Does the TV have a plug connection I think is called DVI. There is a DVI to HDMI adapter that also needs an audio connection on TV to work. Other option is audio and video rca cables. You may also need to change input connection to correct source, as it may not be auto for connection

    My TV is the PT-53WX42F model. It is a projection HDTV with 1080i. I used the red, ble and green component cord to connect to the HDMI connection on the converter.

SOURCE: Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: HDMI Signal gone

The HDMI interface may have suffered a malfunction, this offten happens due to stray voltages on the ground plane. If you do not have electronics experience I would suggest taking the set to the shop and having it repaired

SOURCE: hdmi receiver to hd plasma tv

1) I believe the "3 prong" you mean the RCA A/V cable. This cable is color coded red/white/Yellow (Right Audio/Left Audio/Video). This cable is OK for regular TV but when it come to HD, the quality of the picture fall short.

But you also could mean the 3 wires component cable that color coded Green/Blue/Red. If you plug only this without the Red/White for the speaker then you will only see the picture. This component cable help make the pic a lot clearer. But I believe not as good as DVI and HDMI. More info here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_display_interfaces

2) Most universal remote control come with a preset of keys to emulate other remotes. You need to search for the owner manual to figure out how and what code to put to use with a certain device.
Most new Universal remotes has a learning mode too that the user can "teach" the remote to emulate that "IR signal".
Now for the "HOW". It's a little complicated. But here is my 2cents. Most basic remotes has a light in front and this light is Infra Red light. So you don't see the light but it blinks. The blinking is the data of 1 and 0 that computer uses. Most of the time the remote is in sleep mode which uses very little power. One press of the button, it switch on the remote and carry out the performance of that button. The brain of the remote figure out which button was pressed and search in it's memory for the blinking pattern and blinks the light with that pattern and then fall back to sleep.
For the pattern itself, it contain informations. It usually start with the ID of the device that suppose to receive the signal. Follow is the "flag" and then the information of the button that was pressed. Then the final signal is basically say "End" to indicate that the message end. All device within range will get this information but if the ID don't belong to it, it will ignore the entire message.


Hope what I said helped. :D

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 received a cobydvd224 as a gift but don't know how to connect to my cable box-pls help


There may be several ways, depends on your TV. Your TV may have: HDMI, Component, Standard Video, or RF in. You need to match one of those connections to the DVD players available connects. For example... if you have a newer HD TV your cable may be connected to the component input of the TV if there's an HDMI input on the TV and an HDMI output on the DVD Player, simply connect them together and put the TV in HDMI mode.

I know it's confusing sometimes, but read the book and you should be able to figure it out. Let me know if I can help more...

Optical carries only 5.1 sound, no video. HDMI carries both video and sound. If your receiver doesn't have HDMI, check your TV for optical output. You can go BluRay to TV via HDMI, then TV to receiver via optical.

If you don't have optical out on your tv, you're going to need either a receiver with HDMI or a BluRay player with component output (blue, green, red).

Multiple connections to Yamaha V463


Each HDMI port has its own source, such as DVD, Radio, etc. When you switch sources on the receiver, it sends the appropriate signal to the television. If I'm not mistaken, the 463 is only a pass through unit not a converting one so it you hooked up your DVD player through the S Video or Component it may not send the signal to your television through the HDMI, since it takes a converter to change the source from Analog to Digital. May be wrong on the unit though.

Component is better than S-Video. Also, use a fiber optic cable for sound from your DVD player if it has one. This setup will be the closest to HDMI, some argue better.

No Picture on HDMI using Philips DVP5992.


You can try out by connecting the CVBS (Yello) out from player to TV and connect HDMI out from Player to TV. Goto CVBS input on Sony TV. Select set up and you should get the HDMI Video options availble. Try to change the resulution and check for Video on HDMI source.
Which disc you were playing PAL or NTSC? PAL should work for Europe.
