Hello and sorry you're having problems. I may be able to help, but I need to ask for more info.
1) What's the Make and Model of the DVD player?
2) What is the model number off of the back of the TV?
3) Is this the first time setting up the DVD player on this TV?
4) What remote are you using?

DVD Player is a GoVideo mODEL # ***** 1140. tv d6501-c3. First time setting up on this TV, Using GoVideo Remote and Xfinity
Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.
Okay, you can't use the Xfinity remote to setup the DVD player. You need to grab the original Vizio remote for this. Connect the DVD player to the TV using Red,White and Yellow RCA cables to the Go Video's "DVD/VCR Audio Out/Video Out" connections. The Yellow cable goes into the "Y/Video" port on the TV- and the Red and White go into the "Audio In" connections on the TV. You then will use the Vizio remote's "INPUT" button to select the AV/Video Input (may also be termed "Composite"). With the DVD player turned ON, this will bring the DVD display up on your TV. From there you will use the Go Video remote to play, pause, and FF discs as needed. Use the VIZIO remote's "INPUT" button, to then get back to your Xfinity signal when finished watching a DVD.
