Re: Would like to watch dvds on my Samsui TVM1316
Is there a button labeled source or input?
That is the one you want. If not, a universal remote for $15 to $20 may work although it is hard to tell from the box if will control the source, so buy where you can easily return it, say Walmart or Kmart.

You only need coaxial cable to pick up TV stations broadcast via an aerial. If your TV has sockets to connect via HDMI or SCART, then any players can be connected via them. So if the adapter box picks up TV signals, you connect the main aerial cable to that and it should have a coaxial out socket, that should be connected to the aerial in of your TV. If you are recording to an analogue video from the adapter box, then that will need to be connected via a scart socket or other connection.
I had the same problem, so I took it back to basics. Hooked cable into VCR/DVD player and another cable from player to TV. S cable too, plus red/white audio. Plays DVDs on AV1 and VHS on Channel 3 on TV setting.
Just hook up the audio best available DVD (or any) to this unit and the video directly to the TV. Running video through an HTS may add simplicity but it also adds two connections that could be points of failure or produce distortion, voice sync problems, etc.
Yes. Look on the dvd player for a video output, the manual should specifiy what cord is required. You may have got a cable with it. One end would probably be a yellow RCA jack (goes into a video input on your tv. You will most likey have to plug in a 3.5mm to RCA cable from the audio out or earphone jack (use audio out if it has one). All of these cords can be had for cheap and radioshack or any audio video store. Do not buy the best of the best. The really expensive cables will not show you any improvement over the cheaper ones. You can always bring the player with you along with the manual, and someone can match up the proper cables. It wont cost you much. However, the picture quality wont be as good as a standalone DVD player, but it would be better than nothing.
Hope this helps...
Make sure you have set blu ray player out put to bitstream,if you have set to pcm for hd master audio and dolby true you need to have a amp to decode this and hook up with a hdmi cable.If your amp has hdmi in and out but no high def audio you may still get multi channel audio.
