try a regular video input on the tv and on another tv, and if that pink is on both tv's then its the dvd but if it only does it to that tv your hooking it up to then there is a problem with the tv video input
It really all depends on what else you may have hooked up and, what inputs you have on your TV. If you have an open HDMI in on your TV, I would use that because you will get your sound and vidoe with one cable(HDMI). If you don not have an open HDMI port on your TV, component cables are the your next best option video wise. The component cables do not carry sound so, you would have to get your sound by using,(best) digital optical or RCA. After looking at your player, your best picture would be using component and, it says it has SPIDF out but doesn't exactly specify what kind but, if you don't have the component cables, use youe RCA jacks(yellow), video out, and red and white(left and right audio) out from player to suitable input on TV. If I looked at the right player, there is no HDMI out on it.
Hi! If your TV does have HDMI (as your DVD) then this will be without doubt the best way. You will be getting great image quality and there is zero configuration needed. Just connect them by HDMI and select HDMI INPUT on your tv
Also, by using HDMI, and since both devices are LG, you will realize you can use one special button you can locate on both your remotes, it's called simplelink. Pressing this button will allow you to use some special features not available with another connection.
If you can go this way you will realize configuration is pretty straightforward and, in no time, you will have your whole system working ;)
First check what channel or input your TV is currently on bypowering the TV off then back on and noting the channel or input that appearson screen when the TV is powered on. If you are using a Coax Cable toconnect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver's back panel for the outputname. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4 out" (non-ViPReceiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, if it has"Home Distribution" output (ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 62or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) to connectreceiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears. In your casesince you have the Toshiba XDE500 connected between the receiver and TV, tuneTV and component to channel 3/4 (coax) or correct input. Hope this helps, andhank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

start from depending on your tv with hdmi-RGB-s-vid-component that is a little list starting from best to worst just match it up with your tv until you get a color fit and this will rule out best picture too then set tv input accordingly :)
sat/calbe coax from wall into box. hdmi(best) or component out from box to tv. change all settings (box and tv) to hdmi or not hdmi then select the correct input same with dvd hdmi again best cable no need for audio cables as well
Depending on the model of DVD player and the TV you are trying to connect it to you have various inputs and outputs.
If your have an HD (High Definition) DVD Player and a HD TV the best input to use is HDMI. Both device would have an HDMI interface whereby you could connect them together.
If you have a standard DVD Player you have usually 3 other input/output options, RCA, S-Video, and Component. Your RCA jacks are colored Red, Yellow, and White. Your S-Video is a larger circular jack with several pins. The Component cable has Red, Green, and Blue.
Of the three above the Component Cable connection is going to give you best picture quality. S-Video is second and RCA is third. You just need to match up the connectors on your TV and DVD and get the cable that accommodates the best picture quality. Again for clarification below are the interface options for best quality to poorest:
anytime your talking about a switch your talking about a temporary connection. The issue with using a switch is that for HDMI you want best quality and you will not get that using a temporary connection. The unit may be recognizing a weaker signal and turning the port off. However since the output on that particular unit is 1080i you should be fine using composite, just get a nicer monster set.
