I haven't got a clue what you mean!.

Try and explain better - what have you got, and what are you trying to do?.

Velleman Kit
K4601 Audio Video TV Modulator

The modulator is used to connect a video signal from a camera or other video source to a normal TV. The audio and video signal is converted into a UHF TV signal that can be received through the TV antenna input. The kit comes complete with the housing. The stereo output from the dvd player will have to be mixed together before entering the converter though a neater solution is to buy a cheap pair of computer speakers, the ones with a built in amplifier. That way you can play audio cd's without having to turn the tv on as well.

The link posted isn't for a transmitter device, it's for hard wiring.

As he stated, what you need is an RF modulator, but you haven't listed your location in your details - so we don't have any idea what sort of specification you require.

Building it yourself from scratch probably isn't an option, RF construction (particularly at UHF frequencies is critical). An easy way would be to use an RF modulator out of an old VCR, build yourself one around one of those.

You wouldn't believe the number of people who come in the shop where I work wanting a 'SCART to aerial plug lead' - we now just tell them we don't stock them, try where they bought the DVD player - people just get angry when you try and explain there's no such thing.
