Hooking up an RCA DVD player to a Humax DVD recorder makes it possible to dub copies of multimedia discs for playback on a TV. The simple colour-coded connections require two sets of composite audio-video cables with red, white and yellow plugs on each end. One set of cables connects the RCA player to the Humax recorder, while the second set transmits picture and sound from the Humax to the TV. Set-up takes only a few minutes.
