Other Outlet/Port Information:

  • Component: Component A/V cables are used for higher resolution and only work for the DVD side of your combo player.
  • S-Video: S-Video will give you better quality than basic video, but it's not as good as Component will. Only for the DVD player.
  • Analog Audio: This is for sound and is used with Component and S-Video.
  • Coaxial and Optical: These will both give you superior audio, you can connect them to your surround sound system. Keep in mind, optical is better than coaxial! 
  • Tuner: Allows you to get analog cable through your device and watch it on your TV.
  • Line In: Where you can connect a separate device and play it. (ex. a game console)
  • HDMI Out: This gives you best audio and video possible without using digital audio
