    I have a connector cable with three plugs (red, green and blue) on each end, I noticed that the HD TV has five input receeptacles, however the GO Video DVD/VHS player only has three outlet receptacles. Is this the problem and, if so, what kind of cable can I get with the proper connection points?

Yes , this is why , on your dvd there is a "yellow for video" output on it ,and then there is a "red output jack for right audio"
and then there is a "white output jack for left audio" does your tv have these inputs?

the blue , green and red "RCA JACKS" are called " composite video" which seperates the colors of given video

the red and white RCA jacks are for right and left audio and are required when using composite or the yellow video jack

there is also a "s-video" connection that is one cable but seperates the colors for better picture quality ( dvd player only)( vcr and tuner do not work with this)

then there is a optical or coax digital connection for a reciever that decodes the connections audio digital signals for dolby digital surround sound

    also s-video ( if used for dvd playing) will also require the red and white audio connections

  • jason Jan 08, 2009

    and if you are going to use the composite video then the red and white audio jacks also will be required , and again this only works for dvd playing

  • jason Jan 08, 2009

    the yellow video ouput and the red and white audio connections will work for dvd , vcr and tuner

How to tune up dvd player


  • Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of RCA audio and video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. The colors of these cables are yellow (video), white (left audio) and red (right audio).

Take the other end of the RCA audio and video cables and connect them to the color-corresponding inputs on your television. When plugging in these cables, look for a label for the input, such as "Video 1" and "Audio 1." This will be important in Step 5.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the video input channel that you noted in Step 3. If you did not take note, you can also tune through your television's input channels until you find the one displaying the signal from the DVD/VCR player.

Insert a VHS tape or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

Component Video

Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of component video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. These cables will look similar to composite audio and video cables, but they are instead color-coded as red, blue and green.

Plug the other end of the component video cables into the color-corresponding inputs on your television. Take note of what input number you are plugging the cords into, as it will be useful later.

Connect a set of RCA audio cables to "Audio Out" jacks on your VHS/DVD player, then connect the other ends to your television. These cables are color-coded as red and white and must be plugged into the same input number as the component video cables.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the component video input channel where you connected the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Insert a VHS or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

I recently purchased an LG RH397D dvd recorder> Ihave now discovered taht it will not receive the new free view channels and I need a HD set top box. How to I connect the set top box to the dvd...


Hi, The set top box will more than likely have two coaxial connectors ( threaded/ribbed pieces of metal ) coming out of the back. also three R.C.A. connectors-these will be smooth and be colored yellow red and white. one of the coax connectors will say " IN FROM ANT> or CABLE IN) the other ( OUT TO T.V. ) hook up your dvd recorders " ANTENNA " input to the set top box's ANTENNA output. If your D.V.D. recorder doesn't have an antenna input then hook up the recorders audio/video input to the set top box's audio/video output. then you should be good to go. If you buy a H.D.T.V. tuner to receive FREE H.D. programming it may be possible to hook up to recorder with H.D.M.I. cables.( those connections resemble slots ) I hope this has been of some assistance, good luck, Prodzilla.

Tried to hook up hd cables and seems good but no audio tried to hook up but can't get to work


You cannot get AUDIO from Component Video, as it is only VIDEO, you must get another set of Cables RED & WHITE, and connect them from the AV, AUDIO Jacks, OUT on the "Sender" The DVD, Receiver etc, to the AV AUDIO IN on the TV. So you will have 5 Cables connecting BOTH Video & Audio. The Component Video, uses Blue, Green, & Red, these go color to color on the RCA Jacks at BOTH ends PLUS the Red & White Audio, color to color at BOTH ends. .Hope that clears things up.

Connecting my TV and DVD player to a digital set top box


There are 4 different types of cables and they have to do with the quality and resolution of what they carry.
1) Coaxial or an RCA to RCA, 'Yellow colored connectors' - Composite video - Lowest quality of video you can get. Mostly what people hook up from their VCR's. '240 to 480 lines of interlaced resolution.

2) S-VHS cable - 4 pins - Carry Chroma 'Color' over the one set of two pins and Luminance 'B&W' signal over the other 2 pins. This is a higher resolution than the Composite video cable - 480 to 512 'still interlaced resolution' or ' i ' .

3) Component cables - RCA ends but there are 3 of them. Red colored 'for the Red video signal', Green colored connector 'for the Green video signal with Vertical sync laid on top of it,' and then Blue colored 'for the 'yep you guessed it' the Blue video signal with the horizontal carrier laid on top of the signal'.
This is the higher resolution of 720 ' i ' interlaced or even when selected by your piece of output equipment up to 1080p 'Progressive' resolution if your equipment can output this highest resolution.

4) HDMI - is a cable that not only carries the component but does it digitally along with audio and an ID bit that the Transmitting equipment 'STB' in this case should communicate with your 32" LCD HD-TV so that it will put out the maximum signal 'probably 1080P' that your TV will handle.
I would try to obtain an HDMI cable and use this to connect your STB to your LCD for the best connection between your two units.

I have a HD TV with cable and a go video DVD/VHS player hooked up. I went to change the time and accidentally changed the setting on the DVD player from auto scan (I think) from off to on and now when I...


It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.

It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.

#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.

#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.

It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.

Best of luck.

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD


1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.

Need instruction to hook up dvd player


You will need a TV or monitor with audio/visual inputs. The better ones have what is known as an S/VHS input, which separates the TV picture signal for better color reproduction. You will need to be able to switch your TV, usually by the channel selector, to the proper input for audio visual signals. Sometimes this is known as Video 1, Video 2, A/V etc. These are usually below Channel 2. Maybe your remote has that option. You will need an a/v cable. This is a three-connector cable with RCA plugs on each end. Connect the DVD player to the TV as follows: 1. Yellow cable, from video OUT on the DVD player, to video IN on the TV. Video is ALWAYS yellow. 2. Red and white cables from audio OUT on the DVD player to audio IN on the TV. 3. If you have S/VHS capability, buy an S/VHS patch cable which will have the three plugs mentioned, plus a round 4-pin plug. Select S/VHS OUT on the DVD player, and S/VHS IN on the TV. When using S/VHS, ignore the yellow connector. It is for composite video and not needed. Here's a hint: Your YV audio/visual inputs will usually be on the back of the set. Some better units have a/v inputs in front. What if my TV doesn't have a/v inputs? If your DVD player as an RF output, connect an RF "f" cable from that output to the antenna in cable on your TV. Otherwise buy an RF converter (about $20 or so at Radio Shack). Connect your a/v cable (yellow, red and white) from the DVD player to toe converter, then connect an RF cable (like the kind your cable box is connected with) to the antenna input on your TV. This signal usually comes in on Channel 3. Let me know if your problem is more complicated, It seems like a lot of wires and connections, but it is really straightforward, Remember, yellow is ALWAYS video. The two audio cables can be connected without worrying about color.

I have a samsung 32 inch LCD HDTV and trying to hook up to Pioneer DVD player. There are three colors of wires to connect the DVD to the TV. I get the sound(audio) but not the video. It just shows black...


Just make sure you hook up the wires to the correct plugs. They should be colr coded - red and white for audio and yellow for video. The sockets on the TV will have the same color code. If not, its just a matter of trying various combinations. If nothing works, then try using a different cable.
