Sharon,

S-Video (as you have found) is only standard definition, so you are not seeing any benefit of high def from the BD player.

If your screen has component input (red-green-blue) for video, use that input.

If not, then your screen is not capable of displaying HD signals.

Hope this helps

Can I use a blue ray with my tv?


Blu-ray players can be connected and used with any Television that has at least Composite video inputs. But the only way to access the high def is through either a HDMI connection or your Component Video connections. You DO need an HD compatible TV to see any benefits of Blu-ray. Check the back of your TV your RCA model should have 1 set of the Syncroscan HD component input jacks and be sure the Blu-ray player has the component out jacks since they are being phased out.

Just be aware of the following:

As of January 1 2011, all Blu-ray players that reach the market will be Image Constraint Token enabled as per the industry AACS Adopter agreement. What this means is that new Blu-ray players will only be able to output high definition content over HDMI. Film studios will be able to embed an Image Constraint Token on their Blu-ray discs restricting the Blu-ray player from outputting the image in HD over an analog output, such as component. Instead, images will be sent over component will be constrained to a maximum resolution of 540p.

The move is part of a strategy that is designed to move consumers to digital-only connectivity so that by 2013 all analog outputs on Blu-ray players will be phased out. Studios have not been permitted to embed this technology into Blu-ray discs prior to December 31 2010, so discs purchased prior to this date will not have their image constrained. However, users will now need to look for the Image Constraint Token on the packaging of Blu-ray discs released after January 1 2011, if they still rely on component out for their Blu-ray player.

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

How can you hook up a dvd blue player to play disc i can play regular disk but not blueray


?? Blu-ray needs a Blu-ray player. If you have a regular DVD connected now, you will need a Blu-ray player connected the same way, through Component cables or with HDMI if this model has that.

No picture from Blu-ray


If the TV works fine with other sources the problem is the HDMI output is not enabled on the BD player.
Most BD players do not output both HDMI and composite formats simultaneously. Check to make sure the HDMI output is selected on the BD player and the TV. This information is in the manuals, read the book.

I have a 51UWX20B TV. I want to get a Blu-Ray DVD


Yes there are a few options for you to make the link between your TV and the BluRay DVD player, first there are adapter cables made with HDMI plug on one end and DVI plug on the other end, remember that with this cable you will have to link the audio signal with another cable because DVI only passes video. Second if you cannot find the adapter cable in your area you also can use the component video(red,blue,green)instead of the other adapter cable,that is if your TV has component video ports, and again audio will have to be linked with another cable because component video only passes video signal. Good luck !

Hi I have a sony Bravia LCd which has one HDMI socket and that is linked to my sony home theatre , the problem I have is to link my Ps 3 via the the Sony home theatre, it has two inputs and I am connectibg...


What kind of discs r you using? Blu-ray players enforce on the wire encryption called HDCP. I got a call from a customer who was trying to use a cable box and ps3 hooking up to some splitter, then to a single HDMI on the tv. Turns out he was possibly breaking the handshake between the source and the television. Try a non copyrighted video, like a burned copy of a dvd or a home video. and see what happens.

Mitsubishi 55 in. 1080 series


If I remember correctly, this TV has a couple of constraints that will cramp your style:

1. It supports 480i, 480p and 1080i. NO 720P
2. It has component video inputs, but NO HDMI. (as you stated)

There is no easy solution here, because I've never found an upconverting DVD player that would upconvert anything past 480p using the analog component outputs...

So..

Perhaps you can find an Upconverting BLU-RAY disk player that may allow older DVDs to be upconverted to 1080i via the component outputs.

MOST Blu-Ray players allow 1080i output via the analog connections on Blu-Ray discs, so perhaps there is your solution.

Sony KF50we60 hdmi-dvi sound cuts when plugging into a ht-sf2300


DVI = HDMI without the audio connectors. So basically you need to connect your audio in some different way, PS3s allow you to keep your video signal as HDMI and change the Audio signal to component, so that is one way or doing it, not sure if the blue ray players allow you to do this though.
