You need to set the output format for HD to 1080i and the 4:3 override to 480i. See:

There is a user convergence that you can do - instructions in the operating manual typically right after the section on Magic Focus, or you can do a DCAM convergence:

My DVD is playing my videos in black and white .. It's a Panasonic tv model is tc-L32c5

follow the steps. God bless you
Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press "Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can damage your laser.

  • 2 Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of picture and sound.

  • 3 Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean connection.
  • 4 Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
  • 5 Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets, "Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose "Interlace" if given a choice.

    Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player

    Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

    Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

    If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

    To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

    Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

    Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

    Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

    Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

    Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

    Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

    How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

    Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.

    Things You'll Need:

    * Component cables


    Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.

    Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.

    Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

    Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.

    Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.

    Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

    Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.

    Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.

    Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.

    Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.

    Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.

    Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

    Tips & Warnings

    You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

    You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.

    Hope it helped.

    Have a nice day...

    We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?

    First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv

    Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.

    Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.

    To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.

    When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"

    When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."
