DVD Player antenna in out

randy_caAugust 10, 2007

Hello, I'm new here.

I'm beginning to get the impression that a DVD Player does not come with the coaxial antenna in & out, and that I have to use the RCA A/V cables (yellow - video) (red/white audio)

Could someone verify this please.

My own DVD/VCR combo has the coaxial antenna in & out plugs, but I'm looking for a friend with just a DVD Player.

The plan was to go with coaxial from the cable box to dvd, then from dvd to tv, but it seems DVD Players do not have this, but DVD recorders do.

I've looked at diagrams and they show A/V out from the cable box to A/V in #1 TV, then A/V out from DVD Player to A/V in #2 TV.

Is this the way it has to be, or do newer DVD Players come with the coaxial plugs.

I'm looking at used players for $20, so they may be a few years old.

Thank you,

DVD players do not have tuners which select stations, so there is no need to supply them with a signal from an antenna. It can't do anything with it. Your DVD player only sends a signal out. Can the TV handle both the coaxial antenna from the cable box and the yellow/red/white RCA cables from the DVD player? If it can, your problem is solved.
