Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

1 Answer

How to connect?

Hi
I have an old TV and therefore nowhere to connect a DVD. So, I took my Phillips DVD/VCR (DVD 750VR) and hooked that up - you would think, problem solved?! Well, no... now in this day in age, this girl wants to be able to play AVI's and this DVD won't do it! So, I tried hooking my stand alone DVD that plays AVI's in the Video slot in the front of the machine - it has all 3 plugs for it! But I can't find my instruction book for this machine, so I can't figure out how to access this other DVD!
I know back in the olden days, this is how they made such things as Atari work but I feel I'm missing something!
Can you help?

Get a three-way aerial connector for the back of your TV. It'll only cost you about £1. All it is, is an extra aerial socket where you can attach you dvd player.
It has 2 Female and 1 Male connector on it. You put the Male connector into your TV where the aerial goes. Then plug in your Aerial into one of the Female connections. Then plug in your dvd player via the coaxial lead ( not a scart lead) into the other Female connection. And turn on your dvd player and tune your Tv to pick up the dvd player. And hopefully that's it.
The connector your after look like a triangle shape with three metal bits sticking out where you plug in your Tv/dvd cables
Hope this helps

Dvd hookup to phillips tv without inputs


Have yourself a VCR that has a Scart input, or Video in, and feed the DVD in there. Connect your TV to the VCR, and tune it in to the video channel, using aerial lead and tuner.

When you flick VCR to AV1 (or similar) you should see the DVD appear on the TV Video Channel :)

I have separate dvd player and vcr, how do I hook coverter box up


It took some time, but I finally have this figured it out so everything works.

I have the same setup, but I had one additional piece to the puzzle that I had to figure out. I have an older TV and use and antenna, but had to buy an Audio/Video RF Modulator a couple of years ago to use my VCR & DVD player with the old setup.

Get yourself an Audio/Vido RF Modulator (you can pick one up for about $20-30).
Connect the TV to the RF Modulator.
You should have 2 connectors for your antenna. Connect one to the converter "To Ant" and the other to the RF Modulator.
Connect the convertor A/V cable to "IN" on your VCR.
Connect the cable from converter "To TV (RF)" to "UHF/VHF from Ant" on VCR.
Connect the VCR "OUT" cable to the RF Modulator.
Connect DVD A/V cables to A/V input on VCR.

Your TV should be set to Channel 3 (or 4, depending on your setup) and depending on your "input" connections, you should be able to view vidoes from VCR like this and DVD by changing the input (the button should be on your VCR or other remote). For ex. my input changes on my VCR from channels, to L1 & L2. My converter & VCR play on L1 and DVD's play when I change it to L2.

Now, I just have to figure out how to add the converter box to my universal remote. :)
Good luck!

Memorex television is not working with my new Phillips DVD/VCR combo


depending on how you hooked it up; if thru coax cable the you have to use channel 3 or 4 on the tv to use Philips. If you are connecting with video and audio cables then you have to select a/v input on tv to use.

New VCR Old TV


Hi This problem has been around for some time when connecting a DVD player to an older tv, and now has become a problem with newer VCR's. You must purchase a device called an RF Modulator which will allow you to connect to the older tv. We sell them at our shop for $30.00 but I have seen them quite often for $65.00 and up...so it pays to shop around. Good Luck
