Connecting Sony DVD Player/Video Cassette to HD TV

I hope someone can help me as I'm afraid that I'm out of my element.
I just purchased a new Samsung Plasma HDTV and love it. The problem is getting it to work with my sony slvd380p dvd/vhs combo player. I'm really only concerned about the DVD player part at this point.
I have what I think are called composite cables (red, white, yellow) that are used to connect the dvd player to another source - in my case the tv. I receive my tv signal through a coax cable and it goes directly into the tv. I don't have a dvr or any other type of converter box at this time. Sadly, for the life of me, I can't get the right configuration for these cables. Shouldn't the dvd play by matching up the cables to the same colors on the AV input on the back of the tv? I should clarify that I can get limited play ability but everything is in black and white and the dvd player remote does not seem to be working - can't get a set up screen and none of the remote functions are working. Is there something I can purchase for better compatability or should I just get a different dvd player? Thank you for any help you can provide.

SOURCE: Samsung CXD2512 TV/VCR Combo...Cannot hook up DVD player

We also don't have a remote. We hooked a DVD/VCR combo to the Samsung combo by attaching the cable from the cable line to the DVD player and an additional cable from DVD to TV and it used to work but after we lost the control, the DVD can only be listened to but not seen. The VHS from the DVD player works perfectly though.

When we had the remote (before connecting the other combo) we used line-in to see a DVD or VHS using the yellow red and white cables from the Samsung to the other player.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Help getting sound from New Sony LCD Television Model XV HTD520 DVD Player with Surround Sound S HTD520

While I could not find it in the manual, I found that you must
go to the menu, open Sound Options and set Speakers to "Fixed".

Note: If you turn off the Surround Sound or DVD player combination you must then go back to the menu and turn the speakers back to Televsion.

I'm not saying I have an answer but you need to define the specific TV (and everything else) for anyone to answer your question with certainty.

How do we know what capabilities and connections are being considered?

Using remote to play video DVD


You need to bypass your A/V tuner for your video connections (if possible). Plug your video directly into the TV and audio into the tuner. This will also give you a cleaner signal/picture as it does not have to processed by your tuner BEFORE it goes to your tv. Think of it as cutting out the middle man. Your tuner is best left for powering your speaker and not controlling your video despite all of the available connections in the back of it.

I would also get rid of your VHS and cassette players as they are dead technology. Clean up your system and remove the clutter. This will lessen your chance of getting interference. Good luck!!

Dell w3000 & PS3


This may not be DVI issue.
I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.

Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.

Jumping Picture


Does the Sony surround upscale the signal from normal RCA to Component video? If so I have found that sometimes there can be signal sync issue. Meaning the signal that the component video convertor (inside the surround sound unit) sometimes struggles to give a clean component video signal. The TV then struggles to filter the signal correctly resulting in a jumping picture. Try plugging the DVD video only (yellow RCA lead) straight into the plasma and see what happens. You can also try playing with the signal frequency of the plasma, from 50 - 60hz. This will found in the menu of the plasma. Hope this helps. ST
