Question about Directv D12-300/100 DTV Receiver

White lines on screen after reconnecting Directv D12-100 Box to TV

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?

SOURCE: how to hook up a

Hello.
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.
Regards.
Russ.

How to connect HDMI set top box to analogue VCR and then to Digital tv to record


Most set top boxes with HDMI also have a yellow video out and white audio out for connection to a VCR or DVD recorder. Connect these two RCA cables to the VCR's yellow and white INPUTS for recording. Set the VCR to LINE input. For VCR playback, connect yellow video and white audio OUTS from VCR to your TV's yellow and white INPUTS. Select this input on the TV set.

What's your problem?NO MANUAL FOR 52" sHARP


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.

That depends on the connections your Sony TV has. If it has only the coaxial connector (the cable looks like this: http://www.w-l-t.org/Pix/Coax%20w-F%20connector.jpg), then you'll connect a VCR to that, and then the blu-ray player to the connections on the VCR using the composite cables (yellow, red, white). Switch the VCR to channel "L" or "Line" (usually below channel 2), and it should pass the video through to the television. Of course, if the TV itself has the yellow, white, and red connectors, you should just be able to connect the Blu-ray directly into that.
Also, it may be possible to connect your cable box as an intermediary like I just described with the VCR, depending on your model of cable box.

For a standard VCR which is what most people have, all you need to do is connect a yellow RCA cable for video from the yellow output jack on the cable box rear panel to the VCR's yellow video input jack on its rear panel. Next connect a white RCA audio cable from the cable box white RCA output jack to the VCRs white RCA audio input jack. You can record a cable show by selecting the LINE input on the VCR and selecting the TV show on the cable box.

Now for playback, connect the VCR to your TV. Connect a yellow video cable from the VCR's yellow output jack to the TV's yellow video input jack. Same for the white audio connection. Select on the TV, the source input for the VCR. Its not complicated and you should not need any other devices for a standard setup with a digital cable box and vcr.

How do I hook up a daewood vcr to a TV through a Direct TV


If you are trying to connect a VCR to your television and still have Directv, this is the way to do it. Disconnect your Directv receiver from your television, Then connect the VCR to the television either through coax or RCA cables. If using the coax cable connect the out to tv on the VCR to the television. If using RCA cables connect the RCA OUT to the television AV1 connection. Once that is done, connect tha Directv receiver to the VCR using either coax or RCA cables. the Directv receiver only has RCA outputs so, if using RCA cables connect to VCR in. Remember that in order to see the Directv the VCR needs to remain on and it must be on the channel line in. If using coax cable connect to the VCR where it says in from antenna. Remember that if using this method your VRC does not have th remain on to view Direct. If you're trying to record Directv, then your VCR need to be on the same channel as the Directv output channel either channel 3 or 4. If trying to record Directv using RCA connections the VCR needs to be on the AV settings. If you have any futher questions please feel free to call me at (361)510-0339

Try to use your directv box with a different A/V connection to the TV and see what happens?
EX. If you have a basic directv box using coaxial cable connection,try to use RCA(yellow,red/white) cable to a RCA input behind the tv.

How to hook my directv to digital input to lcd tv j32l637


I don't know what flat screen tv you have,but you must be aware of the coaxial input behind the TV.It could be analog input,digital input and OUTPUT!!
Anyway,if you connect your basic directv box to your digital input,it will not serve you any purpose to get HD channels and you don't have the HD directv box.The TV will not display digital channel for you because if you use coaxial input to TV,you should be under either channel 3 or 4 and be sure either channel had been saved under memory.In order to change channels,you will need to change it from your directv box.
JUST LIKE a VCR connect to TV.TV will be under channel 3 or 4,and you will change your channels from the VCR.Don't forget to scan all the channels from the VCR!
