    I am trying to hook up a DVD player to a television that has no scart, no AV sockets. All it has is the old style VHS connector is it possible and does anyone know the name of the connector I am looking for it has a flat at the bottom and 7 other pins in a star shape.

    this is a blast from the past

    I know what you mean I used to use them to hook up two videos in the 80's

    However no I do not remember

    Could I be rude and suggest a new TV even if it is for the shed or whatever

    Really stretching my memory here and I could be totally wrong, but "DIN" springs to mind, but not sure etc. :)

    Thanks guys, I already have a DVD player hooked up in my lounge. I just won a Sony Picot in a Xmas Draw. There is 4 TV's in the house already. The TV for the Picot is a big old Ferguson TX thought it would be a good idea to try and hook up the new DVD Player to it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Best bet could be your local TV repair shop as they are likely to know what you are looking for. Or a cable specialist like Lektropacks Might be worth posting a pic of the connector.

    I assume the case is circular? If so I think it's a 7 pin Din and probably supports some kind of RGB connection. I seem to remember something similar when I had an Atari 800!

    Looks like i'm wrong as there is no flat bit on these pictures
    here

    Sorry DaveP
