This is probably one of the simplist wiring projects I have ever seen and still I am having a major brain fart. I had a setup which was working the way I wanted it to, until I added in my cable box. Now, I don’t get a video signal out of my DVD player and no matter what my settings are my TV won’t get a picture from the player and the DVD recorder won’t pick it up either.
To make it easier to visualize, here is what I had. I copied my home DVD’s & VHS Tapes to DVD, enhancing the image by going through a SIMA Video enhancer. It worked perfectly. Recently I added a cable box to the mix, and nothing from the DVD Player, just audio. I am only using the simple RCA jacks with all components and coax from the cable socket. I have my video out from the player going into the SIMA. From the SIMA it goes to the DVD recorder, and from the DVD Recorder to the TV. I am not having any problems with the audio. When this setup was working I had the cable TV going from the wall to the TV and that was it, I didn’t record off TV.
Now, my coax cable runs from the wall, to the cable box, to the DVD recorder, to the TV.
The only thing I am sure of is that it worked before and now it doesn’t and it should have something to do with the way I have the cable TV line hooked up, but no matter which way I try it, I still get no picture. I did check the DVD player, by just sending it to the TV and it works fine.
I will probably kick myself when this gets figured out, but I am about ready to toss everything out the second floor window. What the heck am I missing???
Thanks for any assistance you can give!
