Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I'm a Comcast customer who has just attached the new digital receiver Comcast sent me to my Vizio 1080 flat screen TV. The connection is working fine, but I subsequently had difficulty attaching my Panasonic DVD. Prior to having the new digital receiver, I connected the TV to the DVD via a converter box. However, whereas I thought I needed to somehow connect the DVD to both the receiver and the TV, a Comcast technician I spoke with said with the kind of TV I have, I simply need to connect the DVD directly to the TV. Is this correct? Can I simply connect the DVD to the Vizio 1080 using a three-pronged video/audio out cable from the DVD to the video/audio in connections on the TV? Maybe you can direct me to a diagram which would help me. Thanks.

To connect a dvd player to your tv all you need is a 3-headed cable - the one in which the heads have the Yellow,Red and White color at both ends.
To connect it all you have to do is to match the colors both at the tv and the player - the plugs will be very close together - and select the appropriate AV entry from the menu - or just start playing the disk and press the Source/AV button until the image appears.

Im connecting my hp laptop to my vizio. I'm getting video but, no volume. Im using a HDMI cable. What else am I missing.


When you use the HDMI connection you have to choose how the audio will be sent by the source (your PC) and how it will be received by the Receiver (your TV).
The audio can be selected to be sent in the digital format through the HDMI or being sent out through the analog audio out put port (Green miniphone jack on the PC), same thing on the receiving end.
Ypu need to go to the TV HDMI on screen set up to select what you want, same thing on your PC HDMI setup.

I have a Vizio LCD HDTV 1080 120hz 37", ModelSV370XT. (Bought 1/10/10 at Costco) The tv fell to the ground resulting in scratches appearing in the picture screen. You can't feel scratched on the TV surface...


The statement was not complete in the forum , hence I presume the LCD was damaged while it fell to the ground.
The cost of replacing a new LCD to a new set must be reviewed unless you are able to get one swapped from an old one.

Hello!
Comcast here. Most likely, the channels you need have been converted to a digital signal and now require a DTA (Digital Transport Adapter). Comcast is supplying our customer that lost programing as a result of the digitial transition up to 2 DTA's per home free of charge. Email our team at the address below. We'll get you cared for.

Digital channels freeze


I also had this channel 5-1 freezing problem and spoke with Vizio support a few times. They thought the problem was the SSID code from the local CBS station and said they would try talking with them. I am not certain if they did this or not, but, as of mid December, my Vizio no longer has this problem.
