Can anyone help to set up my new HDMI TV ?

  [email protected] 11:52 19 Aug 2007

... or redirect me to a forum that can please? I know this is a PC forum but you have helped in the past with TV setup probs!
I have a Samsung Flat screen LCD TV with 2 Scart and three HDMI connections.
a DVD Recorder with HDMI and scart connections
a Home theatre surround sound dvd player with scart connections and a sky plus box with scart connections.
I am a mass of wires and cables and am confused with this- if I connect the DVD-R using HMDI do I use av1 or AV2 (scarts) for the home theatre and the skybox?
A diagram would be best but I can't find one that works in the HDMI connection.
If you could help save my sanity I would be very grateful!!

Thank you all, there is a booklet with the tv but it doesn't really show setting up the system with other parts!

Sky 'tv out scart' to tv's 'AV1 Scart'

DVD Recorder's Scart (AV2) to Sky box's Vcr scart.

Then dvd's HDMI to TV's HDMI 1.

You will also need to set the dvd's upscaling to 1080i or 1080p.

Also set the Sky output to 16:9 RGB.

Thanks- have connected it up but the picture isn't brilliant at the moment- there are so many settings to sort out :(

When I set the skybox to RGB out put everything goes green- any suggestions where I am going wrong? Thanks!

Hi Debe - wondered if you ever got sorted out? Do you have any problems with compatibility between Sky HD and Samsung TV?
