My daughter got a dvd player and we cannot figure out how to hook it up...it has 3 plugs, red,white and yellow. there are no places to plug it in on the back of the tv (the cable is hooked in there) and on the front of the tv is only two plugs (red and white) and a headphone jack....do we have to get one of the rf modulators or something to get this to work. I tried to figure out if i could run it thru my cabel box, but am not sure where to plug in the connectors (if it';s even possible to do it this way)
I had the same issue and was freaking out cuz u could not watch dvd it was just make a very loud hum sound. I have a durabrand tv and hooked up my dvd player to it. My friend tried it from the front instead of back u should see a place to stick the yellow white and red in front. It worked but then the sound was off if u unplug the red one and just leave the other two plugged it in works great. Never had a issue since.
Your problem is that your TV has no video inputs. TVs use those red white and yellow plugs to transmit the signal via those cables. By cable box - do you mean a digital box? You can't run it through that unforunately - those connections are only for the box itself and it only has an output.
You'll have to go either: Buy a new TV or get an RCA Modulator.

You need 3 RCA plugs... generally colored red, white, and yellow. on the back of the DVD player plug the yellow to video out, the red to audio out (stereo), and the white to audio out (mono). The other side of them goes to the back of the TV... the yellow video input 1, the red audio (R) input 1, the white Audio (L) input 1. Then take the cable service round coax cable and screw it into the back of the DVD unit where it says Coax. Get another short coax cable and hook to back of the DVD unit on Cable out, and the other side to the back of the TV under cable/vhs. And that"s it! Hope that helps you! Chuck
On your TV IN .. Yellow is Video, Red is 1 Audio. White is Audio 2 this is for Stereo if Mono white is not used.Your TV then needs to be set to Aux or Imput.If no button on TV use UP-Down Chanels. Good Luck.

Are you reffering to your DVD player to be conected to with your TV screen?
For DVD player connection the 3 colored RCA jack socket are:
YELLOW = video out RED and WHITE = Audio out (left and right channels)
to hook up to your screen, at the back of the screen or side of it you'll see RCA socket indicating "AV1" "AV2" AV3" this are all Audio/video inputs where you can hook up all you A/V device or game consoles. These inputs also have the same 3 colored socket (yello = video red/white = audio) connect your DVD player to any of this input following the same color code.After connecting the cable, select the input where you hook up your dvd player. Do this by pressing "A/V" buttons in remote commander of your TV. continously press this button until it reaches the exact location where you plug your player ex. AV1, AV2,AV3
note: in some cases the remote commander doesn't indicate this A/V button but a picture of a box having a arrow pointing inside the box.
I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.
On the back, there are three ports that are color-coded and match the cables. Take the yellow cable and plug it into the yellow port. Do the same with the red and white. Take the other end of the cables and plug them into your TV or VCR. Most TVs and VCRs have ports for the cables on either the back or front, and are also color-coded. Plug the yellow cable into the yellow plug on your TV/VCR, and repeat for the red and white cables.
RCA plugs (the yellow, red, and white outlets you speak of) consist of a video plug (yellow) and stereo plugs for audio (red and white). Just match the colors from the DVD RCA colors to the RCA hook-ups on the TV (ex. Yellow the Yellow, White to White).
You don't need to worry about the red one, it just makes the DVD player play stereo audio. Instead, you'll have mono, which is fine, and most modern players can detect mono and switch it for you so don't worry about changing settings and what not (unless you're missing sound on one side.)
Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:
HDTV: Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.
DVD: Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.
This is a bit confusing. You cannot hook a CD/DVD player up to the PS2 console. If your trying to figure how to hook a PS2 console and a CD /DVD player up to a AV system. you need to hook the PS2 Yellow, White and Red cables to any input. Not just a DVD or CD input. Yellow is Video you need that. Hook the red and white to the same selected input.
