There are two ways of solving this problem
1.It seems to me that you need an RF Modulator Box. What this does is convert the RCA cables (Yellow,White,Red cables) into coax. You buy the box then plug you antenna and RCA cables into the box. The box has a coax output that goes to your TV. You can then switch from VCR\DVD to antenna.

2. I dont know if your VCR/DVD has it but try hooking up your antenna to the VCR coax INPUT and then hook up your TV to the coax OUTPUT. Both Coax INPUT and Coax OUTPUT should be on the back of the VCR/DVD device. Your going to need an extra Coax wire for this.

Hope this helps

Im trying to connect my unit to my tv to record shows and i having trouble doing so please help i am hooking it up wrong


For OTA or CATV signals, you need to daisy chain the coax from the source (antenna for OTA) to the coax input on DVD recorder and then the coax out to the coax input of the TV. If you have a set-top cable box with an incoming CATV signal, it should be connected between the DVD recorder and the TV.

The unit can tune in and record 480i (SD) ATSC (OTA digital), NTSC (OTA analog), analog CATV and digital CATV channels.

A satellite receiver or a non-CATV cable box should get the incoming signal first and then have their composite video output (A/V) connected to the DVD recorder composite video input and then their coax (RF) output (if present) gets connected to the TV. For these, you would record from the IN1 or IN2 (press Select Input) instead of selecting a channel. Then connect the composite video out on the recorder to the TV's composite video in.

Digital signals are either enough to tune in or give no signal. So check that your antenna is correctly oriented for OTA.

Separately, you can connect the video signal when playing DVDs via composite (good signal) out and component out (better signal) out to the TV's matching input. For the component video, the sound is carried on a separate cable. Then set the TV to the input source.

In the case of wanting to watch a VHS tape while taping to a DVD, do not use the Component video source, set the TV to Input 1 (composite).

I hope this helps.

I HAVE A ZENITH TELEVISION AND I CANNOT HOOK MY DVD/VCR COMBO TO IT. THERE IS NO PLACE TO PUT THE CABLE. MY TELEVISION HAS THE ANTENNA/CABLE PLUG AND THE YELLOW,WHITE,AND RED OUTLETS ON.


your TV has composit video in but your DVD/VCR only has Component video and Svideo outputs ..those are not compatable with your tv .. if you look more closely you might find an SVideo input on your tv .. its flat and not as easy to see as the normal jacks .. if your tv does have SVideo then all you need is an SVideo cable (plus the two sound cables) ... i could check on what you have if you give the TV model number .. othwise you have to have something to convert your SVideo to composit video .. there is a cable that does that .. you can check with radio shack .. if they do have such a cable then one end would plug into the svideo of the dvd/vcr . the other end would plug into the yellow jack on your tv .. hook up sound and it should work ok ..
here is such a cable on the internet ..

How to hook up protron pds-2315


First of all, the PDS-2315 is not a DVR (this question is incorrectly categorized), it is a home theater system. Also, this system is not a receiver -- it is a DVD player (DVD/CD/HDCD/CD-R/CD-RW/Kodak PCD Playback) with a "full function" Karaoke feature with two microphone inputs. If you haven't figured out how to set it up in the past 11 months, this is how you do it.

1. Connect the supplied RCA cables (labled FR, FL, SR, SL, Cen, and SW) to the corresponding RCA connections in the back of the DVD player and the back of the Sub-Woofer.

2. Connect the DVD Player to your television.

A. Video:

There are several options here depending on your available Television inputs: Coax Cable, Component (yellow jack), S-Video and Composite (composite providing the best video resolution and coax the poorest). HDMI is not available. Use s-video or composite if you can. You will note that the composite RCA jacks are colored Orange, Blue, and Green. In a pinch, any RCA Cables will work - just don't cross the color codes between the DVD Player and the television. If you need to use coax you will need a coax to RCA adapter. If your television only has a component jack (yellow), it's a simple connection between the two.

B. Audio:

On the back of the DVD player you'll find two RCA jacks labled "Main R" and "Main L". These will be connected to your Audio Out connections on the back of your television. If you don't have Audio Out RCA jacks on the back of your television, but have an earphone jack, you can purchase an RCA adaptor to make that connection. With rear audio out jacks, you should have an option in your television's audio setup menu to select those outputs. (DO NOT CONFUSE "AUDIO OUT" WITH "AUDIO INPUT" because the will look identical.) If you don't have either of these connections, you will not be able to use the system to listen to television signals.

3. Connect the speakers. Each of the speakers is labled with their position (FR, FL, CEN, SR, SL). The speaker wires are color coded to the spring connectors in the rear of the sub-woofer/amplifier. Press the spring lever and place the wire into the opening. For proper biasing, place the color coded wire into the colored spring connector and the other wire into the black connector for the specified speaker. Connecting the speakers should be very easy. If the ends of the speaker wires become damaged, simply strip the wires back half an inch and connect as above. Place the speakers as specified by their position lables (FL, CEN, FR in front of the television and SL and SR to the right and left of the seating.)

4. Plug it in and power on. You'll need to plug in both the DVD player and the sub-woofer. Press the power button, hit the open/close button on either the DVD player or the remote control and put a disc in the machine. If you don't have a picture or a "Protron" title screen, hit the "P-SCAN" button on the remote (top left corner below the "STANDBY" button).

5. Hit the "SETUP" key and enter your system's information and you're done. Your system will work just like any other DVD player with theatre quality sound. --With the added feature of functioning as a Karaoke machine! Just add proper Karaoke CDs, a couple microphones, a bunch of friends and copius amounts of alcohol . . .

No sound


Steve make sure that the coax is connected to the output on the DVD/VCR and to the TV's cable or antenna input. This should give you picture and sound on CH 3. If you use RCA jacks you must also use the yellow video plug as well on the same input on the TV as well as on the DVD to get both picture and sound to the tv. The place yoou put the RCA's on the TV will determine where the image will be displayed e.g. if connected to VIDEO 1 on TV YOU MUST CHANGE THE TV TO THE INPUT NAMED AUDIO 1. You can do this by using the input or source button on the remote control for the tv or go into the tv's menu and perform the task that way. I hope this helps you resolve the issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of more assistance.

Installing DVD player/RF Modulator with Star Choice


The RF modulator probably had a red, white, yellow trio of RCA jacks (A/V jacks), a coax jack marked "antenna" and another coax jack marked "TV"

Putting the DVD output to the A/V jacks allowed it to play out to the TV, which couldn't otherwise accept the DVD player.

The satellite box probably has coax and a/v jacks as output. Use the coax as output to the antenna input of the RF modulator, and the A/V jacks of the DVD player to the A/V jacks of the RF modulator. Hopefully the modulator allows the A/V jacks to have priority over the coax input, so that when the DVD plays it "wins"

Magnavox MWR10D6 can't record from camcorder wrong channel


OK...try this...plug your RCA cables from your camcorder into the RCA input jacks on the back of the recorder. If you have a VCR, it can be plugged into the coax input on the back of the recorder. Use the coax output and plug it into a RF modulator (about $20 at Wal Mart). Plug the RCA output cables from the recorder into the RF modulator as well (Don't ask me why, but it seems to work on mine). Connect a coax cable from the RF modulator to the TV. Make sure the TV and Recorder are both on the right channel. The RF modulator will have a channel switch to use channel 3 or 4 on the TV. Make sure the recorder is set to E1 (Rear). You can check this with the channel +/- buttons on the bottom right of the remote. Good luck.
