HD Video Recorder - CEC connection with HDTV

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.

Sincerely,
Fort Worth Texan

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

How to connect Sky digibox & DVD recorder to Samsung UE46ES6300 TV


Buy 2 hdmi leads and use one to connect sky TV decoder to the hdmi 1 socket on the back of the TV and if your DVd recorder has an hdmi socket attach it to hdmi 2 or leave it on the scart socket
as you don't name your dvd recorder the connections available are unknown
hdmi is the best followed by component which requires a 3 cable lead 3 video (video is red green blue plugs ) audio is red and white which is a 2 wire lead which all are needed to get video and audio to your TV
scart is the lowest quality along with composite video

Hello rpgscope,
I am assuming both your dvd recorder and cable is plugged into your tv? Conncet a composite cable (rca cable or aka red, white, and yellow cable) from cable box OUT to dvd recorder IN. That should fix the problem. I mention composite cable but if you another slot for av then go ahead and use that. Make sure you have AV connected from dvd recorder OUT to the tv IN. Also the cable box should be HDMI OUT to tv IN. If you have it connected like this, it should work. Hope this helps.

Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.

I would suggest to leave your directtv hd/dvr box connected the way It is.
The HD Colorstream 1input on your TV should work just fine.
This TV does not have an HDMI input but you can buy an adapter and connect to DVI/HDCP IN and that might be able to get 1080i video resolution on your TV.

How do I connect to Sharp HDTV and Comcast cable


Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps

A/V Signal Outout through Onkyo TX-SR705


Are you trying to record cable programming with your DVD recorder? If so, you might want to try using component cable as HDMI does have a copy protection circuit that might be preventing your recorder from receiving the image. Just try to connect the cable box component (RED/GREEN/BLUE) cable to your DVD recorder. If that doesn't work, then try to change everything over to component cables. HDMI is a great cable to use but it the only required to display 1080p images and the only current source that uses 1080p is a bluray player. Everything else, such as your cable box and DVD recorder is 1080i and component cables are perfect for it.

The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.

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.
