If you think the player is connected through the cable box, any idea what type of connections? (not that common to do this ) or what make and model of DVD player?
The cable box may have to go to ch 3 on the TV, usually the dvd players would require an input (video 1) or something like that.
Now before anyone says I need to provide more info let me explain. I am house sitting and I have limited info. I can get the DVD player to work, becuase I can hear the sound of the previews, but I get no picture. I have no manuals (my best friend at home) and no access to a teenager. It appears that the DVD is hooked up through the cable box. I have 3 remotes, one for each. The cable plays through channel 3. I believe I am not choosing the correct options on the remotes - but after multiple attempts both from the remotes and the devices themselves, I don't have a clue.
I am here for a while so any help is more than welcome.
