Usually the tv will switch automatically to the correct reception mode as soon as it detects an input into the scart socket.
I have and have had a number of tv sets and they all do this, though I do remember many years ago needing to select the AV channel. I believe these days the AV channel is for the other audio/video input sockets.
I suggest you connect your dvd player to the tv, switch on the tv and then press "play" on the dvd.
You should be able to enjoy viewing without further effort.
If you change channel on the tv to check what is on, the dvd reception will be lost. To save the trouble of disconnecting the scart lead and reconnecting I use a manual scart distribution box so simply pressing the button provides the required interruption so dvd viewing can be resumed.
Hi.I assume you can watch some channels, using your indoor digital antenna. As far as I know, you need an intermediate "box", or interface between the cable TV coming in, and the decoder. This has to be installed by the cable company. Between the decoder and the interface, there are two connections. One signal connection and one UTP wire connection for communication between both units.At least, that's how it works in Belgium and most other countries.
Hi there. Connect the player by means of a SCART cable.
When you activate the DVD, the TV recognises this and goes automatically into AV mode. About the scart cable: take a fully wired type. Then pin 8 is at least connected. This status pin makes the TV switch to AV mode. (toggles between 0 and 12V)
In some cases, it's only possible to connect the signals by means of RCA connectors. (red,black, yellow). Then it's more complicated.
You have to use the local "channel" buttons on your TV. Press the (-) button a number of times until you reach channels below 1. That's were AV inputs are active. Good luck.
