If I remember correctly, this TV has a couple of constraints that will cramp your style:

1. It supports 480i, 480p and 1080i. NO 720P
2. It has component video inputs, but NO HDMI. (as you stated)

There is no easy solution here, because I've never found an upconverting DVD player that would upconvert anything past 480p using the analog component outputs...

So..

Perhaps you can find an Upconverting BLU-RAY disk player that may allow older DVDs to be upconverted to 1080i via the component outputs.

MOST Blu-Ray players allow 1080i output via the analog connections on Blu-Ray discs, so perhaps there is your solution.

OH. I have a DVD player/VCR Recorder. I have Cable TV. How do I connect DVD player/VCR recorder to Samsung Smart TV?


Unless your DVD/VCR is Upconverted to use HDMI, then you would use either the RED/GREEN/BLUE + Red /White leads to your TV and then use the TV remote to select whichever your TV names that input. If it is Upconverted, then simply plug the HDMI cable into a spare HDMI input.

Make sure your DVD player has HDMI or Component RGB output,you will also need RGB component cables or HDMI cables to connect the DVD player to your Vizio,once you have attached one of the above cables you will need to press the input button on your TV'S remote to select either HDMI or Component.

DVD hooked up to sony bravia tv: have dvd power on, but can not get any set up menus (or anything) from dvd to show on tv screen.Unable to set up remote as menu does not appear on tv screen.


Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed).
Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.

I have been trying to hook my dvd player up to my WD-52528 mitsubishi,but i am having touble trying to figure it out so i can watch a movie,and i have misplaced my manuel.can anybody help me?


If you have an upconvert dvd player use a hdmi cable, it's the easiest. If not use component cables for video (red green and blue, labeled Y, pb, pr on the back of the tv) and standard left & right ( red and white) for audio.

Dvd is grainy picture


You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!

DVD Upconverters???


Greetings jhays82,

Some DVD players can upconvert DVD signals to resolutions that match those of HDTVs, and send them to a compatible TV via a digital video connection. HDMI (High-Definition Media Interface) and DVI (Digital Visual Interface) both offer high-quality digital transmission of standard- and high-definition video signals. HDMI can also carry multichannel audio, and is backwards compatible with DVI (video only). So in other words, to receive the full benefit from an upconvert, you would want to hook it up with HDMI or DVI.

Thank You,

Agent Dort,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
