Are you using an AV to HDMI Video Converter Adapter?

No, just running rv's to HDMI with direct connectors.

Does the DVD player have a HTMI output ? I went straight from the DVR to the TV with a HTMI cable . Their are 4 HTMI Inputs on my TV. The bottom one underneath is # 1 , the side ones are 2,3,4 . Rear TV is still on original inputs . We had all Blue ray DVD s that would not play in the Jensen Radio . Yesterday we added a Garmin RV760 GPS . We will abandon the Jensen when I figure out what to with the back up camera . Side camera shows less that the mirror . The weather Alert radio keeps turning on the radio at the slightest bad weather . ( usually in the middle of the night ) . Looks like it took me longer to get rid of the Jensen radio than most .

Maybe I'm not following - but RCA is an analog connection and HDMI is digital. You can't hook one up to another without some sort of Analog to Digital doohickey in between.

Maybe you've got one.
If not, then I sure as heck wouldn't buy one.

New DVD players, with native HDMI, are $25.
I just grabbed a nice Blu-Ray with bells and whistles from Walmart, on clearance, for $50.

I buy my HDMI cables from eBay. Two footers were 3 or 4 bucks, I think.

Sorry if this isn't helping...

Thanks for the suggestions. It sounds like the blue ray dvd is the way to go. Will try to find an inexpensive one today!

It's just my opinion, but I think so. I was walking Walmart last night and Blu-Rays were $59 to $100. If all you want to do is watch DVDs, then the less expensive ones are fine.

The more expensive ones have video streaming built-in.

Try looking on e-bay. Some are refurbished, here's one for $39 with free shipping.
