Hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.
simplify- blue green red= component red white yellow=composite
*wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.
then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

try different type inputs on your TV- HDMI, component, composite
then look in the menu of your DVD player- with no disc in it- find "setup menu" then find "video output format"- select the one you are using on the TV, the options will be HDMI, YpBpr (component) , video out (composite)
simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know
It depends, did you try to use it at a friends house or anytime using composite cables, maybe some how it was put on composite, which means that when you try to hook it up on hdmi it wont work, because in the settings it isn't on hdmi automatic or hdmi at all, and is on composite. If you have composite i would try that, then put tv on the right channel, and if it works, you just have to set it back to hdmi only or automatic, and hook back up by hdmi and try that, it happen's, if that doesn't work then it could be a further issue. But i would try that first.
It will depend on the TV/DVD combo and the DVD player. Most TV/DVD combos can have another device attached but you will need to get the cable. Since you posted this under the Insignia IS-DVD1001, I'm not sure which TV or DVD player you have.
In general, look at the back of the TV and the DVD player and see what ports are on both (input on TV and output on the DVD player). If you have HDMI out on the DVD player and HDMI in on the TV, get an HDMI cable and use that; generally you do not need the most expensive cables available. The next best choice is Component video and A/V audio. One cable with three RCA plugs (red, blue and green) on both ends carries the video and a second cable with two RCA plugs (white and red) carries the audio. The third choice is composite video or S-video and the audio. (Composite video is usually designated by yellow and is again an RCA plug. S-video is like a large version of a PS2 (keyboard or mouse) connector. All of these cables are available at electronics stores, stores that sell cables or electronic accessories.
If the two do not have the same ports, you need an appropriate converter (or modulator if the input port is the coax port on the TV). You can find many of these at RadioShack or online.
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.
Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above. Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
Hi beelzyboob.. try checking these.. since you are using the RCA (composite cables) and I assume you have them on the "DVD in" at the back, go to setup, go to input assignment and go to hdmi input. here, make sure dvd is set to" ----". Next, hit return and go down to component input and also check if dvd is set to "-----". With these settings, you should get video. This is because you are not using either an HDMI or component cable. hope this helps.. ^_^
Have you tried to hook up your DVD player directly to the surround sound system? If you direct the sound through the TV, it has to pass several circuits and the quality will be lover. Just connect it right away to your sound system. :-)
