Get a set of video cables to connect the DVD player to the TV.
Then follow the numbered instructions in this post to connect the DVD player, and use your TV remote to switch the video mode when you want to watch a DVD, then switch it back when you want to view TV.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Make sure the TV is set to channel 3 if that is what the output channel is set to on your converter box. You can also test the TV by hooking up a good VCR to the TV and play back a good tape on the channel that VCR is set to output on. Now the important thing to remember if the setup is correct is that with Digital signals, you either have it or you don't. If the digital signal is too weak, it will show up as "no signal" and you may have to invest in a good outdoor antenna, rotor and good antenna amplifer to get a viewable picture, especially if the station you are trying to receive is over 50 miles away. Hope this helps, your TV is probably not at fault.

TV Guardian menu won't come up after hooking up DTV converter box


You may want to check the digital converter boxes and make sure they have analog pass through, it should be listed on the box or the instructions. My Magnavox and Zenith which were bought about a year ago, do not have analog pass through.

Connecting dtv box to vcr to dvd to the tv


you can hook the cable box into the vcr and then out of the vcr into the spliter which will turn your tv red/white/yellow signel input into two inputs( you can get this at most radio shacks for about $7.00 dollors) this leaves you with one more input for the dvd player

Want to use DTV converter with my Toshiba 32AF42


If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!

Connecting two devices with only one input on TV


Does your converter box have a coax out to tv jack? If so, connect it to the antenna jack on the tv. You should be able to see the box on channel 3 or 4.
