Re: HDMI Input not recognized

With the power on, load a DVD and wait until it starts playing the movie. Press "Voutput" button - HDMI output (480, 720, 1080) will light upt and you should have video.

I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?

Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

Dvdr5520h DVD player HDMI connector problem

Hi S MArr
There are several input HDMI connectors and most often only one out put ---connector. Make sure you have connected your output HDMI to the TV/Projector and the DVD to one of the inputs and chose that input on your AV receiver ! Do not forget to turn on the DVD too. and give the Receiver and the TV some time to recognize and setup themselves to the signal.

Best of luck!

As well as HDMI cable, connect a scart lead too. You will get the connection to the recorder easily and then use sources list to scroll to the HDMI and it will work.

How do I connect the DVD player to a Panasonic High Def Plasma TV?

Choose connections on the Panasonic that match those on the player--

Do you have on the player Component outs(blue,green,red and 2 audio which are red and white? This ought to give you the best picture and sound.

Other inputs to the set must match the ones coming from the player--Most owner manuals have a lot of details here.

If the player has 1080 output hook to a similar input on the set.

Some advice here: make the connections between units with both turned off.

When connecting hdmi out from my panasonic blue-ray player to the dvd input in my yamaha rx-v365 there is not audio or video,why?

There are several video and audio inputs named DVD. For video you have HDMI, component and composite. For audio you have standard analog stereo and digital coaxial spdif input.
You need to configure the receiver to use the correct inputs - that means HDMI and coax. Also you need to connect the BD player via coax spdif cable to the receiver, because rx-v365 doesn't support audio via HDMI. If BD player has only optical output, use DTV/CABL HDMI input and DTv/CABL Optical input on the receiver.

I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....

Sound but no picture

Your player has several outputs and you might want to start with the basic Video Audo Left Right output first.

Set your with your plazma to see if you can change the input types to accept the video and audio input which will probably be labeled AV 1, AV 2 and so on.

My guess is that you have it set for Component Red Blue Green which his a high def (just before HTMI) and requires a separate audio cable. Your player, depending on the age of the unit, probably will not have Red Blue Green picture output.

Next if you have an HTMI output from your player hook that to your Plazma in the HDMI 1 position and select it on the TV's setting. Audio and Video are both carried in the HDMI cable.

Good luck, my name is Eric Kirkhuff

I have connected my DVD/VCR to my Samsung 32 inc television but I get no sound

I had a strange issue yesterday too.

Our Samsung DVD/VCr all in one combo did a similar thing.

I used the HDMI cable for the DVD into the TV input labeled HDMI/DVD. That worked okay.

But the VCR part didn't work.
At one point I got sound but no picture. Using the RCA cables in the back on another input "Component 1"

I was trying to squeeze the best picture out of the player using the S-VHS cable.

I thought it did picture only, but the Plasma seems to be more picky about input sources.

I got everything to work keeping the DVD as a separate HDMI to Plasma TV feed.
The VCR was 3 RCA's Yellow (picture) red and white for stereo sound.

I then reset (toggled through the inputs to "reset" the TV.

It finally worked but I was two days mulling it over.

See if this works for you.
My TV was a Panasonic Plasma, but shouldn't matter.
Skip the S-VHS line and connect the inoputs with the TV off.
You MAy need to go into the input of set up menu on the TV (ours had a wrench as an icon) and set the Component 1 or 2 to "VCR".
