Have a DVD, Phillips/Magnavox (Oct99) Product # KT029940022009, Model # DVD825/173 with output on a Video-Audio connection to : the 2nd series Video-Audio connection to the back-end connections to a Phillips/Magnavox Smart Series TV, Model #MS3250C321.
Note: on TV the 1st series Video-Audio is used with our RF connection to feed a series of VCR, and Satellite TV and local aperture feed TV channel signals. VCR on channel 3 and Satellite signal is received on channel 4. Local TV channels are received on corresponding local active VHF/UHF channels, which are the following: 2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 16, 22, 26, 45.
The question is the following: How do we enable the second series Video-Audio port active signal from the DVD?

Re: DVD input with signal access
IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in
IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.
THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

may be your tv systems don't have an accessory for audio video input. but you can hookup that by using an RF modulator adapter, this is a converter from audio / video to RF signal and connected directly to your antenna connection. you can purchase that RF modulator adapter to an electronics store.
Most DVD players today have only RCA jacks for video and audio outputs, and don't have RF (channel 3 or 4) outputs. If your TV doesn't have AV input jacks (either too old or just not supplied on your model) you can't connect the DVD player directly. You'll need to get an RF converter to make the connection.
An RF converter costs about $15 and you'll find them where you can buy TVs. The converter takes the video and audio signals from the DVD player and creates a channel 3 or 4 output signal to your TV. If you don't have the cables already, make sure to get them too. You need a "dubbing cable" (RCA plugs on the ends, usually color-coded red, white and yellow) to connect the DVD player to the converter input jacks and an RF cable with "F connectors" on the ends for the output to the TV. Often the dubbing cable comes with a new DVD player, and the RF cable with the RF converter.
If this takes care of your connection troubles, please take a moment to give my solution a good rating. If I've missed something and can be of more help, please post a followup comment.
firstly try that tv to a different tv
if this works
then check your tv av connections in side tv
also check cables continuity
if this fails buy a AV/ RF converter, have your AV be connected to a converter, and let your output be RF feed to a tv, RF input, so instead of using AV on your tv you will be using RFchannel mode

I don't know this model of TV in particular. I can give you a generic answer that should allow you to figure this out.
Check the options for your TV set. See if there are the connectors at the rear side for an external audio and video input that is compatible to your DVD player. This would be an external video audio input option. If there is and you do not have a switch for it, then you need the original factory remote contol. Many of the universal remotes lack the full features of the products.
If your TV set does not have the option for external video and audio, one work around is to purchase an audio video RF TV modulator. Many of the stores that sell TV options usually carry these devices. You can then add a CATV 2 way cable switch to switch between the modulator and your cable service or antenna. You will have to purchase the additional necessary interconnect cables.
On the input of the RF TV modulator you would connect the DVD player. The quality will not be very good, but at least you will be able to watch the DVD player on your TV set.
Once you figure everything out, bring a print of this email to the dealer. When he looks at all this he should know exactly what you require.
Anyways here are the detailed instructions for connecting a DVD recorder to a TV
The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to
determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV
source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This
is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD
Recorder and the TV.
If you have an older TV that only accepts
RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial
cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on
the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to
the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality)
option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
If you want to
use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source
(Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using
Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red
and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA
outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite
cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA
outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video
output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input
on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on
the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the
S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder
and the input on the TV.
To use Component Video cables and RCA
audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white
RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the
DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio
cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD
Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything
to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording
Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be
passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV
screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either
channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to
change channels and record.
If you made connections using
either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record
TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to
be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs
and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the
proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
If you have a
Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a
Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD
Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.
In your model you have to purchase one video RF converter. RF converter contains one video input in yellow colour and two audio input in red and white colour and one cable connector as output. Connect the dvd output to this converter and tune the tv program in which place you receive dvd signal.
