Question about Televison & Video
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.
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.

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"
