Using vcd/dvd combo with digital converter box

Now that I have my digital converter box installed, I can't get my vcr/dvd combo to work. I have one coaxial cable running from the "to TV Rf" of the converter to the "In from antennae" on the vcr/dvd. The other coaxial is going from the "Out to TV" from the vcr/dvd, to the Television (RCA brand). Actually this setup doesn't allow the converter box to run anyway. Any suggestions?
Thanks
Madeline

"Sounds" correct to me.  Are you going by the instructions that came with the converter box?  And, "ANT In" to the box from your antenna?

Can you connect directly from the DTV converter to the DVD recorder input using RCA phono connector cables? You'll have to select the input on the recorder menu as well.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

I think you may need an RF Modulator. This device will have connections for the DVD and TV and will have a channel 3/4 switch. Good luck to you.
