SOURCE: connection problem with HDMI cables on Denon AVR-589

Hi dmsgolfer22,

If your Time Warner Cable box is old enough that it has a DVI output it may have HDCP (copy protection issues) with the receiver. If you are having to use a DVI to HDMI adapter to connect to your receiver (output from Cable Box to input on Receiver) then it's very likely your cable box may have may not output the signal because it detects the HDMI repeater in the receiver.

The two best options to correct this are:
1. Connect the DVI to HDMI cable directly to the input on the TV, you lose the convenience of the video switching in the TV, but it will solve the problem. Then connect the digital audio output from your cable box to the receiver, although you've probably already done this.

2. Contact your cable provider and check into the possibility of them swapping out your cable box for a newer model that would have an HDMI output. This would be the best option since the HDMI output on the cable box would give you both the Digital Audio and Video through a single HDMI cable.

Let me know how it works out for your, or if you have any questions.

My Westinghouse TV was working just fine, but stopped turning on after I had issues with the cable box. Those are resolved, but I can't get it to turn on. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?


Patience may be the key--It may be substrate charge phenomenon--
Disconnect everything from the TV, including power cord and all ins & outs and wait awhile (3 days is sufficient) to let the internal charges bleed off. Reconnect TV and try it again. It sounds like a power surge (or lightning strike nearby) jammed a temporary "substrate charge" onto TV's circuitry.

How do i connect xfinity to my plasma display


If you're referring to your xfinity tv receiver (the cable box) there's a few different ways. Please keep in mind without much information, it's difficult to give a 100% direct answer.

There are four ways to connect it. We'll start with what will give you the best video quality, going to the worst.

HDMI cable: A single cable with a flat end. Your TV and receiver will have port labeled "HDMI". You plug it in, and then use your tv remote to set it to the HDMI channel. You may have source or input button on the remote. Press that, and a list of options will appear on your tv. Select HDMI. If there is more than one HDMI (as in HDMI1, HDMI2) try each one until you get a picture.

Component cable: A cable with 5 ends. They're color coded, so match up the colors. Then try that input our source button to select the COMPONENT option on your tv.

RCA cable: A cable with three ends. Color coded. Follow the same directions as above in regards to the correct "channel" to put it on.

Coax: A single cable, an end that screws in. Its connector will look like something can be screwed on it, with a hole in the middle for the pin to go into. Connect it, then tune your tv to channel 3 or 4.

The Xfinity Cable Service is also an Internet service provider then you need a cable modem with a built-in wireless router.
Check with Xfinity and if they are also an Internet Service provider then they can also supply this cable modem/wireless router.

How to eliminate error screen:"your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. please chose another tv input source."


"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"

Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

Connection problem with HDMI cables on Denon AVR-589


Hello,
I want to clairify you install, you sat you have I an HDMI cable running from the Time Warner Cable box to the AVR-589, going in to the TV/CBL input. From the Denon AVR-589, I have an HDMI cable running from the output to my Toshiba RV525U television.

Check the connection at the TV, if as you indicated above you have an HDMI cable from the HDMI out from the Denon to an HDMI output on the TV, if this is the case you need to have that HDMI cable plugged into an input on the TV not an output

Need help hooking up TV, BluRay, Home Theatre & cable box


I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.

So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
  1. HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
  2. Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
  3. BluRay Player to TV: HDMI cable
I hope this helps someone else.
