I have audio but no picture, just "Video 1"

You didn't mention tv make / model so thjis is only a guess . The tv may need tuning to find the direct tv cable.

I have picture but no sound. We just had our surround sound system go out and are trying to run our tv on it's own internal speaker system. How do you hook it to our direct tv hd box


You need to use audio cables. Connect two red and white audio cables from the output on the HD box to the relative input at the back of TV (nr.4 in picture below). The best way to connect the HD box is by using component cables, that are the red-green and blue trio of cables, plus a white and red audio cables.

Here what you need:

Three plus two:
Component Video Cable
Audio Red / White Cable

or single set of five:
Cables Unlimited - Video / audio cable

Once you have the five cables, connect them to the output at the back of the Direct TV box, and then connect the other end of the cable to either group of connectors 6, or to one of the columns in connector 7. Do connection with box and TV power off. After re-applying power use the source-input selector on remote to select the source from Direct TV box.

How to set 42" Insignia from 780p-1080p.(don't know if that's the problem)T.v. connected to satillite and still get snowy ,blurry picture..My old t.v. with satillite looked better than this new t.v

You may need to adjust the native resolution passthrough setting on your satellite tv box. Besides that you set 1080i on the satellite tv box not the tv. The tv just picks it up automatically. You may call the satellite tv company directly to ask for assistance in completing these two things.

Used receiver at different location for 3 months.

Had repair man come. The coax connection going to TV from receiver had went bad in the receiver. The other connectors in box worked but not the coax anymore that is why the box worked on other TV since using video and sound cables. Got new box for signing up for another 18 months with Direct TV. Didn't have to have splitter to just get Satalite so that wasn't the problem at all. Any of the splitters I had would have worked.

No picture, just sound, can still see cable directory

Sounds to me like you may not have service on your cable box. I worked for a large cable provider for years and that was generally either a faulty box or the box just needed a "signal" sent to it. Try to bypass the box complety and just hook your service directly into your TV. You may need to go into you TV's menu, switch it to the cable setting and then auto search, but most likely the TV is new enought ath you should be able to get a picture. We do know that it is not a problem with the TV since you are able to view other devices on the TV. If you get a picture then we have narrowed it down to the bow. Although this may not mean that the box is bad. First let's ensure that if is installed correctly and that the input jack is the cable from the wall and that the output runs to the TV. Again you have sound so i know this seems dumb but so can be cable installers. :) Since we know all of that is correct and you still have sound but no picture, I'm going to say that you most likely have a motorola box and on the front of it there is a small button that has a/b next to it. (most commonly found on motorola box but not limited to). If that button does exist on this box i'm almost certain that will correct your problem. If not you have a faulty box and should ask you cable provider to replace it.

Audi but no picture when cable box conected through DAV-X1

It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.

why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.
