    Re same problem, no pic or sound from VCR part of machine to Sony 40" LCD, tho dvd and hdd fine, connected with HDMI.



    Solved the problem for us by adding a scart connector. The VCR then played back ok, and able to switch back to HDMI for better picture on dvd and hdd and TV tuner.



    In doing that tho, discovered that the TV tuner in the machine had trouble staying connected to the TV through the Scart, whether or not HDMI also attached, but this is of no importance as don't use the tuner in the machine to watch TV. Did not detract when recording to HDD. Changing the cable or slot on the TV made no difference.



    An entirely separate problem of no sound sometimes through the HDMI, was solved by turning the TV off and on. I suspect this is an HDMI problem, as threre's vague references in the manual to possible probs of this sort with some makes of TV.

    I spoke too soon thinking the above had fixed it; the picture on the VCR also was cutting out, it turned out, as it did from the machines tuner, when connected with the scart. Have therefore reported it to Toshiba as a faulty machine.

I have a samsung dvd recorder, whats the proper way to connect for it to work, do i connect to cable box, tv


How you connect it depends on your system. You need to connect the video out of the recorder to the TV. If you want to record programs, you need to connect the cable box to the recorder's video in. (The unit doesn't have a tuner if you have the unit listed above.)

Place the IR Blaster near the set-top box IR receiver. Connect the RF cable from the wall to your set-top box and then another RF cable from the set-top box to the TV (not to the DVD recorder). Connect a composite A/V cable from the set-top box A/V (composite) out to the DVD recorder's A/V in (AV1) port. (Composite video is a three wire cable - the plugs are yellow (video) and red/white (R/L audio).)

Next you need to connect the unit to the TV. Depending on the TV, you can use an HDMI cable (best results), component video or another composite video cable (labeled AV2 AV out). If you use component video, you'll need a separate cable to carry the audio. (Component video cables have 3 RCA jacks on each end (red, blue and green). The audio cable has the red and white plugs.

You will only get a 480 (SD) signal output if you use anything other than the HDMI cable. (The progressive scan feature is not compatible with all TVs; see the manual for details.)


You can obtain the manual from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_mdl_name=DVD-VR375 .

I hope this helps.

(you have an additional A/V IN connection as well as a DV In port on the front of the unit)

Split screen on DVD player


This sounds like a progressive scan issue (unit in P.Scan Mode) here is a C&P from the manual

Set "Alt Video Out"
Highlight "Alt Video Out", then press the RIGHT button to select
one of the following options:
• S-Video - Select this if you are using the S-Video OUT jack on
the rear panel to connect to a TV.
• Component - Select this if you are using the COMPONENT
VIDEO OUT jacks on the rear panel to connect to a
Progressive(480p) or Interlaced (480i) TV.
• See your TV owner's manual to determine what type of TV you
have.
- Interlace : Interlaced Scan mode will work.
- Progressive : Progressive Scan mode will work, and Video
and S-Video will not work.
• Press the Progressive button on the front panel if you have a
Progressive scan TV only. Otherwise, the picture will be
disturbed.

Compatibility with Samsung LCD Display


It sounds like the HDMI port on the back of your Marantz is damaged. if you know for sure that the HDMI port works on another tv still you might just use component connection because the visible difference between component and HDMI is not very recognizable.

SD-K530SU - Turning Off Progressive Scan Mode


Once the setting for Progressive Scan output is entered,
an image will only be visible on a Progressive Scan compatible
TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to On in
error, you must reset the unit. Pointing the remote at the
player, press the STOP (x) button to stop any disc that is
playing. Next, press the STOP (x) button again and hold it
for five seconds before releasing it. The video output will
be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once
again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
