Question about Flat Panel Televisions
We just received the above TV we need to know how to set it all up. The book they give you is not much help.
You may not necessarily have anything incorrectly set up, but there are a couple of things that I would suggest trying.
First, you'll want to make sure that your TV is set to the correct input source. Some TV's will require that the input source be changed in order to display any signals from an external device, like your HD-DVR. This can typically be done by accessing the main video menu using your remote control.
According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to change the input source for this model TV (Samsung LN46A750) by doing the following:
* Press the "Menu" button on your remote control
* Press the "Up" or "Down" arrow button to select "Input," then press "Enter"
* Press "Enter" to edit the "Source List"
* Highlight the signal source for the HD-DVR, and press "Enter"
Next, you may want to try updating the TV's firmware. In some instances, simply updating a TV's programming can eliminate any potential hardware or software conflicts between two devices. To update the TV's firmware you will need access to a computer and a USB flash drive. Step-by-step instructions and the firmware update itself are available through the following website:
Make sure to read all the warnings and disclaimers available though, as your TV may already have a more up-to-date firmware version than the one that can be obtained through Samsung's support page.
Should neither of these address the issue, you may wish to see if connecting your HD-DVR to a different HDMI input solves the problem. Much like computers, TV's have been occasionally known to have faulty inputs or loose internal connections.
If all else fails, I’d suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. In many cases manufacturers are able to provide over-the-phone troubleshooting support, in addition to having access to a wider variety of possible remedies for hardware problems.
Hope this helps you out.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

DO you have manuals for all the units listed?
If not , try the Samsung consumer site.
It would take me quite a while to figure out your situation even with manuals and I have a business to run besides.
Also, ask some questions of Tech Support at Samsung..Let them KNOW how much you spent on their stuff.

SOURCE: best way to connect new system
After trying several ways, we decided the best picture was to run the blue ray (out) directly to the TV (in) with an HDMI and another HDMI from the sat. box(out) to TV(in), then optical audio from TV (out) to receiver (in). This way you don't have to change channels on the reciever when switching from TV to DVD. Remember that HDMI is one cable that supports audio and video. If you are using all Samsung products and want to use one remote, using the Anynet feature, I think it has to be connected with an HDMI. I'm going to try connecting an HDMI too from the reciever to the TV to see if this feature will work. It does with the Blue Ray.

Make sure you set the laptop to display at a resolution the TV can display, it seems best to start with 1024x768 then work up.
If you are using a VGA - HDMI converter it is possible you will not get a picture.
You should be able to set the laptop to 1024 x 768, plug it into the TV, select PC input on the TV remote, and the picture should appear.
If not, then check you have the monitor output on the laptop switched on, test it with another monitor to be sure.
If all the above still fails to work, and you've checked the cable the TV has a fault.
I hope this helps.

What ever you get make sure they are 105c rating, AND LOW ESR which is must for switching power supply, if they do not know what ESR is, do not even buy the parts from them, also high ripple current rating and life rating in hour at 105c.
I use PANASONIC FM/FC series from DIGIKEY.
Please see my basic troubleshooting guide here:

Learn about bad caps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
Capacitors kit: http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/Default.aspx he can make you a set of caps.
Or www.digikey.com just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.
