Question about Samsung DVD-1080P8/XEU DVD Player

1 Answer

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.

I connected my dvd player to my coby hd tv, and the movie still want play, maybe I have it on the wrong chanel. What chanel should the hd tv be on?


Are you using a HDMI cable? Push the SOURCE button & select the corresponding HDMI input with the HDMI input from your DVD player. The HDMI inputs on the tv should be numbered & you can then select the correct number HDMI on the source screen. Good luck.

When i hook up my ps3 to an emerson 19 in tv with an hdmi cable it says format not supported


Hi,
LCD Emerson only support screen with a 1440 x 900 720p resolution.
And PS3 has support 1080p or full HD.
You must arrange output HDMI resolution to 1440 x 900 or to 720p.
thanks.

LC-26DA5U 26 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television: i connect a hdmi cable 2 my hd cable box - the pic...


The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.

Dvd is grainy picture


You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!

Sony str-dg820. having a problem getting video on tv


Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

How do I get HDMI off of my RCA surround system/DVD player? I have it all hooked up right but I don't have a picture and the DVD player is set up for HD but I don't have HD TV.


you have to select the correct input on your TV and surround system. for example select HDMI 1 or two on the TV and DVD or what ever input you have it connected to on the surround system.

Read the instruction manuals for more information.

Good luck!
