    Hi,

    Not sure if this is the place to answer the question but been having problems. Not getting the signal out from my dvd/vhs combi unit from the RF out to get my splitter to feed TV via the RF normal aerial cable.

    I have the set up as follows: see link

    Assumed then that the RF cable run from my RF out to the splitter but nothing.

    ANy help appreciated.

    1) Your splitter (assuming it's a normal passive one) will lose you half your signal (3dB).
    Does it work going direct (like the diagram) i.e. without any splitter in line to add to your losses ?


    2) Could there be a menu to enable the RF out (UHF modulator) to work ?

    3) Have you tuned the output to a channel that the TV can see ?

    There should be a switch or menu control to generate a test signal to assist you, usually giving vertical black/white bars.
    It may be marked TSG (test signal generator).

    hi Chris,

    hmmmm I have to admit I had not retuned the TV for the RF signal from the video recorder/DVD. Had previously been sending out to the other television via the additional RF out on the satellite different frequency!!!!

    All is working well many thanks for your thorough reply



    regards

    Alan.
