Welcome to the forum, Jeff.

Is the DVD player set to output via component?

Welcome to the forum, Jeff.

Is the DVD player set to output via component?

> how can i find out? i can't see anything on the screen except "no input". i presume it's whatever the default is since i haven't changed anything.

Also, what resolution is the DVD player outputting? you have to change settings to get progressive so it's below that i presume.

> again, i presume it's whatever the default is.

> we're in a catch 22. i can't see the dvd settings since i can't display anything from the dvd. i may end up taking this stuff back. i don't know what else to do. can you help?

thanks. jw

Resolutions...

Jeff,

A few things to try. If you hook up the audio from the DVD player to the T240HD, does it work?

I'm assuming we already know that it will output on a regular television, but can you confirm this?

I found out today that for that panel, resolution would be any of the formats that the DVD player is likely to output, so that actually saves us a step. Some DVD players have a toggle switch on the back of the unit - check to see if switching that (if it exists) changes anything.

Keep me posted!
