[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung LN32A450. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I studied the back panel of the 3 devices I am tryong to connect. I thought I had it figured out. But I cannot play back from the VCR, of the DVD/VCR combo.
Please help. It’s driving me nuts.
Devices: & respective back panels
HDTV: Samsung LN32A450
DVD/VCR Combo: Toshiba DVR 610
DVR/Converter: Scientific Atlanta 8300HD
I connected them as follows:
Charter Cable to SA8300HD Cable IN
8300HD to Samsung LN32A450 via HDMI
8300HD to Toshiba DVD/BCR Combo
Video via S-Video
Audio via RCA into DVD/VCR Audio IN (L & R)
DVD/VCR to HDTV
Video: Component Video Out to HDTV Component Video IN
DVD Audio OUT to HDTV Audio IN via RCA
Eveything works fine, except the VCR part of the Toshiba Combo. I get an error on the HDTV screen: “HDMI/DVI Blocked.” DVDs play fine (haven’t try recording), but the VCR just gives me a blank (blue) screen and an audio hum.
I am seeking help, desperately - this was supposed to have been a Christmas present for my wife. Now my word is mud. We haven’t even got to programming the universal remote.
