I already have my VCR hooked up to my stereo system and tv (which is a circa 1992 CRT with just a coax connection). I want to hook my DVD player into the system. The problem is that the connections on the back of the DVD player are just RCA, and like I said, the TV is just coax.
Is there a way to run the DVD player through the VCR, using the VCR's patch into the TV?
I have an RF box, so hopefully, I'm part of the way there.
I want both VCR (cheaper movies) and DVD (movies after 2004).
If your DVD has composite video (yellow) and audio outputs you can connect it to the VCR AV inputs. When you want to watch a DVD select that on the VCR and it will play through onto the TV. You are using the RF modulator in the VCR. No adapters needed.
I have the RF box, Mr., I just don't know how to hook it up. Can you explain the connections?
american: I need to know exactly what the connection procedure is. The back of my DVD has two RCA jacks for Analog Video out (R&L), one RCA jack for Video Out, one S Video Out, and two RCA jacks for
Component Video Out. My VCR has RCA Jacks for Audio and Video (in & out). My RF box has one RCA jack for (input) Video and two RCA jacks for Audio (R&L). Thanks to both of you for replying, it's just that I am out-to-lunch on this and need to know what the set-up is.
You can probably use your VCR as intermediate between DVD and TV (although you won't be able to record DVDs). Try connecting DVD red/white/yellow to VCR red/white/relloy' inputs, and switch the VCR into that input.
