DVD Won’t Show on TV


DVD Won’t Show on TV

I have hooked up my DVD player to my TV with the HDMI cable. DVD will not play on my TV. TV is Panasonic and is on U-verse. DVD player is SONY. What channel do I put my TV on to show my DVD’s?

Re: DVD Won’t Show on TV

You have to change your TV's INPUT (some call it SOURCE) to HDMI-1, HDMI-2, etc. that the DVD player is plugged into. Then you change it back when you want to watch your pay TV.


As a note this is the DirecTV forum, not U-Verse, but it would be the same answer either way as it is your TV set's setting regardless of what pay TV provider you have.
