How to hook up a blu ray player to a t.v. without HDMI slot

I have a Hitachi 65S500 t.v. and just upgraded to a directv HD-DVR when the technician went to hook up the receiver to my t.v. he said that my t.v. did not have a HDMI hook up on it so he hooked up the receiver useing component cables my question is how do I hook up a sony blu ray machine without a HDMI cable I already have the component cables hooked to my t.v. for the HD-DVR can I use more component cables or do they have to be hook to the same inputs that the DVR is hooked to in that case am I out of luck and can't hook up a blu ray I checked my manuals and see that my t.v. does have a DVI-HDTV hook up can this be used instead

SOURCE: I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system,

LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

      Check the back of your Sharp TV for the HDMI input. These will be long, thin rectangular jacks labeled "HDMI." Most Sharp TVs will include another label on those jacks with an input number ("Input 5," "Input 6" or the like). Remember that number. It will have a bearing when you turn on the TV.

    • 2
      Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the input jack on the Sharp TV and the other end to a compatible component such as an HD DVR from your cable/satellite company or a Blu-Ray disc player. The TV won't broadcast in HD if you can't connect these devices with an HDMI cable (though it will still broadcast in standard definition using RCA cables or S-video cables).

      Turn on the TV and the requisite component (Blu-Ray, DVR).

    • 4
      Press the "Input" button on your remote. A list of signal sources will appear on your screen ("Input 1," Input 2," etc.). Use the cursor to maneuver down to the input number corresponding to the HDMI outlet you just hooked up and press the "Input" button again.

    • 5
      Press the "Menu" button and maneuver the cursor to select "Option." Go to "HDMI Setup" and press "Enter." Move the cursor up or down to the desired item and hit "Enter" again. Then move the cursor from side-to-side to select the proper setting. Hit "Enable" to allow the Sharp TV to automatically recognize the HDMI signal and "Digital" to get the proper audio signal from the HDMI cable. Then hit "Enter" again.

      Exit the menu and watch TV as normal.

Samsung HT-E5400 changes/cycles through sources by itself.


FW Update 001016 will fix your issue on the E5400. Try going to the settings menu and under support check system update. If you can make through the menus it before it cuts you off you should be fine and this will NOT reset your player
Alternatively you must reset the player (I know...) by holding the STOP button on the touch panel for 20 seconds until the screen goes black and it will hard reset. This will take you through the initial setup where you can upgrade free of distraction.
This will not technically FIX the problem of the ghost pushing buttons, but it will at least leave you alone while it plays from your laptop.

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV


the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

HI Guys. I just upgraded to DirecTV HD-DVR ( I have aHR24-200) installed which is connected via HDMI to my Samsung HD TV. I have a Samsung HT-C550 Digital Home Theater System which is now directly...


You're correct and that is exactly how I always recommend setup (contrary to what the manuals tell you). It makes no sense to me to run any signal through any electronics or interconnections that neither use it nor improve it. Hence, I have NO SOURCE VIDEO going to or through my receiver and NO high end audio going to my TV (which could just as well be a monitor with NO audio capabilities, right)?

Audio electronics should receive the BEST digital audio directly from it's root source.
The TV should receive the BEST video directly from ITS root source.

THAT is why most all high end A/V gear has separate audio and video in/outputs.

If that means you have to make some switching choices when using different sources, oh well. At least you won't have experience potential degradation from multiple hops or have to troubleshoot problems that could be anywhere in that chain.

You have several ways to do this. You can hdmi cables from the two units and plug them into your tv if it supports hdmi and run the audio out portion on the back of the tv and hook that into one of the audion inputs on the surround unit. Or you run audio directly out of the bluray using rca, digital coax, or digital optical cable. Turn the surround reciever to the corresponding input that you choose to use.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.
