I would suspect any old HDMI cable would work. Those monster cables are great but overkill if you don't want to spend a lot of money.

How do I hook up a HD satallite dvr to a av reciever dvd player and HDTV using HDMI cables


Things You’ll Need:
  • HD television
  • HD satellite or cable receiver
  • DVD player
  • Stereo receiver
  • AV cables
  • Cable connector
  • HDMI cables
Step1Examine 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). Step2Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV. Step3Connect 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. Step4Find 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. Step5Turn 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). Step6Access 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. Hope that helps..........

I am trying to set up a yamaha receiver and I can not get it to work. I have a hdmi cable from the receiver to the tv. Is there something special I need to do to get it to come on.


Are you feeding a signal from a blu-ray player, satellite dish or other set top box to the receiver and then HDMI out to the TV? That will work with most TVs. If this isn't working, try new cables. Make sure all of the cables are well seated.

Otherwise, the TV only has HDMI in, no HDMI out. So either you have HDMI out on the receiver to HDMI in on the TV or HDMI in to HDMI in. Neither will send audio to the receiver. Depending on the receiver, you will need to connect one of the TV's audio out ports to an audio in port on the receiver. The WD-60C9 has both a digital audio out and an analog audio out. Both are between the HDMI ports and the composite video in on the back of the tv.

I hope this helps.

the signal input on the cable connection to to your tv (inside your tv) is broken, and possibly needs to be replaced. Possibly few capasitors or other parts might need to be replaced. or the whole signal board.

Satellite input


Most tv setups require that you change the input source to gain the ability to watch the proper peripheral e.g. if satellite is connected on video one and the dvd is connected to the tv on another input such as video 2.

If the satellite runs into the dvd unit and from there the dvd is connected to tv you may have to power off or on the dvd player to resolve conflict.

Another problem may be the resolution setting if your tv is Hi Def. Set the tv and receiver to the resolution e.g. 1080i.

You can also changed the way the satellite is connected to the tv possibly if you have other inputs.

Check the channel also, if the unit is connected with coax it would more than likely need to be on ch 3 or 4 if you are at the satellite receiver box location. If you are at a stand alone tv off of a dual tuner you may need to search the channels for the right source both air(analog) and cable(digital).
Hope this helps you out. If I can be of more assistance let me know.

I am trying to hook up my tv to my receiver, I have a dvd vcr combo,and cable box


Audio: There should be a set of audio outputs on your TV. Connect those to the AUX inputs of your receiver. When you turn on your receiver, set it to AUX. Set your TV volume to approx 1/3 and adjust the volume on your receiver. There's probably a menu section on the TV to turn off your TV speakers so the sound will only come from your receiver.

DVD/VCR (I'll call it DVD from this point forward): Connect the video (yellow) output from the DVD to the "video input" on the back of the TV. Connect the audio out on the DVD player (red) to the red audio input on the back of the TV, then do the same with the other audio (white). When you want to use your DVD player, you'll select "input 1" as the input on the TV.

Cable: Your cable box probably has numerous output types. I have the cable box hooked up to both the DVD player AND to the TV; one output type going to the DVD player and another output type going to the TV. I like to use the HDMI output from the cable box to the TV, and the composite video from the cable box to the DVD.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.

The DVD and video player have HDMI. Component, S-Video and RCA audio/video output connections that need to be connected to the appropriate inputs on your TV. You select the type of connector and cable to use.

HDMI provides the best quality, if available and works for both audio and video.

The TV's, DVD's and video player's manuals describe how in detail. Look at the connection instructions and diagrams. You then must select the correct input on the TV to play each source.

yes, hdmi will give you better results..
are you running hdmi to hdmi connection on tv from cable box?
if so, that is correct but as for the dvdr, what tv port are you connecting it to? i would use another hdmi cable for the dvd too for best picture resultif it's an option on your dvd.. you should have multiple input outlets on your lcd with 1-3 options for input devices via analog or hdmi.. so analog is not hdmi--hdmi is digital so it switches to the hdmi resolution when you turn it on..

let me know how it goes and if i was helpful involving resolution.. helpful feedback is appreciated.. thanks, d
