How do I watch my DVD player through my Comcast settop box?

by eventdiva / September 14, 2008 10:53 AM PDT

I have hooked up my DVD player (Philips DVP1013) to the Comcast DVR box - because my TV is too old and does not have any place to input audio or video.

Question: How do do I watch the dvd player through though the settop box? The TV/DVD button does not do anything, plus the DVD player is not hooked in directly to the TV.

Any suggestions? Is there a channel to set to? Or am I having a blonde moment?

Thank much for your help, I just got a couple movies I'd like to watch tonight.

First Suggestion: Buy a new TV, it's time.
Second Suggestion: Buy an RF Modulator so you CAN hook up a DVD player to your current TV without the cable box. If you hurry, I bet Fred Meyer is still open; they have those for ~$30

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
