I just wanted to know how to hook up my lg 3d blue ray player. i'm not home so i can look at anything. I need to know how many HDMI cords I may need to plug in my tv, digital cable box, the a/v...


You can do this two ways.

Way #1 connect your cable box to your a/v receiver with one hdmi cable. Connect your blu ray player to your a/v receiver with a second hdmi cable. Lastly, connect a third hdmi cable from the a/v receiver to the television. (3 hdmi cables needed this way)

Way #2 connect your cable box to your television with one hdmi cable. Connect your blu ray player to your television with a second hdmi cable. Connect your a/v receiver to your television with a RCA/composite a/v cable or with a fiber optic cable. Connect your cable box to your a/v receiver with a fiber optic cable or RCA/composite a/v cable. Lastly connect your blu ray player to your a/v receiver with a fiber optic or RCA/composite a/v cable. This method takes 2 hdmi cables and three sets of fiber optic and or RCA/composite a/v cables.

Can't get more specific than that without having the a/v receiver's model number, type of cable box, and television model number. Hope this helps.

Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player


Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

Can a sharp Aquos bd player be hooked up to a cable box using the HDMI cable


Can I ask why?
If it's only a BD player only, there is no reason for connecting it to your cable box - with HDMI or any other type of cable. It simply needs to be connected directly to your TV for playback.
If it's a Blu-ray (or DVD) recorder, it can only be connected to the cable box with HDMI if the cable box has a spare HDMI OUT port and the BD recorder has an HDMI IN port.
If you want to connect the BD player to the cable box for playback on your TV via the cable box, then the cable box would need an HDMI IN port, which it's unlikely to have.
Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please provide model numbers of your equipment and explain why you need to connect the BD player to your cable box.
Regards, BElectric

I am trying to connect an Insignia flat panel TV to my existing Dish satellite system. Dish satellite system is not HDMI. We have: cable from the wall (satellite) connected directly to the new TV (exactly...


Hi,

I really need to know the model number of your Insignia TV and which connections you are using between the Dish box and the TV to give you the correct answer. If you are connecting both cable and satellite, I believe it should be set-up as follows:

1. Connect cable feed to TV
2. Run auto channel scan on "cable" setting
3. Connect Dish box to TV and then try changing the "input" selection.

With the Dish box switched on to a channel number you know, try pressing the "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button on your Insignia TV remote repeatedly until you find the satellite feed. Once you have done so, you should be able to change satellite channels using the Dish remote.

If you need further assistance, please post back with the model number of your TV and details of the connections you are using on the back of the TV.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a 42" LG plasma TV with a number of different inputs including a spare HDMI and component sockets, but have no idea whether there is a cable or convertor to allow me to connect to the amplified base...


do you have a cable box? with your wharfdale set-up, you could run the video from the cable box into the tv, and run the seperate audio oupputs from the cable box into the wharfdale.

thats really the most common way to run audio, either that or through hdmi- either way, you will need to hqave a cable box to complete the set-up, cause not that many tv's have audio or hdmi outputs.

Sharp vcr problem


The way to connect them is as follows:
1. Connect the cable from the wall to the cable input on the cable box.
2. Connect the cable box RF output to VCR RF input (VCR must be on channel 3).
3. Connect the RF output from the VCR to the RF input on your TV (TV must be on channel 3).
After all the connections are done, leave the VCR and TV on channel 3 and use the cable box to select the channel you want to record programs from.
Good Luck.

If you have cable then put the cable wire directly in the TV, bypassing the cable box. If the pix is Ok it proves that the problem is the cable box. If the problem is still there then it proves the the TV needs parts inside.
