Composite consists of three wires, one for video, one left speaker output, and one right speaker output. Before long composite inputs will be phased out completely. The picture quality is about the same as connecting a cable box or sat receiver to the tv with regular coaxial cable.
Component is two steps above composite, the middle one being S-Video. Component is what most cable boxes use for HD boxes. It is almost the same quality as an HDMI cable. When using component, you have three cables for video, and two audio.
If your connections are composite or component, use component whenever possible. But if the choice is between component and HDMI, it depends on the device you are connecting. In this case, HDMI is always the best bet just because the cable is cheaper than component cables. The difference between HDMI and Component is almost unnoticeable, but for information's sake, there is a difference in quality. As for connecting the blu ray player to the internet, you will need a router if you plan on connecting it as well as a computer or other device. An ethernet cable connects from the modem to the router input, then another cable from output #1 to the blu ray player. It should then connect automatically
Hope this helps...

How do I hook up my blu ray to my floor model panasonic tv


You can use an HDMI cable if both your tv and Blu-ray player have that imput. That will give you the best picture and sound. Both video and audio are carried through the one cable. Next down in quality are Component cables. You may need to use these if your tv doesn't have an HDMI input. These 3 cables are red, blue and green. They will give you the picture but no sound. This is normal . All component cables need red and white composite cables for audio. When you have made your choice of HDMI or Component, click the input button on your tv remote and scroll down to either HDMI 2 or 3 or 4(if you used an HDMI cable) or choose "component" to allow the signal to come through. Make sure you at least have the blue-ray player on so that when you do see it on the screen, you'll know which input you chose to get it to come through. Remember, after watching your Blu-ray, remember to turn your input back to your cable setting so you can watch tv again

I'm getting sound from my sharp tv when hook uo to my blu-ray player


If I understand when the blu-ray player is connected to the set you get the TV sound or what? If properly connected by way of a set of rear audio/video or component jacks to the same on the TV--you should if change the TV input to that location see the blu-ray and hear sound it sends out.

Component, composite, or what is the hook up between the two units?

HOW TO CONNECT


You have 3 options coming out from the DVD player:

1) Composite (Yellow, White, Red)
2) S-Video (Round and Black)
3) Component (Red, Green, Blue)

Composite is the easiest, as both video and audio are taken care of through the 3 connectors.

S-Video has slightly higher quality, but is largely outdated and requires a separate audio cable.

Component has the best quality, but also requires a separate audio cable.

If you have a composite cable (it should have come with the DVD player), then just hook up the Yellow/White/Red cable from the back of the DVD player to the same color connectors on the back of your TV.

S-Video and Component connect in the same manner (respective color to respective color), but you'll need to determine whether your TV can support a separate audio input or not.

How to plug the blu-ray into the tv


It depends on the TV inputs. You will need to provide your own cables for most connections. If your TV has an HDMI in, get an HDMI M/M cable of an appropriate length. (Use an online shop for better prices.) This will provide the best picture. (If you have a sound system with HDMI ports, you may be able to go EDBC011 HDMI out to the sound systems HDMI in. Then the sound system HDMI out to the TV HDMI in.) If the TV has a DVI port, get an HDMI to DVI cable (again M/M). For this option, you will also need to connect the audio cable (see below in the composite or component video section).

Alternatively, this Blu-ray player has component and composite video out ports. Note: composite video is limited to SD. For these, you will have to connect the audio cables (RCA l/r audio or digital audio out). The composite video cable is included with the blu-ray player when new. For these, match the colors of the jacks to the wires to make sure that you have them correctly connected. You can put the audio cables to your sound system or your TV, as appropriate for your setup. For some TVs, you may need a RCA audio to 3.5 mm cable (all male ends) or adapter (for example RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M with an RCA audio cable or 3.5 mm F to RCA M/M with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) . This applies for units with only the PC audio in.

Make the connections with the TV and the video player off (turn off the audio system if you are including that set of wiring). Then turn on the TV and set it to the desired input (use the Input/Source button on your remote or TV). Turn on the audio system (if using one) and blu-ray player.

If you have problems, first try different cables. Try other input connections and try different devices. It's possible for either the TV or the blu-ray player input/output jacks or boards were damaged.

Hooked it up to a blue ray player, no cable at all, just the blue ray, and i get no sound from the tv, just a picture


Hi,
To connect the Blu-ray player to the TV, connect the Video OUT of the Blu-ray player to the VIDEO 1, VIDEO 3, VIDEO 4 port on the TV using the "RED/WHITE/YELLOW" Composite cable to get both audio and video. You may also connect the "Component OUT" port of the Blu-ray Player to the VIDEO 5 and VIDEO 6 port on the TV using the (Red/Blue/Green/Red/White) Component cable to get both audio and video from it. If you have any questions on connectivity, you may wish to reply with your query.
Thanks,
Pradeep

I have a HD TV with cable and a go video DVD/VHS player hooked up. I went to change the time and accidentally changed the setting on the DVD player from auto scan (I think) from off to on and now when I...


It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.

It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.

#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.

#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.

It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.

Best of luck.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.
