Martha, dvd players don`t have an "rf" connection, so you don`t watch the dvd`s on channel 3 like on a vcr you have to use the 3 cables coming out of the back of the dvd player to "video in 1" on the back of the tv.Yellow to yellow red to red and white to white, (the plugs and connections on the tv & dvd are color coded)
Then switch your tv to "video input" NOT channel 3, to watch the dvd, good luck, BMW Rider

What chanel do i set tv to to play vcr

Hello, Typically they use either 2 or 3. Your vcr might have a slide switch that will allow you to select either channel. You can usually find it by just switching channels. If it still looks like your not connecting, make sure cables, either coax or rca, are pushed in securely. You can always troubleshoot by trying other vcr or dvd player and also try on other tv.
Hope this Helps

Trying to watch vcr on channel 4, but the vcr is set to channel 3

You can watch the TV programs
with the tuner of the unit. (Usually
channel 3 or 4 of the TV is
available for the RF converter
setting.) Be sure to connect the
unit to a TV using the RF cable.
Select channel 3 on your TV.
Press [VIDEO/TV] on the remote
• If noise appears, change the
RF output channel of the unit to
CH 4 by pressing [VIDEO/TV]
for 3 seconds. The RF output
channel will alternate between
CH3 and CH4

Connecting dvd player to zenith sy2551s system and doesn't work

Yes, You need to be on AUX ,you can get to that setting by pressing channel 01 then press the channels down button instead of going to channel zero it will start to cycle through your AUX's inputs on the back of the tv.Also, another way to do this is on the original remote there will be a SOURCE button or INPUT button that can also cycle your TV through the aux inputs.REMEMBER.Make sure your DVD player is turned on and hooked up or else the AUX screen will be black.Rate me when you fix it!GOOD LUCK
