Setting up HDMI / DVI port as a selectable Imput

How do I set the HDMI and DVI port/s as selectable imputs for DVD player recorders and Cable DVRs? I have a desire to use the HDMI instead of the normal imputs for my Cable DVRs and DVD player/recorder. Do I have to also connect a Audio Cable set with the HDMI or DVI Cable?

Are the HDMI and DVI ports Bi-Directional?

I appreciate any and all advice and help that you may provide.

Yes, Audio is still separate.

Are the HDMI and DVI ports Bi-Directional?
It goes one-way, Out from the source (DVD Players / some Game Consoles / Sat Receivers), In on the receiving end (Recorders / TV / Projectors).

A Receiver is perfect for your set-up. All Equipments that broadcasts audio/video signals goes into it, then from it goes to whatever Projector / TV you have.

You can only connect hdmi devices together, if your dvd doesn't have hdmi or dvi you can't connect it using that input.

if you provide me with models of your dvd player and other devices what you want to use, I can look the details up and provide you a better solution. or if you wish you may ask other experts for help.

Thanks,
Ekse

I have a mitsubishi HD1080 series TV and wanted to know how do I plug in a dvd player. Then how do I get it to play.


Connect an HDMI cable from the DVD's HDMI port to an unused HDMI port on the TV. Select the input from the settings menu and name it DVD or select the DVD name. Turn the DVD player ON. Using the input select button on the remote, select the HDMI DVD input. Wait a few seconds while the TV and DVD player establish a connection. The DVD player menu should appear. Insert a DVD and enjoy a movie. Hope this helps. Regards.

When i plug in hdmi cable to the wd52525 there is no hdmi imput on the device page. can't get it to work


If it is not there or grayed out you may have to try the soft reset first--set also has a hard one but only to be used as last resort.

Soft one: set on, menu,1,2,3 enter.

I have an RCA D52W20 that I connected to my PS3 with an HDMI/DVI Cable. The display is fine in 480i. However, No sound is coming from the TV.


This is normal my friend. A dvi port can't use audio even if it is using a hdmi cable. A easy fix is to connect your A/V cable into your ps3 and connect the red and white cables next to your dvi cable or connect it to your stereo. After that go into your setting, go to audio setting, click on audio output, and select A/V cable. it should work after that.

Inputing HDMI signal to a WS-55313 55 via an HDMI-DVI cable


HDMI standard is a bear, especially "Older" versions. It should be possible to input HDMI to a DVI, either DVI-I or DVI-D, input, there are however DVI analogue too, in fact we have, 3 type of them, they are, DVI-I, DVI-A & DVI-D.... Also some HDMI do not send the Audio over it, as it should, so all in all it can be a pickle. So you MUST get a converter that works with your sort of DVI. You would have to select that DVI, input, which may be under Auxillary, or External or the like, try scrolling through your AV inputs, see if you "Find" it. if so, the set will "Read" the signal and display it automatically. The Audio, however will have to be done via the AV sockets, the Red & White stereo IN, from the DVD etc. If you have any other inputs such as Component Video, Green, Red, Blue, then this is the best way... The Audio, again must be routed to the AV, the Red & White Jacks. So ensure you have those outputs on your new DVD.
I have included a couple of links below about DVI & HDMI for your convenience. http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html http://www.hdmi.org/learningcenter/faq.aspx

Screen flicker when selecting Blu-Ray player w/ HDMI-1 selected.


Something to remember is that most HDMI setups on TV's have what is called a DVI/HDMI port, I would suggest not using anything on that port that isnot converted from DVI to HDMI. I bet if you look, that HDMI 1 on yours....

I can not connect my pc to my samsung dlp


Not all TVs have video inputs to directly connect the computer output. Some computers have video cards that have separate outputs(usually S-Video) which you can use. Or you can purchase a video card that has the proper outputs.

If your computer has a DVI output, and your TV has an HDMI imput, there are cheap adapters that you can buy, as HDMI can process the DVI signal directly, just the cable is different.

If you need more assistance, we would need to know the models/outputs/inputs of both the computer and the TV.

No sir, there is not such switch in menu to change input from S video to HDMI or something. Here is one suggestion, Use 3 RCA pins cable (Audio L/R & Video) to connect both unit and check/ remember TV input and same should be selected in TV menu.
