Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first could you please also give me the dvd`s model number and the type of connection/cables you have in hand for this ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
memorex 2 cable red and white
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the player is not a recorder just a player
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
OK then I`ll start by saying that you will need a minimum of 3 cables for composite video .
That usually comes in a set of red/white/yellow plugs .
Do you have that handy or a spare cable to make it a total of 3 ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes i have a 3 plug also but have no idea where to plug in the back of tv
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it doesn't have the normal plug ins like my other sets
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
Do you have the adapters that came with this tv ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what type of adapter do i need
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i can get one at radio shack just don't know which one to get
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
Well , that is a problem now as I probably could find those for you online but I`d be surprised you would find those locally .
In any case I was about to suggest a HDMI connection which would really be the way to go anyway.
does that Memorex dvd player has a port called HDMI ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no but can i get a three to that type plug at radio shack
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
That would surprise me very much but you can give it a try .
In any case that is a composite type connection and possibly the worse picture quality you can get .
You can get a dvd player with HDMI port and HD picture for around $30 nowadays by the way .
That would eliminate the need for this cable .
Its up to you but again those are not standard AV cables , they usually come with the set and as you said , this is not a standard way of doing things .
You can still check with radio shack though
