Question about Home Theater Systems

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!

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.

Can someone tell me how the picture is when playing a dvd to a hdry set. I heard it's not very good. Thanks John

Did you mean : playing a normal dvd on a HD tv? ....It will be fine. Check your dvd menu to see if it can upscale. If your using a huge tv you will notice some grain...but hopefully your not sat 2ft away!

Hooking up bose 321 to my tv

I am about to go through the same process. I have a Bose 321, and am on the verge of getting a HDTV. From what I can figure, the Bose can play a dvd and input it to the HDTV via video and audio output plugs off the back of the Bose to the audio/video input jacks on the back of the new HDTV. I think individual cables will have to be run for each. They usually are red or white, sometimes green or blue. I am sure everyone has seen these in their life. The Bose 321 technology only had what was called an S-Video cable output for the best picture, which is how my current tv gets it's Bose signal, but now HDMI seems to have superceded S-Video. Therein lies an obstacle to be overcome.

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.
