Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

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

Can't get hooked up so it ALL works vcr, converter box, dvd...


If the DVD works through this "box". Things are looking alright. There must be a number of inpus or hookups to connect VCRs or DVDs or what ever to this "box" that then allow you to hook tp the TV.
If this is the case there has to be a way to swithc the box to the different things hooked to this box so that you can see& hear them.
I do not know what this box is, but can only guess you need to get the manual or more info on how it works.

If you can try to hook each one of your pieces seperately to the box.
First unhook the DVD that works, and hook the VCR. If works, unhook the VCR and hook up the the enxt piece. That way you'll know if each of them is working.

Poor viewing with VCR


how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?
