Connect the yellow, white, and red cables from your cable box (output) to the (input 1) connector on the dvd recorder. Then connect the yellow, white, and red cables from your dvd recorder (output) to a (input) on your tv (make a note as to which input on the tv you use). then turn on your tv (set your tv by pressing input, line, or channel down from channel 2 until you see the input you connected your dvd recorder to). then power your dvd recorder on (you should see it on your tv screen), then change the input on your dvd recorder to input 1 (or which ever one you connected your cable box to). Then power on your cable box (now you should see your cable programming on your tv, passing through your dvd recorder). Now you should be all set to watch, and record what ever you want, (however most dvd recorders will not record copyrighted materal, their is a signal transmited ny the owner of the movie, or other content.)

What type of cords do I need to hook up a akia PDP4273m1 to my cable box


Which cable box are you trying to connect to the PDP4273m1? The best choice of cable will depend on the outputs available on the cable box. If your cable box has HDMI (looks like a rectangle with small cutouts on one long side) out, get an HDMI (type A on both sides) video cable and connect it between that port and the TV's HDMI in. (This connection doesn't require an extra audio cable.) If your cable box has a DVI (out, get a DVI to HDMI adapter and the HDMI cable (or a DVI to HDMI cable). Connect the DVI side to the cable box and then the HDMI cable to the TV Then get an RCA audio cable (two male ends on each side, usually red and white). Connect this to the audio out jacks on the cable box and to the DVI audio in ports on the TV.

If you do not have either of those outputs, check for a component video/audio output. Get the component video cable (with 3 RCA plugs on each end - red, blue and green) and an RCA audio cable. Match the colors on each side as you connect the devices.

If those aren't available, the S-video or composite video cables will work. The composite video cable comes with the audio connectors (red, white, yellow RCA plugs). They aren't part of the S-video cable and must be obtained separately. These are limited to standard video (no HD) so they are not the best choices with your tv.

If your cable box has SCART out, you will need an adapter for that. Most provide composite or S-video out. See http://www.svideo.com/scart2.html for one of these. Note: you will need to match the adapter to the CART output or get a converter.

The connections should be from the left side: serial port (RS-232 for service), HDMI, digital audio out (for connecting to a home theater receiver), DVI audio In, two component video and audio in, a composite video/audio in and out and an S-video with audio in. The manual for the PDP4273M1 is available from Retrevo here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Akai-PDP4273M1-TVs-manual/id/741bh140/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the manual.

i hope this helps. Please add a comment with your cable box make/model/provider if you want more help.

(very few TVs come with the A/V cables these days. Some set-top boxes will come with the composite video cables.)

I cant get my blu-ray home theatre system to work when watching tv. Help please


I assume you mean for hearing TV-related audio. You don't mention any models here so generic advice is what you get.

Consider where the TV-related audio originates (Hint: it may not be the TV, but could be a Cable / SAT Box). If so, THAT is the source you need to draw audio from. Connect the highest form of whatever compatible audio output it has to your HTS and choose it when you want to watch TV. Connect the basic audio from the Box to the TV if you want to skip using the HTS for sound.

I have a 19 " sansul cant get my ilive sound bar


I hope this helps. You have to connect your sound bar to your cable box/satellite tv receiver. If you are connecting with composite or component cables you connect the video cables (either the yellow or the green blue and red cables) between the television and the cable box /satellite tv receiver. Then you connect the red and white audio portion of the cable between the cable box/satellite tv receiver and the sound bar. You are going from the OUTPUT of the cable box/satellite tv receiver to the INPUT on the television and sound bar. You use the function/source/input button on the sound bar to choose the space you plugged the cables into on it or listen to the radio or listen to your IPOD and etc.

Cant hook dvd/vcr to my cable box the manual says I need a extern


The cable box IS an external tuner.  You should connect the video output (either S video, HDMI, or component video) of the cable box to the video input of the DVD.  Then connect the audio output of the cable box to the audio input of the DVD via stereo RCA cables.  If your tv monitor has multiple inputs (ie: video 1, 2, and 3...) connect the video and audio output of the DVD to your tv monitor using an alternate video input (if cable box goes into your tv thru video 1, connect the DVD to video 2).  If your cable box only has one output, or your tv has only one input, then just connect your cable box to the DVD as above, and connect the DVD to your tv.

Go video model dv-241 hook up to make vhs to work


There are a fews ways of accomplishing this.
It sounds like you may reversed your cable connections. Lets try these steps.

On the back of your cable box and your Go video VCR/DVD there are two coxial connections an (OUT) and an (IN):

Step 1. Connect the coxial cable from Comcast to the (IN) connection on the back of the cable box.
Step 2. Connect one end of a spare coxial cable to the (OUT) connection on the back of the cable box.
Step 3. Connect the other end to the (IN) connection on the back of your GO Video box..
Step 4. Connect one end of another spare coxial cable to the (OUT) connection on the back of your Go Video Box.
Step 5. Connect the other end of the Coxial cable to the back of your TV.

I hope that you find this solution helpful.

My sanyo vcr won't record, but can play.


Hello nrj9,

When you upgraded your cable box you changed the dynamics of your system. Try this.

Connect the coax from the wall to your cable box, then connect the HDMI cable (if you have this) from your cable box to your TV and the component video out connection from the cable box to your component video input of the VCR and then your VCR component video out to your TV's component video in.

What this will allow you to do is:

Using the TV chose between the VCR and the cable box for video,
using the VCR record from the cable box.

There are other configurations, but this one is the best for what I think you want to do.

I hope this helps

Thank you,
