The Verizon techs installed my FIOS system. I already have the router, DVR and standard TV connected and working. How do I add a DVD player to the mix?
I found wiring diagrams for my FIOS DVR, but they do not include my configuration. Here is what I found:
The above diagram includes an A/V receiver, which I don't think my configuration includes. The tutorial does not offer a choice of configuration that is just the DVR, standard TV, and DVD player.
Where do I find a wiring diagram that connects my DVR, standard TV and DVD player? Do I have to do anything to the router when I connect the DVD player? Sometimes I see references to set top boxes--are they the same thing as the DVR?
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Sorry to hear about you trouble.
If you are using a standard TV you need to check the back ports for RCA connections. They are listed as video/audio inputs, with color coding.
I sent you a PM if further assistance was needed.

Thank you very much, this works.
When I called Verizon for assistance, the rep kept insisting that I have a set-top box as well as a DVR in my configuration, when in fact I have a multi-room DVR that apparently serves as a set-top box. Anyway, the confusion over that muddied the waters and did not resolve my request for assistance.
Prior to FIOS I've connected my DVD players easily, but I was afraid to try to attempt it without instructions for FIOS. I wasn't sure if FIOS was more complicated than my previous cable system, and I was worried I'd mess everything up.
So thank you again!

How can I make a connection from a DVD Player to a standard TV having only a coax cable connection which is already used by VERIZON/Motorola SetTop Box QIP7100 P2 ?
The TV is a ZENITH, year make 1987!!!

Need more info.
What type of outputs do you have on your DVD player?
