You will use component video cables. They come in threes and all they require you to do is connect the DVD output with the TV input and match the cable colors on both ends. They will be red, white, and yellow. The yellow is the video, and red and white are left and right audio. If your TV is too old to have stereo audio, only one (red or white) audio cable needs to be connected. It doesn't matter which. The yellow cable always needs to be connected.
Another option, but a slightly less common one, is to use a single AV cable to connect the two. The reason this is less common is because most newer TV's do not have AV input, and newer DVD players do not have AV output. If it does, however, this is the most simple, and you probably wish to take advantage of it, so you have a connection available when you purchase a newer unit which does not have AV.

Lol I used my standard AV cables for the component, and I used an adapter to plug the audio into my speaker ...
Check the cables for any frayed wires. Next, if ya have a extra dvd player lying around, try connecting it to the same tv, If it works, you know the connections on your TV are good. Second, try hooking the 1st DVD player up to a different TV, and see if that works.
If you haven't done so already try connecting a different DVD player (or some other device) to the same part of the television to see if there is color. You can also try changing the cables connecting this dvd player and the television. If there is color on another device then you know that the problem is with the DVD player. If there is color with the same DVD player when you have changed the cables then you'll know that they were the problem. If the television does not play in color no matter what (DVD player or tv channels or anything connected to the television with all different cables) then you'll know it is at fault.
HMMM. DVDs connect to Video, not channels. Your direct TV will be connected to Video In. I recommend connecting the DVD with Component or HDMI for best results. You select the DVD with 'Video' or 'Source' on your TV remote.
Please check the connection. If you are connecting the 3 RCA cables to DVD component input/output, you need another pair of RCA cables to connect to audio out (FL&FR rear of DVD player) and Audio in (L&R) in your TV set. Else connect 3 RCA cable in 1-Video out & 2 Audio out of DVD player and 1-Video in & 2 Audio-in of TV.
Your TV hopefully supportsw more then one unit connecting to it. if not you will need to use an input on one of your units (direct tv unit or DVD player) for the other unit. Example your direct tv is connected to your TV, on the back of your direct tv unit is a video /audio input. connect your dvd player to that input. on your direct tv remote or menu should be an option to use that input.
