Re: TROUBLE GETTING NEW SYSTEM HOOKED UP
Some of the T.V.s we have today have High Definition inputs and others do not. You need to determine first what t.v. you have. If you have a HDMI input or some circles with red green and blue colors you might be able to accomplish this. Then you have to determine what the hook ups are on the back of your output system (Cable or Satalite box). There are many cables that can help you. In my case, I have the Red Green and Blue connections, which can make a great picture in what we call Progressive scan, but isn't near the quality of HD. That said, currently most of the brodcast shows are in 720 progressive scan anyway, so the red green and blue connection should be just fine. I will soon upgrade my one t.v. to have the Higher Resolution inputs and then it should be a straight flat looking end on a cable called HDMI.

If the cable box needs to be set to 4, the TV will need to be set to 4 as well as the dvd player. The hookup should be cable box to dvd player to the TV for your system to work. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.
Hello, if your receiver and tv are HD you want this hooked up separately to get the best picture. If you just want it hooked up to standard definition then take the cable going from the receiver to the tv and connect it from your receiver to your DVD then connect one from your DVD to your tv.
New HD tv. Have digital cable box connected to tv., cable box connected to DVD recorder, but can't get setup menu to come up on tv screen. I had a similar problem. I have a HD tv connected to a digital cable box. I hooked up the DVD recorder with the wires it came with, but it would not play or give me the menu. However it was correctly hooked up. So the next day I connected a HDMI wire from the DVD recorder to the tv and everything works now.
you have to go to the set up menu and let the receiver know that you are inputting dvd audio to the digital in. (assigning). that way, when you switch the receiver to dvd, it will look for audio from the digital input. your receiver manual will guide you through that set-up. if that does not work, the fiber optic cable could be bad. this is more common than people would expect. another option is to just rca cables to the receiver from the ps3. there is an adapter that lets you do that. good luck mark
