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:

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.

No owners manual can't get new blue ray dvd player to work on tv

Here is the manual:

When using the HDMI connections you may have to tell the DVD to output to that port.  Also you may have to connect additional sound cables from the DVD output to the TV.

I bought a new dvd player because the picture was blue and scrambled. The new one is doing the same thing. I am using component video cables. I tried new cables as well.

Try to move a bit the plug in your TV with your dvd and TV on, if the picture is changing, the connector in the TV need to be re-solded..
if not, some electronics component doing the video acquisition need to be replace..
How is the sound?

DVD Player not working

Go to menu. Select inputs. Assign input 1(or whatever input you connectedthe dvd to) as DVD. Then exit menu. Press the input key, scroll over to DVD. I reccomend using a component cable with a digital audio cable, if you do not have a DVD player that has an HDMI connection. You will find that a blu-ray player will be much more satisfying for the television you have. Basically by hooking up that old dvd player to that tv, is the same as hooking an 8-track to a $2,000.00 stereo. It will work, but the quality is going to suffer! Good luck, and believe me. It is worth the extra money to get a blu-ray player. It will play all your old dvd's and blu-rays. That way you are getting the full potential of your set.

Rca sound system hooked up to the tv the dvd pictures is black and white

I see three possible problemos:

1: You are using a composite connection and your tv is downright crappy at displaying a composite feed--I know mine is. Try upgrading to component if your tv supports it. If not use a s-video connection.

2: You are using an s-video connection and there is some connection problem, either in the DVD player, the cable connectors, the cable itself, or the s-video input on your tv. Upgrade to component if your tv supports it, otherwise try the cable and DVD player out on another tv to see if the tv is the problem, or use the cable on a different DVD player to see if the cable is the problem.

3: You are using component input only two of the cables are loose OR you are only using the green-colored cable. Either plug in all three component cables (red, green, blue) or try pressing the cables in while watching to see if that fixes it. You may need a better cable, some of them are crappy at staying in.

Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
