    hopefully you can help me.....i've just bought my son a dvd player but, what i didn't realise was the TV we're going to use it on doesn't have a scart socket. it only has the aerial input. i've been told we will need a rf modulator to get it to work.

    i was wondering where i could buy one and how much it will cost. i don't need anything fancy - the dvd player is only a basic model - but i want to get it working asap for him.

    this particular tv is currently used solely for his playstation 2 and i was going to add on the dvd player for him.

    thanks very much for your help

    sounds like the best solution. is the playstation 2's dvd player ok? i heard someone at work complaining that some of his dvds played in black and white. not quite sure what the outcome was but i reckon that must have been the thing which put me off. does that sound feasible to you?
    if it's a not a problem, then i'll do that and become dad of the year!
