How to Connect an Olevia TV

By Greyson Ferguson

Olevia is a consumer electronics company that produces a range of high-definition televisions with multiple connection ports. These ports allow you to hook up video sources to the TV (such as a DVD player, cable receiver, or video game system).There are several different connection types, providing different levels of video quality.

Make the Connection

Step 1

Plug an HDMI cable into the "HDMI Out" port on the device from which you want to send the HD audio/video signal. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the "HDMI In" port on the Olevia TV. Power on the TV, push "Input," on the TV or remote, and then select "HDMI" to view the content. HDMI provides the best video and audio quality.

Step 2

Attach a component cable to the "Component Out" port on the device you want linked to the TV. This cable has a series of three connectors (green, red, and blue) at each end. Insert the other end of the cable into the "Component In" ports on the Olevia TV. Power on the TV, then press "Input" on the remote control or TV. Select "Component" and the video content appears on the screen. Component connections provide excellent high-definition video quality.

Step 3

Insert an S-Video cable into the "S-video" out port of the device you want connected with the Olevia TV. Plug the opposite end of the S-video cable into the "S-video In" port on the television. This sends the video signal between the two devices. Power on the television, select "Input," then choose "S-video." S-video provides higher-quality video than RCA, or composite, connections.

Step 4

Attach RCA (composite) audio/video cables to the "Video Out" jacks on the equipment you want linked to the TV. The yellow connector is for video, and red and white are for audio. Plug the other end of the cables into one of the "Video In" jacks on the television. Power on the TV, press "Input," then select "Video" and programming appears. Composite cables provide the least video quality.

Step 5

Insert a coaxial cable into the coaxial "Out" jack of the device you want attached to the TV. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Ant" jack on the Olevia TV, then power on the television. Set the input to "tuner" or "antenna."

Tips & Warnings

  • Since component and S-video cables carry only a video signal, an audio cable must be used in conjunction with them. Connect an RCA audio cable to the red and white jacks on both the TV and source device.
