Connecting LG DVD recorder to cable box and HGTV digitally

I have an LG Dr787T and I am trying to connect it to a cable box and through an hdmi port to the TV all I can do is connect it analogically but that means disconnecting the hdmi cable connection resulting in terrible picture.

if I connect it digitally I get this error message: :your TV does not allow display of this program through the DVI input source please choose another input source.

I also have a Panasonic pt760 hometheatre/dvd connected

TV is toshiba Regza

please help .. I need everything to be connected

Two things come to mind: copy protection and resolution settings.
The TV may not allow copy protected material to come from your LG, or the sampling frequency may be unacceptable. On page 15 of the manual it talks about 96kHz and 48kHz frequency settings. The third thing to check is the vertical resolution using the RES button on the front panel. SDTV is 480, and HDTV is anything above that. Using the HDMI is supposed to allow upconvert to 1080i max if your set can use that resolution.

G'day, I have an LG HDD/DVD recorder (model RH298H) connected to an LG plasma screen digital TV via an HDMI cable. On the TV I have crystal clear digital television (and able to tune all the digital TV...


You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

I have a samsung dvd recorder, whats the proper way to connect for it to work, do i connect to cable box, tv


How you connect it depends on your system. You need to connect the video out of the recorder to the TV. If you want to record programs, you need to connect the cable box to the recorder's video in. (The unit doesn't have a tuner if you have the unit listed above.)

Place the IR Blaster near the set-top box IR receiver. Connect the RF cable from the wall to your set-top box and then another RF cable from the set-top box to the TV (not to the DVD recorder). Connect a composite A/V cable from the set-top box A/V (composite) out to the DVD recorder's A/V in (AV1) port. (Composite video is a three wire cable - the plugs are yellow (video) and red/white (R/L audio).)

Next you need to connect the unit to the TV. Depending on the TV, you can use an HDMI cable (best results), component video or another composite video cable (labeled AV2 AV out). If you use component video, you'll need a separate cable to carry the audio. (Component video cables have 3 RCA jacks on each end (red, blue and green). The audio cable has the red and white plugs.

You will only get a 480 (SD) signal output if you use anything other than the HDMI cable. (The progressive scan feature is not compatible with all TVs; see the manual for details.)


You can obtain the manual from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_mdl_name=DVD-VR375 .

I hope this helps.

(you have an additional A/V IN connection as well as a DV In port on the front of the unit)

Will not play movie - continually displays "Copyrighted Movie HDMI HDCP frail with TV "


There are several reasons for this but exactly knowing which is one isn't possible without first knowing what products you are using such as your connector, player and television.
HDCP is the acronym for high definition content protection. It is a digital signature embedded into the disc software designed to prevent copying of the disc. On certain occasions due to the hardware such as the HDMI port on the television, or the connection type, the signal will not be allowed to pass through. The HDMI port on the television may not be HDCP compliant for example. In this case if possible you can try a different HDMI input on the TV if available or use the component video input instead.

Can't pick up signal on the other room for my dstv


chances are your problems lie with your connections themselves, most cases its with the splitter box if you are using one, if u are then rather remove the splitter box altogether, u will then need a set of RCA cables (the red white and yellow cables that come with DVD players) use these to connect the first point directly from the decoder to the TV using a free AV input behind the TV. form then on proceed to connect the cable going to the room directly to the RF OUT port behind the decoder (make sure the copper and aluminium wires dont end up touching, but use both, the copper on the inside and the alu on the steel outer casing) if this doesnt work check your connections and if all fails replace the cable as a last resort

How to connect motorola cable box to samsung dvd/vcr model vr375 to a Westinghouse hdtv with 2 hdmi connections


The DVD-VR375 does not have an HDMI input. The connection should be:
• RED WHITE & YELLOW CABLE from your cable box (AV OUT) should connect to the DVD-VR375 (AV IN 1). Set the DVD-VR375 to AV 1 using the INPUT SEL. button.
• Next, connect an HDMI cable from the DVD-VR375 (HDMI OUT) to the TV (HDMI IN). Set the TV to the proper source.
This connection would allow the recorder to work as a pass through and will let you record TV programs as well as watch your cable channels.

Hope this helps!

Hookup wrong? I can't get the menu to come up for the VR375


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.

Connection several HGTV cables


hgtv is for Home and Garden TV...

Do you mean HDMI? The end connector looks similar to a USB cable. It is a little wider and close to USB in height.

If you mean HDMI, then you can get a mechanical switch box from MCMELECTRONICS.COM but if you mean hgtv, I don't have a clue.

There is also the DVI connector, not used to much any more, that is used for HD tv signals. It is larger and more rectangular, and you can see all the pins and receptacles.

How to eliminate error screen:"your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. please chose another tv input source."


"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"

Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

A/V Signal Outout through Onkyo TX-SR705


Are you trying to record cable programming with your DVD recorder? If so, you might want to try using component cable as HDMI does have a copy protection circuit that might be preventing your recorder from receiving the image. Just try to connect the cable box component (RED/GREEN/BLUE) cable to your DVD recorder. If that doesn't work, then try to change everything over to component cables. HDMI is a great cable to use but it the only required to display 1080p images and the only current source that uses 1080p is a bluray player. Everything else, such as your cable box and DVD recorder is 1080i and component cables are perfect for it.
