Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

PC to TV can't seem to get to work.

I want to hook up my PC to my TV and can't get it to work. I've tried using the s-video cord and the yellow, red, and white ports. When I try this with my older note book it worked with the s-video cord. Is there something I need to change or input to make this transfer? I have a Gateway desktop with Vista Home Premium with the media center and a 50" Hitachi. I want to try using Hulu ect.

Okay buddy its esay just give me a good rate!

u select:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.

How should I hook up a dvd player? Which one of the input jacks. I am using rca connectors


mikehomco,

On the rear of the DVD locate the composite video output and audio outputs. The connectors will be RCA females. Video is yellow, right audio is red and left audio is right. Connect one end of your patch cable to the appropriate output color. On the TV find the video input one. Connect the yellow, red and white ends of the cord to the same colors on the TV, video input 1. If your TV has a source selection button use it to locate video input one. If not use the menu. Go to input select and choose video input one. Enjoy the movie.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Im trying to set up my tv, it was given to me as a gift, my uncle was using it it works i can change the channels but when i try to work my dvd player with it, only the audio comes on the screen stays...


Hi,
Please few things...
1- Make sure audio and video wires are hooked correctly in AV input of tv and you selected that AV input in tv with its remote.
2- Also check your dvd has not been set on progressive mode if you hook dvd player through yellow-red-white wires with tv.
3- if dvd player is set on progressive mode, then hook it with tv by component video input, red-green-blue for video and red-white for audio.
Hope this info will solve your problem.
Thanks.

No owners manual can't get new blue ray dvd player to work on tv


Here is the manual:

When using the HDMI connections you may have to tell the DVD to output to that port.  Also you may have to connect additional sound cables from the DVD output to the TV.

I am trying to install a phillips apapter RF modular to a televison. I have no idea whether to hook it up to the cable box or the TV. To be honest am not sure where the input cords go. Phillips SWS2326W/17


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the video (yellow) and audio (red & white) OUTPUTs of the cable box should go to the Video/Audio INPUTs of the RF Modulator. Thereafter, the TV should be set to Channel 3 (or whatever it is the RF Mod is using). This is done if and only if the TV has no A/V INPUTs and/or the cable box has no RF OUTPUT.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
