Question about Televison & Video
I am a 100% novice when it comes to electronics, but will not hesitate to give it a go! I hve a new HDTV(Samsung) and a 6yr old Sony DVD/VHS player. TV channels show great pic! (I have not hooked up any high def devices or connections yet!) However, I hooked up my DVD player to the HDTV, using Monster component cables(all connections are accurate) grn to grn(y) blue to blue and red to red. I attempted to set my clock on the DVD )setup)and no display or pic. I was told to depress the source button on the TV to see if it picks up the DVD. I did and it gives error Component 1-weak or no signal. I just realized though. I have not hooked up the audio red/white connections..some diagrams show it used..some dont so I assumed I did not need it..guess I do, but would that keep me from having a pic on the TV from the DVD and the TV not detecting the device? I also do have an older JBL receiver I will eventually be hooking up and will be using the Component cable..NOTE- neither the DVD player nor the receiver has a HDMI connection.
Purchased a newer HDMI DVD player,(Sony)as well as found that I do need the video cables.Also found that I need to change the input to component on the DVD player by using a regular coxial to at least get a display from the DVD player had I kept the older one.
