You can find the manual here:

They will make you enter your email address if you want to download the manual.

I'm not sure you'll need the manual if you have a newer TV and want to hook this up the way most people do.

Just about all new televisons have a variety of video inputs. Typically you use one for your Cable box, one for your DVD (or VCR). When you wish to watch cable you "tell" your TV you want to view that input and when you want to watch the DVD player you tell the TV that's the input to use. Most Cable Box remotes are set up to control the TV so you can change the input without having to use the original TV remote. You can also, generally, change the TV input from the front panel of the TV set. If you give me the make/model of your TV I may be able to help you figure out how to switch inputs.

But back to the DVD. I downloaded the manual and this DVD can generate output in a few different formats. The easiest will probably be the jacks numbered 2 which is the Audio There are two them, one is RED, and one is WHITE, and jack number 4. This is the Video and will be YELLOW in color. I'll be the DVD player came with a cable set that has three connectors on each end. They will be colored YELLOW, RED, and WHITE.

You should simply need to plug one end of this cable set into the jacks mentioned above on the DVD player and then plug them into one of the inputs on your TV. Pay attention to which TV input you use because you'll need to select that input to watch the DVD.

If you have an older TV we will need to use a different method to hook up the DVD player.

Now for the editorial section. I'm not paid for this. I know it's a strange hobby, but I like helping when I can. If you have more questions please ask before you rate this solution. If anything I've offered here has been helpful I hope you'll rate this solution positively. About half of the solutions I've offered have never been rated. Thanks and good luck.

No suround when watching tv with sky + box,

You will need a DVD player with an optical output, as the sky engineer said. A Co-axial S/PDIF output could also work if your surround sound has that input, however not all units transmit surround encoded sound through the Co-Axial output. Only option really is to upgrade if that doesn't work

Remote code

You won't be able to use it for your dvd player unfortunately.

The code for sky is 0145.

1) Switch on the TV set
2) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote
3) Hold down the select and red buttons for 2-3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
4) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote again
5) Enter the 4 digit code for your make of TV
6) The LED should blink twice, if not recheck the 4 digit code used and go back to 1
7) Press the standby button on the Sky Remote (The TV should go to standby)
8) Press select to store this setting
If the TV does not go into standby press the TV button then the standby button, then TV then standby, keep repeating this until successful.
