I need help in connecting my DVD recorder to my TV

Message 1 of 2

I have a verizon DVR, a Samsung smart TV and a older DVD video recorrder (Toshiba model D-R410KU).   I would like to connect the DVD video recorder to my TV but am not sure how to do it.  Note that the DVD recorder instructions state that the HDMI connection may not work as HDMI techonology was new at the time the DVD recorder was made.  I have attached pictures of the connection hookups.  Please explain how to do this in simple, detailed instructions.Samsung TVSamsung TVSamsung TVSamsung TVSamsung TVSamsung TVDVD recorder on bottomDVD recorder on bottomVerizon DVRVerizon DVRVerizon DVRVerizon DVR

Connect component out ports of DVD recorder to Component input ports on TV.

Use color coding.

Then just switch TV input between HDMI and Component depending on what you want to watch.
