    I have the same problem when connecting my Panasonic bluray player (Panasonic DMP-BD35) via the Yamaha receiver to my Projectiondesign Action! Model 2 projector. The picture flickers, and the BR player returns HDMI trouble and the signal info in the recivere menu states "HDMI error." When I bypass the receiver, everything works fine.

I am not sure if you have gone into the Receivers Menu or not? If you have NOT! Then please try this: Go into the Receivers Menu (If you do not see the MENU on the TV you can hook up a Composite (Yellow) Cable from the Receivers Monitor Out (Yellow) and select the Input on the TV that you plug into) Look in the Menu for Inputs or In/Out Config. or Video Setup. Look for the Input that you are using for that Device. Change the Video setting to HDMI. I also recommend doing this for you Audio as well. Find the Audio Inputs and MATCH each Input to there DEVICE and CABLE (Connection) Being used. Also check in the Receiver Menu for UPSCALE or UPSCALER. Turn this on or off to see if your TV is Compatible! Hope This Helps! P.S. Check the Manual for Upscaling Capabilities NOT all Receivers upscale and route the SAME!

How do I hook-up a blue ray HDMI to my AKAI HDTV thru a digital cable box?


If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port on it then you'll not be able to use the player. Some players have hi def output jacks, but it isn't true HDMI so using a hi def cable would defeat the blu ray players resolution when viewing a blu ray disk.

Connecting my new samsung blu-ray player (bd-fm57c) to my toshiba theaterview tv.


I don't think that cord will work. HDMI carries video and audio signals, you might get video but probably no sound. You might as well try anyway though so here goes... The red green and blue plugs are your video and the other red plug and the white plug is for stereo sound. The yellow plug is just a lower quality video plug. So plug in the red blue and green plugs into the component video inputs on the TV then the red and white plugs into the audio inputs. DON'T plug in the yellow plug. If this doesn't work go to your local home theater store and ask for a receiver or switcher that will downscale high def HDMI to component video and stereo audio. You can probably pick up a cheap one for around $100. Good luck!

Is the harmon kardon avr 225 receiver hi def? we had a "non" hi def tv hooked to our receiver and we are replacing the tv with a hi def LED. do we need a new receiver?


It does not have any of the usual HDMI or component video jacks on the back. The highest 'def' video it supports is S-Video (standard def).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-Video

It is NOT necessary to route video through an audio device. Your TV is the ultimate and most logical first recipient of any high def video content.

Whatever video you elect to pass through this thing is not modified in a good way if at all. You COULD just run the HiDef video straight to the TV and not have to worry about what could be happening in the excessive and unnecessary cabling that takes it for a trip through the receiver.

The receiver can still be managed by running its composite (standard def) video from the Monitor Out to a composite input of your new TV.

Likewise, no digital audio would improve from passing it through any device that just acts as a stepping stone to the receiver and ultimately your ears. That iswhy all decent A/V gear has provisions to run the signals separately to their optimum electronic end-user.

Don't used the Blu Ray player on the tv HDMI out put hub.Used the connections for of the Blu Ray player connections by a S-Video cable for the video and the RCA component cable R,W for the connections for the audio out.The high Def.cable box will not work for high Def. this way,but the Blu Ray player will.

I am trying to hook up a Panasonic Blu Ray Player to my Toshiba flat screen TV. The red cable which is the audio cable doesn't seem to make the audio come out on the TV. I tried every single slot on...


They print manuals for these things.

Have you looked at them?

The specific products you're inquiring about are not showing in your post. Name the makes AND models first, then we'll look for the manuals. Then (maybe) find a solution. You might find it them the manufacturers' support sites or these guys...

retrevo.com
audio.manualsonline.com
hifiengine.com
usermanualguide.com
vinylengine.com
Google search: "(product) manual"

The standard color codes for analog audio are Red/White = Right / Left; Yellow = Composite Video.

Single coaxial or optical SPDIF cable = digital stereo or multichannel audio

Red/Green/Blue = Hi-Def component video

HDMI can carry multichannel digital audio and Hi-Def video from a source to a TV

Have a new blue ray with an lg hi def tv hooked up to a motorolla receiver only 1 hdmi port on tv how would i connect the blue ray


I am guessing your motorolla is a cable box, so I would just run component off that and use HDMI from the bluray, bc the picture that the motorolla boxes puts out is horrible anyway plus they have a lot of problems with HDCP. So just use component off that and it will save a lot of headaches

Is the hitachi 46W500 blue ray compatible


It doesn't have an HDMI port, only a DVI port. You'd have to get an HDMI-to-DVI cable to get a true "digital" signal on the screen, but you'd still have to do your audio with the RCA jacks because DVI is video only whereas HDMI is audio and video.

As far as Blu-ray compatible, yes and no. It's a high-def TV, so if you hook a Blu-Ray player up to it you'll be in good shape but the built-in DVD player will not read or play Blu-Ray movies.
