Digitial TV Converter

Thank you for your help! They only give you one black cable with the box with coaxial ends on it and the audio/video cables. I can connect the black one to the antenna adaptor on the tv and the antenna jack on the box. Do I need to buy another cable to hook to the other antenna adaptor that goes to rf cable on the box? Sorry...I'm not good with electronics, cables, etc. Thank you! Robin

The antenna connects to the ant jack on the digital converter box. The cable you are describing goes from the tv jack on the box to the ant jack on the tv. If this does not work we will need more info. Hope this helps.

How do I find the right channel to set my tv on so it will receive cable tv


If it is a cable box and you are connecting via coaxial cable using the rf converter in the box it is usually channel 3-4 but it can often be switched. If it is a satellite box it may use a high channel number like 73. Keep in mind that there is a traditional tuner and a digital tuner in your tv set so you made need to connect the cable and then do a channel setup for it to sense the active channel.

The image quality is best when the cable box is connected in this order from poorest to best; coaxial cable, rca cables (red,white,yellow), s-video (on older televisions), component video and optical audio using the three yellow, blue, green cables for video and a white or red for audio or optical input, DVI, or the best, HDMI with support for 1080p and audio. On your TV you should use an HDMI cable and simply change the Input or source button to that. The HDMI cable integrates video and sound and it will transmit a dolby surround signal to your TV just as a separate optical connection will.

Don't have cable. Have the digital converter box and a indoor antenna...it's hooked up and TV is playing fine. After hours of changing every cable the VCR will not play. I get the sound of the movie but no...


You can connect VCR, TV and converter box using coaxial cables OR you can connect using RCA cables. See this web page:
http://columbiaisax.googlepages.com/diagram_dtv_tv_vcr.htm
Using RCA cables, make sure you connect the yellow video cable. Select the proper input on the TV.

I have installed a Digitalstream DTX9950 converter box with my TV attached to a rooftop antenna. I can turn the TV off and on with the DTX9950 remote, but I can't bring in any stations, other than the DT...


Are you using the coaxial cable to connect the converter box to the set, or have you hooked it up with rca type video cables? The latter are highly recommended if you want a better connection and have audio/video inputs on the back of your television. But you don't want both A/V & coaxial.
Also be aware that some older antennae will not pick up digital signals well. Try to use a coaxial cable all the way up to the antenna junction. Find out where most signals are broadcast from in your area and aim the antennae appropriately. (Use a compass.) See helpful link here. Your converter remote should have a signal strength button that you can use to check the various channel strengths. If you're using a coaxial link to the tv and have little signal strength, expect a poor picture. You'll also want to select the Mono option for Audio Output in the converter menu.
Finally, depending on the age of your set, if you're using rca video inputs, use the TV/Video button or the AV button on the TV or universal remote to switch the input from the channel on your TV to the video 1 setting (or whatever picks up the digital converter signal) so you'll get that clear signal. Then you can use the converter remote to change channels, adjust volume, etc.

Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.

assume the cable tv box represents the converter box

you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.

Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.

If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.

You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?

So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.

the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.

That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Hook cable box to this receiver


I have similar situation with my TXDS 565 and could not video out of my unit after hooking up the cables properly in and out of the unit for all auxilary modules... I assume that you have tried to place your vid IN from the cable box to your units vid IN and run a vid OUT cable or S cable to your TV. If this doesn't work for you as it did not for me, then you must run your cable direct to the TV vid IN and run your audio out from the TV audio Out back to your reciever as audio IN in the Video I or II ports on the reciever unit. This will give you audio control through the rec. unit.

I suspect that my is damaged and will not function properly; yours may be too,

My unit is about 10 years old and repair is too expensive so I will run it this way until something else fails and I will replace it... probably not Onkyo.,'

Let me know if I clearify any of this.

How do I hook up a dvd player recorder to my tv, so I can record? thank you DEE


Hi dbird30,
You will notice that your DVD player has two types of cables, one that is three cables in one with yellow, red and white colors; and other that is bigger and cylindrical, we call this a coaxial cable. To record from the TV you must unplugg the TV's cable and plugg it into your DVD player, plugg it where it says 'cable' or 'input'. Now you must connect the coaxial cable it came with your DVD player and plugg it into the DVD player where it says 'to TV' or 'output' and connect the other side of the coaxial cable to the TV. At the end you should see that the cable that was plugged into your TV is now plugged into your player, and the player is now connected through another coaxial cable to the TV.
