Re: connect to dvd
I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.
In order to connect a dvd player to the TV you'll have to purchase a device called an RF modulator. You can find one at Wal-Mart, Target, Radio Shack, just to name a few. The purpose of this device is to allow you to connect a unit with composite outputs (yellow, red, and white) to a TV that only has a cable connector.

The best option would be the HDMI-to-HDMI connection between your player and your TV. But because you mentioned that your TV is an old model, probably it does not have an HDMI port, in which case you have to use the RCA A/V connection. I understand you do not have a remote control for your TV, but you do not program a TV channel to watch DVD movies; you just switch between your TV and the DVD player as your audio/video sources. Here is what you have to do: check on your TV box for a button labeled 'Source' or 'Input'. Press on the button and it will alternate between TV and DVD (assuming you do not have any other device hooked up to your TV).
You should be able to do a channel search and come across the inputs either at the upper end or the lower end of the channel search. Using the channels on the TV itself, not cable or satellite, scroll through the channels until the desired input is found. Once on the desired input open the DVD player and insert a DVD and close the drawer. The DVD should start to play automatically. When it gets to the place on the DVD to actually "play movie" press the select/enter button on the remote. As for the replacement remote I would get a universal remote. They are far fairer in price than an original replacement remote and every bit as reliable. Just make sure to take the model of your TV/DVD player with you to make sure the remote you purchase is compatible. You probably need to go no further than your local hardware store or department store. Save on the shipping too. However if you are set on getting the original remote here is a place http://www.orion.newremotecontrol.com/catalog_item.php?catnum=076R0DT090 they also sell a few generic remotes for a few dollars less.
if you are conncting it over component cable check your cables in the right spots if rca *red yellow nad white) then the cables may be bad or the refresh rate needs to be changed make sure the dvd player is selecting the correct output you are using.
A variety of remote control codes can be found at InsigniaProducts.com; just search for your TV model number and click Support. Also, try codes for the following brands: Orion, Emerson, Memorex, Sansui, Sylvania, Zenith.
from the looks of the picture you have one audio video input port on the front of the tv. The connectors are yellow and red or yellow and white. Yellow is video and red or white are audio. Find those same connectors on the back or your dvd player, hook it up to the tv and there you go. You'll have to go to game mode or input 2 on the tv to see the dvd player.
