If your TV has an OUTPUT MONITOR Output Jacks, Yellow, (Video) Red (Audio) & White (Audio) FEMALE RCA Jacks.Then these will output WHATEVER is showing on the TV screen. And can be used as an Output for any Recording Viewing device.
There will be other, FEMALE RCA Jacks,AV, Yellow, (Video) Red (Audio) & White (Audio) and possibly also The Composite Video, Red, Green, Blue, all Video, These are INPUTS, they will be there also. Make sure.
Newer TVs have multiple inputs. Mr Mark is correct, you generally do not daisy-chain Audio/Video units unless you are using a recording device. Cable box to Cable input on TV. DVD player to other inputs.
Let's get some terminology out of the way. Specifically for the Mintek DVD-1600. There are NO inputs.
Coaxial Audio out (orange) is for digital audio only. Usually connects to stereo reciever for Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Not for TV.
S-Video (black w/4 small holes, 1 square) is for better quality video than composite. Use this to TV instead of Composite if you have a S-Video input on your TV.
Composite (Yellow) Older video input type. Works just fine. Connect to TV.
Audio Output ( Red & White) for analog stereo only. Goes to TV. Red=right, White=left channels.
Component Video Out (Blue, Green White) is the newest video output type in this unit. Better than S-Video. Use this option if available on your TV instead of S-Video or component.
I think you would have to run your sat line through the DVR-1600 first (Line In) then connect directly from the DVR to one of your TV Line-Ins (Audio R, Audio-L, S-Cable Video). And then use the Cyberhome TV Tuner to record off your sat.
You can get a standard audio/video cable from any Radio Shack or audio equipment store. It will most likely come as a single 3-part cable with a yellow (video), white (audio left), and red (audio right) set of connectors on each end. Most equipment that's not too old will have matching color-coded sockets marked input/output. Simply plug the video/audio cable into the vcr output and the other end into the dvr input. then connect a second cord from the vcr output to the tv input. Then with everything turned you will be seeing the final signal on the tv and you can start the dvr when you are ready to start recording.
sometimes on the remote itself there is a video button to change over to diffrent mode, but at least should hear audio because thats on a totally diffrent output. i would try using a diffrerent output on the dvd player such as svideo, what were u using before on the out, was it component or the standard video out such as yellow output, you will have to use process of elimination..
