Dear rayoneill,
I just got an HT-X810 and hooked it up to my TV and had the same problem. I suggest that you ensure that you've selected the proper device input on your TV. My TV has a couple HDMI ports, in addition to a host of other connection choices, and I found that I was selecting the wrong HDMI input for viewing a dvd. Alternatively, when I was looking for an HDMI cable to hook up my unit I came across many chats/discussions/reviews that noted the properties of HDMI cables. The consensus among the discussants was that an HDMI cable either works or it doesn't - meaning that if there is a problem with the cable, you don't get a degraded image and sound you get nothing. Things that may lead to this include a loose connection or perhaps, and there was some disagreement among commentators on this, a poorly manufactured HDMI cable. Many claimed that due to the nature of digital signal transmissions, all HDMI cables are created equal so quality doesn't matter. However, when I was reading product reviews for cables available on amazon.com, many people were very critical of the cheap cables' performance. At the same time, most everyone seemed to agree that expensive 'Monster' cables were a waste of money. I settled on a $10 HDMI cable and haven't had any problems.
Good Luck, Justin

How do I connect to tv there is nothing on the screen from the DVDs player


It depends on your connections for one thing. I did find this piece of information on the DVD player:
"One thing they do not state (in the manual) is that if you are playing it through your Scart socket to your TV. Your TV's Scart socket must be PAL60 compliant".

If they both have HDMI sockets I would get a HDMI cable and connect via that. You will also get a better picture than a scart.

If you are using a scart the connector can also become faulty either inside or a faulty pin so check that too.

I put a regular dvd into my blu ray player but it will not play. the player just says load and when I push the play button nothing happens. I'm using an hdmi cable and my 42 i.nch widesreen sharp tv is set...


Assuming it will play regular DVD's I'd suggest you connect it by scart also and set your TV input to scart.

I don't think DVD's carry High Def. data, that being the case, your player may auto route the data via scart.

No hdmi funktion to my new LED TV.


Most likely the output from the Pioneer is not compatible with the TV.
Try resetting the output by holding Stop (on the pioneers front) and press the Open/close button. This will reset the output signal. Also, if the harddrive in the Pioneer is defect, the HDMI signal will not output.

Watching digital tv using a Panasonic DMR-EZ47VEB


PLEASE NOTE THIS INFORMATION COVERS PROBLEMS FOR ALL DEVICES CONNECTED UP BY STUPID scart LEADS. I HOPE IT HELPS EVERYONE.

This is a common problem, the problem is caused by the fact your device is connected to the TV via a scart lead. The way it works is this: If you press the AV button on your TV remote your TV will turn over to the first scart channel. If you actively do something on the device connected via scart in this case the dvd player, (this includes things like playing a DVD or Video, or going into a menu), the device sends a signal down pin 8 of the scart lead and turns the TV over automatically to the AV channel, BUT as soon as you come out of the menu or stop the DVD/Video the signal stops and the TV will revert back to the channel it was on.
So you have 3 choices......maybe 4...
1. press the AV button on your TV remote directly.
2. Buy yourself and HDMI lead IF your TV supports it (note: you will have to select the HDMI channel on your TV remote because the auto thing is only on scart leads).
3. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU HAVE A SPARE LEAD look up a diagram of a scart lead on Google so you can find pin 8 and cut it out with a pair of wire cutters. YOU will have to still press the AV button on your TV remote to go to the channel though,
4. Connect your TV and DVD with an aerial lead and tune channel 6 on your TV into the DVD player. ps then disconnect the scart lead.
(Go for choice number one!)
