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.

My guess is that your DirecTV box is outputting in a format your television does not recognize. Some models of the DirecTV box have a button on the front of the box for formats (480,720,1080) and you may be able to press that button until the picture comes in clear.
If there is no button:
1: Try an alternative connection tyoe to the TV from the box (if available, like RCA or coax), then switch the TV to that new input. If you get a clear picture with that connection, then in the settings menu for the receiver there should be format settings where you can select which formats to output. one of the selected formats chosen would be causing the problem. Change or remove one of the formats. (. I.e. if 720 is selected, deselect it.) After that switch back to the original connection and input to test.
or 2: The DirecTV box could be connected to a different TV and in the settings menu for the receiver there should be format settings where you can select which formats to output.
Another unlikely possibility is that the HDMI cable or slot on the TV itself is bad. Try switching the cable or try a different slot in the TV if available.
you will need:
run audio cables from yourmusic source to the reciever that should work but if your music source is away from the reciever then get an rf modulator and put your music source by your reciever and the put thevideo cable from your music source to the rf modulator and tthenrun a coax cable to the tv and then run the audio cables from the music source to the input on the reciever. for example i have my direct tv box sound running through my reciever and speakers, and to have musicfrom the direct tv box going through my speakers i put the audio cables from my direct tv box into the audio input on the reciever and then the video cable into the rf modulator and then from the rf modulator i ran a coax cable to my tv then i had my sound from the direct tv box going through my reciever and the video on the tv.
plz tell me if this works :)\
Not sure if I understand what is happening here but if set on channel 4 the connection for the direct TV would have to be to the coax fitting on the rear of the set.
For the audio/video inputs on the rear or side it would have to be the same ones coming out of the direct TV box to one of the same but inputs on the rear--Audio/video are one connection and coax for channel four is a different one.
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.
First of all any make or model tv will work with any directv receiver as long as it is connected properly. In my expierence Sharp TVs are compatible with all directv recievers. Is the directv remote not functionly properly with your sharp tv or do you have a black or snowy display. Your tv has to be on correct input in which the technician should of educated you on this instead of suggesting the purchase of a sony branded tv. Black or snowy display indicates the wrong input. Using the tv remote find a button labeled source or av or input and try pressing that button until you see a picture. otherwise call directv tech support at 800-347-3288 and demand that this issue is resolved immediately.
If you are trying to connect a VCR to your television and still have Directv, this is the way to do it. Disconnect your Directv receiver from your television, Then connect the VCR to the television either through coax or RCA cables. If using the coax cable connect the out to tv on the VCR to the television. If using RCA cables connect the RCA OUT to the television AV1 connection. Once that is done, connect tha Directv receiver to the VCR using either coax or RCA cables. the Directv receiver only has RCA outputs so, if using RCA cables connect to VCR in. Remember that in order to see the Directv the VCR needs to remain on and it must be on the channel line in. If using coax cable connect to the VCR where it says in from antenna. Remember that if using this method your VRC does not have th remain on to view Direct. If you're trying to record Directv, then your VCR need to be on the same channel as the Directv output channel either channel 3 or 4. If trying to record Directv using RCA connections the VCR needs to be on the AV settings. If you have any futher questions please feel free to call me at (361)510-0339

First, how is the receiver connected to your TV? If it's via coax, the most likely culprit is the coax from the TV to the rcvr. If you wiggle the coax and the snow goes away, you've found the answer. If it goes away, either get a new piece of coax or tighten the connection at both ends.
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.
ok here is what we woud do if we were to come yo your house on a service call. Fist look at your spitter that wire may have come loose or some dirt may have got in to the wire end and bocking your positive connection. 2) ook at all coax ends may have threads of the grounding shield touching the connector.3) your piece of coax to that reciever may be going bad. 4) your nb is going bad or even our reciever if it is your wire run a new line of rg6 coax, if its the ends replace all ends,lnb or reciever cal directv especiay if you have the insurance coverage on your equipment hope this helps anymore questions dont hesitate to ask.
