    Sure, but I don't need a hard-wire solution. An older DISH controller had a button that connected - somehow. But the present one does not have that button.

Sometimes there is a conflict between units, so you may need a "smart" scart adaptor, and only have one unit on at the same time.

Set your TV to do a station scan - and see if it picks it up on autotune.

    pull out all the connections you have made [but not the 
    speakers and sub]. it is much easier to start from scratch. 
    1.a. dvd - sound. all you need is a coax wire from the apex's digital 
    coax output [the orange colored one] to the coax digital input on the 
    receiver [this one is black, not orange]. 
    1.b. dvd - video. run a video wire [composite for now, you can swap an 
    s-video in later] from the dvd player into the input on the receiver 
    labeled dvd/ld. 
    2.a. vcr - input. run a/v wires from the vcr's OUTPUT into the INPUT 
    labeled vcr/dvr on the receiver. 
    2.b. vcr - output. run a/v wires from the vcr's INPUT [or line 1] into 
    the OUTPUT labeled vcr/dvr on the receiver. 
    3.a. tv. from the receiver's moniter output, run a composite video cable 
    into the tv's video input. 
    3.b*. tv. if available, run a set of audio wires from the tv's moniter 
    out or audio out into the receivers tv/sat audio input 
    4. run an rf wire from the vcr to the tv 

    now, that is all that has to be hooked up for now. if your tv can use 
    s-video, you can run the s-video direct to the tv's s-video input from 
    the dvd players s-video output. 

    the receiver will not change formats: it will not convert composite to 
    s-video, or s-video to composite. 

    now on the receiver, setup the coax digital to be on dvd/ld, and on the 
    front panel, select dvd/ld, then press the signal select button [at the 
    right, by the volume knob] make sure the signal select is digital, not 
    analog. in the dvd players setup menu, make sure to turn on the dts 
    bitstream, and the audio out to digital/raw [i think it is that, i 
    haven't owned an apex in a few months now..] 

    if your tv doesn't have a moniter out with fixed audio, or a dedicated 
    audio out, you can just use the vcr to tune the channels and get the 
    sound through the system from that. 

    that should get you going. hope it helps

If you have iDVD and can format a happy menu/chapter selection in iDVD, I might have a solution. 1080i in my experience consistently gums up DVDSP. 

We have a DVCPRO HD 1080i60 project, and we had a heck of a time with the interlaced video going to DVD. We landed on this solution - it preserved the aspect ratio, it reduced the interlacing to an acceptable edge and it didn't take too terribly long. But it's a homemade solution and until I hear otherwise, it'll have to do for us. We use it to output cuts for composers, producers, whatnot - for our final output, we'll probably do a big compression from interlaced 1080 to progressive 1080. We have another project shot at DVC PRO HD 720p and it has none of these problems when compressing for DVD. 

I output a quicktime using File>Export>Using Quicktime Conversion. I clicked on options next to the Format pull-down menu. From there I hit the Size button under the video heading. Under Dimensions I scrolled down to Custom, then entered 864x486 - this provided us with the best resolution downres-ed from 1080i with the proper aspect ratio built in. (We left the "Preserve aspect ratio using" box unchecked.) I then clicked - and this is important - Deinterlace Source Video. I still looks a little edgy but acceptable. Some have suggested putting a channel blur filter on the sequence at .35 to 1 pixel of blur to help with this - I think it boosts conversion times, so settled for just the deinterlacing checkbox and our image looks a little too soft for that solution. 

Our sequence is 15 min. in length, and it takes an hour to make the quicktime. From there it's about 15 minutes in iDVD. It looks good and the resulting quicktime hasn't given us any problems in iDVD.

Connecting your Television, VCR, and DVD Player:

NOTE: Do not connect a DVD Player to a VCR and then to the TV. Copyright protection will prevent the DVD signal from displaying clearly when routed through a VCR (as well as prevent copying of DVD movies to VHS). Connect your components as outlined below.
First, connect the DVD Player as follows:
You will require: audio / visual cables. You may also use an S-Video cable in place of the yellow visual cable if you prefer, and your television has an S-VIDEO input. Connect the AUDIO OUT jacks on the DVD player to the AUDIO IN jack(s) on the rear of the television. Then connect the VIDEO OUT on the DVD player to the VIDEO IN on the television, OR connect the S-VIDEO OUT on the DVD player to the S-VIDEO IN on the television.
Connecting your DVD player in this manner will not affect your cable or antenna connection to your television. Please see Connecting Your Television and VCR for further details on these connections. To use the DVD player, the Input Mode or Channel on your television must be changed. Consult your Owner's Manual for instructions on using your TV and DVD player.
===== if you want to see the diagrams of which point to connect where just click this link and see the diagram and connect in that way in your device and unit

If your TV has RCA outputs via Yellow, White, and Red Plug the cords from the output of the DVD player to the input of the television. There should be an input/aux button on your tv remote. Power on your dvd player and hit that input button until you see the DVD on your television screen.

If you have any further issues, let me know.

You can buy an AV-RF converter (Big Lots 9.99) and connect the output of DVD through AV in on converter which would be connected through Antenna Out to antenna in of TV. Spirit Broadband TV will go trough antenna in of converter. If DVD has S-video out you can buy the converetr with S-video in and connect the dvd through S-video, while having Spirit to be connected through antenna in. Depending on brand of TV you will hav DVD in at 00-05 channels.
Good Luck

    If TV has AV in ports you can also connect the DVD using AV out DVD to AV in on TV

  • Grigory Zyryanov Jan 10, 2009

    1. Check you TV if it has AV-in port in front or back panel or S-video-in

    the examples are here

    http://www.valley-ent.com/catalog/rca-sv...

    2. If there are no those ports on tv you need to get one similar to shown (Big Lots 9.99)

    3. Connect DVD-AV out or S-video out to TV or corresponding ports of adapter you got

    In case of adapter port TO TV or Antenna OUT goes to Antenna in of TV.

    4. Connect the cable Spirit Broadband TV (from converter box if you have it or from a wall) to Antenna in on TV or Adapter (if you usimg adapter).

    5. Turn DVD and TV on and go to MENU-INPUT SELECTION-CABLE and Check the cahannels for DVD signal (it would be blank blues screeen with DVD BRAND logo on it or something similar).

    6. If you can not find it you need to go MENU-CANNELS-AUTO CHANNEL and TV will find it

How to get dvd on tv


There are generally 2 ways to connect a dvd player to a tv.1 If you have 3 rca connectors on the back of your tv (they are color coded yellow for video and white and red for audio left and right channels respectively) and the same connectors on the back or side of the dvd player.Use rca cables to connect the dvd player to the tv,connecting yellow to yellow white to white and red to red.Using the remote put your tv on video.Put the channel selector on the dvd/vcr player on video or L1 or E1 (depending on what brand dvd/vcr you have).2 connect a rf (coaxial cable from the rf output of the dvd/vcr and connect this directly to the rf (antenna) input to your tv.Put the tv on channel 3.Play the dvd/vcr to see if you have the video.If not put the tv on channel 4.Some dvd/vcr's put their signals out on channel 3 and others on channel 4.Good luck.

How do I hook my Sanyo DVD/VCR player to my slyvania TV


Wow - lots of info needed about your tv for a good answer there. But I can assume you only have a cable TV hookup on the back of your TV - and dont have a RCA input. So I will go on that. I had an old TV and had just this situation... I used my VCR to interface the DVD player for me.

So I ran the DVD player output to my VCR ( that had the typical RCA cables ) - Vidieo - Right channel- left channel - and then ran the VCR output COAX ( standard cable TV cable ) from my VCR to my old TV. once I selected channel 3 or 4 on my tv, I could see my VCR and my VCR would send me the DVD output, if I set the VCR to do that. Now I could record a DVD onto VHS ( for my personal use only of course ) good luck...

How do i hook up a dvd player to my tv if i have cox cable? I dont know what channel to put my tv on. I know there has to be a way to watch a dvd without unhiiking the cable


Most DVD players have a coax input and output on them. But some newer ones don't. Assuming your does then you can run your DVD player to your TV with a coax cable you bet. Either on the back of the DVD player there will be a little switch or in the menu settings it will give you an option for channel 3 or channel 4. The same channel you select on the DVD player will be the same channel you will want to put your TV on. For the coax install run it from the output on your DVD player to the coax input on your TV. If you use a coax for cable too then just run you coax from the output on your cable box to the input on your DVD player.

Trying to hook up an emerson dvd player to tv and its not working? older tv it has no cable hook up or control box for channel set up, shouldnt the dvd player still be able to work though?


IM GUESSING THIS MIGHT BE AN RCA TELEVISION? if you dont have an rca in hook up on the tv give up and buy a new tv or you can find an older item what it is is a switch that has an rca input and a coax output it was used to hook up the older video game systems it is still sold in most stores and that will work if you do have rca inputs and lost the remote you need to get a universal remote to switch the input on certain older rca tv's you could go to channel 00 and it would set it to the input with the switch you shoudl be able to use it by putting the tv on channel 3

Auxillary channel for dvd


You need to determine what output options your DVD player has. Take a look at the rear of the player. It will certainly have RCA jacks for video and audio outputs (yellow for video, red and white for right and left channel audio). It may also have RCA jacks for component video (marked Y, Pb and Pr). Finally, it may have a threaded connector marked "out to TV" or "antenna out" or something similar. This is called RF output.

Most players today don't offer RF output because nearly every TV has direct AV inputs available. If your DVD player has RF output, connect the output connector to the TVs antenna input. You need a coaxial cable with F-connectors on the ends. One may have been supplied with the player. RF output is on channel 3 or 4, set by a switch on the back of the player or by its on-screen setup. Just set the TV to that channel to watch a DVD.

If your player doesn't have RF output, you connect it to the TV using the AV jacks. You need cables with RCA plugs to to connect the video and audio from the player to the TV. Then you switch the TV to its video input to watch the DVD.

This is where you might run into problems. Many TVs need the original remote control to switch inputs. (Some older RCA sets used channels 90, 91 and 92 to switch to their video inputs so any remote would work, but these sets were made before 125-channel tuning became standard. If your set is one of those models, those are the auxiliary channels you heard about.) If you can't switch the set to video input with front panel buttons and you don't have the right remote, you're not completely out of luck.

If you can't use your set's AV inputs or it just doesn't have any, you need an RF converter. These cost around $15. They take the audio and video from the DVD player and convert it to channel 3 or 4. Then you hook that output to your TV as described above.

Need the remote code for a phillips dvd player


These are the codes printed in the owners manual for your dvd/vcr player.If they do not work you will have to contact Emerson and ask them for help getting the code. The contact number should have come with the instructions for the remote. Just give them the model number of you remote and the units model number and they should be able to help you. I hope this information helps you with your problem. Switch the input selector on your TV to an appropriate external input channel (usually near channel 0).
Press a button on the TV’s original remote control that selects an external input channel until the DVD
recorder’s picture appears. Check your TV owner’s manual for details.

Hooking up dvd player


Look for any button either on the unit or the remote marked with common stuff like A/V, Input, Source, Aux or Au, Line, TV-VID. or try dialing in Channel 0, or 00, or 1, or Channel Down surf below Channel 2. Alternately, get into the menu and look for stuff concerning Auxiliary inputs.

If all else fails, you can run a DVD's audio and video line-signals THROUGH a VCR. Hookup the VCR to the TV's RF (threaded) connector using standard coaxial cable. Hookup the DVD a/v output lines to the Line-ins of the VCR. Tune the TV to Ch. 3, tune the VCR to Line-in or Auxiliary and press the play or tv/vid button on the VCR to force the DVD signal through on channel 3 onto the TV.

Input problem


If you have the original remote, hit video, source, or input button, if it dont have them, then try to change the tv to channel 00 (zero or zerozero), if not then the channels might have to scroll to it, from channel 02 down to make it loop, if it goes to the next highest channel, then you need a remote. It may be set in the menu options to have the video source not saved to your list of saved channels. when you scan the channels, the tv might not look for the A/V source (audio / video), maybe just the RF source. The 3 DVD RCA wires are 1 video and 2 stereo, one stereo for left and one stereo for right. The TV has only 2 , 1 for video and 1 for mono 1 channel sound. This wouldnt have anything to do with why you cant use the DVD player. but try that with the original remote (or a universal remote that is set to your tv set that has either video, input, source or something similar. It is what tells the tv to change from the cable source (RF) and the AV source (the Red White and Yellow plugs, in your TV's case, 2 plugs, one yellow and the other either red or white or something). Dont really know how to explain it much more but hope it helps.
