The standard connections are yellow=video, white and red are left and right stereo audio. The easiest is straight to the TV

I need to connect this tv to a panasonic dvd player

There are three cables with which you can connect a DVD player to a TV.Since you have not mentioned both the TV & DVD model I will give you general info.
1) The oldest and the simplest connectivity is composite cable ( Yellow/Red/White )
Connect the DVD players composite out using this cable and connect it to the TV's AV input .bobhifi_48.jpg
2) For better picture quality connect using component video cable if your TV has that socket at the back. Red/Blue/Green for video and another Red and White for audio.

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.

Connect dvd recorder to cable box and hdtv

I have posted a tip that should help you out with your problem follow the link below but there is one minor variation for connecting to your TV.

On step 3 of the connections section substitute the follow for your situation.

You will need 1 component cable (Red/Blue/Green/Red/White cable)

3) Connect the Green/Blue/Red connectors to the back of the DVR labeled "COMPONENT OUT" matching the colors. Connect the same ends to the input of the back of the TV again matching the colors.

4) Connect the last two connectors (Red/White) to the back of the DVR to the AUDIO IN on the TV.

Other than this variation all shoud be the same.

Good Luck...

I Have just bought this reviever (Yamaha Rx-v365)and im just trying to work out how to best connect all my devises. I have Tivo, Lg DVD player with both yellow, red white cables and blue green red cable...

Hi, firstly some terminology:
yellow cable - video composite (worst quality)
white/red - stereo analog audio
blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)

You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.

If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.

For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.

For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.

Movie has no red color only green and yellow

Remove & re-seat the component video cables at both the TV and the DVD player.

If the problem continues, disconnect BOTH ends of the BLUE cable and the RED cable. Connect the BLUE cable to the RED jack at both the DVD and TV, and connect the RED cable to the BLUE jack ob both the TV and DVD. If the RED color comes back and the BLUE is missing, then replace the RED cable (the red cable is broken and will not pass the signal that it is connected to).

If all works, reconnect the colored cables to the corresponding colored jacks at both the TV and DVD player.

If the RED color still won't display, isolate the trouble to either the DVD player or TV by connecting the DVD to another TV w/ component jacks. If the RED is still missing, it is a problem inside the DVD player - if the RED displays, it is a problem with the TV.

Good luck!

Hook up of dvd to tv

hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

simplify- blue green red= component
red white yellow=composite

*wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

How to connect to TV

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.

Sound but no picture

Your player has several outputs and you might want to start with the basic Video Audo Left Right output first.

Set your with your plazma to see if you can change the input types to accept the video and audio input which will probably be labeled AV 1, AV 2 and so on.

My guess is that you have it set for Component Red Blue Green which his a high def (just before HTMI) and requires a separate audio cable. Your player, depending on the age of the unit, probably will not have Red Blue Green picture output.

Next if you have an HTMI output from your player hook that to your Plazma in the HDMI 1 position and select it on the TV's setting. Audio and Video are both carried in the HDMI cable.

Good luck, my name is Eric Kirkhuff

Trying to connect sony dvd player to hdtv

You will need some cables first. It's really not that difficult once you know what each cable does.

Since you're only connecting from the DVD player to a receiver, this should be simple.

There are 4 solutions depending on what cables you have.

Composite - Yellow, Red, and White ended connectors.
S-Video - Black 4-pin connectors.
Component - Green, Blue, Red and sometimes extra Red, White for audio.
HDMI - heavy cable with a wide/flat connector.

Composite connection - Connect the yellow end to the yellow Video Out of the DVD player and to the DVD Video In on the receiver. Connect the Red audio connector to the Red Audio out of the DVD player, the White connector to the White Audio out of the DVD player, and then connect those to the Red and White Ins for DVD Audio on the Receiver.

S-Video Connection - This is the same as the Composite video connection, but connect the black 4-pin cable into the S-Video out of the DVD player and into the In for DVD on the back of the receiver instead of using the yellow video cable. The S-Video cable is a video only cable and uses the same audio cables (the red and white ended cables) for audio.

Component Connection - On the back of the DVD player, connect the 3 video cables that are Red to Red, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green. These will be labeled Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. Connect these video cables to the inputs of the receiver the same way Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. The audio connection is the same as composite and there should be a place on the DVD player that will tell you what audio is for Component. This is also the same on the back of the receiver.

HDMI Connection - This one is the easiest to connect as your audio and video are in the same cable. Plug in your HDMI cable in the back of the DVD player (there should only be one) and then to the HDMI connection for DVD on the back of the receiver.

Now...once you have your connections made, turn on your DVD player, set your receiver to DVD, and enjoy.

If your receiver does not have video inputs, you will need to run the video lines directly to your TV while the audio lines go to your receiver. This will mean you will need to set the receiver to DVD as well as change the channel of the TV to the input you have the DVD player plugged into.

I hope this helps.
