Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Samsung HLP5063. Just bought a Onyko AV receiver with HMDI hook ups. Also connecting Dish 211VIP, and Samsung DVD connected to the receiver. I was able to get the DVD player to work, but no surround sound, only front speakers working. Now, somehow I got the TV stuck on TV source. Can't get back into HMDI! I've tried the controls on the side of the TV, and my Harmony remote, but neither will work! Inever have been able to get the satallite to work through the HDMI connection. TV connected to AVreceiver through HDMI out CAB/SAT - HDMI3, DVD - HDMI1. I've tried different hook ups to see what might work but to no avail!

    My Onyko is model TX-SR606. I gave up on the HDMI and used coxials instead, everything working great now. I had The TV on HDMI and followed the set up instructions in the manual but never could get the satellite picture or sound. I had the TV HDMI plug into the HDMI out on the receiver, like it said to do in the instructions. Did the speaker set up, had great sound with radio and iPod. Just no go with TV and Satellite. I tried every configuration of HDMI on my TV also, ie,, HDMI - AV receiver, satellite, combo, and left it blank. Oh well, like I said coax hook up is working.

    Yes, I had the HDMI out on the receiver going to the TV in. HDMI out on Satallite to HDMI3 (cbl/sat) in on receiver, and set up done naming HDMI3 for the cabl/sat.

    Oh, by the way, I also tried connecting the satellite directly to the TV and never got sound or picture. So it's possible that the satellite HDMI out is not working properly on the Satellite box.

    Satellite receiver is a Dish VIP211.

Have you gone through your onkyo receivers setup manual. You will most likely need to adjust the settings on your Onkyo receiver. I also have an onkyo reciever and I have to assign the inputs to the video source. Being that you got sound out of the front speakes. I am assuming when you were playing out of the dvd player your reciever was only on stereo sound. Once I get feedback I can assist you further

    What is the model of your onkyo reciever?

    So did you HDMI out from your satellite to the HDMI in on the reciever. Then HDMI out on the reciever to the HDMI in on the TV? Once I have more information I am certain we should be able to get HDMI working. Though I am glad to hear you have something to go on for now.
    P.31 refers to HDMI connections.

    That definitely sounds like a possibility. I am wondering if there is some option you have to turn on. If you want to give me the model of your satellite receiver I can look into it further for you. If you have a moment please take a second to accept and rate my solution accordingly.

How do I hook up my satilite dish to our motor home?

Most TVs don't have a built-in satellite receiver. You'll need to buy and install a suitable satellite receiver box for the signals that your dish is capable of receiving. The dish connects to the satellite receiver. Then the sat receiver connects to the TV via either AV cables or HDMI. Hope this helps.

My Element TV is hooked up to the Dish Network. I have a dvd hooked up to the TV also. What do I have to do to watch the dvd on the tv


To watch a DVD your player needs to be connected to the TV using a scart or RCA connectors (red, yellow and white) depending on the type of connections available to you. The easiest way to connect the DVD player to a television is via Audio/Video connections that are usually supplied with it.
Next plug in your DVD player and power it up.

Next use your remote to select AV 1, 2 or 3 or HDMI - depending on the input you used at the back of your TV. Insert DVD and play! For example, if the DVD player is connected to the SCART socket labeled Av1, then you need to select Av1 with the remote.

The use of your DVD player is not dependant on the dish receiver - it works on a serarate input direct to the TV. Connecting your DVD player in this manner direct to your TV will not affect your cable or antenna connection to your television.

How do i install a dvd player with dish network

Hello, if your receiver and tv are HD you want this hooked up separately to get the best picture. If you just want it hooked up to standard definition then take the cable going from the receiver to the tv and connect it from your receiver to your DVD then connect one from your DVD to your tv.

No TV signal

If it's hooked to Dish network, you have a receiver to connect to the TV. If you're using the receiver's RF output on channel 3 or 4 to the TV's antenna jack, you need to have the receiver on while the TV is scanning or it won't add the receiver's output channel. You can rescan channels after you turn the receiver on. If the TV has AV input jacks and you're connecting the receiver that way, you need to switch the TV to the AV input. That may be difficult or even impossible without the TV remote.

I just had directv hooked up, I have a dvr receiver, I was told I did not have enough hook ups on the back of my tv, so therefore, I went and bought a switch or combiner. Now, how do I need to run the...

Newer directv hd receivers must connect to the av input (yellow,red, white) connections on the back/front/side of your tv. If your tv only has one of these av inputs then you will need an RF modulator for your dvd player. You will connect the (yellow,red, white) connections from the dvd player to the rf modulator and then connect the tv out on the rf modulator to the tv rf jack ( the silver threaded barrel on the back of the tv) Tune your tv to channel 3 to watch a dvd and then back to the av input channel for the directv receiver.

Connecting an a/v receiver to a Dish network receiver

DO you have manuals for all the units listed?
If not , try the Samsung consumer site.
It would take me quite a while to figure out your situation even with manuals and I have a business to run besides.

Also, ask some questions of Tech Support at Samsung..Let them KNOW how much you spent on their stuff.

God bless,

How to record ?

I don't know a whole lot about electronic equipment, but I've never seen anything connected in so many ways at the same time. Maybe the antenna and one other type of connection. The different signals from all the connections are probably confusing each other. I would try one connection at a time to see if the problem improves. Good Luck.
