How should I connect a Sony Wega KF-50WE620 to an XBox360 ?

Since the TV accepts HD signals only via DVI and component inputs, the only logical way is to use the "Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable" as show in the link below:

How to hook up your Xbox 360 or Xbox 360 to TV

The TV will not accept a VGA input. A cable converting HDMI to DVI would also require that you break out the L + R audio channels, too. The one I mentioned above does this all for you with no degradation in video signals.

How do I get my HDMI ports to read 1080i instead of DVI?

The question really doesn't make sense. That's because 1080i is a signal resolution, and DVI is the connection cable that carries the signal. The two things are connected, but different.

It sounds as if your TV is searching for a signal; looking first at the HDMI input, and then the DVI input, before giving up because it found no signal.

Your next question should add some detail about the makes and models of the equipment involved and how you have them connected.

blue screen means no video signal, if the source is on hdmi ensure the cable is rca or in simple audio video jacks which u will have to connect in the dvi input of the tv reason is hdmi means high definition interface and transmits by hdcp like the data of an internet meaning its digital platform which the tv can only process thru the dvi inputs or component y,p,b

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????

If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

I want to connect my computer to my Vizio TV to watch movies via netflix on my TV screen. If HDMI on TV end, what connection do I need to connect to the back of computer?

What "video-inputs" does your TV have:

* composite video (single cable for video, two cables for LEFT/RIGHT audio)
* component video (RED/GREEN/BLUE cables for video, plus RED/WHITE cables for stereo audio)
* DVI or VGA input
* HDMI input
* S-Video (similar to PS/2 keyboard/mouse, in size, and "round" shape)

What outputs does your computer's video-card have:

* composite (post-and-ring)
* S-Video

Just match them up.

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


The HDMI[1] input on your TV receives digital audio

and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a

DVI[2] device.

This input is designed to accept HDCP[3] program

material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-

compliant[4] consumer electronic devices (such as a settop

box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.

To connect an HDMI device, you will need:

• one HDMI cable (type A connector)

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use

a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter

difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4

ft (5m).

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may

not output digital audio signals. In that case, you

may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

However, if you connect analog audio cables with

this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset

properly, it is recommended that you follow

these procedures:

• When turning on your electronic components,

turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or

DVI device.

• When turning off your electronic components,

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

To connect a DVI device, you will need:

• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable

(HDMI type A connector)

For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).

The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables

Inputing HDMI signal to a WS-55313 55 via an HDMI-DVI cable

HDMI standard is a bear, especially "Older" versions. It should be possible to input HDMI to a DVI, either DVI-I or DVI-D, input, there are however DVI analogue too, in fact we have, 3 type of them, they are, DVI-I, DVI-A & DVI-D.... Also some HDMI do not send the Audio over it, as it should, so all in all it can be a pickle. So you MUST get a converter that works with your sort of DVI. You would have to select that DVI, input, which may be under Auxillary, or External or the like, try scrolling through your AV inputs, see if you "Find" it. if so, the set will "Read" the signal and display it automatically. The Audio, however will have to be done via the AV sockets, the Red & White stereo IN, from the DVD etc. If you have any other inputs such as Component Video, Green, Red, Blue, then this is the best way... The Audio, again must be routed to the AV, the Red & White Jacks. So ensure you have those outputs on your new DVD.
I have included a couple of links below about DVI & HDMI for your convenience.

the Flat Screen TV if has, a HDMI input, also has VGA Input.

You must choose :HDMI or VGA, if HDMI The VGA board must Have HDMI Connector, and you connect a HDMI cable to the TV.

The HDMI is a digital signal input/output, VGA is Analog Signal. You must have Signal Converter if you Use the 2 signals

How do i connect advent pc to philips hdtv. do i need to change settings?

well not really, you need to buy the proper cable depending on the inputs of your tv, it may have the standar VGA connection as the standar pc monitor.

DVI to VGA cable

after you have the proper cable just plug it, and turn it off, disconnect the standar computer minitor and turn it back on. the computer will set the input signal from the tv by itself.

thats for the video, for the audio you need a different cable

3.5 mm to RCA (white and red cable)
3.5 mm to 3.5mm headphonejack cable
but if you are using the HDMI to HDMI you don't need a sound cable.

HDMI to DVI-D conversion problem. Not in compliance?

It souunds like te TV is having problems with the streaming data being applied Most plasmas with DVI connections were actually designed for PC type input signals  Unfortunately the TV's input may not be able to stand up to the stream of signal the DVD or cable box wants to display. You can try and lower the output of both devices to 720P Good luck to you
