Question about RCA RT2380 System

1 Answer

Computer TV out with S Video

I get no signal out to my tv when I try to display video from my computer. I have tv out on an nVidia 8800 GTS that works in dual display mode when I run the signal from the S Video connection to a converter box and go straight through to the tv via coax cable. When connected to the receiver, I get a black screen. The tv is older and has a coax input and RCA inputs for audio and video.

Is there a special setting to change the output format? Do I need to have the video goint to out to the TV on another S video cable for this to work? I can make this all happen by getting a coax switch for the tv signal but I would rather have a solution working that goes through the receiver and out to the tv via the yellow RCA cable so all my signals will be ready with the remote instead of manually switing the tv signal from cable to the converter to watch Media Center video.

You can use the yellow RCA cable using an SVideo adaptor. When using dual displays make sure that display number 2 is adtive. To do that move the mouse to display 2 press the right mouse button and select active. Check extend desktop to the monitor to check the signal and press apply. Make sure you are using either an Svideo or RCA signal.

The input from the component output does not display on the (sony) tv. The cables are good. Also the TV picture does not display . Can anyone help?


I take it is a video signal, is it analogue or digital, modern TVs need a digital signal and the old ones analogue, best to find out.

What to do if your TV won't take your Video/Audio cables


see, your DVD/Video device, outputs Composite Video & and an Audio signal, subsequently you must have AV inputs on your set they are Red & White (Audio) & Yellow (Video) RCA Jacks. If you do not have these then you are a bit stumped. You may however get a RF Modulator, this takes the Composite Video & Audio signal, and converts it into a TV Signal that can be "Received" on a TV Channels.
I have included a link so you understand what I am talking about.

Make sure the video signal is making it to the TV. You don't say how you've connected the DVD player to the TV. If you're using HDMI cable, there should only be one connection from DVD to TV. If you're using other inputs (component video or s-video) you need audio (right and left) and a video signal connected. Make sure they're both connected to the same Input section on the TV. Make sure the TV is set on the correct input that you connected the video signal to.

Connecting a computer to a LX3600D Home system


Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.

For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.

If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.

For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer

If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that

Nvidia graphics cards seem to work best in this area.

If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.

Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.

Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.

Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%

Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.

Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.

I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture.

No video signal from dvd player to tv.


Double check the way you've got the cables connected.  Audio but no video generally means that the yellow video cable isn't hooked up correctly.
Check to make sure the video cable (yellow) is hooked up to the same input on your television that your audio (red and white) cables are.

I want to connect the Audio from tv to Surrounding audio system


For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,

Samsung ht-tx72 Issue


GEnerally speaking that behavior suggests that the video signal is being lost for a second and returns. The easiest thing to try is to replace the connection cable (video). A bad connection there could cause this although moving the cable should make this happen at will. Check the DVd player on another TV if possible. If hte player is the cause, the "new" TV should show the same symptoms.

The only other possibility is that the DVD player is having a problem generating the video signal. This could be because the disc is not being read correctly (I would expect the sound to be effected as well) or the video processing section of hte DVD player is defective. This wil be a bit more difficult to find.

Can you try the cable and other TV and update this?

Thanks,
Dan

Black and White video on S-Video output


The Concept of S-video is Splited Video Signal (Luminance for black and white, Chrominance for colors), in your case the luminance is ok but there is no chrominance out. Expert technician is required: Check for dry solder at the s-video out outlet. Good Luck Toufic Malek
