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.

First off do you have a cable box? Also the video input on your tv should have a yellow plug, these use RCA type connectors. The red and white are for audio. There are several ways of setting this up. You will want to go out of your cable box to one of the inputs on the new yamaha receiver. Then you will want to use the monitor out on the receiver to go to your tv's video input. Then your audio will be going through the stereo, and your video will go through the receiver and output to your tv.
If you still have more questions please let me know.
Thank you,

How does my mother hook up the antenna and get her TV to work (no cable)


First, you'll want to make sure that her antenna has a coaxial cable (one of the thick round ones) coming from the antenna. Some older ones have a flat piece of plastic with two wires sticking out. These are less efficient, but if you have one, use a balun (a vhf-uhf matching transformer) to change to coax. You can google "balun" if you don't know what one looks like. Next, you'll need a digital converter box (if you don't have one already). Connect one end of the coax cable to the antenna (or balun) and the other to the jack on the converter box labeled "ant. in." Finally, using another coax cable, connect one end to the jack on the converter box labeled "to tv" and the other end to the jack on the TV labeled "ant. in." Finally, depending on your converter box, you will probably need to "scan " for tv channels. Follow the setup instructions with the converter box to do this. If you don't have the instructions, try googling the converter box company and model number to find the users manual. I hope this helps, and good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

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.

Cannot connect zenith vcr to zenith tv thru cable box


Hello mcgillicu390,

From your VCR you should have an (RF OUT) and an (RF IN) Connector (these also might be marked as ANT IN and ANT OUT, or CABLE IN and CABLE OUT).

The same goes for your TV (RF IN), (ANT IN) or (CABLE IN).

Now, take your Coaxial Cable (Cable with screw on or Push on connector with a wire in the center of it) and connect it to the TV (RF IN), take the other end of the same cable and connect it to the VCR (RF OUT).

Then connect your cable TV set top box or antenna to the (RF IN) of the VCR.

If you are using a cable box set your VCR and TV to Channel 3 or 4 (depending on your area)

If you are just using the VCR and an antenna set your TV to channel 3 or (depending on your area).

That should do it for coaxial connectivity.

If you are using the composite video and Audio cables to connect to your TV here are the directions for that.


Looking at the back of your TV you will see Three RCA type connectors colored as Yellow, White, and Red. Yellow is Video, White is your Left Audio, and Red is your Right Audio. They should be marked as (Video IN), (R Audio IN), and (L Audio IN). *note these markings may not be exactly like what is written, however the indicators should be close to what you are seeing.

Now look at your VCR, you may see a lot of RCA Connectors (up to 6 of these connectors) don't worry, you are only looking for the ones that say (Video OUT) (R Audio OUT), and (L Audio OUT).

Once you find the connectors on both pieces of equipment, take the Yellow, Red, and White tipped cables and plug the in their respective jacks Yellow tipped cable connects VCR (Video OUT) to TV(Video IN). Red tipped cable connects VCR (R Audio OUT) to TV (R Audio IN), and finally White tipped cable connects VCR (L Audio OUT) to TV (L Audio IN),

Once the cables are connected you will be able to use the composite selection on your remote to view the images from your VCR, the VCR in this case will be acting as the tuner for your TV with out you having to set the TV to channel 3 or 4, you will just have to use the AUX or whatever setting on you remote that allows the composite video to display.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Hissing sound from a Panasonic old TV...Sound and picture are OK. The hissing sound even continues when the MUTE on the Box is ON. The hissing only stops when the MUTE on the TV is ON. I am using the...


If you disconnect or power off the converter box does the hiss go away?
If you connect a VCR or DVD player does it still have the hiss? We
need to isolate what source is causing the hiss if it is from the set or
if it is from the converter box.
When you turn the volume control down on the set, does the hiss
reduce in level? If mute stops it, it should reduce in level as you
turn the volume down. Then turn up the sound level control on
the converter box whether its a manual control or by remote. If you
can get a combination that minimizes the hiss and gets higher sound
level from the programming that may cure it.
I am not familiar with the converter box you are using. Are you using
Audio/Video cables from it to the set or is it coming out with coaxial cable
and used on a channel? If you are using a very old set with a tuner input
perhaps the fine tuning is out of adjustment.

Want to hook up Zenith converter box with RCA F25432 TV


Generally you just use either the F port (used often for cable or coaxial connections) or the RCA (composite) inputs.

Stereo Sound on new LCD Samsung Series 5 TV


Hi there,
It appears you may be using a cable type which isnt compatible with stereo. The Coaxial output on a lot of the old VCRs dont always support stereo so that may be your problem right there. i suggest you try connecting the cable box directly to your TV using a scart cable. Scart definately supports stereo audio so if this doesnt give you stereo sound the problem lies within the cable box's audio settings which you should be able to access with your remote.

ope this helps you solve your problem :)
Good Luck.
