Hello, Can you please post back with some details about the equipment used- I have no way of knowing what you have. 1) What's the make and model of the receiver? 2) What's the make and model of the DVD player? 3) What remotes are you using? 4) What are the devices doing, or not doing? Are they simply not displaying on the TV screen- or will they not even turn on? 5) How long have you owned them for, and were there any storms or power outages prior to this?
