    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.

There are no compatibility issues. In your BluRays HDMI audio settings set the audio out to PCM instead of bit stream.The TV cannot decode digital bit stream audio.

Connections


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!

I'm trying to hookup my Toshiba DR430KU to an older tv that require an RF Modulator. I get a skewded sideways picture. Does This DVDR compatable with a RF Modulator?


Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).

RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.

RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.

I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.

I can record a show manualy while its on & all is fine. When I try to schedule a recrding it records but I get a blank screen upon playback. What am I doing wrong? I have directv.


Unless the tv and dvdr are paired I.E. both the same make and compatible models, then you will have problems. try setting the timer on the dvdr for a programme but set the channel to av(scart connecter used) and set the timer on the tv to the same.
Please note that AV2 on the tv usually sends the programme to the dvdr.

I have a 8 mm camera connected to the front inputs I have the Insignia plugged in and av2 mode i have a dvdr in the machine I simply hit the record button and nothing happens? I just want to plug my camera...


can't do it that way. you'll need to plug it in to the tv, play it on the tv, and the video output from the tv to the dvd player. make sure you have the correct format of the dvds for that player. some formats of dvds does not work for certain dvd recorders.

let me know what other issues you have

Try to set your video output settings on your dvd player . I assume you used to connect to your old tv by using svideo and now you are using another connection like component, scart or hdmi.If the video output setttings on your dvd are still on svideo you will have to set it to rgb or component or else you will get black and white images..

Only black and white


If you are playing different region dvds, they can be of different color formats also
(US = NTSC, Europe = PAL). If your television is not multi-format then non-compatible
DVDs will play black and white. The solution is to purchase a mutli-format TV (accepts
both PAL and NTSC formats)

I have a Philips Model DVDR 3505/37 recorder. I recently hooked up a RCA analog to digital converter to the TV and to the DVD. Now it will not record. No error messages. Just no recording. Thanks


The Philips DVDR 3505/37 has a built-in analog to Digital converter. No additional converter is needed. Just do the scan for over the air channels and set to go. Works fine now.
