Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, is there a cable box (receiver) used? If yes, please postback the brand & model number.

Offhand, best connection would be HDMI OUT of the Sony BDP-S360 to HDMI 2 of the LG 32LC2D.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

    Hi



    Thank you for your prompt reply. The LG has only one HDMI socket which works ok for Sky tv input but doesn't work when I change to the Sony blu-ray.

    Interesting that only a single HDMI. Must be a difference due to regional version.

    Was HDMI selected as the "Output Video Format" in the "Video Settings" while in HOME Menu? Alternately, temporarily connect an RCA to RCA from the BDP-S360's LINE OUT VIDEO to the LG's AV IN 1 or 2 VIDEO just for the Blu-ray's menu to be visible.

    Thanks Benimur I have made the connection RCA to AV2 via the scart socket on the tv. How can I get it to hand shake with the HDMI cable please.

    Please try on the Sony's remote while LG is set to AV2:


    • press HOME;

    • select "Setup" using < or >;

    • press UP / DOWN to select "Output Video Format";

    • press ENTER;

    • press UP / DOWN to select "HDMI";

    • on the LG's remote, set INPUT to HDMI;

    • back to the Sony's remote, press ENTER;

    • test screen should show on the LG;

    • if none, press RETURN on the Sony's remote & set LG back to AV2. Confirm resolution of Sony;

    • if yes, set LG back to AV2;

    • on Sony's remote, select "Finish";

    • press ENTER;

    • select OK;

    • press ENTER;

    • on the LG's remote, set INPUT to HDMI and test with a known to be good movie disc.
    Implementation of the above steps may vary depending on the regional version of the Sony BDP-S360.

    Hi



    Thank you again. I have tried a number of combinations without success. I will continue using the AV2 and will try the set up again over the week end.

How do I hook-up Netflix through a Sony Blu-Ray player and a LG television


If your Sony Blu-Ray player and LG TV are recent models, each should have an HDMI cable connection. HDMI is an method to connect your digital video and audio devices with just a single combined cable. In the case of your LG TV, using an HDMI cable will allow you to send the HD video signal to your TV's screen, and allow you to hear the sound through the TV's speakers.
Your LG TV may have multiple HDMI connectors, to allow other devices to send signals to your TV, such as a cable box or satellite box or digital video recorder (DVR). Your Sony Blu-Ray player will usually have just a single HDMI connector.
Purchase an HDMI cable from your local electronics store. There are different versions of the HDMI specification, and you should get a cable that you can verify is certified for the HDMI version 1.4 specification.
Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the Blu-Ray player, and the other end into one of the HDMI connectors on the TV, noting which one you selected.
When you turn on your Sony Blu-Ray and your LG TV, you should use the remote for the LG TV to select the input source. Your LG remote should allow you to select the HDMI input connector you used, at which point you should see the display of a DVD playing on the Blu-Ray player. If you cannot hear the sound, use the LG remote to increase the TV volume.

There are no compatibility issues. In your BluRays HDMI audio settings set the audio out to PCM instead of bit stream.The TV cannot decode digital bit stream audio.

Player turns on ok,display shows menu that disc is playing but tv says there is no signal, not seeing home screen with net flixs or the other apps.player has been working great we used it 2 day earlier...


The "handshake" between the television and the blu ray player has been lost. This happens a lot when connecting with hdmi. Sometimes a hot swap will work to remedy this. That is turning off and unplugging both your television and bluray player while removing the hdmi cable from both for 30 seconds to one minute. Reconnect the bluray player to the hdmi cable and then to the television. Plug them both back in and turn the television on first then the bluray player. Your television may need a factory reset going into the service menu or the board the hdmi ports are located on might need to be replaced if all of the hdmi ports are not responding. You can connect with component if possible in the meantime.

Won't play 1080p discs?


From this problem's description I have to assume that either the blu ray player will not play blu rays or the blu ray player will play blu rays but only in 1080i/720p or that you want to know if this blu ray player supports the 1080p resolution.

If the blu ray player is not playing blu rays then you update the firmware and try multiple purchased discs to make sure nothing is wrong with the ones you have been trying. If blu rays that played once will no longer play, then you will need to reset the blu ray player from its menu and possibly by holding down the power button on the front of the unit until the word reset displays on the unit before trying to play the disc again.

If the television is not showing 1080p make sure you are connected with an hdmi cable and that it is the right version hdmi cable for this blu ray player and for your television. Make sure you have chosen 1080p as the resolution to display in the blu ray player's menu. If all of that has been done and 1080p will still not display then it is a case of incompatibility between manufacturers--Sharp and whatever the television is. It would display in 1080p on a Sharp television and most likely on a Samsung and Sony as well. With other brands and even some models of the aforementioned brands (except for Sharp) its a toss up.

Black Bars on all blu ray movies


Hi icmjrtdr,

Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.

You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.

Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.

Hope this helps,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
