Can't find a channel to watch a DVD pre-recorded DVD

I have an inexpensive Symphonic TV (WF206) and a used Samsung DVD player. I have the cables hooked up but can't find a channel on the TV to watch a DVD. I hooked up the wall cable to the DVD then hooked up a cable from the DVD output to the TV. My TV will go over 100 channels with the remote but I still can't find a channel to watch a pre-recorded movie. The TV in the the main room has AUX1 and AUX 2 channels but I can't find those. We have Time Warner Cable. I'm wondering if my TV just isn't cable of finding the channel for the dvd player.

You should have a input select button on your remote. video 1 should be the front and video 2 should be the back. i had to buy 3 or 4 different universal remotes when mine messed up just to get the one button to change to change it to the inputs because there is no other way to change it to that with he buttons on the tv. kinda surprised that you didn't try and push that button yet.

How do i hook up a dvd player to my tv if i have cox cable? I dont know what channel to put my tv on. I know there has to be a way to watch a dvd without unhiiking the cable


Most DVD players have a coax input and output on them. But some newer ones don't. Assuming your does then you can run your DVD player to your TV with a coax cable you bet. Either on the back of the DVD player there will be a little switch or in the menu settings it will give you an option for channel 3 or channel 4. The same channel you select on the DVD player will be the same channel you will want to put your TV on. For the coax install run it from the output on your DVD player to the coax input on your TV. If you use a coax for cable too then just run you coax from the output on your cable box to the input on your DVD player.

I have Time Warner cable. I have a Symphonic SR90VE vcr/dvd that I have hooked up to the main TV. The cable box services a second tv in another room. I can't seem to get the main tv and the vcr/dvd player...


Cable goes to vcr cable INPUT, then run cables from vcr OUPUT to tv INPUT or AV.

Then put tv on input or av channel or channel 4 and use put the vcr on the channel you want to record.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

Hook up


What channel do you have your TV on...3 or 4? Match that setting on your V5500, hit the TV/VCR button and you should have onscreen whatever channel the cable box is on.

Hook-up strategy


OK I will try to explain this...You need to go from your OUT TO TV output on your cable box and split that line so you have 2 lines coming out,then you can hook one to your vcr and one directly to your tv.Then you can watch tv while you are recording something on your VCR.I hope this helps
