    Plus, I need the output names on dvd and the input names on the tv.

    The TV's input is on cable/antenna. You need to change it to the input to which the DVD player is connected - like Video 1.

    left and right audio from dvd to left and right audio on tv..then one video cable from dvd to tv..I also have a DVR from the cable company..when I put my tv on video 3 to play the dvd all you hear is the sound from the tv..can see the picture from the dvd put no sound just the sound from the tv channel. I also have a receiver hooked up to the tv with surrond sound. It was working fine till I tried to hook up a TV guardian and the guy that sold it to us told me how to hook it up but it wouldnt work with our tv for some reason and now my dvd player sound will not work.
