    Heck no you are not insulting my intelligence,yes I have checked and rechecked the audio cable plug in, based on the wiring pattern setup I have. I was afraid it you where going to say it is potentially in a setup. I will keep searching. Thank you for your help, if you have any other ideas I would greatly appreciate it.

I know this may be a stupid question that insults your intelligence but Are you sure you have the audio cable plugged into the proper jack that corresponds with the chosen video input. Other than that you may have to go thru all the menus and look for anything that may be shutting down the sound on that input and the DVD player menu for anything. If you don't know what it is post it here and we can aswer it for you.

I have a HDTV and would like to hookup my DVR and DVD to it in order to be able to record using my DVD player.


More specific information is required for a definitive answer.

In general, you cannot use a DVD player to make recordings. It should be connected to the HDTV using S-video & red/white audio connectors, or HDMI connector.
A DVR would be connected to the original source, Satellite, Cable or Over The Air, and then to the HDTV. That would allow it to capture the video and audio to the hard disk, and pass through any other or the same program.
You need multiple inputs to the HDTV to connect a DVR and DVD at the same time. If you want to use the HDTV tuner to capture over the air broadcasts, you need to connect audio and video out from the TV to 'inputs' on the DVR.

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.


If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

Hdtv picture freeze


I also have a Brand new Sony Bravia 52" LCD with Comcast Cable (motorola box).When switching between HD Channels sometimes the left side of the screen shows a smushed version of the new channel, and the right side is a frozen picture of the previous channel. I correct this by switching to a non HD channel and back. Cable or TV problem I wonder?

Sony 52" Bravia LCD will drop picture and sound for 1-2 seconds


the only thing that i can think of is that the cables and connections are bad but if that is not the case it may be the internal components of the tv. my guess is that the tv was dropped or jumbled around while transported and what happened was internal components were broken or just mixed up so go to the retailer and get a refund or a new tv. hope this helps

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

No Non-Hd sound


I had the exact same problem on a brand new Insignia 26 " LCD with DVD. Comcast tech was able to fix it by changing the Comcast box diagnostics. Here is what he did. Using the Comcast remote with the TV on - press power, cable, menu in that order. A comcast diagnostic srceen will appear. Select Additional HDMI options, then audio options. Change the audio options to L-PCM. Press power again to exit the diagnostics. That will fix it and you get to use the HDMI cable.

Picture issues


Greetings caesar975,

Unfortunately if you chose to view the non HD channels in wide screen format, you are going to have the top and bottom of the screen cut off. Eventually this will not be a problem when everything goes to digital. However presently non HD channels are presented in 3:2 ratio where as HD is 16:9, So your choice really is to view them with the lines on either side for now.

I do not have an answer for the white flickering lines.

To get the BEST picture out of your 1080p unit I highly recommend using HDMI cables to hook it up.

I hope some of this helps.

Sincerely,

Dorothy
