Question about Sony DVD/VCR Progressive Player
An old VHS VCR that I connect by composite video through my new AV receiver began showing splotchy images, with colors undulating across the screen. The image from the separate DVD device is great. Thinking that the VCR had worn out, I replaced both the VCR and the DVD with a new combined unit from Sony. I connect the new device through the composite video connectors. Once again, the DVD signal is great, but the VCR signal displays the same problem, even though now both signals are running across the same cables. (Sound is normal for both DVD and VCR.) I tested several tapes and got teh same result. I am now wondering if the issue is my cables (which are tucked tightly together into a cramped cabinet area). My hypothesis: The DVD image is great because it is a digital signal, but theVCR signal is messed up because I am getting interference into my cheap cables, messing up the VCR's analog signal. Does this hypothesis hold any water? If this is the case, can I solve the problem by buying better composite video cables? Is there something else I should be considering? Sure will appreciate your thoughts.
If your TV has no input selector but has a video input, the TV probably "hides" the video input between the lowest channel on the tuner and the highest channel. That means if your tuner goes from channel 2 to channel 119, the video input will be between 119 and 2. The best way to see if this is the case is to slect channel 2 and then use the up/down channel selector to go down and see if you find the video input. Let me know if this works!

I once had a similar problem, although with a different TV. It was insufficient to just power down the TV -- I had to unplug the TV so that it would re-initialize. It solved my issue.

If you have red, white, and yellow on both DVD and TV it should work. The DVD is obviousy an output so, check your connection on TV. You may find that if you scan through the TV's menu, you will have sound in one arae and picture in another. If you have a DVD in or AUX input on the TV try, and make sure you use the inputs for the respective setting, to hook up there and see what happens. You want input on TV.
