Re: I have my dvd hooked up to component video to my dvd....
Is you DVD player a BLU-RAY, HD DVD or does it UP-SCALE regular DVDs into a High definition signal? You DVD player could have progressive scan but not UP-SCALE to HD signal. So if your DVD player does progressive scan only then 480p is the highest resoloution you will have. If it does UP-SCALE then you will need to change the output on the DVD player menu settings. Component out connections are required for progressive scan and can do up to 1080i. 1080p requires HDMI.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

selectable 720p/1080i output via HDMI digital interface (separate adapter available for TVs with DVI input) selectable progressive-scan mode for smoother video with HD-compatible TVs (via the component video output) optical and coaxial digital outputs for Dolby Digital/DTS /PCM

Are you trying to use HD? Component cables or HDMI? Component cables limit you to 720p. It's possible that your old TV doesn't support 720p or there is something wrong with the jacks. What sort of connections do you have?
lets start with the easiest first.does your tv in the menu option offer an input output source like 720p or 480p?on my set i can change to any format.maybe yours does too.let me know and we go from there.
Progressive scan video output would be available on Component Video terminals of dvd player so set connections between TV and dvd player via Component Video cable. Please intimate model and brand of product that you need instruction manual. Thanks.
It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.
It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.
#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.
#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.
It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.
You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!
Check for video out in the dvd setup menu, and set it for composite, It may be set for component.
another thing to try is setting the the progressive scan option off in the setup menu, you wont benefit from it, but at least it might work. if you already tried using the prog scan and your T.V isnt compatible, you'll need to reset. press stop to stop any playing disc, and press stop again holding it for 5 seconds to reset the system.
Well are you ready for this I hope you can under stand if not maybe I can draw a diagram. Starting with your stereo take the component video out and goto component on the back of your tv to component in then the stereo coaxial in to the digatl audio out on the DVD player then DVD player anntena out to TV anntena in then DVD anntena in to reciever anntena out and Sat cable to reciever. also s-video on Dvd componet to s-video on TV DVD player Audio out to Audio in on TV. Set Stereo to TV and DVD player to channal 3 or do auto scan and TV will work on 3 with the reciever and also TV works with Video 2 I hope this works for you good luck
