Sony str da5300es


Standard Member
I have just got one of these and dont really know how to use it so if anyone can help i have a few questions.

The GUI doesnt come up on my tv over HDMI (a problem with these as far as i know) But will it come up on component or is there a way to fix this.

Is it possible to connect my tv so the picture runs through the amp and converts the pic to HD.

I have a dvd player and its supposed to upconvert to HD But its rubbish am i right in thinking the 5300 doesnt convert any source through hd connection.but if i connect the dvd with component it should convert to 1080p

Any help would be much appreciated i have looked through forum for the answers but couldnt find the answers thanks mark

I had a 3300ES until a few days ago. The GUI should show on the TV but the easiest way to get it up is to use the smaller remote - the manual should show you what to do.

What make is the TV? And the DVD player? A bit more info might help us to help you :)

I have set it up so the amp shows GUI mode and when i press menu a black screen comes up so it appears to be setup correctly just no menu.

the TV is a WLT66 toshiba and dvd player is a tevion dvd 8000 which is supposed to upscale dvd but the pic looks worse than standard TV

thanks mark
