    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

    Good Luck

Does the TV have RCA inputs? use them, if u don't have RCA inputs then u will need a RF modulator and the TV set to channel 3 or 4, if u do have RCA video inputs then the TV must be set to auxiliary video in the TV's on screen menu.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

My Toshiba remote control se-r0077 sometimes works to control the DVD player and other times it doesn't. I've tried new batteries and the problem still persist s


One of the best ways to check if an infra-red remote controller is working properly is to look at it using a camera. (a webcam or phone camera will work) The camera will see the infra red radiation as visible light. If the LED lights up (on camera) consistently when buttons are pressed, then it may not be the remote at fault, but rather the receiver in the DVD player. Most of the time though, it IS the remote control at fault, and these are usually easy to get working again.

Couple of things to check are:

1) the battery terminals...
Batteries can leak and corrode the terminals in the battery compartments. Signs of this include rust, green coloured contacts, or a crystalline deposit. If you see any of this then clean the contacts using metal cleaner or some methylated spirit and cue-tips.

2) Broken wires connecting battery terminals to the circuit board...
The soldering in some remotes can be rather poor, and wires can sometimes come loose, especially if a remote has been dropped or bashed about a bit. Unscrew the remote and check everything is connected properly


3) Dirt under the buttons...
This can prevent a button from making contact with the circuit board properly. Unscrew the controller and separate the rubber button pads from the circuit board check for dirt both underneath the pads AND on the metal contacts on the circuit board. Clean as required with methylated spirit and cue-tips and then reassemble.


Hope that helps!

The eject button on the remote appears as an upward-pointing arrow with an underline - see below image. The eject button on the TV has a similar symbol.

However, I suspect that in your case, you might not be having a Remote.

This link says that your TV doesn't come with a Remote and DVD cannot be ejected without the remote :

How do i watch my tv with a broken remote


You can buy a universal remote and program it to work with your TV. I have always had good luck with RCA universal remotes. You can also program the remote to run your cable/sat box and your DVD/blue ray player. You could also go to the web site of the company that made the TV and order a new remote. This would be more expensive but the remote would run all the funcitions while the universal may not.

Where can I purchase the Audio Video Connection for my dvd player I want to hook it up to my TV but can't find the correct cable Thank you Sandy


For the COBY TF-DVD7500, the video is carried on a single RCA plug cable. You can make due with a composite video cable (with three RCA plugs on each end) or get an RCA cable. The audio output can either be digital audio (which uses a special coax cable) or a headphone connector (analog audio).I believe the headphone jack is a 3.5 mm connector. If you use a composite video cable to your TV, you can connect the red and white plugs to an adapter (3.5 mm M to 2 RCA F). Then the TV speakers will get the audio track; otherwise you can use the DVD player speakers or the digital audio out.

I hope this helps.
