I have the system hooked up but I have Directv and I am not sure if I hooked up the red/white/yellow sets in the right spot. I put it in the back of the Directv box, but only some of the speakers are working, and I can't figure out which buttons to push to make the theatre systems remoted co ntrol work or to watch the dvd's. They play , but I only see my directv channels.

Re: coby dvd 755 home theatre system hook to directv
The composite output (red, white and yellow) on the directv receiver should connect to the audio in (red and white) on the coby ht system. Then you have to select the correct input on the coby til you here the audio from the DTV receiver

What I believe they are trying to tell you is you need to hook up into a component input . It is a video input only and it has three jacks usually coloured red green and blue. Match up the colours with the receiver and you will get an HD picture. They way you currently have it hooked up is a composite connection with only the yellow being for picture. This cannot get you an HD picture. The red and white is for the sound. I don't know what you mean by he though.
I have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver. After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using this hookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv as usual...Now plug rca cables(red, yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directv receiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavox player...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that's ok) Now hook up up the dvd player to the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if your tv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available at walmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connections to the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)
Newer directv hd receivers must connect to the av input (yellow,red, white) connections on the back/front/side of your tv. If your tv only has one of these av inputs then you will need an RF modulator for your dvd player. You will connect the (yellow,red, white) connections from the dvd player to the rf modulator and then connect the tv out on the rf modulator to the tv rf jack ( the silver threaded barrel on the back of the tv) Tune your tv to channel 3 to watch a dvd and then back to the av input channel for the directv receiver.
the directv needs hookedup to the tv, also the dvd player needs hooked up to the back of the tv, what type of cabling are you using, red/white/yellow or coax (where it screws in) or does it plug in and say hdmi, etc.
plug one tv using coax (screw in cable). plug the other using composite video cables( yellow, red, white). It will be easy to connect the tv that's the farthest with coax, its cheaper to purchase 50ft of coax vs 50ft of composite video.
I believe this works - I've yet to try it myself!
