SOURCE: the HDMI "input" ports damage output ports of connecting devices

i know this sounds stupid, but have you "toggled" or "played" with the HDMI cables? are they the same manufacturer? HDMI channel connections are very fickle. If just one connection is not exactly correct, they go to a limp, no go status. Since they run at such a minimal voltage, i can't see them "blowing" the outputs on the devices.however....if your cable has a serial type output for video only, I would connect the hdmi convertor to it and see if it works.

SOURCE: no video

I am not sure if you have gone into the Receivers Menu or not? If you have NOT! Then please try this: Go into the Receivers Menu (If you do not see the MENU on the TV you can hook up a Composite (Yellow) Cable from the Receivers Monitor Out (Yellow) and select the Input on the TV that you plug into) Look in the Menu for Inputs or In/Out Config. or Video Setup. Look for the Input that you are using for that Device. Change the Video setting to HDMI. I also recommend doing this for you Audio as well. Find the Audio Inputs and MATCH each Input to there DEVICE and CABLE (Connection) Being used. Also check in the Receiver Menu for UPSCALE or UPSCALER. Turn this on or off to see if your TV is Compatible! Hope This Helps! P.S. Check the Manual for Upscaling Capabilities NOT all Receivers upscale and route the SAME!

Do not use HDMI thru your receiver. Go directly from the Cable box to the TV. Connect coaxial digital or optical to your receiver. Your receiver uses HDMI version 1.1 or 1.2, which is riddled with issues. If you want to read about them, Google HDMI Problems and you can read for hours. Long of the short of it is; Don't pass HDMI thru your receiver, use the receiver for audio only. Hope this answers the question. Sorry for the bad news! I'm in the industry and have been dealing with these issues for a couple years now.

SOURCE: No sound on DVR HDMI port, but does work on other HDMI port

Not all HDMI ports support Audio or they do but only one way Audio out or Audio In. If you have an optical connection you can try that.

Does my fire tv stick need a cable box to function or can I just plug it from my tv to the electric outlets


The Fire Stick just needs a HDMI port to plug into. The ones on the tv (assuming it's a newerish tv with HDMI connections) will work fine.

How to connect tv, direct tv box, and home theater together properly ?


Hi Vincent

That would be a heap of detail to go into. Time consuming...

Hopefully this quick pointer might help.

What is HDMI
High Definition MultiMedia Interface

Note the word MultiMedia
This Means....Both HD Video & Sound through the one cable.

HDMI is the latest state of the art connection.
Use this wherever possible. It's made for High Definition
More Convenient

Use a HDMI cable from one device to the other wherever both devices have that port type (connector).

You don't have to pay a premium ridiculous price for HDMI Cables as in the Monster type. Overpriced.
Well made regular brand & Gold pins are nice. Keep them Short.
Long Cables loose quality. 1 Meter is default.

Your LCD TV should have more than one HDMI port for inputting & outputting media (sound & video)

HDMI can be used for INPUT or OUTPUT
Eg OUT to an Amplifier or IN from a device like DVD Player.

On the OLDer equipment you will Have a YELLOW connector. That is used for the Video signal.
The RED is RIGHT AUDIO.
The WHITE is LEFT AUDIO.
Fiber OPTIC cables are a better way to transfer AUDIO than the red & white cables. Cleaner.
But this only works if the 2 devices have an optical port available.

Some New Amplifiers are smart and may require you to select the optical port in the settings instead of the default HDMI.
This may also apply to HDMI Port Choice.
Simply plug the HDMI in first & check.
Use a known source e.g. play a DVD or CD or Radio Reveiver as a signal.
ONE HDMI Port on the TV might be an OUTPUT ONLY channel (PORT) to an External Amplifier (if you wish to use one)

HDMI on external devices will be Outputing video & sound on their HDMI Port
To the INPUT HDMI PORTS on the TV.

Some TV's will fall back to a particular HDMI port on power fail or startup therefore not requiring you to use the remote every time.

External SPEAKERS should have the polarity checked. Eg Red (or marked wire) to the same post on either speaker. This makes sure that the speakers travel forward together at the same time. Pumping sound forward then retracting together....
so they are not fighting against each other.
.......This is called out of phase & distorts sound.

Hope this Helps

Enjoy Your New Entertainment

.......Then give me a tick of approval for my trouble....

How do i get laptop onto tv?


Set it on top of the TV, use glue if needed ;-). Just kidding...

Well, if both your laptop and TV have an analog video port, you can use that. Or, if they both have an HDMI and/or DVI video port. Otherwise, your probably SOL.

For the analog video port (DB9 connector, looks similar to a serial port), you will need a video cable first (see Radio Shack or similar store). Both the TV and the laptop need to be COMPLETELY OFF prior to physically connecting them together with the video cable (not necessary for HDMI or DVI) or you could FRY one or both of them! Prior to turning on the TV, the laptop's video resolution should be adjusted to the TV's native resolution. You'll also have to run sound patch cords from the laptop to the TV's audio in if you want sound (Not needed for HDMI).

You "may" need to setup the video card (either somewhere in the OS, or in the BIOS setup screen) to display to the external video port.

An HDMI or DVI port setup should be much easier to do.

Obviously, you'll need to tell the TV which port(s) to look for the incoming video/audio via your remote control (or look in TV's menu system for that).

Hope this helps, let me know how it turns out...

Just set up RX-A700 two things seem wrong. 1. HDMI 1 won't show video if HDMI is plugged in, once plug on HDMI is removed from receiver HDMI 1 works perfectly. 2. HDMI output needs to be held tight or else...


sounds to me like a bad HDMI cable. Just replace it.
If HDMI still wont show, move to another HDMI port. But based on having to hold HDMI cable with hand to steady the connection, it is either a bad HDMI cable, or a bad HDMI port on the receiver. Good luck

I have an Emerson 42in flat screen lcd. It has 3 hdmi ports, a pc port, etc. What I need is an audio out port and the only audio out port is the Digital audio out. My ps3 and xbox 360 are hooked up through...


If you have a home theatre system, most receivers have a digital audio input that you can use and hook that up to the digital audtio output on your TV. I have the same TV, and this is how I am doing it.

The other option is to get a new receiver that supports HDMI, and feed you HDMI into the receiver and then use the HDMI out from the receiver to the TV.

These are about the only options you have.

No longer getting video feed through Home Theatre receiver


HDMI ports 5 and 6 on the back of tv no longer are working. (We had a series of thunder storms so don't know if that is how they got damaged or if it was something else) but moved HDMI input cable to HDMI port 4 on tv and everything is working again. Service call placed for warranty service on tv to repair bad ports.

My hdmi port is not working


I have Verizon Fios and there's a known issue with the motorola HD boxes that they have bad hdmi ports, the screen goes green and that's it, nothing I can do about it I just use component cables. You need to be sure it's your tv not the cable box. Try the hdmi on a dvd player or ps3 or whatever else you have first just to be sure it's the tv at fault not the cable box. If you determine it is the tv you need to replace either the main board or the video board depending on your specific tv model. Some have the video inputs on the main boards some have video boards.
