Why doesnt your dynex HDMI cable fit in the HDMI port on your television?
All HDMI cables shoudl fit all HDMI sockets, but the mechanical size of the plugs jacket could be a problem if space is tight around the socket. Be aware that there are now mini versions of HDMI connectors (so-called type C). If your cable or connector are different sizes you can purchase type adapters.

Answer . Yes, depending on what you are planning on connecting to your television. If the device you are connecting has an HDMI output, HDMI is the only connection you will need. HDMI carries high definition audio and video.
Answer . Depends on the receiver. Some models have just a pass thru feature and connot decode the audio portion of the HDMI signal, and therefore will need a digital audio cable to get sound.. Some receivers can decode the audio, so you will need to consult your manual to see what they say. If …you need a audio cable it will tell you. ( Full Answer )
\nNo. Standard audio video cable connections work as well if not better, which is important given that most receivers and TVs have limited HDMI ports, which are usually maxed out by DVD, TV and PVRs
An HDMI cable connects digital audio/video devices to each other sothat data can be transmitted from one device to the other. Forexample, a DIRECTV receiver, DVD player, Blu-rayâ¢ Disc player, orsimilar device, to an HDTV. It allows the transmission of bothaudio and video data over a single cabl…e and it's a digitalalternative to analog cables like S-Video, coaxial, compositevideo, or VGA. HDMI cables are available at most electronics stores. To connect anHDMI cable from your HD DVR or HD receiver to your HDTV, just lookfor the port labeled "HDMI" on each device and insert the properend of the cable into each of the ports. ( Full Answer )
Both HDMI and DVI carry up to 1080p and are the two common domestic interfaces. If the signal source and the TV are both capable of handling 1080p, they will almost certainly have an HDMI interface. However, the fact that an HDMI interface is fitted to a device does not mean that it will handle 1080…p nor does it mean that it will handle HD at all - there are many SD DVD players that have HDMI but still only deliver SD material.

You need an HDTV for it to work and the TV has to have an HDMI connection. Then you need to turn your HDTV to the location for the HDMI that was connected
In order for the PS3 to work best on a HDTV you need to have or purchase either an HDMI or a component AV cable and connect the PS3 to the HDTV. The PS3 will play on a HDTV when it is connected with the AV cable that was provided, but it will not be in HD
In theory if your recording device has an HDMI input port, then it could because High Definition Media Interconect (HDMI) is a high speed digital link that carries both audio and video data.. In practice, as far as I know, no TiVo, DVD, or BluRay recorder has an HDMI input. In every case the HDMI p…ort is for output only. The very few recording devices that have an HDMI input impose restrictions that limit the usefulness of the connection. The consortium that created and licenses HDMI also imposes High Definition Content Protection (HDCP) on all HDMI devices. Video players, Cable TV, and Satellite TV Boxes boxes that output over HDMI all respect content protection requests from the source media by activating HDCP on the HDMI output. When HDCP is active, some devices refuse to record, some record only internally and only for playback, and some degrade HD video to SD. It has been asserted that some HDMI repeaters do not properly manage HDCP and have the effect of removing it. Since the tone of the question implies a quest for simpler cabling, it should be noted that a repeater adds complexity rather than reducing it. ( Full Answer )
\nThere are several different specifications for HDMI and more will follow in the future. Each of the specifications provide for certain data rates and the higher the data rate, the higher the resolution can be. HDMI cables are also rated for different data rates. However, it is not quite as simp…le as picking a cable to match the data rate.\n. \nCables will attenuate the signals (make them weaker) over a distance. The longer the cable, the more the signal is attenuated. For a long cable, expect the overall diameter to be greater than a short cable as this will help to reduce the attenuation. If the signal attenuation is too great, the image will not be received.\n. \nFor short runs, up to 6 feet or 2 meters, the attenuation is unlikely to be enough to cause a problem, whatever the image resolution might be. The final test is to plug in the cable. If it works, it's good enough. If it doesn't, it's not good enough.\n. \nIt is worth mentioning that both the line driver in the video source and the line receiver at the input play an important part in the signal transmission. A good receiver will cope with a longer cable run than a poor one.\n. \nTo summarize, try the cable. If it displays a signal, then do no more - the cable is good enough. ( Full Answer )
If the HDMI source is setup to output multi-channel audio and the TV is stereo then no audio will be heard. Simply set the source to output 2-channel PCM over its HDMI connection
Try putting your TV's input on HDMI then switch off your 360 pulg in the HDMI cord then put on the 360. THis should work.
Do you have to have an HDMI cable to have HD on your PS3 or can you connect it into the HDMI component on my TV?

You can with some laptops. Check to see if there is a HDMI input in your laptop.
With all domestic equipment on sale now, HDMI cables are needed to watch HD content from external receivers or Bluray players. Although early HD televisions had HD analog component inputs, they won't be found on new equipment. HDMI supports a copy protection system known as HDCP. This prevents the… HD signal being intercepted and copied to other media. Analog component signals don't have this protection and the industry has almost universally adopted HDMI as the single HD television interface. ( Full Answer )
Computers are increasingly using digital video instead of VGA. Many computers now have a DVI connector in addition to \nthe standard VGA connector. DVI carries digital video and happens to be the same signal format as used in HDMI cables. Using a DVI to HDMI cable allows most modern televisions t…o display the computer screen.\n. \nThere is one large difference between DVI and HDMI in that DVI connectors do not carry audio. If the computer has a DVI connector, there is definitely no audio carried. If the laptop has an HDMI connector, it may be the case that it still carries no audio. Some computers use HDMI as the video connector to save space but retain the DVI signal format, missing the audio signal completely.\n. \nIf this is the case, all is not lost. Most televisions that have an HDMI input also have an analog audio input connector linked to the same input. The setup menu normally allows a selection of digital audio (using the HDMI cable) or analog (using the analog connectors). If there is more than one HDMI input the analog option may be on just one connector.\n. \nIf this does not solve the sound problem, there might be a problem with the audio output on the computer itself. A search through the control panel help to eliminate the problem. ( Full Answer )
No.. HDMI cables will need an HDMI input and only HD capable TVs will have them.
Because HDMI carries digital data, any cable will carry the data as well as any other. The digital interface means that the data is recovered by the receiver with no loss whatsoever. If a cable is so poor that it won't carry the data well enough for the receiver to recover it, there will be no pict…ure at all. Any HDMI tested and approved cable will carry data flawlessly. All cables on sale should be made and tested to thos standards. Cheaper HDMI cables are likely to be light weight with lower quality connectors. They may eventually fail if they are being handled and unplugged continually but other than that, expensive cables have no benefit over the very cheapest of HDMI cable. ( Full Answer )
get a hdmi to vga or s video adapter See question How do you connect HD tv to a computer?
If you have and HD tv it will have that for hd. however you can't use hd unless you have a hd cable box. HD stands for High Definition
Both the source and the TV have to have a HDMI connector. If they don't, use the S-connector. No S- connector? you will have to use the VIDEO connection on the TV.
It would be in the group with most of the other audio/video connectors. It is a rather odd looking rectangle thing and clearly labeled.
Almost all modern televisions have an HDMI port built in. It normally suggests that the television is HD ready but there are examples of televisions that will only handle SD signals but still have HDMI inputs. As the cost of HD televisions continues t drop, the number of SD televisions being produce…d is also dropping. There will come a time in the not too distant future when normal televisions will handle HD and SD only televisions will become very rare in stores. ( Full Answer )
The PS3 end of the cable is always a HDMI plug and the other side goes to the TV. If you have a HDTV with a spot for HDMI input you purchase a HDMI Cable with a HDMI plug on both sides and use that to connect the HDTV. Some older HDTVs do not have an HDMI plug for input and instead have either S-Vid…eo or Component connections for input and then you purchase a PS3 S-Video or Component Cable to match what you need for your HDTV. The PS3 cable which has a HDMI for the PS3 side connects to the HD inputs on the side or back of your HDTV with the component or S-Video plugs. None of these connections can be made to a standard TV for that you need the A/V cable that came with the PS3. The standard cable can also be used on a HDTV until you purchase an optional cable.

It would be MUCH cheaper to get an HDMI adapter for one of your other ports. For example you might have a DVI or mini-DVI port. Keep in mind though that DVI is video only. If you only have a VGA output, you can get a converter box that can covert VGA output to HDMI, but your laptop likely will not… support HD resolutions. ( Full Answer )
Most computers can make use of an HDMI input on a television but it's not always possible. First, the computer must have either an HDMI or DVI output. DVI is a digital video port used on many of the latest computers. It is compatible with HDMI signals although DVI does not carry audio and the conn…ector is different to an HDMI connector. If the computer does not have a DVI port, an expansion card or a USB device can normally be used to add one. Next, a DVI to HDMI cable is needed to connect the computer to the television. Finally, a separate audio connector will be needed. Most televisions have at least one HDMI port with a separate analog audio input. Normally, the connector is a 1/8" jack connector. There is usually a menu setting on the television that will enable the analog input to be used Be aware that while most televisions will handle computer signals in this way, not all of them will display a computer image properly. As computers often use different display refresh rates than broadcast signal, some televisions will not recognize the signal. Experimentation may be needed to find the best display format for the computer. Note that VGA is an analog video signal and cannot be used with HDMI ports which are only digital. Some DVI ports are capable of outputting an analog signal as well as digital. If that is the case, make sure that the output is set to display digital signals. ( Full Answer )
Yes, believe it or not, you can use regular coax cable, s-video, etc to connect to your HD TV. Picture quality won't be so great but it will work. HDMI or component cables give the best PQ. There is one difference between HDMI and component that you may want to know about. Some DVD players will u…pconvert the PQ if they are playing a regular DVD to a near HD picture. If you are using a HDMI cable, you will see this on your TV. However component cables do not upconvert the signal. Not a huge thing and if I didn't mention this, you probably wouldn't notice.

DVI and HDMI are compatible interfaces for video (DVI does not carry audio so they are not fully compatible). The signals carry data that identifies the image format and size so the display can properly re-size the image to fit the screen. In this instance, it appears that the image size is not bei…ng interpreted correctly and the display is not sizing the image to fit. This is fairly common in the case of computer outputs which have many different resolutions that are not "broadcast" formats. As the source is using a DVI connector, it is likely that it is a computer rather than a games console or DVD player. If that is the case, try adjusting the resolution of the display output in the control panel of the computer. Some experimentation should help to find the right resolution to fit the display resolution. ( Full Answer )
How can you connect your ps3 to your samsung home theater and to your tv using HDMI cables and will my tv handle HDMI cables if my tv is 720p?
If your HDTV does not have a HDMI input you need either a component or S video cable also designed for the PS3 and purchased from a store like Target or Target.com. That cable has a connection for the PS3 on one side and a connection for your HDTV input on the other side and could cost $25. Some hom…e theater systems even include a blue ray disc player and the PS3 can be connected to those and the whole HDMI system will allow everything to work. MY Samsung HDTV is just an older 26 inch 720 P model and used only to watch during meals. It does have many input connections except they are for component, S video, and the regular A/V that came with the PS3 for 480i standard video. I suspect your HDTV does not have HDMI and you will need to purchase a special cable, but can use the cable that came with the PS3 until you do. Amazon.com has them for under $20 see related link . If you Home theater has the five color coded RCA plug inputs for a Component cable on the back you can try to connect the PS3 to it. ( Full Answer )
You can connect your DVD player, laptop or console to your television by using HDMI cables for high definition.

They sell 5 RCA style plug Component to HDMI connection cable for use with the PS3 and that cable can be used for any HDMI to component connection. ( Full Answer )
Every modern LCD or plasma television made in the last 5 years has HDMI. The first televisions to have HDMI were introduced in 2003.
Go to the place you got it from, get a refund, then get a different one that works.
You can get some good cables but you can also pay a lot more money that you need to for a HDMI cable. Shopkeeprs will try to sell you a Â£50 cable when you only need a Â£10 one, just because they get a large cut, more than by selling the TV itself!
Most all flat screen TVs have HDMI ports nowadays, as long as the tv is 720p or 1080p (it will say on the box) it will have one.
