Question about Televison & Video
I thought this would be easy.... I plugged in my HDMI cable from my HD video recorder into my Toshiba HDTV with Regza (whatever that is - apparently controls the the video recorder from the TV????) in the hopes that I would select the appropriate HDMI # like 1, 2 or 3 and the push play on my Panasonic HD video recorder. But no! When I push play on the video recorder, nothing happens. So finally I broke out the Toshiba HDTV manual and it said something about CEC. I can't view my HD video recorder on the HDTV apparently b/c of CEC.
Any thoughts? Thanks.

My first question would be, Is your Panasonic HD recorder CEC compliant? CEC means Consumer Electronics Control. That simply allows for the consumer to have better control over their Home Theater set up through the connection of you HDMI cable from their remote control without programing the remote control for every single device that is connected. If your recorder is CEC compliant the television should have automatically recognize the recorder and control you recorder via remote control (I am assuming that your recorder is an HD Camcorder, since your description was very vague). Once you connect your HD camcorder to your panasonic tv the tv should have turned on switching to the correct input and the same for any other CEC comliant devices. If your Panasonic HD recorder is not CEC compliant the you would have to start viewing your recorder the old fashion way, by using the recorder remote control or if your Toshiba remote is universal punch those codes in so that you can control your devices that way. If that don't work, try a different HDMI input and select the input and make sure your recorder is set to output on you tv. Hope this helps.....before I forget, check out this site to learn more about Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) http://www.videsignline.com/howto/207400325
