Plug the receiver directly to the tv first without the panasonic. set up the receiver . then add the panasonic. the panasonic probably doesnt have a digital tuner so use composite av cables (yellow, red, white) from the reciever to the player

Wil my tv work with out remote


There are quite a few ways to connect cable box, DVD, receiver and TV together. At a minimum---Connections between DVD and a/v receiver: For Audio, either digital coaxial, digital optical or simple RCA (CABLE ONE); If you did not use RCA you need to connect Video with either component or s-video (CABLE TWO). For connection between a/v receiver and TV: either component, s-video or RCA (CABLE THREE) You did not mention how your cable (or sattelite) box is connected. You could use same set-up as between DVD and a/v receiver for another one or two cables depending on set-up used.connecting the speaker wires of an RCA TV to an amplifier: The signal that is fed to the speakers is not designed to be fed to the line-level inputs of your amplifier. You'd need some kind of conversion and I can't tell you exactly what that would be.

Get some double-screened satellite cable and fit a female TV plug to it (or a male plug with an adapter). Connect it to RF Output 2 at the rear of your Digibox. Fit a TV plug to the other end and plug it into your TV.

Temporarily disconnect the aerial feed from the Digibox aerial socket. Switch the Digibox on to get a picture on your main TV. The Sky Digibox normally sends its signal out on UHF channel 68 so go to the second TV and tune it to 68 (or tune it till it finds the Sky picture).

Now plug the aerial cable back into the Digibox. If there is now interference on the Sky picture on the second TV (or on the terrestrial channels) your Sky signal on 68 is causing interference. Press [services] 401 [select]* and set the RF output to a different UHF channel number. You need to connect it via a Scart lead on your main TV in order to see the menu.

*In the new EPG (April 2009) it's [services] 001 [select]

Try each RF output channel number in turn (21 - 69) and retune the second TV until you get clean pictures on the terrestrial channels and the Sky channel. Also check the picture from the VCR (if connected).

This is just a brief overview. If you need a real in-depth explanation you should read the "Piping TV Around the House" Ebook by satcure.

I just acquired a Toshiba 32HL95 TV and cannot get any hd channels although I have a digital cable box. I have tried using the coaxial, hdmi and video connections to no avail.


Try configuring your antenna input. Menu, Installation, Terrestrial, Input Config select your antenna 1 or 2 and > arrow over to select cable. Next auto program: under Terrestrial, Channel Program...this take some time.

We are trying to hook up a samsung flat screen TV, a sony home theater system, direct tv box, and a panasonic DVD to the dynex component video converter box. Which cable goes where


We can't make assumptions. Did you set it up in accordance with the manuals?

Without specific details...

In general, ins go to outs; compatible connectors need no modification.

If you have an HDTV and HD Satellite I don't think you want to be tying the video quality down to S-Video.

There are two signals to consider here. Video and Audio. TV's are expert at Video and A/V Receivers are expert at Audio, so each should get first crack at the specialty for which it is designed.

HDMI or Component Video (Red, Green and Blue RCA cables) are the best and ONLY ways you'll get Hi Def to the TV. If you route EACH HIGH DEF SOURCE'S VIDEO DIRECTLY to the TV (instead of through the receiver or a switch) the TV/monitor will receive the best video digital data.

Digital Audio from as close to the real source as possible (SAT Box, maybe) to the receiver.

Standard analog audio from the SAT box to the TV for watching lo-fi content like news and weather without the Sony HTS turned on.

I can't hear my tv through the system only if i hace a dvd or cd in. Did I not install properly. I have a panasonic viera flat screen tv. Help!!!


Provide specific model numbers, please.

Your "TV" sound probably originates from a cable box, not the TV, right? Run the box's audio to the receiver and the video to the TV. They ARE specialized for those inputs, you know.

I have a Panasonic Tx l37S10B tv set, & a PanasonicDVD recorder,DMR-EX768EB. To ensure I receive true HD i have bought a Humax Fox T2 hd Digital receiver. I use these items to receive & record HD...


Hi,

You didn't fully expain how each device is connected to the others. I don't think you have this set up correctly. Your DVD cannot record in HD so there is no point sending an HD signal to it - it can't process it. This is how I would set it up:

1. Install a 2-way splitter on the input cable
2. Connect output 1 from the splitter to the Humax receiver
3. Connect the Humax receiver to the TV with an HDMI cable
4. Connect output 2 from the splitter to the DVD
5. Connect the DVD to the TV with SCART cable.

This will enable you to watch HDTV via the digital receiver and also provide an input from source (dish/cable) to your DVD player so that you can record.

If you've already set it up this way then it should work. I suspect you've connected the Humax to the DVD and TV and also the DVD to the TV.

Please try this setup and post back if you need further assistance.

I cant receive freeveiw channels


I don't know what make of TV you have but some manufacturers have two tuners at the rear of the TV. One for terrestrial signal & one for digital signal. If this is the case put the aerial into the digital input & try retuning. If this does not work then if you could provide the details of you TV eg. make & model, then I will try to help you further.

Digital Converter Box


Hi William

You TV is able to receive Free to air Terrestrial Analog broadcasts by just connecting the antenna. However if you wish to receive Digital Terrestrial broadcasts (DVB), you need to obtain a digital receiver for Terrestrial Digital Broadcasts. It can be easily connected to your TV.
