The proper solution is to connect both devices to the television using an HDMI switch. Go to amazon dot com, search for "hdmi switch", filter the search to keep only 4-5 star rated devices, and then select one with more than 100 ratings (to keep them honest). They come in manual (button on hdmi switch) or remote (hdmi switch has a remote control). I've heard good things about Etekcity and J-Tech devices.

Regarding Chi Chu's suggestion: you will lose the 1080p signal using the S-Video / Composite signals; those are strictly 480i interfaces. Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_connectors

Component video is the same HD quality as HDMI. If your TV and one of the sources both have those connections, use them.

    Component video uses green, blue and red, and audio red and white.

  • Lonnie Arks Oct 18, 2015

    Component is NOT same as HDMI by at least two orders of magnitude. Sheesh. Do your homework before you try to answer technical questions.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_vi...

How to hook up Cables


Depends on what kind of cables you use. If you use an HDMI cable, then you simply connect one end to the DVD player to an unused HDMI port on the TV. If you are using a 5 cable Hi Def cable then you connect the outputs of the DVD player to the inputs of the TV color for color Red to red, blue to blue, green to green and red and white cables for the audio. If you are only using a cable with 3 connections, then yellow is for video out from the DVD to component in on the TV and then the red and white cables for the audio.

We have cable T.V. should we run the cable though T.V. when we use s-video cables or use cable though vcr then T.V.


I would hope that you would use a HDMI cable to connect your cable box to your LCD TV - why not display the highest resolution to your screen that you can. HDMI will transmit the 1080P high def signal to your screen. These cables can be found at Wallmart and Target or even Best Buy. Don't need the most expensive and or a 6' length or short will work just fine.
Then use your S-Video cable to connect your VCR/DVD to your LCD TV - This is not a High Def signal - only 480i if that. The P means Progressive or 1080 lines from top to bottom. the I means Interlaced to which means 240 lines once for field one then 240 lines for field two.
You may want to think of a blue ray player to which upconverts your older DVD's to 4x3 High Def resolution.

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

Panasonic legacy connection


s-video is a legacy connection. legacy means obsolete and this will impare your image.

what you should do is connect the cable box and blue ray directly to tv with hdmi cable, then run audio cables back to the reciever from these devices. the vcr and regular dvd player would be routed through the reciever the conventional way. you would have to change the inputs on the tv between the cable box, and blue ray if u have one, and a seperate single tv imput for components running thru the stereo. you would have to use the reciever to select between audio sources, and the video sources between the vcr and dvd only.
