How to hookup TV

If you have a TV with only a single coax input and you want to hook up components like DVD players and VCRs, here's how to do it.

The RF modulator takes the 3 RCA cables (yellow, white, red) and converts to a single coaxial cable connection for the TV. RF modulators with several RCA inputs allow you to switch to the component you want.

What you need to connect your DVD player or game players to a TV that only has a VHF/UHF 75-ohm F-connector ("coax antenna input"). 

1.) RF Modulator with Stereo Audio Inputs.

2.) 6 foot long coaxial cable with male "F" connectors. This cable goes from the modulator to the TV. The modulator also has a coaxial input to plug in your antenna or your VCR.

3.) 6 foot long Video and Audio Cables with "RCA" plugs. The cables connect the yellow, red and white outputs from your DVD or game player to the yellow, red and white inputs of the modulator.

Works with X-Box, PlayStation, Nintendo or other devices that output audio/video via the RCA plugs and you want to connect them to your coaxial only TV.

Hooking up your RF modulator/video switch box

First, plug your cable TV/VCR output into the cable input connection (ANT IN) of the RF modulator and then the Video game/camcorder/DVD player's 3 RCA A/V cables (yellow, red, white) into the RF modulator's A/V inputs (yellow, red, white).

Second, connect a standard RF coax cable from the RF modulator OUT (TO TV) to your TV antenna/VHF IN jack.

Third, select either channel 3 or 4 output on the back of the RF modulator. This is a two position switch.

Fourth, turn the TV on and the RF modulator will automatically detect your cable input for the TV. When you want to watch your DVD player, just put the TV on channel 3 or 4, whichever one you selected on the RF mod box, turn the DVD player on and the RF modulator will automatically detect the DVD player and will display your movie.

Lets you connect components with  composite video output (i.e., DVD player, satellite box), to a TV without A/V jacks, by modulating the signal to RF. Good for hooking up several components to an older TV.

Review: I have a DVD player, VCR, cable and satellite dish all hooked up to this box and then going to my television. Simple switch of the button and I get what I want. Very easy to use. There is even a handy set of jacks in the front to hook up a video camera.
