In the PS3 menu, open Settings > Video Settings > BD/DVD Audio Output Format (HDMI) or (Optical Digital) depending on which one you are using. Set the type to to Bitstream (Linear PCM does not send the DD stream through).

You may need NTSC-PAL/PAL-NTSC converter. This may solve your problem.

I have a daenyx lcd tv, model DN-15, input 12VDC-4A and am trying to hook it up to an xbox 360 console.


If you are using the Red/Yellow/White cable, that's composite cable, but if you're using the one that's Red/Yellow/White/Blue/Green, that's called component. So basically, you set your TV's input to the corresponding color match. 5 colors: Component, 3 colors: Composite.

Connecting my new samsung blu-ray player (bd-fm57c) to my toshiba theaterview tv.


I don't think that cord will work. HDMI carries video and audio signals, you might get video but probably no sound. You might as well try anyway though so here goes... The red green and blue plugs are your video and the other red plug and the white plug is for stereo sound. The yellow plug is just a lower quality video plug. So plug in the red blue and green plugs into the component video inputs on the TV then the red and white plugs into the audio inputs. DON'T plug in the yellow plug. If this doesn't work go to your local home theater store and ask for a receiver or switcher that will downscale high def HDMI to component video and stereo audio. You can probably pick up a cheap one for around $100. Good luck!

When I play a gane the sides of the screen cut off


If you have a widescreen TV, your resolution is likely the cause of this. See if your TV has a resolution setting in its menu. Don't worry if it doesn't, some TV's only have one default resolution.

Check what type of cable you are using to connect to the TV. If you are using composite cables (red, white, and yellow) and you have a flatscreen/HDTV, you should switch to component or HDMI cables. (Your Xbox may have came with component cables. They are the red, green, and blue ones, if it did and you aren't using them, use them.)

Once you're using component or HDMI, the problem should be solved. If it is not, change the resolution on the Xbox. To do this, go to System Settings > Console Settings > Display and mess around with the settings in that to find out what works for your TV.

My tv is a sanyo ds31590. I need to connect to an acer aspire 5253-bz692 in order to watch netflix. What cable do I need?


You'll need a VGA to Composite or Component Cable. Asuming you have RCA Composite/Component Connections on your TV.

I'll Look something like this:
funnyx_1.jpg VGA to Composite
or
funnyx_2.jpg
VGA to Component
Make sure you TV has @least one of these 3 colored group inputs in front or in back of it. 1. Composite (Mono): Yellow, White or Red
2. Composite (Stereo): Yellow, White, Red 3. Component: Red, Green, Blue
If you don't have any of those then you'll need This Along with a Splitter.
Hope this helps, if it does then please remember to leave Feedback/Testimonial.

Good evening, My son has been using his Playstation 3 on a TV with a resolution of 1080p. Now he is trying to use the console on a lower resolution TV. Can you tell me how he can reset his console so he...


OK if hes connecting it to a TV with a red/white/yellow cable then you need to connect it to the 1080p TV again with the hdmi cable but with the red/white/yellow cable on the same tv at the same time. Then in display settings switch it to the red/white/yellow cable setting and thats it. It should be good for the red/white/yellow cable TVs.

If its a TV with hdmi but more like 720p then just use the 1080p tv and go to settings then switch to 720p and there.

Sorry if this is confusing.

How do i hook up my xbox 360 to the Sharp Aquos


You have a few options actually. depending on which 360 you have you have at least 3 ways to connect; 4 if you have CDMI cable output on Elite 360. you only need to pick one though. easiest is the plug with one yellow and a red and white. the yellow is the video and the red and white are the left and right audio. You can use the red green blue plugs choice if your tv has that input. in that case the red green blue are the video and you use the other paired red white for audio. You can use the S video connection (the round one that looks like a mouse plug) for video. You can use the HDMI (flat, looks like giant USB slot) for really high quality video. So, basically just use whatever cable you happen to have. If you still have questions, please ask as we will definitely get you hooked up for sure:) farmerbear at FixYa

Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

How to connect to TV


The Yellow/Red/White connectors are Composite+Audio
Yellow carries a composite signal and Red and White Carry left and right audio channels.

Red Green Blue Connectors are Component
Each coloured connector carries one 'component' of the picture

So yes, your extra set of red white yellow cables would be fine to use, just make sure you connect the same colors at each end red-red green-green blue-blue

However..... the red green blue only carry the video, you will still need to carry the Audio, this is usually done either by the red and white (L & R stereo) or your DVD may also have an optical or coaxial output to carry the sound. if there is no equivalent connector on the TV then you may be stuck swapping the red/white cables, usually though there would be 2 sets of red/white connectors one set to go with the yellow, one set to go with RGB.

Using the device from the cable outlet


Not a stupid question. You should have received all the cables you need with the Leap Frog. To hook up your tv, take your transmitter and one set of a/v cables, usually red, white and yellow. Do one cable at a time. Your tv outputs should be color coded. You should have one set of three jacks completly open on the back or side of your tv, i.e. labeled component 1, component 2, aux 1, etc. First plug select one set of jacks. Plug a yellow plug into the yellow jack on your tv labeled video out. Plug the white plug into the white jack labeled audio L out. Plug the red plug into the red jack labeled audio R out. Now do the same on the transmitter but the jacks should say in. Yellow, white and red to video, audio L and audio R. Now take your receiver into the other room and do the same thing with the other tv. The cables go from the receiver out jacks to one set of jacks labeled Aux, component, etc like before. Pick a set that has all three open. Red to red, white to white, yellow to yellow. Make sure you then have the transmitter and receiver plugged in. Your remote is supposed to work from your other room. If this solved your problem please rate this as fixed. If you need more help with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you. Thanks.
