You just need to change the input of the tv to the input the DVR is on. If you are plugged into input 1 on the back of the TV then you need to switch your tv input to input one from your remote. The remote key you are looking for will be either "input" or "source".

How do I change the settings on my Westinghouse 50" TV from 720p to 1080p?

Most HDTVs these days do not have settings for resolution. They auto-adjust their resolution (within their specifications) to the signal being received. So, if you are receiving an over the air/cable television signal (most are 720p), you cannot force it to go to 1080p as it will not synchronize. You CAN adjust the aspect ratio on many models in the event that there is picture distortion due to screen size.

A few sets may have progressive scan technology as do some VCRs/DVD players. These sets create extra scan lines on 480i images and upscale them to 720i. This would be a menu setting if available and would only work in the conditions specified by the manufacturer.

Not receiving cable signal

If the video from your DVD player is good, it suggests that your problem is not the video board! Have you swapped the cable coming in with a "known" good one? Also, have you got your source selection set for DVD player still, and not CATV? That's all I can suggest with the info. available. Hope this helps!

Hi I have a l32wd12 r a TV and it will not turn on

If the clock is on then the unit is receiving power; maybe the external input feature (which tells the TV which outside source to display on the screen, e.g. cable TV, DVD player, VCR player, etc.) is not set to display the TV channels. On my Sony TV there is a button that displays TV setting options (e.g., Favorites, TV List, External inputs and settings). The external inputs function displays the options as video 1, video 2, etc., right up to video 6. My video 3 is for the VCR, video 4 is for the DVD, and video 5 is for the cable TV channels. If the TV is set for say video 3 and nothing is playing on the VCR, the screen will be dark (almost as though the TV is off). Your solution might be as simple as choosing the right external (video) input for the TV to receive the channel signals.

Dvd, sound, no picture

If your DVD is external, I'd check TVs input settings: if your DVD on "progressive scan" mode, it delivers video signal via "component" connections: green, blue, red plus 2 separate red/white for the sound. If you trying to use 3 wires: yellow, red, white( composite), good chance, that the only sound is delivered. Try to switch DVD off 'progressive", if you only have 3 wires. It will deliver "picture". Or, verso-visa: using "component", 5 wires, but DVD set off "progressive scan". I've seen that confusion many times! Unless you have 'built in" DVD player. no matter what, it's must be broken! Use external DVD player, instead! $30 and trip to the store, will solve your problem. Don't want to fix TV, if everything else is alright. Myself, I never liked those "combo" units. You got stuck with mediocre TV and lousy DVD player. Better: separate them!
Good luck,

My tv is set up with a HD dish network receiver. How do I set up a stand alone sony blu-ray dvd player. when i have tried i got good audio but the video was poor and very red.

Because this is HD to get the best picture possible, you'll need to connect the DVD player separately from the receiver. The easiest way to do this would be to connect an HDMI or component cable from the receiver directly to the TV. When you need to watch a DVD just cycle the inputs by pressing the input or source button on your TV.

Attempt three condition inspections. First, the TV should be set to acquire an connected external devices. Use the remote control settings to search and acquire signall conversion in this situation set the TV to communicate with DVD BLU player. Second, the connection between Blu disk player and TV should be checked for malallignments. Disconnect every device, observe qeenly, thereafer reestablish an approapiate setup. Once that was the situation, a new message should be acquired making way for the next sequence of experiences. Third, A compartibility should not exist between the blu disk player and T. However, attempt to connect the disk player to another TV to ascertain that the Blu disk player has incompartibilty features with some TVs. If that is that situation, the malcommuication is due to the type of connector cable that transfers signals between your new TV and new BLu disk player. Attempt all three features as diagnostics to the condition should producce desireable results. Consult with technitians expert for devices initial setup. Good luck

No Signal on DVD to Samsung 2333HD Monitor/TV

I had the same problem connecting the monitor to my Philips DVD player. After a couple days trying to determine if the monitor or cable was bad, I went to the Philips user manual and found that the Video Output setting had to be specifically changed to YPbPr/Component (which I needed). Apparently the player sends the signal in only one format at a time. Hope this helps.

No audio when watching TV but do have audio when watching a DVD

To start unplug the tv from main for one hour or so, this will drain power and reset setting to factory, solving the problem if this is caused by incorrect TV audio settings.

If you use an external receiver to watch the TV, then the problem is either the connection cable to the receiver or a bad signal (input) board.

If instead you have the problem when the unit is set to the internal TV tuner, then responsible for the fault can be a faulty tuner board, or a faulty signal board, as the audio board inside this TV process in the same way if signal is coming from built in tuner or external device.
