If not, then both the computer and the player would have to connect to the same HDMI imput...wouldn't it?

EDIT: OOPS! I missed your quote. I will have to recheck the Walmart site...I missed that somehow.
Yeah, the "computer connections" should be VGA or DVI, but they don't specify. You might just need a cable and you'd be set.

With the DVD player, you might be SOL. The "Built-in ATSC digital / NTSC analog tuner" that the website mentions would be your conventional COAX input. If your DVD player has antenna in, you might be able to run the antenna to the DVD, then the DVD to the HDTV all through COAX.

Might not look that great, but it should work.
