    Dorothy, Thanks. I think I used the wrong term (you can tell how electronicly challanged I am!). I should have said HDV. Can you help me out with this? I don't know the difference beteen LCD and HDV (if in fact, that is the right term). It's the thing that says you TV won't work after February 2009 unless you are hooked up to this. I have comcast cable but they don't have a code for poloroid and I have to use two remotes now (one to turn on and for sound and another to also turn on and change the channel. I'm wondering if this can be converted or whatever. Any info you have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks --- Sandog

Greetings Sandog,

In reviewing the specs for this television, you should be able to hook the DVD player up without using an RF Modulator. You will obtain your best picture by using the component connections. (Red, Green, Blue)

I hope this helps!
Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.

    Greetings Sandog,

    I believe you are seeking whether or not you will need a Digital Converter box come February 2009. For the television you have, you should not need the converter box. Your television is capable of receiving digital signals presently. Only older analog television will need these boxes.

    I hope this clarifies!

    Thank you,


    Go Ahead. Use Us.

I brought Home Theater PHILIPS HTS3565 but when I tried to play my file "AVI" it says codec is not supported but this file can be played in all of my device except PHILIPS. I have already...

Greetings - Your home theater setup will not play xvid or mpeg 4 files. The formats supported are MPG 1 and 2, Divx, and WMV .

If you'd like to view any .AVI or .MP4 files you would have to use a computer and re-encode them to a compatible format.

You will find a list of the software and links to download (much of it free) tools HERE that you can use to convert video to a compatible format (MPG2 is always a good safe format that plays on anything).

Good Luck,

I have rca STB7766G1 converter box can I connect my dvd player

Trial and error. There is no list of products that will work together and how, so when you have situations that come up such as these you have to connect the electronic devices and see what happens. What's worse is that the combination will not always work with the same brands and even if you do get this to work today it might not work tomorrow.
Ok connect the DVD player to the television. Where it says out on the DVD player you connect the connecting cables either yellow, white, and red or green, blue, red, white, red. You connect the other end of them to the television. Put the television on the correct input. Try playing a movie to make sure the dvd player and television are connected properly.
Ok now where it says IN on the DVD player. Connect a yellow, red, and white cable. The other end of that cable connects to the converter box where it says out.
You can also connect the converter box and the dvd player in this way if applicable. If the dvd player has an RF (coax) IN connect a coaxial cable there and connect it to where it says OUT on the converter box.
Then you connect an antenna to where it says ANTENNA IN on the converter box. Now you will have to be able to put your dvd player in input (aux) or turn it to channel 3. You will always leave your dvd player in input (aux) or on channel 3. You will only change channels on the converter box with its remote control or the buttons directly on it. Good luck!

How do you copy vcr to dvd

You cannot directly copy a Video from a VCR to a DVD unless you have a DVD recorder with a video input.
If other wise you need to play the Video and using a converter card this has to be converted, compressed and digitized using the PC and the converter card.

Can a digital tv and a analog dvd recorder be hooked up to a converter box using a spilter?

Not sure of your question.It's Apples n Oranges.The Digital TV does not need a Ditital converter box, the DVD if an older model does.The DVD recorder also needs a remote sensor and needs to learn how to switch channels if it was able to do so before.The issue is your DVR go to the Manufactures Website for more info.If you just want to record what you watch on the TV connect the TV Audio Video out to DVR IN.Good Luck

You will need an RF converter, if they still sell them. Radio Shack, Best Buy etc. did sell them for about $20.

Why are you running hdmi to converter box? Run HDMI cable directly from dvd to new Panasonic plasma. The less things in between, the better the picture.
