No video to tv or computer screen how to get it to display for menu set up?


Hello,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} "Traditional Cables", are you refer to the red, white, and yellow cables?
Once you connected those from Cd/DVD to the receiver, did you then connect another yellow cable from the "monitor out" on the receiver, to an input on your television?
This is generally the step that people forget about.
The back of your receiver should have a "monitor" or "tv" output on it. You need to connect another yellow cable from it to an input on your TV, then turn your TV to that specific input.

That should do the trick.

I have a hp w1907 and just wondering if that had


At this page you can see details about connecting the audio cable between the pc and your monitor. In two words all you have to do is connect the green audio jack from your pc tower (line out) with the green audio jack at the back of your monitor. In case you don't have the cable you can find one asking for it as "cable with 3.5mm stereo jack both ends"

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

How to connect a sony monitor no tv tuner to a cable box


It's unlikely that you'll be able to use a computer monitor as a television.

Cable boxes have specific outputs, and computer monitors have specific inputs. They generally don't align with one another.

However, your monitor may have VGA inputs on it, and your cable box may have a VGA output (though unlikely).

If you can provide the model number of your cable box, and your monitor, I'll be able to help you more.

HDMI only for video and sound through regular audio input


DVI does NOT support sound unlike HDMI. Hopefully your PC has a Co-axial S/PDIF digital output. If not you might want to spend the $50 and buy a nice one from Creative. Modern motherboards are even coming with HDMI built-in but that's NOT your situation. I use a 15" DVI to HDMI cable but you are probably using an adapter and the a regular HDMI cable. Get co-axial digital audio cable of the right length and connect it to the co-axial inputs (they're in the upper corner). Use the remote's set-up button and select the "Digital Input" option. This is very powerful. You can assign any of the Optical or Co-axial inputs to any associated device.

I have my PC as Video 3 with sound coming in via HDMI which I assign under the "HDMI Video" menu and sound under the "Digital Input" as "Coax1". I use "Coax2" for the DVD player that lacks an optical output. If you use regular analog you are screwed as you found out. I usually use the headphone jack and an extension cable with the Computer and watch on it's monitor.

All HDTV sets are **** compared to a decent computer monitor. The deliver MUCH clearer video and much higher resolutions that shitty the 1080 HDTV maxes out at. ATSC is **** compared to a PC. Grated, cable is junk compared to ATSC at 1080i but that's another story. Yet, comparing ATSC to a computer is like comparing NTSC or digital cables' crappy 480i with ATSC at 1080i. It that much greater. At least 720p is wide screened unlike 480i garbage that's most of Comcast's "HD" digital junk.

I'd like to connect my HP laptop to Yamaha 663 receiver


Connect your S-video output from the computer to an empty S-video input on the receiver. Connect your speaker output from computer to analog audio input on the receiver using a 1/8" stereo connector to RCA patch cable. You may have to set your computer to output video to the S-video jack, consult your HP documentation for instructions.

NAD T753 s-video in, component video out problem


I have the same amp. You have to have the same input as you do output for video...ie: s-video in/s-video out, composite video in/composite video out. I know it sucks but thats how NAD designed it.

S-video from computer through receiver


yes, if you use the S-Video output on your laptop to the input on the receiver, then another S-Video cable from the Monitor Out port on the receiver to an S-Video port on your TV. Then select the appropriate source on the TV and receiver.

Be reminded that this receiver will not convert the signal from S-Video to composite video (the yellow cable) nor from composite video to S-Video.

Also be reminded that S-Video will pass only video, not audio. You need a seperate cable to go from a 3.5mm headphone stereo jack to 2 RCA composite audio plugs.

How to connect using a LCD monitor, cable box, DVD player


You won't need the VCR, that's only used for a cable box, and since you have one now there is no need. You'll want to connect everything with the better video plugin possible. Composite (red, white, yellow) is the worst, then s-video, then component (red, blue, green), then DVI, then HDMI. That will square your video. Then send all audio signals to the Denon. These cables are usually the red and white cables. OR Plug everything into the Denon to the appropriate input. Then connect the monitor to the video out of the Denon.
