Question about Televison & Video
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.
