    I already have the manual. What I don't have are sufficient input/output jacks on either TV or VCR,.

    Basti: To me, components are TV/VCR/DVDR. What are HDMI & composite cables? My problem is not enough jacks -- the DVDR plays nicely through the VCR inputs, but I have no place to put the DVDR inputs so it can record from VCR or TV. DVDR has an HDTV tuner, but I have no additional antenna for it -- the VCR is connected to my only antenna, and I don't have cable. Suggestions? Thanks! EACIII

Question: Connect a digital cable box, VCR and DVD player to a TV
How do I connect a digital cable box, VCR and DVD player to a TV that does not have AV inputs for the DVD player?
Answer: 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 three because the digital cable will require you be on channel three. As long as it is connected to the television and the TV is on channel three, you will be able to see your video signal.

Hi-

Just check the available ports for both devices, go for components, composite or HDMI cables if it supports your product for better quality on video and sounds.

Keep us posted....

    Hi-

    i think that's going to be a problem since there are no available jack for your DVDR to TV if you have the VCR connected , i recommend buying a switch box or a splitter so that you can plug both devices at the same time to your TV.

I believe that you simply need a splitter from your cable line from the wall to the items that need it.

That will give you input to the DVD-R and to the Cable box.

Let me know if we need to discuss further, I will be glad to help!

To Connect AV Cable from Panasonic VCR to Sony 29 inches


You can either connect the antenna output of the VCR to TV ant in or hookup the audio/video outputs from VCR to audio/video TV inputs. If using the antenna output you need to sellect channel 3 or 4 to view VCR. If using the adio/video lines you need to select the line input on TV to view VCR.

TV, Sky, DVDR, VCR + Wii connection


i cant see any problem with the connections. have you tried to connect the dvdr along with sky to another tv set? and did the same problem occured? if not, try connecting it the same way with another tv. and see if thesame problem would occur. if the same problem appears check if the connections from sky to dvdr scart if it is loose or not. try to clean the solid wire of the cable. if proble still persists dvdr is faulty. if not, defenitely there is a problem with the tv. and i suggest for you to have it checked.
