Question about NAD L55 DVD Player

Open Question

How do I use the S video input on my Samsung LCD?

I want to free up a SCART socket so I'm trying to connect my DVD via the S Video & RCA inputs. The DVD has Scart output (& an S video). I found a bargain scart to 2 RCA + S video and hooked it up (DVD scart to TV RCA & S video). But I don't get a picture or sound.
I thought the S video bit would provide the video signal? Surely I don't need the extra RCA video cable do I?

Thanks

SOURCE: NAD T753 s-video in, component video out problem

I have the same amp. You have to have the same input as you do output for video...ie: s-video in/s-video out, composite video in/composite video out. I know it sucks but thats how NAD designed it.

SOURCE: no video output caused by OSD change

Leave cables conected to tv as they are but connect L73 to TV with a scart lead, then switch TV av to the one used by the scart lead and hey presto you'll be able to change back to the progressive setting ( component cables ).
Once this is done just remve the scart leads and bobs ur uncle your back in business.

Hope this helps. Earl

How to connect a Panasonic PV-V4520 vcr to a Samsung digital tv UN32EH5300FXZA


Hello.

If your Panasonic has RCA and S-Video or even a SCART sockets then that is not necessarily old technology but still useful to view old VCR tapes. The TV is or may be the problem. As I don't have this Samsung TV model, I can only make a suggestion from past experience, as I used to be a cameraman/movie maker. Look at the rear or side of the Samsung TV. If you see RCA, S-Video or SCART outputs, aside from other outputs, such as HDMI 1 or 2 and also the laser output, but these are the least of your concern. Normally, VCR tapes are standard VHS, unless they are S-VHS, this format can only be viewed via RCA cable. If your TV has RCA INPUTs, not OUTPUTs, plug a good RCA cable, Yellow, Red, White in the INPUTs of the TV and then plug the same colours in the Panasonic OUTPUTs RCA sockets. Switch both devices on and then on the TV, press the Input button of the TV Remote and scroll the feature where it says VCR or RCA (most TV's have a picture of the 3 cables plugs) This is a bit tricky because as I said I don't have a Samsung TV so, I can only suggest what a VCR input would look like on the screen. Once you found the right input, press the OK button on the Remote and the screen should either turn black or is ready to display the video from the Panasonic. Press play on the Panasonic Remote and see if the film appears. In most cases, it's a simply straight forward operation. If the video tapes are of S-VHS, then you can still view both but if you had connected the S-Video cable instead of the RCA, you'll get a better picture quality, colour is more controlled and sharp. Alternatively, you could save all your old VHS movies, weddings, events, whatever you got there, by converting them to DVD yourself, so that the picture quality remains the same. You need a powerful computer, Windows 7 or an i5 or i7 would do better. You need a 1394 digital video capture card, also called firewire. Most older computers have it already installed, XP, Vista and early Windows 7. There are special connecting cables that are plugged at the rear of the VCR and the capture card, where one end is a firewire plug and the other can be either a stereo type plug or an RCA plugs. The choice is yours, but who doesb't want to save precious memories on DVD?

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


Hi,

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.

What cable do i need to connect philips dvp3520/05 to hd tv


The DVD player only has a SCART out and unless you have an European model TV it won't have a SCART input. So you have to buy a SCART to RCA cable and connect the RCA end to the TV's AV input ( Yellow to Video and Red/White to audio input )

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV


If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

depends on what type of input your monitor has - if there is an rca socket [usually yellow] then you can take a composite video signal from a suitable set top box [via a similar rca socket or the scart]

Some dvd players do not have the switching line fro your tv to automatically select scart input but you will be able to select via the tv remote if there are no buttons marked av it can be an oblong with an arrow pointing inwards or you may have to select via the source menu on the tv if you have your original handbook it will give a helpline number for Asda.SUPER8.
