This is not the best solution but since your DirecTV receiver doesn't do UHF/VHF and the only other input is in the front you will have to have it that way

Connect your H21 to your TV however you wish but I would use HDMI if I were you.

Connect either V1 or V2 and the L and R from the H21 to the front inputs on the VCR/DVD. Due to the lack of outputs on the H21 and the lack of inputs on the VCD/DVD that is all that is available.

Now connect the VCR/DVD (Yellow/Red/White) output on the JVC to the video in and matching L and R audio ins on the TV, this will allow you to watch VHS tapes and DVD over the analog connection.

Lastly, you want to connect the component video out on the DVD to the Y, Pb, and Pr inputs as well as the L and R audio out on the DVD side to the matching L and R audio in on the TV to get a better picture when watching DVDs and to enable widescreen DVDs.

Know what I will take a few minutes and will draw up a diagram that will hopefully make more sense than this. I should have it for you by the end of the day.

    Here you go:

    This is the best way to connect everything up. If you don't want to use HDMI for the DirectTV then you would have to sacrifice the component output from the DVD and go component from the DirecTV straight to the TV. In that case you would need to connect the coaxial digital audio out on the H21 to the coaxial in on the TV to get digital sound. Then I would use the S-Video out of the DVD to the TV, you would not need the second set of Audio L-R cables going from the DVD to the TV in that case. But you DVD picture quality would suffer greatly in this case. Connect everything up like I have on my diagram and you won't be disappointed.

    Actually I modified my original design to enable digital audio from the DVD to the TV, this way you are not sacrificing audio quality when watching a DVD.

    This is how you would connect everything if you wanted to skip HDMI. This method would greatly reduce DVD picture and sound quality.

Ghosting of picture from a Panasonic home cinema system

There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-

1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.

2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV

3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.

How to connect a humax foxsat-hd to a panasonic dmr 75eb recorder,to a panasonic th42px60b plasma tv,also will i get better result using component cable instead of scart lead. please can you...

You plug the humax into the panasonic dvd recorder and then from the outputs of the dvd recorder plug it into the panasonic plasma inputs

Is component video better than RGB? Well, yes and no, RGB provides the widest bandwidth and is the best choice for connecting audio visual devices like a Freeview box, digibox or Sky+ box to your TV, home cinema or home theatre system. DVD is however different, to reduce the amount of storage required DVDs are recorded using component video, it is therefore better to connect a DVD player via a component video cable to your TV, plasma or LCD TV etc.

Thanks if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask

From kimchan

Since the H21 does not have a coax out then I think you will need to go to the TV first and then to your DVD/VCR. In order for me to help you fully, when is the make/model of your TV. And for the sake of completion, if you have a AV receiver (home theatre or surround sound stereo) what is it's make and model. I will then be able to describe exactly how you should connect everything up. Thanks.
