Hi
Can anyone tell me how to connect all of these together:

an old tv (with cox output and attenna in only)

rf modulator box (with cox out attenna in and single YRW audio/video connection)

old vcr (Multiple YRW connections and COX)

with newer DVD player (multiple YRW connections and COX)

Right now i have:
a cox cord going from tv to vcr and
my tv attenna hooked to the rf modulator
a cox cable hooking vcr to rf modulator
YRW video cord connecting the dvd player to the rf modulator

How do i add a converter box to this?

Put the converter box between the antenna and the Rf modulator, why are you using a rf modulator just curious?

rf modulators are used to hook up an A/V device such as a dvd player, camcorder, or game system to a tv that doesn't have A/V inputs.

It converts A/V to coax.

Hi Stacey,
You're not trying to use a converter box with Cox cable right? Only reason why I ask is because converter boxes are not compatible with Cox cable. You have to rent their brand of box from them.

if your VCR has A/V ports (most newer made ones do - 1999-present) should have yellow/white composite you can hook your DVD player up through the VCR and flip your vcr's input source to 'video' or AV, AV1, and use thee RF modulator for the converter box.

Composite gives a slightly better pic and sound quality over RF which squeezes sound and video through one line.
