I have a Samsung TXK2566 with Direct TV and a JVC DVD/VCR hookup. I just got this tv a couple weeks ago from a friend and I cannot get DVDs or VHS tapes to play. The satellite goes into the Direct TV box, that outputs to the DVD player, and that runs to the TV like my old working setup did. I can still get the TV to play from the Direct TV box even if the DVD player is turned off, so it is bypassing through there somehow. Any thoughts?

As far as I can remember, the original JVC remote doesn't support a DVD player. It doesn't have the necessary buttons to control the player functions. You'll need to stick with the original Apex remote if you have it, or look for a universal remote that is compatible.
may be your tv systems don't have an accessory for audio video input. but you can hookup that by using an RF modulator adapter, this is a converter from audio / video to RF signal and connected directly to your antenna connection. you can purchase that RF modulator adapter to an electronics store.
Look for any button either on the unit or the remote marked with common stuff like A/V, Input, Source, Aux or Au, Line, TV-VID. or try dialing in Channel 0, or 00, or 1, or Channel Down surf below Channel 2. Alternately, get into the menu and look for stuff concerning Auxiliary inputs.
If all else fails, you can run a DVD's audio and video line-signals THROUGH a VCR. Hookup the VCR to the TV's RF (threaded) connector using standard coaxial cable. Hookup the DVD a/v output lines to the Line-ins of the VCR. Tune the TV to Ch. 3, tune the VCR to Line-in or Auxiliary and press the play or tv/vid button on the VCR to force the DVD signal through on channel 3 onto the TV.
On some sets you can use the menu button to enter the menu and navigate to the page which shows what input is currently selected and change it there. If your set does not have that option, then you will need the remote to do it. I have found that on some universal remotes, the TV/VCR button switches the inputs on the TV when the remote is in the TV mode. If that button does not work on your remote for your set, and you have tried all possible codes for JVC TVs, then the only way to switch inputs is to invest a few dollars more and get an original remote from JVC or have the set repaired so that the input button on the TV functions again.
