Please help! How to convert RF Coaxial to RCA?

 

Does anyone know of an adapter out there or a cable that allows the conversion of RF to RCA?
My 9" TV (for kitchen use) only has RCA Video/Audio inputs and I want to connect it to my cable jack. Here is the thing....I don't want to have to use a VCR to convert the cable signal into the TV. I know there has to be an adapter or cable that converts this signal....isn't there?
 

Derek
Doesn't the 9" TV have a cable/antenna jack? Does it have a tuner? You should be able to connect the TV to the cable box with a piece of coax. How do you watch TV? If it doesn't have a coaxial cable connector, that's a monitor not a TV...

I have the same question as above. I need to convert rf to rca without using the vcr. Reason is because I have a plasma and we all know there is no rf connector on plasmas. Is there such a converter or some kind of modulator out there.
 

Derek
You need a tuner. Any cheap cable tuner with S-Video will do. You could also use something like this http://www.viewsonic.com/products/video_box_nextvisionn6.htm.

Here is another product available at Amazon.com:
Monster Cable ConnectAll 200 S-Video RF Modulator

More options at Crutchfield.
 

Derek
Those are RF modulators - they convert line level A/V signals to RF. He's looking to convert RF to line level A/V.

He needs a tuner.

Thanks Derek, appreciate the help.
I ended up using a vcr for now and just amplifeid the rf signal before the vcr and the picture is not bad for cable, but I am definatly going to try viewsonic product soon.

Thanks again bud.

I have the same problem but I haven't bought this yet. Seems like it would work

Help...

I'd like to be able to use my mac speakers with my pc also...both are at my desk. Is there a connector I could get to do this?

Actually, Derek if you look closer at Crutchfield you'll notice the Terk VS-4MOD+.
This appears to have both an RF Coaxial Input and RCA Ouputs. The only RF Modulator I've ever seen that incorporates this.

Looks like you can get it cheap here:

Correction. I called Terk Tech support. They said that the rca outputs on the VS-4MOD+ will not output the coaxial input. They only output the RCA Inputs.

Looks like the following is the only thing that will work.

Anonymous,

The RF or coaxial cable contains both the audio and video signals. Appearently your TV isn't able to separate the audio and video on it's own.

As you may or may not know, an RF modulator converts the A/V signal, which is the 3 RCA cords, into RF which is the coaxial cable. If you just get an adapter as ed suggested, or you run it through the VCR what happens is that you aren't really converting the signal and you can experience these weird phasing in and out phenomenons on your TV. That's why you need the RF modulator.

I'm open to correction or further clarification from an expert.

The demodulator that you linked to in your previous post does look like it would work. It is 2 to 3 times the price of an RF modulator though. Why don't you save the money and get a better TV?

RF Modulators are a one way street. They go from A/V (RCA) to RF. If you want to go from RF to A/V, then your only option seems to be a demodulator.

I have a similar problem with my LCD projecter - no TV tuner. Can we not use a cable set top box, which may provide RCA (video and 2 audio wires) output? Anybody has a cable box like that, which takes Cable (RF/F) as input and output yello, red, white cables (one video and 2 audio)

Yes U can I don't know your location but I know that pioneer and motorola makes cable boxes. I've seen some for sale on ebay ( I don't know how they get them though).

I have a modern TV in our kitchen with component, composite, S-video, and standard coax inputs. My satellite receiver and all other electronics hub is in the living room. Although for our den I had the foresight to lay both component video and stereo audio wiring from the living room hub, I failed to so for the kitchen. Wiring from the hub to the kitchen is otherwise generous, however, consisting of: 2 RG6 coaxial cables, a 16-4 speaker cable that nicely brings speaker-level sound output from the receiver, and one still available CAT-5 run. I don't want to buy a second DirecTV receiver subscription, since we almost never need to have two different channels on at the same time. Wireless isn't an option. At present, I'm simply using the worst quality coax out from the satellite receiver in the living room and bringing this signal to the kitchen TV via one of the RG-6 cables. Is there a way to bring component video with good stereo to the kitchen TV by a modulation/demodulation or by some other means that wouldn't be too expensive? If not, what's the best way of getting a great S-video signal with good stereo to it?

hi,
I have a TV that does not have any s-video or audio inputs/outputs so i have to use a rf modulator to connect a dvd to my tv. Recently i bought a terk sv4 rf modulator and i was wondering how i could connect it to my tv which has a coaxial connector.
Also i want to be able to connect external speakers to my modulator.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hello,

I wanted to make sure I ran the right cables before sealing up the walls of a remodel. Took down a wall to make a combo kitchen/family room.

Where the wife wants the TV for family room viewing does not work well when seated at the kitchen table. I originally ran video & two cat-5e's to the main TV and also to two cabinets in the kitchen. Idea was could open a cabinet door or two & have a tv there in view for all around the kitchen table.

Contractor is about to put up the shear walls with tons of nails, so I'd like to get it right! A friend said I should run two videos to all possible TV locations, one for cable or antenna, one for future satellite, or to feed that tv from other sources, like a central DVD or TVO or whatever.

Also would like to watch same thing on all 3 tv's at times (like a sports bar... she'll love that, like the commercial!)

All wires originate out of a central closet.

The two cat-5e's were for phones & data, not necessarily related to tv, but who knows in the future.

Will I be able to plug in my video camera into the main tv, and pipe it to other TV's down the second coax cable, through the central closet?

How would I convert video/audio out (or component video out) to coax, and then back again at the second or third tv?

Thanks in advance. Much appreciative of any suggestions!

Hey,

This is a reply to Mike Mainiero's post. I'm probably a little too late, but this is a good tip to all who are remodeling or building and need to know. As to audio video cables and Cat 5 cables ... the more the marrier. Over kill with blank wall plates are very good options.

Now with the coax, remember some satellite receivers are dual tuners and need two (2) coax cables in to the receiver and another to feed out to the other tv. I am a satellite dish installer and have to run new lines all day long, even in newly remodeled homes because this was overlooked.

As far as converting cables into other cables, go to your local electronics store such as Best Buy or Circuit City. They will carry the majority of cable conversions or send you to the right place.

Take care all (i'll try to keep it shorter next time) noc

check your lcd screen manual and see what kind of connections you'll need. Some need a simple video input and some use parallel or serial cables.

i need help! i'm not sure if this is a simple problem and i'm just not knowledgeable on the subject or if it's really impossible:

i want to hook a dvd player up to my tv, which has nothing but a cable jack. i know i'm going to need an rf modulator for the dvd player, but i already have an rf switch in place for a nintendo system.

does anyone know if it will be possible for me to hook up this second rf mod in addition to the switch i'm already using? am i going to have to keep swtiching between two coaxial cables or something? please help!

My Box for my 30HDT20 (Hitachi) has A and B inputs for COAX. I've been using "A" for my digital cable and "B" for my VCR. I recently put an antenna on my roof, so I could get the HD signal without having to upgrade my Cable (I think I'll just get rid of it). I get really nice signals for a number of channels. The problem is, i would like to use the "B" for my antenna. Unfortunately, using a component connection for the VCR won't work. Do I need a tuner for this (I guess to convert the rf signal into a digital signal)?

Jeff, I have a 57wxw20b Hitachi. I talked with them today and I was told that antenna C is for antenna for local hd programming. They also said that antenna A and B can be used for a local antenna as well. These Hitachi's can get quite confussing. They are awesome TV's though. I think you should call 1800 hitachi and talk to them though. they call is free and so is the customer service tech support. Good luck. oh u may want to look into running your cable into your vcr and then using just one antenna for both components instead of the two. this will free up the other antenna that you are wanting to use.

I just bought a RCA combination rf modulator and switcher because the coaxial cable broke in my television and after taking the TV apart realized that it cannot come out. My problem is when I plug the modulator in the wall, the power light flashes for about a second and then nothing. Should I return it, or is there something I should do? Thanks for any help.

We have a Sony HDTV. Dish satellite HD receiver. VCR/DVD combo. We can watch VCR tapes and the DVD works fine also. The problem is we can't tape anything. We've had Dish people here twice and they told us it can't be done. Maybe with an RF modulator or RCA cables. We don't necessarily need to tape an HD program, just anything. Before we spend even more money on this system, we need to know just what to get. Any suggestions, anyone?

hi, i got a tv w/c the turner is busted so my only way to feed signals is thru rca input. if i buy a tuner and let someone install it would be more expensive than a new tv! if i buy a demodulator its also costly? does anybody got any cheaper way? thanks. best regards.

I have cable hookup to my living room. I have a ClearOne A/V trans/receiver http://www.clearone.com/product_service/product_detail.php?prodid=100 that I want to use to transmit the signal to my TV in the basement. Unfortunately the trans/receiver comes with RCA inputs and outputs. From all that I have read in this thread - it looks like I cannot connect my coax cable to the RCA inputs of the transmitter - other than by using a cannibalised RF demodulator - right? There isn't a simple (read cheap) adaptor? This thread has been certainly helpful.

I have about 8 gaming systems, I want to abuse the projectors in the classrooms at my college, they have 2 connectors in the wall up to the projector, one is the standard svga/vga D shaped plug, the other looks like an RCA video plug. On the projector itself(mounted to the ceiling) is some other ports, looks like the whole RCA set with sound for some reson... and some other deals. The gaming systesm I have connect to a tv normaly via either the 2 horseshoe shaped wires with screw combo and a cool beans computer/tv switch box, or via regular RF coax, like the stuff that comes out of the wall, and off the poles.

A demodulator package looks to be 100 US beans. I don't want to spend that. What steps are involved in translating the signals? I have access to a minicomputer with software configerable i/o ports and a vga port as well.

Looking for some help on connecting an old Sears VCR to a new DVD Recorder.I used the VCR as a reel-to-reel audio recording device (this model has the capability to insert any audio source replacing the audio received with the video signal-intended for Stereo simulcast sometimes available via radio.) I took it further and recorded much music from the radio 6 hours at a time with no regard to what the video content was-just had to have a signal to hold sync and maintain tape speed.
Now I am transfering audio tracks to DVD-6 hours at a time and would like to record the old video as well but this model of VCR doe not have a RCA video out but only rf out. What-where do I need to make this conversion from RF out to Line Composite In to connect to DVD recorder.
Thanks -

I have the same problem as many of you... trying to convert rf to an rca output. Your best bet is probably a cheap vcr. it should have both the rf input and rca output you are looking for. you should be able to pick one up for less than $50 anywhere

Hello,
I have two of these S-Video/RF modulator things and everytime I attempt to use the unit when power is supplied to the unit the power light goes on and then shuts right off, in other words the unit won't stay on, it just turns on an shuts right off? I had the unit working for some time, 2-3 months just fine then suddenly it started doing this. I found another one to test to see if it was the unit and its doing the same thing, this unit is also brand new purchased the same day.... The first unit was originally plugged straight into the wall, then into a surge protector would there but a power supply problem that caused both units to be fried?

Any insight and help would be appreciated
Thanks

Oh my bad, I didn't really think it would matter considering I wouldn't be able to get that far in the first place, but anyways.
Its connecting the TV-Out from the Computer *DVD Player* into the S-Video input on the RF Mod and using Coax lines into the older Magnavox TV, it worked flawlessly for the time it was working, then it just suddenly stopped staying on once power was turned on?

Since I wasn't able to edit before I realized I never registered duh...here is a little more info

Having the older TV i had never successfully been able to get the TV and the Computer to cooperatere. None of the generic Input devices have worked until this RF Modulator was discovered which required the power supply. The TV only has RCA inputs and the Coax inputs, and the S-Video/RCA adapter/converts never worked either, so the Modulator is the only was I have of getting the two units to talk to each other successfully.

I think your actually getting the point wrong here...
The problem has nothing to do with the two working together, that part has been established, the problem lies in the RF Modulator or something
The RF Modulator immediately turns on then off right after having power supplied to it. Whats being connected to the RF Modulator should have nothing to do with why its just turning off I would think?
But why would both of them be doing the exact same thing suddently when the one was just working perfecly fine, and the 2nd one is BRAND NEW? I have tried other outlets in the house/surge protectors, etc. etc. all with the same result

RF Modulator no red light problem solved: I had the same problem where the red light on the modulator would flash on for a second and then wouldn't work anymore. Being stubborn I switched cords and tried new plugs-finally tried plugging in everything into a surge protector and then turning everything on at once. (I also unplugged the red plugs the first time because the drawing on the instruction manual only had two cords plugged in. Don't think this made a difference)My TV automatically comes on when the power turns on. So if yours doesn't turn on the TV first. Nothing changed until I hit the power button on my DVD-only then did the modulator red light come on. Don't know why but it worked that way but it did.

I would love to hear options on RF to RCA as well. I have just purchased a 7" portable DVD player that will take AV input via RCA. I have cable (RF) run into the room where this device will be used. I would love to send a signal to it from my Dish Network Satellite receiver. But I don't want to have to run 40' of RCA cable to do it. If they make a demodulator I would be interested. Even a low cost tuner would work. But as it looks now I may have to spend $100 on this gadget..

Hi

I bought a NTSC LCD TV in USA. HOw do I use it in India which is PAL B. I understand that I can buy a NTSC-PAL Video converter, however it does not have any co-axial inputs. Almost all of them have A/V inputs, so that a VCR or DVD can be connected. But none have any socket for Antenna input. Please help.

 

Unregistered guest
Hi Kay M, older VCR has RF input and output and also input signal as PAL & output as NTSC. So, you can use VCR sold in India as PAL-NTSC converter.(Sorry friend, I am guessing and planning to do the same. Please update me if it works).
Alternative method: Use RF-RCA Converter(Antenna to RCA) and PAL-NTSC converter(RCA PAL to RCA NTSC).
Thanks,Durai

I have an old Atari 5200 video game system that has a cable out with one RCA on the end that plugs into a small "tv/computer" switch box, which then plugs into the coax connector on the back of my television. What I would like to do is bypass the "tv/computer" switch and connect the one RCA out to the three RCA in on my television set. That way I wouldn't have to keep switching the "box" just the AV/TV on my television remote. I have no idea what type of signal (perhaps RF) is coming out of the Atari unit but the "tv/computer" switch looks to be very simple on the inside. Does anyone know what type of "converter" or "switch" I would need to acomplish this? Your input would be greatly appreciated.
