What is used to connect a DVD player to a television?
It can use A/V, (Audio Video) cords. In Europe use the SCART sockets and leads. The older DVD players have an RF output with a round (Belling Lee) co-axial antenna cord.
With the Scart/AV leads, select the AV input on the TV.
With the antenna type connection, you will have to tune the TV to the DVD's channel.

Answer . \nYou cannot. You need a device to tell the cd-rom to turn itself on and how to read the information from the disk and where to send the information to be viewed.\n. \nYou may however get a video card that has RCA out and S-video out that can be piped into you tv directly to RCA in or S…-video in. You may have to use an adaptor. (MORE)
Using a cable. It varies based on your DVD Player and TV. Some DVD Players can be connected using Scart, Composite, Component, RGB and HDMI cables. Only use on cable at a time though.
Get a double sided A/V cable and connect it to the DVD player's A/V outlet and the other side to the tv's A/V outlet. Then you must get a male double sided coxal caple and connect to the VCR's coxal outlet then do the same for the tv. I hope this helps you. ;)
use the optical cable from DVD that's if you have digital out on yoyr DVD player is so connect it to the amp
You connected your DVD player to HDMI 1 port on the back of your tv and then turned source to HDMI 1 and the green light indicating HDMI did not come on so I do not get a picture from my TV?
It could be that your HDMI input card is defective, which means that it'll have to be replaced. For giggles though, unplug your TV for a few minutes and then plug it back in. This may reset the microprocessor and allow the card to work again. The other problem may simply be that you don't have… something connected properly. (MORE)
Sonic record now has options for recording to playback on PC or TV, Car Stereo. Your recording software should have some options I think you still need a home DVD player to connect to the TV, then you could watch the video DVD on TV.
The choice of connector is defined by the connectors on the DVD player and the TV. However, if you have a selection of connectors on each this is the preferred order to deliver the best quality:. HDMI - a digital video and audio signal in a single cable (supports HD and SD). DVI - the same video s…ignal as HDMI but you will need to add a separate audio cable as DVI carries no audio. (also supports HD, SD and other computer resolutions). Analogue component - normally three phono connectors on domestic equipment (SD only in almost all cases). RGB - May appear as 3 or 4 phono sockets or as a 15 pin D connector as found on VGA displays. (support for signals as chosen by the display manufacturer). S-Video - a small 4 pin round connector or two phonos. (SD only). Composite - A single phono and the lowest quality of all the interfaces. (SD only). Note also that in Europe, component, RGB, S-video and composite can all be carried on a scart connector which also carried audio and signalling lines.. The signal interfaces remain identical regardless of whether the display is progressive or interlaced by the way. Most broadcast media is interlaced while most computer signals are progressive. The display will carry out whatever conversion is required automatically. (MORE)
Check the audio cable to make sure it is connected correctly andsecurely. It also might be that the TV does not have a sound bar soa surround sound system needs to be purchased though that isdoubtful.
Yes, it is perfectly okay to connect the HD DVD player to a regular SD TV set as long as you can match the connectors on the HD DVD player and SD TV set. There is no harm doing it except that you will not be able to get HD picture. What you will get is 480i/p or 576i/p picture and not 720p or 1080i/…p picture.. Hope this answers the question to the readers' satisfaction. (MORE)
You can run component cables (which are red, blue, and green) or an HDMI cable which combines audio and video into one convienient plug.
You probably copied the files in the wrong format.. DVD's requires that all files be compiled into a single file called an "image" that is then written to the disk. You need a DVD writting software to do that.. CD's wriiten to be played back on a television disc player must be compatible with the …particular player you have. The owners manual will usually tell you what file types it can play and how they need to be organised on the disc to play. Many older disk players wont play individual computer files like JPG's and MP3's so you might be out of luck if you have one of these older ones. (MORE)
Usually the criteria for needing a tv license is if you have a tv-receiver or not. If your DVD-player has an antenna input connector and can record stuff sent over the air, then you probably need a license(although local regulations may vary).
You connect a DVD player to a TV via a scart cable and a compositeor HDMI cable. If using a composite cable, ensure that the colorson the plug match up with those of the audio and video jacks.
This is kind of a multi-facedted answer. The long and short of it is that you need to have an open place to connect your DVD player to your TV. If you don't, it might pay to either get a switch to split the input to your TV, or a home theater system. If this doesn't answer your question, you might n…eed to be more specific about what you have in terms of available places to plug your DirecTV and DVD players into in your question/reply. (MORE)
Which connection do you use to connect your HDMI Blu-ray DVD player to your big screen which is an older model tv?
Televisions that are a few years old are almost certain to be standard definition and will have analog inputs. If that is the case, HDMI cannot be used as it is a digital signal. The television will also not be able to handle high definition signals.\n. \nThe only likely option is to use the comp…osite or standard definition output from the Bluray player. Although the HD quality won't be seen, at least this will offer a way to watch HD discs. Almost all Bluray players have a standard definition output but each model is lightly different so check the manual for each one. (MORE)
Composite video 3-jack component video and S-video are types of connections one can use to connect a DVD player to a television?
Depending on the DVD player. Any DVD player will have one or more of those options. IT could also have an HDMI out. For best quality, connect it to the highest signal your television can take in. The best is HDMI, followed by component, followed by s-video, with composite being last. That bein…g said, there are two different types of component. One had "b" as the second letter of the color it transmits, and one has the letter "c". Your TV and DVD player would have to match to run component. "c" is generally an older format. (MORE)
Are Composite video and 3 jack component video and S video types of connections one can use to connect a DVD player to a television?
Yes, assuming your DVD player and TV have the hookups, you could use any one of those.
How old are we talkin here. If it just has a cable plug-in then your going to have to take yourself to wally world (WalMart) and buy a cable/video, audio in adapter. They're not expensive. BTW they're found in the T.V. section.. it was made in 1999
Probably, but most likely you'll have to use audio/video cables for the connection ans witch the TV to video inpute mode. As far as that goes, you could also use a VCR as a TV tuner.
Are Composite video 3-jack component video and S-video are types of connections one can use to connect a DVD player to a television?
In order of best performance: HDMI, 3-jack component, S-video and the poorest is the Composite. All but the HDMI will require audio cables to be connected.
Yes. Blu-Ray players will only operate with a standard definition television using the analog outputs on the player. The outputs are standard definition of course, so the HD quality of the BluRay disc won't be seen.
If the tv has RCA inputs, use them. If not, you may need a device that can convert RCA to RF/coax in. Some VCRs can do this.
I have an old Dish DVR with recorded programs. I now use Time Warner Cable. Can I connect this dish dvr to my tv and or my DVD player and watch the recorded shows?
Absolutely you can watch your old recorded programs - provided thatyou still have the smart card that plugs into the Dish DVR.However, you cannot record programs, so do NOT attempt to connectthe DVR to the Time Warner system in any fashion. DO NOT plugANYTHING into the Dish DVR SATTELITE INPUT coaxi…al jack. There are several methods you can use to connect your old Dish DVR,depending on the model of the TV set. If it is fairly new then youshould have multipul inputs on the back of the TV. Look for an openRCA input set. This would consist of one of each - red, white, andyellow round jacks grouped together. Look for the printed namedesignation next to the jack set (i.e. VCR, INPUT 1, INPUT 2, AVIN, AUX, etc.). On the back of the Dish DVR you will see the same three jackslabled OUTPUT, or OUT TO TV, or something like that. Now, if youwere a good boy, or girl, you saved the RCA plug cable that waspreviously plugged in to the Dish DVR jacks. If not, look aroundthe house for a set. If not, then its Radio Shack time for you. Theclerk will know exectly what you need. The next step is to connect the TV and the DVR together with theRCA cable, making sure the plug colors match the jack colors. Turnon the TV and the old Dish DVR. If you did everything right thenyou TV should still be operating exactly like it was. Now grab theTV (not the Dish) remote control and figure out how to change theTV screen from TV to VCR, INPUT 1, INPUT 2, AV IN, AUX, etc.) Thereis definately a way to do it, so get someone to help you if youcan't figure it out (but I know you can). Once you have the Dish DVR on the TV screen, grab old Dish remote(check the batteries) and off you go. When you're done watchingyour recorded program(s) switch back to TV mode using the TVremote. Another option, assuming that your Time Warner box is connected toyour TV via a coax cable, will require a run to Radio Shack to buya coaxial A/B switch and two short coax cables (or look around thehouse). Connect as follows: 1) Disconnect the Time Warner box's coax cable from the back of theTV and connect it to A/B switch jack A. 2) Connect a short coax cable to the TV (where Time Warner wasplugged into) and the other end to the common (usually the center)jack of the A/B switch. 3) Connect a short coax cable to the Dish DVR OUT TO TV jack andthe other end to the A/B switch jack B. Now turn on the TV and the old Dish DVR and you should be able toswith back and forth between the two using the A/B switch. Rememberthat the old Dish DVR takes a while to boot up. Another option is if both your Dish DVR and TV has an availableHDMI jack. In that case, all you need is a short HDMI cable toconnect the two, and then figure out how the TV remote switchesyour TV to the HDMI port. In all cases the old Dish DVR will say "Searching for Signal". Thisis the new normal. Just press the DVR button on the remote. Last of all - its just pretty much common sense. Hope this helps. (MORE)
It's pretty easy. All you have to do is find the HDMI cable port and plug it in
Most Blueray players have an analog output that delivers standard definition signals. If a high definition disc is played, the output will normally provide an SD version of the content. Using the analog output means that it is possible to use Blueray players on SD televisions. When an HD television …is installed, the HDMI port can be used to obtain HD video. Before purchasing a Blueray player, check that it has an analog output and that it provides a down converted signal of HD material on the analog ports. (MORE)
Type your answer here... It should be nothing more than hooking up the HDMI cable from the HD tv to the DVD player.This cable delivers the video and the audio simultaneously.If it is an older DVD player like mine, I hooked up the video using a component cable which has three connections on each e…nd - red, blue, yellow then connect the audio using phono plugs.This cable has one red connection and one white.On the back of the DVD player there is an audio/out, the red goes on the left connection and the white goes to the right.The other end of that connects to the audio/in on the tv.Some cables such as Monster cable have a directional arrow on them.I don't think it matters.Monstercable seems to think it does.I hope this helped.

First, HD DVDs have been permanently discontinued. Second, Blu-Ray players will NOT work on old TVs. They will only work on HDTVs
You can't, for one simple reason: a DVD player can only play DVDs, it cannot record them. In order to copy anything onto a DVD, you need a DVD burner (or recorder).
If both are hi def, they should have HDMI inputs and outputs, so use an hdmi cable and then just set both devices to their top resolution.
Absolutely you can. An HD or HD ready TV will handle HD signals but they all will accept and display standard definition signals. That includes DVD players, VHS players and all other devices that can be connected to older televisions. Be aware that showing a DVD on and HD does NOT make the picture …into high definition one even though you may think the image looks a little crisper than on older televisions. (MORE)
Very very easy. does your DVD Player ( Home theatre ) have a HDMI cable? If it does, you can just buy an HDMi cable and connect it to Hdmi 1 on your tv and the other end to the Dvd Player and the sound a video will be very crisp. Alternatively, you can use an AV cable ( cable with yellow plugs… on the end) and connect it to an AV output on your tv and DVD player. If you are using only the tv's sound this will work, but if you are using a amp,etc. you can connect 2 RCA cables to the tv and the amp for the sound. (MORE)
Can you use Composite video 3-jack component video and s-video are types of connections to connect a DVD player to a tv?
Composite, S-video and component are three different analog interfaces for standard definition television signals. Component is the best quality of the three, followed by S-video. Composite is the lowest performance of the three signals. Any of them will connect a DVD player to a television as long… as both have the same connectors. Try to use component if possible but be assured that S-video and even composite still give good results. If there is an HDMI connector on both the player and the television, this will provide a component signal in a digital format so this would be the connection of choice if it is available. HDMI supports HD signals as well as SD but note that a DVD player delivers SD content. Using an HDMI connection does not provide HD quality even if it the player has an up-converter to generate an HD signal on the HDMI port. (MORE)
There are several things that are different between UK and US television equipment. A UK player normally runs on 240V. Some will also work at 110V but not all. You may need to obtain a 110V to 240V converter. Next, UK players will not generally play US DVDs because each disc has a region code built… in. If the region code of the disc is different to that of the player, the disc will not play. Therefore, only expect a UK player to play UK discs. The television standards are different in the two countries. Some but not all US televisions will handle UK video signals that use a different frame rate and different color encoding system. Lastly, UK television has been using widescreen format images for two decades. In the US, standard definition television has remained 4 : 3 viewing ratio with the 16 : 9 format only being introduced with HD. Playing a standard definition widescreeen signal to a US television may result in a distorted image without the means to adjust the aspect ratio. With these in mind, only consider taking a UK DVD player to the US if you need a means of playing a UK disc collection. If it simply to avoid purchasing another player, the hassle of setting up a UK player in the US far outweighs the cost saving. (MORE)

Are 3 jack component video and S video types of connections one can use to connect a DVD player to a television?
Component video and S-video are 2 types of connectors, although S-Video and Component connections are from TV's and DVD players quickly, in favor of HDMI connections. All new models of DVD players made after December 31, 2010 will only output Standard Definition video from the component outputs. 720…p, 720i and 1080i will not be offered as output options on new models of DVD players. Note that neither of these connection types send the audio from the DVD player to the TV. You will need analog or digital audio connectors for that. (MORE)

In general, you just plug a cable between the output connection(s)on the DVD player and the input connection(s) on your TV. The easiest, fastest and best-quality connection is the HDMI cable.This provides high-quality picture and sound, and only needs oneconnection at either end. If you can't use …HDMI, then the next-best thing is a component(3-conductor) or S-video cable. Both of these carry video only, soyou will also need an audio cable (2 conductors). And at the bottom of the quality list are composite (1 conductor)video cable along with 2-conductor audio cable, and analog RF cable(the kind of coaxial cable that connects your TV to your cable boxor antenna). Many DVD players do not even have an RF connector anymore, so you may not have that option. With this said, all connection cables except HDMI and RF arecolor-coded, as are the jacks on the DVD and the TV. You justconnect color to color, i.e. red goes to red, white goes to white,and so on.
