How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.

Things You'll Need:

* Component cables


Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.

Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.

Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.

Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.

Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.

Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.

Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.

Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.

Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.

Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

Tips & Warnings

You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.

Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

How do I record tv programmes

from the specs I have read online you cannot record with that dvd unit in this sound system it's just a player that plays a lot of different formats like dvd-r/w dvd+r/rw. so to record you need to get a dvr from your cable or sat company or get a seperate dvd recorder.

DVD drawer stuck out

Try to unplug the unit from its power source, give it a minute then plug it back in.If open appears on the window, hit the eject button. See if that will work for you. If that dont work, hit source and on at the same time, then eject if open appears in the window. That should close the draw for you.

Not really an option to modify cable.Connections inside subwoofer and main unit are difficult to work with.Common problems with dvd are laser/traverse deck failure and dvd tray ailgnment.You can run a seperate Dvd player by using the Tv or Tape audio input in the receiver and run the Video cable direct to TV.

Too many Cables??

Firstly, let me address audio cables. Optical audio is the same (essentially) as a coaxial digital audio cable, just in a different form. Since you just purchased a Bluray player, you'll see an HDMI out on the rear. This is a high definition video and audio cable rolled into one (however it looks like your receiver does not support this). I would recommend running an HDMI cable from the Bluray player right to the TV, then run an optical audio cable (or coaxial digital) from the TV to the receiver. This will give you the best picture on your TV, and the best available sound through your receiver.

Depending on your DVD player and Bluray player, you might want to consider using just the Bluray player for DVD's and Bluray discs. If your plasma supports 1080p (or really anything better than 480i), you would most likely get a better picture out of DVD's since the Bluray player will upconvert the video to the better signal (of course this depends on your exact model of Bluray player). This will help to eliminate some cabling also.

Other than that, you're not going to eliminate much more cabling. If you really want to get tricky with it, pick up some split loom wire management and wrap them up with that. Be sure to run the power and signal wires separately though! Best of luck, and hope this has helped.

Connecting TV

If your tv has line out jacks, run cables to the "play" jacks in the back of the 300. If your running satelite, run the sound cables to the player instead of the tv. If your running a vcr player seperate, you can run those sound cable to the back ot the 300. The video cable would go straight to the tv.

Hope this helps.
