How to Hook Up a Receiver to an HDTV

Though it utilizes the most sophisticated technology on the plant, an HDTV is extremely easy to hook up to a receiver. Home entertainment systems are designed for compatibility, whether it is a cable or satellite receiver, a DVD player or a stereo sound system.


Instructions

things you'll need:

* HD television
* HD satellite or cable receiver
* DVD player
* Stereo receiver
* AV cables
* Cable connector
* HDMI cables


Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar).

Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV.


Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row.


Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV.


Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will).


Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal.

Tips & Warnings

*

Not everything that can be hooked up to an HDTV is capable of playing in high definition. The signal needs to be HD as well, which means that only HD broadcasts, HD DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs can play in full high definition (though "upgrade" DVD players will allow normal DVDs to play at an enhanced picture). You can still hook receivers up to an HDTV, and it will still play broadcasts from them as clearly as the signal permits.

    How to Hook Up a Receiver to My DirecTV

    In order to watch DirecTV programming in stereo or surround sound, you'll want to connect to your stereo or home theater receiver. The connection is simple, but you'll need to decide what type of system (surround or stereo) that you intend to have before you connect any components.

    Instructions

    things you'll need:

    * DirecTV receiver
    * Stereo receiver
    * Appropriate audio cable




    Check the DirecTV receiver. This is where it pays to know what type of sound that you're looking for. If you intend to use a surround sound system, with true surround sound, you'll need a digital connection. More advanced DirecTV receivers and HD models will have either a coaxial digital connection, an HDMI connection, an optical connection or a combination of these. All these connections will support surround sound. If you only have an analog connection (red and white jacks), you will not be able to get true surround sound. You can still use surround speakers, but you won't get five distinct channels of sound, but rather a blending of two channels.


    Check your stereo receiver. Make sure that the input connection on your stereo matches the output of the DirecTV receiver. All stereo receivers will have analog inputs, but you might not have an available digital input or you might have an input that differs from your DirecTV output. Ensure that you have a matching connection and buy the appropriate cable.

    Note that optical/coaxial converters are available to match separate connections.


    Connect the components. With the correct cable (RCA, coaxial, optical, HDMI) connect the audio output on your DirecTV receiver to the audio input on your receiver. Use input terminals labeled "Cable" or "Video" when available to keep it simple.

    HDMI carries both audio and video, so if you connect using HDMI, you'll need to connect the video on your television using a seperate HDMI cable from your stereo receiver HDMI output. Otherwise, you don't need to run video through your receiver and can connect directly to your TV using component video, S-video or composite video connection.


    Turn your DirecTV, stereo receiver and TV on. Switch the receiver to the input that you used to connect the DirecTV and you should now get audio from your DirecTV on your stereo or home theater system.

    Tips & Warnings

    *

    Use a separate audio output on your DirecTV receiver connected to the television, if you want to be able to use the sound on your television without having to turn on the stereo receiver every time you watch TV.

I have a 32inch Phillips HD ready TV but there does not seem to be and HD input for my DVD player


"HD input" is HDMI. If the DVD doesn't have HDMI output then use the 5 wire hookup - the component hookup.
The TV input for HD would be HDMI or component input - 5 wires.

What wires / connections do i need to run my home pc through the t.v


Depends on what hookups the Tv and PC have. Newer laptops have a HDMI jack, otherwise the external monitor jack will do. Then the TV must have a monitor hookup. Most likely not. So then you'll need some type of a conversion cable to go from PC to TV. Check your local Best Buy for the cable.
