There are adaptors. I bought a Philips brand that allows any dvd player to be connected to any television. You connect the RCA cables to the Philips adaptor from the DVD player then you connect the Philips adaptor to the rf input of the television with a coaxial cable.
Newer TVs have multiple inputs. Mr Mark is correct, you generally do not daisy-chain Audio/Video units unless you are using a recording device. Cable box to Cable input on TV. DVD player to other inputs.
Let's get some terminology out of the way. Specifically for the Mintek DVD-1600. There are NO inputs.
Coaxial Audio out (orange) is for digital audio only. Usually connects to stereo reciever for Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Not for TV.
S-Video (black w/4 small holes, 1 square) is for better quality video than composite. Use this to TV instead of Composite if you have a S-Video input on your TV.
Composite (Yellow) Older video input type. Works just fine. Connect to TV.
Audio Output ( Red & White) for analog stereo only. Goes to TV. Red=right, White=left channels.
Component Video Out (Blue, Green White) is the newest video output type in this unit. Better than S-Video. Use this option if available on your TV instead of S-Video or component.
Purchased a newer HDMI DVD player,(Sony)as well as found that I do need the video cables.Also found that I need to change the input to component on the DVD player by using a regular coxial to at least get a display from the DVD player had I kept the older one.
Hey smittybd, According to information provided by the manufacturer, this specific model DVD player is only able to provide upconverted 1080i images via its HDMI output and a maximum 480p resolution using its component connectors. Please keep in mind that while component cables are able to support 1080i and 1080p resolutions, not all hardware (TV's and DVD players) will support these resolutions through component connections. If you're having difficulty locating a model that specifically supports 1080i resolution images through its component connections, you may wish to try visiting individual manufacturers' websites for more information. Some companies (such as Sony) will provide detailed information regarding what each type of connection is capable of in their owner's manual documentation. Hope this helps you out.
