You need a Scart cable to connect the two. The instruction manual should tell you which port to connect to on the DVD (usually TV). The port on the TV should say AV in or similar . Sometimes you have to tune a TV channel to view the DVD but usually if you select AV on the TV it will play automatically.

RCA DRC247N DVD Player No Audio


The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work

How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


Things You'll Need:

* Component cables

Instructions


Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

Tips & Warnings

You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

How do I connect a JVC DVD video player model XV-S302SL to a cable box and a TV


There are several ways in which you can do this.

The first way. If your cable box has two scarts one will be label as tv and the other vcr or something similar. connect your Dvd player via scart to the vcr scart on the back of your cable box. then connect a scart from the cable box to the back of the TV.
That would be you all sorted. when you turn your DVD player on this should override your cable and display the dvd screen.

Second way. If your cable box has not got two scart ports on the back of it. Then you would have to connect both to the back of your TV. If there are not two scart ports at the back of your TV then you can purchase a scart lead splitter. I would imagine the Cheapest you could find would be on Ebay or something similar.

Hope this Helped Clarify things for you.
If this has then please leave a thumbs up

How do i connect my dvd player?


It depends on what outputs your DVD player has and what inputs your TV has.
If your DVD player has HDMI outputs and your TV has a HDMI input then you will need to purchase a HDMI cable and connect the 2.
If either your DVD or TV does not have HDMI then you will need to move on to either a component video cable which has 3 cables on the end which are colored red, blue and green. You will also need to connect for audio which is a cable with 2 colors, red and white.
There are also s-video and the regular old way of connecting which is a 3 cable design which has a yellow end for video and a white and red end for audio.

If you need any more help or can offer more info on what connections your TV and DVD player have then I would be happy to help.
