Installed memorex mvd2042 dvd player, receive message "root"
Just connected memorex mvd2042 dvd player to my sharp hdtv. Put in a new disc received from Best Buy. The dvd player seems to go on and the play button lights up as well as the open/close button. The disc does not play, in the window it shows dvd in tiny letters. I pressed play button and receive message that says "root". The only buttons that seem to work are the power button and the open and close button. When I connected the dvd player to the hdtv using the user's guide it looks as though I connected it correctly with the audio left and audio right and the video connection. I just don't know what to do now.

If you have a dvd player only then take the output from the dvd player
and connect it to you tv's second input, HDMI or component or what ever
is a match between the two unites.
If you have a DVD-Recorder that you want to record programs from the
directv receiver then take the second output from the receiver and
connect it to the input on the DVD-Recorder and connect the output as
I'm having an identical problem with my very new "Memorex DVD". After trouble shooting everything suggested in the manual, I'm on my way to buy another "new" dvd player. Definately will not be Memorex.
