It is a new Phillips 43" and my old (15yrs) dvr is not compatable.

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Philips is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

NEW from Walmart yesterday

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I took out the old tv and installed the new one

I had a BBQ with all the family here and the guys think they are really good at this kind of thing and after hours of messing with it they gave up. TG! So now it is just you and me. I do have a tech coming out here on Saturday. I think that I should wait till then.

There is no reason that box can't work with your new tv. It is possible, you'd just have to accept some quality limitations as it won't be in HD.

You'd need to use the red/white/yellow ports (tv1, not tv2) on back of the dish box, to the back of the philips with red to red, white to white, and yellow to green. Then you set the tv to the Composite/AV input mode.

I would recommend you get a new dvr though, one that has a hdmi port so that you can take advantage of the full high def picture.
