The best connection the kawasaki dvd has is a Component connection. This connection separates the Red, Green and Blue colour signals. Your HD TV should have a component input, just look for Red, Green and Blue RCA inputs labelled "Pr", "Pb", and "Y". You don't need the red, green, and blue colored RCA's specifically for this type of connection. The colors are there to help make it easier to connect. You can use any coloured RCA as long as you have the Pr on the DVD connected to the Pr on the TV and likewise for the other two connections. In addition to these connections you will need two more RCA's (Red and White) for the audio signal. You will need to connect the audio output of the DVD, to the audio input corresponding to the same Component Video input you are using for Video. This should be fairly self explanatory when looking at the DVD's and TV's connections at the back.
Sure, the PS3 won't run at 1080p but 720p or 1080i will be fine use component video (Green, Red, Blue, + Red and White for audio, you should have 2 of these) for these they can support 720p or 1080i and should look great. Your dvd just connect with composite video (Yellow, red and White) it is really as good as you can get from a DVD anyway. Run monitor out audio (red and white) to the surround input on the DVD/Home theater system and you should be good.
The dish network reciever should have audio and video out on the back, If its a HD device it should also have COAX out (hd audio) get the cables for audio and feed the into a input on the back of your home theater system, there should be several inputs, usually labled like video 1 video 2, tape deck etc etc. the audio in are red and white or red and black usually, the coax connector is orange, and you only need one cable to hook that up. If you have HD audio on the dish network that will sound best in your home theatere system
If you have only connected red green and blue (component) plugs, you will have no audio as these 3 plugs are all for video and all are required or you will get a black and white picture.
You currently have 3 spare slots/sockets. You need to connect another RCA type audio cable (2 plugs - red and white) from the left and right audio out sockets on the DVD player to the left and right audio in sockets on the TV. Do not disconnect any of the red, green and blue plugs to use for the audio connection!
Red is normally right and white is left, but it doesn't matter which round you connect them as long as you connect right to right and left to left. The yellow socket is for composite video so make sure you don't connect either of the audio cables to this socket or you will get mono sound.
If you need any further assistance, please let me know.
This type of hook up is only for television viewing, to view the DVD you might consider purchasing some componet cables, they are color coded so hooking up is a snap, on the back of the DVD player you will see three RCA type connections Red/Green/Blue. componet cables are also these colors, connect one end of the cables to it coorsponding color on the back of your DVD and the other in the same color connectors labeled componet 1 input on the back of your television. You will also need a red and white RCA connector also for the audio as this is sound, a total of 5 connections will complete the hook up. Or you can go the simple route and use RCA type cables that come as yellow/red/white but for the best picture use componet cables this will allow you to watch your movies in HD.
Check the connections on your cables, you may have the composite and component cables mixed up. Use either JUST the yellow (composite) or JUST the component (Green/Red/Blue) and you should be good. Don't forget you still need the red/white for audio.
For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.
For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.
To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).
It sounds like you have the red,white rca cables hooked from the back of the tv to the red,white input on the stereo or the same connection from you hd sat box or hd cablebox. In order to get the same sound quality from tv service as you do on dvd is to run a fiber optic cable or digital coax audio cable from you hd sat box or hd cablebox to your stereo which means no red,white rca cables at all, take them out. Also once you do that you must be on a hd channel to get equal sound quality of a dvd movie. I know on some hd cable or hd sat boxes you have to go in and set them up to dolby digital as well after you hook it up the way I was explaining. Try this and I hope this is helpful.
