Question about Directv D12-300/100 DTV Receiver
I have a Directv D12-100 Box. It was connected to the TV through an old VCR. The VCR no longer works so I disconnected the cable from the VCR and reconnected directly to the TV. I'm getting sound and video reception, but there are white, horizontal, parallel lines showing on the screen and the video picture seems to be sort of washed out. I tried using a different cable to connect the D12-100 box to the TV, but I get the same results. How can this be fixed?
D12-100 box does not have an hdmi port what it does have is a problem the signal level coming out of the box is to high install a 4 way splitter between the box and the tv line out of the box to the in of the splitter any port out of the splitter to the tv the problem you are having is called ghosting

Make sure your internet connection is good, I had a wire go bad and drove us crazy, as a last result I changed it and the DVR came back to life. It needs internet to startup

SOURCE: how to hook up a
My name is Russ and I will try to help you with your problem.
But first let me explain you something about hooking up equipment to TV.
Several years ago it was very common practice to hook up cable box to the VCR/DVD combo and into TV. Some installers still doing it today. It is easy for installer and only 1 cable is running tovwards TV. Before it was necessity because bunch of direct view TV's had just one input.
This kind of installation have big disadvantages. When video signal runs into TV trough some other device it just getting worse, not better.Quality is reduced and you are getting much noisier and low contrast image than if you would run connection straight into TV.
Today's TV sets have several inputs and able to get direct unmolested signal from several sources such a DVD player, Satellite receiver etc.
You don't need to connect your DVD player to DirecTV box or wise-versa. They actually not even designed for such connections. All you need to do is run most high-quality connections straight into two different TV inputs and enjoy highest quality video and sound possible. You will need to change inputs on your TV screen when changing from Satellite to DVD, but it's OK, everybody does it.
If your DirecTV box have HDMI output, I would recommend use HDMI cable for highest quality possible. Next in line would be component (red, green, blue for video and red, white for audio cable and/or output) Both those connections a high-definition. For standard definition you can use composit (yellow for video, red and white for audio cable and/or output). Last and worst is regular antenna (RF) cable. You need those to run satellite signal from dish to receiver but after that I would recommend not to use it.
You should read your TV owner's manual, it should have diagrams and pictures of everything that I just explained to you.
