We have a magnavox hd tv almost 1 year old connected to direct tv. Last nite my wife thinks she did something but doesn't know what so there is no picture. There is perfect sound and the tv guide from direct tv can be viewed. Any ideas what to try?

Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.
Jesus, not even the red white and yellow hookups? Oh, man, sorry, but I would need the model of the DVD player...and how did you hook up the DVD player if it doesn't have the red white and yellow hookups? just curious. Also I would highly recommend getting a new TV outright. If your tv is that old, it doesn't have HD, and that essentially defeats the whole purpose of having a powerhouse like the xbox 360. If you want the dvd player hooked up, give me the model number, but if you want a new tv, give me a budget and I am positive I can direct you to something reasonable. P.S. (being tech savvy isn't a requirement for the newer tvs. in my honest opinion, You have to be a WIZARD in order to get all the inputs to convert to the correct format so it can be displayed on the older tv, so hanging onto the old tv is actually more trouble than a new one. Just saying.)
If you are using a powerstrip may not be supplying enough power to run the LG HDTV and your HD receiver. If you are using a powerstrip make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall. Otherwise this may be a grounding issue please reply if this doesn't work and we can look into some other possibilities. Daniel Busa DISH Network Customer Service
To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.
I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.
Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV
up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors.
Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although
were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of
preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected
due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.
It must be connected with the color circuit of your tv, a board connected to back end of the tube. Could be dust, cob web or carbon deposit shorting a transistor. Popping noise if loud enough can be attributed to high voltage circuit fault and picture tube.
Is it only the input that has the direct tv connected to it that has no
picture, or do you have no picture at all on any inputs? If you are
able to watch a dvd on say AV1 or input 1 but have no picture on the
other input that has the direct tv box connected to it I would call
direct tv and have them look at your box. If you have no picture at all
then it is your tv. and it being 10 years old it is almost a natural
failure a strange occurrence that being it happen right after you got satellite.
If the LCD only has coax, it will never display a HD picture quality. However, the Comcast HD Box will still display a picture using the coax connection. So, you could watch any HD channel, but the picture quality will not be high definition.
