Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I've got a Akai DVPS-760 DVD player that I can't figure out how to hook up to a TV with cable.The standard way to do this is the cable comes into the cable converter box, which hooks to the DVD player, which then hooks to the TV input. This DVD player doesn't seem to have any input connection ports - they're all out to the TV or to other components, no way to connect it to an input from the cable converter box or set top box. So I have concluded that this DVD player can't be used with a cable TV, only with a TV with an antenna which is what we were using before with it but we just got cable. Am I correct? Dd I need a new DVD player?

Hi, cant you connect the dvd player direct to the telly and also the cable direct to the telly then just select the input channel on the telly remote to choose witch input your watching.

How ever failing that you are correct in saying this dvd player has no inputs for cable the dvd player listed above is just a standard dvd player that connects strait to the telly, to be able to hook the cable up to the dvd player then your going to have to buy a cable compatable dvd player.

Can i just ask what type of lead are you using to connect the dvd player to the telly and also how are you connecting the cable to the telly ie is the telly cable tv that means you only need to plug the cable direct into the telly and then you change the channels using the telly remote or are you using a seperate cable box that you change the channels on the cable box remote.

Let me know ok

Dvd hookup


It sounds that you are connected the TV with DVD player Via AV cable. In this case, no RF channels won't go. You have to select its AV option. Check it. Refer the user manual for TV.

I hooked up the dvd but I get a picture but no sound


audio cables need to be hooked up as well not just a video cable.
usually red and white and clearly colored on the output side of the dvd player and the tv. input is on the tv output is on the dvd, also if you are using a fiber connection (optical sound) you will need a fiber cable from the dvd to the tv.

Progressive scan


Approach 1: Try unplugging the DVD player from the wall for an hour, then plug it back in. It may or may not reset to the factory default settings, which might put it back to "interlaced" output.

Approach 2: When a DVD player is switched to progressive scan, it uses outputs different from the coax cable "TV out" and the COMPOSITE outputs (often yellow, white and red RCA jacks. If you have the proper cables, you can connect them to both the DVD player and the TV, then cycle through the AKAI TV's "source" settings to switch the TV to the new cable input location.

For example, if the DVD player has "component" outputs (marked Y, Pb, and Pr) hook up RCA plug cables between those jacks and the AKAI TV's Y, Pb, and Pr jacks. Connect the Y to Y, the Pb to Pb, and the Pr to Pr, of course. The LCT3285TA has two sets of these jacks. Either will do, but note if you use YPbPr1 or YPbPr2. Once this is done, push the source button on the side of the TV (or on the TV's original remote) until it shows YPbPr1 or (...2 if that's what you connected). If the DVD player is on, you should now see the DVD menu or the picture from the DVD. Now you can use the DVD remote to switch back from progressive to interlaced video. The picture may go blank at this step.

Now push the TV's source button again until you see "3" or whatever channel you had been using in the upper left of the TV screen. You should see the DVD output picture (menu) again. Back to normal.

If your DVD player doesn't have YPbPr connections, it may have a HDMI or DVI jack.
The AKAI TV also has a HDMI input, you *could* get and HDMI cable (or DVI to HDMI cable if the DVD player doesn't have HDMI), hook it up, then cycle through the TV's source inputs until you see the HDMI in the upper left... in the manner I've just described.

Final Note: The progressive scan output of your DVD will actually give you a much better picture on your AKAI TV than its interlaced output. To take advantage of that, you'll have to hook up YPbPr or HDMI cables between player and TV and switch sources when you want to watch DVDs instead of TV programs. You may need additional cables to send the stereo audio output from the player to the TV for the progressive source hookup.

No Audio


The yellow, red & white terminals are composite out (old RCA connectors). Yellow is video. Red is right side audio out (line). White is left side audio out (line). You can connect them directly to any TV that accepts composite input. (i.e. Match the colors).
