Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.
Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.
If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.
To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.
Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.
Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.
hi there, you did not mention what you are actually watching on the bluray player, i.e is it 720p or 1080p ?. Also, how do you know it is actually 1080p from your cable box ?. And what is the model number of your TV ?.
1. Connect cable to cable HD DVR box, connect video out of cable box to Sony receiver TV video in, connect audio L and R out of cable box to Sony receiver TV audio in and connect TV out of receiver to video in of Panasonic projector
2. Connect Audio and Video out of DVD player respectively to DVD in of receiver. Good Luck :)
If you have red, white and yellow on each match those and use a cable with 3 strands - red, yellow and white ends with RCA jacks. Use the setup key to get an onscreen display to set options. Make sure they are the video/audio OUT on the DVD not in.
On your TV it's probably Video 1 or something like that - you can usually test this by putting the cables into the front of the TV. The TV remote might have some key like TV/Video to get to the Video input screen. Make sure you check the video-in ports on the TV - not the video/audio-out.
Option if red is missing
If the DVD player just has yellow and white then just connect yellow and white (it will be mono) on the TV.
It shouldn't matter if the holes are vertical or horizontal.
If both TV and DVD have S-video ports then connect those - they will give you better video than the yellow.
You will still need to connect red and white sound cables.
connect the RF lead from the wall to your cable box then out from that to your dvd then out from your dvd to your tv. now connect a scart lead from the cable box to AV 2 on the DVD then connect AV 1 on the DVD to your TV if you have a second scart on your tv connect that to the cable box. NOW on the DVD select AV2 now whatever is on the cable box will be recorded onto DVD/VCR. Put the DVD recorder into VCR mode and set it to auto tune all the Digital Video Broadcasts. You cannot physically tune the cable boxes own channels into the DVD via RF it has to be via a scart.
You will have to connect your DVD player to the plasma TV, not the cable box. The cable box (or most cable boxes) have video outputs only. The same is true for the DVD player: it outputs the video to the tv.
Look in your DVD manual for scenarios for connecting your player to the tv.
If you are using an analogue signal then check things like DECT phones, Wifi / DSL modems, power cables, power convertors / UPS, washing machines, dryers, microwaves etc are kept as far away from the cables as possible.
Have you bought anything new recently, when it happens think what things are turned on... is it the garage door being opened etc.
If you are using a digital signal (and ideally something like a DVD player or a games console rather than a cable TV box) then check the HDMI cable. If all appears well then it could well be a fault with the television, especially if you get interference from multiple source (i.e. cable TV, DVD player, console etc)
