HELLO EVERYONE, I have a vcr in the MH and I would like to take it out and install a combo cd /vcr player. which I tried to today, but the vcr only had 2 coax cable running to it plus the power cord, now there is a box that sits on top of the vcr where many wires go into. The combo player only has one connection for the coax cable plus many connections for wiring up a SR sound. any suggestion? thanks in advance

Another option is a 'RF modulator'. You plug the audio and video out from the VCR/DVD into this gadget, and the output is RF into your selector switch. Getting hard to find these; I found a nice, small one at Best Buy.

Thanks 730, I will see if I can pick one when I go into Monday. I don't like to go into town that much rather stay in the country if you know what I mean. Hollis

No they don't, that was the first place I looked. Best Buy was where I got mine; I've since seen them other places (don't know where exactly, but likely 1 or more of Home Depot, Lowes, Wal Mart or Target).

HELLO EVERYONE, I got the combo VCR/CD to work last night. All along it was a lose connection in one of the coaxial cable. I re connected it to the wire plug it in turn on the TV to the correct channel and watched the movie RV with Robin Williams, boy what a great movie laugh my rear end off. It brought back memories when I first started out camping. this movie is a hoot But I would like to thanks everyone for their valuable input.

I ran into this problem with my older bus. My solution (for me) was to scrap the junction box entirely. This was easy for me since I haven't had cable or dish in over 3 years.
I have mounted my new 27" iMac desktop in the corner of the bedroom. I watch movies and television on it through the internet. I also have a backup hard drive with over 800+ movies on it. I do not use the front television at all. Anyone want a 25 inch CRT television? lol
