You can by an AV splitter box from dick smith or even k-mart audio section that allows you to plug all your units into it, then leads go to your TV. There is a switch on the box which you flick over depending whether you want to watch a DVD or play your game unit.

The other option is to have a llok at the back of your DVD player. Some have input AV's (the red, white and yellow holes !) where you could plug your game console into. Then you just leave your dvd plugged into your tv as normal. To play your game console you turn on TV and DVD player. Have TV on "AV" channel as well as your DVD player on "AV" channel (may also be your input or component channel.

Hope this helps :)

I can assume the input for your tv has only a coax input to it. Meaning a threaded connector on the back. If so, first connect the Wii to the input of the dvd player, second, from the output of the dvd player, this is where your solution is needed. run a coax cable from the tv to the DVD player and at the dvd player you will need an adapter from your local Radio Shack or electronics store. It should be a female coax to RCA adapter (male Red White and Yellow).Red and white for audio and yellow for video. Post a pic of the back of the tv if this doesnt solve it for you. Good luck, fingers crossed.

How do I connect roku 2xs to sony trinitron tv


If your Tv does not have the HDMI port you can use the RCA cables. If your Tv does not have the RCA video/audio ports you will need an adapter from Radio Shack for hooking up a video camera to a cable Tv. This adapter will allow you to hook the Roku to the adapter with the RCA cables, then the adapter hooks to the Tv with a cable just like a cable box. This adapter is also a pass through for other devices like a cable box and or another DVD player. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Can you hook up a DVD player to this TV? It is a DTQ 13V5FC purchased in 2003.


I took a look at the specs for this set, and it has both front- and rear-panel audio and video input jacks. There's a button marked "VIDEO" on the remote that switches to the AV input so you can watch what you have connected. So yes, you can hook up a DVD player, but there are some limitations.

This isn't a stereo TV, so you'll need a Y-adapter (like this one from Radio Shack) to combine the right and left channel sound from the DVD player into a single mono input for the TV. This means you'll lose any stereo effects from the DVD. Also, even though there are two sets of AV input jacks, the TV can only use one at a time. You can't select the front or rear input separately.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a RCA XL100 TV and there is no conncetions for a DVD player. Is there something I can buy that will enable me to connect a DVD to the TV?


You will need an adapter to connect the DVD player with the TV. Click here to find the RF Signal Modulator TV Video & Audio Converter Adapter. The TV should be on channel 3 or 4.

Sound but no picture!


This is a normal, input board defective (as switch module inside betwen tv signal and the AV1,2,...) normaly is video chip defective. You need to send tv to repair shop, to check and repair.

Note: Check for tv picture signal, for quality, normally this circuit when defective, changes the quality signal (first some colours level, sync and then totaly defective is a dark picture)

Have an RCA F27636BC TV. Can u hook a DVD player


How to hookup TV

If you have a TV with only a single coax input and you want to hook up components like DVD players and VCRs, here's how to do it.



What you need to connect your DVD player or game players to a TV that only has a VHF/UHF 75-ohm F-connector ("coax antenna input").

1.) RF Modulator with Stereo Audio Inputs.



2.) 6 foot long coaxial cable with male "F" connectors. This cable goes from the modulator to the TV. The modulator also has a coaxial input to plug in your antenna or your VCR.



3.) 6 foot long Video and Audio Cables with "RCA" plugs. The cables connect the yellow, red and white outputs from your DVD or game player to the yellow, red and white inputs of the modulator.





Works with X-Box, PlayStation, Nintendo or other devices that output audio/video via the RCA plugs and you want to connect them to your coaxial only TV.
