Re: I want to run my DVD player through my DVR player.
Dish network receiver only have outputs. There are not any inputs on the receiver that would allow this but if your dvd player has an iput source you could run the Dish receiver to it and then the dvd player to the TV. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Thanks for using FIx Ya and let me know if I can further assist you.

Hi, In order to record from VCR to DVR You need to connect "VCR audio/video output RCA jacks " to" DVR 's Audio / Video Input RCA jacks.. .. use either "RCA analog (red/white+ yellow ) " or
"optic " cable.(any standard optical cable )..if exist .optic is the best way to
connect it..Remember your VCR 's "OUT" goes into" IN "of DVR .. pls also
remember,wherever you connect your VCR on your DVR ,you should switch
the source selector accordingly to correspond to the connection on the
back... Now you can record anything on DVR which played in VCR .. Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
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.
leave coaxcil cable on dvr ;unplug the colored wires from the dvr output and plug them into the output of the recorder;plug a second set of colored wires into output of dvr and into input of recorder;be sure to set recorder input to proper setting on recorder (input one or two) now you should be able to record what your dvr plays or just use it as a dvd player ; you will need to have all three on to watch tv though.
You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.
Well this could be a loaded question but what type of cables you using?? are there a red one a white one and a red one?? Ok then the yellow one goes to the video output on the DVD player and the other end goes to the video input of the tv. The red white cables are your right and left audio cables and red goes to red and white goes to white on the tv as well as on the DVD NOW make sure the cable on the dvd player are on the output!!!!!! Good Luck
