I have a TiVo Series 3 HD DVR connected to the digital input composite terminals - Video Input 5 of teh Sony KP-53HS10. Previously I had a Scientific Atlanta HD set top cable box connected to the same Video 5 input terminal. My problem is that during HD broadcasts from either of the above sources the screen goes black whenever there is a sudden change to
the video such as a fast action scene or dark to light such as a gun or
lightning flash. It also occurs if there is a very light background at the top of the screen. The Sony TV aspect signal detection circuitry resets
for some unknown reason and thus the black screen. When the picture
reappears the TV displays the input it is using (video 5) and the type of signal it is receiving (e.g 1080i.) I believe this occurs because the composite input circuitry of
Video input 5 automatically detects whether the signal is 480 (normal or letterbox),
720 or 1080i and then automatically adjusts the screen aspect size
accordingly. Is there was a way to manually set the input to 1080i this going to black screen phenomenom would not occur? Is my diagnosis correct and is there a solution. I am at the point of purchasing a new HD TV since the problem is very annoying.
This is known issue. The A board need a modification. Parts cost $5 bucks but you need to be good at soldering. You can also get a fixed board for about $200 or a brand new board for about $400. If you search the inernet you sould be able to find the info about this problem at the Tivo community.

Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.
Hi, firstly some terminology: yellow cable - video composite (worst quality) white/red - stereo analog audio blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)
You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.
If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.
For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.
For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.
NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6
Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1
Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1
Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.
No, that will not damage the input. But if you are using component input and the green wire is off or not connected correctly it will prevent a picture from coming on. The green is the luminance and carries the main picture signal.
If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cablesfor more info.
3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.
1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo
2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.
3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.
Another point; HD Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition of an optional part. The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception. If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole. You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Sony will still offer it.

You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.
I believe on this unit input 3 in composit input directly to the av pwb. input 4 and 5 are hdmi and go thru main digital bd. If the composit inputs work and the hdmi's don't you most likely have a defective main digital pcb.
Receivers generally cannot or will not convert from one input type to a different output. That's not to say there may not be some high end models around that do that.
I have this receiver and have it setup as follows. Monitor out Component, S-Video, and the Composite video channel (since I have surround sound I have no interest in getting audio to the TV since I keep its speakers off anyways) to their different inputs on the TV. Warning on some TV's if you plug in S-Video you cannot then use composite on that same input channel as it will override and disable the composite. Then you only need to choose the appropriate input on the TV when you switch sources. In my case Tivo is S-Video, DVD is component, and most of my older video games and VCR are composite.
Having a TV that allows you to change the labels for the input channels is helpful with teaching others that may be less adept, or a snazzy remote that you can program to do everything at once.
