Get my dish reciever, sony home theatre, and 55in sanyo tv to work together

If your TV and sound system both have a Digital Optical Out/In you can use a TOSLink cable (an optical cable) to connect your TV directly to your sound system, and remove the connection between the DISH receiver and the sound system. As long as your sound system is on the right input, all sound accompanying the picture on screen will go to your sound system. Most TVs also have an option to turn off the internal speakers, if not just reduce your volume all the way down to avoid that weird ghost sound effect. If you use your sound system all the time for volume, you can program the sound system to your DISH remote's AUX, and even set the remote so that it only sends volume and mute commands to the sound system (that way you don't have to dance between sat, tv, and aux all day, just leave it in sat mode).

To program your remote to the sound system, follow the instructions on the sheet you got with the remote (yeah, right like anyone kept that) you can use that link to program your remote. You can also use the learning mode if your remote has a little glossy square on the top left side and you have the original remote to the sound system. (Learning mode can be gleaned from the remote manual Remote Control Manuals)

After programming the aux device, and verifying that it changes the volume up, down, and mute, THEN:

Hold AUX until light blinks 3 times, hit pound (#), Volume Up, 0 (Zero), pound (#), SAT, then test to make sure it goes up and down.

Upgraded older HD TV to a Sharp 70" smart TV & Home Theater Receiver (Yamaha RX-V575. Have AT&T U-verse HD Cable box. What is the connection sequence using HDMI cables. Searched Yamaha and AT&T sites and...

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.

Can't find the correct way to hook up my vcr to my dvd recorder to record vhs to dvd disc. could someone please give me some instuctions on hookup please. thanks

connect yellow, red, and white RCA jacks (video, audio rt and lt) to the "out" on the VCR. If your VCR isn't stereo it will only have one audio plug.

Connect the other end of the jacks 9yellow, red, and white) to the "in" jacks probably marked Aux in, on the DVD recorder.

Now follow the instructions on the DVD recorder to set to Aux in (some have two aux front and back). Should have a button for it on the remote.

With the dvd, tv , and vcr on, you should see the VCR on the screen. Start the tape and press record on the dvd, you are set.

Brake Box Will Not Work

First try a 12 volt "stab in" test light pushed into the blue wire at the brake controller. Red is brake feed from the truck, black is 12 volt power and white is ground. If all is wired correctly, the blue wire should power up when you hit the brakes. Be sure to turn the controller up to highest setting to test it. When you hook the test light up, the connection indication light should come on. Then turn red when you hit the brakes. Also see for more info.

Celestial HD Digital Television Receiver DVB8800HD

Normally, there are 2 ways to hook these devices up. One is the component cable that has 3 colors, red white and yellow. these color codes match an aux. input on the TV (or vid1 or vid2) You need to change the TV input to whichever you used by the remote or maybe under Ch2 (4,3,2,vid2, vid1, aux,111,110,etc) The other way is to use the round 4-5 pin S-video instead of the yellow jack, that is self explanetory. The 3rd way and this depends on your TV and receiver is to use the HDMI, composite or DVI cable connection. These are only for Hi def players and will be either a large multi-pinned computer type plug, 5 colored/lead "octopus" cable, or a smaller D shaped high density cable with the row of contacts inside the plug. In any case you need to tell the TV which input you are using.
Once you get the TV to show a picture of the receiver, then you autoprogram the receiver with the remote under setup or other menu.

LG LST-5100P set top box. Several times a day have

cap-grant, my friend has the same problem with set top box. When I phone maker I was told it is due to poor and weak signal. You must have 80% signal strength to maintain good picture. When signal strength dropped picture would freeze and had to be turned off at the power point to restart as nothing would work. So I guess what my experience says is you may need better aerial to boost signal and prevent dropout Leonard210
