    I own a RCA TV made in 1987 with no RCA Jacks in the back. Hooked to it
    I have a ORION VCR with 2 RCA Jacks. I just bought a AMW V101 DVD Player
    and the instructions keep saying to plug it into the back of the TV
    which I cannot do. I have tried plugging it into the Orion VCR like I
    used to with my home stereo and nothing happens.

    You need a TV with the proper A/V compatibility. Or, you can try a low cost
    A/V to RF modulator. Radio Shack may sell this type of modulator. The
    unfortunate part is that your TV set will never do a DVD player any justice
    for the quality that it can put out.

    One could say the same thing about almost any audio system vs. CD's as well.
    Nevertheless, DVD's will soon take over the market for prerecorded video.

    The guy just wants to watch a movie.

    I think the approach he's using should work, he just needs to find the
    control combination on the vcr which will pass the signal through to its rf
    modulator...probably a function of selecting the line input and vcr/tv
    switch. Most vcr's don't have a vcr/tv button on the front panel. I've
    gotten past that by putting in a tape and pressing play, then stop. The
    unit stays in vcr mode until you eject the tape or turn it off.

    Of course a new TV will look better and have the proper inputs, just like a
    new car would be faster and more comfortable than my '90 Corolla. I'm gonna
    stick with the old Toy' until it dies, however.
