What if I do not have any of these jacks on the back of my TV?

For those people who own an older TV set with only a rabbit-ears antenna connection or RF 75 ohm coax (cable TV) connection, and you want to hookup your DVD player, never fear, you can still do it but you will have to buy a device called an RF modulator. These boxes are available locally at your retail stores like Radio Shack or Wal-Mart. They cost about $20 and allow you to connect your DVD player with Composite Video jacks up to your older TV set.

With the switch to digital broadcast TV in 2009 you will also need a DTV converter box. Here is a hookup diagram showing how to connect DVD player, RF Modulator and TV. More on the switch to digital broadcast TV.

Need to add a VCR to the mix? This hookup diagram shows how to connect it all up. Set the VCR to channel 3 or 4 and select TV channels with the converter box remote.

For more information on RF modulators see RF Modulators and DVD Connections.

More options for video and audio connections.

If your TV has an S-Video jack, you can use a 4-pin S-Video cable instead of the yellow RCA video cable to connect your DVD player to your TV. If your TV has the three red, green, blue component video jacks, you can use a three cable (RCA) red, green, blue, component video connection instead of the S-video. Component video is better than S-video or composite video.

There are also DVD players now with another option for connecting video and audio. DVD players with a HDMI digital output jack can connect to a digital TV with similar input jacks. HDMI is digital video and digital audio all in one cable connection.

Blu-ray and DVD

Standard DVD has been around since 1997 and provides good video, but the newer Blu-ray disc movies provide up to 1080p video resolution. Blu-ray players also play standard DVD discs. Combining a Blu-ray player with a 1080p HDTV over a HDMI connection, you get the current maximum video crispness available. Colors are deeper and the newer audio is the best you can get. Blu-ray Disc movies are slowing replacing DVD. Blu-ray players can access movies from the internet, allowing you to skip the store trip and stream content directly to the home.
