I just bought a new DVD player cheap cheap in the boxing day sales.
I get home and I start setting it up and I'm doing the plug the plugs into the plug thing.. yellow plug red plug white plug etc you know what I'm talking about. The audio in and video out or whatever it is. You know.
My tv has NO plugs at the back. I lie. There is one. It's for the aerial. There is another cord that comes out of the tv and goes to the power supply.
I've been told some old tv's don't have those audio and video outlets/inlets whatever they are. My tv isn't THAT old.. another friend of mine told me when the Playstations first came out and lots of peoples old-school tv's didnt have the outlets for the audio/video there was an adapter you could buy that had the plugs on it... I've rung up Dick Smith and hounded them for any kind of an adapter that would work but they've told me there is 'no such thing.'
I've ALSO been told (everyones an expert you see) that if you get an old VCR you can run the audio video plugs through that, and plug the VCR into the aerial plug and it will work, but I don't actually own a VCR that works..
Any suggestions or help or wisdom would be greatly appreciated. The sight of my new DVD player that doesn't work on my stupid tv is quite depressing.
