Connecting DVD player to Viewsonic TV
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.
