Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Trying to hook up my DVD APEX AD1201 to the television

I just received DISH NETWORK and am happy with it, but now I would like to get my DVD player hooked up again and am having trouble. I called the tech support at DISH but they were not very nice or helpful and I am one of these persons that needs to be led hand by hand . He did say to undo the coaxial cable from the back of the television and hook it into the dvd player, but that is not feasible as there is no hook up for a screw in type cable hook up. So now what do I do? I do have the DVD player on top of the television and it is plugged in but that is it. I do not know what or where to go now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I did buy a RF modulater for my television in my bedroom which is very very very old and that worked great when I had it hooked up but then I was also on calbe television at the time. Now I decided to move the dvd player to the main tv in the living room but do not have a clue what to do. I did not have to use the modulator in the living room. If I rehook up the modulator in the bedroom again, can I still use the dvd player ? I am sure it is probably a very simple fix for all this, but after reading the manual, I am still at a loss. Thanks for any help. Would sure like to see all my dvds again. LOL.

DVD players don't support coaxial connections, the coax cable either goes into the digital receiver or the TV.
If you have a scart lead, connect it to the DVD player and the back of the TV.
All you have to do then is flick through the AV or signal channels to pick up the DVD player and watch your movies

kind regard

Please check at back of DVD Player and find 3 Output terminals, Yellow for Video out, Red & White for Audio out,
Hook up Composite video cable (RCA 3 pin cable) on same colors on dvd player and put other end terminals of cabel at back of Tv in AV input-1 or 2.
Select AV Input of TV by remote and play dvd player. Picture and sound would be there.
Good Luck.

Sir,

Oftentimes some of the capabilities of these cable or sat receivers are disabled. You can try calling your service provider and asking.

Otherwise, you could buy a switcher. You can connect 2-4 components to the switcher and then connect it's output to the TV. If you truly have an old TV with only a screw-type RF cable connector and not even the red/white/yellow plugs for audio/video input, you should also buy an RF modulator. Ideally, buy something that combines these two items, such as the Magnavox M61151, which is less then $29 at Amazon


thanks
goodluck

If you have HD TV it is best to hook up the DVD player separately.

The easiest way to connect this is to find the cable going from the receiver to the TV and disconnect it from the TV. Connect this cable to the back of the DVD player where it says "in" or "input".
Next take another cable and connect it from the DVD player output to the TV. Make sure your TV set is tuned to the correct channel and input and you're all set. If you need further assistance please reply here and I will see to it this gets resolved.

Try the steps below these processes are called a power scans, there is a different type for any equipment needed. This should take 5-6 minutes per item to program.

For DVD/VCR's:
1.) Press and hold the correct VCR/DVD button (about six seconds) until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
2.) Press 222 pound (#) then record three times.
3.) With the desired equipment on, press and hold the VCR/DVD button until all mode button backlights illuminate (about 3 seconds), then release.
4.) Press and release the Power button.
5.) Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
6.) Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.

For TV's:
POWER SCAN
1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #)
2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once.
3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).

For any other equipment:
Power Scan AUX
1.) With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct AUX button until all mode button backlights illuminate (about 3 seconds), then release.
2.) press 0 for a TV, press 1 for a VCR/DVD, press 2 for any other device, then press *.
Press and release the large red Power button.
3.) Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
With any of these methods verify the code works by trying several different functions for that equipment.

I don't have the original control remote for Apex Ad-1201 DVD player. I would like to use my Universal Remotes: Radio-shack USA "flag" 4-IN-ONE Remote and / or RCA 312W three component remote. I got the codes from the manuals but my DVD player doesn't work or turn off (only ejecting; open and close) with pause button. Could I get a possible code (s) for these Universal Remotes?

When we watch a dvd movie our dish network symbol floats around in the background. I have contacted dish, said not their issue contact sylvania


Hello, this is Dan Busa with DISH Network Customer service, What I would check is the cable coming from the receiver to the tv make sure you only have one set. If you only have one set coming from the box, check if it goes into the DVD player. If it does, hook the receiver up separately and it should work okay.

How do i install a dvd player with dish network


Hello, if your receiver and tv are HD you want this hooked up separately to get the best picture. If you just want it hooked up to standard definition then take the cable going from the receiver to the tv and connect it from your receiver to your DVD then connect one from your DVD to your tv.

If you have HD TV it is best to hook up the DVD player separately.

The easiest way to connect your DVD player with your TV, is to find the cable going from the receiver to the TV and disconnect it from the TV.
Connect this cable to the back of the DVD player where it says "in" or "input".
Next take another cable and connect it from the DVD player output to the TV. Once you've done this make sure your TV set is tuned to the proper input or source. Your DVD's should play when the receiver is off, however, you'll probably need your DVD player on to get the DISH signal.
