    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
    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?
