How to Connect a DVD Player to a TV Through a Cable or Satellite Box

Save

Modern televisions feature many input ports. However, older televisions generally only have one input port. This can be a hassle if there are multiple devices to be attached to the television, such as DVD players, cable boxes, home theater units, and video game systems. Fortunately, the hassle can be skipped by connecting one device through another using the input and output ports on the back of the devices.

  • Connect the yellow, white, and red AV cables from the AV OUT ports on the back of the DVD player to the AV IN ports on the back of the cable box.

  • Connect another AV cable from the AV OUT ports on the back of the cable box to the AV IN ports on the back of the television. If using an HDTV, use an HDMI or component cable.

  • Turn on the television and the cable box. Ensure that the television is displaying the media from the cable box.

  • Turn on the DVD player.

  • Press the "Input" or "TV/VCR" button on the cable remote to switch to the DVD player's input.
