Most DVD players have a coax input and output on them. But some newer ones don't. Assuming your does then you can run your DVD player to your TV with a coax cable you bet. Either on the back of the DVD player there will be a little switch or in the menu settings it will give you an option for channel 3 or channel 4. The same channel you select on the DVD player will be the same channel you will want to put your TV on. For the coax install run it from the output on your DVD player to the coax input on your TV. If you use a coax for cable too then just run you coax from the output on your cable box to the input on your DVD player.

I was able to connect a dvd player to old tv with a rf modulator.now is there a way to hook up a vcr on same rf modulator so as not to change connections each time you want to watch the vcr with instead of...


well...the reason its sooo hard is that this modulator is not intended for this use. its used for BIG jobs. you can normally do what you want with a simple rf modulator you buy at walmart or radio shack as it has a cable in and cable out, but

You dont even need a rf modulator.
The VCR can do it for free simply; hook the yellow , white if your vcr has red as well (depending on how old )...BOTH or all Three color to color from VCR(INPUT) to DVD
then use a piece of coax cable from the vcr out to tv.

test vcr by making sure that it work on either channel 3 - or 4 on tv. (leave VCR on)

Then to test your DVD connection first turn DVD player on.;.Then on front of VCR press channel down ON VCR until it says L1 or L2 this is under channel 2 when channel downing.

you should now see the dvd player on screen on either L1 or L2 depending on vcr.

now buy doing this your vcr must be on the L1 (L2) anytime you watch a dvd but when you want to watch a tape you just put it in and press play since TV itself is never changed.
when you want to go back to dvd,...stop tape and should still be right on the L1 or L2 again.

If the cable box needs to be set to 4, the TV will need to be set to 4 as well as the dvd player. The hookup should be cable box to dvd player to the TV for your system to work. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

I lost the manual to the magnavox dvd/vcr dual player so i dont know how to set it up. so i can watch dvds and vcr tapes.


The easiest way to hook up the combo is to use the cable in and out to tv connectors located in the rear. for this connection you will hgave to set the TV to Channel 3 or 4. You can usually download an owners manual from magnavox.com, you will need a model number.

Can't get dvd player to work on this tv!!!


im guessing that you cant go to av mode because you dont have a remote, am I right? if thats the case you need to go to walmart and buy an RF converter. You can plug you dvd into the converter, then run a coax cable from the converter to your tv coax inout aka anteanna input, then depending on your converter switch your tv to either channel 3 or 4 and presto. it will hook up just like vcr's and onld nintendos use to. You can pick up an RF converter cheap at walmart or check e-bay, couple bucks and your watching dvds.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

Can't find a channel to watch a DVD pre-recorded DVD


you should have a input select button on your remote. video 1 should be the front and video 2 should be the back. i had to buy 3 or 4 different universal remotes when mine messed up just to get the one button to change to change it to the inputs because there is no other way to change it to that with he buttons on the tv. kinda surprised that you didn't try and push that button yet.
