My TV screen comes up blue when I'm connected to a device via the monolink/HDMI connection. I've tried two different sources, both an HD cable box and an upscaling DVD player, that produce the same result.
Have a similar problem as above except on the hdmi input or monolink I have one device DirectTv that works and 3 DVD players that just quit working through that hdmi port Mitsubishi does not want to send me firmware says that is not the problem. What horrible tech support. Actually all the devices were working just fine through a Denon receiver then just quit the Denon tech support has been the most helpful in this case.

Don't used the Blu Ray player on the tv HDMI out put hub.Used the connections for of the Blu Ray player connections by a S-Video cable for the video and the RCA component cable R,W for the connections for the audio out.The high Def.cable box will not work for high Def. this way,but the Blu Ray player will.
Does your TV work on VGA, it maybe worthwhile getting a HDMI---VGA lead and try that as it sounds like your TV isn't working, and you've tried the obvious. Do any other HDMI devices work on your TV, like DVD HD/SAT?
I would hope that you would use a HDMI cable to connect your cable box to your LCD TV - why not display the highest resolution to your screen that you can. HDMI will transmit the 1080P high def signal to your screen. These cables can be found at Wallmart and Target or even Best Buy. Don't need the most expensive and or a 6' length or short will work just fine. Then use your S-Video cable to connect your VCR/DVD to your LCD TV - This is not a High Def signal - only 480i if that. The P means Progressive or 1080 lines from top to bottom. the I means Interlaced to which means 240 lines once for field one then 240 lines for field two. You may want to think of a blue ray player to which upconverts your older DVD's to 4x3 High Def resolution. Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless, Blessings, A/V Media Tech Guy
Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.
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.
