 4 for videos. I know, it sounds confusing.

If your video player doesn't have RF output, but just video and audio outputs, you need an RF converter. This device takes the AV output from the player and generates a channel 3 or 4 RF signal the TV can tune in. A typical converter looks like this:

pgh_pa_guy_14.jpg
Connect the AV outputs from the player to the jacks on the converter. The output cable from the STB will go to one of the round antenna connectors on the right, and the cable from the other one goes to your TV. When you aren't playing a DVD or tape, the converter passes the signal from the STB through to the TV. When you turn on the video player, the converter switches and you'll see the picture from the player. Most converters switch automatically, but on some you might have to flip a switch. RF converters are available from retailers who sell TVs or online.

I'm sorry if this seems unnecessarily complicated, but most TV sets today have plenty of inputs for all these things, and usually you just plug in the connecting cables and go. But with older sets or sets that don't offer the inputs, you need to go through these shenanigans. But once you have the parts hooked up, it's not too bad.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

I have changed the setings some how i have disabled some thing now my set top box wont work its a aiko stb255 when i switched it on it just flashes up for a second and then its just a blank screen i cant...


As the manual says "please make sure your TV set can support Progressive format before you select YPbPr Mode or you will can not see picture on TVset" (sic).

To get back from a blank screen:
1 unplug the STB to reset the menu positions to default (because you will be making menu selections blind)
2 plug unit back in and turn it on and use the remote to press in order:
Menu (TV sound will be muted because the menu is now displayed, even though you cannot see it)
Down
Down
Enter
Down
Enter
Down
Down
Down
Right (or Left)
You should then get a picture. Leave the picture setting at CVBS (and don't touch it again lol)
For visual cues on what you are trying to do, look at page 8 of the manual.

Y/Pb/Pr outputs are green; needs


There is no calibration for the component video that I know of, check your cables you may have a bad Pr cable or the Pr/Pb ones may be mixed up.

Y (the green one) is for luminance, plug in ONLY this connector and you should see a black and white picture.

Now connect the Pr. You will now see red tones.

Now connect the Pb. And you will see blue tones.

Reverse the Pr and Pb and see what happens.

Oh and make sure you don't accidently have one plugged into a composite video or digital audio port.

Still not looking right?

Go into the input menu of the TV and change the component (or colourstream) input from RGB to Y/Pr/Pb. (most TVs do not have this feature.

Hope this helps!

I have a aiko set top box receiver, installed, we have pictiue, sound but no colour only black and white, what wrong?


Hiya Margy,
I know your query was 6 months ago,but I had a similar problem with connecting an Aiko SD set top box to our second older tv set & after 3 months only recently found the solution!
Our problem? When connected the tv picture went green! Nobody,including Tandy staff,knew what to do! (We also have an Aiko STB connected to our newer tv and it worked fine from day one.)
Anyway,it took 3 months but I finally worked it out.
Our problem was settings on the TV,NOT the STB.
Go to your TV's COLOR settings,pick a setting called 'COLOR SYSTEM' and change from 'ntsc' or 'pal'(depending on what country you're in) to AUTO.
It isn't enough to change the tv system on the STB's SETUP menu,or to change it on the TV's SYSTEM settings,you have to change it in the TV's COLOUR settings as well. Change colour system to 'auto' and see if that helps.(And of course,change all system settings on both the tv & the STB to AUTO or the right system for your country if you haven't done so) Hope this helps! Good luck!
