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.

My rca rear projection tv pt56950 picture goes in and out


I'm sorry that the picture on the TV goes in and out. Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Please make sure that the connections are secure and proper.
  • Try connecting a different video source like DVD player or VCR and check the operation. If it works with another device, the issue might be with the input device currently.
  • Also try connecting the device to a different port in the TV if no other devices are available.
  • If the issue persists, try with a different cable.
  • Perform a power resetting and check the operation. To perform the power resetting, unplug the TV from wall outlet for more than 2 minutes and then reconnect it.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications/additional help.

My dvd player is outputing a black and white picture both on its own screen and when connected to a tv.


Hello,

this has to do with picture compatibility between the TV and the DVD player.

To resolve this, check picture settings from your TV and change it to PAL or AUTO.

From DVD, change to NTSC or PAL. This could be gotten directly from the DVD remote.

All the best.

I recently purchased a KDL-40W5100 LCD Digital Color TV. I gives a great picture, but when I turn on my Panasonic DVD connected to it I get a blue snowy picture (it worked fine on the old TV)Can you help?


Hi,
This may be due to a setting on the dvd player itself. What kind of tv did you have previously? Also what kind of connection are you using to hook up the dvd player to the tv? Lastly, if you have the model number for the dvd player it will help if/when you need further assistance.
Thank you,
Lee

No owners manual can't get new blue ray dvd player to work on tv


Here is the manual:
http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/pdf/JVG%20HD52G56G.pdf

When using the HDMI connections you may have to tell the DVD to output to that port.  Also you may have to connect additional sound cables from the DVD output to the TV.

There are wavy colored lines an the screen all the


A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.

I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.

Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.

You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.

If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...

And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.
