Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Connection of HD TV Issues

I have a new Samsung 5076 DLP HDTV, a Motorola DCT6200 High Def Cable Reciever and a Bose 3-2-1 Series II Home Theater-DVD. How do I connect this so I get high definition?
I am using Y Pb Pr Component connections. I get a 480i picture on the screen. It will not show a 1080 signal.
What cables do I need to purchase to be able to get maximum audio and video from this system? And how do I hook it up? DUH, you have a real novice here on this one!

    I have tried setting the Motorola box to 1080 and get a blank screen. That is why I contacted you to see what I had done wrong. Should I go from the Y Pb Pr component cables which should work to the DVI HDMI interface? Or will that make any difference?

No video at all!

I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues, including HDCP (High Def Copy Protection) through HDMI issue. Component cabling should eliminate this problem.

I hope that helps.

Check the input selector on the TV, if you have audio only then it is a cable problem,
that means that cables are not connected in the right way.

In most cases you will not be able to see a great difference between HDMI and Component connections. As far as not seeing a difference between HD and SD signals from your cable box, go into the settings of it and see what resolution it is putting out. If you have a Motorola cable box, with it off and the TV on press the menu button and the setup screen will appear. That will tell you the output resolution as well as what the 4:3 override is set to. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks....

Motorola DCT 6200/1000 seems to only have one audio output?

There are three options:

1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo

2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.

3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.

Hooking up home theater

Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
