Depending on the model of DVD player and the TV you are trying to connect it to you have various inputs and outputs.

If your have an HD (High Definition) DVD Player and a HD TV the best input to use is HDMI. Both device would have an HDMI interface whereby you could connect them together.

If you have a standard DVD Player you have usually 3 other input/output options, RCA, S-Video, and Component. Your RCA jacks are colored Red, Yellow, and White. Your S-Video is a larger circular jack with several pins. The Component cable has Red, Green, and Blue.

Of the three above the Component Cable connection is going to give you best picture quality. S-Video is second and RCA is third. You just need to match up the connectors on your TV and DVD and get the cable that accommodates the best picture quality. Again for clarification below are the interface options for best quality to poorest:

1. HDMI
2. Component
3. S-Video
4. RCA

Hope this helps.

I have a coby dvd player hooked up to my new Vizio television. I don't know why, but when I play movies on the dvd player, they only play in black and white. I don't even pretend to know anything...


Press N/P button on remote, if that dont work, go into the Setup Menu and do a DEFAULT. If either of those dont work, check to make sure your video cable is in the correct location.

If your in U.S., should always be on NTSC
If outside of U.S., you would select PAL

Problem wirings for Pioneer AVH-P6500DVD Car DVD Player


very easy fix. you can pay thirty bucks on ebay and buy the bypass kit or make it yourself. but the light green wire on the harness has to be hooked up to ground. just hook the light green wire to the chassie of the car and you will be able to see dvds all the time. If you want to buy the kit its not really needed I have a toggle switch on mine just for turning it on and off when I am driving. simple as putting a wire from your chassie of the car(Ground) and then the other from the unit(light green wire) to a switch. hooking it up from Supply to Acc on the switch.

Hooking it up correctly


If you hook up using the tuner in ILO you will lose digital signal to the HDTV (it will still go thru but only as analog) so... Use a splitter from the antenna coax to the "antenna in", then you can hook Ilo output to the tv inputs. You can watch/record analog through the ILO and still switch back digital non recording on HDTV thru its own separate tuner. Hook up the dvd player outputs to the ILO inputs(use the front ones is easiest) and then select SOURCE, pick corresponding inputs and enter. You can watch/record from other dvds that way but not from copyrighted ones, It will say protected content. I would only hook up dvd player temporarily to record from dvd player, then to watch dvd's just hook it up to HDTV. If you can select progressive scan on player to HD it might be even better picture but I don't have HDTV so I'm not sure how that works. Maybe more at this site: http://www.retrevo.com/support/CyberHome-DVR-1600MU-DVD-Players-manual/id/534ci862/t/2/ Someone says they are very similar recorders. The front covers are alike i know. Hope this helps.

Make my dvd work


 Did you hook up the wire harness correctly? Because you are not receiving power to the monitor. check these connections again. Maybe you have the wrong harness. Are you using the one from your car or DVD player? Did you splice the wires together? Do you have a correct color scheme to your vehicles wiring?
you may also need to bypass the monitor in order to view the screen while driving (if you're a rebel against johnny law)
