If you had a box and ran it through the av connectors rather than the coax, that might get you a better picture.

There are focus adjustments on some models.

Brand new emerson led tv has this red tint to it. I have the cable hooked up to the at&t u verse cable box and just a basic cable cord going from the cable box to my tv. Would a hdmi cable fix this


You would definitely want to try using a HDMI cable.
Your current hookup requires signal conversion too many times resulting is quality loss and more chances of introducting errors and this might be where your red tint is coming from.
Assuming AT&T is providing you digital signal at 720 resolution or higher, the box then has to convert back down to composite video (340 resolution) in order to send it to your TV over the basic cable cord. Your TV then takes this low resolution signal and blows it up to fit your nice new flat screen TV.
Skip all that and use HDMI and you'll get the best picture that your provider is sending you. The digital input stays digital and is passed onto your TV over the digital HDMI cable with no loss to video or audio.

I pluged the cable line from the cable box into the"ant" section of the tv and it does not work? hooked RCA cables up and it work


Either the connector to the cable box or to the TV may not be hooked up properly.I am pretty sure you would have tried those over and over so either there is a problem with the cable box,or the antenna input connection on the TV.At least try disconnecting the cable from the box straight into your TV and check it,you should at least get basic cable stations as long as your cable is activated at least.If you do get basic cable,then the cable box is bad.If you do not get basic cable,either the cable is deactivated or the box is bad.If you are not sure how to get to cable TV options in your TV,you can try autoscan or please let me know and I will reply ASAP.Good luck!

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

TV will not turn on to channel 4 everytime. I have a cable box and need the tv to remain on channel 4.


As long as the tv is not unplugged it should stay on the same channel when turned back on. If you have the tv plugged into the cable box, when the box is shut off it basically unplugs your tv and the tvs memory is reset. The tv should be plugged in to its own outlet or leave the cable box on and turn off the tv. If you turn everything on, cable box and tv, and have a picture, go into the tv menu and auto program the channels, it should only lock in on channel 4 since it will be the only channel the tv will receive.

Blurry picture


In the store they use an HD source and connection. Is your cable box HD? It will have component or hdmi connections if it is.You have use either one to get HD everything else will be SD(standard def).And you have to be on an HD channel.Digital cable refers to how the signal is delivered doesn't mean its HD. SD channels on digital still look bad..

Picture quality


Are you viewing HD or standard definition.

Generally, LCD tvs don't do well with "standard" signals, since they're designed for HD.

You may get a slightly better picture by replacing the cable that connects from your TV to cable box, and cable box to wall. However, if you're not watching HD, it's unlikely that you'll notice the better cable making a big difference.

I'm getting cable channels but no high def


Your TiVo is only recording basic cable (i.e., channels it can receive without a cable box). You will need a digital cable box from your cable company to record channels above 99. If your TiVo is a Series 2 you will not be able to actually record in HD either. You should be able to record the HD channels from the cable box, but they will not be HD quality. (This is my current setup and while the picture quality is much better than basic cable, it pales compared to bypassing the TiVo and watching HD directly off the cable box to the TV.)
