How to Connect an LCD Digital TV to a DVD/VCR Player
A DVD/VCR combo unit occupies about half the space of two individual components and connects in essentially the same way. Two composite audio-video cables with RCA-type plugs are needed to connect the combo unit to an LCD digital TV set, using a pair of inputs and outputs on the television to play back DVDs and VHS tapes or to record programming on the VCR. Each cable is equipped with a trio of color-coded plugs on each end for fast connections.
Things You'll Need
- 2 composite AV cables
Turn off the LCD television and the DVD/VCR.
Connect one composite AV cable from the jacks labeled "Composite IN" on the back of the TV to the output jacks on the back of the DVD/VCR. The yellow, white and red plugs connect to the matching color jacks on each piece of equipment.
Hook up the second composite AV cable from the "Composite OUT" jacks on the LCD TV to the input jacks on the DVD/VCR combo. This connection sends audio video signals to the VCR for recording to a VHS tape.
