If you would have had an AV receiver it would have been a lot easier. But since it's a stereo and without video capabilities follow this:
You will need 4 cables: 2 audio and 2 video (ideally these 2 should be either for RCA composite connectors or HDMI, if the dis receiver has it).
Now look at the back of the tv at the AV inputs and identify the correct connector - plug the video cables in the AV 1 and 2, the video connector of them of course. Next look at the stereo receiver, at the rear you will see a few sets of inputs/Line In RCA connectors - plug in first 2 the audio cables.
Finally start connecting the devices: pick the satellite receiver and plug in it at the rear the video and audio cable from the 1 position ; do the same with the rest of the cables and the dvd player. That's all.
To use them start all of them then select the corresponding sources: for the satellite select AV1 on the tv to get the image and Line In 1 to get the sound; for the dvd select 2 on both.

    On all modern appliances the RCA connectors (round jacks with a hole in the middle) are clearly marked - look at the letters below (or to the right) of them and their standard colouring , they will tell you for what they are used to - and grouped in a set.
    The easiest way to connect your devices is to buy 4 cheap cables (less than $15 each) like that
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RCA_Co...
    Just make sure they are long enough for your arrangement.
    On two of the cables you are going to use only the Yellow (Composite video) connector  - use it to connect the yellow jacks of your sat dish receiver and dvd player to the yellow connector from the AV1 and AV2 sets of connectors from the tv.
    From the other 2 cables you are going to use the  White (Left channel) and Red (Right channel) audio connectors to connect the corresponding jacks from the sat dish receiver and dvd player to the Line In 1 and Line In 2 set of connectors from the stereo receiver.
    Once you have plugged the cables where they should go all you have to do is to select the correct source - AV 1 or 2 on the tv, Line In 1 or 2 on the stereo - to use them.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

Connecting tv with dish satelitte reciever and dvd player


"I would like to be able to record from the satelitte."

Are you trying to record your satellite programming onto a DVD recorder? If so, the recorder needs to be connected between the satellite receiver and the TV. If this is still a problem please indicate the recorders make and model number.

Can't program coby dvd 224 help


Shana, What are you really trying to do!!!! Do you understand what the jacks on the Coby DVD player are for?? Can you connect the Coby player directly to TV AUX inputs and play a DVD?
Is the satellite 'box' still connected to TV/Monitor using TV Tuner set to chann 3 or 4? Is the TV you
are trying to use have any or none of those YELLOW/RED/WHITE jacks on the back of it that you
have never plugged anything into them. Is the TV always set to Ch3, and is never changed to any
other Ch number??? Do you only change Ch up or down using the satellite "box" tuner? ALL these
questions and more must be answered by you before anyone can help you out. You must know your
own equiptment and its capabilities. The COBY Player will never be found by the satellite dish tuner.
comments or info send to lmistyrel @ aol.com

Hooking up a DVD player to a LCD TV


Typically, there is no video out from TV. You would have to connect the satellite receiver output to the DVD recorder input and connect the DVD recorder output to the TV. Word of warning - digital signals (DTV coax or HDMI) from the satellite receiver carry copyright info embedded, which may limit what it will allow you to put on a DVD. Typically anything can be recorded on the hard drive of the recorder, but programs from subscription channels may not go to a DVD.

Multiple video inputs


Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.

Having trouble hooking up my DVD player


Try looking on your tv's menu for "input" or "input select". This should allow you to switch to your front AV inputs. If that doesn't work hook into the coaxial cable in the back of the set (the one for your cable or satellite input. Plug the cable from the output or to tv side of your reciever into the input of the dvd player and run another lenghth of coaxial cable from the output of the dvd player to the coaxial input where your satellite or cable was plugged into the back of your set. When you want to watch a DVD just turn on the DVD player and the picture should come up. When you turn it off your satellite or cable should come right back.
