is this the model number
VF550M

http://www.vizio.com/vf550m.html

whats the make and model of the DVD Player ,
whats the Dish components - is this a decoder? whats the make and model

We need to know the connections available on the devices - HDMI connections ,- the TV connections are listed here
INPUTS (REAR)
HDMI with HDCP 4
RF Connector for Internal Tuner 1
Component YPbPr plus Stereo Audio: 1
S-Video: 1
Computer RGB: 1
Composite Video: 1

INPUTS (SIDE)
HDMI with HDCP 1
RF Connector for Internal Tuner
Component YPbPr plus Stereo Audio: 1
Composite Video: 1
USB Ports: 1
so now we need to know if the DVD and the Dish decoder/tuner has those connections

Why would you connect a DVD player to a Dish Network receiver? Wouldn't you connect both components to the TV? Or do you have some kind of receiver involved as well?
