How to connect to TV

We only have one red, white, & yellow connection on our Tv and that goes to the dish box. The next connection would be the red, blue and green. Are these the only cables that I need to buy in order to make the dvd player work? Do I do anything about the yellow on the dvd that says 'video' The red,white, yellow are side by side with 2 rows of red, blue, green. I have an extra set of r,w,y cables. Are they useable?

The Yellow/Red/White connectors are Composite+Audio
Yellow carries a composite signal and Red and White Carry left and right audio channels.

Red Green Blue Connectors are Component
Each coloured connector carries one 'component' of the picture

So yes, your extra set of red white yellow cables would be fine to use, just make sure you connect the same colors at each end red-red green-green blue-blue

However..... the red green blue only carry the video, you will still need to carry the Audio, this is usually done either by the red and white (L & R stereo) or your DVD may also have an optical or coaxial output to carry the sound. if there is no equivalent connector on the TV then you may be stuck swapping the red/white cables, usually though there would be 2 sets of red/white connectors one set to go with the yellow, one set to go with RGB.

What channel does my tv need to be on? and what button do i press on my dish network remote to get me to the wii screen


Usually it depends on how you connected to the TV/satellite box- for instance, I have mine set on channel AUX 1 since I have connected my Wii to the TV using the component cables (the red yellow and white cables) to the port AUX 1. If you've hooked it to the Dish box, then it would be whichever accessory you connected is the channel to select in the dish system, but on the channel that your dish is hooked up (it's situational!)

I just bought a new dynex 32 inch DX-32L152A11 tv. I tired to hook it up to my dish system and the picture is black and white and no sound.


Hello Debbie,

This is due to incorrect connections between the dish box and the TV. You may find that if you select another input (AV1) on the TV, you will have sound from the dish system, but no picture.

I suspect you are using an RCA type AV cable with red, white and yellow jacks on both ends. You've most likely connected the yellow jack to a socket labelled Y, Pb or Pr on the back of the TV and then selected the COMPONENT input on the TV.

If you are using a cable with red, white and yellow jacks, please make sure they are connected to the sockets on the back of the TV shown below. I've ringed the socket for the white jack in green for better visibility.

Once you've done this, select the AV1 input on the TV by pressing the INPUT button on the dynex remote, then use the arrow keys to highlight AV1 and press ENTER to select.

If this does not solve your problem, please let me know which type of cable you are using and the model number of your dish box. If you don't know the technical term for the type of cable you are using, please describe it as best you can, i.e. how many plugs/jacks are on each end of the cable and whether they are color-coded.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

I am trying to hook the dvd player up to my old tv and am only getting sound, I am using the red, white and yellow cord.


I hope this will clarify things, you have 3 connections on each end.
DVD
  • Yellow Cable goes on Video Out (Yellow)
  • White Cable goes on Left Audio Out (White)
  • Red Cable goes on Right Audio Out (Red)

TV
  • Yellow Cable goes on Video IN (Yellow)
  • White Cable goes on Left Audio IN (White)
  • Red Cable goes on Right Audio IN (Red)

the coaxial audio connection does NOT need to be connected.
I hope this helps,

We're not getting any sound from the dvd's. I have two cables (green/blue/red) and (red/white). but I'm at a loss how to connect from DVD to TV. Help please!


If your TV has the green, blue, red inputs then connect these 3 cables for the picture. DVD to TV, green to green, blue to blue and red to red. If your TV only has a yellow input, then connect the green cable only from the DVD yellow to the TV yellow. Now for the sound. Connect the DVD white to the TV white. Connect the DVD red to the TV red with the red cable. The white and red inputs will be next to the yellow and the green, blue, red inputs on the TV. Next select the TV input using your TV remote. Select the input for the DVD connection.

From cable box component out to tv component picture is on no aud


You need to also connect the RCA audio out (red/white) from your source to the audio input on the TV. You do not need the yellow wire as that is for composite video. The component cable (red/green/blue) is only for video. Look at the input on the TV where you connected the red/green/blue cable. Right next to it, you should have another red and white connectors for the audio input. Connect that to the audio out on the cable box.

Help Me!


My tv has several video inputs & this is the way I did mine. I ran the red,white & yellow cable from the dish box to "video 1" on the tv. For the Magnavox I ran a coax cable from the dish receiver out to the rear of the Magnavox & the red,white,yellow from the magnavox to the tv "video 2". Check the dish box to see if the switch in the back reads channel 3 or 4 & set your magnavox to the same. Make sure in the setup you have it set to rear connections. If you have picture on both video settings on the tv everything is golden. Hope this helps.

you can hook the cable box into the vcr and then out of the vcr into the spliter which will turn your tv red/white/yellow signel input into two inputs( you can get this at most radio shacks for about $7.00 dollors) this leaves you with one more input for the dvd player
