Question about Mintek DVD-1600 DVD Player
I cant figure out how to set up my dvd to my philips hdtv
Newer TVs have multiple inputs. Mr Mark is correct, you generally do not daisy-chain Audio/Video units unless you are using a recording device. Cable box to Cable input on TV. DVD player to other inputs.
Let's get some terminology out of the way. Specifically for the Mintek DVD-1600. There are NO inputs.
Coaxial Audio out (orange) is for digital audio only. Usually connects to stereo reciever for Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Not for TV.
S-Video (black w/4 small holes, 1 square) is for better quality video than composite. Use this to TV instead of Composite if you have a S-Video input on your TV.
Composite (Yellow) Older video input type. Works just fine. Connect to TV.
Audio Output ( Red & White) for analog stereo only. Goes to TV. Red=right, White=left channels.
Component Video Out (Blue, Green White) is the newest video output type in this unit. Better than S-Video. Use this option if available on your TV instead of S-Video or component.
