Try using a different HDMI cable; one that is not simplay or 1.3.
The HDMI can control functions of the TV.
If you get a cheaper cable it may not do this.

Emerson LCD TV Model LD190EM1 Sony Blu-Ray Disc Player, Model BDP-S3100, The TV screen gives an error reading "Format not supported" when I connected it using either HDMI connection.


This HDTV is rated display signals up to and including 720P resolution according to the spec linked below. If you are outputting a 1080i or 1080P signal from your BD Player, this could be the cause for the error message. Many HDTVs will accept signals higher than they can display - and simply down-rez to the highest resolution that they can display.

Connect the BD Player to a device that can display the signal. Enter the player's setting and change the output to 720P. Shut it off / disconnect cables as needed and reconnect it to the Emerson HDTV and see if it will display properly.

If it does, you're all done! if it doesn't - there's something else going on that isn't readily apparent to me. Good luck!

I have a 55" LG


Easy solution; this is a very common problem. Connect Cable or satellite box / DVR directly to one of the TV HDMI inputs. Connect an optical audio cable from that box to receiver so sound is surround through your speakers. You cannot connect DVR directly to receiver because the anti pirating chip will shut off the picture and produce a green or no screen at all.
You can, however, connect a BD (Blu-Ray) player via HDMI cable directly to your receiver without that problem. Connect HDMI output from receiver to a second HDMI input on the LG.
Contact me if you need more help! All the best, John

I have a VL470M and am trying to connect a LGBD570 Blu-Ray through HDMI. It works fine through the composite input, but the HDMI says "no signal". Am I doing something wrong?


There are two possible issues. 1) The resolutions are mismatched. (output of the player and input of the TV) 2) the player can not confirm that the TV supports HDCP over the HDMI connection. Only 3 of the 4 HDMI ports are HDCP (high def copy protection) compatible.

Try a different HDMI port and make sure that you have the input set to the correct HDMI port. (There is an input button on the side of the TV as well as on the remote.)

The easiest things to check are turn off the Blu-Ray player and then turn it on again. Then press the Home button and navigate to the Setup Menu. Select Display and press the right arrow button, then select Resolution and press Enter. Then set the desired resolution and press Enter to confirm the selection. (Your TV should support 1080p from the Blu-ray player.) Then turn off the player since changing the resolution can lead to video issues.

I hope this helps.

I have a samsung tv and samsung blu ray i have my dvr in hdmi 1 and my blu ray in hdmi 2. when i first turn on my tv and blu ray it works fine but if i switch to cable the back to blu ray it says no...


First, HDMI is not a perfect hook-up solution. Cable box connections via HDMI are notorious for being problematic. The best thing you can do is contact Samsung and get the latest firmware for your TV.
Samsung Customer Care: 1-800-Samsung (1-800-726-7864). If this does not resolve the issue, connect the cable box using Component cables instead of the HDMI. Component cables are HD also. I hope this was of some assistance.

I want to hook my vizio tv up to my computer what cords are needed?


Likely standard VGA ... unless you have an HD card in your computer ... I got one for mine in order to play blu ray after I bought a blu ray drive for my computer. In that case I needed an HDMI cable. HDMI passes both the video and the audio, otherwise you need to connect also a stereo audio cable between your sound card output and the tv input, close to the computer VGA connection.

So:

42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input


You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.
