Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I'd like to run my DVD player through our Motorola cable box, but I've read on your site that the inputs are disabled. I have a couple questions about that. Are ALL the input/outputs disabled or just the video/audio ones? What about Video-S? Do you know of any work arounds for this? Previously we had a VCR that we were able to run everything through, however, we don't use the VCR and would like to eliminate that piece. I'd appreciate any help you can give me! Jennifer

I had the same problem and found that the ground wire outside where the cable companys box is was not even hooked up. It was just hanging there, once I hooked it up it went away. The cable company gave me the run around telling me it wasn't their fault. I now have Direct Tv.

SOURCE: DVD/VCR hook up to HDTV. No audio on DVD or VCR, no video on VCR

When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes

SOURCE: sony bravia klv-32t400a hdmi input through x-box

The problem is that, according to the specs for that TV, it doesn't support 1080p.
That's a 720p television you've got. (Specs here)
While the specs say that it supports 1080p, the resolution says it supports 1366 x 768, which is only 720p, not 1080p or even 1080i.
You may want to contact Sony for clarification, because their specs for that tv are contradicting each other.

Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player


Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

My television does not have an audio output so i connected the rs 110 to my cable box and it works fine...however i also have a dvd player connected to the tv video input and for some reason i cannot hear...


You cannot hear the audio from the DVD player because your headphones are connected directly into the cable box. I'm assuming that your DVD does not route through your cable box, thus the audio has no way of getting to your RS 110's. Also, changing the channel on the TV has no effect on the cable box, thus it won't alter than audio.
What you need to do:
  1. Look on the cable box to see if there is an option for AUDIO in (should be a pair of red and white RCA plugs)
  2. You want to run an RCA cable from the AUDIO OUT of the DVD player to the AUDIO IN of the cable box
  3. Then select the Auxillary input from the cable box and you should be able to hear the DVD
Alternatively you can run both DVD audio and video through the cable box
  1. Look for DVD IN on the cable box
  2. Connect the audio/video cables from the DVD player to the cable box
  3. To watch a DVD, switch to the DVD input on the cable box
Alternatively you can run the cable box through the DVD player
  1. There may be inputs for AUDIO and VIDEO in on the back of the DVD player
  2. You want to connect the outputs of the Cable box into the back of the DVD player
  3. You can then select the input on the DVD player to control whether you see/hear the cable or DVD

I no longer have the manual for the product and I want to hook it up to my TV via a cable box; we have Charter cable. The cable box is a Motorola and it says Dolby digital on the front of the cable box. ...


The white, yellow, and red RCA phono jacks on the back are called VGA inputs and outputs. The Red is
right channel audio, The white is for left channel audio. The yellow is the video. Look carefully on the back of the unit and the input jacks and output jacks should be clearly marked.

There are several other input/output ports. One is HDMI which is flat and wide. Another, not common, is composite video which uses the three above mentioned RCA jacks as indicated plus two more colored jacks. This combination gives a better picture.

A third option is a screwed on cable for input and output. This is called a "F" connector and is only used if the receiver equipment has a built in tuner. The output of a cable box is usually an "F" connector and the above described outputs

If you connect the cable box to the DVD player input and the DVD player output to the TV input, you often must have the DVD player turned on so the signal will feed to the TV.

If the TV has multiple inputs, it is best to connect the cable box to one of the TV inputs and the DVD player to another TV input. Using the TV remote you can chose which input you want to watch. The remote should have a button labeled "input"

Mintek DVD-1600 Setup to cable box/tv


A dvd player that doesn't record hooks straight to the television, not the cable box. Tv's typically have av jacks. If yours doesn't, you will need to buy an rf modulator. If your tv has the jacks, U will need to use your tv remote and hit tv video or input or source on that tv remote to switch between input and tv modes.

Dvd connection


Does your cable box have rca jacks on it. If so you can run your cable cord from the wall to the input on the cablebox. Then from the cable box to the dvd. Your cable box should have the audio lines which are red and white. Connect those to the dvd's red and white inputs. And the yellow video cord from the cablebox to the dvd video input. Try that................I hope that was helpful for you..........Please rate this information..........Thank you for using Fixya.com..... : )

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Recording from cable dvr


You have to hook up an AV cable from the box to the DVDR.. Out on the cable box to IN on the DVD player.
Then put your DVD player on AV1 - ( you can do this by pressing the INPUT SEL button on the DVDR remote)

Then put the Cable box on whatever channel you want to record. And press the record button on the DVDR and you will record whatever channel the cable box is on

If you can't get to AV1 then you have to disable cable box control (menu>setup>system>cable box control>off
