As TV and DVD playing reproduces sound, you have to check TVs tuner function first. Connect the TV to external areal by connecting areal via areal socket. Make an auto-tune function. Refer the user manual about how to make an auto-tune to local on-air program. Make sure that, the TV reproduces picture and sound normally. If it is correct, your TV is perfect in all respect. If not, the tuner to your TV should be replaced with same type and number.
Depending on your Satellite receiver's output type (i.e. HDMI or Component - Red, Green, Blue) you should connect to your tv's appropriate external inputs. Example: if you choose to connect the receiver via HDMI, then you use the SOURCE button on your tv and select the correct HDMI input you have connected your device to. If connected by Component (Red, Green, Blue) then use the SOURCE button to select the correct Component input, and so on.
Note: HDMI is the best connection type - you won't be able to access your receiver from the tv's built in tuner.
As above explanation, your VCR and DVD devices should be connected to your tv in the same manner - unless it is a combo unit (VCR & DVD in one), in which case this device can be tuned into your chosen tv channel (via the tv's tuner).
Note: if you have one of the latest SMART tv's, it should already have a built-in "Hi Definition" tuner which will allow you to watch free digital tv broadcast (DVB).
