Re: hook-up and use.

You will be able to do HD video if you use the component video (RGB)jacks. Do not user the composite video (yellow) or S-video these will only give you SD video. The gold plated jacks perform a little better then the plain jacks.

I can not get the pic on the tv


If this is a new DVD player that you have connected to your TV,
It can be connected in three different ways using three different cables.
only one type is required
  • one way is using a RCA cable, which is a yellow plug on the DVD and TV
  • another way is a S video cable, which is round and has multiple pins.
  • and the third way is a HDMI cable which is rectangular with multiple pins
Which every one you use, for eg if you use a HDMI cable to connect it up to the TV you will need to select HDMI on your TV via the remote and press TV/AV until you get to HDMI.

Also most DVD players have a menu to set up, which you can select what type of output picture lead you are using, Eg. HDMI or Composite = RCA or S Video.
I have enclosed a picture to determine which lead you are using.
If your TV is HDMI then this will give the best picture quality then S Video then composite RCA.

I hope this helps you

I have a toshiba tv and a sony dvd player and i want to know how to install the jacks and if i need the hdmi cord

It really all depends on what else you may have hooked up and, what inputs you have on your TV. If you have an open HDMI in on your TV, I would use that because you will get your sound and vidoe with one cable(HDMI). If you don not have an open HDMI port on your TV, component cables are the your next best option video wise. The component cables do not carry sound so, you would have to get your sound by using,(best) digital optical or RCA. After looking at your player, your best picture would be using component and, it says it has SPIDF out but doesn't exactly specify what kind but, if you don't have the component cables, use youe RCA jacks(yellow), video out, and red and white(left and right audio) out from player to suitable input on TV. If I looked at the right player, there is no HDMI out on it.

G'day, I have an LG HDD/DVD recorder (model RH298H) connected to an LG plasma screen digital TV via an HDMI cable. On the TV I have crystal clear digital television (and able to tune all the digital TV...

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

How do you hook up the DVD player when you have AT&T cable running to the TV? There doesn't seem to be a schematic on where what goes to what? If you have it on print, can you please send to me email?...

Without having the model# of the TV or what connections are available I cannot go into details, BUT
A DVD player will need both Video and Audio connections connected to your TV. Depending on what connections are available on the back of your TV you have a few options
  • Composite Video (Yellow RCA connector)
  • SVideo (round 4 pin connector)
  • Component Video (Red/Blue/Green 3 RCA Connectors)
  • HDMI (flat rectangular digital connector)

Take a look on the back of your TV and see what types of these are available (or provide me your Model#)
HDMI will give you these highest quality signal....Composite Video the lowest

With all of the connections mentioned (except HDMI, HDMI has audio signal built in) you will ALSO need to connect the audio connection from the DVD to the TV as well (red/white RCA connectors)

I hope this helps,

How to hook up to hd tv

Use the highest resolution connection your HD TV will allow. This will usually DR570's HDMI connector. Most all digital video devices have one or more. The DR570 has an HDMI OUT. Connect it to any HDMI IN connector on your TV. You will then need to set the TV's Input selection to the Input Number you connected the DR570 to. See your TV Remote or Manual.

The DR570 has three types of output connection options, in order of quality; HDMI, Component(Red/Blu/Grn RCA jacks), S-Video (circular connector), and composite (Red/Wht/Yel, where Yel is video and Red/Wht are left/right stereo audio). Red/Wht RCA Audio jack connections are required to be made on all Output types excepting HDMI.

Note, to get your Digital channels, you will need to toggle the DR570's DTV/TV button. DTV is Digital TV channels. TV is analog channels, the DR570 found on your Cable or Antenna RF input coax, after you have done the Setup/General/Channels/Scan (extended). Scan only finds analog channels. Extended Scan scans for both Analog and Digital channels found active on your Cable/Antenna RF connection.

Note also, the DR570 is not technically and HD receiver. The term High Defintion (HD) is reserved to mean 1080i or p resolution, the highest available. The DR570 is an Extended Definition (ED) 720i or p receiver. It up-converts its ED to fit an a 16:9 HD TV screen. You will hardly notice the difference on your TV, but it is the difference between watching a DVD Movie on a standard DVD player, like this one, as opposed to a full HD player like a Blue Ray.

Can I connect this player to a hdtv?or do I need additional cables because it is only playing in black and white

Basically -yes; the picture quality may not be to your liking (there are ways to minimize this).
First let's get the units 'talking' to each other. There is no info showing re: the HDTV you're using, so I'll keep things generic.

Easiest: if both units have RF cable connectors (the old screw in cable TV types), hook 'em up with a short piece of cable, and make sure that the channels out & in match (they are ch. 3 or 4).

Next up: Look for RCA jacks for out & in on both units. The colors will be yellow, red & white. The yellow is video, the red & white are audio (lt. & rt. channels) Check the jack's labels to be sure. Fire up the player, and run the set up- Sources In on the TV, and follow the prompts to get both sources 'seeing' each other.

Better quality: Look for S Video connectors on both units (they will be round with 1 square & 3-6 round pins). If you have these & a cable, hook 'em up; you'll also have to do seperate audio connections too. With S video you'll have to check the TV's source menu, and go from there.

Best quality (short of HDMI): at the Video Output & Inputs of both units see if there are 3 RCA jacks (usually grouped & 1ea yellow, green & red (colors can vary due units ages)), match 'em up red->red, etc. this is important since this is how the colors will be displayed!! Now You also have to hook up your audio too. Again, fire up both units, with this type connection the TV may automatically detect the new input; otherwise let the units detect each other and go from there.

Out of the methods above, only the 'S' Video is a specialized cable; for the RCA type cables, regular Audio type cables will work. If there is a lot of RF interferance upgrading to better quality and shielded cables may be necessary.

I hope this helps out.

Hooking up Blu Ray player with HDMI to plasma TV (HDMI ready). Question has to do with audio. Normally would run HDMI cable from player to TV and use optical cable to receiver for audio. This is based on...

Run the HDMI to the receiver then from the receiver to the TV. There is no video loss when doing this and the TV can still do any type of fancy processing on the signal if you want it to.

This way you get the full audio experience and video.

Have a HT-X810 Samsung soundbar but cannot get any signal to the TV from the HDMI for playing DVD's. Works ok with scart but nothing out of the HDMI. Second unit this has happened on - am I doing something...

Dear rayoneill,
I just got an HT-X810 and hooked it up to my TV and had the same problem. I suggest that you ensure that you've selected the proper device input on your TV. My TV has a couple HDMI ports, in addition to a host of other connection choices, and I found that I was selecting the wrong HDMI input for viewing a dvd. Alternatively, when I was looking for an HDMI cable to hook up my unit I came across many chats/discussions/reviews that noted the properties of HDMI cables. The consensus among the discussants was that an HDMI cable either works or it doesn't - meaning that if there is a problem with the cable, you don't get a degraded image and sound you get nothing. Things that may lead to this include a loose connection or perhaps, and there was some disagreement among commentators on this, a poorly manufactured HDMI cable. Many claimed that due to the nature of digital signal transmissions, all HDMI cables are created equal so quality doesn't matter. However, when I was reading product reviews for cables available on, many people were very critical of the cheap cables' performance. At the same time, most everyone seemed to agree that expensive 'Monster' cables were a waste of money. I settled on a $10 HDMI cable and haven't had any problems.
Good Luck, Justin

I dont know how to hook up a dvd player

Depending on the model of DVD player and the TV you are trying to connect it to you have various inputs and outputs.

If your have an HD (High Definition) DVD Player and a HD TV the best input to use is HDMI. Both device would have an HDMI interface whereby you could connect them together.

If you have a standard DVD Player you have usually 3 other input/output options, RCA, S-Video, and Component. Your RCA jacks are colored Red, Yellow, and White. Your S-Video is a larger circular jack with several pins. The Component cable has Red, Green, and Blue.

Of the three above the Component Cable connection is going to give you best picture quality. S-Video is second and RCA is third. You just need to match up the connectors on your TV and DVD and get the cable that accommodates the best picture quality. Again for clarification below are the interface options for best quality to poorest:

2. Component
3. S-Video
4. RCA

Hope this helps.
