    • An DVD Player




    Step1Make sure your amplifier and DVD player are turned off.

    Step2Plug one Audio cable into Front L and R in the Audio Out section of the DVD player. Connect the plugs at the other end into Front L and R on your amplifier.

    Step3Plug one Audio cable into Surround L and R in the Audio Out section of the DVD player. Connect the plugs at the other end into Surround L and R on your amplifier.

    Step4Plug the last Audio cable into Center and Subwoofer in the Audio Out section of the DVD player. Connect the plugs at the other end into Center and Subwoofer on your amplifier.

    Tips & Warnings

    • Make sure that all wires (including the power supply) are connected properly before turning on the DVD player.
    • Adjust volume levels of audio output devices to a low setting before turning the DVD player on to avoid damage to speakers or amplifiers. Adjust the volume after starting DVD playback.
    • Match the colors of the audio cables to the colors on the input jacks for the DVD player and the amplifier.
    • When you plug in the Audio cables be sure to match the L and R labels on the DVD player and the amplifier with the L and R plugs on the cords.
    • Set your DVD player in a dry, well-ventilated area that is not close to any heat sources or exposed to direct sunlight.
    • Never place containers full of liquid close to or on top of the DVD player

My Blu-Ray DVD player is connected to the AV Receiver with HDMI cable.


You're not going to get any difference using an optical cable. In fact, your receiver cannot look at both jacks at once anyway. If you select an input, it only looks at one jack, it cannot take info from both.

What you have to do is select the proper item on the receiver since that is what you have the dvd player connected to. Pressing bd/dvd on the receiver is not necessarily the right thing to do. All receivers have an input or source or function button that will enable you to choose the correct area where your device is connected. The way you have this hooked up may not be right but first things first. You will need to have a movie playing in the DVD player so that you see the numbers advancing. Go to each input/source/function on the receiver until you hear the DVD. Ok great! Now getting the picture is a little more tricky so please follow along carefully.

The cables going from the DVD player to the receiver: The cables should be connected to where it says OUT on the DVD player or hdmi out from the DVD player to one of the receivers INputs. Once that proper connection has been confirmed make sure the receiver is connected to the television for both video and audio. You must have a video cable as well as audio cables between the television and the receiver or an hdmi cable. If it is not connected to the television in this way that is the problem right there. In fact you probably have a cable going from the television's audio OUT going INto the receiver. In order to see your DVD player you will also need to connect the receiver's video OUT to the television's video IN.

You will need the television's remote to be able to change the source/input/video/aux on the television. You might be able to change it with the cable box remote by pressing tv and then input/source/video.


ALTERNATELY: You can connect the DVD player's Video OUT directly into the television's INput. The DVD player's Audio OUT cables would be connected directly to the receiver's IN.

Either way you will have to choose the correct input on the receiver as well as on the television itself.
Good luck!

I am wanting to connect my portable wharfdale dvd player to a tv. where can i get the right connection cable. thanks


Usually somewhere like radio Shack will have those cables, they are called AV, Audio Visual Cables, You need 3 Cables, with "Male Jacks" at both ends, usually Red & White, (The Audio), & Yellow, (Video). They connect color to color at each end, and on the TV you select "Aux", "Extern", but NOT a channel. If you have "Component Video, then you will need a set of 3 & 2 cables, (5 all together) Blue, Red, Green, ALL Video, & White & Red, Audio. you select the "Input" on the TV the same as for AV. So with AV, you use 3 cables, with Component, you use 5. If HDMI you need a single HDMI cable. cables.

If you are using HDMI cables for HD then you will need to connect this from your dvd player to you tv. Then connect your dvd player to you amp using either fiberoptic cable or co-axil (orange) this will transfer your dolby digital signal. Then connect other stuff like video / freeview etc to the yellow red and white on amp, you may need a scart to phono cable. Then connect monitor out from you amp to the yellow on your tv .This way when you select the source on the amp the picture will change also. If you search the web for vr-505 manual there are some sites offering it.

Make sure that the DVD player is connected into the correct inputs on the receiver and that the receiver also has the correct input selected to play. If your TV also has component video inputs it is best to connect the player directly to the TV. Otherwise, make sure you have the TV connected to the receiver via component video out.

Audio doesnt come thru my hdmi cable from the dvd player. And video doesnt go thru hdmi cable to projector. Have to run rca cables to both


Hi there
Check your DVD players' settings/manual to ensure the HDMI port is the default output port. Also confirm that both audio and video are enabled on that HDMI channel as it can be separated to be only video or only audio in a lot of cases.
Confirm you are at least getting video out from the DVD with a direct connection to your projector with the HDMI cable.
If video is making it to the projector direct from the DVD, you will need to confirm your amp is monitoring the HDMI input if there isn't a specific input selection for it. Connect your DVD to the amp and your amp to the projector and test again that you are still getting video AT LEAST. This will help narrow down which device is not playing the HDMI game if you still have issues at this point.
To sum up;
Confirm HDMI is the default output from the DVD for both audio and video.
Ensure you are getting video AT LEAST with a direct test to projector.
Confirm your amp is monitoring the HDMI input coming from the DVD.
Hope this helps.

Trying to connect sony dvd player to hdtv


You will need some cables first. It's really not that difficult once you know what each cable does.

Since you're only connecting from the DVD player to a receiver, this should be simple.

There are 4 solutions depending on what cables you have.

Composite - Yellow, Red, and White ended connectors.
S-Video - Black 4-pin connectors.
Component - Green, Blue, Red and sometimes extra Red, White for audio.
HDMI - heavy cable with a wide/flat connector.

Composite connection - Connect the yellow end to the yellow Video Out of the DVD player and to the DVD Video In on the receiver. Connect the Red audio connector to the Red Audio out of the DVD player, the White connector to the White Audio out of the DVD player, and then connect those to the Red and White Ins for DVD Audio on the Receiver.

S-Video Connection - This is the same as the Composite video connection, but connect the black 4-pin cable into the S-Video out of the DVD player and into the In for DVD on the back of the receiver instead of using the yellow video cable. The S-Video cable is a video only cable and uses the same audio cables (the red and white ended cables) for audio.

Component Connection - On the back of the DVD player, connect the 3 video cables that are Red to Red, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green. These will be labeled Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. Connect these video cables to the inputs of the receiver the same way Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. The audio connection is the same as composite and there should be a place on the DVD player that will tell you what audio is for Component. This is also the same on the back of the receiver.

HDMI Connection - This one is the easiest to connect as your audio and video are in the same cable. Plug in your HDMI cable in the back of the DVD player (there should only be one) and then to the HDMI connection for DVD on the back of the receiver.

Now...once you have your connections made, turn on your DVD player, set your receiver to DVD, and enjoy.

If your receiver does not have video inputs, you will need to run the video lines directly to your TV while the audio lines go to your receiver. This will mean you will need to set the receiver to DVD as well as change the channel of the TV to the input you have the DVD player plugged into.

I hope this helps.
