It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.

why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.

The simplest solution would be connect the headphone jack on the iPod to the stereo audio inputs (RCA) to your home theater. So you need a cable that is "stereo phono mini jack" on one end (into iPod headphone jack), and then Y-splits into two RCA connectors on the other end (into L and R audio in on the receiver).

The expensive Apple-endorsed Monster-branded version can be found at http://store.apple.com/us/product/TN983LL/A#overview for $30, but you can get the same thing at Radio Shack for $7.

Set the iPod volume to less than ~80% and then control the volume using your receiver. You have to use the iPod menu to select music.

There is only one thing that you can do as the end-user to try and fix this. Try cleaning the lens on the laser pick-up. Most retail outlets that sell CD or DVD players sell a cleaning disc for about $10 to $15. You put it in the machine and let it run for about 20 to 30 seconds. If the reason your DVD player won't play is because the lens is in need of a cleaning, this will fix it. If the reason is anything else it will not help at all. The most common reason for this failure is a faulty laser pick-up that need to be replaced. This is the most common and usually the most expensive repair because of the cost of the pick-up. It can cost anywhere from $130 all the way up to $200 depending on the labor rates of the shop and how much they mark-up the cost of the pick-up. All shops mark-up the cost of the parts. It is not advisable to do this yourself unless you have some experience with electronics and can do some troubleshooting to verify that the pick-up is indeed bad. It is easy to cause more problems than you started with if not done properly. As I stated above, it is the most common, but it is not the only reason. Other causes of this failure can be as simple as a bad voltage regulator or as difficult as replacing a servo IC. It can also be a memory IC (if it plays CD's but not DVD's), a spindle motor, a bad gear or switch, or one of many other causes. That is why it requires some experience troubleshooting them to nail down the exact cause.

I hope that this information was helpful for you to make a desicion on what to do with it, and if so, a rating of "FixYa!" would be appropriate and very much appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for offering people like yourself this free help and information.

Let me know if you have any more questions, I will be happy to offer you whatever help I can. I have over 18 years experience repairing these type of products. I have been repairing DVD players since they came out on the market for sale.

Most likely some one hit the wrong button on the remote. Make sure you have the proper device selected and the tv is setup for the proper device input. It is hard to tell you what is exactly wrong due that I do not know the full extend of your system.
