How to connect tv, direct tv box, and home theater together properly ?


Hi Vincent

That would be a heap of detail to go into. Time consuming...

Hopefully this quick pointer might help.

What is HDMI
High Definition MultiMedia Interface

Note the word MultiMedia
This Means....Both HD Video & Sound through the one cable.

HDMI is the latest state of the art connection.
Use this wherever possible. It's made for High Definition
More Convenient

Use a HDMI cable from one device to the other wherever both devices have that port type (connector).

You don't have to pay a premium ridiculous price for HDMI Cables as in the Monster type. Overpriced.
Well made regular brand & Gold pins are nice. Keep them Short.
Long Cables loose quality. 1 Meter is default.

Your LCD TV should have more than one HDMI port for inputting & outputting media (sound & video)

HDMI can be used for INPUT or OUTPUT
Eg OUT to an Amplifier or IN from a device like DVD Player.

On the OLDer equipment you will Have a YELLOW connector. That is used for the Video signal.
The RED is RIGHT AUDIO.
The WHITE is LEFT AUDIO.
Fiber OPTIC cables are a better way to transfer AUDIO than the red & white cables. Cleaner.
But this only works if the 2 devices have an optical port available.

Some New Amplifiers are smart and may require you to select the optical port in the settings instead of the default HDMI.
This may also apply to HDMI Port Choice.
Simply plug the HDMI in first & check.
Use a known source e.g. play a DVD or CD or Radio Reveiver as a signal.
ONE HDMI Port on the TV might be an OUTPUT ONLY channel (PORT) to an External Amplifier (if you wish to use one)

HDMI on external devices will be Outputing video & sound on their HDMI Port
To the INPUT HDMI PORTS on the TV.

Some TV's will fall back to a particular HDMI port on power fail or startup therefore not requiring you to use the remote every time.

External SPEAKERS should have the polarity checked. Eg Red (or marked wire) to the same post on either speaker. This makes sure that the speakers travel forward together at the same time. Pumping sound forward then retracting together....
so they are not fighting against each other.
.......This is called out of phase & distorts sound.

Hope this Helps

Enjoy Your New Entertainment

Connect with componet cables.


The only digital audio input for this TV will be via the HDMI input. Of course, even with HDMI in, you're only going to get a simple stereo output from the TV. You can use the analog L & R audio inputs for a very similar sound from the TV speakers.

The digital multi-channel audio (Dolby Digital, THX, 5.1, 7.1, etc) encoded in the program should be connected to a suitable multi-channel amplifier with either a TOSLINK (optical), RF (coaxial) or HDMI cable for theatre-like sound. This can be done by (a) cabling from the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) directly to a multi-channel amp and speakers, or (b) from the HDMI output of these devices (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) into one or both of the TV's HDMI inputs. This will provide only stereo sound output from the TV speakers. You should connect the TV's TOSLINK optical "Digital Output" jack with an optical cable to the amplifier's TOSLINK optical input jack to obtain theatre sound.

To listen to the program shown, you would select the amplifier input assciated with the optical, RF or HDMI input that is connected to the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) if connected directly. If the TV HDMI input(s) are used, they are output to the TV optical output and should be connected to the amplifier optical input. The amp input associated with the optical input should be selected to hear the program with theatre-like sound.

Popping noise through speaker when changing channel on sky hd


What make is your HD Box and TV? Assume you are connecting direct to your TV using HDMI, and not though an amp? If you do have an amp, you'll need an optical from HD box to amp to get DD 5.1, and connect your HD box to TV with the HDMI. Have you disconnected any scart connections from the HD box to TV - no longer required unless you really want to watch SD over the scart? Check that the Audio Output in the Sound settings for you HD box is set to Stereo.
Does your TV have individual audio and picture settings for the input source - perhaps you need to tweak these for the HDMI input being used. Do you have another HDMI cable you can use to eliminate a possible dud?

I am using my xbox 360 via HDMI, and I have a 5.1 surround sound system hooked up via RCA output from the tv. If I switch it onto the coax input it works, but when I switch to HDMI it doesnt. Is there a...


no, there's no firmware upgrade that you can do on the tv. the reason for that is because you are sending digital sound to the tv with hdmi from xbox 360,and when you have rca cables connecting your tv and surround sound, the rca cables provide stereo sound. what you need to do if you want to use hdmi is connect optical cable from tv orxbox 360/ or tv to your surround sound to get digital sound, and it will sound better digital sound.

External amplifier connection


I think, maybe the TV you have to have needs an audio out port. wether it's an optical out or an analog out. Provided that you have those ports...just connect it to your amp.

Analog RCA input to HDMI output?


You have said the correct thing HDMI is digital therefore Analog will not pass.
You might have RCA audio outputs on your cable box so either send them into the TV from cable or into the AMP then use AMP volume to listen to TV audio (select unused input and remember it is for TV) the key is to remember that cable box will drive the initial vol so raise or lower cable vol then use AMP vol to obtain desired volume.

Connections


Follow these; 1-Get an Xbox 360 HD cable (see the picture1 below) 2-Connect the red and white plugs to one of your amplifier's empty inputs. 3-Connect the VGA plug to the LCD directly By following these instructions you'll be able to get surround sound from your amplifier as long as you keep it turned on. 2nd solution could be that; (if you have some other equipments connected to the amplifier such as dvd, cd, etc.) 1-Get the above-mentioned HD Cable and get a VGA to S-Video adapter (a small piece of equipment) 2-Do the same thing as mentioned in the 2nd above 3-This time, you're gonna select a VIDEO INPUT (video1, video2,etc.) on your amplifier's input selector. Affix the VGA plug of your HD cable to the S-Video adapter, and connect it to an empty S-Video input slot at the back side of the amp. 4-Get a simple RCA cable or a digital coax cable (up to you) to make a connection between the "monitor out" slot of the amp. and the "video in" slot of the LCD. It's important that which video input you've selected in your amp. to make this connection. For instance, if you choose "VIDEO 1", you will have to connect all plugs (Audio and Video) via VIDEO 1 slots. Good luck
