Not sure. We have a Acesonic multi format player, dgx-210. Tv is a sony xbr-65a1e
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Our denon receiver is a avr-x2400h

You need a set of Red,Blue,Green RCA cables from the same colored jacks on the Karaoke machine DIRECTLY into the "Component Video" jacks on the SONY TV in order to get picture from the Karaoke machine on your TV.

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question

Leave the Audio (Red and White) cables where they are connected on the Denon (this will still produce your sound), and then change the SONY'S INPUT to "Component" and you'll then have the video from the player on the TV.

The tv and receiver is brand new. The karaoke player is about 5 years old. We're starting to think we need a player with hdmi connection, or a converter.

Are you able to read my replies???

There is just an hdmi connection on tv - no input components

Hang on.

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question

The TV certainly does have an Input for components- it's labeled "VIDEO IN" and is a single small round hole. Included with the TV is an adapter that has component RCA plugs that you use in this jack to connect NON HDMI equipment. Let me know if you're still stuck.

I'm able to read your replies. I was just typing over your responses -too quickly. Sorry.

That's okay- no worries.

We don't find an adapter. Would it be something we'd have to buy separately?

No, it should have come with the TV. Is the TV brand new- is the box still there??

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
tv is brand new. Box is out in the trash.

The adapter is shown on page 12 of the manual below (it was likely taped on the inside of the styro-foam in the package). It's actually red, white and yellow (not green. blue and red), so you would use the YELLOW video connection on the back of the player.

I looked the box - nada. Then looked at the fine print in the manual, and this adapter is "not included". We will buy one tomorrow, and hopefully the problem will be solved. Thanks.

Okay, I couldn't find the adapter when I searched solely for it online, and I know LG and Samsung provides them with the TV (I had assumed Sony did also). So, anyhow- that is how you connect non-HDMI devices to the TV, so once you have it, then simply use the video plug on the Karaoke machine and you'll be good to go.
