HELP PLEASE WITH DVD VCR SETUP WITH CABLE BOX

Hi! I really need some help with getting my dvd and vcr combination player set up with my comcast cable box. I have an old Magnavox tv that doesn't have any audio out or video out hookups. It looks like I will have to hook up the Magnavox dvd vcr combination player to the comcast cable box. However, when I turn the combination player on I have no picture on the tv. I don't know what to do to get the picture to show up. I tried to program the remote, but that still didn't make a picture appear! Please help me!!!

Re: HELP PLEASE WITH DVD VCR SETUP WITH CABLE BOX

Try this

Coax from wall into Cable Box IN

Coax from Cable Box out to DVD/VCR Coax In

Coax from DVD/VCR out to TV coax IN

 

Set both the tv and DVD/VCR to channel 3 (may need to try Channel 4 also) and never change those channels to view tv channels.

 

Use the cable box to change channels. To view the DVD/VCR use the DVD or TV remote TV/VCR button to use the DVD for playback. Make sure it is set for TV to view channels using the cable box
