Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Which component cables to use

Due to a problem with my HDMI connection I will be connecting my Sony LCD tv to my hi-def cable box using component cables. I have a good quality set of video cables marked cr,cb, and y. The terminals on both the cable box and the tv are identified as pr,pb, and y.
If I make the connection using my cables will the picture quality be as good as with pr,pb,y cables? My cable company broadcasts some programming in 1080i and I want to be sure to use cables that will allow me to receive that format.
If I'm better off springing for new cables I will, but if it makes no difference I would just as soon save the money.

What cables do I need to connect my toshiba satellite m55 laptop to my hi def tv?


This really depends on the connectsionon your hi def TV. The laptop doesn't have an HDMI port (these ports carry sound and video in one cable), but it does have a VGA out port as well as a s-video out.

You can connect an s-video cable from your laptop to your hi-def TV, if the TV has an s-video input port.

You can also purchase a VGA to Component converter if your hi-def TV has component inputs, these are the Red, Green, Blue inputs. Amazon sells these, here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Premium-VGA-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B000RJLSZU

If you have a DVI input you can purchase a VGA to DVI converter as well. These are very inexpensive and you can find a wide selection on Amazon, here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=vga+to+dvi

Finally, you can also purchase a VGA to HDMI converter. This would be the most expensive option, but you can use this box to put both sound and video from the laptop onto the HDMI cable. YOu would need both the converter and cable for this to work. Converter is here: http://www.amazon.com/VGA-Audio-HDMI-Converter-Adapter/dp/B0015YWV1G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263068538&sr=1-3

I just purchased a Sherwood RD 6513 reciever, I'm trying to connect a hd cable box (motorola dch 3200), dvd player (sony dvp ns710h) and a rca hd tv (l32hd41). I connected hdmi cords from both components...


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you. I f you are going to hook up your cable box - motorola to the sherwood receiver, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the motorola cable box, there is only 1 hdmi output there, then connect the other end to the sherwood receiver on the hdmi input, then connect another hdmi cable to the hdmi output and the other end goes to your rca hd tv.

for the sony dvp, you have only one hdmi out, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the sony dvp if u have another spare. connect it to the hdmi input of the sherwood receiver. there is only 1 hdmi output at the sherwood, so u need to use a component cable to be connected at the back of the sherwood receiver component output then the other end goes to the component input of the hd tv.

if you dont have anymore hdmi cable to hook up your sony dvp, u can use component cable, the connection will goes like this, connect a component cable on the output of the sony dvp and the other end goes to the sherwood component input then connect another component cable to the component output of the sherwood and the other end goes to the rca hd tv on the component input.

I hope this will solve your concern, if you have any question, u can get in touch..

  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

NON- Hi Def channels loose thier blue? color....picture is all green


Some CATV hi-def receivers are known to have issues keeping up with the datastream. Symptoms from the picture going solid black to other unpredictable video have been seen. Ask your CATV provider if they can switch your brand to another manufacturer. If your cable box has component video jacks in addition to HDMI, try that too. Some boxes will output RGB perfectly but bomb out with HDMI.

Hi.

Your friend is wrong you will get same resolution of 1080i whether you use component or Hdmi.
But you will need a high def input to tv in order to get this resolution EG high def cable box or satellite.
