Question about Televison & Video
Toshiba model SD 2960 DVD player - We are having problems hooking it up to our TV. Can walk us through the process?
It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):
1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.
2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.
3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)
