Sony Bravia and HDMI connection questions

Posted by mattw2us (My Page) on

I just bought a Sony Bravia 46" LCD TV 1080, 120hz. I connected the hd cable box to the TV with an HDMI cable and I will soon get another to connect my DVD to the TV. My question is do I need to continue using the old cables (3 video and 2 audio) or does the HDMI cable replace those? Also are there any recomendations to get the best picture possible on an expensive TV like this one? Thanks all!

HDMI replaces the component (R, B, G) and audio (R, W) cables -- it carries audio and video and provides the best quality connection between the components and the tv.

RE: Sony Bravia and HDMI connection questions

Will the picture improve if I unplug the (RBG) (RW) cables?

RE: Sony Bravia and HDMI connection questions

You don't need them both and it's possible that having them both connected will "confuse" the TV--it won't know which feed to use for a given input.

RE: Sony Bravia and HDMI connection questions

I have a Sony Bravia 32". I originally had the component connections, then went to a HDMI/DVI connection. While the picture is slightly better, I have intermittent taping problems (HDMI copy protection comes up on screen). I also get volume problems. I'm going back to the components and see if the problem corrects itself.

RE: Sony Bravia and HDMI connection questions

If at all possible, use the component connections. HDMI has many problems with intermittent loss of video and audio.
