    I have an old tube TV for now with a D11-100 box. They are connected with RCA cables. The old TV only has one video out which is occupied by the D11. No RF because it broke off. Can I connect my DVD/BD player to the output of the D11 using the RCAs?

    Well you stated it incorrectly from what I gather.

    You tv's rf input is broke off. The TV has 1 video "input" (not output) that the directv d11 is connected to.

    I take it that your asking if the dvd/BD player can be connected in some manner to the D11 in order to still playback on the TV----the answer is NO.

    You can buy a cheap composite a/v switcher that both the D11 and the DVD/BD player can connect to 2 of the inputs and the output of the switch connectes to the input on the tv to accomplish what your wanting to do.

    No, the output of the D11 is an OUTPUT, it wont accept any INPUT from your DVD player. You would need a switch box to select either the D11 or the DVD player to go to your one input on the TV.

    What's the point of the 2nd set of RCA connections?

    Well there are several reasons.

    One output to the tv, the other output can be connected to vcr or dvd recorder, or even a PC for that matter for program recording/archiving.

    Or

    Take the second set of outputs for music playback on a whole house music system.

    Those are just 2 examples......

    Am I the only one here wondering why someone is trying to connect a Blue Ray player to an old tube tv with a broken-off composite input?

    I think it's the RF input that's broken off. But I'm so confused about inputs being referred to outputs and other terminology translations that I'm hopelessy lost and can't offer any suggestions other than "buy a new TV".... :p
