I'd use a component cable. That gives a far more stable connection than having a component to HDMI converter or indeed scart.

Amazon product
The three gang cable is used for video and the two gang for audio. Colours will match those on your player and TV.


no the tv dont have the yellow colour
Doesn't matter. Connect the same colour at both TV end and into the DVD player with the three video leads. Do the same for the two audio leads.

Yellow is a separate video connection (composite) and would give the worst quality

as above component connection is best red, green and blue for video then red and white for audio
