Can't connect VCR to 1080p Samsung LED TV, but OK with Visio

I have a new 1080p Samsung LED LCD TV (UN55B800), with HDMI and component video inputs but no AV(red, yellow and white) input. I tried to connect my VRC and lower-resolution DVD to the TV and got no video signal. The new DVD machine with up-convert feature I have has HDMI cable, and works on my 720p Visio LCD TV, but not on the Samsung. Similarly I have the same problem using the component video connection. The VCR I have is the DVD/VCR combo (GO-Video). It has AV (no AV input on the Samsung TV) and component video. I used the latter, but got no video signal on the TV. I suspect this problem is caused by the 1080p resolution of the TV, since my DVD works with the 720p Visio through HDMI.
