I have a Hitachi 55hdt51M 55" plasma monitor/TV with no AVC75 controller. Can I operate this monitor/TV without a controller box vias some sort of direct hookup? The only input connection is labeled "in...

You can use either input to use the monitor as long as you have the correct cable. HD15 to DVI can be converted and so can HDMI to DVI. Only hold up is the type of DVI. There are three types and I cannot remember for sure the designation but I believe there is an I, S and a D. The device will have to be able to display in a matching format.

I cannot connect my direct tv

The S-Video connections have the same 4 prongs & 1 plastic guide always. You are trying to plug it into a factory-service port on the bottom (looks similar to S-Video, but it's not it). Instead, connect the S-Video wire to Input 3 on the back of the AVC (Audio Video Control Center). The AVC is the box that came with the TV.

I got this tv from a friend but it needs a "control box"

This model has all its connections through an "AV control center" connected by a cable to the main unit. This is the "box" you don't have.

You can get a copy of the manual here:

You'll probably need to contact Hitachi at one of the numbers in the manual or through their website about getting one of these control centers. You could also try eBay and search online for possible sources. But the set isn't very useful without the box.
