I have a problem -

When I burn an HDTV movie i've downloaded, and put the disc in my Pioneer DV-400V, i can hear the sound of the movie but no picture appears, instead I just see the logo of Pioneer on the screen.

Could the problem be of the TV? (i have a Toshiba 32" 32WL66Es)

Please describe how the cable box or TV is connected to the DVD recorder.

just a simple HD movie i've downloaded from the net.

if u know - big_buck_bunny_1080p_surround.avi, it's a common one, for example.


the TV is connected to the DVD with and HDMI cable, by "MASTER". both TV and DVD have HDMI connectors.

Standard definition DVD players like the Pioneer cannot play (1080p) HD movies. Are you perhaps being mislead by the marketing statements that upconverting DVD player vendors are making about being able to upconvert to (near) HD quality?

No, it's written black on white that the DVD is playing HDTV (1080p).

I think the problem might me my TV, or else i don't know what it is...

HD DivX/XViD/DVD is not supported, where did you get this info from?


The maximal resolution for DVD/DivX/Xvid is 720x576 (PAL) /720x480 (NTSC).

This is why you only get sound! Your video have a to high resoulution!


How ever the player will upscale your DivX/Xvid/DVDs to 1080P.

Just because your DVD player is outputting 1080p (by upconverting from SD DVD resolution of 480i) to your TV does not mean it is capable of playing 1080p (or 1080i or 720p) HD sources. It isn't. So, one more time, a standard def DVD player is NOT capable of playing HD sources.

OK, so only 1 problem left for me -

if i download an HD movie from the net, how can i watch him? Is the only solution is to connect an HD cable from the computer to the TV?

That is probably the most flexilble solution.


You might check this search page for players that support the file format you want: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers


Note the checkboxes:
  • WMV9/WMV9HD
  • DivXHD/XviDHD
  • AVC/H.264
  • MPEG2HD/TS


AVI is a container format; you need to know what video format is inside the .avi.
