getting rid of background sound from the tv?

I didn't notice this problem before, perhaps it wasn't there earlier?

the problem I have is pretty noticiable now here's how it is...

I have a crappy tv that doesn't have the ports for my dvd player. So I have to connect it to the vcr then the vcr to the TV (i know macrovision problems and etc but not w/ all dvds)

So I usually turn to like ch 3. which appears to be a blue screen on my tv. Then i turn the dvd player on and then press 'input' and I can see the dvd on my tv. Problem is i get the background static sound (like when it's just the tv on and ur on a channel w/o any signals)

So I switch from ch 3 to like ch 20(a channel w/ a show on) the static sound is gone but i hear the voices of the show in the background of the dvd..

is there any way I can fix this? w/ ch3 on the vcr, there's no static sound but I get the static sound once i press input to get the dvd to play.. thanks

Do yourself a favor and pic up an RF modulator from Ratshack. It will allow you to hook up your DVD player to your TV without having to go through the VCR. This may fix your problems but you definitely wont have to worry about macrovision.
