I just got direct tv installed today and I don't have any A/V hook ups on my tv. So I was going to just use the A/V hook up on the direct tv to hook up my dvd player. Can I do this? I tried and coudln't get it to work. If I can do this what channle does the direct tv need to be on to see whats hooked up to its a/v jacks?
Go from your dtv reciever to tv with coax. Put the tv on channel 3 or 4 or what ever you watch the dvd on it will work. But that way you must have your dvd on to watch tv ok.
Or buy for $15 an RF modulator at walgreens..and use it between the satellite receiver and DVD to TV...the modulator has both the RF coax cable and the yellow/red AV capabilities...then U can watch TV without the DVD on..
Actually RGg6 coax cable from roof Dish into satellite receiver-out to IN on RF modulator and then OUT to TV
AV (yellow/white/red)hookup from DVD (progressive scan switch OFF) to RF modulator
RF modulator..channel 4 TV ...channel 4 satellite receiver..channel 4
