You'll have to get a converter in order to get a Coaxial connection converted to RCA or HDMI and be able to connect it to newer TV's that do not have a Coaxial connection.

If you search Amazon (or your favorite retailer) for "RF Modulator" you should come up with several options. You should be able to find Coaxial to RCA adapters for

Without you giving any more detail about the TV or the set-top box, the box probably has the connections you need to connect your VCR. You could connect the VCR to the secondary coax on the DTV box, or if it has them you could use standard A/V connectors (yellow=video red and white=stereo audio).

The easiest would be to use the other coax connection and look in the DTV boxes manual to see if there is anything you have to change on the box via the menu system.

Thanks for using Fix Ya and happy viewing.

Mintek DTV-260


The Mintek DTV-260 only has a NTSC (analog) tuner. You will need to connect your RCA antenna to a digital to analog converter box to watch TV over the air. Then connect the output of the converter box to your TV.

The common converter boxes are limited to SD output. You might be able to find an HD converter box online. (With the standard converter box, the available outputs are coaxial and composite video.) The DTV-260 has a composite video port; alternatively set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and use the coaxial (RF) input on the TV.

There may be a low-power station that still broadcasts in analog. However these are rare. You will need to switch from CATV to OTA (Air) to check for one of these stations. Analog Cable has different parameters than scanning for over the air signals.

I hope this helps.

I want to connect our VCR to the new Sharp HDTV,but I do not find audio,video out on the tv.How do I link the two?


Some HDTVs can output analog video and audio but if you say your HDTV does not, then you would have to use some other tuner/box/decoder/converter such as a cable box if you have cable TV service or a DTV converter box for over-the-air TV or a satellite box. The VCR would connect to the tuner/converter box and record analog video and audio using the RCA yellow video and white audio jacks. Standard VCRs cannot record high-def video except as down-converted analog video.

The VCR would then connect to the HDTVs inputs (yellow, white) for playback.

How do you connect a coaxile cable wire to nec plasma tv that has no coaxile connection plug.


You need to have a decoder box from a over-the-air (DTV), cable or satellite provider that has an HDMI, "S" video, composite video, VGA or component video outputs to connect to the TV's input. The coaxial cable only plugs into the decoder box. Apparently your TV doesn't have a tuner for coaxial RF.

Mitsubishi HS-U540 VHS VCR How do you connect the red, white, and yellow cables?


The RED is Right Speaker the WHITE is Left Speaker and the YELLOW is for
Video. They connect with RCA Cables to the same color coded inputs on yout TV.

You may find it easlier to just use a CoAxial Cable; Use a CoAxial for the CABLE IN to the Cable Box then 1 CoAxial from the Cable Box OUT to the VCR IN then use 1 OUT from VCR to TV IN. That is much easlier then using RCA Cables.

Use only one box.
Connection should be:::Video Source(cable, antenne) connected to converter box:::::Converter box connected to VCR:::VCR connected to TV.
Try this connection and let me know how it goes.

DTV Converter hookup


Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter? h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1")[0];h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML); Hi,

I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.

Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.

  1. You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
  2. You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
  3. You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
  4. You will be able to use the timed record function on the VCR but you must adhere to steps 1-3.
If this sounds freakishly familiar to recording on a digital cable or satellite set-top box, you are right. It is exactly like recording a signal from a digital cable box or satellite receiver. While it may be inconvenient to perform the steps above, at least the option still exists to record on a VCR while using a DTV converter box.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.

Need directions to install a dch70 box to tv


dear woolifer ,
I am not an expert but i hope i can help you..
is it youmean digital cablebox?
if it is try this-

This is a problem a lot of people have with coaxial-only televisions because DVD players do not have coaxial (RF) outputs, which means they can't be connected directly into a television with only a coaxial (RF) input. The solution is to purchase a RF modulator, which is a small device that will convert the AV output from the DVD player to coaxial (RF).
As for the instructions, I am going to assume the DVD player is not a combo unit with the VCR, and that you want to record TV on your VCR. Step 4 will include connecting your DVD player, but if the DVD player is a combo unit with the VCR, just ignore step 4 part as DVD connection will be included in the VCR set up. Actually, you wouldn't need the RF modulator if it is a VCD/DVD combo unit.
  1. Connect the coaxial cable coming out from the wall to your digital cable box in the ‘video in’ slot. It might also be labeled ‘antenna in’ or ‘cable in’.
  2. From the cable box, connect a coaxial or composite (yellow video cable) and stereo (red-white) RCA audio cables to the VIDEO IN terminal on your VCR.
  3. From the VCR, you will have to connect this to the RF Modulator using a coaxial cable from the VIDEO OUT on the VCR to one of the IN ports on your RF modulator.
  4. You can now connect your DVD player to the RF Modulator by using the yellow-red-white composite/RCA cables from the VIDEO OUT on the DVD player to another port on the RF modulator.
  5. From the RF modulator, connect this unit to your TV by using a coaxial cable. It will be from the VIDEO OUT on the RF modulator to the VIDEO IN or CABLE or ANTENNA IN port on your television.
This should be all you need to get started watching your digital television. In simple terms here is what you did:
Coaxial from wall to cable box
Cable box to VCR
VCR to RF modulator
DVD player to RF Modulator
RF modulator to TV
You will only be able to record what is on channel

Hd tv to vcr


What model and manufacturer DVD/VCR combo are you using. if it has a HDMI port, you should buy a HDMI cable to your combo player than to your HDTV (most don't have this High Definition port.) 6f3606c.jpg
 otherwise, it probably contains a composite port, connect the red to the red (Left) white to white (mono) and yellow to yellow (Video) than connect the wires to the matching port on your HDTV) then switch the input to AV or Composite. 9701d83.jpgb5e3eb0.jpg


If this fails, you need a coaxial cable.85dec5e.jpgconnect a coaxial cable to your player then to the coaxial port on your tv. change the input to "either Coaxial, Cable 3 or any input that sets it to coaxial input.
