So, you are getting interested and want to know what you get hardware
wise with your ~US$250 dollar purchase.
This flashy box should get your attention at your local retailer.
Included as accessories is a package containing a remote control, the
usual warranty registration and users manual, batteries (nice feature,
most manufacturers don't include), a composite video and audio cable and
a quick connect coaxial cable.
Last, but definitely not least, you will have this stylish unit to add
to your entertainment system.
PRODUCT INSTALLATION, SETUP & HOOKUP
To some people, the installation of an entertainment system component
can be a daunting task, especially if they are a person that is a member
of the "technically challenged" population. But, hooking up
this unit is really quite simple and you should have this unit up and
playing in no time flat.
Turning the unit around, you will be introduced to the unit's connection
For the majority, this will be the panel used to connect their cable
TV's coaxial cable and the composite cables for connecting to your TV
if it has composite inputs. If you own an older TV without the red, white
and yellow composite connectors, you CANNOT connect to your TV with the
coaxial cable. You unfortunately will have to buy a electronic component
called a RF Modulator that will combine the composite connectors into
a coaxial signal similar to your Cable TV cable. You can buy these at
Shack online in the U.S. or if you are in Canada you can buy them
If you are fortunate enough to have a newer TV with the three composite
inputs, simply connect from the composite output on the DVD player to
the input jacks on your TV and you are now setup for VCR and DVD playback.
