Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 40 in. LCD HDTV

Can't remove AV Input display

I have a Sony KDL-40D3000 and a Sony RDR-HXD870. They are connected via HDMI. When watching TV from the DVD Recorder there is an on-screen display (top left) showing "AV7 input player 1 HDD/DVD". I believe that I have been through all menus and tried all settings on the recorder and the TV that could possible turn this off.
Could anyone please offer advice to get rid of this!
Thanks
Gary

Hello rpgscope,
I am assuming both your dvd recorder and cable is plugged into your tv? Conncet a composite cable (rca cable or aka red, white, and yellow cable) from cable box OUT to dvd recorder IN. That should fix the problem. I mention composite cable but if you another slot for av then go ahead and use that. Make sure you have AV connected from dvd recorder OUT to the tv IN. Also the cable box should be HDMI OUT to tv IN. If you have it connected like this, it should work. Hope this helps.

Hello I have just got a Sony PFM 42VIE television. How do I connect it via cables to be able to pick up tv broadcasts vis a panasonic dvd recorder with built in freeview. Thankyou.


Hi, The simplest way to connect the dvd recorder to television will be via the coaxial connections(the cables with the screw on ends)- ( on dvd recorder one will say in from ant./cable the other will say out to tv ) this should enable you to change your tv's channel with your dvd recorder which is what you're after I assume. The best connection will be with the dvd recorders HDMI output or component video out, keep in mind they may only work for dvd viewing and not with tv channels, also hdmi ouput has audio built in-with component video you will need to connect dvds L/R stereo output to the audio input for component video ( these connectors are marked red,green and blue.) the stereo input will be red and white.Thanks and I hope this was helpful, good luck Prodzilla

Try this: got to www.sony.com mouse over "support" then click on "drivers/software" enter your model #(s) and then you can check for firmware updates, the symptoms that you list, unfortunently are somewhat common when connected via HDMI cables.
Check for updates on both product that you list.
Good luck !

HDMI-connection from my computer stoped working


HDMI is a very buggy system, espicially with connecting computers. First off I would check the video output settings of your computer to ensure that HDMI is still active and that it is enabled for mirror monitor or double monitor.

First things first unplug and re-plug at every point. Power cycle the TV and the computer. If that doesnt work then remove the cable, power cycle both devices then re-plug...then move onto the next step.

If you are running windows XP or Vista, right click on the desktop, select "personalize" or "properties" then look at the display settings. There you can adjust the resolution, HDMI has some bandwidth issues with long cables and cheap cables. Try dropping the resolution of the HDMI output if you can't get a stable image.

If that doesn't help you may have to go into the settings of the graphics card, commonly refered to as "Advanced Settings" on XP.

If it still doesn't help get another HDMI source and test the TV, then get another display and test the computer.

Cheers,

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...


The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.
