I have a DCT6416 and would like to use the inputs from either the front or back but don't know how to change the settings to recognize that input. I would like to do this for 2 reasons. First to be able to put DVD movies onto the hard drive and if I am able to put my DVD through the DVR that would upscale the video for me. Thanks

there should be a red audio and a yellow video cable / hook it the audio video jacks that are color coded on the back of the tv . the input will be labeled next to it . tune the input the tv to this input
Previously Tech Support here of ATT Uverse. For your issue you may want to try this steps by changing the input: click number 7(same as input) on your att remote you should have input lists on your tv screen. If not doing anything use your TV remote and find there input,source or tv/video and you should have input lists on your tv screen. For the input you should choose HDMI 1 or 2 if you are using HDMI cable. If not try to choose anything on the input lists and you should get the right input in order for you to watch on your DVD and going back to TV. Hope it helps
I dont know about your particular hd hookup , but I take the hdmi cable out of my dish reciever/dvr [digital video recorder] and run it straight to the hdmi input #2 in the back of my apex 40 in lcd-hd-tv
I think take the hdmi output from the at&t u-verse cable box and plug it into the hdmi input of your 70 in sharp smart tv
that will get the input signal from your cable box ,both video & audio, into your tv set. on the back of your tv set there should be audio outputs for home theater audio systems that would plug into the audio inputs of the home theater system.
prehaps i am wrong because you say that your yamaha is a home theater* reciever.* is the yahama more than a home theater audio system? What does it recieve?
Idea-- the salesman that you bought it from should be willing to help tell you how to hook it up.
also consider that there are many different ways to hook up vcr's and then dv recorders and dvd recorders and external 2 tera bite hard drives into my tv & dvr . I got that all hooked in & a rats nest of wires. so i can record in hd or sd,on vhs or dvd or dvr point is that you cant hurt anything by plugging the wrong plug into the wrong jack, as long as the same type of plug goes into the same type of jack. If its right,it works, if its wrong, it wont work until you plug it into the proper jack.
im sorry ,im 65 am not into knowing all the latest and greatest cutting edge tech ,but i am begining to catch up on my hobby, movie recording tech.
its not always going to be channel 3, it depends on the input cable you are using, if you are using an HDMI cable you need to switch to the hdmi input, same with component, and if you are using RCA cables it will probably be called video. Try your other inputs dont just stop at channel 3. If you are using coax and its supposed to be on channel 3, make sure you are on the correct coax jack on the receiver, make sure its the "to tv" jack not the "to wall" jack.
Which TV do you have? Some will have an Input or Source button on the front panel. A few will have an option to change the source from the menu. Both of these options require the front panel lock to be inactive.
A few older TVs allowed you to find the A/V input by pressing Channel Down on the front panel buttons until you passed channel 2 (or Channel Up until you nearly reached Channel 2). This option wouldn't work if the A/V inputs had been deleted when someone minimized going through unused channels.
If the Source or Input button was only available on the remote, you will need a universal remote that includes this feature. These cost a bit more than the lowest end remotes. Then you will have to try all of the codes to find the one that makes the Source button work with your TV. (Several codes may work for On/Off but not the change input.) The Universal remotes that can be programmed from a computer (USB connection) will be the easiest to set up. Remotes.com may have a replacement original or substitute remote for your TV that should work for all of the TV functions.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the TV make and model for specific options for your particular TV.
Cindy Wells (low end TVs usually only had the Source/Input button on the remote.)
It sounds like you simply don't have the cables hooked up corectly to allow that.Would you please tell me how it is hooked up?For instance,what the outside cable is hooked up to input etc. I need to know everything you have available,and what OUTPUT and what INPUT is connected to where,starting with the outside cable,and if there is a cable box or not.Literally everything connected for use with the TV.Greg
Newer directv hd receivers must connect to the av input (yellow,red, white) connections on the back/front/side of your tv. If your tv only has one of these av inputs then you will need an RF modulator for your dvd player. You will connect the (yellow,red, white) connections from the dvd player to the rf modulator and then connect the tv out on the rf modulator to the tv rf jack ( the silver threaded barrel on the back of the tv) Tune your tv to channel 3 to watch a dvd and then back to the av input channel for the directv receiver.
1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo
2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.
3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.
Dish network receiver only have outputs. There are not any inputs on the receiver that would allow this but if your dvd player has an iput source you could run the Dish receiver to it and then the dvd player to the TV. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Thanks for using FIx Ya and let me know if I can further assist you.
