You can by an AV splitter box from dick smith or even k-mart audio section that allows you to plug all your units into it, then leads go to your TV. There is a switch on the box which you flick over depending whether you want to watch a DVD or play your game unit.

The other option is to have a llok at the back of your DVD player. Some have input AV's (the red, white and yellow holes !) where you could plug your game console into. Then you just leave your dvd plugged into your tv as normal. To play your game console you turn on TV and DVD player. Have TV on "AV" channel as well as your DVD player on "AV" channel (may also be your input or component channel.

Hope this helps :)

Do i need a s cord for sound when hooking up dvd player to tv


  • The connection you choose depends on the kind of connections available on your TV and on your DVD player. Some manufacturers provide only one kind of connection, others two kinds, and still others all three.
  • Regular AV connections provide good video quality.
  • S-Video provides better video quality.
  • Component Video provides the best quality video next to HDMI.
  • HDMI connections are the highest quality connections If need be adapters are available, to switch from S video cable to what you want. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck.

I cant figure out how to run it through my dvd player


You should not be able to, the Wii has a mini disc player and is not compatible with any DVD player. The DVD player should have two plugs on it, one to the wall input and one with yellow and red input jacks if you don't have a AV in-put out-put connection on your TV then you need a adapter for to TV for the DVD player.

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Hooking up a DVD player to a Quasar TV/VCR Combo


Hi,

Yes, for a workaround. The adapter would be 2 RCA female to 1 RCA male. You have to connect both the red and white to the female RCAs and use the male to connect to the TV's Audio INput. The yellow goes to the video. There should be no negative technical effect other than lost of stereo quality. The audio output of the DVD is line level and could normally tolerate this condition.

The correct method is to use a simple line level audio mixer and mix the L& R audio signal to produce a mono signal or to use a stereo amplifier for the sound output.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
