Just got a second DVD player from Santa - LiteOn 5005 - and have connected it to my Hdtv system in the basement.
The system is BellExpressVu (Canada) 6100 reciever and Samsung 1080i HCP4741W projection tv. My hdtv feed is “Component 1” and works great on its own, but when viewing / recording thru LiteOn 5005 is much lower quality. I set it up last night and it all works fine, but I’d like to know how to improve recorded picture quality, or whether I’ve done anything obviously stupid - thx.
Current cabling set up (with pics in order ExpressVu reciever, LiteOn DVD, Samsung tv):
BellExpressVu satellite hdtv signal input to 6100 reciever box, then output as component video (Y/Pb/Pr) and audio L/R to Samsung TV. They input to Samsung TV as Component 1.
BellExpressVu 6100 box line output video (yellow/white/red) to Liteon 5005 DVD recorder as line in video.
Liteon DVD recorder line output video (yellow/white/red) and RFoutput to Samsung hdtv line input AV1 and RF input.
The tv also has s-video input althought this isn’t shown in picture.
