Jensen RF modulator

I picked up a channel cable box from Charter last night. I have a older TV
and have a Jensen RF modulator. I am trying to figure out how to hook up
my TV/RF Modulator, Symphonic VCR player and the new cable box (motorola brand). Charter did not give me a box in how to hook up.
Thanks
Dawn

SOURCE: Connecting DVD Player to tv with RF Modulator

Well this could be a loaded question but what type of cables you using?? are there a red one a white one and a red one?? Ok then the yellow one goes to the video output on the DVD player and the other end goes to the video input of the tv. The red white cables are your right and left audio cables and red goes to red and white goes to white on the tv as well as on the DVD NOW make sure the cable on the dvd player are on the output!!!!!! Good Luck

Hi If I'm understanding what you have written, the new DVD should hook up exactly the same way your old one did. You connect the red and white cable from the "Audio out" connectors on your new DVD to the "Audio In" connectors on the RF modulator, then connect the Svideo out on the DVD to the Svideo connector on the RF modulator. Then put your TV on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the switch on the modulator is set to, and all should work fine. I would advise you hook your old one back up, then if it works, simply unplug the cables from you old DVD and plug them into the proper jacks on the new one. This eliminates bad cables. If you then get sound, but no picture, the DVD may be set to progressive scan (check manual for procedure take it out of that mode),If you get nothing, then I suspect there is a problem with the new DVD player. The TV/VIDEO switch they mention, would be a switch on the TV or TV remote if you had a newer TV with RCA inputs.....You don't, so disregard that, it does not apply to your TV. You would not need the RF modulator if your TV had that switch. Good Luck!...These things can be a pain, I hope this helps!

SOURCE: RF Modulator

The RF modulator changes the outputs from RCA (red, white, and yellow) to a Coaxial Cable (COAX).

You connect the DVD players RCA outputs to the RCA Inputs on the RF Modulator, then connect the COAX Output from the RF Modulator to the television.




Best of Luck.

SOURCE: installing DVD player/RF Modulator with Star Choice

The RF modulator probably had a red, white, yellow trio of RCA jacks (A/V jacks), a coax jack marked "antenna" and another coax jack marked "TV"

Putting the DVD output to the A/V jacks allowed it to play out to the TV, which couldn't otherwise accept the DVD player.

The satellite box probably has coax and a/v jacks as output. Use the coax as output to the antenna input of the RF modulator, and the A/V jacks of the DVD player to the A/V jacks of the RF modulator. Hopefully the modulator allows the A/V jacks to have priority over the coax input, so that when the DVD plays it "wins"

RF Modulators and cable connections

RF MODULATOR HOOKUP
For a TV with only a RF input jack, a RF Modulator can be used to hookup DVD players, DVD recorders and other devices which output RCA composite video and audio. For example, analog cable TV can be connected using a RG-6 type coaxial cable to a VCR or older DVD recorder's analog cable ready tuner RF input. Then as shown above, the output can be connected to the TV thru the RF modulator. The modulator outputs on channel 3 or 4 for the older TV so the TV is set to channel 3 or 4. Some RF modulators are built-in to Audio/Video switch boxes. These allow multiple RCA inputs along with RF input.

RF MODULATOR CLOSE-UP
The modulator converts signals to channel 3 or 4 so older TVs can tune them on their analog tuners channel 3 or 4.

Because your TV is an older one, it might not have, what they call RCA inputs (the 3 colored cable) Red-audio right, White-audio left, Yellow-video. If I understand you.

You do have the option of using the 75-ohm coaxial cable inputs. Signal comes in from outside to the 722k, Output of the 722k to the 75ohm coax input on the back of the TV. Tune your TV to ch. 3 or 4. Make sure the switch on the back of the 722k is set to the same.

If you really want to use the RCA colored cables, then you need to buy an RF modulator, which integrates older tv's to newer products. But usually dvd players, not necessarily cable boxes, but it would work if hooked up correctly.

You plug the RCA red, white and yellow from the 722k, into the rf modulator, choose channel 3 or 4 on the modulator

Connect 75ohm coax cable from rf modulator to TV 75ohm coax cable input. Choose channel 3 or 4 on the TV.

Hope this helps.

Receiving no signal with converter box


Where is the "no signal" coming from, the converter box or tv? If tv then unplug the dvd player and plug the plugs into the converter so the wires go from the converter into the rf modulator. set the tv up to watch dvds and try your channel scan gain. If it works then post again and we'll figure out the best way to connect the converter and dvd to the tv.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    I have separate dvd player and vcr, how do I hook coverter box up


    It took some time, but I finally have this figured it out so everything works.

    I have the same setup, but I had one additional piece to the puzzle that I had to figure out. I have an older TV and use and antenna, but had to buy an Audio/Video RF Modulator a couple of years ago to use my VCR & DVD player with the old setup.

    Get yourself an Audio/Vido RF Modulator (you can pick one up for about $20-30).
    Connect the TV to the RF Modulator.
    You should have 2 connectors for your antenna. Connect one to the converter "To Ant" and the other to the RF Modulator.
    Connect the convertor A/V cable to "IN" on your VCR.
    Connect the cable from converter "To TV (RF)" to "UHF/VHF from Ant" on VCR.
    Connect the VCR "OUT" cable to the RF Modulator.
    Connect DVD A/V cables to A/V input on VCR.

    Your TV should be set to Channel 3 (or 4, depending on your setup) and depending on your "input" connections, you should be able to view vidoes from VCR like this and DVD by changing the input (the button should be on your VCR or other remote). For ex. my input changes on my VCR from channels, to L1 & L2. My converter & VCR play on L1 and DVD's play when I change it to L2.

    Now, I just have to figure out how to add the converter box to my universal remote. :)
    Good luck!

    Connecting older model quasar to dvd/vcr player (magnavox)


    Hi and welcome to FixYa,

    Initially, the only reason you would need/use a modulator is when the DVD/VCR has no RF OUT and the Quasar TV has no Audio/Video IN. If this were the case, then connections would be:
    • yellow Video Out of DVD/VCD to yellow Video IN of modulator;
    • red/white Audio Out of DVD/VCR to red/white Audio In of modulator;
    efa3894.jpg
    • modulator RF Out to RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar;
    • TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4;
    • if Modulator has no RF OUT but instead has a small antenna, still the TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4.
    If however, the DVD/VCR has an RF OUT, then a coaxial patch cord from this could be connected to the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar. The TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4. There would be no need for the modulator.

    If you hooked up the satelite box to your tv Automaticly the Satelite box is the one who pick up the channels (from the satelite)
    In this case your tv is acting as a monitor only. Try to connect your tv with HDMI cable or COMPONENT cable for best picture. Don't use RF antenna input to hook up your Satelite Box. Hope this Helps

    How to hook up portable dvd player to watch on t.v.


    You can use the VCRs video in and audio in to view the DVD player. The VCR will act as the RF modulator. You may have to select the TV/VCR button to select the input. (Sometimes line in or Below channel 2 is the L1 L2 input) The VCR has a built in RF modulator.
