    I've noticed that many DVD/VCR combination units have an RF input and output on them. Can these units be connected to an older TV, that only have the F-type connector input, and have the video and DVD work without messing with RF modulators and coax switch boxes, etc..? Do these units, with the RF output, have the RF modulator in them?

    I'm wondering because my girlfriend is considering a DVD player with her old TV and by the time she buys the RF modulator and the coax switch box, she's throwing away, at least, $60 on connectors. This way, when she gets a better TV she can simply use the other connections to take advantage of the higher resolution and not have wasted money on extra connectors/modulators.

    Anyone know or have any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Jon

    Yes, the DVD and VCR will both output through the RF. Some brands may vary, so always doublecheck to be sure. I've not seen one that doesn't though. DVD through RF will be low quality, and look about the same as a good VHS will.
