I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help
good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code
from DVD back part:
yellow = video out
red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)
Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)
where to connect from TV screen.
Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .
Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code
RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)
then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)
once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)
now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:
RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.
