Hooking Up a VCR and DVD to a TV with One Cable PlugHook the incoming cable from either the antenna, satellite, or cable system to the VCR. From there go to the DVD player, and then to the TV. AnswerIt sounds like you're trying to hook AV awesome cables from your DVD player to your TV which only has an AC input. If this is the case, try using an AC cable (ordinary antenna cable) to connect your VCR to your TV by plugging one end into the output the other to your TV. (There are typically two AC plugs on a VCR, one is input the other output.) Look on your VCR for AV input. These are plugs that are red, white and yellow. Some VCR's only have white and yellow. There should be three, or six plugs (two, or four if you have a mono VCR) Plug the Yellow chord into the yellow input socket, and be sure it's not plugged into the output socket. Do likewise with the White chord, and if you have a red plug do the same. There should be simalar atachments on your DVD player. Be sure to plug the chords into the sockets marked output on the DVD player. In order to watch a DVD, you will need to turn your TV to channel 3, or 4, and set your VCR to its video monitoring setting. This varies with each VCR. Usally there is a button on the remote that Says VIDEO. Other times it is a channel number (I've seen 91, 00, 100).

If you want to watch TV, plug the tv cable into the VCR's input(usally right next to the output).

If you still have trouble, I would suggest, plugging everything in and out and play with it until you have a picture. And, if you're VCR doesn't have AV input, you can buy a converter at your electronics provider. Ask the geek behind the counter for an AV to AC converter.

You can route other things such as your cable through the DVD player, or you can buy a splitter, whichs connects more than one object on one side and the other side plugs into your TV.

Actually, Blu-Rays can only hook up to HDTVs by using an HDMI cable

the remote wire only needs a power source for the amp to turn on, so if u have a looped cable running from the remote input on the amp to the front of the car with a switch and then back to the power cable on the amp u can control when the amp is on just by turning the switch on or off. otherwise u will have to figure out which cable on the back of the stereo is switched power, or which cable only supplies power when the car is running. and that would require a wiring diagram.

No. You do not have to buy a Samsung brand cable to hook up to the Blu Ray player. All cables seem to be the same and brand name cables only cost you more.

as long as cable has enough length and both ends can be attached the 3 speed cable will hook up to a 4 speed the cable is only a linkage and has nothing to do with how many speeds your transmission has

You have to buy a box that converts the signal from the DVD player into an RF signal. These can be found in the electronics department of most stores, or at Radio Shack.

The iDog just uses a standard headphone jack cable. Idogs come w/ a cable, and you hook the end w/ only one thing into a place I think near it's right back leg, and you hook the other end (not the flat, the one with a thing sticking out) to your I-Pod. Happy listening!

No you only need one that works. I prefer a name brand, but that is not a requirement. The main thing you need is one long enough to reach from the back of the PS3 to the back of an HDTV.

No. Blu-Ray players require an HDMI cable to hook up to a TV and only HDTVs accept HDMI cables

because only certain cable modem is approved by isp and wasโ€™nt wireless.

The only way to hook it up is to have a video card that has a coax input port. You will also have to have a converter to connect the 360 Cable and the coax cable too.

You can only hook it up to that type of player if they have a USB output on them

The only cable that connects a Blu-Ray player to an HDTV is an HDMI cable

Connect the coax cable from the game to the antenna in on the back of the TV set after disconnecting the cable that is currently hooked there. Turn the game on and change the channel selector to channel 3 or 4. If you would like both connected to the TV a the same time to avoid having to make this cable swap every time , you need a RF CABLE SWITCH also know as a A-B SWITCH.

Yes you can, you can setup any router or wireless access point to any Cable or DSL modem depending how many cat5/6 ports are on the back of you modem. If you only have one port you can connect both routers together

you grab a battery and a jumper cable. Hook the black end up to your genitalia the other you hook up directly the monitor. Only then will you experience true High Definition.

Call your local cable company and say you would like to subscribe to there service. They will hook you up outside. It is either up to you to run cabling inside for hookup or you can have the cable provider do it for an extra fee. Run at least RG6 or RG6 quad coaxial cable inside with compression fittings only. Do not use crimp or screw on types as they tend to degrade and cause signal loss. If you are not that handy then have the cable company do it for you.

There is no way to hook a LCD to a router. The router is only made for "network" traffic. It's way different then the signals needed for the LCD. You only connect the ethernet cable from the computer to the router.

a modem takes cable input and output goes to only 1 Ethernet cable. A router takes the 1 Ethernet cable and makes it so that you can hook up four or five Ethernet cables. a wireless router allows you to hook up 4 or 5 Ethernet cables and unlimited amounts of wireless receivers. If you only have 1 computer, you don't need a router. You only need 1 Ethernet cable. To put it in simple terms : Yes, many newer external modems have full router and firewall functionality built-in to a single device

You will have to use RCA jacks for your VCR.In general you'll want to hook it up to an auxillary channel.The reason is that your VCR is only going to give you standard definition and you'll want to hook your HD TV up directly to an HD Sources.
