Compatibility Issue with HDMI Switch?

Hello, I appear to have some sort of compatibility problem with my DVD player (Samsung DVD-R135) and my HDMI Switch (Digiview 5 port HM501). My TV (a Sony LCD Projection Wega model KDF-60WF655) and the DVD player had been co-existing just fine, I was using the standard component hookup with them (I could not use the HDMI hookup as my satellite TV was using it and the TV has only one HDMI port). I purchased an Xbox 360 and in the interest of getting the most HD bang for my buck I went looking for an HDMI switch. Once the switch was in place the Xbox and the satellite worked fine but the DVD Player cut in and out almost as though there were a bad cable or connection. I have done the standard trouble shooting, i.e., replaced cables, swapped ports on the switch but no fix. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

All the best, Dan

Re: Compatibility Issue with HDMI Switch?

Anytime your talking about a switch your talking about a temporary connection. The issue with using a switch is that for HDMI you want best quality and you will not get that using a temporary connection. The unit may be recognizing a weaker signal and turning the port off. However since the output on that particular unit is 1080i you should be fine using composite, just get a nicer monster set.

Can I use a Samsung 3D blu ray player with a 3D Sharp TV

In theory it should work but there are some know compatibility problems with HDMI connections mainly on older equipment so it is usualy better to use equipment from the same manufacturer. Key points are to make sure you have the latest firmware update installed in your blu-ray player (& TV if you have the option to do it.). Second issue is to make sure you use a suitable HDMI cable. It must be at least a "High Speed" HDMI cable. Sometimes labeled HDMI 1.3 or 1.4. I use 1.4 version cables purchased online from Cables UK . Dont spend a fortune on expensive cables from currys/comet etc. they are a massive con.(digital signals dont need expensive cables).

There are no compatibility issues. In your BluRays HDMI audio settings set the audio out to PCM instead of bit stream.The TV cannot decode digital bit stream audio.

Pre-recorded dvds used before now will not load?

Since there are no firmware updates for this device, the lens is either dirty or defective. Unfortunately, the reviews for this product aren't very good.

Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Compatibility with Samsung LCD Display

It sounds like the HDMI port on the back of your Marantz is damaged. if you know for sure that the HDMI port works on another tv still you might just use component connection because the visible difference between component and HDMI is not very recognizable.

Samsung DVD-R135 / R136 - Will not load blank discs

Hello, First be sure your using the correct disc DVD+ or DVD- RW etc.

I would recomend using high quality discs as players/recorders are very picky about cheap media. Try using Imation name brand discs. They read well in most anything. If it has worked fine & then started having this problem I would first check to see if your using the same discs that have always worked with it & if so then you may want to open the unit & clean the laser lens with a cotton swab lightly soaked in rubbing alcohol. Especially if it has been smoked around or is in a dusty environment.
