How to Connect A TV to a Blu-ray® or DVD Player

Connecting your TV to a Blu-ray® or DVD Player is simple!


Step 1: Plug the HDMI cable into the Blu-ray or DVD player.

Step 2: Plug the opposite end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on your TV.

Step 3: That's it! Make sure to select the correct input on your TV to connect with your player.

As of 2014 there were over 4 billion HDMI enabled devices worldwide! With that many devices it's easy to understand why HDMI is the universal connector for home theaters and conference rooms around the globe. HDMI supports the latest features and provides a better picture (4K resolution, 3D video, and 21:9 video support), better sound (Dolby TrueHD audio support), and requires less connection points than previous cables which often required separate video and audio cable.

Wondering which HDMI cable is right for your application?

Choose from high speed or standard speed cables designed for source to device connectivity. Connect 4K, Ultra HD or 3D video devices.

Choose select HDMI cables if you are planning to hide a cable in the wall or ceiling. Select HDMI cables are coated with flame-resistant insulation and are rated for in-wall applications.

Ultra-flexible cables are ideal for connections in tight spaces. This type of cable has low profile insulation and compact connectors.

If you are mounting a flat screen TV on the wall, consider using an HDMI cable with a rotating connector. The rotating connector provides a flush mount and enables easy cord management.

Choose active HDMI cables when you need to extend HDMI signals up to 100 ft. This type of cable is especially popular when a source is far away from a display.
