Have you changed any light bulbs in the area or added any other IR ( infrared) operated equipment ?
it sounds strange but it is possible that you are getting bad IR information generated by devices IE compact fluorescent or LED lamps also from the sun or other elecronics.
try turning off the lights and or blocking out the sun etc.
see if you remote and or TV stops giving you issues

SOURCE: While watching a DVD on

A wireless device never works continuously, it sends and receives the data in bursts / packets , and the HDMI will follow this pattern. In between them the system sits practically idle. If the time between the bursts is too long the device might think that the HDMI cable has been disconnected and switch to the next available connector - AV2.
Since this happens while you are using it correctly (the cables are firmly inserted) with a bandwidth demanding signal like DVD then your unit is defective and it should be replaced.
But, unless your tv is in a place where it's absolutely impossible to get a HDMI cable directly to the tv, you should just get rid of it and get your money back - a direct HDMI link will provide you with a better image and an easier setup: with this device you will not be able to add a home theater to your tv. In my opinion this is a $300 device that nobody really needs, it's just an unnecessary gimmick.

I can't get the tv to program the cable connection to watch cable


use a scart lead to connect your cable tv box. then on your tv remote press the "source" button or press the "AV" button, you mainly have the options to choose AV1 and AV2 (AV2 is only available if your tv has 2 scart sockets) make sure the box is on and select any AV channel, you should now have cable tv.

The S_Video connection has precedence (most likely named AV1) over the RCA/composite one (better image quality - usually named AV2) so it will be automatically selected. If you want to view thru AV2 input you will have to select it manually every time you want it.

How do you access the video mode in order to watch a movie on a dvd play or play a video game?


Hi, usually the function button on the remote control to select the input mode / source is a circle or a square with an arrow pointing into it (see below).


b74fea7.jpg Each time you press this, the next available source is selected in a set order, e.g. TV / AV1 / AV2 / HDMI / PC

If using a SCART interface for your DVD player, the TV should automatically switch to the DVD source when you activate the DVD player (take it out of standby).

At least a couple of possibilities, check the yellow video cable that runs from the VCR to the TV, is it plugged into the side of the combo unit that says vcr?

Is your TV on the right source? You could have plugged the audio into say AV2 and the video into AV1, causing a mismatch. Make sure the yellow, red, and white are all plugged into one input section on the TV (AV1, AV2, Video 1, Video 2, etc).

I was having the same problem. On my tv it was caused by a loose or faulty interface chip. I solved this on my television by opening the case and unplugging the circuit board at the top center where the menu and channel buttons are located. I've been running the tv for about a week and have had no more problems.
