Re: How to connect a PS2 to a TV through a Hughes Direct...
Unfortunately you cannot run a ps2 or any other device through the receivers. take a look at the tv may have inputs on the front or side of tv where you can use red/white/yellow cabling OR take a look at what type of cabling your tv does support and go from there. hope this helps.

Hello! Thanks for using FixYa today-- I think I can help you out.
Your first step is always to do a soft reset of your cable box. Do this by using your remote to turn it off, and then manually unplug it from the wall. Leave it off for about five minutes or so and then turn it on again. If that soft reset doesn't work, there is one more thing you can try before calling an AT&T tech.
Another option is to go to your "Settings" page and fiddle around with the audio settings-- sometimes it will randomly get altered (either due to user error or just a bug) and not be geared towards the parameters you had before.
If this doesn't work, call AT&T and see if they can fix the issue for you. Since your DVD is working then this is most definitely an issue on their end of the aisle.
To answer your question;
Your motorola will connect directly(not through the dvd) to the tv set into one of the input ,(preferably using hdmi or component cables for hd) and the dvd will use a different input,
All you have to do then is switch between which one you want to watch.
Hope this help Cheers
connect dvd input cable (three banana plugs red, white, and yellow) to the video and audio output on a vcr, then take a screw on cable from the Ant. to the vcr. you will have to tune the vcr to the programs channel to record the picture. The vcr manual should tell you where the signal will be going, The picture should also go to the tv on ch 3 or 4 as when you play a vcr tape.
If you have different input options on your TVs, you could run the second TV with the Y, Pb,Pr component outputs along with the analog audio from the STB. However, remember the STB will only support ONE output video format. So both TV will have to be set to the same video format (720p, 1080i, 480p, etc)
Right then, on the back of the virgin box there are 2 scart outlets, connect one scart from the TV scart port to the scart in on the DVD recorder, then connect one scart lead from the scart out on the DVD recorder to the TV. Find the DVD recorder source channel on the TV and then use the DVD remote control to find the digital input on the DVD recorder, this is usually AUX channel. Post back if you need any more help
If your TV doesn't have direct audio/video input jacks, you can hook up your DVD/DVR/whatever using an RF converter. They are available in most retail stores and are inexpensive. You plug in the video and audio cables from the video device, and the output from the converter goes to the TV antenna input. Then you watch on channel 3 or 4, depending on how you set the converter.
Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.
Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output: *Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK ) This will look like a single RCA output plug. Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it). Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.
*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
