How to connect a Blu-ray player to a TV and Audio System

Last modified : Dec 14. 2018

Connecting to a TV

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.

Connecting to an Audio Device

2 Method 2: Connecting to an AV receiver with Dolby Digital or DTS decoder

  • You will hear sound only through the front two speakers with Digital Output set to PCM.

Please Note:

  • If you use an HDMI-to-DVI cable to connect to your TV, you must also connect the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT on the Blu-ray player to an audio system to transmit the audio signal (DVI only carries video signals).
  • Depending on your TV, certain HDMI output resolutions may not work. Please refer to the user manual of your TV.
  • When you connect the Blu-ray player to your TV using the HDMI cable, the Blu-ray 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, 1080p or 2160p 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), you may see random noise on the TV screen.
