Unless your receiver has version 1.3b of HDMI, that's just one of many issues you can thank RIAA for. The recording industry is trying to keep anyone from recording. The worse news is that you cannot update the firmware in your receiver either. It involves hardware as well. Depending on the age and manufacturer of your receiver, you can call customer support and find out what they are doing to support their consumer base regarding this issue. If you own a Yamaha receiver and it's still under warranty, they will upgrade it at no charge. If it's out of warranty, your best bet is to run HDMI from source to source unswitched and use digital coaxial or optical for audio. If you have a newer TV it shouldnt be a big issue since most have 3 to 4 HDMI inputs. Otherwise, it is what it is and it stinks!!! But that is the current fix. Hope this helps. If you want more info on HDMI issues, google HDMI forums and you will find more info than you can read in a month.

On the specs for this tv, you might have to use an HDMI cable if your dvd or blu-ray supports it. Look for a small rectangular jack labled "HDMI" on the back of the DVD player. HDMI cables are about $10 stores. And you only need One. For both Audio and Video.

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.

My Blu-Ray DVD player is connected to the AV Receiver with HDMI cable.


You're not going to get any difference using an optical cable. In fact, your receiver cannot look at both jacks at once anyway. If you select an input, it only looks at one jack, it cannot take info from both.

Hi,
You are not alone...Sometimes HDMI connections fail to provide Audio on some equipment ...
You should carry Audio separately with a RCA cable..
OR without HDMI ,you can make the following connections:
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your DVD
** to "AUX input " or "DVD " OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection...
There you go..Both DVD sound and Video are on the
Receiver..

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Hi - Don't know about the switching LEDs but there is no reason to be using both the HDMI cable AND a digital coax cable to the V20.

You should have a single HDMI (carries video and 5.1 audio) cable from the DVD to the DVD input in the V20.

I wanted to connect hp dv 4 1275 laptop with sanyo tv with hdmi and 3 rca .but its not working .tried everything din work.


You MUST install HDM IDrivers for your Video Card & MotherBoard. You can only use HDMI, OR Component, but NOT BOTH. Sometimes HDMI, requires an AUDIO OUT Cable, this is the Red & White, AV Stereo input.
OR you use COMPOSITE which is YELLOW, Video, now AUDIO, is Red & White.
COMPONENT, you use, Red, Blue, Green, (ALL VIDEO) PLUS you need the Stereo AV AUDIO too, Red & White.
HDMI, should supply BOTH, but as related sometimes you need the Audio red & White AV, inputs & Outputs.
ALL Cables go color to color.

Make sure that the DVD player is connected into the correct inputs on the receiver and that the receiver also has the correct input selected to play. If your TV also has component video inputs it is best to connect the player directly to the TV. Otherwise, make sure you have the TV connected to the receiver via component video out.

if your DVD player supports a HDMI cable a single cable is enough for both audio and video channel.

but both your player and TV must support HDMI.
