P-scan is used for traditional television screens.
YUV encodes a color image or video taking human perception into account.
S video should be used with an S video cable and standard rca's for sound

I can not get the pic on the tv


Hi,

If this is a new DVD player that you have connected to your TV,
It can be connected in three different ways using three different cables.
only one type is required
  • one way is using a RCA cable, which is a yellow plug on the DVD and TV
  • another way is a S video cable, which is round and has multiple pins.
  • and the third way is a HDMI cable which is rectangular with multiple pins
Which every one you use, for eg if you use a HDMI cable to connect it up to the TV you will need to select HDMI on your TV via the remote and press TV/AV until you get to HDMI.

Also most DVD players have a menu to set up, which you can select what type of output picture lead you are using, Eg. HDMI or Composite = RCA or S Video.
I have enclosed a picture to determine which lead you are using.
If your TV is HDMI then this will give the best picture quality then S Video then composite RCA.

I hope this helps you

I just bought Panasonic SC-PT480P-K DVD home theater and TC-P46ST30 TV. I connect DVD HDMI output to TV HDMI input port #1. But when I try to play DVD, I just got sound out to the home theater speakers...


Let us take things step by step.
1) If you have an AV cable ( Yellow /Red/White ) try connecting the DVD players composite out (Y/R/W) to the TV's composite in. Select AV input instead of HDMI on the TV and see if you are getting an image. This is to confirm that the DVD video circuit is OK.
2) If all is OK in step one you can try buying a good HDMI v1.3 cable. You do not need a v1.4 cable which is only good for 3D bluray players.

Is the TV PAL or NTSC? The symptom you are experiencing is what would happen if you are trying to play back a NTSC signal on a PAL TV or vica versa. If you have a scart connection on theTV then use a scart lead to connect from the DVD player to the TV. Set the DVD player for RGB output which is independent of PAL & NTSC.

Do I understant this correctly? You are using a composite video cable (A/V y,r,w) and connecting it with the component video input (and then telling the TV to use the YPbPr source). You need a component video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end - red, green and blue) and an audio cable (2 RCA plugs - red and white) for the Wii. It wasn't included with the Wii but it does have the component video ports. Otherwise you would need a SCART to composite connector to work with the input. Alternatively, you could get an HDMI cable and connect that between the Wii and the TV (depnding on the age of the Wii).

If I've read this correctly, you have the media box and dvd player sharing the SCART input (EXT1).

I hope this helps.

No Picture on HDMI using Philips DVP5992.


You can try out by connecting the CVBS (Yello) out from player to TV and connect HDMI out from Player to TV. Goto CVBS input on Sony TV. Select set up and you should get the HDMI Video options availble. Try to change the resulution and check for Video on HDMI source.
Which disc you were playing PAL or NTSC? PAL should work for Europe.

Try pressing the HDMI button on your remote a couple of times, pause about 5seconds after each press it might be slow to change. If this doesn't work try connecting just the yellow lead(composite video) into the DVD player to the TV like the old days, probably AV1 or AV2 in the back of the TV. Then access the setup menu(setup button on remote). This will bring up a menu. Use the down arrow on the remote until HDMI setup is highlighted. You should then get a selection to turn HDMI on and select the different outputs(576, 720p, or 1080i). You might actually find the picture to be worse on some DVDs.

Dvd connection


Yes! You can pass the video signal through the receiver. This is most useful when you have more than one video device (e.g. DVD, cable box, VCR,...), and you can use the receiver to switch to the audio and video for the selected source at the same time.

On the back of your Onkyo HT-SR800 there is a section labeled "Component Video." It has three inputs and one output. So, attach your DVD by component cables to the "DVD In" and then attach component cables from the "OUT" receiver connection to the TV.

If your TV doesn't have a component connection, then this addresses your other question. You can't gain anything with this, because your TV doesn't support it. Connect the DVD to the TV according to the highest quality connection that they both support, in this order: composite, S-Video, component.

If you are using composite, but they both handle composite, than yes, you will get a better picture by going to component (or even S-Video). If both devices support progressive scan, this could be a substantial difference.

Your receiver accepts component, s-video and component video, but keep in mind, it may not do "video switching." So if you connect the DVD in via component, but go out to the TV over composite, then you may not get any video at all (but feel free to try). Try to avoid this, but you may be forced to try depending on the limitations of the various devices that you are hooking up.

Green Picture


The problem sounds like one I had. If so, the cause is as follows.

The Daewoo ouputs synchronisation information on the green channel of the RGB outputs (which are pins in the SCART socket) The Panasonic TV automatically preferentially selects the RGB input in the SCART rather than the composite video signal in the SCART. The video circuits in the Panasonic should ignore the sync on the green channel but instead interpret the sync as green signal information which means the adjustment of the green channel is upset leading to a very green picture.

Possible solutions:
1. From the TV, manually select composite video input, not RGB. This may not be possible - I think the TV automatically goes for the RGB if it is present.
2. Disconnect the wire to pin 16 in the SCART socket. This is the signal from the VCR/DVD to indicate that RGB is available. Disconnecting it means the TV defaults to the composite video. This is what I did.
3. Connect the TV to the VCR/DVD using component or S-VHS leads only.
