What is the best dvd player for a sceptre 32 lcd hdtv


Yes, an hdmi connection is the very best. However, if you are not able to connect your dvd player the other way, just choosing hdmi or not might not solve your issue. Hdmi connections allow upconverting and thus a higher picture quality for you.

I NEED SONY BRAVIA T32 FULL MANUAL...how to conect to computer and camera


Hello there,

Here is the link to the full manual:
http://support.sony-asia.com.edgesuite.net/consumer/IM/4110401121.pdf

Before connecting your devices...
The signals that enter the TV and connected devices will need to be output in the correct format using the suitable connections. Below are the different types of video connectors. When connecting the TV, use the inputs that are available on your devices that provide the best video performance.
Video performance level Name Aspect Signal transmitted Separate audio connection required arrw.jpg HDMI cnn_hdmi.jpg Picture + Sound No DVI*1 cnn_dvi.jpg Picture Yes
l.jpg r.jpg
L-AUDIO-R Component video cnn_component.jpg Picture S-Video cnn_s_video.jpg Picture Composite video cnn_composite.jpg Picture RF/Coaxial cnn_coaxial.jpg Picture + Sound No
*1 If the equipment has a DVI jack and not an HDMI jack, connect the DVI jack to the HDMI IN (with HDMI-to-DVI cable and/or adapter jack), and connect the audio jack to the AUDIO IN (L/R) jacks of HDMI IN. (The DVI connector is for video signals only) To enjoy the best visual experience with your system, it is preferable to connect your best devices with the highest quality connections available. For example: your Blu-Ray Disc player or HD Set Top Box with HDMI, followed by your DVD player with Component, then your Video Cassette Recorder with S-video etc.Note: The quality of the picture also strongly depends on the quality of the cable used.
HDMI The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an all-digital audio/video interface capable of transmitting high definition video and audio signals. HDMI provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video source, such as a set-top box, a DVD player, a PC, a video game system, or an AV receiver and a compatible digital audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV). DVI The Digital Visual Interface is capable of transmitting high definition video, but does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA). It is possible to connect an HDMI device to a DVI device using a HDMI to DVI adapter. Component video Component video is an analogue connection. It is capable of transmitting high definition signals. Component does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA) S-Video Separate video, abbreviated S-Video and also known as Y/C is an analogue video signal that carries the video data as two separate signals (brightness and colour), unlike composite video which carries the entire set of signals in one signal line. S-Video, as most commonly implemented, carries standard definition video. It does not carry audio on the same cable. Composite video Composite video is an analogue video (no sound) format. This is the connector you should use if you do not have any other connector available, in terms of quality. RF/Coaxial RF Coaxial Cable connection is used for transferring television signals (audio and video) originating from an antenna or cable box to a Television.

Goodluck

How do i connect my directv box to my soyo tv #DYLT032D


  • If your DirecTV box supports HDTV then connect it using either an HDMI cable from the box to the TV (located on the back, labeled HDMI 1,2,3,etc.).
  • If the box is not an HDTV box then connect it with a RGB (red, green, blue) composite cable from the box to the TV.
  • If the RGB output is not on the ack of the box then connect using a standard coaxial cable.

[NOTE] In order for the quality of the picture to be HD, use the RGB for digital (Better), or the HDMI for High-def (Best)

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

How do I connect my dell laptop to my LG LCD TV


1. S-Video – This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here’s a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

This is an HDMI compatibility problem. Your cable/SAT box is not playing very nicely with the TV. You can try replacing the cable/SAT box with a different model # or switch your connection type from HDMI to Component (5 wire connection). I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...


The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.

HD 1080p TV


Hey peterman,

Depending on the TV model that you purchased, you may have four to five different options that you can use to make the necessary connections for your home theater: composite, component, S-video, DVI and HDMI cabling.

Composite cabling may often be considered to be the "lowest quality" type of cable that you can use to connect two devices in your home theater, and generally consists of three color-coded cables: one yellow, one red and one white. While the yellow cable is typically used to transmit the video signal to your TV, the red and white cables transmit the right and left audio channels respectively. Composite video is somewhat limited in the fact that it is primarily intended for use with analog TV sets - by using composite cabling you may limit the quality of picture your HDTV is able to display.

Analog component cabling then can be viewed as a “step up” from composite cabling. Rather than transmitting video information over a single cable, component cabling instead uses three. Each of these cables transmits a different portion of a video image, and can often be found in bundles with one red, one green and one blue cable. Please keep in mind that component cabling still requires the use of a secondary cable to carry an audio signal, which may need to be purchased separately.

The primary benefit of using component over composite cabling is that many users may report a cleaner, more brilliant image on their TV as a result. This is not a guarantee however, as picture quality is often based as much on personal preference as it is the actual configuration and settings of the equipment used.

Often considered “in-between” composite and component cabling is S-video. Like component video, S-video cables split the information sent to your TV into multiple analog signals…two signals, to be precise. Unlike component video however, these two separate signals are sent using the same cable. Again, when using this type of connection a separate cable for audio signals is necessary.

DVI cabling is the first truly digital option available to most consumers. While it only carries a video signal (like its analog counterparts), DVI cabling can frequently be found connecting computers to monitors or digital projectors. These types of cables will have a unique shape that prevents them from being used as anything other than a video connection, and were designed to optimize signals transmitted from external devices to a visual display.

HDMI on the other hand, is another widely available digital alternative. Unlike DVI, HDMI cables support both video and audio signals, allowing consumers to avoid the proverbial “rat’s nest” behind a home theater system that one might encounter when using multiple cables.

Because HDMI cabling was developed to be backwards compatible with DVI, HDMI and DVI connections may often be able to be used interchangeably using special adaptors. Essentially, if your HD receiver/Blu-ray player only has DVI outputs and your HDTV only has HDMI inputs, you may still be able to connect those devices to your HDTV using the proper accessories.

While some major retailers may recommend using HDMI cables first and foremost over the other alternatives, this does not necessarily always make them the best choice to use. The quality of an image displayed on an HDTV will always be dependent as much on the TV itself, as it is on personal preference and other external devices. Yes, the type of cables used does play a part, but they should never be treated as the only factor to consider when setting up your home theater.

Should you have any questions or lingering doubts, I would strongly suggest speaking with a Magnolia Home Theater agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Most stores will have similar TV's on display using more than one type of connection, and sales associates are always able to provide additional suggestions if desired.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
