Hooking it up correctly

I dont have an instruction manual and Im not sure what needs to be plugged in where. I have a 37" flat screen hdtv. And I also have a dvd player which I believe has to be hooked up with this to record from a dvd. Can you help me please?

If you hook up using the tuner in ILO you will lose digital signal to the HDTV (it will still go thru but only as analog) so... Use a splitter from the antenna coax to the "antenna in", then you can hook Ilo output to the tv inputs. You can watch/record analog through the ILO and still switch back digital non recording on HDTV thru its own separate tuner. Hook up the dvd player outputs to the ILO inputs(use the front ones is easiest) and then select SOURCE, pick corresponding inputs and enter. You can watch/record from other dvds that way but not from copyrighted ones, It will say protected content. I would only hook up dvd player temporarily to record from dvd player, then to watch dvd's just hook it up to HDTV. If you can select progressive scan on player to HD it might be even better picture but I don't have HDTV so I'm not sure how that works. Maybe more at this site: Someone says they are very similar recorders. The front covers are alike i know. Hope this helps.

Where is the model number and where do I put it in online to get the correct service manual?

If it does not have a regular 3 line cable connector on back of tv screen you need to buy an adapter for it. I know most of the TV's I have including a older flat screen they have the HDMI connection or the 3 cable connection with yellow,white,red connections on back of tv for these older devices. Rich

I have a flat screen vizio n I'm having trouble

Should be fairly straight forward. Red goes t red White to white and yellow to yellow. You can get an adapter that will plug your cables into one HDMI and this would be a much better way to hook it up. But It is pretty easy to Hook up just following The colors. Look where your hooking it up . And change your remote to that particular Accessory. Hope this helps.

My blu ray 3d dvd player will not show picture on blu ray discs only sound but will play regular dvds correctly

The video for blu ray disks come out of the HDMI port and that has to be connected to the TV for video. If it is connected, make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI port on the TV (assuming you have a flat screen HDTV).

My cdvd90w6sw portable dvd player, has a white screen when turned on and wont do there a fix for this?

Reverse the video with the Left audio plugs. This takes away the way from the DVDs if that is the operation you are trying to form. You only need the plugs set up this way if you ate hooking it up to a 42" flat screen tv or greater.

No sound

Make sure the red and white audio cables are plugged into the OUT of the dvdr, and the IN of the tv - and make sure the tv is on the correct source channel. If using a coaxial cable, reset the audio setting of the dvd first, and the tv second if that fails.
