I had the cord that has the red-white-yellow ends on the both sides. My dvd/VHS player has the red and white and yellow holes I can stick them in. But my TV doesnt have the red and white and yellow holes. So I bought a cord that has a hdmi end with the other end to have the red and white and yellow. Cause I could just stick the hdmi end to my tv, then stick the red and white and yellow end to my dvd/VHS player. It didnt work either. I even changed the input channels on the TV so many times. Didnt help. Do I need an extra cord or what?
