RCA F25645 25in TV.

I don't have the remote that came with the TV and am trying to hook up an RCA dvd/vhs recorder combo. I did what the instructions asked of me for the recorder but i can't get the dame TV to the right channel for the dvd/vhs recorder. I have tried everything. I am useing a universal remote and or the front of the TV and have got no where. If anyone can help trouble shot this it would be great. Thanks for your time.

    I have the same problem. I've hooked a DVD player up to the back, set up Channel 3 for it via the Menu, and all that pressing the DVD button on the remote does is change the channel to channel 3. Pressing the Who/Input button on the remote worked for awhile, but I had to reset the Channel/Video Input Signal option every time I turned on the TV. Now that doesn't even work. HELP! ANYONE??

Since I posted this question, I found the solution (yea!). Unfortunately, metallergic's response does NOT work on this TV.
Here's the solution:
On the Universal Remote is a button labeled "Who/Input". After turning on the DVD player, press this button - Voila! The DVD player is now in control of the TV input. AND you don't have to change the TV channel to 3 (or whichever channel you set it up for via Menu > Setup). What I've discovered is that pressing the DVD button on the Universal Remote simply changes which device the remote controls; pressing DVD means that the remote is now controlling the DVD player.
Which brings me to my new question - Does anyone have a list of codes for this TV and Remote? It would now be great to also control my DVD player via this Universal Remote. I have a Magnavox DVD player.

I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video (yellow composite cable).

Phillips dvdplayervideorecorder connect w/zinwell converter box


First off get the TV on the right channel. It will either be ch3 or ch4. If you are using a cable box the dvd/vcr combo will have to be on ch3 or ch4 as well. OK, Make sure the input connector on the combo is hooked to the output connector of the cable box and the output connector of the combo is hooked to the input connector of the tv. Deal with one part at a time. First hook the combo to the tv and get the tv on the right channel (ch3 or ch4) so that you can see a pre-recorded dvd or video play. Then you will know what channel the tv is supposed to be on. When you find it don't bother the tv channel any more. Stop the dvd or video and hook up the cable box and turn on the cable box and set the box to a known good channel. Now put the combo on ch3 or ch4 with the combo's channel selector buttons until you see the cable box playing on the tv (remember you already set up the tv channel). Change channels on the box but don't bother the channels on the tv or combo anymore. You can put the box on whatever channel you want. The box will be your channel selector. I certainly hope that this helps. I know it can be confusing but don't give up. Just remember that the tv and combo have to always be on ch3 or ch4 (which ever one you found before). Good luck and thanks.

Hooking up a cd player


I'm assuming you mean a DVD player, not a CD player? 1. You can get an input splitter (basically an A/B switch for the cable), and connect to that, manually switching between the two sources. 2. You can replace the VCR and the DVD player with a combination DVD/VHS unit. Although it would seem logical, it is unlikely that you can hook the DVD player to the VCR, since the VCR will refuse to let the signal pass though it, as part of its MacroVision copy protection. (This is the same sytem that prevents you from recording DVDs onto VHS tapes.)
