Magnavox DVD/VCR combo units allow you to enjoy any movie in your collection, regardless of the format, on your Vizio TV. The DVD/VCR features a HDMI input to transfer the audio and video signals to your Vizio in a single cable. The HDMI interface carries both high-definition and standard definition signals so you will not have to worry about the changing the settings between VCR and DVD mode.


Step 1

Locate the "HDMI" port on the back input panel of the Vizio TV. The port looks like a thin rectangle and will have the letters "HDMI" above it.
