Need to connect both the sound system and dvd/vcr set to our newly installed dishtv system (this is the HD 222 box,but we're not using any HD tv). The tech never hooked up the dvd set and now the sound doesn't work for the dvd, and the tv. I have plenty of coaxial and rca cable sets ready for use.

Sorry for having taken this long to answer your reply to my email; I was mistaken that I would have to pay for this .
Well, we got the whole system to work well, ended up using my (guest rm.) Amp to replace my wife's amp to run her audio section of her room system. And just hooked up the guest rm. tv/ to the dish box via the front aux RCA hookups and a headphone input on the tv's front. All works well for now, and thanks for all your interest back here in June, as it's Nov. now.
