    What are you trying to accomplish the S-video? What are you trying to hook your S-video up to? TV or amplifier?

Well, there is no way to convert S-video to HDMI. They're two different formats. You'll have to upgrade one or the other with HDMI.

Hdmi cable cables


Have you looked at your tv for HDMI inputs? What do you want to connect to it? There are two kinds of Hi def cables, one has five rca cables ...3 for video and 2 for audio. The other is for a standard HDMI cable. Your tv should have one or both types of inputs. Converting to HDMI cables will not solve anything, because even some HDMI sources do not embed audio on the cable. Converters that do embed cost several hundreds of dollars, but you must have compliant TV's and devices you wish to connect to be sure they will work..

Brand new emerson led tv has this red tint to it. I have the cable hooked up to the at&t u verse cable box and just a basic cable cord going from the cable box to my tv. Would a hdmi cable fix this


You would definitely want to try using a HDMI cable.
Your current hookup requires signal conversion too many times resulting is quality loss and more chances of introducting errors and this might be where your red tint is coming from.
Assuming AT&T is providing you digital signal at 720 resolution or higher, the box then has to convert back down to composite video (340 resolution) in order to send it to your TV over the basic cable cord. Your TV then takes this low resolution signal and blows it up to fit your nice new flat screen TV.
Skip all that and use HDMI and you'll get the best picture that your provider is sending you. The digital input stays digital and is passed onto your TV over the digital HDMI cable with no loss to video or audio.

How do you hook up a playstation to my vizio tv


depending on the age of your play station you may or may not have an hdmi output on the playstation. if youi do then its simple. one hdmi cable from the tv to the playstation and yoiur done. if not, you should have some round color coded plugs on the back of the tv and the same ones at the playstation. they should be just larger than a pencil eraser. these are called RCA plugs or phono plugs. the cables will have the opposite end with pin sticking out. you can go to google images and type rca plug to see a picture.

Video machine has one scart plug - television set


If your TV has No Scart Socket, it may have a Composite socket (Yellow) and an Analog Audio input (Red and White).
You can buy a Scart to Phono lead suitable for the job easily.
HDMI is no use to you with video. Get a PVR for future use, make life simple.

Bad picture


  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

Can't get sound through my hdmi


Try the easisest route first - unplug and replug HDMI cable into same port or the other hdmi port on the TV. Also, make sure the Monster cable isn't HDMI 1.3 - I'm not sure the HDMI ports on this tv are fully compat with 1.3.

If that fails, go to www.usasupport.philips.com, enter your model number, click on the verison of your model ending in /37, and click on "Software & Drivers"; click on the link that says "Firmware Upgrade - Software" - read the specs and see if it says anything about audio loss on HDMI - many Philips have issues with the HDMI ports - they are not broken, but just need a software fix. Instructions are on the same page - make sure you only transfer the .upg file, not the entire zip file to a portable memory stick.
Here are the notes I see:
BX23U-1.5.0.0_03531
Following problems are solved :
• Availability cablecard channel map.
• Improved info in the service menu.
• Improved picture quality and stability on HDMI.
• Installation of channels.
BX23U-1.4.0.0_03081
Following problem is solved :
• Issue related to intermittent video loss is solved.
