    I have a friend that has an old TV set and wants to see videos using a
    CD video player. Since the TV doesn't have a video input, the signal
    must be converted toRF.
    Can't I use the modulator on the VCR and tune the TV to channel 3/4 ?
    I know they sell modulators for this application but, does she need

    That should be fine, just select the alternate input on the VCR ( via
    the remote ctrl)

    that probably won't work because of video copy protection. Keeps
    people from copying dvd's on their vcr.

    Good point Ray
    That's probably the reason I can't get it to work. Must try with a DVD
    without copy protection.
