I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?

Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

Connecting dtv box to vcr to dvd to the tv

you can hook the cable box into the vcr and then out of the vcr into the spliter which will turn your tv red/white/yellow signel input into two inputs( you can get this at most radio shacks for about $7.00 dollors) this leaves you with one more input for the dvd player

Connecting the dvd player and the vcr to the tv

On the DVD player you hook the red/white and yellow cords from the DVD to one of the inputs on the back of the TV colored the same. Provided you have another RCA jack input on the tv you can connect this the same way. If not and you have a cable connection or satellite just run the coax into the input on the VCR and run a coax off the output on the VCR and run the other end into the TV. I hope this is of assistance to you.

Connecting coax to my DVD/VCR combo

For the DVD portion, you need to use either composite, component, or possibly S-Video or HDMI. DVD players do not utilize coax, since they do not incorporate tuners. However, since you have indicated it is also a VCR, it should have a coax input/output for that. perhaps it is a player only and doesn't have a tuner? But I have never heard of this in a combination unit. At any rate, if it truly does not have a coax input, then you will have to leave the coax connected directly to your TV and use the above mentioned connections between the home theater, TV, and DVD/VCR unit. Audio between the DVD/VCR and home theatre, and video between the DVD/VCR and TV

Fading dvd picture

DVDs are recorded in Macrovision* format which distorts the video when playing through a VCR. This is an anti recording device to prevent duplication. You can try finding a decoder that connects between the player and VCR to override this

This sounds like a compatability issue.
If you buy a new DVD, you gotta buy a new T/V to go with it.
Alternatively, you could try a scart box and cable through that.
Or try outputting through the antenna via coax, see if any of these resolve your problems.

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.
