Connect a Blu-ray Player to a Samsung Smart T.V.

Last modified : Jun 03. 2020

Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI OUT jack on the back of the product to the HDMI IN jack on your TV. Make sure you plug the power cable into the Blu-ray player after you have connected it to the TV/Audio System.


If your TV won't take a HDMI connection, you can use a HDMI-DVI cable to connect your Blu-ray player to the TV, but you will need a separate Audio cable to transmit the audio signal. DVI connections are only capable of transmitting video signals.


  • Do not connect the power cord to the wall outlet until you have made all the other connections.
  • When you change the connections, turn off all devices before you start.

Connecting Blu-ray Player directly to T.V.

Blu-ray player connection to TV

Please note: Depending on your TV, certain HDMI output resolutions may not work. Please refer to the user manual of your TV.

●      When you connect the player to your TV using the HDMI cable or to a new TV, and then turn it on for the first time, the player automatically sets the HDMI output resolution to the highest supported by the TV. 

●      A long HDMI cable may cause screen noise, if this occurs, set HDMI Deep Colour to Off in the menu. 

●      To view video in the HDMI 720p, 1080i or 1080p output mode, you must use a High speed (category 2) HDMI cable.

●      HDMI outputs only a pure digital signal to the TV. If your TV does not support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), random noise appears on the screen.
