    The HDMI connection on my SONY 46" LCD KDL-46S4100 produces a real low resolution picture. I mean Extremly Low, like real pixelated. I get same poor with DVD player / or Cable Box. I've tried a dif HDMI cables (Monster) same poor. Component Cables work fine, but my new DVD does Not support Component. I believe I've isolated the problem to be the TV. Don't know if it's just some dumb setting on the TV, or if there may be an actual prob with the TV. I'm about 6 months past warrenty.

It sounds like either the remote is bad, or this TV may have a "showroom" setting to keep people from messing with th TV while it is on display. I would download the manual to see if it mentions a showroom setting, if not, try a new remote

You would need to do a factory reset
From the Sony Forums:
factory reset to your Television.
  1. Turn on the TV.
  2. Wait approximately 40 seconds for the TV to completely start up.
  3. On the TV remote control, press and hold the UP ARROW button.
  4. While holding the UP ARROW button, with your other hand reach around the side of the TV and press and release the POWER button on the TV set.( not the power button on the remote) it should be the top button along the side panel.

How do you turn off TV?


Press the Power button on the remote control once, when the set it powered up. It will power OFF. If you want to power down totally, just switch off the main power at its panel.

    Need Dish DVR ViP722 remote code.


    If you are looking to have the Dish remote operate your TV, just do a random search for your tv. First, hold down the tv button on the dish remote until all the rest of the light up. Next press the tvpower button on the dish remote. Next, press the channel up button (this is the up arrow button) until the set turns off. When it does turn off, press the # key at the bottom right of the remote. The tv button will light and flash twice. That's it. Your done. Hope this helps.
