Can you hook up a dvd player while dish network is also hooked up?

I have Dish Network (dual receiver with DVR) and currently the way I use my DVD player when I want to watch a DVD is to unhook DN and hook up the DVD player. I would like to have it all hooked up so that I can just turn on whichever I want to use without all the hooking up and unhooking. I googled to see what I might need to do this and the only answer that I can find is ONE that says you can't do it because it will scramble your signal to prevent piracy. I thought I'd give it a shot here, though, and see if any of you have both hooked up. I also searched the DN site and didn't find anything. I feel like this is a very simple thing and I'm making it too hard (again!). If it can be done, what do I need to purchase to do it?

Halloween is Right around the corner.. .

Date: 1/3/2009 9:05:00 PM  From Authorid: 10657    I have hooked mine up before but, I was on direct tv and regular cable so, hmm.

And, it was a dvd recorder too so, I'm not sure if that matters
Date: 1/3/2009 9:14:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 8941    Thanks. It is driving me crazy because I have pilates dvds that I love to use, but it is more of a workout dragging the DN box out of its little cubby hole, unscrewing the cable, dragging the DVD out of its cubby, screwing it in...

Date: 1/3/2009 11:44:00 PM  From Authorid: 49689    kinda like on older tv's with vcr's you would use an A/B switch to switch between an antenna/cable and the vcr..now it can be done with the tv tuner..usually the other inputs are going to be rca type plugs which are the fat round ones with a center pin,or an s-video which is a kinda round cable with about 5 small pins in the middle here is an example of a hi def hookup diagram with satellite and a vcr which if you replaced the vcr with a dvd player would be the same http://www.highdefforum.com/gallery/data/511/40System_Hookup.jpg

Date: 1/5/2009 11:34:00 AM  From Authorid: 46486    Yeah I know you can my friends was hooked up like that. Haven't seen you in ages Pyriel.
