Re: connecting tv to dvd player

Hi All
I have the PFM-42V1E with DVI and SVGA inputs only.
I have a special lead that you can get with scart one end and SVGA other - perfect. It also comes with video sync and a little transformer - this is why you have no picture!
Try looking for SyncBlaster cables - there must be many suppliers / variations but i got mine at
Be warned though a good cable will cost you 50-70 GBP.
Hope it helps

Re: connecting tv to dvd player

It should be fairly straight forwards.. Simply get the SCART to SCART Cable.. Connect up the Two, DVD to Screen, turn them on, selecting any input/outputs Format etc, setups from any Menus...then start player select "Play" & ya should see the Picture & hear the sound...

Connecting Alba DVD to Toshiba TV

If the TV has the red, white and yellow sockets on it you can use an adapter. It's a scart plug on one end (for the DVD player) and 3 little round sockets on the other, usually red, white and yellow, sometimes red, black and yellow, like this:Amazon.
Then you need an audio/video lead with red, white and yellow plugs on both ends like this:Amazon

Or one of these:Amazon

You could also use a multi socket scart adapter to add more scarts to your TV:Amazon

My Element TV is hooked up to the Dish Network. I have a dvd hooked up to the TV also. What do I have to do to watch the dvd on the tv


To watch a DVD your player needs to be connected to the TV using a scart or RCA connectors (red, yellow and white) depending on the type of connections available to you. The easiest way to connect the DVD player to a television is via Audio/Video connections that are usually supplied with it.
Next plug in your DVD player and power it up.

Next use your remote to select AV 1, 2 or 3 or HDMI - depending on the input you used at the back of your TV. Insert DVD and play! For example, if the DVD player is connected to the SCART socket labeled Av1, then you need to select Av1 with the remote.

The use of your DVD player is not dependant on the dish receiver - it works on a serarate input direct to the TV. Connecting your DVD player in this manner direct to your TV will not affect your cable or antenna connection to your television.

Having prblems connecting DVD player...I have 2

The easiest way is to use a scart lead, other than that, Is your TV switched to RGB or Component. I would switch the set between component and RGB. You`ll probably find that this sorts out your problem. If you still have problems, connect the DVD to another set with scarts and double check what the DVD output is set to, either RGB or Conmponent.

Hii i cannot connect my tv to the dvd player , can u tell me how can i fix this problem

I wrote this down to connect at Digital Freeview box to TV and to Video. It works for me on a portable TV and I am a grannie so if I can do it ............ I did buy one of those scart boxes which allows 4 scart leads just like an electric plug multi socket, very cheap price. Hope this helps and Happy New Year.

Take the scart connector box lead to the digi box.

The scart from the TV and the scart from the Video both go to scart box.

TV aerial itself not plugged in or used.

Bottom video aerial to right digi hole
Another aerial lead (not aerial) from TV hole to left digi hole

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality

Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!

Audio via hdmi

Have you tried to hook up your DVD player directly to the surround sound system? If you direct the sound through the TV, it has to pass several circuits and the quality will be lover. Just connect it right away to your sound system. :-)
