The coax output is just a passthrough. You need to go to the TV through the RCA output even if you have to go through a VCR or other component.

I have just bought a new PD-DVR100 DVD recorder and am trying to use it but when i press setup nothing else shows for me to make any settings.

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in using the DVD Recorder. Based on the information you have provided, please follow the below troubleshooting steps and check the operation:

Please make sure that the connections are secure and proper. (You have not mentioned the type of connection that you're using to connect the Recorder to the TV. You may use Component, S-Video or Composite Video connection to setup the Recorder with the TV).

Please make sure that you have selected proper input on the TV to view the setup screen of the Recorder on the TV screen. (Most of the TVs have an INPUT button or TV/VIDEO button to change the input. If you're not sure with the input selection method, you may refer the manual of the TV or get back to me with the exact model # of the TV so that I can help you with INPUT SELECTION)

Turn off both TV and Recorder and check the operation.

Unplug the Recorder from wall outlet for more than two minutes to perform a Power resetting and check the operation.

Try connecting the Recorder to the TV using a different cable.

If the issue persists, please get back to me with more details about the issue like the type of connection and model # of the TV etc.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarification on the provided steps.

Thanks for understanding.

Connectding audio/video cables when you have a cable box and sound bar with dvd player

How To Connect a DVD Recorder to a Television:
1.If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
2.To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
3.To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
5. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
6. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
7. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
8. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
9. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
10. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

We have a tv that has only the cable jack in the back but cant get my dvr to show on the TV...what do I need to do?

If the only connection on the TV is for a coax cable, then you'll need a small box you can get at most any store that has electronic parts. It lets you play DVD and VCR to older TVs like yours.
I'm not sure what they call this, but it sells for about $20 ± a few dollars.

Connecting protron dvd to dish TV

I hope you have at least 2 sets of RCA jacks for (1) the Dish receiver and (2) the DVD player. Run 2 sets of R/W/Y cables to the TV. Done. Or use S-video for a better picture instead of yellow.
If you only have one composite input on TV (possible) then either buy a 2-way or more switch for the composite signal (R=right sound W=left Y=composite or S-video instead of composite) or you can instead pass the signal through the DVD recorder on the RCAs but the DVD will be on whenever anything is on. I assume you do not have a Dish 111 with only RF output but the same could be done for just the wimpy RF, just different switch. So there will be 3 RCA cables from Dish to a recorder and 3 then to the TV. Since you do not have a recorder, then go back to the switch or find another TV input.
Ten years, hum, you may not have had composite/S-video inputs and would have to use RF only--you did not say what TV was.

How to eliminate error screen:"your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. please chose another tv input source."

"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"

Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV

If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

I cant get go video model #r6740 to be able to be connected to my cable box and still work help please

connect the yellow, white, and red cables from your cable box (output) to the (input 1) connector on the dvd recorder. Then connect the yellow, white, and red cables from your dvd recorder (output) to a (input) on your tv (make a note as to which input on the tv you use). then turn on your tv (set your tv by pressing input, line, or channel down from channel 2 until you see the input you connected your dvd recorder to). then power your dvd recorder on (you should see it on your tv screen), then change the input on your dvd recorder to input 1 (or which ever one you connected your cable box to). Then power on your cable box (now you should see your cable programming on your tv, passing through your dvd recorder). Now you should be all set to watch, and record what ever you want, (however most dvd recorders will not record copyrighted materal, their is a signal transmited ny the owner of the movie, or other content.)
