I need to make correction to #1 above. I realized after posting the above questions that the LCD TV has a "component connection RGB while the DVD player only had either S video OUT and Composite OUT with Yellow (video) and two others for audio. The TV requires an RGB or HDMIconnection. I also had another Magnovox DVD and this has the RGB OUT with 3 cables PLUS two Audios--red and whitle. I will need to find some RGB cables to hook this other DVD player up...I am sure it will now work. I will geet back and post the results but for now consider Question #1 answered. Thanks...
