Connecting a DVD Player/Set-Top Box via HDMI
This connection can only be made if there is an HDMI Output jack on the external device.
1 Connect an HDMI Cable between
the HDMI IN 1 (or HDMI IN 2) on
the TV and the HDMI OUT jack on
the DVD Player/Set-Top Box.
What is HDMI?
● HDMI, or high-definition multimedia interface, is a next-generation interface that enables the transmission of digital audio and video
signals using a single cable.
● Multimedia interface is a more accurate name for it especially because it allows multiple channels of digital audio (5.1 channels).
The difference between HDMI and DVI is that the HDMI device is smaller in size, has the HDCP (High Bandwidth Digital Copy
Protection) coding feature installed, and supports multi-channel digital audio.
➢ Each DVD Player/Set-top box has a different side panel configuration.
➢ When connecting a DVD Player/Set-top box, match the color of the connection terminal to the cable.
➢ When connecting via HDMI, you do not need to connect Audio Cables. You only need to connect Audio cables when connecting
➢ The external devices that support lower versioned HDMI mode may not implement sound output for the TV with the latest HDMI
version (HDMI 1.3).
In this case, connect to HDMI3/DVI IN and DVI IN [R-AUDIO-L] on the side panel of the TV.
➢ Part of lower versioned HDMI cables may cause annoying flickers or no screen display.
In this case use the cable that supports the latest HDMI version (HDMI 1.3).
