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.

Hook up new blueray thru old home theater system


Yes you can. If you have more than 1 HDMI sources and your old system only has 1 HDMI in, you may want to invest in an HDMI switch. They are inexpensive (under $20 on Amazon) and let you choose 4 HDMI sources to feed your system. The audio is embedded in HDMI and you may have to select the choices (surround versus stereo) when you play the disc.

I want to hook up my bose 321gsx system to my hdtv and a blue ray dvd player and be able to have suround sound out of the one im listening to, Do i have to hook up my old vcr also ?


No, flushing anything hi-def through a VCR is counter-prooductive and could lose the definition you paid for.

but some assumptions are necessary because you don't provide the details regarding the audio capabilities of your HDTV and BluRay player.

How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


Things You'll Need:

* Component cables

Instructions


Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

Tips & Warnings

You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

How can I hook my alternate DvD player to SA-HT700 subwoofer without a cable ?


Without a cable? You probably can't unless wireless DVD is out.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Panasonic-SA-HT700-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/312bh731/t/2/

If you want to use a wired DVD player, you would have to settle for just audio (analog stereo or optical digital) from it since this unit doesn't accept any video IN.

Rf modulator hook to Dvd and HDtv but no sound coming through the dvd surround home theater player. What should I do to make it work through the DVD player?


Check to see if your audio cable RCA (red and White) wires are connected to the correct inputs. A good rule of thumb is: If the cables says out it has to go in. If it says in it has to go out. Also check your settings on your HDTV in the menu audio section or channel selection.

Hooking up audio video to cable box with home theatre


From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.

That should work.

Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.
