Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have an existing Foxtel set top box and an LG Plasma TV which has HDMI connection among other things. I have just purchased a Sony DVD recoder. I am having trouble with setup (must be a little electronically challenged). I would like to be able to watch normal TV and Foxtel without having the DVD turned on, but I would also like to be able to record TV and Foxtel when I need. Foxtel has RF in & RF out, connections for orange, yellow, red & white plugs, audio left & right, DVD has Aerial IN & OUT, line 2 out (R/Audio & L/Video), line 1 jack to connect euro AV adapter (this looks like a scart plug), HDMI out, digital out(coaxial) jack, line 2 jack to connect euro AV adapter (this looks like scart plug) TV has HDMI IN and OUT, AV IN with red, yellow & white connections, AV OUT with red, yellow & white connections and Component IN that has connections marked R, L, Pr, Pb & Y Cant work out the setup to do what I want. Can you help Michael

    I am sorry. I have mislead you.



    On the Foxtel box there is also two scart connections. One says VCR Scart and the other says TV Scart. What difference will this make.

The problem is with the Foxtel, it has just a single set of outputs so you will need to attach some RCA splitters on the yellow red and white connectors if you want to record from it.
You will need four cables: one HDMI , one RCA cable (YRW) and 2 with RCA (YRW) at one end and a SCART at the other  - make sure its a SCART IN plug.
Connect the HDMI form the OUT on the dvd to the IN on the tv, and one RCA cable from the AV OUT on the tv to one of the SCART IN on the dvd. Put the RCA splitters (one RCA father to 2 RCA mother) in the Foxtel RCA out and 2 cables in them - one cable will go to the AV IN on the tv, the other to the SCART IN on the dvd.

    In that case you will not need the splitter and instead of a RCA-SCART cable you will need a simple SCART cable - put it between the VCR scart on the Foxtel and one of the SCART plugs on the dvd .

I would like to connect my DVD player and Foxtel to me tcl smart tv but have no idea how it do it. Can somebody please help me.


depends on the output from Foxtel
is it antenna rf coaxial on foxtel ?
is it hdmi output on foxtel box ?
is it an AV RCA cable output on foxtel box ?
what does dvd player use for its output ?
Suggest you google these connection interface types and work out what is the output types
if rca then use av input on tv
is hdmi then use hdmi input on tv
then use select input source on tv to switch to whatever you used.

We have purchased a Samsung 55" Smart TV. We have it set up and working with Foxtel connected via the supplied fittings. How do we connect the DVD player?


The usual way is to connect it via a HDMI cable, for which the TV should have 2 or 3 input ports. You then select this HDMI as input on the TV to see a DVD playing.

Get a "high speed" HDMI cable. Some will say there is no difference between any HDMI cables, but they did see fit to increase the bandwidth in these cables for Blu-Ray DVDs.

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Hi Michelle,
Does the Foxtel have a slot in the back marked HDMI Out? If so, this is the best possible connection to the Bravia. However you would need to pick up the HDMI cable (like bestbuy) It is a video & sound all in one. Do the 6 cords end in RCA jacks, and are they color coded?

you may have to set the input value on the bravia for optical on the input from the cable box. sometimes there is more than one way for a particular input to receive an audio signal, you may have rca(red and white), a black or orange rca type for digital, and then the optical. i would suspect you have to tell the bravia how the sound is inputed into the bravia. also , just a thought.... on the cable box there should be a volume control on the front of the box........ make sure the cable box volume is ALL the way up (it is the preamp volume).

Sony Viao HDMI to Panasonic Plasma TV HDMI Input handshake


Try all of your HDMI inputs, one may be rated at the correct voltage to be able to display the video. The offical part that Panasonic was giving for this was PDPHDMIKIT, its basically a HDMI extender that regulates the voltage. The part is still available online, try partstore.com or andrews-electronics.

Lg plasma


there are 2 types of flicker, one is the lamps that drive the display and the second is the sync signal of the video.
I assume the video sync is the flicker you see,
I would try connecting a different way to make sure it is not the tv,
connect using the aux /rca connectors to cable box.
and or connect using the cable direct bypassing the cable box.
I have seen several complaints about the hdmi cable signal being incorrect in some way,
this is the same issue that the svideo connector had in its early adoption signal was too hot or too low.
another thing to watch out for is the low light sensor on the front of tv if it gets an incorrect reading it can flicker the back light though it should be slow in doing so.
some times the flicker you see is not flicker but ac running through the sides of the picture from an ungrounded cable source.
how does it perform if you play a dvd player , with and without the cable box connected.
