My TV is a Sharp-AQUOS Model # LC52D64U, I have 2 DVD players. SONY DVD player Model #DVP-S530D and MAGNAVOX VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER/DVD PLAYER MODEL#MWD2206. Thanks Barbara


Sorry about the delay Barbara, I was looking for your clarification comments on the other question page. I didn't realize that you posted this information here in a brand NEW question box. No problem though, this will work just fine too. I will post the information on both question pages so there is absolutely no confusion.

First of all here are the links to each of the USER'S MANUALS for your particular system components:

SHARP AQUOS TV - MODEL # LC52D64U:

SONY DVD PLAYER - MODEL # DVP-S530D:

MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER MODEL # MWD2206:


http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/c/cmwd2206_f7/cmwd2206_f7_dfu_aen.pdf




To view the Owner's Manuals with Operating Instructions for each device, just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and highlighted text just above. Each one of them will open a new web browser page for you automatically and allow you to view the information indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.


You did not mention exacly what model of DirecTV receiver you have, so first of all, I will just give you the generic instructions for connecting that device to your TV using an HDMI cable connection.




DIRECTV CONNECTION TO TV


Make sure your TV and DirecTV receiver are turned off before making any cable connections.
Now connect the COAX cable from the satellite antenna to the COAX IN jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
Now connect one end of an HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
Then connect the other end of that HDMI cable to the HDMI INPUT 5 jack on the back of your TV.
See page 10 of your TV's USER MANUAL for a detailed labelled diagram of the rear input connections on your TV.


Here also is a link to a short video which demonstrates this basic HDMI connection procedure:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7P-yayRJ6c&NR=1




If you want to test your system at this point, you can. Just plug in the power cords to the DirecTV receiver and your TV, then turn them both on.
In order to see the output from the DirecTV receiver, you will need to select the INPUT 5 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 5 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the DirecTV Receiver on your TV.
That completes the DIRECTV to TV connection portion of the system hook-up procedure.



SONY DVD PLAYER CONNECTION TO TV


Your Sony DVD player should have come with an S-VIDEO cable and set of RCA cables (yellow / red / white ) included.
Here is a link to a picture of an S-Video cable in case you need to see one:


http://amazingbestsellerstore.tk/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/31nOF2e5DXL.jpg





And here is a link to a picture of a set of 3 color RCA cables:


http://www.cameratron.co.za/images/productcables/cables/rca%20to%20rca.jpg




Connect one end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO OUT on the back of your SONY DVD player.
See page 8 of the SONY DVD Player manual.
Then connect the other end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO INPUT 2 terminal on the back of your TV.
Now take colored RCA cables and one end of the red and the white cables into the LINE OUT (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of you SONY DVD Player.
Then take the other ends of those cables and plug the red and white plugs into the INPUT 2 (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of your TV.
In order to see the output from the Sony DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 2 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 2 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the Sony DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc inserted.
This completes the SONY DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.


MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER TO TV CONNECTION

I will describe the connection procedure using the basic 3 color (yellow / red / white) cables which were included with the unit at purchase.
COMPONENT VIDEO cables are also a slightly higher quality option but would have to be purchased by you separately.
Take one end of the 3 color RCA cables and insert the colored plugs into the corresponding colored VIDEO OUT and AUDIO (L / R) OUT connections on the back of the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player.
YELLOW cable plugs into the VIDEO OUT connector.
RED and WHITE cables plug into the AUDIO (L / R) OUT connectors.
See page 7 of the MAGNAVOX manual, METHOD 1.
Now take the other ends of the 3 color RCA cables and plug them into the corresponding colored INPUT 1 connections on the back of your TV.
YELLOW cable plugs into the INPUT 1 - VIDEO IN connector.
RED and WHITE cables plug into the INPUT 1 - AUDIO (L / R) IN connectors.

In order to see the output from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 1 mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 1 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc or tape inserted and playing.
This completes the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.
Recording content on the VCR from an outside source will require additional connections which are described in detail on page 6 of the MAGNAVOX manual.

This completes the most basic hook up of your entire system using the cables which were supplied stock with each piece of equipment. As I stated, other options are available for purchase and the instructions for connecting these types of cables are all in the various OWNER'S MANUALS provided above.


Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Joe.

Hello I have just got a Sony PFM 42VIE television. How do I connect it via cables to be able to pick up tv broadcasts vis a panasonic dvd recorder with built in freeview. Thankyou.


Hi, The simplest way to connect the dvd recorder to television will be via the coaxial connections(the cables with the screw on ends)- ( on dvd recorder one will say in from ant./cable the other will say out to tv ) this should enable you to change your tv's channel with your dvd recorder which is what you're after I assume. The best connection will be with the dvd recorders HDMI output or component video out, keep in mind they may only work for dvd viewing and not with tv channels, also hdmi ouput has audio built in-with component video you will need to connect dvds L/R stereo output to the audio input for component video ( these connectors are marked red,green and blue.) the stereo input will be red and white.Thanks and I hope this was helpful, good luck Prodzilla

I can't get a signal between my Sony Blu-Ray Disc/DVD Player and Samsung HDTV monitor. They are connected via a HDMI cable. A brief message on the HDTV reads "Not supported".


First, try to reset resolution of HDMI Sony BD output.
Unplug HDMI cable from TV and change to Component connection to reset BD output resolution.
Than after you entered to resolution menu, choose to standart resolution 720 or 480 i.
If above methode working, try to reconect HDMI cable again to HD TV.
If any problem with picture or still "Not Supported" messege appear, i suggest to change HDMI cable first.
i hope its work.

The easiest way is to connect your recorder directly to your incoming cable, then connect the output of your recorder to the TV set.

Leave your set on the input you have selected, and use your recorder to change channels.

Use an HDMI cable from my LG DVB-T HDD/DVD recorder


A quick google search of that model number turns up that tv doesn't have an HDMI port. Your next option would just use component cables instead. At 26 inches you will never notice the difference.

No sound on pc connection


HDMI outputs from devices such as DVD players do carry both video and audio, but the HDMI output from your computer video card only carries video. You'll need to connect a cable from the computer sound output to the TV as well.

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...


The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.
