Hi evilfan,

If I may add to the postings of Ekse and TampaNative......

Depending on what available cables and connectors that you may have the basic idea is from the cable company in to your Motorola receiver then to your Samsung HT-X50 then to the Sony Wega as below image shows. All other additional devices such as another DVD player or an iPod Nano with Video Dock or anything else would have to be connected to the Samsung.

All external devices would have to be plug in the the different INPUTs as you may decide which is to which. What is important to remember is that everything goes through the Samsung be it incoming or outputs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Evilfan,
Your HT-X50 should have come with a patch cable with one red and one white RCA connector on each end, and your Verizon HD box or components connected in series with it up to the and possibly including the TV should have Audio Outs that match in color but would be female in comparison to the ends of the patch cable to pick up the audio signal that your new Home theater audio system needs to put out an audible signal through your speakers. So you need to patch audio from a source to your home theater receiver, and there are other ways/cables to connect to depending on what your specific devices support.
Let us know how it goes?

I think you should connect your home theater system into your Tv, or your cable box but im pretty sure you should connec it to your tv.

I dont have a manual here right now, i can get one later.

Basicly first you need to find out the available connection options. Consult all manuals you find and try to figure out how to do it. Or post here the available connections your tv has now.

Waiting for your reply.

    I had a look around, I supose the dvd player has a Scart connector, you should connect that into your tv, and possibly a few audiocables. the smartcable will enable you to watch movies and so on with the theater, but that might not give sound for tv channels.



    So after hooking up the scart connector you might need to connect a two or more audiocables. if available.



    Il know more after you tell me what kind of connectors your tv and the theater has.



    :)

    Jim please continue with TampaNative he clearly has more knowledge in this issue than I.



    Good luck, both of you.

Check the input selector on the TV, if you have audio only then it is a cable problem,
that means that cables are not connected in the right way.

Hi,

Due to certain limitations of the Panasonic DMR-EH75V, it can only accommodate composite Video INput and give composite Video OUTput as well as the standard Audio L/R. Additionally, if your Verizon FIOS HD cable box has an RF OUT, that can also be connected to the RF/CABLE IN of the Panasonic.

Please refer to the simplified diagram below.

I have hooked up my br to an onkyo home theater through hdmi. i now get an unusable signal on my flat screen. This also happens when I hook it up directly to the tv. What can I do to get this to work


hi,
The Blu-ray player outputs full HD VIDEO (1080p) through HDMI, if your tv is not a full HD one then you can't see the video. Do one thing connect the Blu-ray player to any full HD tv and go to it video setting. Down scale the video to 1080i. All HD ready tvs supports only resolution up to 1080i. only full HD tvs supports 1080p. Down scale the video to 1080i surely you will get video. Also check the version of HDMI cable you have used. It should be 1.2 or above.
ok

Hook up


Hi:
This type of hook up is only for television viewing, to view the DVD you might consider purchasing some componet cables, they are color coded so hooking up is a snap, on the back of the DVD player you will see three RCA type connections Red/Green/Blue. componet cables are also these colors, connect one end of the cables to it coorsponding color on the back of your DVD and the other in the same color connectors labeled componet 1 input on the back of your television. You will also need a red and white RCA connector also for the audio as this is sound, a total of 5 connections will complete the hook up. Or you can go the simple route and use RCA type cables that come as yellow/red/white but for the best picture use componet cables this will allow you to watch your movies in HD.

Hookup wrong? I can't get the menu to come up for the VR375


New HD tv. Have digital cable box connected to tv., cable box connected to DVD recorder, but can't get setup menu to come up on tv screen. I had a similar problem. I have a HD tv connected to a digital cable box. I hooked up the DVD recorder with the wires it came with, but it would not play or give me the menu. However it was correctly hooked up. So the next day I connected a HDMI wire from the DVD recorder to the tv and everything works now.

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD


1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.

Connecting and recording sony hdtv, rdr-hx780 recorder,sony dream system


I have the same system, except for the TV, I have a project (that part doesn't matter).

From your Sat. go straight to your AV receiver
Again from you Sat. (all of the AV outputs are all live), go out from either 1 or 2 and go to your recorder Line 1 in.
From you AV receiver go to your TV.

All you have to do is hit record and you will record whichever channel you are on. I am having difficulty getting it set up as a PVR, but will figure it out sooner or later.

Hope this helped.

Make sure the TV is set to output audio to the digital optical port. Then make sure you have selected the proper output mode on the home theatre. Unplug the optical cable from the back of the home theatre and see if the red laser is on (don't shine it in your eyes! :))
