If your tv does not have the standard 3 plug video ports ( Yellow, White, Red ) then you will need an RF modulator to step in between the Direct TV box and the tv on the cable line.
RadioShack sells them as well as many other places. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095

I have a beko 37 inch hd ready tv i recently go the sky hd box . my tv only has one hdmi port and i also have a samsung blu ray dvd player which only has a hdmi connection i got a switcher box for the hdmi...


It is possible the hdmi cable that you are using is faulty. The reason I say this is because you have multiple signals that pass through a hdmi cable (19 pins in it means 19 wires to carry signals). The more the cable gets moved and bent, you increase the chances of creating a short or re-connecting a short if moved from one tv to another. This is the best case scenario as it is easier to replace the cable and less costly. Since you already connected the the dvd directly to the tv, and I am presuming that you have working devices running through the switch and you can eliminate that as the problem. If you do not have working devices on your switch or directly into your tv, and you have tried multiple hdmi cable and still nothing, the hdmi connector on your tv is probably bad and that would be the worse case scenario.

Can I connect my laptop to my 51swx20b and watch hulu or dvds?


If your laptop has an S-Video output you should be able to connect your TV with the S-Video input (F connector) in the rear. You should be able to watch dvd and hulu if you have a good graphic card. But if you are looking to have something more permanent, I would recommend you a network-ready HD media player, like for example the Western Digital USB 2.0 WD TV Live Network-Ready HD Media Player. I have one of those and I can see HD movies that I download and put on my Usb, or I can see any media (videos, photos, music) that I have on any hard disk in the network. (Because the media player is connected to my router) The media player can work wireless if you install and additional wireless adapter. If your media player is Hulu-ready, you will see it immediately. The WD TV Live only has Youtube integrated. In my house, I converted my laptop in a Media Server with PlayOn and I can stream Hulu, CBC, CNN, etc. to my WD media player (in my case, wireless, but I want to connect them directly) and then to my TV (using a hdmi cable, you can also use a composite cable) It is about $230 in components: Media player ? around $130 Compatible wireless adapter ? 40$ (optional) PlayOn ? 40$ Cables and others ? 20$

Sony Bravia with Phillps dvd player


The DVD player may have multiple output formats that can be displayed. Sounds like you have the composite output selected when you have the component output selected on the DVD player. Check the menu options on the DVD player and confirm they match the way you have the player connected

Older ge tv but cable ready-no remote.... need to find channel to play dvd player on.Recently connected dvd player but can't play a dvd.The tv is connected to a cable box.


Hey wegodsky,

If you're not able to find the right channel on your TV to use your DVD player, you may want to try changing the TV's input source instead. Many TV models will require that the TV be set to an external antenna in order for any other device (like a VCR or DVD player) to function correctly. This can usually be done by pressing the menu button on the TV itself and selecting an option similar to "Input," "Source" or "Antenna" if you do not have a remote control for your TV.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Need directions to install a dch70 box to tv


dear woolifer ,
I am not an expert but i hope i can help you..
is it youmean digital cablebox?
if it is try this-

This is a problem a lot of people have with coaxial-only televisions because DVD players do not have coaxial (RF) outputs, which means they can't be connected directly into a television with only a coaxial (RF) input. The solution is to purchase a RF modulator, which is a small device that will convert the AV output from the DVD player to coaxial (RF).
As for the instructions, I am going to assume the DVD player is not a combo unit with the VCR, and that you want to record TV on your VCR. Step 4 will include connecting your DVD player, but if the DVD player is a combo unit with the VCR, just ignore step 4 part as DVD connection will be included in the VCR set up. Actually, you wouldn't need the RF modulator if it is a VCD/DVD combo unit.
  1. Connect the coaxial cable coming out from the wall to your digital cable box in the ‘video in’ slot. It might also be labeled ‘antenna in’ or ‘cable in’.
  2. From the cable box, connect a coaxial or composite (yellow video cable) and stereo (red-white) RCA audio cables to the VIDEO IN terminal on your VCR.
  3. From the VCR, you will have to connect this to the RF Modulator using a coaxial cable from the VIDEO OUT on the VCR to one of the IN ports on your RF modulator.
  4. You can now connect your DVD player to the RF Modulator by using the yellow-red-white composite/RCA cables from the VIDEO OUT on the DVD player to another port on the RF modulator.
  5. From the RF modulator, connect this unit to your TV by using a coaxial cable. It will be from the VIDEO OUT on the RF modulator to the VIDEO IN or CABLE or ANTENNA IN port on your television.
This should be all you need to get started watching your digital television. In simple terms here is what you did:
Coaxial from wall to cable box
Cable box to VCR
VCR to RF modulator
DVD player to RF Modulator
RF modulator to TV
You will only be able to record what is on channel

Unable to watch DVD's on this TV


Your DVD player may be set up to put out a different mode. Are you using the component cables or s-video? If it's the component cables, make sure you're player is putting out 480p. Also, try it with another set to see of you can localize the problem.
