Question about Panasonic SA-HE100 Receiver

1 Answer

DVD with RCAs, TV with Scart. Have an adaptor but no joy. Why?

It's a new Phillips DVD player and an old Goldstar TV. The DVD has Y,R,W plugs and the back of the Scart adapter is G,R,B. I've tried plugging it in various diff ways to check but think I"ve got it right; Y=G, R=R, B=W?  But I still can't tune my TV into it. I don't have remote for the TV so am hunting through the channels trying to find the DVD signal.
My problem is, I don't know if it's not working because the TV needs to be on an AV channel I can't reach without a remote (although I have had this TV tuned to a VCR before) or if it is because I've got the plug round the wrong way. Help!

    Erm... thanks but there is no yellow at the other end. That's the problem; I'm working with colours that do not match. I have rca out of the DVD, pls a few other sockets i haven;t really looked at, and the TV ONLY has a scart socket, which I've now plugged a GRB adapter into.
    Do I need to use different output points from the DVD perhaps?

The dvd has Y= video composite, R= Right channel audio, W= Left channel audio these are the common jacks of electronics, Now the G=Green,R=Red,B=Blue are usual Component VIDEO OUT/IN for higher video resolutions, this could explain no video picture, try the Y=Yellow to Y=Yellow from dvd to TV then set tv to a VIDEO input 1 or 2

    You can check to see if the DVD player has component video out 3 rca jacks pB pR pG many DVD player use this video out for higher video resolution, not sure about an older goldstar TV using this video input but newer TV monitors will have this option for input, the vcr would work on a freed-up RF channel like channel 3, but DVD video signal will not work on a channel frequiency, you need to use a video input mode to make the tv a monitor, some tvs will work if you get a 00 channel but many require you acsess the video in selection, check if your dvd and tv have a possible s-video plug, this will be a round din type adaptor with 6 little pins, maybe try out of the dvd player into your vcr and then to the tv, this will work in some setups.

I have a THS220 box and have difficulty recording programmes

Hello Joan,

To record a satellite you will need two scart leads.

Plug one end of the first scart lead into the "DVD/VCR SCART" socket on the back of the satellite receiver, then plug the other end into the "INPUT" scart on the back of the VCR. Take one end of the second scart lead and plug it into the "OUTPUT" socket on the back of the VCR and plug the other end into "SCART IN" socket on the back of the TV.

To record, select the satellite channel you want to record, then, on the VCR, select scart input, (at this point, you can record a satellite program). To watch a satellite channel or recorded satellite channel, select the scart input on the TV.

If you need anymore information, then let me know.

Kind regards,

Cant figure out how to hook up the receiver to my phillips hi def tv and get the sound?

its old model, will not pass hd video, good only for audio. Connections depend on your equipment. If you use a cable box to watch tv, connect cable box audio out rca connectors (red and white), by an audio rca cable, to audio TV input on the back of the receiver. Now when you swith your receiver to TV input you get sound from cable box trough your speakers.
If you use DVD player: connect audio out of the player to dvd audio input of the receiver. Switch the receiver to DVD input, you have sound from DVD.

I have a new rca receiver and have it hooked up to my dvd player which works fine. I have it hooked into my tv and Im not getting sesurround through my tv how can I connect to the tv to make it work my tv...

Take a clue from the 10-year old vintage of the TV and the two analog audio cables. It's Dolby Pro Logic Surround at best, not Dolby Surround in the modern, digital, multi-channel sense.

TV's are not the source nor the end of a multi-channel audio chain. Feed this thing a 2-channel source from a Cable Box (into the "TV" jacks), DVD, Video Tape or CD with proper Dolby Surround encoding and will seem to open up the sound field a bit and kick in a little surround effect. It can also simulate a Hall effect and Dolby 3 stereo.

Can not get bluray to get signal to TV, have it all hooked up w/ HDMI cables-worked on old bluray, new one is Panasonic.

you can but not direct, your tv must have scart in or svhs input, or a hdmi input (on component video out), or you can test with cd\dvd out section.

Note is 3 ways to send to tv. (component video),Monitor, or CD\DVD

The component video is controled by receiver selection menu (as normal output), the monitor is sample from 2nd level menu (as receiver next step) and CD|dvd is what is bypass from CD\DVD INput)

Unable to hear voices

unfortunately you cannot hook a dvd player to a receiver, the dvd player has to be hooked directly to the tv.

Cable hook-ups for TV, Satellite Box, DVD, VCR

Use SCART lead from Sat. box to VCR input( so you can record progs.) then another SCART lead from VCR output to TV set AV1 input. Connect DVD (player only I presume) direct to AV2 input of TV set using another SCART lead.
Hope all this works O.K.
Note:- If DVD is also a recorder then you don't need VCR as a recording device and leads will need to be altered accordingly, of course!!

Does your TV support "Line In" or "Aux" or "External"? if so plug your "Low end" DVD directly into the back of the tv and verify that you Can get audio. Quite a few DVD players do have a mute feature. Be sure this is turned "off"...accordianman
