Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player


Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

HDMI Cable yanked out while tv was on!!


Bryan, it looks like you had damaged the HDMI interface chip when the connecter bent. The bending created a short with two of the contacts in the chip.
I had a similar situation where the HDMI cable from the cable box was yanked off without any visible damage. However, the same cable work with the dvd player. In my case the interface in the cable box was damaged. It is not worth the trouble to repair the board.

HDMI connection


It is possible that the DVD player is not outputing through the HDMI connector, or the TV has a problem with the HDMI input on the input board. This would have to be properly checked.

Start by calling the tech support for the DVD player to know if there is a setting for this, or if the player is defective.

Then check to make sure that there are no settings in the menu for the TV and player that are keeping the HDMI turned off.

If all else fails, call the tech support for your TV set. The next step will be that you must get the set serviced.

TV has picture but no sound


Manufacturer and model number of TV would be helpful for maximum assistance.
What type of cable is connecting your sat box/cable box/dvd player/etc to your TV?

If it is via a red/green/blue cable, make sure you also have an additional red and white audio cable connected, and select YPbPr (or component audio) in your TV's menu


If it is via an HDMI cable, go to your tv manufacturer's website and get a firmware upgrade for your TV (if TV has a USB port).

Hi guys, don't know if the previous post got through. Have a new LCD tv and DVDr, connected with a HDMI cable. when DVDr switched off analogue and digital picture is fine. as soon as dvd is switched on...


yes, hdmi will give you better results..
are you running hdmi to hdmi connection on tv from cable box?
if so, that is correct but as for the dvdr, what tv port are you connecting it to? i would use another hdmi cable for the dvd too for best picture resultif it's an option on your dvd.. you should have multiple input outlets on your lcd with 1-3 options for input devices via analog or hdmi.. so analog is not hdmi--hdmi is digital so it switches to the hdmi resolution when you turn it on..

let me know how it goes and if i was helpful involving resolution.. helpful feedback is appreciated.. thanks, d

your dvd player should be set to a different

Hdmi Issue


Most new HDMI DVD players use High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)on the HDMI output.If you try to play this on an older TV that is not compliant with these new standards it will not work.This standard came out late in 2004 that is why your older player still works. There is also a service bulletin from JVC about upgrading the software on your TV for HDMI compatiblity issues.If you want a pdf file of the bulletin I can send it to you.
