Jun 6, 2015
I want to hook up my dvd to my samsung smart tv . I have used an rca cable and the tv saya no signal. I only have one set of rca ports on tv so I bought rca to hdmi cables with the same results.
HDMI to RCA cables do not work. They are a breakout cable for very limited applications on PCs.
If your TV and DVD have composite video (yellow) and audio (red and white) RCA connections these should work. In some TVs the component video (3 RCA connections)
are shared with the composite video so you have to set up the TV menu for composite. If the DVD has component video out this will give you a better picture.

did you try turning on which component you are using on the tv ?
