Re: connecting to tv with directtv
The usual way to connect a dvd is via the scart socket as dvd players seldom have an rf output (aerial type output) if you tv does not have a scart there may be phono plugs usually marked red,white,yellow the yellow is video(picture) the other two red/white are audio left and right.

I have had the same problem at times. First try out a dvd or Blu Ray disc to see if you experience the same problem. Also check your connections to make sure they are connected properly.
If the problem is not present when playing a disc then check out your Directtv system. Try resetting your Directtv reciever first. If that doesn't work, check with Directtv to see if they can run diagnostics. It might be your satellite dish or the receiver.
I work for Memorex techsupport. Our number is 800-919-3647.
Please call the above number so that one of our customer service agents can troubleshoot the problem with you over the phone. They will have you double check the connections to insure the player is connected properly to the TV. In case you didn't know, you can't connect a DVD player to the DirectTV receiver.

Unless you still tune programs off the air from the TV tuner and an antenna - what possible TV program would come into the TV that the DirectTV box wouldn't already provide high quality sound and video for? You should run the audio from the DirectTV box to the receiver.
I'd first just hook up the DVD/VCR to the TV and get that working. I'm assuming all you need is the standard cable type connection. This will at least your 4 year old happy. Then you can experiment with the S cable. The S cable will give a cleaner signal from the DVD to the TV. then hook up audio and video cables from the Direct TV to the DVD input. The audio and video will be cleaner using S cables and audio and video cables, but stadard TV cable should get you going. You didn't mention what model DVD player you have. You may have to select the correct inout on the DVD for the Direct TV connection.
Make sure the cables that used to run from the satellite are still connected even though u dont have directv, the unit will still download any software updates it needs. if the dish is no longer available, wait until the dvr is trying to aquire satellite info before u hit the menu button. it will allow u to watch saved recordings while it searches for a signal. Also you can plug a dvd recorder to the unit and transfer recordings to dvd
I know you can copy to the VCR. but do not know if digital recording has any form of copyright protection. You can try to copy by connecting the outputs of the DVD TV to the inputs of the DVD player recorder.
