I plugged in a DVD player to my TV (10 year old RCA model F25254GY), and need to put the TV onto the AUX channel to capture the signal from the DVD player. I don't have the original TV remote (using a universal remote now, from Time Warner Cable), and the TV has preset channels of only 2, 3 and 7. The TV used to go to the AUX channel if you hit Channel Down when you were on Channel 1, but now Channel Down from Channel 2 just loops back to Channel 7.
On the model RCA Color Track fmr722er the auxiliary channels AUX1 and AUX2 are on channel 91 and 92 respectively. When I do a channel scan or a channel up or down, the system won't find those channel, you really have to type those numbers.

Re: can't get TV onto the AUX channel
Do in your menu have like VCR or DVD in the option area? If so then put on vcr or dvd. Also you can look for the channel in the add or erase area and move past the channel 2 by going the other way and see if the aux or video1 comes on then simply chose it.

Take a clue from the 10-year old vintage of the TV and the two analog audio cables. It's Dolby Pro Logic Surround at best, not Dolby Surround in the modern, digital, multi-channel sense.
TV's are not the source nor the end of a multi-channel audio chain. Feed this thing a 2-channel source from a Cable Box (into the "TV" jacks), DVD, Video Tape or CD with proper Dolby Surround encoding and will seem to open up the sound field a bit and kick in a little surround effect. It can also simulate a Hall effect and Dolby 3 stereo.
You need an RF modulator to convert the A/V output (RCA jacks) of the DVD player into a Coaxial cable you can plug into the back of your TV. I'm including a link to one at radioshack.com. This one costs $27.49. You might be able to find a cheaper one at a discount store. You can also use an old VCR if you have one to do this conversion but the connections get a little bit tricky. Plug the A/V outputs of the DVD player into the A/V inputs of the VCR. You'll have to set up the VCR so it knows to use the A/V inputs. Some VCRs have and AUX setting for this. Then connect a coaxial cable from the VCR output to the TV input. You'll have to setup the VCR to send it output to a specific TV channel, usually channel 3 or 4. Then you'll have to set your TV to that channel.
open up your dash get 1 short RCA cable (red and white) male ends on them
now place the red and white RCA into the back of DVD in-dash player next step the aftermarket CD player should have 2 rca plugs that say aux put the other end red and white RCA cable that you just put into DVD unit into the aux inputs on back of CD player when this is done reinstall both units back into the dash now on your CD player press the source button till aux appears once this is done you will hear the DVD player sound...........now if you press the source button and no aux appears......hold down the source button till the CD player powers off...........once CD player is off hold down the F (function) button till beep or unit turns on a display use the skip buttons or F (function) button to go threw features once you get to aux turn aux to on now hold the source button down again till unit powers on normally once this is done press source button again till you find aux........if you get sound and the TV doesn't work let me know and ill guide you to get that running too (if there are no aux RCA plugs on the back of CD player) let me know (sometimes there is a headphone looking plug on back of CD units) if what i told you doesn't work let me know the brand of CD player you have so i can give you correct setups I'm only going by your in-dash DVD player right now
hope i was able to help get you sound
use vid 1 or vid 2 input on remote should do that if not then use a differ code in your universl for your tv that makes it work or type 00 should get u there another way go to channel 1 and then down arrow it will go into it if not go into your add channel menu and add them then down arrow
If not, the RCA plugs, listed as input 1 and 2 are shown on channel 91 and 92.
I recommend connecting the DVD to either input. Turn on the DVD. Then run the auto programming function of the TV. It will find and program the channel for the DVD. Then use the channel up or down on the remote you are currently using and you should find a working DVD.
