I own a AVR-687 and currently it's serving very will on my cable hookup. It's wired with HDMI to a VIZIO 50" flat screen with an optical connect from the DVR to the AVR-687. How do I hook up an APEX DVD player to the AVR and the TV?

    Where would each of the cables ends be plugged?

  • davidh_shea Dec 13, 2009

    The Apex DVD play is model AD-5131

    The Vizio is model VP504 FHDTV10A

    The Denon amp is AVR-687



    The Apex does not have a HDMI port, eventhough one is available on the Vizio.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, determine and postback the model number of the Vizio TV, the DVR and the Apex DVD player.

Offhand, but largely depending on the model of the DVD player and its features / available ports/jacks, it could be connected in a similar scheme as the DVR, by HDMI (if available) plus another optical cable to the Denon unit.

Alternately, should HDMI be not available on the DVD player nor a 2nd HDMI port on the Vizio, then next best choice would be component video (Y, Pb, Pr).

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

    The postback query of "...Where would each of the cables ends be plugged?..." could only be provided if:

    Appreciate your postback and additional information.


    On the previous query of "...Where would each of the cables ends be plugged?...", proposed connection scheme would be:


    • Y, Cr & Cb VIDEO OUT of the Apex AD5131 using component RCA to RCA cables (green, red & blue) to connect to COMPONENT Y, Pb/Cb & Pr/Cr of the Vizio VP504F;

    • AUDIO OUT L & R of the Apex AD5131 using RCA to RCA cables (white & red) to connect to COMPONENT L-AUDIO-R of the Vizio VP504F;

    • the Vizio must be set to COMPONENT using the INPUT button;

    • OPTICAL digital audio output of the Apex AD5131 using TOSLink (optical audio cable) to connect to OPT-1 or OPT-2 of the Denon AVR-687;

    • OPT-1 or OPT-2 would depend which one is currently being used by the DVR cable hookup.

Hi,
You can connect through head phones or get a 2 pieces of Y cable and split the signal and connect it that way.
Make sure you buy the right type of Y cable. Take your cable that you need to split to Radio Shack and they will assist you.

Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

There might be a setting on your cable box for audio output. Use the cable remote and look in the audio section of the settings menu and select HDMI output. Mine is under Audio Digital Output in the Audio/Video menu.

Your tv needs to have an HDMI out. If it has just connect that to the Denon. Tv might not have HDMI out so connect an optical cable from the tv's optical out to the Denon's optical in.

Red, Green and Blue cables together typically denotes a component video signal - an Analog, High Definition transportation for video. This cable does not carry audio, you need another cable to hook up audio between the DVR and receiver. You can use either an RCA stereo cable (red and white), optical-audio, HDMI, or a whole plethora of other audio cables. I would recommend optical or HDMI to get the most out of your system.

No picture with cable to denon AVR-589


Long and painful answer!!! However, in the end, you need to bypass HDMI thru your receiver and go direct to the TV. Connect Digital Coaxial or Optical for audio to your receiver. Your version of HDMI in your receiver is not compatable with today's HDMI version. Yours is 1.1a and the current version is 1.3b going to 1.4. If you want detailed info as to "why", just google "HDMI 1.1 problems" you can read for hours! Sorry for the bad news! However, it is what it is. Hope this helps. If you need further help with setup, post a comment and I can give you further help.

Hook up computer to tv


The Vizio GV47LF HDTV's connection bay has everything we'd expect. It includes a pair of HDMI inputs which can take 1080p sources (at 60 but not 24Hz), two component-video inputs, one A/V input with composite video and one with composite and S-Video, one RF input for cable for antenna connections, an optical digital audio output, and a VGA-style PC input for PC connections.
If you're connecting a computer, you'll probably be disappointed that the VGA input maxes out at 1,360x768 resolution (which did look pretty good) instead of the full 1,920x1,080. We did connect a PC via HDMI and got 1,920x1,080 resolution, but the image didn't look as sharp as the 1,360x768 version. Again, we believe this has to do with the lack of a dot-by-dot mode, although perhaps people playing with picture settings, either in the Vizio or in the video card's drivers, can achieve a better-looking higher-resolution computer image. All-in-all, shoppers looking for a big computer monitor would be better served by the Westinghouse LVM-47w1.

Hookup diagram for Yamaha avr-863 receiver


It's the other way around.

Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.

you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA

And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables

I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.
