Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player


Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

Component to HDMI Converter Problem


Does the TV have a plug connection I think is called DVI. There is a DVI to HDMI adapter that also needs an audio connection on TV to work. Other option is audio and video rca cables. You may also need to change input connection to correct source, as it may not be auto for connection

Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.

If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component.html . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.

A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)

I hope this helps.

(Pioneer PDP-4340HD Plasma with PDP-R04U Receiver) My HDMI input works, however having a computer or Xbox connected via HDMI I do not have the optical output signal thus I can not hear audio through my...


I don't have a direct solution but I am having the same problem when connecting (1) my Apple TV (2) my Blu-Ray player, etc. via HDMI. I also have a digital camera that puts out HDMI, and when I hook it up, I get the same story -- video only, no sound through the optical digital output of the TV receiver.

I am guessing that the HDMI inputs were an afterthought on this model, especially since the printed manual doesn't even show or mention the HDMI inputs at all! So my guess is that the TV's receiver does not convert the sound from the HDMI to the optical digital output. It does, however, send the amplified HDMI sound to the stereo speaker outputs on the monitor. It appears that only the digital tuner's 5.1 sound comes out on the optical digital output.

This is what I have observed, for what it's worth.

Is there a way to hook up a HDMI connector to my WS-48413


Yes, there are several ways to hook up your HDMI to your TV but first, we need to understand that HDMI carries both audio and video signals though a single cable in digital form.

I am assuming you want to connect a device such as a digital cable box, Blu Ray or HD DVD player with an HDMI output to your TV. Since your TV has both digital (DVI) and analog (S-Video, component, etc) inputs, my suggestion would be to get and HDMI to DVI adapter (about $20 at buy.com) for your video and for your audio, use any RCA audio cable (I use the one from the Dollar Store). This would give you the best video resolution from your source device.

My next suggested solution would be to get an HDMI to component video + audio cable (< $10 at eBay for a 6' length) for a single-cable fix. Again component video carries analog signals so the DVI could be a better viewing experience but because the cost of the cables are minimal, I would try both solutions to see which fix would give you the better picture.

Note that since the audio is being run though RCA connectors in both instances, the digital Dolby, 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound tracks in high definition sources will not be reproduced if you connect your TV's audio-out to your audio receiver. To get the best audio, I would connect the HDMI device's digital out (optical, coaxial, etc) directly to the receiver.

Hope that helps. Have fun!

Input 6 - HD Input - Green Screen. Audio Only. No picture.


Hi there,
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...

Single HDMI Input. Need to connect several HDMI components


Number 1 would be to connect the 3 Devices to a Receiver with 3 HDMI Inputs, So this way you get the HDMI Audio as well. 3 in and 1 out to the TV as you know. The other way would be to get a Key Digital HDMI 3 to 1 Switcher. I have used these a lot in the field on installs and they work Great. They also have 4 to 1 if you think you might need more. No programming of the piece you just plug in and setup your TV in the HDMI Menu and your other Devices. If they don't sync AUTO! The Receiver would be Best I feel, Some let you assign 2 different Video and Audio sources at once. Such as Video from a Game and Audio from a CD. Hope this helps out!
