youre dvd is separate from our dish.
dvd will be connected to your tv via rca cables (red,white,yellow) to a video input
put a dvd in and push play
now take your tv remote and push either 'input' or 'source' till you see your dvd playing on tv.
double check your connections on your dvd to tv too.

with out further investigation its hard to know what the problem is. Press the dvd input button on the remote. Then make sure the dvd player ins on and then from the tv slowly cycle through all the inputs on your tv until you see a picture from your dvd player.

Your DVD and Dish Box are on two diffrent inputs on your TV. Use your input/source button to cyle thru until you find the right input. Make sure the DVD is powerd on so that your TV can see it.
Relax, I'm here to help!
look at the back of your dvd player and follow the output cables to the tv. that will tell you what input your tv needs to be on to view the dvd player. if it is a remote issue let me know and i can explain that as well
