Can't figure out how to get s-video conections to work
I have Directv and have a problem with rolling picture on my tv. the rolling stops when the reciever is connected directly to the tv with coax but I have to go through the vcr. So I tried to connect the tv to the reciever with av cables just got sound ond no picture. Tried to use S-video connection to do it but I can't get anything. Is there a special channel for s-video. any other sugesstions would be helpful.

TV was working fine, moved to new home and the problem began. Picture rolls to the right, picture is fuzzy and will clear up somewhat at times. The picture will stop rolling at times also,but may be a half and half screen. Sound is fine, can you help me with this problem please.
VOD (Video on Demand) is selectable TV, films etc. So if you haven't used this service it won't show up on your viewing menu. You also need the correct receiver. Have a look at these links for further info.
Check the video input on the TV. Make sure the video out from the DTV receiver is secure, and the TV input is as well. Make sure your TV in set to the right video input, and if all else fails, try a new wire for the video feed between the TV and DTV receiver. If possible, if you have another DTV receiver in your home, move the second receiver to where the first doesn't work (including the wires for video). It is possible that the receiver has a problem and DirecTV is full of BS. Be careful, DirecTV and Comcast, etc., are notorious for passing the buck onto the consumer. Worst case if you only have the one receiver, go to BestBuy, get a second, check your TV with the new one, and then return it to BestBuy when you are done. Not nice, but they do sell these for DirecTv. If it is the receiver now you will know for sure and you can call them and lean into them about their lack of professionalism and service, and probably get some freebies thrown your way. Good luck and I hope this helps.
This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...
... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...
1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...
ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")
Monlink is the Connection I used with my Directv. All you need to use is the HDMI cords. Are you trying to also connect to stereo system or something other than a straight HDMI connection from Directv Box to WD-62525
If you have a Directv receiver, and you have to be on channel 3 on the TV to watch it, then we have to get you off the video input. On a Directv remote, there should be a button toward the top left hand side that says "TV input." Try pressing this first. If that doesn't work, then look for the button on the Insignia TV remote control that says "tv/video," "source," "input," or something along those lines. Press it (some TV's make you press it several times to change the input). Just make sure that your Directv receiver is on before you start pushing buttons.
you may want to check all of your coax conections and stray ground shield piece littl tiny silver mtal wire will cause that reaction or you may have a ad reciever if so if ou have the directv inurance they will replace it for no cost to you at all.
