Cabling -- Panasonic LCD TV into LG DVD player (model no. DV6812P)

Hi there -- we've just bought a Panasonic LCD TV and are having trouble cabling it up to our super-basic LG DVD player. The TV manual says to plug an RF cable from 'RF out' on the DVD to the antenna socket on the TV, then the aerial cable into 'RF In' on the DVD. Problem is, the DVD player only has a spot called 'Digital Out - Coaxial', which I am assuming is the RF out port. The only other ports are S Video Out and three other ones under the heading of Component Video Out. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks heaps to both of you -- both solutions worked -- but using the component ports does work a little better. What a great service! I am hooked.

If you have a Panasonic LCD then it should have 2 differnt types of High Definition inputs Componet inputs (green, red and blue) and HDMI. THe non-HD inputs are Svideo (looks like a keyboard input) RF(Yellow, red and white) and coax. When using a DVD player you will get the best picture out of componet and HDMI cables.

Digital COAx out is not something you will be using, its for a Reciever (home entertainmnet system) your TV doesnt have this input.

What i woudl suggest is using the Componet ports then you will need to use the red and whit cable to carry the sound to your tv, unless your TV accepts fibre optical input. you can also just use the Yellow cable instead of the compontet for the picture however there will be a quality loss in picture.

Take the basic Red, White, Yellow component cable -- plug it into the backside of the DVD player and plug the other side into the back of the t.v. Make sure to plug the right colors into the right sockets. If there are no available AV inputs on the back of the t.v, plug the other end into your cable box (if you have one).

Hello, process of elimination time. The most common culprit is the cabling. To eliminate that as the problem, test the cable on another device to see if it is delivering signal. If it is not, try another cable on any device to ensure that its a working component. This will also show that the TV connector is working properly as well. After finding a working cable that works on another device, your Panasonic should work. If you can not find a working cable, try the cables on another TV. Now the break down.

If you can not get the cabling working on any device, the cabling may be faulty.
If your cabling works on other TV's but not the one you tried before, you TV connectors may be bad.

If your cabling works on other devices but not your Panasonic, your Panasonic may be faulty.

Hope this helps.

Panasonic dmr-ez27 I just hooked it up to my 32"


I work for an electronics store in Australia, and had same problem when running this DVD player on my Samsung KA40A650.

I tried it on my brothers LA40M51 and the same thing happened. Tried it at work on the A650 display model and same thing again. Then I tried it on the LG LCD that was next to it, and no problems. Also tried the DV-S5950 display model at work and it did the same thing.

It's not a general Yamaha issue, as we bought a new (higher model) Yamaha DVD player and it worked perfectly fine. I also tested the cables, and it wasn't them either.

It seems that that specific model of DVD player from yamaha just doesn't like the HDMI inputs on Samsung TVs

You must hook up the DVD player in separate jacks into the TV with red, white, and yellow cables. To play the DVD player you must set the input in the TV menu

You want to connect the JBL's to the yamaha using standard speaker wire. Get a few HDMI cables and run one from the blu ray to the yamaha and from the yamaha to the tv. To use the JBL's for watching tv, get an optical cable or coaxial cable (either will work) and connect that from the tv to the yamaha and you are all set.

You only connect the hdmi cable to the tv - it takes care of both the video and audio to the set.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls set the Samsung LCD TV to the Source selection as if watching a playback evgen if you are going to do a recording.

Panasonic Viera 37 inch Plasma won't read DVD player

does the cd/dvd player have component hookups or are you just using HDMI cable, lots of tv's are having trouble with the HDMI protocol, I only use component cabling, it has HD capability up to 1080i resolution

This model supports the following formats: 1080i, 720p, 720i, 480p, 480i. Most likely it isn't the TV that is not allowing the 1080i resolution but rather your cabling or the inputs that you are using.
Be sure that that you have an HD signal coming into the TV. You may have to upgrade your cable subscription or if you already have the channels sometimes you have to tell your cable box to use 1080. The same goes for DVD players; they often default to only 480 to maximize compatibility.
The other area to check is your cabling. For the best results use HDMI or Component video.

If you have already checked both of these options let me know & I'll try to come up with some other options for you.

Too many Cables??

Firstly, let me address audio cables. Optical audio is the same (essentially) as a coaxial digital audio cable, just in a different form. Since you just purchased a Bluray player, you'll see an HDMI out on the rear. This is a high definition video and audio cable rolled into one (however it looks like your receiver does not support this). I would recommend running an HDMI cable from the Bluray player right to the TV, then run an optical audio cable (or coaxial digital) from the TV to the receiver. This will give you the best picture on your TV, and the best available sound through your receiver.

Depending on your DVD player and Bluray player, you might want to consider using just the Bluray player for DVD's and Bluray discs. If your plasma supports 1080p (or really anything better than 480i), you would most likely get a better picture out of DVD's since the Bluray player will upconvert the video to the better signal (of course this depends on your exact model of Bluray player). This will help to eliminate some cabling also.

Other than that, you're not going to eliminate much more cabling. If you really want to get tricky with it, pick up some split loom wire management and wrap them up with that. Be sure to run the power and signal wires separately though! Best of luck, and hope this has helped.
