I have connected my Toshiba DVD/VHS player to a standard Directv box. I can't play a DVD. I get no picture or sound but the DVD is playing. What do I do?

Is this Toshiba a "recorder" or just a player? There's no way to connect a playback device to your DirecTV box because it has no audio/video inputs. It only has outputs that can be connected to your TV or VCR/DVD Recorder.

you need to connect your DVD player directly to your TV, DirecTV receivers has no inputs, only outputs

would have to connect the receiver to the VCR and if aware of VCR inputs will have to utilize the inputs ussualy connects through coax only be aware of in and outs on the VCR

OK. If it's also a recorder, then try these steps ....
The typical setup to record from your DirecTV Reciever/DVR to a VCR or DVD recorder is:
* DirecTV Receiver/DVR Audio/Video Output -> matching TV A/V Input (e.g. INPUT1)
* DirecTV Receiver/DVR A/V Output -> matching DVD/VCR Recorder A/V Input
* DVD/VCR Recorder A/V Output -> matching TV A/V Input (e.g. INPUT2)
Use the TV's Input/Source Selector Function to switch between the DirecTV receiver and VCR/DVD Recorder. To record on the DVD/VCR Recorder, select the DirecTV Receiver/DVR Input on the recorder, set the DirecTV Receiver/DVR to the channel to record (or play a recording to copy on a DVR), and start recording on your DVD/VCR Recorder.
