Re: help don't know what to do

Your laptop screen has to be set to 1024 x 768 60 hz refresh.
this is the settings I have on all my hi def screens
just right click on the windows desktop / properties/ settings /advanced/ monitor set to 60 hz
hit ok to accept
hit ok to get back to display settings and set to 1024x768
now try it.

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.

We want to hook laptop to tv and here is the number lc-26sh20q

Hi Donna.
Do you have an HDMI plug on your lap top?
If so, then buy one and connect it to your pc and tv. Change the tv's input so it is on HDMI and change the laptops display settings to projector.
(If it's windows 7) or another display setting that will display on both your TV and your lap top screens.

Hope that helps. Let me know..

Trying to hook up laptop to tv

It can be done but without knowing what type of PC you have I won't be able to give u the best way to do it. If your PC has an S-video output, you can simply connect the cable between the two. You will also have to connect audio cables from the mic. output on your PC using a Y type RCA to mic jack that will allow you to plug into the audio inputs of the T.V. hope that helps ya. You can go Hi-Def if your PC supports such outputs.

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

Speaker distortion on SHARP 37" Aquos Hi Def

When you are changing channels you are using the tuner of the sat reeiver. the tv does not know you are changing a channel . It is just receiving a constant signal from the SAT receiver. I would suspect a problem with the receiver. Try another one first .

I was given this tv I need to connect cable

your t.v will hook up directly to cable. if you are asking how to hook to a digital box then you can hook it up the same as you had it hooked on your previous t.v. but if you want to get high def channels then you are going to have to take your digital box back to Time Warner and swap it for a high def digital box. or you can just call Time Warner and have a technician go to your house and swap/ hook things up for you. Hope this helps you.

TV / DVD Recorder HDMI issue

By default most HDMI DVD players are set to produce their picture output on the Scart connection. This allows configuration of the device on all TVs.

However your manual should tell you (Probably in techno speak) what you need to do so switch it to HDMI mode.

I don;t have a copy but I am searching for it on the net. If I find out how I will let you know.
