Hi,

This should give you an idea to start of with.

Connecting the DVD Player Connecting a DVD player to your stereo receiver (or television, if you don't have a receiver) involves making two basic connections: audio and video.
Audio
The first connection to make is for the audio portion of the signal. There will be several options depending on the receiver you have.

  • The best choice (if available) is either to use an optical (also called Tos-link) or coaxial (RCA) digital connection. These two choices are equal in quality. In order to use either of these, you will need to have both an output on the DVD player, and an input on the receiver. Only receivers with built-in Dolby Digital decoders will have this type of input.

    The audio outputs on a DVD player

  • If your receiver does not have a built-in Dolby Digital or DTS decoder, but is "Dolby Digital ready," look for the 5.1-channel Dolby or 5.1-channel DTS. This connection involves six cables, corresponding to different speaker channels: left front, center front, right front, left rear, right rear and subwoofer.

hook your dvd player up to the tv via hdmi, then take the optical audio output from you tv to the soundbar. Make sure to enable to audio output jack in the tv setup menu as some manufacturers disable this jack by default.

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 amazon.com, 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

We have just bought a samsung dvd r155, we are having great difficulty in connecting the dvd to the tv via a hdmi cable. Both the tv & the dvd have hdmi ports. When the tv is receiving the digital output...


In order to record on the DVD-R155 you need to be subscribed to Cable or Satellite and have a set-top box with the audio/video plugs and not just a coaxial cable from the wall. With just the cable from the wall you can only play DVD's. I have an older TV and need to change to channel 91 in order to play a DVD

Samsung DVD-SH855


Hi Thanks to all. Problem was solved by my son who suggested that I turn the unit off in standby mode. Samsung DVD-SH855 will not record via timer settings when the unit is left with pwr on. Only works if pwr switched off.
Had I known this prior to purchasing I would have purchased a brand that worked with pwr on.
