This article is going to show you how to hook up or connect a DVD Player to a TV step by step.

Hooking up a DVD player to your TV can be accomplished with several different ways depending on the type of inputs that are available on the television that match the outputs on the DVD player. But basically, it does not matter if you also have a cable box or satellite receiver connected to your television, since a DVD player is a separate connection that does not go through these devices. You can follow the general steps to learn how to hook up a DVD player.

Step 5 Refer to the user manual to change the language display on the DVD screen, if necessary.
