Use optical or composite digital audio cable only from tv to receiver because with rca (red and white) you get stereo only

    I have optical digital audio cable from Panasonic vt25 tv to receiver, but no sound coming from speakers at all.
    After plugging in the digital cable, I can't get the receiver to accept that input. It will accept it from the DVD but not the TV ?????

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!


Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

I can't play movies on my tv


Okay, this monitor setup is a little strange. There is an "AVC" component with this monitor that you use to connect everything. There is a 4 cable string (power, s-video, DVI, display port) that connects the AVC unit to the monitor. You must have all external equipment connected to the AVC unit, not to the TV itself. The connections on the TV talk to the AVC unit. I will assume you will be connecting the Blu-ray player via HDMI. HDMI is on input 4 on the back of the AVC unit. hit the input button on the remote or the TV and select input 4. There is a way of customizing the inputs to read out what you have connected to them (ex. DVD, VHS, etc.) to make it easier to use. This should get you signal from your blu-ray

Close captioning on HDMI


The TV will not display closed caption with HDMI input. It must either over-the-air (antenna) or composite input for the TV to manage CC.

To get CC with HDMI from your Comcast DVR, you need to configure the cable box. Instructions can be found here:
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/How_to_use_a_Motorola_DVR/Setup

If you want CC all of the time, this works well. But since you must power-off the cable box to change the setting, switching CC on and off is a real pain.

Your set-up is similar to mine (Sharp Aquos 46" and Comcast DVR). I have the composite output from the cable box going to a DVD-recorder and on to the TV. Whenever I need CC (usually to catch some mumbled dialog), I just rewind the DVR, and switch the TV input to the composite input. Then I switch back to HDMI to continue watching in HD.

Cant get the wiring figured out.........


TV is HD correct? Use the Y/CB/CR from the Sat to the TV. Use the Digital optical cable for sound from the sat to the receiver. Use the s-video from the dvd player to the tv and the l/r to the receiver for sound. I would suggest upgrading to another set of Y/CB/CR cables to connect your dvd to the TV and benefit from better picture. Also, buy another optical cable for dvd sound (so you can enjoy surround sound). Your receiver has two optical inputs so youre covered there.
