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.

Hi Greg, i think your missing something simple.
Pick a channel number you want the Sky on, then in the tv set up
manually tune that channel to 68, or if it's showing lots of numbers for the frequency then just search towards the end and it should pick up. On the Sky box leave a menu showing so it's easier to spot when it gets to picking it up.

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

Setting up

on the back of your sky box there are two scart ports. one says tv and the other video.

from the sky box connect a scart from the tv port to the back of your tv.

from the DVD connect a scart from that to the video scart port on the back of your sky box.

now when you turn your DVD player on it will override the sky and come through on your telly without having to change the scarts around.

what i would like you to do now. is get an RF lead. ( aerial lead) plug this into the RF out socket on the back of your sky box either one will do ie RF out 1 or 2 makes no difference.
Then plug the other end into the back of your Tv if you have an aerial cable coming into your home then simply plug this straight into the aerial port on the back of your sky box.

The last thing your going to have to do now is tune your telly in. if you click on channel 6 on your telly then go to menu, setup, and manual tune.. A good tip for you put your sky on the TV GUIDE screen this will make life easier for yourself as you will know its the sky channel.
once you find it STORE.

now when you turn your dvd player on if you select channel 6 you will now have the sky channel so you can record whatever you like

Hope this sorts you out.
