Set up problems

I'm not understanding how to hook this machine up.
The RF coaxial cable that goes to audio in video out that will connect the tv to this machine they don't connect to the back of the video machine. seems to need some type of connector.
Will this record or burn a DVD if I don't connect that part up and just connect the RCA vidio and audio cables up? Thank you

    This is a magnavox Digital disc recorder with vidio cassette recorder. Model # BZV420MW8. I am trying to copy old family VCR tapes to a CD. Does this machine need to be connected to the TV throught the coaxial cables in order to do this dubbing. When I purchased this it had only RCA vidio cable in, and RCA audio cable out, that came with it. so therefore, if this has to be connected to the TV for it to dub I will need some sort of adapter to connect the coaxial cable that is out from TV to the recorder. The recorder is made to where it take a different plug in there. thank you

Is this a dvd/vcr recorder combo? or is it just a dvd player? if it is only a dvd player, there wouldn't be a rf input. you won't be able to record or burn recordings.just hook up the audio/video cables to your tv to watch dvd's. if it is a recorder combo without a rf input or output, you may need a rf modulater they sell at radio shack for about $25.
good luck.

    no. the recorder does not need to be hooked up to the tv from the coax cable to dub videos. it is internal [ vhs to dvd, dvd to vhs ] you do however need to connect the recorder to the tv so you can see what you are dubbing. the back of your tv hopefully will have audio/video inputs so you can hook up the red, white, & yellow cable that came with the recorder.you maybe seeing a s-video slot on the back of the recorder. [ it's round with little holes inside ] if your tv doesn't have any other inputs beside coax in, you will then need the rf modulator i mentioned from radio shack.

Trying to connect a DVD player to a TV that is only equipped with a cable jack what do I do


You need an A/V to RF adapter to convert the audio and video outputs of the DVD player to RF so that you can watch the DVD player on an available VHF channel on the TV. See this device offered by Amazon:
RF Modulator TV Switch Audio Video RCA Ant Input to Type Coax Output...
You may also need a short 75 ohm length of coaxial cable with "F" type connectors on both ends and A/V cables with RCA plugs to complete the setup.

I am trying to hook the dvd player up to my old tv and am only getting sound, I am using the red, white and yellow cord.


I hope this will clarify things, you have 3 connections on each end.
DVD
  • Yellow Cable goes on Video Out (Yellow)
  • White Cable goes on Left Audio Out (White)
  • Red Cable goes on Right Audio Out (Red)

TV
  • Yellow Cable goes on Video IN (Yellow)
  • White Cable goes on Left Audio IN (White)
  • Red Cable goes on Right Audio IN (Red)

the coaxial audio connection does NOT need to be connected.
I hope this helps,

Connection to my old TV


your tv do not have an audio/video input...what you need is a device called RF modulator, it converts the audio/video signal from your dvd player into RF signal similar to the signal from the cable operator.it has an audio/video input and a coaxial cable output..

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


    It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

    1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
    If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
    That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

    2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
    If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
    To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

    3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
    If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
    Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
    Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
    (I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

    Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


    Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

    The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

    The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

    One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

    If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

    Not able to scan stations


    I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork???
    directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means:
    A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or Ch.4.to view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!!
    If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you.
    Don't waste your time on directv.
    If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS.
    Good luck!

    Connections


    Hi If I'm understanding what you have written, the new DVD should hook up exactly the same way your old one did. You connect the red and white cable from the "Audio out" connectors on your new DVD to the "Audio In" connectors on the RF modulator, then connect the Svideo out on the DVD to the Svideo connector on the RF modulator. Then put your TV on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the switch on the modulator is set to, and all should work fine. I would advise you hook your old one back up, then if it works, simply unplug the cables from you old DVD and plug them into the proper jacks on the new one. This eliminates bad cables. If you then get sound, but no picture, the DVD may be set to progressive scan (check manual for procedure take it out of that mode),If you get nothing, then I suspect there is a problem with the new DVD player. The TV/VIDEO switch they mention, would be a switch on the TV or TV remote if you had a newer TV with RCA inputs.....You don't, so disregard that, it does not apply to your TV. You would not need the RF modulator if your TV had that switch. Good Luck!...These things can be a pain, I hope this helps!
