Need help hooking up TV, BluRay, Home Theatre & cable box

I've got a PanasonicTH50PZ80U TV, Panasonic SC-PT753 Home Theatre, DMP-BD35 BluRay, and EXPLORER 4250HDC Cable Box. I've got all the Panasonic components hooked up via VIERA Link so they're all on 1 remote. However, I got the cable box AFTER everything else was hooked up and now I've got the HD box hooked to the TV via coaxial cable.

I want to hook the HD box to the TV via HDMI, but the BluRay & Home Theatre are already using the HDMI ports. How can I hook the HD box to the TV via HDMI, and not lose any of the Viera link/1 remote functionality and not use the 3rd HDMI port in the front of the TV?

Any suggestions are GREATLY appreciated.

I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.

So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:

  1. HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
  2. Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
  3. BluRay Player to TV: HDMI cable
I hope this helps someone else.

CAN THE panasonic dmp bd35 PLAY 3D BLU-RAY DISKS


I understand the DMP BD35 is a normal blue ray disk player and not a 3D. Please see this manual if you want to be doubly sure.
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMPBD35-MUL.PDF

However something like a DMP BDT360 will play 3D blue ray discs and you can view it on a 3D ready TV.

How can i connect the system to a new sony bluray


use your tv as a common connection in your theatre system. Connect your hdmi blue ray player to the tv,connect the audio output of your tv (rca style cables -red&white) or if your tv and audio system has optical you can use that also.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Do not know how to connect the tv, theatre system to the cable box.


have you got the cable box video out (yellow RCA) connected to the video input on the panasonic? What kind of tv is it? Is the tv displaying the input that the panasonic is connected to? If "progressive" is selected, it will not display on a standard definition tv. Does it matter which mode the panasonic is in (CD/DVD)? I guess I'm just asking for more info ;-)
