    Hello..

    I am new to HT set up so need some help. I have a A/V receiver which I am trying to use for building HT with a DVD player, a VCR and TV. My receiver has ability to connect with component a/v cables (so does the DVD player and VCR). So I am planning to use those cables.

    My problem is my TV is from 1800s [​IMG] [​IMG] and has only one input which takes cable box type coneection. What I am mean by that is TV has only one input with wire that comes out from cable box or your cable connection from the wall.

    What are my options? I wish to connect all my AV components (TV,DVD,VCR) thru A/V receiver. Can I buy some sort of convertor or adapter which can take component cable and on the other side output will be normal cable wire?

    I hope my question make sense...

    Thanks in advance.

    While buying a new tv would solve the problem. A cheaper solution would be this.RF modulator
    You may find one cheaper some where else but that's what your looking for.

    It's cheaper but picture quality will be really bad. The F-connection is the worst type of connection for video and/or audio. But at least the modulator will help get things working for you.
