Thread Name: BS: Connecting VHS player to flat screen TV?
Subject: RE: BS: Connecting VHS player to flat screen TV?
It depends entirely on what types of connections each supports. The most basic is probably coaxial cable. If they both support RCA plugs, that's good. You could also use an S-video cable if they both have it. Assuming this is a flat screen older television? A lot of the new high definition sets have plugs the VCR won't use. You could run it through an RF filter and have that go to the television with a coaxial or RCA cable. Put your older devices into the switch.
I haven't tried running the VCR through to the new HD TV. And I upgraded my DVD to a Blu-Ray that plays Blu-Ray disks and will also up-convert standard DVDs to fill the screen on the new TV. With every new wave of technology, one learns more and more about adapters. :)
