Let’s take a DVD / Blu-Ray player with HDMI, AV, VGA, Component and SCART outputs.
HOW TO CONNECT AV – Connect yellow from external device to TV set for picture. Choose the correct AV channel – Note the AUDIO LEFT and RIGHT out needs to be connected to the Input of the TV set.
If there is a 5.1 CHANNEL OUTPUT on the DVD / Blu-Ray player then the AUDIO (FL & FR) must be connected.
HDMI – HDMI is a single cable that transmits Audio and Video together from the external device to the TV set.
VGA – from the external device to the TV set only picture will be displayed – to receive sound you will need a 3.5mm stereo jack connect from the external device to the TV set.
