I just bought a TruTech T650-DR because it has an antenna input. However when I hooked everything up the audio coming from any DVD disc is harsh static. The sound momentarily clears when a disc is starting up but quickly deteriorates to pure static. My TV sound (for channels through my antenna) works fine but not through the DVD player. Is the problem in the TruTech player? Should I just trade it in for another? Any suggestions welcome

The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD Recorder and the TV.
If you have an older TV that only accepts RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality) option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.
Ive never seen a standalone DVD recorder that can connect to a pc unless it had a Hard Drive. This model is a Target exclusive company. These devices are designed to record video direct from either Antenna,Cable,VCR,or something such as a game console, or camcorder.
Note: In order for you to watch your TV your TruTech T650-DR must be on. Not shure what you mean by code? but setup go,s like this.
Out DISHNET to in on your Trutech T650-DR
Out TruTech T650-DR to in TV Note: the name of the input on your TV video 1 or video 2.
Just like your DISHNET you need to be on Ch 3 or 4 what ever is open.
turn on your DISHNET and your Trutech T650-DR Do you see a Trutech logo on your TV?
If yes, Keep pressing the source Button on your Trutech T650-DR remote Tell you have a TV Ch. then press the return button.
use your DISHNET remote to watch your tv.
thats it hope I could help.
Make sure you plug your camcorder into the in on the dvd recorder. Make sure the dvd recorder is set to that input. you may need to hook it up to a tv and make sure you see your camera on the tv going through the dvd recorded to make sure you have it on the right setting. Make sure you camera has playback out turned on.
Frist your Trutech needs to be set to Ch 3 or 4 what ever is open. if you dont see a Trutech Logo on your TV, then you need to go back to your TV and find the input Ch to your Trutech T650-DR.
If you do see the Trutech Logo then next on your Trutech T650-DR remote keep pressing the source button tell you see A Cable Ch. then press the return button.
You might try unplugging the unit for several minutes in an attempt to reset the logics from ROM... TruTech is just one of those WallyWorld/Target specials that have very little support and breakdown frequently.. If I might suggest, it sounds as though you haven't had this unit long - take it back and get your money for it and go out and get a major player in the market. At least when it breaks you can more easily get some support...
A lot of these off-brands we get in here for repair just aren't worth the time and effort to repair and you would be surprised how many brands there are...
