My old VHS/DVD Magnavox player attached to the Red,White,Yellow (hdmi) in the back of the TV and when I want to play it, I select "AV" from the on-screen "choice boxes" and it shows the DVD or Video. If your old dvd player doesn't have red, white, or yellow lines, then I guess the answer is no.

Yes it does. One for a stereo headset and one for normal audio (stereo) output to speakers or another sound device.
answered 1 year, 4 months ago
By
JSMReferee
answer 8
The SPDIF (digital coax, not optical) output provides 5.1 surround sound only when using the built-in tuner (antenna/cable input). For all other sources, the audio is 'dumbed down' to simple stereo (PCM).

For playing DVDs or BluRays or Roku, if you want surround sound you will need to connect the player directly to your sound equipment, bypassing the TV's audio connections.

This annoying design is, sadly, typical of most TV brands and models.
