It does have a base stand. What they mean is a piece of furniture that it will sit on to not have it on the floor. And it doesn't come with a wall mount kit.

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.

Mine came with a round piece of plastic and 4 screws to attach the TV to the included base/stand. The plastic piece and the scews would be completely necessary if you are going to use the stand. If they are missing, and you want to use the base/stand you need to get them. If you are asking about wall mounting hardware...there is nothing included for that.
