Yes, you can connect the HDMI Cable from the Blu-ray Player to the TV directly and then, connect the Digital Optical cable from the Blu-ray Player to the Receiver.

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Have a HD cable set-top box and a blu-ray player both of which would be better with HDMI input and of course an HDMI out to the TV. But the NAD T742 doesnt have any HDMI in/out. Any idea how I can fix...


If this is your system;
http://www1.epinions.com/specs/pr-NAD_T742_5_1_Channel_Home_Audio_Receiver
It has two "digital optical" inputs for sound. The video doesn't need to pass through the receiver so, your HD components, box and Bluray player, should hook to TV directly then, providing your TV has digital optical out, you could run your audio out of the TV from a digital optical out, to receiver. This would allow you to select your video through your TV's menu and the sound would come through the receiver through the one input. You can pass your video through the receiver but, it doesn't have the best outputs to handle it. You also may notice lags beteween the audio and video if you go this route.

Can not get bluray to get signal to TV, have it all hooked up w/ HDMI cables-worked on old bluray, new one is Panasonic.


you can but not direct, your tv must have scart in or svhs input, or a hdmi input (on component video out), or you can test with cd\dvd out section.

Note is 3 ways to send to tv. (component video),Monitor, or CD\DVD

The component video is controled by receiver selection menu (as normal output), the monitor is sample from 2nd level menu (as receiver next step) and CD|dvd is what is bypass from CD\DVD INput)

Optical carries only 5.1 sound, no video. HDMI carries both video and sound. If your receiver doesn't have HDMI, check your TV for optical output. You can go BluRay to TV via HDMI, then TV to receiver via optical.

If you don't have optical out on your tv, you're going to need either a receiver with HDMI or a BluRay player with component output (blue, green, red).

HDMI connection with Panasonic DMP-BD35K Blu-Ray Disc Player


Try hooking the Panasonic up straight to the tv without going through the receiver. If it displays a picture its obviously not the blu-ray player. May also be a problem with the HDMI cable itself. Hope this helps.

Connecting blu ray to surround sound receiver to tv


Hi, I have just completed this installation myself.
You are correct, HDMI to Amp Input from Bluray and then HDMI from Amp output to TV. Coloured cables are not required to operate the bluray now.
Good luck

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy
