Portland1 I know you have been waiting for a reply for a long time - but I do not often check this forum.
I recently installed a flat screen TV on the wall bracket - the Sat. receiver was not a problem as the tv has a standard "cable" type coaxial connector. The DVD/VCR combo
had to be input using RCA connector cables.
On the remote for the TV there is a button marked "input" this is how you tell the TV which signal source to use. (ANT or RCA).
Wow - I had forgotten about this thread. Thank you for answering! When I posted it I was in the process of restoring my old 1905 house and my contractor installed the flat screen for me. It is on a bracket that swivels and has two shelves below the TV - one holds the cable box and the DVD/VCR player and the lower shelf holds my laptop. I also have wireless that covers the house and yard so it all works well!
Thanks again for answering. I appreciate it.
