If you are using just component cables it's as simple as plugging them into the appropriate ports on the back. One nice feature of the HT-S780 system is the multiple digital audio ports and the ability to map them as you like.

I just picked up the Samsung HW C560S receiver. I'm trying to run a cable box as well as a blue ray player through it connected by HDMI. Blue Ray seems to work fine but can not get picture from cable box....


When you run the cable box and the blue ray player to your receiver you use two sets or cords yes? there for you need to run two sets of cords to your TV from the receiver. Have you done this? Both the DVD and Cable box will have different inputs to the TV. Turn the cable box on and cycle through the inputs on the TV. One should pop up for the DVD and a different one for the cable. Let me know if this works.

How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


Things You'll Need:

* Component cables

Instructions


Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

Tips & Warnings

You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

How do I get the HD on this model? Which cables/hook up should I use? I do not have a cable box or set top box but if these are required, please let me know. Thanks!


Your unit is HDTV ready but is not an HDTV. It is capable of displaying HDTV only through the component inputs. Your tuner is analog NTSC and will not receive HDTV or digital.

You could get an HDTV picture using a Blue Ray DVD and hooking up the component connectors from the DVD to the TV.

The only other way would be to get an HDTV tuner with a component output and hook it up the same way, component out to component in, and hook the tuner input to an off air antenna (receiving HDTV) or cable or satellite with HD signals.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I had my DVDR 3355 in a box for a few months. I newly installed and I have no AV signal (Blue presentation of PHILIPS System) at the TV.


Try changing your settings on the AV menus on the TV. Also make sure the AV leads are pushed in fully (I know sounds silly but you'd be surprised!)

How to connect motorola cable box to samsung dvd/vcr model vr375 to a Westinghouse hdtv with 2 hdmi connections


The DVD-VR375 does not have an HDMI input. The connection should be:
• RED WHITE & YELLOW CABLE from your cable box (AV OUT) should connect to the DVD-VR375 (AV IN 1). Set the DVD-VR375 to AV 1 using the INPUT SEL. button.
• Next, connect an HDMI cable from the DVD-VR375 (HDMI OUT) to the TV (HDMI IN). Set the TV to the proper source.
This connection would allow the recorder to work as a pass through and will let you record TV programs as well as watch your cable channels.

Hope this helps!

Connecting and recording sony hdtv, rdr-hx780 recorder,sony dream system


I have the same system, except for the TV, I have a project (that part doesn't matter).

From your Sat. go straight to your AV receiver
Again from you Sat. (all of the AV outputs are all live), go out from either 1 or 2 and go to your recorder Line 1 in.
From you AV receiver go to your TV.

All you have to do is hit record and you will record whichever channel you are on. I am having difficulty getting it set up as a PVR, but will figure it out sooner or later.

Hope this helped.
