You should never connect a Blue Ray or DVD player to a TV through a USB port. Use a scart/composite/component/HDMI connection to connect the player to the TV.

HDMI would be the best connection possible, but most devices don't come with a HDMI cable. Go to any electronics store and pick up a HDMI cable for about 10 dollars/euros. Don't pay for overly expensive (I'm looking at you, Monster Cables) as they are a giant waste of money.

Vizio tv says no signal on any of the hdmi ports


Unfortunately, you fried the HDMI controller. Not necessarily part of the power supply "main board." (Not sure which board is the HDMI controller in your specific TV. It's usually a separate board by itself). Easiest workaround is to use the "Component" cable connectors. The downside is you only get 720P. However, most cable/satellite and _all_ antenna signals are only 720P anyway. Most people only see 1080P when viewing Blu-Ray discs. Aside from replacing the HDMI controller, the cheapest workaround for multiple source connections is to buy an HDMI to Component Converter A/V box, which allows you to connect multiple devices to one box with one set of Component cables connecting to the TV. Then select various "sources" via the box.

I have a Vizio TV and would like to add a Chromecast streaming media player,the information I have shows the player powered via the USB IN 1 port,would the RGB PC port work? I have model #GV47L FHDTV


Chromecase is a USB 'stick' type device with a USB interface. The RGB port is a video only port on the TV and not compatible with USB signal levels or the physical plug type.

My blu ray 3d dvd player will not show picture on blu ray discs only sound but will play regular dvds correctly


The video for blu ray disks come out of the HDMI port and that has to be connected to the TV for video. If it is connected, make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI port on the TV (assuming you have a flat screen HDTV).

I continue to have to switch my HDMI cable between 2 ports on my TV because initally there is "no signal". But when I switch ports I get a signal. So is this a HDMI cable issue, port issue or my Insignia...


My best bet would be a port issue - see if another device will work plugged into that port. (Some HDTVs have a HDMI port strictly for Service and nothing else but a Technicians specified cable will work in this port, look at the Manual) Check to see if your TV is set to the same port as your connecting to. One will be HDMI 1, next HDMI 2 and so on, the input button on remote should switch from port to port, make sure port setting on TV is same as #port your connected to.

I cannot get sound from a sony BDS350 (Blue ray


This must be configuration problem on the BD player. In this case receiver just outputs the signal it receives digitally. If it displayes PCM 2ch, that means it receives only 2 channel audio from BD player.
You can try to configure the BD player not to decode audio and to output the RAW stream over coax cable to the receiver. Then the receiver should get raw Dolby Digital encoded data and be able to decode it into 5.1 channels. It should also display Dolby D instead of PCM in such case.

HDMI version is 1.3 in your receiver.The current version is 1.3b. I would suggest calling Pioneer cust assistance and see if there is a firmware update. Your unit has a 2 year parts & labor warranty. Their # is 1-800-421-1404 It sounds like a CODEC issue. Hope this helps

No connection/ no signal


Either the new BlueRay player is defective, the HDMI port on the player is defective, or the port on your set is defective.

Try connecting it with component RGB/AV cables, or S-Video/AV cables and see if everything works. If so, then you know that it is either the port on the BlueRay, or the port on the TV set.

To test the HDMI port on your TV, you will need another HDMI device to try.
