first off this is not to do with computers. i just got a new dvd player its song 5 disc thing and have decided since its 5 disc i will replace my 5 disc cd aswell and just use the new player and im not sure on my cable situation. ok i have the usual yellow (video) and the red and white audio plugs, the s-video cable, a digital cable thing and a component video with the colours green,blue and red colours. i know i dont need the digital plug thing cause my amplifier is pretty old so it wont have that plug. but i do need to hook up the dvd player through both the tv and amplifier so i can you the cd player while the tv is off so i have put the red and white auidio cables from the amp to the dvd and left the yellow one empty. for the video and sound through the tv i assume i have to go out and buy a cable with the green blue and red colours and im hoping this works. is that correct?? and one last thing what do i do with an s-video cable? do i use it instead on the normal video cable??? thanks.
