Re: dvd player hook up
DOES YOUR TV HAVE AUX RCA INPUTS OR JUST A STANDARD ANTENNA CONNECTION. CAN U ACCESS CHANNEL 3 OR 4 ON THE TV..HOW DO U ACCESS UR VIDEO INPUTS. A POSSIBLE SOLUTION IS TO GET A MULTI INPUT SIGNAL SELECTOR FROM RADIO SHACK THAT WILL TAKE THE RCA AND CONVERT TO STANDARD ANTENNA CONNECTION TO PLUG INTO THE PORT

Your problem is that your TV has no video inputs. TVs use those red white and yellow plugs to transmit the signal via those cables. By cable box - do you mean a digital box? You can't run it through that unforunately - those connections are only for the box itself and it only has an output.
You'll have to go either: Buy a new TV or get an RCA Modulator.
Sometimes you can change the input by just clicking the channel button up >>> after the highest tv channel it'll go to Input 1, Input 2, etc. That's worked on one of my tv's but not all of them so it might work for you, too. Next suggestion would be to buy yourself a couple of universal remotes & keep them in a junk drawer for when you need one! We've found this PRICELESS!!! (Buy a couple when they're on sale & store them for those days when the remote was devoured by that oh-so-sneaky sofa!)
I was given a dwt1905 tv for my kids without a remote so they would have a tv for there dvd player and games plus cable comes to find out I was not able to control anything I listed above with my cable remote because there is no codes you have to buy the remote from the company I called 3# before I was able to find out anything about a remote the contacted # is 1-800-242-7158 and the cost was 19.99 for a new remote that is the only way you will be able to work the tv with dvd player,game systems and cable I hope this helps........ good luck
Hi you have obe of two options have you tried leaving the dvd plugged in then switch it off at plug leave the telly on then switch the dvd on at plug then switch dvd on usually it pick up the signal on it own if this dont work you will then need to buy an all in one remote let me know how you get on ok. These remotes are cheap to buy and do work
If it is a durabrand dwt1304, you cannot switch the input to EXTERNAL (the front jacks) without a remote. There is a good one at Radio Shack for eight bucks, the 3-in-1 remote. The program code is 0171, and you switch the TV inputs with the A/B button.
If the TV has a tv/video button on the front panel you can switch to video and just operate the DVD with the DVD remote If there is no TV/VIDEO switch then you will need a universal remote with TV/VIDEO menu,PIP etcIf you dont have a remote for the dvd player the solution is basically the same a universal remote howerver you can operate the dvd player from the front panel
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.
I am not sure about Direct TV but dish network does not allow the hookup to go through their box...it must go through the TV only. Speaking with Duraband at 1-800-256-2487 confirms you have to have a Duraband remote and universals won't program to it. Ask for parts dept. and order a new remote. Sorry - not good news for me either!!!
