I have picture but no sound when connected thru hdmi using a panasonic blue ray Dvd player. It is working fine with my 42 inches sharp lcd.

Be sure you are not trying to use 1080p/60 from your Blu-Ray player to your Toshiba. You should connect the player to the Sharp, then set the output to 1080i... then move it over to the Toshiba.

Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player

Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"

Had this happen on a Comcast box (Motorola DCT 6416 III)
Here's how to fix it:
Turn the cable box off, leave fully connected. Press Menu on the remote
The cable box internal menu will display (Not the Comcast one the Motorola one-- i.e. Display ratios-16:9 etc It's in black and white)
Use the arrows to cursor to the Closed Captioning and toggle to "Disabled" Press Manu again to exit and Voila!

Power the box on an have at it

I have just purchased a Toshiba Integrated Digital LCD TV and I can't seem to run my DVD and Video player through the TV. I'm probably not connecting it right, but don't know what else to try. Thanks for...

The DVD and video player have HDMI. Component, S-Video and RCA audio/video output connections that need to be connected to the appropriate inputs on your TV. You select the type of connector and cable to use.

HDMI provides the best quality, if available and works for both audio and video.

The TV's, DVD's and video player's manuals describe how in detail. Look at the connection instructions and diagrams. You then must select the correct input on the TV to play each source.

Hi guys, don't know if the previous post got through. Have a new LCD tv and DVDr, connected with a HDMI cable. when DVDr switched off analogue and digital picture is fine. as soon as dvd is switched on...

yes, hdmi will give you better results..
are you running hdmi to hdmi connection on tv from cable box?
if so, that is correct but as for the dvdr, what tv port are you connecting it to? i would use another hdmi cable for the dvd too for best picture resultif it's an option on your dvd.. you should have multiple input outlets on your lcd with 1-3 options for input devices via analog or hdmi.. so analog is not hdmi--hdmi is digital so it switches to the hdmi resolution when you turn it on..

let me know how it goes and if i was helpful involving resolution.. helpful feedback is appreciated.. thanks, d

your dvd player should be set to a different
