Dvi is just video. hdmi has both video and audio. dvi is still used because it is a standard for computers.

connect the audio from the audio rca jack to your TV / speakers. If you have surround sound you should use the SPDIF optical audio port - it'll be cleaner and support all channels.

Remember audio has to go to an amplifier or all-in-one box, which goes to your speakers. If your speakers are built into your tv you should be able to plug it in directly and then select the audio channel on your TV. If you plug it in and you still don't hear anything it's a problem with selecting the correct audio input on your TV / amplifier

We just purchased the 500 series Samsung LCD HDTV. We have dish satellite. How do we hook it up. We are unfamiliar with the different types via HDMI, DVI, Component Cables. Your help would be...


first things first. is your satellite box HD compatible? if so, there will be a HDMI output on the back. if not, there will either be your typical red yellow red jacks, or possibly blue green red component cables. if HDMI is available, it is the optimal choice. if not, you can still use this box but will not be able to utilize your tv's HD functions. if you are not running any additional home theater accessories, that is all you need to get your dish up and running. to clarify, if you can use HDMI, you sound and video all run through the one cable. If your satellite box is not HD, i highly recommend upgrading to one.

No sound when hooking up DVi to HDMI...


This is normal, when you go from HDMI to DVI, the sound does not get transmitted. You need a separate cable to go from audio output on the computer to Audio input to the TV. There are speaker (headphone on laptop) jack to RCA audio cables, you could also go with digital audio or even optical out if your computer and TV both have the input and outputs.

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?


NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.

Is there a way to hook up a HDMI connector to my WS-48413


Yes, there are several ways to hook up your HDMI to your TV but first, we need to understand that HDMI carries both audio and video signals though a single cable in digital form.

I am assuming you want to connect a device such as a digital cable box, Blu Ray or HD DVD player with an HDMI output to your TV. Since your TV has both digital (DVI) and analog (S-Video, component, etc) inputs, my suggestion would be to get and HDMI to DVI adapter (about $20 at buy.com) for your video and for your audio, use any RCA audio cable (I use the one from the Dollar Store). This would give you the best video resolution from your source device.

My next suggested solution would be to get an HDMI to component video + audio cable (< $10 at eBay for a 6' length) for a single-cable fix. Again component video carries analog signals so the DVI could be a better viewing experience but because the cost of the cables are minimal, I would try both solutions to see which fix would give you the better picture.

Note that since the audio is being run though RCA connectors in both instances, the digital Dolby, 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound tracks in high definition sources will not be reproduced if you connect your TV's audio-out to your audio receiver. To get the best audio, I would connect the HDMI device's digital out (optical, coaxial, etc) directly to the receiver.

Hope that helps. Have fun!

I just hooked up a Time Warner Cable 4250HD Box via HDMI to DVI cable to a 50 inch Sony Grand Wega. The problem is on some channels the bottom of the screen (like a news crawl) gets cut off. This happens...


You need to make sure that the settings on your TV for the DVI connection are set properly. It sounds as if it is set to stretch or zoom. The reason the HD channels look great is that they dont zoom because the resolution fills up the entire screen without stretching.

I know you want to use your HDMI cables, but since you are going HDMI to DVI you are removing the benefit of the single cable since you still have to use audio cables. You are not going to get any appreciable difference between the setup yo uare using and the component (red, green, blue) cable.

If I have helped you, please rate me as such. It allows me to help others. Thank you.

Hooking up from hd receiver to hdtv ready projection tv. what cables do I use? vga or rca component red, blue, green and sync white/black? My hd receiver has output of :hdmi, rca component, s-video ,...


This particular television puts you in a tough bind - you can use Component cables in AV-1, but you won't be able to get HD. Or you can use the Component cables in the right-most component slot (AV-4), but since your HD Receiver probably doesn't have V/H Sync connectors, you may get a rolling picture. Try the component cables in the right-most slot - if the picture doesn't roll, you're in business.

Once again, I doubt that your model # is a 60pp9202, since that model doesn't have a VGA or DVI slot. If the picture rolls after trying the above, you will need to purchase a HDMI-to-DVI-D cable and hook it up from the HDMI output of your HD receiver to the DVI slot (that looks like a VGA slot) on the back of your Philips or Magnavox.

Hd hook up for rca 52"dlp


If you have Direct TV HD the best way is to use a HDMI to DVI cable. If you only have the component (red/green/blue)connectors on the Direct TV Box that would be the best way. You will not have audio using the DVI cable, so you will have to run Red/White cable to the Audio Input.
