Yes. This unit only relays the TV signal...the coaxial output can't be used to watch DVDs or play the DVR, all operations are done via the component, composite, or S-Vid outputs. The coaxial simply passes the TV signal out as in from cable TV to DVR and from DVR to TV. If you still do not get an RF signal to pass through th unit, check the cable to make sure the wire is not bent or brocken on either ends.

Trying to connect a DVD player to a TV that is only equipped with a cable jack what do I do


You need an A/V to RF adapter to convert the audio and video outputs of the DVD player to RF so that you can watch the DVD player on an available VHF channel on the TV. See this device offered by Amazon:
RF Modulator TV Switch Audio Video RCA Ant Input to Type Coax Output...
You may also need a short 75 ohm length of coaxial cable with "F" type connectors on both ends and A/V cables with RCA plugs to complete the setup.

Will not connect to tv channel


  • Connect the existing Aerial/Cable TV
    signal (or from the Cable Box/Satellite
    Receiver {RF OUT or TO TV}) to the
    ANTENNA-IN socket on the
    recorder.

  • Use the supplied RF coaxial cable to
connect TV-OUT socket on the
recorder to the aerial input socket on
your TV (VHF/UHF RF IN).

Helpful Hint:
- Depending on how you have currently
connected your TV channel (directly from an
off-air aerial or Cable box or VCR), you will
have to disconnect some of the cables before
you make the above connection.

Connection to my old TV


your tv do not have an audio/video input...what you need is a device called RF modulator, it converts the audio/video signal from your dvd player into RF signal similar to the signal from the cable operator.it has an audio/video input and a coaxial cable output..

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    Cant connect coaxial


    Most DVD players now only have a/v outputs only, and not an RF (antenna) output for channel 3 or 4. Your simplest solution is to get an RF converter (most stores carry them in their TV departments). This takes the a/v signals from the DVD and produces the channel 3 or 4 output to feed to the other set.

    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!
