Question about Televison & Video
I’m using all hdmi ones on the xbox 360 ones on the PS3 the other on Yamaha DVD-S1700
On the old loveable scart leads when you turned on an appliance the auto detect would turn the TV to the right station however I don’t get this with the HDMI leads, turn on any one and the TV will sit on the same station I have to use the source button on remote one by one go to the right station depending on which HDMI you want to use, has this TV not got an auto detect HDMI or have I not set-up correctly have tried to sort out but to no use.
Also I have programmed the remote so I can use the DVD player with the TV remote and I want to program the 3 digit remote code for a Sony AV STR DB 780, which I can’t find, any help would be, appreciated many thanks Nigel.
SOURCE: audio via hdmi
I had the same problem with the same configuration. In addition to the HDMI which is (DVD and Audio OUT only by the way) you need to connect the TV to the DVD through a high quality SCART cable as well. Remember to connect the SCART cable only while both the TV and DVD are switched off. To get the TV sound out of the DVD surround sound you need to click the FUNCTION key on the DZ230 remote a couple of times till you get the word TV on its screen, this is when you should hear the TV sound coming out of your surround sound as expected. Good luck.

First off a little tip that manufacturers don't tell you is that you HAVE to TURN OFF the POWER to ANY UNITS that you are Connecting to via HDMI!!!!!!! If not you can short out the Inputs!!!!!!!! HDMI is usually Automatic, But sometimes you need to go into the Menus on all Devices to the HDMI section and write down their settings and compare them. Any definition that you are not sure of check the Manual or Google it! Match all the Settings (there won't be Much!) Hopefully the Inputs were not Damaged it only takes one time to short it out and then the Repairman makes a few bucks! Good Luck!

You have to use the scart connector for on screen menu settings. Go to the video option and enable HDMI and/or match resolution output to your set.
You did not mention the model of the TV so here is another scenario,
Just because the TV is 1 year old doesn't mean that it is a 1080p capable, you could have set the HDMI resolution settings to 1080p and you will not get any picture if your set cannot process the information.
