DVD is CineVision 1000 and is part of the TV, and Tuner surround sound.
The DirectTV box is a simple HD
I was using the Direct TV Remote,
Cable Connections: The Direct TV cable is connected from wall connector to the Receiver.
From the DTV receiver Yellow video out, White audio out, Red audio out.
Those cables branch out at the other end to the DVR. DVD/VCR out column has Red, audio out right, down to white audio Left, down to yellow video. VCR in column has white audio and down to yellow video
The power must be on the DVD player and the selection on VCR or the picture will be off the TV although the TV shows power on as does the DTV receiver.
The DVD/VCR has a cable that supplies the same picture and sound as the Toshiba to a supplemental Small TV used in an adjacent exercise area. The picture on the small tv is not out of proportion as is the Toshiba.
