Re: 57H82-no picture from DVD input
Make sure that the DVD is the only component connected to that particular input. In otherwords, if you have the typical AV cable connected to video 1 and the S-video cable also connected to video 1, the AV setup will be the one that works.

Hi, Please few things... 1- Make sure audio and video wires are hooked correctly in AV input of tv and you selected that AV input in tv with its remote. 2- Also check your dvd has not been set on progressive mode if you hook dvd player through yellow-red-white wires with tv. 3- if dvd player is set on progressive mode, then hook it with tv by component video input, red-green-blue for video and red-white for audio. Hope this info will solve your problem. Thanks.
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.
Select AV-1 or some thing in TV and plug DVD recorder Video-Audio output in AV-1 input of TV, playback any DVD and confirm its picture and sound in TV. Press Stop button of DVD recorder to stop playback. Now plug Video-Audio output of VCR in DVD recorder input and select AV Input in DVD recorder, insert VHS tape in VCR and playback it and confirm you get VHS picture and sound in TV via DVD recorder. Hookup between TV, DVD recorder and VCR is completed. Playback VHS tape in VCR, Insert blank DVD disc in DVD recorder and press Record while you see VHS tape picture in TV. Hope this info will help you.
Go to menu. Select inputs. Assign input 1(or whatever input you connectedthe dvd to) as DVD. Then exit menu. Press the input key, scroll over to DVD. I reccomend using a component cable with a digital audio cable, if you do not have a DVD player that has an HDMI connection. You will find that a blu-ray player will be much more satisfying for the television you have. Basically by hooking up that old dvd player to that tv, is the same as hooking an 8-track to a $2,000.00 stereo. It will work, but the quality is going to suffer! Good luck, and believe me. It is worth the extra money to get a blu-ray player. It will play all your old dvd's and blu-rays. That way you are getting the full potential of your set.
It is likely that you don't have the right input to the television. First get a source that you know works. How about a DVD player. Get the cables from your DVD player (should be yellow RCA or "Phono" plug for the composite video out put.) Connect only the yellow video out put to your t.v. input and then press the av input button until you see the picture (note: besure that the DVD player is turned on and you have a dvd in it. We sometimes miss the very basics).
Once you get the picture than connect the audio cables, should be red and white to the corresponding colors. Do you have audio now?
If this test worked fine, it is likely that the solution to your other problem is that you have it on the wrong av input and need to press that button a few more times to find your satallite or cable input. There is a possibility that you are trying to use the tuner in your T.V. and it may be again as simple as choosing antenna input and that too needs to be hooked up to a good source.
