Question about Panasonic TH-50PHD8UK 50 in. Plasma Television
I am trying to hook up a Panasonic HT50PX77U Tv to an older Harmon Kardon AV135 receiver. When I use high def component cables thru the receiver the on screen display won't be displayed to adjust speaker settings. This function only works on standard definition ( S video ). Harmon Kardin suggests using a legacy connection at the back of the TV.
Guys, What is a legacy connection, does this TV have one and how do I set it up?
Alternately, could I run an a DVI by HDMI adapter straight from my cable box to the TV, an Optical cable straight from my cable box to the receiver for sound, and two S video cables one from the cable box to receiver and one from the receiver to TV? Wouldn't I have to change inputs on my TV every time I wanted to adjust sound, then back to high def for TV veiwing?... if I used this kind of hook up.
Damn, my head is starting to hurt.
S-video is a legacy connection. legacy means obsolete and this will impare your image.
what you should do is connect the cable box and blue ray directly to tv with hdmi cable, then run audio cables back to the reciever from these devices. the vcr and regular dvd player would be routed through the reciever the conventional way. you would have to change the inputs on the tv between the cable box, and blue ray if u have one, and a seperate single tv imput for components running thru the stereo. you would have to use the reciever to select between audio sources, and the video sources between the vcr and dvd only.
