Just got a hd tv, cant figure out the proper connection on the back of the vcr/dvd so it will work have to put the tv on component 1 tried all kinds o color combo's (red to red white to white, etc) but cant get it right. Ant suggestions?
What model and manufacturer DVD/VCR combo are you using. if it has a HDMI port, you should buy a HDMI cable to your combo player than to your HDTV (most don't have this High Definition port.)
otherwise, it probably contains a composite port, connect the red to the red (Left) white to white (mono) and yellow to yellow (Video) than connect the wires to the matching port on your HDTV) then switch the input to AV or Composite.
If this fails, you need a coaxial cable.connect a coaxial cable to your player then to the coaxial port on your tv. change the input to "either Coaxial, Cable 3 or any input that sets it to coaxial input.

You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the Recorder's external inputs.
1. Make sure that the component you want to record from is connected properly to the Recorder. See page 14.
2. Press AUX repeatedly to select the external input to record from.
• AV1: Audio/Video Input mounted on back panel.
• AV2: Audio/Video Input mounted on front panel.
• DV: DV Input mounted on front panel.
On the back of the cinavision you have two groups of sockets. The yellow socket under Video out is picture. Red and white is sound. Connect them to the TV's yellow red white sockets marked Video In 1. This connection will give you picture and sound from either the VCR or the DVD deck.
There's a better picture quality available for DVDs only from the Component video out sockets (green red blue). Next to them is another set of audio sockets (red white). Connect all five sockets to the TV's input number 2. The colours match up. The picture from Component will be clearer and sharper.
On your Sharp TV remote, select Video 1 to watch VCR, and Video 2 to watch DVDs.
if your tv and dvd player are good yes might be you have a wrong connection. this is how a proper connection between your tv and dvd player.
first step in connecting a dvd player to a tv unit is determined what kind of connection you want to make, this usually determined to the outputs and inputs available on the dvd player and tv unit.
if you are using a plasma or a lcd tv usually the inputs are: composite inputs- lets you connect a component source like a dvd, vcr, and laser disc. component inputs - lets you connect another component source such as a dvd player. DVI-HDTV - lets you connect an HD receiver with a DVI output.
for example if you select the composite input what you need is a RCA plug which usually a 3 color plug.this picture is an example of commercial rca plug which usually the color yellow use for video and the red and white color for audio..
this is how you will connect those wire into your dvd player and tv unit.look for the component output jack of your dvd player .this picture is a sample of component output jack the color may vary depending tokind of brand or dvd player do you have.
now get your RCA plug then the yellow plug insert it to the Y or video out the red and white plug insert it to the left and right AUDIO out of your dvd player.
now look for the composite inputs jack of your TV unit then get the other end of RCA plug. the yellow plug must be insert it to the V label for video the red and white plug into L/R label which mean for audio input.
after you connect the 3 wires re check all the connections make sure the RCA plug is good and properly inserted to avoid loose contact which can affect the picture and sound quality.
now turn on your dvd player and tv unit.
make sure your tv unit is set to right input you want to use like for example you are using the video 1 input, you need to set to the remote controller into video 1 so that your dvd player must be recognized by your tv. enjoy watching i hope it will help you thanks for choosing fixya as your solution to fix you problem good luck.
The included cable with the red, yellow and white RCA connectors is a composite A/V cable. To connect this cable to the TV, you need a SCART-cinch adapter. Then use one of the SCART connections on the TV. Note: the SCART connection does not handle HD signal.
You will get a much better picture if you buy a different cable. Depending on your DVD player, get either an HDMI cable or a pair of cables - a component video and audio cable. (Both component and the audio cable will have RCA plugs at each end. The component video has 3 plugs - red, blue and green. The audio will have 2 plugs - white and red.) Both of these will carry HD signals. Most DVD players will have at least component video and composite video jacks; some have the HDMI output. Most DVD/VCR combinations will need the composite video for the VCR and the component video is optional for the DVD signal.
Unfortunately, size limitation of what could be attached prevents posting a connection diagram. Still, proposed connection scheme:
4250HDC's HDMI to Panasonic's HDMI 1 or 2;
4250HDC's VIDEO OUT to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 VIDEO;
4250HDC's AUDIO OUT to 2 pcs of RCA Splitters (shown below);
1 pair from the 2 splitters to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 R-AUDIO-L;
the other pair to Yamaha's LD/TV L & R;
GoVideo's LINE OUT VIDEO to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 VIDEO;
GoVideo's LINE OUT R-AUDIO-L to 2 more RCA Splitters;
1 pair from the 2 splitters to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 L-AUDIO-R;
the other pair to Yamaha's VCR 1 IN L & R;
to watch cable TV in HD quality, set Panasonic to HDMI 1 or 2 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 3 (or 4), then OK;
to hear cable TV programs on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to LD/TV;
to watch DVD or VHS, set Panasonic to Video 1 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 6, then OK;
to hear DVD or VHS on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to VCR 1;
to record cable TV programs, press GoVideo remote's TV VIEW button a couple of times to cycle through the signal sources or until Line 1 is displayed.
The use of the splitter shown below would effectively double the AUDIO OUT of the cable box and the DVD/VCR combo to feed both the TV and the stereo. Additionally, this would allow use of the cable box and/or the DVD/VCR combo with or without the Yamaha.
The Sony Bravia should have a number of component inputs, so you should be able to hook up the DVD directly to the TV. The only reason for hooking it up through the VCR would be to record a DVD on VHS... but that's for the birds--VHS is old technology.
Each component input on the back of the TV has a number. You then select to view the component you want by pressing the remote control button to change the display (it should show with one you're on... e.g., Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.).
1st off make sure that the dvd/vcr is hd compatible and if it is then connect the component cables to the input of the dvd/vcr and from the dvd/vcr output connect to tv. easy!! the only thing you wont be able to use as or in hd is the vcr portion of it.
