I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?

Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

There is no region free firmware available for your player at the moment. There is a guy in australia who has created one but will not release it. HD DVD's dont have region coding. I assume its for regular dvds?

Dvd player will not player dvd's or cd's

When you put the DVD in, you mean it will not launch the appropriate player to start playback of the video?

Maybe your autoplay settings are messed up.

Try launching your movie playback software and attempt to manually play the disc and see if this works.

Another thing, is your drive listed under my computer?

Frozen A30

Hey wingnutz,

If your HD-DVD player has been locking up after a recent firmware update, you may wish to attempt rebooting/resetting the unit before considering any kind of repair option.

First I would suggest seeing if you can enter the "Setup" menu from the "Welcome" screen. If you are able to do so, under the "Maintenance" option there should be a command called "Initialize." After selecting this command, you will need to turn the player off and unplug it for several minutes. This should cause the unit to reset.

If doing so does not resolve the problem, you may wish to then look for a pinhole reset button on the back or underside of the player. Typically players that have a reset button will return to their original factory settings when this button is depressed. Please keep in mind that not all HD-DVD player models will have such a feature, so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information.

Alternatively, many products (DVD players, computers, etc.) will have what is often referred to as a "soft reset." This is typically done by pressing and holding the power button down for 10 to 15 seconds.

Should your player still be stuck on the "Welcome" screen after trying all of these, you may need to contact Toshiba or a local repair technician for further assistance. Remember that if you are unsure where your local repair facility is, you may always obtain service and repairs by bringing your player into your local Best Buy™ store.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

HD-A3 Movies Don't Play Video, but Menus are fine?

Might be a resolution issue, the menus are most likely in 480, while the video might be in a resolution not supported by your tv. Try changing the resolution and see what happens.

Toshiba DVD player

Hey Mueller8400,

If you purchased a Toshiba HD-DVD player from your local Best Buy™ store before February 23rd, 2008, you may be eligible to receive a $50.00 Best Buy™ gift card. Many of our customers should have already received notification of this offer and their gift cards, but if you have not yet received anything in the mail I would strongly suggest contacting us directly for further assistance. You can reach a Consumer Relations agent by calling our toll-free hotline at 888-Best-Buy (888-237-8289), and requesting to speak with an agent regarding a store policy question.

Please keep in mind however, that not all DVD players are eligible for this offer. Combination HD-DVD/Blu-ray players, computers with HD-DVD ROM drives, and upconvert DVD players do not qualify as eligible products at this time.

I would also suggest making sure that you have the receipt or order confirmation page from your purchase handy when you contact Consumer Relations, as your order number or Customer Service PIN number will be necessary to ensure that you qualify.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Converting up to 1080

Hello. You have to use the HDMI port and connect to the HDMI, or DVI, port on the back of the TV to get 1080. Even if playing HDDVD, this cable is necessary to get the increase. That, and the TV has to be in 1080 too. If you look at the display, on the front of the player, while watching the DVD, it will tell you at what resolution the DVD is playing. The HDMI to HDMI/DVI must be installed to get the increase in resolution. I have a Panasonic HD 34" 1080i widescreen TV, with DVI connection. When connected, the player played my DVD's at 1080i on my TV, while at only 480i thru the composite cables.

On some older movies or series(I like Star Trek- TNG), it doesn't work well due to the transfer to the DVD. Most newer DVD's, such as Batman Begins (there is an HD out, but I have DVD only), improved on the upconvert for me nicely.
