How do I hook-up a blue ray HDMI to my AKAI HDTV thru a digital cable box?

I belive the tv is 55 inches and it's a flat screen. I would like to hook up the HDMI to the tv, but I'm not sure if I need different cables. I cannot locate a HDMI port to plug into.

If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port on it then you'll not be able to use the player. Some players have hi def output jacks, but it isn't true HDMI so using a hi def cable would defeat the blu ray players resolution when viewing a blu ray disk.

I can confirm that replacing these 4 capacitors worked perfectly. I work in construction so i am not a technician or anything. I did not even have a solder iron. I have photos of the board if anyone would like to see them. Took me about a hour to replace the 4. I had to use (2)35volt & (2)50volt cause radio shack only had 2 of each and it works like a charm. This TV has been in storage for 6 months until i found this article on the problem. Cant say thanks enough!!!!!!!!!!

Probably a handshake problem with the cable box. It is common for cable boxes to have HDMI handshake problems. Hook the box up using the component cables and you should be fine

I encountered the same thing using the HDMI interface on my new TWC cable box (Motorola DCX-3200). After a little bit of research, I finally fixed it by changing the digital audio mode in the cable box using this procedure:

1. Be sure the TV is on and connected to the cable box.
2. Using the cable box remote turn power OFF.
3. Immediately press the MENU key on the remote. The USER SETTINGS menu should appear on the TV screen.
4. Select the ADDITIONAL HDMI SETTINGS >>> menu item.
5. The ADDITIONAL HDMI SETTINGS menu will appear.
6. Scroll to the AUDIO OUTPUT item and select this.
7. Change the setting from AUTO to L-PCM.
8. Return to the main page
9. Using the remote, cycle power OFF.
10. When the cable box is turned on again, you should be good to go.

I realize these instructions are specific to the DCX-3200, but there may be a similar setup option available in your cable box as well.

The problem here is that the cable box is by default configured to use Dolby Digital audio, which requires an additional 10dB of headroom to deal with the boosted LFE channel. If the cable operator hasn't taken pains to set the system up correctly (and most haven't, apparently), the digital audio level sent on the HDMI interface will be approximately 11dB down from normal analog line levels on the HDTV channels. Changing to straight linear PCM sets the TV receiver audio level on the HDTV channels to match the levels on the non-HD channels.

The only problem with this fix is that if you intend to feed a Home Theater receiver that uses Dolby Digital processing with the cable box output you will lose the Dolby encoding feature and be forced into straight 2-channel stereo. For a simple installation like mine where I'm just feeding the TV, this fix works fine. If you have a more complex setup that takes advantage of Dolby Digital features (when it's available in program material), you may have to live with the problem.

For a technical reference on why this happens, see http://www.megahz.com/specimages/Dolby/LM100%20Cable%20App%20Note%2011-05.pdf

Hope this is useful.

Just bought a 55" Lg Led tv and i hook up hdmi from cable box to tv hdmi 1 and hdmi from my blue ray player to the tv hdmi 2, ok then i turn the input on both now hdmi 2 work but hdmi 1 has no signal why...


try connecting your blue ray player to HDMI 1.
A) If it works there, then you know the port on the TV is OK & the problem is with either your HDMI cable or your cable box.
B)If it still doesn't work then you may have a problem with the port on your MAIN PCB. if it's a new TV your warranty will cover that as long as the input connector is not physically broken.

I have a 55" LG


Easy solution; this is a very common problem. Connect Cable or satellite box / DVR directly to one of the TV HDMI inputs. Connect an optical audio cable from that box to receiver so sound is surround through your speakers. You cannot connect DVR directly to receiver because the anti pirating chip will shut off the picture and produce a green or no screen at all.
You can, however, connect a BD (Blu-Ray) player via HDMI cable directly to your receiver without that problem. Connect HDMI output from receiver to a second HDMI input on the LG.
Contact me if you need more help! All the best, John

I want to know what type of cable wire do you need to hook up for HDTV and where you hook it up at on the TV


HD can come from two types of cables. A RF cable, normally it is a RG 6 or maybe a RG 59 coax cable. A HDMI cable is the other method of obtaining HD on your HDTV. A HDMI cable has a rectangular shape with small pins, its about 1/2 inch wide by 1/8 inch in height. The RF connector is about 1/4 in circular. A HD signal can come from a cable box or it can come from a DVD or Blue Ray player. Google these type of cables and look on your TV for the connectors.

Is the TV connected via HDMI to a cable box? If so then if you have a cable box made by Scientific Atlanta you have to go into the settings and look the Digital Audio out settings. If it is set for Dolby Digital the HDMI will have no audio. You will need to put it in the HDMI mode to fix that issue.
