    I have a HP Pavillion w/ windows vista home premium. I have had to have a new video card installed because a storm took out the original video card. (the new one installed is supposed to be better- not sure what kind). I also had an HDMI connection supply added.

    PC Model HP Pavillion M8047C- X86 Based PC. My pc connects fine to my TV. My Blu-ray and Wii connect fine to my TV. My question is how can I have them ALL connect to my pc? I thought connecting my PC to the TV would automatically allow Blu-ray and Wii to connect to pc as well since they are connected to my TV, however I found this is not the case. How can I connect them all to PC at once? Blu-ray instructions say I have to connect my earthnet cable directly to Blu-ray, how can I connect earthnet cable to blu-ray when it is connected to PC and there is only one earthnet outlet on sataliter reciever? (I am sorry if I soud dumb- I don't know much about PC's or electronics).

    Thanks ginko! What about router for the earthnet satalite hook ups? blu-ray says need to connect to the earthnet cable, but if I connect blu-ray directly to computer like I did the tv,using the hdmi sugguestion you gave me that should work right? there should be no need for the earthnet connection on the blu-ray right?

  • zzharley007 May 17, 2009

    Thank you Ginko- You have been a big help, and you did it without making me feel stupid- Thank you, I appreciate that. Have a great day!

You need to buy an HDMI wallplate if you want to connect many high definition devices, such as Blue ray and LPD TV to the computer at once.

You need something like this one: HDMI hub.
or 4-port HDMI switch / hub

The cost is between $280 and $600

Any other arranged solution , even using a graphic card with one HDMI, and arranging other connection on DVI and VGA to hdmi adapters, or RCA cables , will not work fine, presenting several problems.

Regards.

    The connection from blue ray to earthnet is used to download the updates from network. The connection from Blue ray to computer with HDMI is instead used only to transfer video data, and cannot be used to download blue ray updates.

    If you want you can use a wireless access point like NETGEAR WG602 to connect the blue ray to router (if for example computer is in a different room) , but you still need to establish connection between router and blue ray. Setup wireless access point to connect to main router from distance, then connect blue ray to computer and to access point.

    You will still need to connect the Blue ray to the Earthnet router.

    Do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

    Thanks.

    I can also spot an additional problem that is the earthnet router having only one ethernet plug.

    That can easily be fixed by adding an ethernet switch (StarTech.com 5 Port 10/100 Desktop), or wireless access, or an additional router (not modem router) to wire many devices to same earthlink router.

    The best technique is to look at the back of your TV.
    If you will notice some colored sockets with an 'Input' label, then you
    know that you can do appropriate connections. The same strategy can be
    used when it comes to your VCR.



    More Tips for Your TV Connection



    There are a number of things that can help you out when you're trying to connect your Wii to your TV:



    - The AV inputs are usually round sockets made of metal.

    - They come in three types of colors, such as white, yellow, and red.
    The red color is for right audio input while the white one is for mono
    sound or left audio input. The yellow, meanwhile, is for the video
    input. There are a number of televisions, however, that only have one
    audio input.

    - Spot the one that is marked A/V In. Don't try to connect your Wii to anything with a label 'Out' or else, it won't function at all.

    - Use the color codes when you're going to insert the plugs found in your Wii A/V cable. If there are no labels, get your television manual. Usually, they are well identified there.

    - If the cables are already inserted in their proper places and you have already turned on the Wii console, you should locate the Input Select of your TV. This way, you can start viewing or selecting your favorite game. You can make use of a TV remote control for it, or you can simply manipulate the front panel located in the television. Press the button for TV/Video. If there are many input channels, just continue pressing the button until you can find the Wii console display.



    For Your Computer Monitors



    There are a number of people who make use of computer monitors rather than their television when you're going to play Nintendo Wii.
    However, this is going to be initially difficult as home consoles of
    Nintendo are only meant to be used in VCRs and home televisions this,
    of course, with the help of RF or A/V connectors. Since monitors of your PC dont have any of these, you need to look for alternatives. One of these is through the use of a PC TV card.



    This is when you insert a TV card inside your PC so you can connect the console to the card. However, you should take note that you may not get the right image quality youre looking for in your Wii.

    Essentially your blu-ray playback should work like you are thinking. Cyberlink has a BD/HD advistor http://www.digital-digest.com/softwa...D... that should come with the software on your BD drive. If there is a problem with your setup, it will tell you.

HDTV HDMI hookup


Connect a HDMI cable from your source device (cable box, Bluray, satellite receiver) to your HDTV for High Def video and audio. This is the best hookup for HD, even 1080p. For 3D HDTV, make sure to get a high-speed category 2 HDMI cable. Select proper HDMI input on the TV using the remote. HDMI means High Definition Multimedia Interface.
Any newer digital TV (made after 2008) should have at least one HDMI input.

Is the 2005 model of this TV a high def?


Judging from the specifications from the manufacturer I would say this particular TV does not have HDMI connectivity. The listed input modes are S-Vid, Composite, Component, Tuner, DVI, and RS232. None of those listed inputs have High Definition capacity to the best of my knowledge, and the last two are most commonly used to hook Desktops and Laptops up to a television. HDTV Solutions

I cant connect my dish satalite to my ILO telivision, should it be connected to the ATV port or the DTV port.


If you satellite is HD don't connect it to either port, Use an HDMI or component (5 wire cable) so as to receive high def signals. If you must uase channel 3, You want the ATV input. On channel 3 YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HD PROGRAMMING> check your hookup guide from Dish network.

How do I hook up a Pioneer PDP-4300 for High Def?


That depends on what source your talking about.

Cable call you cable provider and ask them for a HDTV box

Satalite you should already have one if not ask them.

OTA =over the air you need a digital tuner with a nice antenna I suspect this has a digital tuner inside so all you need is a good antenna.

DVD= hook the DVD up with the red,green,blue cables called SCART connections..

Blueray= Will bring you high def.. with its connections.

So your question is vague and can be answered in so many ways.. Rate me please

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

Can a hdmi port be installed to a panasonic TH42PA50A


No, besides your television can only do enhanced definition (852 x 480) High def is 1920 x 1080. HDMI is for high def only, however, if you have something with an hdmi output that you need to connect to your tv there are adapters available to make such conversion. Sorry for the bad news but hopefully this helps

TV / DVD Recorder HDMI issue


By default most HDMI DVD players are set to produce their picture output on the Scart connection. This allows configuration of the device on all TVs.

However your manual should tell you (Probably in techno speak) what you need to do so switch it to HDMI mode.

I don;t have a copy but I am searching for it on the net. If I find out how I will let you know.
