HDMI&DVI ports already used on LG HDTV.I have X BOX 360 S,has a HDMI plug, can I use a HDMI splitter to plug in the X BOX in the DVI port ?receiving computer via HDMI now


You will not be able to split them, but they do make a HDMI Switcher, allowing you to use your Xbox 360 as number one and your PC as number 2, w you cannot mix both at the same time.

I have started setup for hd cable. Am connected to hdmi and have picture and sound but am unable to change channels. What do I need to do.


With the HDTV set for an HDMI Input that matches the HDMI Jack that you've connected to the cable HD STB (set-top-box or "converter"), use the cable STB remote to change channels on the STB - not the TV.

You can not change channels of the STB with your TV remote. You may however, be able to program your STB remote to operate your TV. Most will allow you to power the TV on / off; volume up / down / mute; change input (HDMI1 / HDMI2 / ANT / Composite / etc.) and even some of the more complex functions as well. Contact your cable company for more details.

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

I AM FROM INDIA I RECENTLY PURCHASED AN AIRTEL DTH HD VERSION, SINCE I HAVE A SAMSUNG LCD MONITOR (SYNCMASTER 2233sw) WHICH SUPPORTS FULL HD (1920X1080). MY MONITOR RUNS FULL HD WITH DVI CABLES OF...


Hi gurmeet,

What I suspected from your description of problem is that there is some kind of compatibility issue or content protection when you plug in an additional HDMI to DVI converter.

I am also using an Airtel HD connection, though however, I wouldn't need any kind of converter because I am directly connecting HDMI cable to my LCD and it works like a wonder. I set up my box output resolution to 1080i and there is no display resolution mismatch. Not even at other resolutions.

Airtel is using 1920x1080 resolution in signal transmission, so the possibility of 1079 from there end is ruled out, otherwise, the same problem would have been observed when direct HDMI cable is being used. I hope you understand my point.

Now you might also ask why you weren't able to see this problem when you connect the monitor to your PC graphics card. I would like to tell you that graphic cards are very versatile and does have the capability of 1:1 pixel mapping, so there you wouldn't see any such problem.

read this link for more http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdtodvico.html , where a person is able to match resolution using a similar converter.

I believe the converter you use isn't able to do 1:1 pixel mapping and is actually downgrading the resolution which your monitor is not able to support.

You can try out other resolution type from the STB and if you still see similar problems, then you may need to get an alternative converter.
Follow these steps to change the STB resolution type;
Enter the Menu from STB remote -> scroll to 'My Settings' -> Enter 'System Setup' -> 'HD Setup'. Here you change to a lower resolution and press ok from remote.

The picture on my TV is now a green screen


I had the same problem on my Sharp LC-32SB24U Liquid Crystal TV. When I couldn't find any solutions on this site, I looked elsewhere on the internet. I found two credible leads.

First, supposedly, this is a known problem that is caused by a known problem with Verizon FIOS. Apparently, there's a problem that Verizon knows about that has to do with the signal between the Set Top Box (STB) and the TV, via the HDMI cable. Other posters on other sites said that the problem is more common with the 7100 series STB's and that the problem is not as rampant on the 6400 series STB's. (Mine is a 7200 series STB.) I have not called Verizon yet, but other posters said that Verizon just says that you'll have to use a set of basic red, yellow, and white cables, versus and HDMI cable, until Verizon gets the bugs out of the system.

The other credible lead revolves around unplugging the TV for two minutes and then plugging it back in. Simple.

Here's what I did, and it worked!
I unplugged the STB and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then, when I plugged the STB back in and powered itself back up, my problem was solved! (Before I did this, I tried just unplugging my HDMI cable to rely solely on my basic connector cables, but that didn't do anything for me.)

Good luck all!

Tv turns on picture shows for 3 seconds then screen turns solid green. Sound is present even when screen is green.

It may be the top of set box.. Most times the sound and picture are auto detected by the set when HDMI is used. Both sound and video are carried in a HDMI cable but not with a S video cable. Try another HDMI cable *** dont buy the expensive one the tv don't care if they cost $125 or $25.

Samsung lcd ln46a550pf3 no sound from hdtv reciever


ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.
