I will try not to be too vague.Everything worked fine on my Sony trinitron tv
but on my new Vizio HDTV not so good.I guess caused by the non-audio ouput on the new one.I do have sound thru all my speakers when im on cable channels but I haven't been able to get the dvd player to play out my speakers.It is hooked up to the tv and plays thru that.


dvd player..basic panasonic from 2003

audio out L and R connections

coaxial connection

video out

component video out ..3 connections



basic panasonic receiver from 2001

has S -Video

digital in with optical and coaxial

Has dvd/dvd 6ch with a video in connection

has audio out front L and R


I tried a RCA audio cable from this(above) to my dvd player but I don't have an audio in on my dvd player so I guess that wouldn't work.If I used a coaxial
cable would I get sound? Is my receiver and dvd player too old to support my HDTV.

Thanks any help would be appreciated

Hi Steve, welcome to HTF! You have your connections backwards. You can connect your system in one of two ways -

For Stereo sound, connect DVD player Audio RCA Outputs (left and right) to the Receiver RCA inputs (front left and right)

For Surround sound, connect DVD Player Digital Coaxial Output to the Receiver Digital Coaxial Input

I would recommend using Coaxial, this will offer the highest level of sound quality in your setup

Cheers

I don't have a coax cable..I may try that also

I was checking the Blue Jeans cable site looking for a sub woofer cable
since my OVERPRIZED monster cable end plug came off.It a few years old but still..Anyway THANKS for your advice
