We are trying to set up the digital terrestrial receiver gstb1701USB to a NEC flat screen TV through a Panasonic Video and DVD player - can not get it to interact - to tune it in - everything is plugged in and the receiver is on and the remote is working but we can not move past that
Help would be greatly appreciated

Re: installing a receiver
Plug the receiver directly to the tv first without the panasonic. set up the receiver . then add the panasonic. the panasonic probably doesnt have a digital tuner so use composite av cables (yellow, red, white) from the reciever to the player

To answer your question;
Your motorola will connect directly(not through the dvd) to the tv set into one of the input ,(preferably using hdmi or component cables for hd) and the dvd will use a different input,
All you have to do then is switch between which one you want to watch.
Hope this help Cheers
Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output: *Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK ) This will look like a single RCA output plug. Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it). Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.
*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
