One would assume that the av plugs on the wall would be a connection to the back of the DVD player

I tried the av outlet on the front of the DVD player directly to the tv with a separate cord that I had with no luck

The sound still played from the trailer speakers and not once from the tv

Ah, I misunderstood. I thought you meant next to the DVD player, not up by the TV. Yeah, the ones up by the TV should be connected to the output from the back of the player.

The one on the front of the player though, should have been an input.

I'd still pull the DVD and see what's connected back there. The wiring was all messed up on my Brother in law's trailer and they had those jacks wired into inputs on the back of his unit instead of outputs. Then they had a cable from those jacks to an input on the TV. So his unit was wired input-input instead of output-input. Beside that, they had an HDMI cable run between the DVD and TV, which did work right, so their messed up wiring was not only wrong, but also redundant.

Good catch!

Those sockets are INPUTS to the Gen 3 and not outputs for the TV.

Actually, based on the photo I'd say it's a Jensen. But there's a glare so it's hard to confirm.

Well, that makes checking easy...your output jacks are the bottom 3... and if you want sound out of the TV as well...you can run a new red/white jack cord off those open jacks and hook it to the input on the back of the TV only the lowest yellow jack should have a yellow plug already in it. If not...there's your problem.
If it does...I'd pull those wall A/V connections and insure you have the right connection there as well.

Just a suggestion then. Take a different and long RCA cable while you have the back of the radio still available to you. Replace the current yellow cord with the new cord plugged into the lowest yellow jack on the Magnadyne. Then take the other end and plug in to your TV 's Y jack. Pop in a DVD and see if you can see anything when you select the source on your TV.
If that doesn't do it... you could try it on a small TV monitor or game screen if you have one. If not... time to ship that puppy back to Magnadyne.
Hope something works for you!
