Question about Samsung DVD-1080P8/XEU DVD Player

Problem hooking dvd-1080p8 to 22inch 720p RCA TV LCD HD .

My problem I believe is that I HAVE TO CHANGE HDMI SEL to 720p,but reading the manual tells me it only upgrades tv in 1080p,does this mean it will not upgrade the signal to this tv,which is why I purchased this particular player.

    I am not very well schooled in this field as you no doubt guessed,however hear goes again.I recently purchased the RCA 22in LCD HD tv,then I purchased the Dvd player to give me an HD signal when I played DVD'S,my cable feed is only a Digital box,I hooked them up with a HDMI cable,however when I tried it the TV tells me the signal is wrong,after reading the manual I concluded I had to change the HDMI SEL button to 720p to make it work,however I haven't got to that yet because reading the manual tells me it only upgrades to 1080p which the TV doesn't have.I purchased the unit to give me a HD signal from my disks,my first take is this isn't going to work,can you help me answer this problem

    I am not sure what this is ,but I still have the question will this DVD player work with a RCA LCD HD 22inch TV I see in the manual that the dvd player upgrades the signal in 1080p,the set is only 720p,does this mean I won't get a good HD signal or worse it won't work.

I changed the output on the Dvd player to720p and that seemed to cure the signal problem,that is what the TV is,so that makes sense,I had already assumed that would do the trick.However,as I said yesterday,the manual states it only upgrades the signal in 1080p,I went by the deacription on the box which said it was compatible with all 3 signals.So after all of that I am not sure if it is going to upgrade the signal to 720p,if you have the answer I would appreciate knowing,I can certainly live with this .but it would be nice to know.

How do I get the correctly connect from the DVD player to the TV set?


It depends on your TV's available inputs. If your TV has an HDMI port, you'll get the audio and HD video to your set with one cable if you invest in an HDMI cable; purchase the cable online (you don't need to pay $$$$ for the cable). Stores that specialize in cables will have the best picture. Press the HDMI select button on your remote to go through the resolution options for the DVD player. (see page 14 of the manual
If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port, check for component video. This will also give an HD picture to the TV. You'll need cables for the 2 RCA audio and 3 RCA (Red, blue, green) video plugs (or one cable with 5 RCA plugs) on each end of the cable. The mega-cables though can be a bit more difficult to plug in. Make sure that the colors match. (Some TVs use an adapter that consolidate the cable connection at the TV. You still need to match the colors at the adapter.)

If your TV only has composite in, you'll have an SD signal at the TV. This is the cable with one RCA plug (yellow) for video and the 2 RCA plugs (red and white) for audio. This cable is often included with the DVD player.
If your TV only has a coax connection (OTA tuner or analog cable), you'll need a Composite to RF converter. These used to be available at Radio Shack and can still be found online as well.
If some countries, the TV might have a SCART port. You can find a composite to SCART adapter.
The manual is available from Toshiba here: http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=2805086 . Select the Manuals and Specs tab. The file is a PDF; so you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the file.

I hope this helps. If you need additional assistance, please add a comment with details of your TV.

(if your TV has an SD (480i) resolution, you probably only have the composite and coax inputs.)

How to hook up to hd tv


Use the highest resolution connection your HD TV will allow. This will usually DR570's HDMI connector. Most all digital video devices have one or more. The DR570 has an HDMI OUT. Connect it to any HDMI IN connector on your TV. You will then need to set the TV's Input selection to the Input Number you connected the DR570 to. See your TV Remote or Manual.

The DR570 has three types of output connection options, in order of quality; HDMI, Component(Red/Blu/Grn RCA jacks), S-Video (circular connector), and composite (Red/Wht/Yel, where Yel is video and Red/Wht are left/right stereo audio). Red/Wht RCA Audio jack connections are required to be made on all Output types excepting HDMI.

Note, to get your Digital channels, you will need to toggle the DR570's DTV/TV button. DTV is Digital TV channels. TV is analog channels, the DR570 found on your Cable or Antenna RF input coax, after you have done the Setup/General/Channels/Scan (extended). Scan only finds analog channels. Extended Scan scans for both Analog and Digital channels found active on your Cable/Antenna RF connection.

Note also, the DR570 is not technically and HD receiver. The term High Defintion (HD) is reserved to mean 1080i or p resolution, the highest available. The DR570 is an Extended Definition (ED) 720i or p receiver. It up-converts its ED to fit an a 16:9 HD TV screen. You will hardly notice the difference on your TV, but it is the difference between watching a DVD Movie on a standard DVD player, like this one, as opposed to a full HD player like a Blue Ray.

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV


If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

I dont know how to hook up a dvd player


Depending on the model of DVD player and the TV you are trying to connect it to you have various inputs and outputs.

If your have an HD (High Definition) DVD Player and a HD TV the best input to use is HDMI. Both device would have an HDMI interface whereby you could connect them together.

If you have a standard DVD Player you have usually 3 other input/output options, RCA, S-Video, and Component. Your RCA jacks are colored Red, Yellow, and White. Your S-Video is a larger circular jack with several pins. The Component cable has Red, Green, and Blue.

Of the three above the Component Cable connection is going to give you best picture quality. S-Video is second and RCA is third. You just need to match up the connectors on your TV and DVD and get the cable that accommodates the best picture quality. Again for clarification below are the interface options for best quality to poorest:

1. HDMI
2. Component
3. S-Video
4. RCA

Hope this helps.

Connecting to lcd tv with HDMI cable


you will probably need to tell you DVD you want to use the HDMI output so it will send via HDMI. You'll have to hook it up to the original tv so you can see DVD menus when the player is in Stop mode or there is no DVD in.

No picture, but sound


I had the same problem and I managed to solve it. It was because the HDMI was set to 1080i and my TV isn't HD. Default HDMI is 480p. You can check your current HDMI setting on the front panel of your DVD. There should be a button with the words "HDMI select". Next to it there should be 3 values. If the current one (a green light shows which one is selected) is not 480p, change it. To change it, make sure your sd-5000 is on, but not reading a DVD. The press the "HDMI select" button on the front panel until the selected one is 480p. This worked for me.

(I had the same same problem without the reading slowly part. On one TV, the sound and video weren't working, and only the video wasn't working on another TV)

Hope it helps.
