Question about GPX PDL805 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Connecting to front inputs of a Toshiba tv

The directions(manual) for this player is very poor input. What does NTSC, PAL, AUTO mean? Or on the Audio setup, SPDIF/OFF/RAW/PCM mean?     I have bought three different cables to connect the portable dvd player to tv and still cannot view movie on my tv. Manual states to use s-video/audio cable, I want to connect to the front of my tv for easy use. The tv does not have s-video in the front.  I have taken the GPX player into Radio Shack and they suggested the most recent cable(Camcorder A/V cable).  My son has a old DVD player and we use a simple standard A/V cable, works great, but my new GPX DVD player isn't that way at all.  I looked up the GPX mgf. site, they have a PDL805-AV-CBL,(dolby digital DT3 audio video cable) is this what I need to view movies on the tv instead of portable player? HELP please, Darci

Re: connecting to front inputs of a Toshiba tv

As a replacement for "Dolby Digital DT3 AV cable" can be used a " 3.5mm (mono) to RCA(or coaxal)" Cable.
Just make sure that DVD Player set for "SPDIF/RAW" or "SPDIF/PCM" output

Change ntsc to pal

The manual seems to indicate that the TV will automatically detect what signal type is present, so PAL should be recognized. There is, however the possibility that the "Color System" setting under the system menu may not be set to "AUTO", but NTSC. This would cause a conflict when detecting PAL input and affect picture. Check the "Color System" and either select PAL or AUTO and see if that helps.

Please help

Have you try: NTSC on PAL TV On • NTSC discs will play correctly on PAL-only TVs.
Off Use if your TV is already NTSC-compatible.

Many recent PAL TVs are compatible with NTSC input and so this setting can be switched off. Check the operating
instructions that came with your TV. See also About NTSC on PAL TV on page 124 for related information.

I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?

Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

Will the dvp 311ok play ntsc dvd i am in australia and i am reg 4

As long as the NTSC DVDs are not region coded, and your TV is multi-standard (able to receive NTSC as well as PAL signals via A/V inputs or similar connections), the player should play NTSC just fine through it

I assume this is a PHILIPS player? If so, most PHILIPS DVD players support NTSC playback on PAL TV.

You are correct, Australia is region 4 for DVD standard. The only restriction would be region codes.

You have to select the correct External Input, on TV, you do NOT use "Channels" Then select correct format either NTSC or PAL, turn on camera to play, then you should be OK.

Can't get anything to show on TV screen..No menu or anything..

I'm still confused. Walmart has this with pictures. This DVD player has regular RF Coaxial TV output and input. But, the best way to connect it would be Video Out and Audio Out for the connection from the DVD Player to the TV. I guess it has a tuner in it? or else why would it have a TV input on a DVD player?

Specifically the Pr, Pb, and Y connectors and the Red and White - Left and Right Audio Out connectors.

That would give you the best audio and video to most modern TV for last couple of years. (I don't see HDMI but that would be even better if it had that.)

So does your TV not have Component Video (Pr Pb Y) inputs? And Audio Left/Right inputs?

If not then you are connecting Coaxial Cable RF input to your tv? The TV would have to be in TV mode in this case and on the correct channel ... I would imagin Channel 3 or 4 of the old NTSC style TV channels. Most TV's still do those - even with the new Digital TV channels being active.

My dvd/vcr player has alot of static and lines on the tv

Check and make sure you have the composite cable (5 color cable) connected correctly and you have the NTSC/PAL set to NTSC (north american if applies) If you have a audio out (r/wh) cable into the RGB inputs on the TV, itll knock out a color or chroma channel and itll look strange.
