Re: no pictiure!

I suspect that the problem is your dvd isn't set on the same system as the tv. What I mean is try to change first in the tv options from pal/ntsc/secam? To the option that fits you best. You can try doing it threw the dvd option if the tv doesn't support this option. Good luck!!

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

I want to hookup my laptop with my 7.1 Onkyo HTR540 home theatre, onkyo has optical input, i am confused how to hookup with my laptop which also has HDMI port but my home theatre does not have HDMI Port

If you have a plasma, or otherwise HDTV display, what you would do is send you information in two different directions.

Connect the video directly to the display. Connect the audio through your home theater, and set both units accordingly.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable

Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.

No picture on Television

You have provided incomplete information. What do you mean by 'dvd player works'? Do you mean you are able to view the DVD movies on the TV? Or does it mean that there is power and various lights and indicators on the DVD player?If you are unable to see picture - both while viewing DVDs and also Broadcast channels, then there is a major problem with the TV.Get a professional to have a look, then. But if you are able to view DVD movies, but unable to view broadcast channels, then it is a simple problem of input selection. In this case just select the TV/Video or TV/AV button on your remote, if there is such a button. If no, then use the menu and scroll for input, and then select Tuner. First clearly state what your problem is. Only then we can give you better advice.
