72 yr old newbie here asking for help.

Just got me one of those new tv's LG42LN540V and I want to connect up my Sky+ box also my DVD player.

The tv has 2 hdmi sockets and the other two has 1 hdmi connector. Can anyone please tell me what goes where and how, much appreciation in advance.

Welcome to HTF!I'm away from my computer so I can't check your TV manual just yet. I take it that between the Sky+ box and the DVD player, there is only one HDMI output? But the TV has two HDMI inputs?

I can't find out anything about that DVD recorder, other than it came out in 2008.

 

Does it have HDMI?

I am sure your DVD player has only a scart connection. I would maybe consider a more up to date option with HDMI. :)

Hi Ray, I'm back.  Your TV has only one HDMI input, but it also has a SCART input.  If your SKY+ box has HDMI out, you would connect it to the HDMI in of your TV with an HDMI cable.

 

As for your DVD player, I suspect it has a SCART output as stated above.  That being the case, you would simply connect it to the TV's SCART input with a SCART cable.  Not sure about where the audio goes on the TV, but there is an audio input, and you probably use that (with the usual red/white stereo audio cables).  Unless you connect your audio to a receiver for sound.  But you did not mention a receiver.

 

Edit: I see that there is a second HDMI input on the side of your TV, so if you get a DVD/blu-ray player with HDMI, you could connect it there.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Sam, sorry I,m late back, just to clarify TV has 2 HDMI, Sky+ has 1HDMI +2 scart,DVD recorder has 2 scart, sorry if I have confused everyone.

Thanks also to tele1962.

Does the TV have SCART?  If so, you can plug in your DVD recorder to it.

 

Use HDMI for the Sky+ box.

 

If the TV does not have SCART, consider getting a basic blu-ray player.  It will play DVD's as well, and use HDMI.
