The ProScan will accept input on input 90/91/92 using the connectors on the backside. You can use S-video[the little round black connector] or the composite video [yellow connector] for the video in and use the red / white pair for audio in. 90 selects S-video and audio 1 in 91 selects composite and audio 1 in 92 selects composite in 2 and audio 2 in Connect these cords to the S-video or composite yellow output, and the Red-right White- left audio outputs on the DVD. If you don't want to do this, get a RF modulator ~$15, and connect the yellow/red/white from the DVD output to the inputs on the modulator, and then connect the RF [cable] output of the modulator to the antenna input on the ProScan, and tune channel 3 or 4. tom

This is possibly a problem with the low voltage power supply, or it could be a problem with the tuner. To test this out. What I need for you to do is to disconnect the cable from you cable TV set top box to the RF connector of your TV. Then I want you to connect either your composite or component video cables from the set top box to the TV and using the remote switch the input from the RF (tuner) to the composite input and note if this removes those lines. The select the component video input from the menu and note if this gets rid of those lines.
If the lines disappear for the composite and component video input test. Then the problem is in the tuner, if the lines remain then the problem is in the power supply or there is a video problem.
In either case after the test I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician troubleshoot the TV and repair the problem. At least you will have input to tell the technician on whether the problem is in the tuner or the power supply/video section.
Anyways here are the detailed instructions for connecting a DVD recorder to a TV
The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to
determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV
source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This
is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD
Recorder and the TV.
If you have an older TV that only accepts
RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial
cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on
the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to
the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality)
option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
If you want to
use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source
(Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using
Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red
and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA
outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite
cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA
outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video
output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input
on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on
the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the
S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder
and the input on the TV.
To use Component Video cables and RCA
audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white
RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the
DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio
cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD
Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything
to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording
Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be
passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV
screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either
channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to
change channels and record.
If you made connections using
either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record
TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to
be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs
and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the
proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
If you have a
Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a
Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD
Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.
You will need a Composite video to RF convertor, this plugs into the antenna socket on the TV and then converts the signal from Composite Video into RF signal that can be plugged into the corresponding socket from ya target device. Try Ebay? look for an composite to RF convertor.
To save cost on this model, as with many others they are sharing the
S-Video input circuits with the composite input circuits at the entry point. There is a kill switch incorporated with the S-Video jack in the set.
Even if you put an external switch box to the set, the composite video will not work unless the S-Video plug is pulled.
Your best solution is to get a TV set with a true multiple video input.
The other alternative is to have a sat receiver with an external input for throughput feeding.
Another alternative, but not as good quality as S-Video, is to use your sat receiver in the composite mode to the set, and have an external switch box to select one or the other.
