I've correctly hooked up my dvd player to a couple of tv sets now and for some reason, although i have each the dvd player and the television volume up to full blast there is a loud hum and little volume output from the dvd player. When I touch the tips of the A/V cords it produces a sound through the television and have tried other cords so I know it is the dvd player that is the problem. Please help if you can.

Re: Very Very Low volume.
The line out jack isn't amplified. Try using the headphone jack. You can control the volume using the controls on the dvd. Whatever source you are plugging it into doesn't have an amp powerful enough to boost the audio.

If you have HD TV it is best to hook up the DVD player separately.
The easiest way to connect this is to find the cable going from the receiver to the TV and disconnect it from the TV. Connect this cable to the back of the DVD player where it says "in" or "input". Next take another cable and connect it from the DVD player output to the TV. Make sure your TV set is tuned to the correct channel and input and you're all set.

Your DVD/VCR player does not have a volume but your TV will control the volume for it. If you do not hear any thing is because you did not hook up the TV right.

The volume control on the TV does not affect the recording. However, if you were recording from a set top box, and you turned the volume down on the box and not the TV, then this would cause the problem you describe.
If this is the case, then try to keep the STB volume at maximum and only use the TV volume control.
Also, some DVD players and VCRs have a lower output than the standard TV tuner, so an increase in volume is usually needed.
You might want to try some test recordings to see what happens.
