Hi if U just want to play videos the easy way is to connect 3 RCA VIDEO CABLES colour coded red white yellow yellow is picture red & white r left & right audio from the output sockets of VCR to input of TV ..then set TV to AV INPUT good luck
the back of the vcr/dvd player will have some rca plugs that are red,yellow,white,they will be labeled out putthe yellow is video,the red and white are left and right audio,the back of your tv should have the same thing,it should say input,get a rca cable with plugs on both ends and match the plugs to the colors,if you tv or dvd player,doesnt have these,then you will need to plug your cable box into the dvd player and run a coaxial from the dvd player and tv,use channel 3 or 4 on the dvd player and 3 or 4 on the tv
Not knowing the model of the TV its hard to tell you how to hook it up. Howeever let's assume that yu TV has an auido in and a composite video input. it it does is should have three RCA jacks on the back...one red, one white and one yellow.
Assuming Dishnetwork is being used as a analog video.
Connect the VCR/DVD player via a patch cable ( usually has three cable all color coded, red, white & yellow) Red and White section is used for the audio Left and Right. The yellow cable is video.
Connect the audio out of the VCR/DVD player to the audio input on the TV. Do the same with the videoout of the VCR/DVD to the TV may be marked "Composite Video". Now connect your Dish Network receiver RF Out to the TV. This should be a coaxal cable.
Now when you want VRC/DVD use your remote and select input. Some older TV's have the aux input just before Ch 2. Some remotes have an input button.
once you have aux inpsut selected turn on the dvd and play your movie to view Dish go to Ch 3 or 4 depending on how your TV and system is set up.
Again not knowing the model TV you have, this is a general hook up.
Thank you Let us know if it helps

Check Carefully on the Back on the DVD You will see different color RCA plug yellow, Red and white Input and Output The yellow output from your DVD go on the input TV ...Then the red output go in our red TV input Same for the white RCA plug sample to do ...
I do hope that you have gotten this resolved, but if not, here are some steps.
From the receiver box:
You will want to connect RCA (red/white/yellow) from the TV1 slot to the IN on the back of the DVD. You can also use coax, which would then be connected to TV SET OUT on the back of the receiver.
From the DVD:
You will want to have more RCAs going from OUT on the DVD to the TV. Then the TV needs to be on channel 3 or 4, and on an input. Usually Video 1 or 2. The DVD will need to be on whenever you are watching the DISH.
on the back of your VCR there will be a yellow colored port - most likely labeled "OUT" as well as possibly a white/red pair of ports. The yellow is for a VIDEO hookup, the white and red are for AUDIO hookups. These ports use what is called an RCA type connection. Radio Shack, or just about any department store should be able to sell you an inexpensive set of RCA cables.
now on the back of the TV (possibly on the side) you will also have the yellow, white and red ports.
Hook one end of the RCA cable to the colored ports on the VCR, the other end of the cable to the colored ports on the TV.
last thing - the TV most likely has multiple inputs. there is probably a input button on the TVs remote, you need to press that button to cycle through the inputs until you get to the one the VCR is hooked up to. its easiest to put a tape in the VCR and press play - when you get to the right input, you will see your tape...
the order i normally use for the sound system (if thats what your asking) is run everything including the vcr to the tv then on the back there should be a red plug and a white plug labeled audio out then run that to the sound system any input on the sound system will work long as the colors match and its labeled input...hope this helps!.
the cables are for, sound, video. yellow is video. my daughters tv did this also. we had to junk it no one carries parts for Vizio. i would call the store and take it back, something got knocked loose during the transaction between the store and your house.
Connect the DVD to the back of the set on AV2 red white and yellow rca cable . Then to the other end to the DVD red white and yellow. Turn the DVD on and press play. On the tv remote below the number 7 there is an AV button. Press that button and put the tv to AV2. Your DVD picture should be there.
