1990 tv


I have a TV from 1990 and it works great.
I also have an older DVD player that I'm wanting to connect to it.

I only have rg56/59 connector on the TV, and a rca plug marked coax on the DVD player.

I have found an adapter to connect the two, but was wondering if it will work.
The cost is next to nothing, but I don't want to invest the time if it will not work!

Here's another one. More likely the one one I want since I have the rca cable!

$2 for the part, $10 for shipping!!

I think there might still be a radio shack around here still.

Re: 1990 tv


Look on e-bay for one of those adaptors, often you can get FREE shipping, which is a plus.

I thought that Radio Shack went out of business nationwide, or maybe it was just both my local stores.

I know where it used to be, but haven't gone that way in a while.

Re: 1990 tv


Won't work. You need an rf modulator.

Local discount electronic stores might have done laying around.

Cheers!

Re: 1990 tv


I don't ever recall a single RCA output that did audio and video on the same port.

I just looked at two older DVD players that I have here and the RCA ports are:
composite video
Left audio
right audio
digital out (that may be a combo but not an analog signal)
and the other single color streams.

Posting a closeup picture of the output jacks may help one of us help you better. The model number and brand of the player might find an online manual to answer the question.

FYI:

composite video = analogue video. (everything required to transit just video, colours are not separated) Usually encoded to NTSC, PAL, or SECAM

Coaxial "cable TV" = many composite video/audio streams broadcast on different "channels." Because of some technical/jurisdictional reasons, it's possible to fit many channels onto a single cable, verses Over the Air broadcasting. (Digital OTA is attempting to solve this difference.)

Left/right audio (the typical rca arrangement) = analogue audio split between 2 channels. (they are often exactly the same, but a slight 3D effect is replicated when recorded properly.)

digital out = typically S/PDIF digital audio. This can be coaxial (RCA plug) or fiber (TOSLINK) This supports multiple channels, instead of just 2.

and the other single color streams = component video. It separates the color channels, while mixing sync on Y. This results in less modulation/demodulation losses. Y is the brightness or luminance. The other 2 are the difference from Y in Blue and Red. (Electrical math) Green is derived from the 3.

HDMI. (wanted to include it for completeness.) = digital audio AND video. It also includes digital rights management (DRM, HDCP), Consumer Electronics Control (CEC), and basic IC digital communications. As of version 1.4, Ethernet digital communication. This also supports multiple audio channels. (up to 8 at this time, but anything more then 2 is optional on the device end.) In all, basically a huge step up from the other standards, at the cost of more expensive cabling.

Re: 1990 tv


Go to 2nd hand stores. They are almost giving away old TV's which have RCA connections. Be sure to get one with a remote.

And you can find them for free on craigslist.org.

I'm not wanting to keep the tv, but to sell them both in a yard sale for 10 or 15 dollars.

Re: 1990 tv


Yup..... RF modulator or new TV.

If you have an old VCR laying around, you could use that as the RF modulator.... {chuckles to self, reminiscing..}

Cheers!
