I need a firmware or software update to play a hddvd in my flatscreen/dvd combo. its an emerson 19inch flat screen model ld195em8

Sorry to say, but a firmware update will not reformat your DVD player into BluRay or HDDVD capabilities.
There is only one way to get your TV to display BluRay DVDs, that is to purchase a BluRay player and connect it to your TV with a HDMI cable, now this will also require your TV to have a HDMI port to connect to, and your TV must be able to display full
1080p resolution,with that said I don't know of a 19" TV that is full 1080p capable,especially not a combo unit.
Good luck !

No Picture on HDMI using Philips DVP5992.

You can try out by connecting the CVBS (Yello) out from player to TV and connect HDMI out from Player to TV. Goto CVBS input on Sony TV. Select set up and you should get the HDMI Video options availble. Try to change the resulution and check for Video on HDMI source.
Which disc you were playing PAL or NTSC? PAL should work for Europe.

Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

Post back the version for us.

Hope this helps.

We have a wharfedale dvdr24hdmi player recorder but the hddvd we have purchased will not play.A note inside the dvd disc suggests we consult yourselves for a firmware or software update.

The wharfedale dvdr24 is an upscaling dvd player and not a hd dvd player which is why it wont recognise the disc you are trying to play.

HDMI just means that it connects to your tv via an hdmi cable, so unfortunatley you'll need to buy a hd dvd player to play your disc.

Optical inputs

In short yes!

If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.

If i was you i would do the following:

1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.

That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.

However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.

But in short yes to your question.

hope this is not too confusing.

good luck

well your TV has a 1920 x 1080 Pixels hi resolution is this what you mean?

I would hook up your HDDVD via HDMI to the TV and the regular DVD to Component1 on the TV,

hope this helps
