I have a very old T.V that only has a coaxial input. I also have a Toshiba DVD player that only has composite video outputs. I have tried using both a vcr and an actual rf modulator to enable me to use this dvd player with my t.v. In both cases, the video is fine, but the sound is extremely low. If I turn the volume up on the t.v., I get hissing/crackling sounds so that the audio from the dvd is uninterpretable at any volume level. Does anyone know where I can get an old receiver with a coaxial output so that I can use this old t.v.?

Receivers don't have coaxial RF outputs for carrying Audio/Video. Your best bet is to buy a used TV that has at least composite video output. People are probably throwing these away right now with the digital transition in sight. One of my neighbors threw away a big screen analog TV last week!

did you mean '...used tv with composite video input'?

op would also need the red and white stereo audio inputs on said used tv.

You can buy an RF modulator for $20 or so. Google 'RF modulator'. Make sure it has a composite input.


I would not expect much from the picture quality though.
