If using 3 color RCA (r/w/y) the red and white is audio and should go into your stereo under video or AUX. The yellow is the only video cable you need, that should go to your TV aux in or video1 or video2. You can also put all 3 colors into the tv and then run another red/white OUT to the stereo AUX in and have stereo sound for whatever you are watching.

Combo VCR/DVD player has no cable connection on back> How do I hook it up, through adigital box, to an older TV with one set of white, yellow and red connections?

What outputs are available on the digital box? If you have composite out (AV), then you connect the yellow (video), red and white (audio) to the VCR composite IN on the DVD player. Then connect the composite out from the DVD player to the TV. You will need an extra RCA composite cable. If you need one, they can be found in most stores. (try an online shop that specializes in cables to avoid an outrageous price). The VCR In is to the Right of the DVD/VCR Out.

If the incoming cable is only available with a coax connection, you will need a set top box and a coax splitter. Connect the incoming coax to the input of the splitter. Then connect one coax cable to the TV antenna/cable in. Connect the other to the set top box and then connect the composite output of the set top box to the VCR composite IN.

The manual and the quick start guide are available as PDFs here: . For diagrams of the connection to a cable or other set top box see the FAQs on the right hand side of the page.

If your cable box has some other output, you will need an appropriate converter to go from component to composite video for example.

I hope this helps.

Connecting dtv box to vcr to dvd to the tv

you can hook the cable box into the vcr and then out of the vcr into the spliter which will turn your tv red/white/yellow signel input into two inputs( you can get this at most radio shacks for about $7.00 dollors) this leaves you with one more input for the dvd player

Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual

Usually a cable box has a RF (antenna connect) IN (from the external signal) OUT (cable going to the TV_RF in)
Usually one has to place TV_channel on 3 or 6 (my TV ch. 60).
EXTERNAL signal goes in CABLE box RF_in, CABLE box RF_out to the TV (RF_in).
In order to connect DVD/VCR, [IN LINE with cable & TV] just connect the RF_out from CABLE BOX into the RF_in of the DVD/VCR, RF_out of DVD/VCR to the TV RF_in.

Just hook your antenna or whatever wire you have currently connected to the TV to the input on the new recorder, and you'll be to record anything you can watch now.
