That's an incompatibility issue between the blu ray player and the TV. I would check on the Proview website to see if there is a firmware update if its possible on your TV. If the TV doesn't have one or is not capable of updates then you will need to connect the blu ray to the TV via component cables. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks...

I have red,yellow& white come out my dvd and only white & red plug in on the back of my tv how do i make that work and which source and channel i put the tv on


Red and White are audio, yellow is video. On the back of the TV there should be a yellow jack if it takes external inputs. There are two ways to connect your Blu-ray Player to your amplifier. Via HDMI output: Connect the player's HDMI OUTPUT to the corresponding INPUT on your amplifier using an HDMI cable. If your amplifier has an HDMI OUTPUT, connect that to the HDMI INPUT on your TV using an HDMI cable. See if these links help.

How do I hook up my blu ray to my floor model panasonic tv


You can use an HDMI cable if both your tv and Blu-ray player have that imput. That will give you the best picture and sound. Both video and audio are carried through the one cable. Next down in quality are Component cables. You may need to use these if your tv doesn't have an HDMI input. These 3 cables are red, blue and green. They will give you the picture but no sound. This is normal . All component cables need red and white composite cables for audio. When you have made your choice of HDMI or Component, click the input button on your tv remote and scroll down to either HDMI 2 or 3 or 4(if you used an HDMI cable) or choose "component" to allow the signal to come through. Make sure you at least have the blue-ray player on so that when you do see it on the screen, you'll know which input you chose to get it to come through. Remember, after watching your Blu-ray, remember to turn your input back to your cable setting so you can watch tv again

Why wont my samsung dvd-vr357 play blu ray disks


Educated guess is you need a blu ray player. I have several very expensive Pioneer Elite DVD players and they cannot play blu ray. Blu ray is a multi level glorified DVD which you need at least a blu ray player to play in almost all cases.

You can play dvds on a blue ray but not the reverse in most cases. If you play a dvd on a blu ray player it kicks the video up to HD for the DVD.

Can not get my hd channels to work. other tv in house also with hd channels works fine. regular channels working but the hd chanels are not working. not sure what to adjust or why.


You can't change the resolution on the television itself. You change the resolution on whatever you have connected to the television. Let's say it's a cable box or a blu ray player you've got connected to the television. First off you have to connect it to the television with a component (green, blue, red, white, red) cable or an hdmi cable. Then you make sure it is only connected to the television with either a component cable or an hdmi cable. This may sound ridiculous but there are some people that have their cable boxes and blu ray players connected to their televisions three different ways ( an hdmi cable, a composite cable, and a component cable) when they only need to have it connected one way.
Select the proper input on the television. Set the cable box or blu ray player's resolution to 1080i or 1080p (in the case of the blu ray player if it the tv will allow it).

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.

You may have a defective HDMI cable. If you have a friend with a working cable you could test yours on their system.

Dvd is grainy picture


You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!

Letter box picture when viewing blue ray discs on Sony BR player


All blu-ray movies are in Widescreen format. So your tv converts the picture to make it look like letterbox. There will be some movies that will have those little black bars at the bottom. There will be some movies that don't. There is nothing to worry about it is normall. 

Hope this helps
