This confused me when I first got this tv. The inputs (HDMI, CVI, etc.) are more like channels. Go to channel 2 and the keep flipping down the channels. You will see HDMI just below channel 2.

Cable box is plugged into denon's hdm1, but I can't get a picture. Hdm1 out monitor (arc) is plugged to TV hdm1 in (arc).


Power up all components. Select the HDMI 1 input on the Denon amp, and the HDMI 1 input on the TV. Additionally, run the old analog cables between the cable box and the TV. If no picture, select the input on the TV that is associated with the analog input from the cable box. You should have a picture at this point - but it will be a standard definition type. Check the settings on the cable box to change the output from "A / V" to Digital on the HDMI jack - if present. You may have better luck unplugging power / replugging in the cable box first - or calling the cable company if you can't find settings for this. Once you have the output of the cable box to HDMI, select HDMI on the TV. If you still don't have it working - try bypassing the Denon and go directly into the TV from the cable box. Try it with BOTH HDMI cables. Also - try different inputs and out puts (HDMI 2, HDMI 3, etc.). Discard any HDMI cable that fails to show video and play audio.

How to connect a denon avr-e400 receiver to a televion


If the DENON has an HDMI output, and your TV has an HDMI input, then use a HDMI cable. Then, use the TV's remote-control to select "source" (or "input") as 'HDMI 2' or 'HDMI 3' (assuming that you have been using 'HDMI 1' to watch TV).

TVs need an input to display a picture. Some TVs have several inputs and you must select the one you are using. Example: my TV has four HDMI inputs on the back. If I connect my PC to one of the HDMI ports I must select that input in setup to display My HDMI ports are labeled HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, and HDMI 4.
If I connect my PC to HDMI 3, I must select in setting HDMI 3 as the input.

CONNECT PC TO TV


If you're TV has a vga or hdmi port then just hook them up with one of those. For vga make sure you select vga input in the tv's menu. For hdmi select the proper hdmi input in the tv input menu. You of course will need a vga cable or an hdmi cable and make sure the desktop has an hdmi port first if you go that route. If not you'll have to buy an hdmi addon card.

When i go to hook up a hdmi cable to my philips flat screen it wont recognize that i have a hdmi plugged into it. so what could that be the tv? the hdmi works with my other tv though


Hi,
This model has 4 HDMI inputs, do you get same problem in each HDMI input?
Did you checked HDMI input with any other video source like dvd player or PS3 etc instead of cable box?
Below are few helpful tips to connect HDMI input..
1. Ensure that your HDMI cable is certified.
2. Press SOURCE on the remote control to switch to another source and then switch back to the HDMI source.
3. Reset the accessory device and the TV.
• Turn on the TV
• Select the HDMI channel
• Turn on the accessory device
4. While the TV and the accessory device are powered on, unplug either end of the HDMI cable and then reinsert the cable.
Try above options and if tv still does not show picture of any video source through HDMI then it seems problem of HDMI processor located on main board, visual check is needed by qualified tech or call Philips if tv is under warranty.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

On your TV set remote are you selecting the proper input; for example when you have different devices connected to the back of your tv set, dvd player, vcr, cable box etc; you have to tell the tv which device you want to use by selecting the right one on your tv remove input selection.
