Hello Barbara,

I'm Joe, thank you very much for choosing FixYa for your technical support needs.

I would be pleased to provide whatever assistance you need with hooking up your Direct TV receiver to your TV, or with hooking up your DVD player to your TV.

In order to provide you with the proper specific detailed instructions, could you please COMMENT back here to this page and provide the exact model numbers of your TV, your DVD player, and your Direct TV receiver, since exact connection instructions can vary between different models.

Normally the model numbers are printed on a label on the back panel of each device.

You can use the POST A COMMENT button near the bottom of the screen to post this additional information and I will receive it right away. Then I can proceed to look up and provide you with the appropriate User Manuals for each device and also the necessary instructions to hook them up.

Thank you very much, I look forward to hearing back from you and assisting you further.

Joe.

    Another helpful piece of information you can include in your comment is what types of cables you have or which you plan on using to connect the systems together.

    There are a few different types with HDMI being the very best.

    If you aren't sure which type of cables you have or don't have any purchased yet, then don't worry, I will provide suitable recommendations.

    Thanks.

    Joe.

    Here is a link to a short video turorial about the various types of cables used in hooking up home entertainment video equipment

    This should give you a better understanding of basic cables and connection types on your equipment.

    Just click on the blue underlined and highlighted link below and a new internet browser window will open automatically and allow you to watch the video:

    If you do have an HDMI cable you can use to connect the Direct TV Receiver to the TV, then here is another link to a short video that you can watch which demonstrates that particular connection process:

    Always make sure your TV and Receiver are turned off before connecting any cables. Then once the connections are made, you can turn the equipment back on to test it.

    As I stated earlier, without knowing exactly which equipment models you have, I wont be able to provide customized instructions for your particular set-up.

    I am standing by to provide you with additional assistance once I have that information.

    If I do not hear back from you in the next few days, I will post a set generic instructions which hopefully will be enough to enable you to get your system operational.

    Sorry about the delay Barbara, I was looking for your clarification comments on the other question page. I didn't realize that you posted this information here in a brand NEW question box. No problem though, this will work just fine too. I will post the information on both question pages so there is absolutely no confusion.

    First of all here are the links to each of the USER'S MANUALS for your particular system components:

    SHARP AQUOS TV - MODEL # LC52D64U:

    http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForH...




    SONY DVD PLAYER - MODEL # DVP-S530D:


    http://www.docs.sony.com/reflib/docget.a...





    MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER MODEL # MWD2206:


    http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/c...




    To view the Owner's Manuals with Operating Instructions for each device, just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and highlighted text just above. Each one of them will open a new web browser page for you automatically and allow you to view the information indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.



    You did not mention exacly what model of DirecTV receiver you have, so first of all, I will just give you the generic instructions for connecting that device to your TV using an HDMI cable connection.





    DIRECTV CONNECTION TO TV



    Make sure your TV and DirecTV receiver are turned off before making any cable connections.

    Now connect the COAX cable from the satellite antenna to the COAX IN jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.

    Now connect one end of an HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.

    Then connect the other end of that HDMI cable to the HDMI INPUT 5 jack on the back of your TV.

    See page 10 of your TV's USER MANUAL for a detailed labelled diagram of the rear input connections on your TV.



    Here also is a link to a short video which demonstrates this basic HDMI connection procedure:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7P-yayRJ...




    If you want to test your system at this point, you can. Just plug in the power cords to the DirecTV receiver and your TV, then turn them both on.

    In order to see the output from the DirecTV receiver, you will need to select the INPUT 5 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.

    See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.

    Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 5 on the TV display screen.

    At this point you should be getting an input signal from the DirecTV Receiver on your TV.

    That completes the DIRECTV to TV connection portion of the system hook-up procedure.




    SONY DVD PLAYER CONNECTION TO TV



    Your Sony DVD player should have come with an S-VIDEO cable and set of RCA cables (yellow / red / white ) included.

    Here is a link to a picture of an S-Video cable in case you need to see one:


    http://amazingbestsellerstore.tk/wp-cont...





    And here is a link to a picture of a set of 3 color RCA cables:


    http://www.cameratron.co.za/images/produ...




    Connect one end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO OUT on the back of your SONY DVD player.

    See page 8 of the SONY DVD Player manual.

    Then connect the other end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO INPUT 2 terminal on the back of your TV.

    Now take colored RCA cables and one end of the red and the white cables into the LINE OUT (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of you SONY DVD Player.

    Then take the other ends of those cables and plug the red and white plugs into the INPUT 2 (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of your TV.

    In order to see the output from the Sony DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 2 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.

    See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.

    Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 2 on the TV display screen.

    At this point you should be getting an input signal from the Sony DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc inserted.

    This completes the SONY DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.



    MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER TO TV CONNECTION



    I will describe the connection procedure using the basic 3 color (yellow / red / white) cables which were included with the unit at purchase.

    COMPONENT VIDEO cables are also a slightly higher quality option but would have to be purchased by you separately.

    Take one end of the 3 color RCA cables and insert the colored plugs into the corresponding colored VIDEO OUT and AUDIO (L / R) OUT connections on the back of the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player.

    YELLOW cable plugs into the VIDEO OUT connector.

    RED and WHITE cables plug into the AUDIO (L / R) OUT connectors.

    See page 7 of the MAGNAVOX manual, METHOD 1.

    Now take the other ends of the 3 color RCA cables and plug them into the corresponding colored INPUT 1 connections on the back of your TV.

    YELLOW cable plugs into the INPUT 1 - VIDEO IN connector.

    RED and WHITE cables plug into the INPUT 1 - AUDIO (L / R) IN connectors.


    In order to see the output from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 1 mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.

    Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 1 on the TV display screen.

    At this point you should be getting an input signal from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc or tape inserted and playing.

    This completes the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.

    Recording content on the VCR from an outside source will require additional connections which are described in detail on page 6 of the MAGNAVOX manual.


    This completes the most basic hook up of your entire system using the cables which were supplied stock with each piece of equipment. As I stated, other options are available for purchase and the instructions for connecting these types of cables are all in the various OWNER'S MANUALS provided above.



    Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.


    I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.


    Joe.

How to hook up to directv receiver and toshiba dvr620


s-video to s-video cable looks to be the best option here. Plus you'll need two phono to two phono cable for left/right audio.

I assume you want to make a dvd/vhs copy of the footage on the DirectTV receiver.

There has got to be a way


I have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver. After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using this hookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv as usual...Now plug rca cables(red, yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directv receiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavox player...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that's ok) Now hook up up the dvd player to the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if your tv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available at walmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connections to the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)

I just had directv hooked up, I have a dvr receiver, I was told I did not have enough hook ups on the back of my tv, so therefore, I went and bought a switch or combiner. Now, how do I need to run the...


Newer directv hd receivers must connect to the av input (yellow,red, white) connections on the back/front/side of your tv. If your tv only has one of these av inputs then you will need an RF modulator for your dvd player. You will connect the (yellow,red, white) connections from the dvd player to the rf modulator and then connect the tv out on the rf modulator to the tv rf jack ( the silver threaded barrel on the back of the tv) Tune your tv to channel 3 to watch a dvd and then back to the av input channel for the directv receiver.

Hook up dvd


Found this on http://www.satelliteguys.us/directv-forum/118015-hooking-up-dvd-player.html,

The Directv box should have at least two sets of out puts. You did not say what receiver you have and if the dvd is a player only of a recorder so its hard to say how to connect it.

If you have a dvd player only then take the output from the dvd player and connect it to you tv's second input, HDMI or component or what ever is a match between the two unites.

If you have a DVD-Recorder that you want to record programs from the directv receiver then take the second output from the receiver and connect it to the input on the DVD-Recorder and connect the output as above.

Hope this helps.
