Hi ,,
Ok First off your Plasma has 3 inputs , 1 ,2,3

Here is what i would have done and what you can do.

First of your recivers has RCA output, thats 1 yellow cable and 1 red and 1 white,

The red and white are audoi and the yellow is video

1.) Connect your dvd player to input 1 in your Plasma.
just follow the color codes, yellow to yellow, white to whit, red to red,

2.) connect the other Reciver to input 2
using the same method

3.) connect the dvd to input 3
using the same method..

So now if you want to view reciver1 you set the tv to input1, reciver 2, input2 , dvd , input 3

In the event that your tv does not have 3 seperate inputs

you can go to your locol electctronics stor and purchase an RCA switch box

this is a device that has 3 seperate RCA inputs, a switch to slect which one you want to use and an output to connect to the tv, Simply connect all your devices to the RCA switch, and then connect the rca switch to your tv..

There are other methods of doing the same thing, but i chose this one as its the most simple solution

let me know if you are having any problems

    Please Note :: In the unlikely event that you may require an RCA switch, you can find it at your local electronics store. Some people have it listed as an RCA Multi Switch, Multi Switch and SpNT Switch, Tell tham you want an RCA switch or a Multi Switch For RCA Cables

With your Plasma tv, you have many inputs like Video1,2,3 and so on. You also have Composite Video inputs and also DVI-HD, all you would have to do is to hook Satellite 1 into 1st input and Satellite 2 into 2nd input and Dvd can go to any or all inputs. If you use the Composite video, just make sure you get the right cables for it, because this is a different color then the regular Red, White, Yellow cables, These will be the Green, Blue, Red cables input. Hope this helps! and just change tv input to the one you place the sats on.

What you need is a device called a multi-switch. Here's a page which details some of the switches available with different satellite setups. You would hook up your sat recievers, your TV and your recorder up to the multiswitch:

I have aquired a dish dvr, i do not have the dish servicem however. I want to know if i can still record a program and watch it later. Thank you


It is highly unlikely. The unit unlikely has any inputs other than the coax cable coming from the satellite dish. This will is the same 75 ohm cable connection you see on your tv used with antennas or cable service, but the tuner in the satellite box only decodes satellite signals.

Sorry about your luck. I recall some manufactures such as LG making DVD recorders with hard drives inside them. Those units can capture any analog signal. Another idea is to get a TV tuner card for your computer.

Hooking up a DVD player to a LCD TV


Typically, there is no video out from TV. You would have to connect the satellite receiver output to the DVD recorder input and connect the DVD recorder output to the TV. Word of warning - digital signals (DTV coax or HDMI) from the satellite receiver carry copyright info embedded, which may limit what it will allow you to put on a DVD. Typically anything can be recorded on the hard drive of the recorder, but programs from subscription channels may not go to a DVD.

Composite Video hook-up question


Generally, you only need one 'full' set of connections. If you are using s-video, you'll still need audio red and white or fiber...not both. Fiber is better. Where are you going to get your audio from? That's where you'll want to direct your feed. Some people cheat and run the red/white to the TV when they're too lazy to turn on the receiver! Mute it if it annoys you.

Denon DRA 395 volume creeps to max by itself


I also had this problem with my Denon DRA 395. I fixed it by replacing the batteries in my remote! Apparently when the remote batteries are nearly gone, but not 100%, they are capable of prompting the remote to unilaterally increase the volume at irregular intervals. It was kind of spooky!

Changing Channels


Unfortunately, no. The tuner in your DVD recorder works differently than how your satellite receiver works. You *must* use the satellite receiver to select the active channel, and then send that channel to one of the inputs on your recorder. You can then record that channel. Unless your satellite receiver is has "dual tuners" in it, you are stuck watching the same channel that the DVD recorder is recording. If your goal is primarily time-shifting of shows (as opposed to archiving shows forever to DVD), you might consider getting a different satellite receiver with a built-in DVR (hard disk recorder). These allow you to mark shows in advance, have them recorded to the hard drive, and then you can watch them whenever you want, skipping all the commercials. You also get the ability to pause and rewind live TV.
