Question about Apex Digital GT3215 32" TV

1 Answer

Default video mode

Can this TV be set to default to Video 1 when turned on? That has my satellite set-up connected, and gets stereo and a better picture than the co-ax TV connection which is now what is selected first. As it is now, I need two remotes: Apex to select/change video, satellite to use other functions. Thanks.

How do I hook up my 55 inch led tv to a stereo for better sound

In many cases newer tv's do not have an audio out, some have a headphone jack on the side (Small usually blue)

Otherwise if you are wanting to get better sound from a DVD / Blueray / Satellite / Cable box, You can put the audio from these devices into your sound system, then plug your sound systems audio out into the tv.
The video out from your devices will need to connect directly into the tv.

If using HDMI or S-Video that carries both audio and video, slitter / separation boxes are available, but usually degrade sound and audio quality.

The above would look something like

Cable box audio out (red / white) to Stereo audio IN. >> Stereo Audio OUT to TV audio in.
Yellow (Video) Cable from cable box then goes directly to the TV Video IN. Just make sure the audio and video cables are going to the same section (Some tv's may have multiple audio / video in's

Cannot get AV Mode


There is a TV/VIDEO button on frond panel of the tv. When you press each time this button then you will able to access different video inputs. if the button is inactive the probably the micro switch for TV/VIDEO button may be faulty. also check the same with the remote. If its doesn't help then try to reset the tv to factory default setting. For that you need the remote. Keep in mind that when you reset the tv to factory default setting all the memorized parameters will erased(like channel memory, personal preference setting etc ). For reseting the tv to factory default do the following

1.Turn on the TV.
2.While holding down the RESET button on the
remote control, press the POWER button on the TV front panel.
The TV will turn itself off, then back on again. Release the
RESET button

Is OSD set to ON? See below

Set the OSD (onscreen display) mode before you start using the RI Dock. 1. Plug in the AC adapter. 2. Turn on your TV and amp, and select the appropriate inputs on your TV and amp. 3. Insert your iPod into the RI Dock. 4. Select the video output mode depending on the video connection. While pressing the remote controller's [SETUP] button, press the Up [ ] button for the component video connection, press the [ ] button for the composite (default) connection. 5. Use the remote controller's [MODE] button to set the OSD mode. On: Playlists (artists, albums, songs, and so on) are displayed on your TV, and you can navigate and select your music or video while looking at your TV. While this mode is selected, your iPod displays the Onkyo logo. Off: Nothing is displayed on your TV and you navigate and select your contents by using your iPod's display.

Audio settings. can't get pointer on the remote to go to default audio settings. Right now audio is very poor.

Sometimes bad audio can be caused by putting your tv in surround
mode. By putting television in stereo mode for this model can sometimes get better audio. There is also an issue with this model
that requires a technician to alter the service settings for audio.

When i connect my laptop to the tv i get sound but no pic.

Computers have two seperate systems - one for video and one for sound.

The only computer (or laptop) connection that carries both video and sound is HDMI. If you do not have a HDMI/DVI connector on the back of your computer, then you will have to use the VGA-composite or s-video connectors to display your PC's output on an external monitor like an LCD TV.

On both my HP and Dell laptops the display settings (Start/Control Panel/Personalize/Display Settings) allow two modes - single or dual monitor mode. Single monitor mode allows me to switch between any one of three possible video outputs - VGA-composite, S-Video or laptop screen, or a split-desktop (display spread over two seperate monitors). Dual monitor mode allows the same display on any two of three possible video outputs.

Switching is performed using the fn keys on the keyboard (fn key plus the F2, F8, etc. function key with the display marking). You guys use single monitor mode until you figure out what your are doing. Select VGA-composite or S-Video.

Non-HDMI sound to your TV monitor or sound system must be obtained from your laptop's Headphone or S/PDIF jacks. Headphone is stereo and S/PDIF is 5.1 surround sound. Headphone is electrical, but S/PDIF may be electrical or optical (laser light). You must set the sound jack that you intend to use as the default on the PC control panel (Start/Control Panel/Sound).

None of these connectors is two-way in the context of an LCD monitor - your PC cannot record a TV picture or sound from the external monitor. To accomplish this you must purchase a video converter box that converts cable TV or video+sound inputs to USB format usable by your laptop. Do this and you can turn your laptop into a Tivo recorder/DVD burner using Beyond TV, Sage TV or a variety of other software packages.

I had the same issue with my laptop after I upgraded my video driver. Check on the Toshiba website for the correct display driver for your laptop and download it. Follow their directions and install it on to your hard drive. If it is the same driver that came with your laptop originally, the default settings should allow you to connect back to your LCD TV and get the proper display. If that doesn't work you will probably have to call Toshiba support and ask them for the default settings.

Setting up mintek 100 dvd player to cable box to tv

Newer TVs have multiple inputs. Mr Mark is correct, you generally do not daisy-chain Audio/Video units unless you are using a recording device. Cable box to Cable input on TV. DVD player to other inputs.

Let's get some terminology out of the way. Specifically for the Mintek DVD-1600. There are NO inputs.

Coaxial Audio out (orange) is for digital audio only. Usually connects to stereo reciever for Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Not for TV.

S-Video (black w/4 small holes, 1 square) is for better quality video than composite. Use this to TV instead of Composite if you have a S-Video input on your TV.

Composite (Yellow) Older video input type. Works just fine. Connect to TV.

Audio Output ( Red & White) for analog stereo only. Goes to TV. Red=right, White=left channels.

Component Video Out (Blue, Green White) is the newest video output type in this unit. Better than S-Video. Use this option if available on your TV instead of S-Video or component.

No video signal

• The resolutions available for HDMI output depend on the connected TV or projector. For
details, see the user’s manual of your TV or projector.
• When the resolution is changed during playback, it may take a few seconds for a normal
image to appear.
• If you set the HDMI output resolution 720p or 1080i, HDMI output provides better picture
• If 720P or 1080i is selected, C-VIDEO, S-VIDEO and component video will not ouput video
signal. Press and hold the SUBWOOFER button on the front panel to reset the HDMI
Resolution setting.
