I was given this TV and I don't have a owners manual or a remote for it. I am trying to hook up my DVD player, but I can't figure out how to get the TV into video mode. I have gone through the menu and didn't see it there. I put the TV on channel 3 and played a DVD and the screen didn't change at all.I have cable on this TV. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: DVD player not showing on tv
I'm not sure, but, if you use the channel down button on the television, the set may go to the video inputs.
If not a local retailer should have an inexpensive universal remote that would work on this set and have an input or tv/video button.
If you use a cable box, the remote can be programed also.
If you need more help, reply to this post and I can come up with more solutions when I get to my shop next week.

Because this product is a combination of a VCR and a DVD recorder, you must select first which component you wish to operate with VCR/DVD DVD mode Press DVD on the remote control. Verify that the DVD indicator is lit VCR mode Press VCR on the remote control.(Verify that the VCR indicator is lit OR I set up this pdf link...click on it and it will show you all necessary steps http://www.helpowl.com/manuals/toshiba-dvr670-owners-manual-english-70453af.pdf
You may need to check the age of the remote. The codes in a universal remote generally only control those devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed. If your RCA DVD player is newer than your remote, you may need a new remote.
I ASSUME YOU DON'T HAVE A REMOTE FOR YOUR TV EITHER SO...
I WOULD EITHER PURCHASE AN INEXPENSIVE UNIVERSAL REMOTE COMPATIBLE TO THE DVD PLAYER AND EITHER USE PATCH CORDS, OR AN A/B SPLITTER, SO YOU CAN GO OUT THE DVD INTO THE TV...THE SAME AS YOU WOULD HOOK UP A VCR.
YOU DON'T NEED A REMOTE FOR EITHER, YOU CAN TURN BOTH ON AND OFF MANUALLY...
YOU ONLY NEED TO MAKE SURE THE TV IS SET TO THE SAME CHANNEL AS ON THE DVD PLAYER 3 OR 4.
HOPE THIS HELPS! I WOULD APPRECIATE A RATING FROM YOU.
use a video splitter for the audio and video, or go out of the DVD player in to the DVR, out of the DVR into the TV (WARNING!!!! Trying to hook a DVD player to any recording device may trigger the copyright protection, causing blue flashes, and distorted pictures)
