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.

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.
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.
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.
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....
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
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.
