What are the functions of my input jacks?

My player has 7 female jacks for RCA plugs. The yellow, red, and white ones for standard stereo tv are familiar. They are connected and play DVDs through my tv set.

The player also has jacks labeled: ''Y'' green, ''Cr'' red, ''Cb'' blue, and ''Coaxial'' orange. What are these for? Can I use my same RCA cables to connect these jacks to corresponding jacks on my TV set?

Can I use progressive scan on ordinary DVDs? How?

The Y, Cr, Cb are referred to as "Component Cables". These are for enhanced quality. These connections must be used, at the min, for HDTV. THe Coaxial orange cable is for digital audio (used with a home theater system.

    Sorry, I need to answer the rest of your question. You can use your RCA jacks, but it is recommended that you get some better cables, such as the brand Monster.



    As for progressive scan, this has nothing to do with the DVDs, it is all about the DVD player. If the DVD player is progressive scan and you use component cables, you are good to go. This is assuming you have an HDTV.

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

II HAVE A 13 INCH BRAND MODEL DWT 1304. I JUST WANT TO USE IT FOR A DVD PLAYER. I HAVE NO REMOTE ,HOW DO I CHANGE THE TV TO PLAY DVD OR VEDIO


Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.

Setting up my wii with my trutech tv


The Wii comes with standard AV jacks. Look for the female plug ends on your television that match the colors of the Wii's AV jacks, red, yellow, and white. Plug them in. Turn on TV and Wii. Use the input function of the TV to select the AV input (usually says "game", "video", or "input"). Play Wii.

I HAVE A RCA TELEVISION, MODEL F20632. I CANNOT FIND THE MANUAL TO HELP ME SET UP MY VCR. I HAVE A 4-PLUG VIDEO CABLE (YELLOW, BLACK, GREEN AND RED). CAN YOU TELL ME WHICH CONNECTIONS ON THE TV I NEED TO...


the yellow rca input jack( not the output one ) is for video in (by itself ) and the red and white rca jack inputs are for the right and left audio that is also required when using the yellow video jack
the red and white audio jacks are also required when using the component video inputs ( BLUE , GREEN & RED ) rca jacks
but only one type of connection is required ( yellow video jack , red and white audio jacks ) or ( the blue , green and red component video jacks and the red and white audio jacks )

you will need the yellow video input and the red and white audio inputs

No sound when using the TV


1- Find the two audio out female RCA jacks on your tv. One is red one is white. Some older tvs may not have any, if so you are out of luck.
2- Purchase a stereo patch cord (male x male RCA) long enough to reach the LG's Subwoofer.
3- Connect the red and white plugs to the tv output and connect the red and white plugs to the "Aux In" female RCA jacks on the subwoofer.
4- Select stereo input for sound on the LG's user interface.

You will be able to upconvert the stereo input to various surrond modes by studying the control manual.

Our tv has two inputs not three. The player has three outputs. The tv has one for audio and one for video. We are unable to get the philips to function under these circumstances. ps we have three different...


ok i am guessing that you are referring to RCA type hookup, if so there are 2 different types - yellow/white/red and red/green/blue no your TV probably has 1 yellow and 1 red or white if this is the case then make sure that you match up the yellow with yellow and then for the red and white these are for sound and you can buy a conversion cable at wal-mart for under $5 just make shure that it is 2 female RCA to 1 male RCA then plug both the red and white into the female sides and the 1 male into the one on the TV - now the channel that this input will show up as will most likely be AV1 or AV2 not a normal channel like the VCR did with channel 3

if you tell me the brand and model # on TV i will look it up for you and give you a more detailed description

DVD player hook-up problem


Using the composite video connection method is pretty straightforward. you will be dealing with one video cable (marked in Yellow), and two audio cables (marked in White and Red) Red is right channel and white is left channel if stereo, if mono use the white marked cable. Look at the back of your DVD player you will see the video out RCA jack (marked in yellow) plug one end of the video cable into this jack, the plug the other end of the cable into the TVs Video In jack (marked in yellow) Then plug the audio cables into the Audio Out RCA jacks of the DVD player Red marked cable to red jack White Marked cable to white jack. After this is done plug the ends of the sother side of the cable into the Audio input of the TV white to white, red to red. At this point you should have video and audio once you set the menu of your tv to accept input from the Composite input and the audio jacks. I hope this helps.
