I need connection advice for a new DVD Player and an old TV. I have a Comcast DVR and have just bought an LG DVD Player. My TV two jacks Audio/Video IN on the front and a coaxial connection on the back. The TV was previously configured with a DVD Recorder and had an S-connector for that purpose. The new DVD Player does not have an S-connector.
It is no longer necessary to record to the DVD, just play. What do I need to do to connect my TV to the DVD Player to get the video? The wiring diagrams on the Comcast website do not address my situation.
A new TV is not in my budget yet. Any help is appreciated.

S-video. Because the TV has no Left and Right Audio, the AV cable connects Audio L, Audio R and Video OUT on the DVR to Audio and Video IN on the TV. The cable has 2 connectors at one end and 3 at the other.
The cable from the DVR to the previous DVD recorder connected Audio L, Audio R, and S-Video to Audio L, Audio R, and S-Video. It is the S-Video connection that no longer applies to the new DVD player.
The DVD player has 2 ch Audio OUT, Video OUT (I’m pretty sure these are the correct ones), Ps, Pr, Y OUT, Digital Audio OUT (coaxial), 7.1CH Analog Audio OUT, and HDMI OUT. It’s the video piece that isn’t complete since the S-video from the DVR cannot connect to Video OUT on the DVD.
