If your vcr has an ant. in and out to tv coax type jacks the signal should pass through when the vcr is off or in tv mode. Make sure tv is on the output channel of the converter box(usually ch 3 or 4). If your vcr is different please give more info.

HT DB600 I NEED TO KNOW THE CORRECT PLUGS THAT GO FROM SURROND SYSTEM TO TV


APPLY CABLE CONNECTION ELIMINATIONS TECHNIQUE.

First, make sure the speakers, woofers are connected to the surround unit receptacle area located at rear end of device. Second, make sure the power cable is connected to the surround device at rear end and plugged into external power outlet like an extension cord. Third, the remaining connection ports on the surriound unit are for transfering signals back and forth to TV or DVD, VCR, DVR, player devices. Usually the surround unit may be capable of connections to more than once recorder device causing the prevailence of several remaining ports receptables located at rear of unit. However, first, attempt to acheive connection to display unit like a TV set. if that were successful, the last remaining port wirings would be expected to allow for DVD, VCR, DVR, Media devcie connections. The surround device may not have been acquired with several cable wires to connected to every available home appliance. However, the surround device ports are several at rear area of unit to support several home media player connectivity. If several home player device are required to be connected to the surround system, the cable wiring may have to be acquired from retails to complete the signal sharign and splitting process. Refer to the user guide on step by step instruction on achieving connectivity. Also provided on the user guide are details contributing toward acquirign accessories for the device or performing manufacturers diagnostics.

Cant see wii picture, it is connected through my vcr


You don't say how what the VCR make/model or your TV and its capabilities. The video pass-through of your VCR would be described in its manual. I'd skip past the VCR if it was my Wii.

Here are the relevant manuals for what we know...

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Nintendo-Wii-Gaming-Consoles-manual/id/765ag008/t/2/

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Curtis-DVD6041-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/2869ci160/t/2/

The Curtis doesn't haved a composite video in so I thin the solution would be to run theWii Video to the TV's Composite Video In (usually just marjed "video"), and the Wii Audio to the Curtis Aux In 1 or 2. Obviously, one of these connection will require the cable t obe extended to reach two different destinations.

Page 8 in the Wii manual shows the AV cable. It requires a composite video input (the Yellow tip).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composite_video

Page 12 shows its connection to any standard AV device. That would be the TV or the VCR for Video, as the Curtis apparently doesn't have a composite video input, and the audio could go to the Curtis, the TV, or both using a couple Y-adapter to share the audio. That way you could use the Wii with the TV only or with the audio from the Curtis.

Or you could just run the supplied Wii Audio to the Curtis and get a single RCA cable extender with a Female on one end and a Male on the other to reach the Video to the TV or VCR.

The following is 12' long, for example...

Ignorance on my part. Elect went out for hours; when came back on, no sound. Has something to do with onkyo and it's something simple. I've been thru this before; always seems to happen beginning of 3...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, postback with the model numbers of the cable box, the DVD/VCR combo, the TV and the Onkyo. Additionally describe the plug/cable colors used form what jack of what device to which jacks of the next device.

Offhand, it would appear that the connection is basically output of one device is fed as the input of the following device. That being so, each of the devices (except the cable box) would have to be set for which of its inputs was used.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa. Merry Christmas.

WHAT IS THE CORRECT WAY TO SET-UP TV, VCR, DVD, & DIGITAL CONVERTER BOX?


Connect the antenna to the converter box. Connect the output of the converter box to the vcr. Connect the output of the vcr to the tv. Connect the dvd to the component input (Red-White-Yellow) of the tv (if there is one. If not then connect the dvd to the component input of the vcr.
With this arrangement you will be able to tape programs on the vcr if you want. If the vcr is not on the signal from the converter box will pass through to the tv.

Ambiuous Information out there


Hi,

I kind of think the people that wrote the manuals didn't bother hooking up a unit. Here is some help.

The converter box is nothing more then a tv tuner that picks up a digital signal and converts it into analog so your tv can view it.

The vcr, to record programs has to be set to channel 3 or 4 (whatever the converter box is broadcasting on) to record. The converter for the vcr will have to set to whatever channel you want to record from every time you use the vcr and left on as this is the only was the vcr can pick up a signal. Make sure the power saver on the converter box is set to off.

If your tv converter box has digital pass through, all you have to do is turn the tv converter box off and it your tv should pick up the singal from your vcr when you play tapes. You also use this method to access the menu on the vcr.

How to connect my dvd & vcr with the converter box


Here is my setup.
1) Separate DVD player 2) Separate VCR 3) Digital to Analog Converter box 4) Analog TV 5) Rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna
The antenna goes into the converter box.   The RF-output of the converter goes into the RF-Input of the VCR The DVD output goes into the front input jacks of the VCR The VCR RF-output goes into the TV RF-Input The VCR Line output goes into the front of the TV
To watch DVDs, we turn on the DVD player, turn on the VCR, and set the VCR channel to L2, and tune the TV to channel 3.  The converter is off.
To auto record on the VCR, the converter must be tuned to the station being recorded.  The converted must be turned on, the TV can be off. 
To watch VCR tapes, turn the TV and VCR on.  The TV is set to channel 3.  Just press play on the VCR.
