I feel really dumb asking this question but I have an LXI tv and i can't find the place to plug in the wires for the DVD player ( I think its called RCA) I can't imagine that a TV would not even have a place to plug it in. Please help

Hi hula,

If it's an older TV it's possible that it did not have RCA inputs (composite video inputs). If it's not on the back, often it's in the front but hidden behind a plastic panel that opens down to reveal the input and perhaps a few more buttons.

Is there an "Input" button on the remote or on the front panel? If yes, then the video input is there somewhere, maybe hidden behind a door.

If all you see is one screw looking connector on the back where the antenna or cable TV goes to, then you have an older TV without a video input. You can still use a gizmo called an RF modulator to put the signal on TV channel 3 or 4. They cost from $10 to $20. You'll lose the really good DVD quality, but the quality will still be very good and still let you use your TV.

Hope that helps,
