Question about Insignia Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a 5.1 channel Insignia receiver that I'm using to set up a home theater system. I am connecting my Samsung blu-ray player to it with an hdmi cable. The sound and video work correctly until the menu comes up, and then the tv displays "no signal" but the sound stays on. If I switch the receiver to another output signal and then back to the blu ray, the video comes back on, but every time a menu switch comes up, I have to do this. (For example, it loses the video signal when I load the blu ray; I switch it on and off and then it comes back, but I lose it again when I start the movie. I have no idea what is wrong with it.

I am going to take a stab at this one because it is interesting and hopefully it will help you. I see there are possible two issues to solve here. Lets do a test,
Connect the Samsung, using the HDMI cable DIRECTLY to the the HDTV. See what happens.
The reason I say this is because the Insignia Receiver is probably at least two years old. There have been several levels of HDMI Standard implemented in the last several years. That leads me to believe that he Samsung menu option signal may not be compatible with your receiver. To clarify this, take a look at the link below. It refers to the different HDMI Standards. 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4. When your receiver was introduced, I believe it complied with the 1.2 HDMI standard.
Hope this helps, Happy New Year, Mark

How do I hook up my HDMI Blu ray player to my theater system that doesnt have HDMI


You have a few options depending on the entire system.

Do you have the TV audio output connected to the home theater system? In that case, connect the Blu-ray player to an HDMI input on the TV. Then leave the home theater system set to the TV input, while the TV is set to the HDMI input for the Blu-ray player. This is the simplest method.

You could use an audio extractor/converter. Here's an example: https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E . This will let you send the video signal to the TV (with a second HDMI cable) and have digital or analog audio sent to the home theater system.

If the TV doesn't have an available HDMI port and the home theater system only has analog audio inputs, you could use an HDMI to component video converter. You'd use something like this: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/770115-REG/KanexPro_HDRGBRL_HDMI_to_Component_Converter.html . (Do not use an HDMI to component cable. Those only work with some projectors.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more details about your TV and audio system for more specific information.

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

You plug the home theater system into the television's hdmi in slot. However you want to plug the blu ray player into the HOME theater system's hdmi in slot not the television's.

Then you can take another hdmi cable and connect the hdmi out from the television into another hdmi in on the home theater if you have enough room.

You have several ways to do this. You can hdmi cables from the two units and plug them into your tv if it supports hdmi and run the audio out portion on the back of the tv and hook that into one of the audion inputs on the surround unit. Or you run audio directly out of the bluray using rca, digital coax, or digital optical cable. Turn the surround reciever to the corresponding input that you choose to use.
