I have purchased a satelite receiver and it hooks up to the tv with the yellow, white and red cables and there is no other place on the sat receiver to put a coax from it to tv, I had another sat box instaled but I had ran it thru a dvd and it had coax between tv and dvd and sat box. Is there another way to connect cables so I can get a picture?

Re: snow on screen and no picture on my DS35510
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, if the previous system/connection works then we should leave that as it is. Coax-Sat Receiver-Coax-DVD Recorder-TV and TV should be Channel 3 (or 4).
On the new Sat Receiver, coax from LNB/Dish to Sat Receiver, yellow, red & white to TV. TV should be set to Video 1 or A/V or Video. There should be no snow, rather if no reception, it should be blue indicating video has muted in the absence of a good signal.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

First, you need to run the coax cable from your satellite dish to the "cable in" input on the back of your satellite receiver, not the Bose. If your satellite receiver has an HDMI OUT, and if the Bose has an HDMI IN,run hdmi OUT from the rec. to the Bose IN, then keep your HDMI connection from the Bose OUT to the TV IN as is. Make sure you've selected the correct input on the TV menu. As it is right now, you're not delivering any video signal at all to the TV!! -only audio(red and white). There are a couple other ways, but they won't give you the same quality. I assume this is HD, right? If you CAN do it this way (i.e. if you have enough HDMI ins and outs), it's the best possible hookup and you won't need the composite (red, white and yellow) at all. By the way, it's the yellow connector that carries the video signal; the red and white are audio left and right. If you can't hook it up all HDMI, disconnect the "separate cable" (I'm not sure what that is or what kind of cable or what it's for)and plug in the yellow connector into video IN on the Bose.
If you are using cable wire from your directv receiver and not the red white and yellow wires, you must have the tv to channel 3 or 4 to pick up from the directv receiver. Go to the tv since you don't have a remote and push the channel up or down button to put the tv on channel 3. Be sure the satelite receiver is on.
Connect the Wii to your television. Then connect the variable audio output from the TV to the audio in on the monitor section of the receiver. Then use the TV/SAT input selection on the receiver and dolby prologic 2 as your sound mode.
First off, you need to hook up audio and video by using an A/V cable to connect the DVD player to the TV, yellow, white and red jacks are coded, match the jacks up, put one end of A/V cable to DVD player OUTPUT jacks and the other end to INPUT jacks in back of TV. Also same with Direct TV receiver, hook top set of jacks to TV, with A/V cable, also connect coaxial cable from satelite to matching satelite input jack. Connect power cables, and then you're set. Good luck to you!
Try running the antenna or cable through a vcr and then hook the VCR to one of the video input of the TV (use yellow red and white out of VCR to TV) Try changing channels with the VCR.
I don't know if your on cable satelite or antenna.
Are you using the default video cable (Red, White, Yellow) for video and sound? Make sure the Red and White are connected to the audio in for video 2 and that the yellow is connected to the video in for video 2. It might also be labeled composite video on your TV. If you are using the Red/Green/Blue plugs labeled component or Y/Pb/Pr then that might your problem with the black and white video.
As for the controller sync problem, you should press the red button next to the SD card slot on the Wii and the red button under the battery door of the new Wii remote in order to sync the two.
So you want to connect your red and white cables from your satelite box output to the receiver's auxillary inputs or TV inputs.
Red and White from your satelite output to an input on your TV, then another red and white from an output on your TV to the recevier. This way you can have sound from the TV and use the receiver when you want things to get louder. You also need a yellow single connector from the satelite to the TV to carry video. If you are using a coax cable from your satelite to your TV then you are cheaping yourself out of picture quality.
