I have a VL470M and am trying to connect a LGBD570 Blu-Ray through HDMI. It works fine through the composite input, but the HDMI says "no signal". Am I doing something wrong?

There are two possible issues. 1) The resolutions are mismatched. (output of the player and input of the TV) 2) the player can not confirm that the TV supports HDCP over the HDMI connection. Only 3 of the 4 HDMI ports are HDCP (high def copy protection) compatible.

Try a different HDMI port and make sure that you have the input set to the correct HDMI port. (There is an input button on the side of the TV as well as on the remote.)

The easiest things to check are turn off the Blu-Ray player and then turn it on again. Then press the Home button and navigate to the Setup Menu. Select Display and press the right arrow button, then select Resolution and press Enter. Then set the desired resolution and press Enter to confirm the selection. (Your TV should support 1080p from the Blu-ray player.) Then turn off the player since changing the resolution can lead to video issues.

I hope this helps.

    You may want to try a new HDMI cable in case of damage.

How do I connect a bluray which only has HDMI output to the TV


If your TVs HDMI input port is used you can use a splitter like this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OHHG768?keywords=switching%20hdmi%20splitter&qid=1456943391&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1
to connect another HDMI device to the TV

If your TV does NOT have an HDMI input you need to convert the HDMI output from the blu-ray to RCA like this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Cater-Mini-Composite-Converter-Input/dp/B0149M9WFI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456943578&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=convert+hdmi+to+RCA&psc=1
but this actually will reduce the high blu-ray quality to a lower resolution

I have a old emerson tv w a video and audio jacks in front and bdp s2100 blueraydisk player cannot get them to connect.


Your Sony BDP-S2100 Blu-ray Disc Player only has an HDMI output because it is intended for HD (720 or 1080) video.

The inputs you are referring to on the front of your Emerson TV are the older RCA-style inputs that can only handle standard definition (480). Specifically, if they are three inputs that are yellow (video) red and white (left and right audio) those are known as Composite RCA.

You will need an "HDMI to Composite RCA" converter box. I did some searching and found this one on Amazon that is intended for specifically what you need.

I can't endorse it or vouch for it but it is a starting point to see if you can find what you need and you may be able to find similar devices elsewhere for less.

How to connect hdmi to composite


Normally you cannot connect hdmi signal to a composite input as the signals are totally different. HDMI is a digital signal and composite is analog. You may have to buy an adapter like the one shown below but the video quality will suffer. HDMI is very high resolution image and composite video is very low quality in comparison.

Would be something like this from Amazon.

How to plug the blu-ray into the tv


It depends on the TV inputs. You will need to provide your own cables for most connections. If your TV has an HDMI in, get an HDMI M/M cable of an appropriate length. (Use an online shop for better prices.) This will provide the best picture. (If you have a sound system with HDMI ports, you may be able to go EDBC011 HDMI out to the sound systems HDMI in. Then the sound system HDMI out to the TV HDMI in.) If the TV has a DVI port, get an HDMI to DVI cable (again M/M). For this option, you will also need to connect the audio cable (see below in the composite or component video section).

Alternatively, this Blu-ray player has component and composite video out ports. Note: composite video is limited to SD. For these, you will have to connect the audio cables (RCA l/r audio or digital audio out). The composite video cable is included with the blu-ray player when new. For these, match the colors of the jacks to the wires to make sure that you have them correctly connected. You can put the audio cables to your sound system or your TV, as appropriate for your setup. For some TVs, you may need a RCA audio to 3.5 mm cable (all male ends) or adapter (for example RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M with an RCA audio cable or 3.5 mm F to RCA M/M with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) . This applies for units with only the PC audio in.

Make the connections with the TV and the video player off (turn off the audio system if you are including that set of wiring). Then turn on the TV and set it to the desired input (use the Input/Source button on your remote or TV). Turn on the audio system (if using one) and blu-ray player.

If you have problems, first try different cables. Try other input connections and try different devices. It's possible for either the TV or the blu-ray player input/output jacks or boards were damaged.

The manual for the EDBC011 is available here: http://www.elementelectronics.com/support_docs/edbco11/edbco11_manual.pdf .

Can not get my hd channels to work. other tv in house also with hd channels works fine. regular channels working but the hd chanels are not working. not sure what to adjust or why.


You can't change the resolution on the television itself. You change the resolution on whatever you have connected to the television. Let's say it's a cable box or a blu ray player you've got connected to the television. First off you have to connect it to the television with a component (green, blue, red, white, red) cable or an hdmi cable. Then you make sure it is only connected to the television with either a component cable or an hdmi cable. This may sound ridiculous but there are some people that have their cable boxes and blu ray players connected to their televisions three different ways ( an hdmi cable, a composite cable, and a component cable) when they only need to have it connected one way.
Select the proper input on the television. Set the cable box or blu ray player's resolution to 1080i or 1080p (in the case of the blu ray player if it the tv will allow it).

How to tune in for blu ray dvd


You do not tune in your Bluray player but connect using an HDMI cable or Composite cable. If you have a HDMI cable connect the Bluray's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI in at the back and using the TV's remote switch the Input source to HDMI. You will see the image from the Bluray player in high definition.
If you don not have a HDMI cable connect the composite out of the Bluray player using the Yellow/Red/White cable to the TV's composite input ( same three color sockets ) and switch to AV input on the TV. Using this connection won't give you high definition image but will work OK.

You MUST select EXTERNAL Input, NOT a Channel. You MUST connect up via, the INPUTS at rear, either COMPONENT, or COMPOSITE, Or, HDMI. Except for HDMI, ALL Cables, go Color Jack, to Color jack. 3 for composite & Audio, and 5 for Component & Audio.

I have a samsung tv and samsung blu ray i have my dvr in hdmi 1 and my blu ray in hdmi 2. when i first turn on my tv and blu ray it works fine but if i switch to cable the back to blu ray it says no...


First, HDMI is not a perfect hook-up solution. Cable box connections via HDMI are notorious for being problematic. The best thing you can do is contact Samsung and get the latest firmware for your TV.
Samsung Customer Care: 1-800-Samsung (1-800-726-7864). If this does not resolve the issue, connect the cable box using Component cables instead of the HDMI. Component cables are HD also. I hope this was of some assistance.

Depending on the model of your Yamaha, you will have to go into setup of it. In there go to the input settings and select what should be done. Example: for DVD select HDMI as input. I take it you are using the HDMI out as well? This is what I had to do on my RX-V3800n

Hope this helps.
