Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hi, I'm Nathan.Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.
What is the model of the old dvr? Are you looking for help finding a new one to purchase?
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.
