Question

How do I connect the player to a TV that has a single coaxial input and no AV inputs?

Answer

In order to connect a DVD Player/Home Theater to a TV that only has an antenna or cable connection, you need to convert the video signal from the DVD Player/Home Theater to an RF signal that can be fed through an antenna or cable connection. You can convert the signal by means of a RF modulator. Such a connection is typical for all DVD Players/Home Theaters and a RF Modulator can be obtained at most dealers for a nominal fee. Use the composite video cable (yellow) to connect the DVD Player/Home Theater's Video Out (CVBS) jack to the video input jack on the RF modulator. 

  1. Use the composite video cable (yellow) to connect the DVD player’s TV OUT (CVBS) jack to the video input jack on the RF modulator. 
  2. Use the RF coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect ANTENNA OUT or TO TV jack on the RF modulator to the ANTENNA IN jack on the television
  3. To hear sound of this DVD player through your TV, use the audio cables (white/red) to connect AUDIO OUT (L/ R) jacks of the DVD player to the corresponding AUDIO IN jacks on the RF modulator (cable supplied). 
  4. Connect the Antenna or Cable TV service signal to the ANTENNA IN or RF IN jack on the RF modulator. (It may have been connected to your TV previously. Disconnect it from the TV)

Although there are minor differences in brands of RF modulators, the set up is basically the same for all brands.
