crazycamper,

Based on the information provided, I'm not quite sure what's wrong with the unit. Are you able to get a DVD picture, and unable to pause the DVD player, or is it a different question?

I apologize, but I'm trying to imagine the problem, and it'd be better if you could explain what you were trying to do. The DVD player should be doing the pausing, rather than the TV.
