Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

My lite-on DH-20A4P DVD/CD reader just arrived w/o cables or any sort of instructions. nada. I want to be able to input a DVD into my desktop via a USB cable or some other EXTERIOR port on my desktop. ( I am presently unable to read a DVD with my Mandriva Linux and I don't know if the problem is hardware or software. I was hoping to sidestep the issue with this reader. ) I have read that an 80 wire IDE cable s/b used to hook the the DH-20A4P to my desktop. Since I see no exterior ports that could be used, I assume I need to use an interior connect. If so, what brand of reader do you recommend as I will not use an interior connection. countryhess

Can't tune in tv with dvd freeview.it states ext link problem


If you've connected the DVD to the TV via HDMI or SCART you shouldn't need to 'tune it in', just select the HDMI or SCART input. If your TV is also a Freeview device and you want to tune it to Freeview, where you have the aerial connected to the DVD recorder, you need to also connect the DVD recorder to the TV via an RF cable or aerial flylead so that the aerial signal passes through the DVD recorder. It's all in the instructions

LITE ON HD-A740GX ONLY HAVE DIGITAL SIGNAL HOW DO I TUNE IN CAN I TUNE IN


You must connect a digital TV box between your arial and your Liteon, so the arial cable goes into the digital box, and use a SCART cable from the digital box to the Liteon. Then record using the SCART input on the Liteon. Another SCART cable can be connected from the Liteon to your TV, so you can view what you have recorded.

I lost the instructions. Can you tell me what to do watch a cd or dvd?


As long as your cables are all connected, on your remote you need to change SOURCE or INPUT to change what device is sending the info to your TV. Make sure your DVD is on. The CD/DVD should auto start. If not, just push play on either the remote or the device. Then when you are done push the Input or Source button again to switch your TV back to TV Mode. Hope that helps.

How do i hook up my dvd recorder to my dvd player? where do i hook my cords to?


You need RCA cables to do this.These have red yellow and white cable ends.The yellow is for video the white is for the left speaker,red for the right speaker.Run the RCA cables from the output of you DVD player to the INPUT of your dvd recorder.Run another set of RCA cables from the output of your dvd recorder to the input of your TV.Most modern tv's have these inputs. These RCA cables can be purchased at Radio Shack or places like Walmarts.

When connecting hdmi out from my panasonic blue-ray player to the dvd input in my yamaha rx-v365 there is not audio or video,why?


There are several video and audio inputs named DVD. For video you have HDMI, component and composite. For audio you have standard analog stereo and digital coaxial spdif input.
You need to configure the receiver to use the correct inputs - that means HDMI and coax. Also you need to connect the BD player via coax spdif cable to the receiver, because rx-v365 doesn't support audio via HDMI. If BD player has only optical output, use DTV/CABL HDMI input and DTv/CABL Optical input on the receiver.

Cant hook dvd/vcr to my cable box the manual says I need a extern


The cable box IS an external tuner.  You should connect the video output (either S video, HDMI, or component video) of the cable box to the video input of the DVD.  Then connect the audio output of the cable box to the audio input of the DVD via stereo RCA cables.  If your tv monitor has multiple inputs (ie: video 1, 2, and 3...) connect the video and audio output of the DVD to your tv monitor using an alternate video input (if cable box goes into your tv thru video 1, connect the DVD to video 2).  If your cable box only has one output, or your tv has only one input, then just connect your cable box to the DVD as above, and connect the DVD to your tv.
