    Why do you want to go into the satellite receiver? Your best option would be to go HDMI from the dvd straight to the tv. If one or the other doesn't have HDMI - then go component. Always try to avoid going into multiple sources when connecting video. The less "hands" touching it - the better.

    The Directv box should have at least two sets of out puts. You did not say what receiver you have and if the dvd is a player only of a recorder so its hard to say how to connect it.

    If you have a dvd player only then take the output from the dvd player and connect it to you tv's second input, HDMI or component or what ever is a match between the two unites.

    If you have a DVD-Recorder that you want to record programs from the directv receiver then take the second output from the receiver and connect it to the input on the DVD-Recorder and connect the output as above.

    the only receiver that can take an a/v input would be the phillips dsx5500 receivers. d* doesnt distribute them anymore so chances are likely you would have to run a/v jacks to your tv if it has the input for it. if the tv doesnt have the inputs then you need a rf modulator.
