  restless 12:19 26 Oct 2007

I have a goodmans portable dvd and purchased a slave screen to use along with it,cables needed arnt supplied and really confused as to what I need.

The slave screen came with a din lead but dvd player hasnt got this connection.

Portable dvd has..av out,av in

Slave screen has the yellow,white,red connections and the din socket.

Can it be connected?

This is from manual of dvd player

These is the type of cable you need to connect the monitor to DVD

Audio outputs/ inputs: 3.5mm

Video outputs/ inputs: 3.5mm composite

You sure it a din socket or a S video socket

S-Video Cable

If you buy the 3.5mm composite you don’t need an audio cable

Seeing that the DVD don’t have a s-video cable you only need to buy the 3.5mm composite cable

Think the 3.5mm composite cable would be best choice...but on checking the car power adaptor splitter that came with slave screen the end that goes into dvd player (dc9v in) dosnt fit,its too big?Sems to me like goodmans has made it as hard as possible to connect an extra screen other than using their own!
