Just hook up a vhs or dvd player from home that has tv outputs, but you would need a power inverter for the power supply of the vhs, then put the vhs audio and videos outputs to the dual's input: the auxiliars. make sure the vhs has channel changing.

Is it possiable to hook a ipod,iphone to the DUAL XDVD 700. AND LOOK AT VIDEOS. and can you get local tv on this unit.

You can hook an ipod touch/iphone up to this provided you have an ipod video out cable and your ipod supports video out. This will allow you to connect the RCA out from ipod/iphone to RCA video in on your receiver. You will not, however, be able to browse your iOS or ipod system through your receiver. This method will only output the video to the screen of the receiver.
As for local TV, it's all a matter of where you live and if this receiver has a built in tuner. If it does, it may only have an analogue tuner which will give you 1-125 channels of fuzz since everything has gone digital now. You may get a couple of channels, but barely visible.

Tv tuner

Hello,

Basically what I can see from what I have read one had dual tuner capability and one is set up for PCI Express. Both look like great cards.

Weak or no signal

you would need to know if the tuner is picking up analog signals in the air well( stick a wire a little bit in the tuner connection to see if channels pick up good or use an antenna , if so there should not be a problem with the cable being hooked up to it , if there is a problem even with an antenna then the tuner is bad and will need to be replaced , and the cable could have caused it to go out , but make sure that the tuner is working or not first.

Dual xdvd 8180

Hi,


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Offhand (without actually seeing the symptom/display) and initially, I would suspect that the unit is video muting. You could try checking the antenna input.

A notable point is, to my knowledge, the TV tuner on this particular model is not built-in. It is an external/add-on device, might you have to check up on this; is it present, is it connected correctly, does it receive power, does it get control signals from the DUAL XDVD-8180.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sony projection tv with dual tuners; only one tuner appears to be working now.

To verify that the tuner is the problem, move the cable from the second to the first. If you don't get a signal, the tuner is bad. The main tuner is part number 859843000 and is available for $47.38 from tritronicsinc.com

Screen just went black

Think your set tuner is bogus. The other tuner that you used should work, but if it is not a cable tuner configured to your system it will not work either via the rf outputs or the audio video outputs. If that cable box works with another set then you have a real head scratcher on your hands.

Dual xdvd710

If you can find a separate tv tuner with remote the run it through the unit rear input. But stand alone tuner is rare if it even exist. Search Ebay to see if you can find one. There is another way by hook up a small portable tv with video/audio output and use an adapter from RadioShack to send the signal to rear input of the unit, but picture and sound quality is only as good as the reception of the tv. Goodluck.
