Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have already addressed my problem in detail and the response was lame to say the least: Your TV is not compatable with the the newer DVD Players. If that were the case then the Sharp DVD player I have that was only hooked up for two months back in 2003 and worked but because It was not progressive scan I replaced it with the JVC. That Older 2003 DVD player is also not recognized by the TV I just tried it and the same results as the original Post as follows. I have a Mitsubishi HDMI Projection TV hooked up with a Seven Year Old JVC DVD player that plays all DVD's other then those released within the last several months. Netflix/Redhat tells me the DVD Player does not DEcode the newer disks. I purchased two brand new dvd players one a Magnavox, and a Sony Blue Ray. I hooked up Component Cables and Optical Audio. I then changed the Input on the TV to Comp. 1 and the TV does not Pick up on the DVD Player at all. I tried RCA,S-Video and still nothing. I returned both Players. Can anyone advise what the problem is. The real kicker is the TV recognizes the Older DVD play and will play all my older DVD's and it will not even recognize any other DVD Player.

"the TV recognizes the Older DVD play and will play all my older DVD's and it will not even recognize any other DVD Player" (sic) Just what format and what "Connection" do you use when connecting this"Old" one to the TV?
I mean there is nothing to "Pick Up" It is hard to believe that when connecting up, from say COMPONENT, YELLOW, Stereo Audio, Red & White, and selecting, the appropriate external channel you are unable to get either audio, or video? That is just too weired.
The Component of HDMI, inputs too, are very strange, to accept one input from a unit, and not from another, it doesn't seem possible, I wonder if you haven't been doing, or not doing something very basic, on both, and that;s the reason you did not succeed? It is very easy to get tangled up when setting these devices up, especially when unfamiliar, for the first time. Did. were, you, are you, able to test whatever you are wishing to hook up, to some other TV to actually see if the units are putting out a correct signal. It is best try COMPOSITE Video first, with the Red & White Audio, leads used too. Putting the TV on EXTERNAL Channel, if there is a signal, it MUST display, it cannot, differentiate between signals, it is just a 1 V p-p, AC Signal, that is amplified and fed on. I think you may need to sit down with your manuals and figure it out step by step, as there really is no way this should happen, especially on a TV set. That's effectively used as a Monitor, by the DVD units, and there is NO communication between them with say Composite, or Component, so.. It has to be a setting, on the TV or DVD or both.. or some other input setting not correct. I think you should try again, and use the manuals.

Have you try: NTSC on PAL TV On • NTSC discs will play correctly on PAL-only TVs.
Off Use if your TV is already NTSC-compatible.

Many recent PAL TVs are compatible with NTSC input and so this setting can be switched off. Check the operating
instructions that came with your TV. See also About NTSC on PAL TV on page 124 for related information.

It does not play the newer blu rays

Hello, A Blu-ray disc cannot be read on a regular DVD player unless it specifically says it can. The reason is the DVD player does not have a BLUE Laser assembly installed in it. Some newer blu-rays are backwards compatible and can read DVD's, but not the other way around! You will have to purchase a BLU-Ray disc player to see these newer discs.
Good Luck! Rich Lilja

Dvd/vcr without cable hook-up

If ** cable TV hookups exists, then the only inputs you can use are the line-in along with audio left/right. You've probably got a slew of output connections. Your unit does **t contain a tuner (which would allow you to use a cable input). You need to have a cable box or other device (vcr/tv) that has outputs compatible with the input of your dvd/vcr. A lot of dvd/vcrs are that way. It actually saves you some $$ since most cable boxes (especially HDTV compatible) already have the required outputs on them.

Recorded a DVD on computer but will not play on DVD player

dvd players play only certain kinds of discs and formats. Older ones played -R's, most newer ones play everything. You have to look in manual, or on box before you buy player. If it won't play -R,+R, -RW,and +RW's I pass it by. Find out if your player is limited to certain discs. Some will play VCD and some will not. Some will play DIVX and some will not etc. Stick to the discs and formats your particular player is compatible with.
