How can I plug in our DVD and Tivo units??
Check the owners manual and see what the input options are. You may only have one composite video RCA input (yellow for picture and red/white for sound), as most HDTV's are used with HDTV sources that use HDMI or component video (green/blue/red for picture and red/white for sound).
Also, many new HDTV's use adapters that connect to a small port on the HDTV and have the RCA connections on a dongle.
Here is an example of a composite video and stereo audio dongle:
As noted, an option is to get an external switch that you connect all your sources to and the output goes to the HDTV.
