Samsung is a sponsor of a great site,www.wirewize.com. You enter what components you have, and wirewize tells you how to hook them up. The problem you're having is described in your MANUAL under "selecting the source." You can choose ONLY those external devices that are connected to your TV. Another thing you'll run up against...you'll have to run an optical cable from tv to receiver to get 5.1 surround when you have your dvd player connected.
I need help!!!!
I am trying to connect my cable (comcast) and my DVD player (Sony) to my HP-P4261 Samsung TV but most of the components are greyed out on the menu screen.
I only have 4 options that are not (DVI, STD, Audio-1, PC) and the others are all greyed out. The cable technician let me know that this is why the cable isn't working (it works in my bedroom) and that there is a way to turn back on all of the components.
