Frankei: Do you mean you don't have any inputs for the DVD player on your TV?



Or that you do have the inputs on the TV but you also want to take the audio out of the TV and into a Stereo?



If you mean you don't have any inputs on your TV for a DVD player than what you need is a "RF Modulator"

It has a Yellow and a White connector (only gives you mono sound) and you run the aerial from your wall to the VCR (if you have one) then from the VCR to the RF Modulator and from the RF Modulator to the TV. Then you simply tune your TV on an empty channel to the RF Modulator like you would with a VCR.



DSE Cat# G1507 $77.32 Available from most stores but just call your nearest store and quote the Cat# so those [profanity removed] can find it easily


I do believe I said in my first message there are NO and i repeat NO plugs on the back of my tv apart from the aerial plug and the SCART plug which we later found.
I don't have a VCR to do any of that stuff you said, so that puts a line thru that.

This is unbelievable. There must be thousands of people out there with my problem. There must be an adapter that has the outputs (yellow white and red or black or whatever bloody colours they are) so you can work your DVD! And that you don't need a VCR to do so.

Please Re-read my post

You plug the yellow and white from the DVD into the RF modulator; you plug your aerial into it as well and then you plug it into your TV via the aerial plug.........

If you read my previous posts and miss_louies posts you will see that the TV simply requires a SCART to composite/svid adaptor to get AV inputs working, a $20 work around.

Further if you read my previous posts you will see I mention that the option of using a VCR with a DVD player is not always an option, as unless you can turn off the macrovision on the DVD player (not all can be moded) then most, but not all, VCR's will provide unwatchable pictures.

miss_louie, I trust you have sorted you lack of AV inputs with above said SCART adaptor.

miss_louie,

  Cyril is spot on ... go to Dick Smith and ask for Catalogue number P6675 (SCART Plug - RCA/S-VHS Socket Adaptor).

The SCART bit goes into your TV, and the 3 wires from your DVD player go into the adapetr, viz. one for video picture and the other two for sound.

R.

PS  Catalogue numbers P6676 and P6699 are similar products just different brands ... all around the $20 mark.

Help!

Mclayma so generously sent me his adapter, that isn't a SCART, just a box with plugs in it. It has space for the yellow and white plugs but nowhere for the red one? I'm tearing my hair out :(
Does anyone know the said adapter I'm talking about (mclayma has mentioned in previous posts) or how to use it??
Cheers

You describe it as a box but I presume you mean that it is a SCART connector with a yellow and white RCA on it. It has only a white jack (Left Channel) as it will only support mono sound, if your TV has stereo inputs via SCART then the one I mentioned earlier at Dick Smith will support that. If you TV only supports one mono channel then the SCART adaptor you have been given is all you need.

That said due to the nature of the auido on most DVD's most folk prefer to connect the from the DVD (white and Red jacks) to a spare input on their stereo and have superiour sound from their HiFi system, in that case you only require to connect the yellow video jack between the DVD and TV.

The SCART adaptor you are looking for should be simlar to this SCART_ADAPTOR

Can I just say - If you want to comment on this topic I suggest you have a lot of patience.

Cyril - thanks for your reply. It is not a SCART connector. It is an adapter with the aerial plug and only the white and yellow plugs. The other red plug has nowhere to go, and I can't get anything to work (DVD wise).
My TV has NO inputs or outputs. The only plug on the whole tv is a hole where the SCART can go, and the aerial plug.

I don't have a stereo to connect it to, i'm only connecting my DVD, to my TV, so i can watch DVD. I don't have a stereo, I don't have a VCR.

If you are getting frustrated with my lack of knowledge please PM me for my MSN addy if it will be easier to explain or talk to me via there.
Cheers again

Hi, regardless of what you have been sent the item you require is detailed earlier in this thread. It would assist if you told me what TV you have, both make and model.
