I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?


Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

I have a beko 37 inch hd ready tv i recently go the sky hd box . my tv only has one hdmi port and i also have a samsung blu ray dvd player which only has a hdmi connection i got a switcher box for the hdmi...


It is possible the hdmi cable that you are using is faulty. The reason I say this is because you have multiple signals that pass through a hdmi cable (19 pins in it means 19 wires to carry signals). The more the cable gets moved and bent, you increase the chances of creating a short or re-connecting a short if moved from one tv to another. This is the best case scenario as it is easier to replace the cable and less costly. Since you already connected the the dvd directly to the tv, and I am presuming that you have working devices running through the switch and you can eliminate that as the problem. If you do not have working devices on your switch or directly into your tv, and you have tried multiple hdmi cable and still nothing, the hdmi connector on your tv is probably bad and that would be the worse case scenario.

Amp freezes when tv channel is changed


Are you using the HDMI for video AND audio or just video? Are you using the reciever as the video switcher by routing your devices into the amp and then from the out of the amp to the TV and then back to the amp from the TV HDMI output and the digital output? You may have a loop going on and the amp can't handle it.
If you are coming out of the TV with both HDMI and digital hooked to the same input selection on the amp and have the amp set for auto signal select, it could be throwing the amp for a loop and causing it to freak. From what I can see in the specs for that amp it has 2 HDMI in for connecting a HiDef Sat/Cable box, a DVD or Blu-Ray player or a gaming console, and then 1 output to the TV. HDMI handles both audio and video. Disconnect the digital cable and just use the HDMI for both audio and video.
The optimal set up would be as follows:

With a cable or sat box with HDMI out, go to the HDMI input to the TV. From the TV use either HDMI OR digital to the amp, not both. If you have Blu-Ray or HDMI DVD, connect that to the other HDMI input on the TV.

If the TV has only 1 HDMI input then connect the Cable or Sat box to one of the amp HDMI inputs and the Blu-Ray/DVD to the other and then from the HDMI out to the HDMI in to the TV with NO audio cable from the TV to the amp. Then use the cable remote to change channels.

See if one of those connection maps works for you.

If you need more help, let me know. Include the TV model and the digital audio cable interface type, whether it is optical or coax. It would also help knowing if you are using a Satellite or Cable box and which one it is.

I want to connect two dvd players to my tv can you help


yes i can i dont have all the info i need about your tv so ill give you a couple of ways
if your tv is hd
if tv is hd and dvd has hdmi use hdmi if not use component video cables and if your tv is regular use s-video or yellow red and white(composite cables)
ok first connect the cables from the output section of dvd player and connect the other end to the input on your tv. do the same for the other dvd player as well out in the dvd and in into the tv
select the input number on your tv to watch
if your tv doesnt have enough connections on the back you will need to buy a selector(switcher)from any store carrying electronics
if this is case run the cables out from switcher into tv then on the dvd out from dvd and in to selector
if you need more info let me know your wich situation applys to you and i can clarify

How to Connect HDMI Components with AVR 3805 as Hub


In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:

Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.

HDMI connection???


Hi Greg,
Again, if you have a high definition dish box with HDMI output,and a dvd player with HDMI output,please connect them both directly to your TV HDMI inputs.
When watching TV(dishnetwork box).remember to switch the HDMI video inputs.
Same as your DVD player,you need to switch it under your TV video input.

Converting up to 1080


Hello. You have to use the HDMI port and connect to the HDMI, or DVI, port on the back of the TV to get 1080. Even if playing HDDVD, this cable is necessary to get the increase. That, and the TV has to be in 1080 too. If you look at the display, on the front of the player, while watching the DVD, it will tell you at what resolution the DVD is playing. The HDMI to HDMI/DVI must be installed to get the increase in resolution. I have a Panasonic HD 34" 1080i widescreen TV, with DVI connection. When connected, the player played my DVD's at 1080i on my TV, while at only 480i thru the composite cables.

On some older movies or series(I like Star Trek- TNG), it doesn't work well due to the transfer to the DVD. Most newer DVD's, such as Batman Begins (there is an HD out, but I have DVD only), improved on the upconvert for me nicely.

Connecting my HDTV to my Bose Cinemate


If your BOSE system only has one audio input you will have to connect everything to your tv and like the other guy said there will be an audio out on the back of your tv, connect that to your BOSE and when you switch inputs on your tv it should send that audio to your speaker setup.
