Re: connecting a samsung dvd-vr to TV with cable & rf...
It doesnt have a coaxial but it definitely has an Audio video connector port, what you do is buy one, its a 3 piece cable one is yellow for video, and the other two is red and white for audio, if your using flat panel TV it will definetely have that port.

OK here is a possible solution:
1) The best solution: Connect the antenna to your DVD-VCR through the RF Input and the the RF Out to your TV This take care of the VCR part. Then you get an RCA three way cable (Video-yellow marked, Right Audio-Red marked, Left Audio-white marked)connect the yellow marked RCA cord to the Video out of your DVD player then connect the other end to your video in of your TV. Ater that connect the red marked audio cable to the R Audio out of your DVD player to the R Audio in of your TV do the same for the white marked Audio cable. You will now be able to switch from VCR-RF to DVD-RCA.
I'm wondering where in the mix is your satellite receiver? The recorders currently on the market aren't able to decode digital satellite signals. They are capable of decoding cable but i'm unaware of any that work on satellite.
No,the DVD player build in tv can't record,only play DVD Disc only.Want to record personal VHS tapes only to DVD Discs,must have a seperate device unit VCR/DVD RECORDER device player not a device unit VCR/DVD PLAYER.Connected to the tv record VHS tapes to DVD Discs.
Initially, the only reason you would need/use a modulator is when the DVD/VCR has no RF OUT and the Quasar TV has no Audio/Video IN. If this were the case, then connections would be:
yellow Video Out of DVD/VCD to yellow Video IN of modulator;
red/white Audio Out of DVD/VCR to red/white Audio In of modulator;
modulator RF Out to RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar;
TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4;
if Modulator has no RF OUT but instead has a small antenna, still the TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4.
If however, the DVD/VCR has an RF OUT, then a coaxial patch cord from this could be connected to the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar. The TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4. There would be no need for the modulator.
The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.
You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If youdon't have the original remote and can't find it ever then the only way to reachyour tv is through coaxial antenna port. Soyou can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellowand white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game consoleetc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with acoax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4and other channels are still working,
