    Is the dvd a recorder? If not a recorder only a player then it has no input. You need to connect the dish satellite to your tv and the dvd player too. That way you can see the tv channels from the satellite and the player too. Connect the satellite to the coaxial cable /if possible/ and the dvd player to the RCA connection /or S-cart, depending which one you have on your TV/. Make sure the satellite and the dvd player are not connected.

Hi!

Please tell me do you want to record the programs by the dvd player/recorder or you want to just connect dvd player and dish cable box both with your tv.

You can use component cables to do this.

The dvd needs to be connected to the tv then just turn the dvd to the satellite channel and you should have picture there.

    even an old tv will have an av setting. its for scart plugs. if you use scart the you need to use the av channel.
    if not the box will run through your dvd player channel or can be retuned to do so through your telly.

Have you gone through your onkyo receivers setup manual. You will most likely need to adjust the settings on your Onkyo receiver. I also have an onkyo reciever and I have to assign the inputs to the video source. Being that you got sound out of the front speakes. I am assuming when you were playing out of the dvd player your reciever was only on stereo sound. Once I get feedback I can assist you further

My RCA XL100 is hooked up to cable and works perfectly fine. We've had it for ages and the picture is clear, sound is beautiful, and it gets along fine with my universal remote. There's just one...


Some of their very old sets the video input was located on channels in the 90's; Try scrolling down from 99 to 90 to see if you locate the video input; this is just the way they did things in the older sets.

The New TV.don't come on, keep showing no signal, don't know what is wrong, can you help us, to get it going. thank you


Hello,

The TV is turned on. The TV showing "no signal" is an indication that is turned on. Its just that the TV is not recieving any signal whatsoever from an antenna, DVD player or dish.

I suggest you connect thee TV to a DVD player. Click source on the TV remote to AV 1. Use a RCA (yellow white and red wire) for the connection.

Yellow stands for video and white and red stands for audio. Connect yellow to "vidoe out' from the DVD player to 'video in' at the back of the TV. Do the same for the audio white and red.

Now there should be a display on the TV. If there is not display, check your connection.

Let me know if need more help.

Your sincerely.

I have recently had dish network installed and now I cant get my DVD player to play I have tried contacting dish network for assistance and no one can figure out the problem. I have a LG TV


Hello! This is Dan with DISH Network customer support. have you tried cycling the inputs? If you have an HD tv the DISH receiver and your DVD are probably connected using different cables. I would power them both on and hit the input or source button on your LG remote until you get a picture from the dvd player. Remember what input comes up as you will need to change this to go from satellite to DVDand back.

Can't use dvd on tv


when you hooked this up did you hook to the t.v directly? the dish receiver directly? or do you have surround sound system and hook through it. If you have a menu button on your tv then hit it, scroll to channel listings, once there you will be prompted to start selecting channels scroll down the channels to where it says video then select, that might work or least it does for me anyways. what type of tv do you have that could help me also. good luck let me know if i can help in any way

No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection


HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.
