Question by  TamanduaGirl (77)

How do you hook up an rf modulator to the tv and the cable box?

I have an older dvd player that I need to connect to the tv and cable box.

Simply connect your cable coming from the TV to the appropriate outlet on the RF Modulator. Then hook the AV (red, white and yellow) cables to the appropriate outlets on the other side of the RF Modulator. All that is left is to select channel 3 or 4 on the RF Modulator, tune the TV to the selected channel, enjoy!

You need a couple pieces of coax cable long enough to reach what you need. One cable needs to hook the RF modulator to the tv. The cable from the wall needs to run to the RF modulator. Take another piece of coax cable and run this one from the RF modulator to the cable box.

Almost any store will carry some kind adaptor for both sides. Try taking a picture of the connections with your cell phone to show them at the store.

You might need to get a converter, You should plug the cable box into the dvd player and the player into the tv. Leave the dvd player on as well

You will hook the cable box to the television as normal, through the coaxial cable, and then you will hook the DVD player to the RF connectors. When you want to watch cable, you will have to have the T. V. on channel three, but when you want to watch a DVD, you will turn the T. V. to Auxiliary or something.

Available for purchase at electronics stores and home improvement stores are converter boxes which will take your RF coaxial plug, insert it in to the input of the box, and allow you to output the signal as either an RCA (three plug cable)or svid connection. An HDTV version also exists for connection to very new sets.
