get component (red green blue) and composite/rca (red/white) and hook them from the DVR to the TV

 

OUTs of the DVR and color coded...

 

INs of the TV and color coded...

 

Tune your TV to the Component input selection

Just as Bob said.

 

But it's not hard to mix up the two red ones if they are grouped together.

 

Before you spring big bucks for those locally, you should know that you can buy the whole set at many places online for under $10. Under $5 if you can live with 3 ft cables.

One of my favorite places for inexepensive (but reliable) cables of all types is MONOPRICE.COM
