Use three RCA cables, yellow, white and red to connect DVD player to TV as shown in the diagram below. Connect yellow to yellow and white to white. Connect red to red. Select on the TV, the A/V input where the DVD is connected using the TV remote control. Power on TV and DVD, place a disc in tray of DVD player and press PLAY.
OK here is a possible solution:
1) The best solution: Connect the antenna to your DVD-VCR through the RF Input and the the RF Out to your TV This take care of the VCR part. Then you get an RCA three way cable (Video-yellow marked, Right Audio-Red marked, Left Audio-white marked)connect the yellow marked RCA cord to the Video out of your DVD player then connect the other end to your video in of your TV. Ater that connect the red marked audio cable to the R Audio out of your DVD player to the R Audio in of your TV do the same for the white marked Audio cable. You will now be able to switch from VCR-RF to DVD-RCA.
On the dvd player and the tv you will see three (or more) colored connectors. These are color coded yellow, red amd white. One is for audioleft, another for audio right, and the third is video. You can get the cable with the colors so all you need to do is plug the ends into the same color connectors.
thats about as complicated as it gets. Then you need to look at your tv and select source or antenna. That tells the tv where the signal is coming from. you watch your movie and flip the source back to cable or where it finds your normal tv stuff.
You can get the cabes almost anywhere these days. the dollar store around the corner here sells them cheaper than the tv or electronics stores. I think the larger grocery stores even have some. So you don;t need to worry about spending a lot to get good ones. Very little difference in reality. Only thing is to make sure you get it long enough so you can put the dvd where you want or need to and try to get the 3 cable wih color coded ends.
The S_Video connection has precedence (most likely named AV1) over the RCA/composite one (better image quality - usually named AV2) so it will be automatically selected. If you want to view thru AV2 input you will have to select it manually every time you want it.
Hook up your cables from your DVD player to these input on the back of your TV.
The group of ports should be labeled as video 1 input. Use the Yellow, Red and White on the back of both DVD Player and TV. Then, change the input on the TV remote to input or video 1 to watch the DVD Player.
The best suggestion I would advise is to buy a shielded scart connector & connect that from your DVD combi to either AV1 OR AV2. It sounds as if you are picking up RF interference from your current connections, this can sometimes happen if the cables do not have adequate shielding.
You will need to connect the dvd via one of the inputs on the tv then select that input on the tv to see the dvd. Since dvd can connect to the tv several ways I suggest you read the owners manual as they show all the hookups to the tv. If your dvd has an hdmi input that's the best output to use from the dvd player.
