Question about Televison & Video
Hi, it's not a problem that's why I'm here. EVEN if you have a manual they don't make for easy reading. used to be all you had to do with a television was plug it in then hook up your antenna. Now you have MENU'S, INPUT selectors, MODES, etcetera. To start I'll assume no manual, ALL flat screens have many holes and slots on them( on back and sometimes the sides ) if you have a Hi-Definition cable box or satellite box you'll need for best picture an HDMI cable, about $20, connect one end to the " slot on your receiver to the one on your t.v. then use remotes "input" or A/V selector to whatever the " SLOT " on t.v. was marked as, example: HDMI 1,2, or 3. if no remote there will be somewhere on the front of t.v. near the screens edge, or a side edge of it ( this may even be on bottom or top edge ) with any luck they'll be labeled example +,- ( those are usually for the volume, also when in menu either move you up and down thru list or to the left and right ) then you'll have < > those are for channel up and down ( and once again if in menu move you either up/down or L/R ) next will be an INPUT selector ( possibly marked A/V or t.v./v.c.r. or maybe even input, this is most important as once you have connected a device-it should give you a picture) then one marked MENU ( used for controlling the brightness/contrast/tint/sharpness/picture and audio settings like bass/treble/balance/virtual surround/s.a.p./stereo,mono) next will be last but not least a POWER button. Trial and error is a fine way to learn how to run something-the more you practice, the easier it will get. hooking up D.V.D.'s or Blu-Ray's are not much different than hooking up cable/sat boxes ( excepting when using HDMI cords-audio is built in!)-sometimes you'll need to use what're called RCA cables-they are alway color coordinated for ease of hookup. The yellows go to and from " video in-to-video outs " and the red and whites are for your sound ( audio out L+R-to audio in L+R ) the simplest way to hook up( picture with least quality ) is with a COAXIAL cable, their ends spin and usually aren't color coordinated and they are less flexible than RCA's. connect these types from an " out to T.V. to " ant. input on back of t.v. if I have left anything out I apologize, I hope this helps, good luck, Prodzilla
