Question about Televison & Video

4 Answers

I have a protron 32" tv and need a cable for the back for the slot that reads HDTV. I can't get my hd/dvr cable box to work right. My tv has gone into PIP mode and I can't get it to work right. I used a hdmi to dvi cable. I kept the white and yellow for audio. Is there a cable i can buy for that slot?

    Simple jack (red and white). Back of tv has red and white jacks in ' AV in' and 'DVI in' (extension RGB)..TRY TIS..

    Right, heres where your problem is I think, for the red and white input
    sockets to work, the video signal has to be coming through the yellow
    video input because these only work when they are used together. To
    test if this is the case, use a video lead to connect a dvd player or
    video player to the yellow input on the back of the tv, then connect
    the audio jack from your computer to the red and white sockets next to
    it, then change the input on your TV until the dvd player/video player
    comes on screen, now play something using media player on ur laptop and
    this should come through the tv speakers.

Hi,

Initially, the yellow is often a composite video and not audio (white and red). Pls post back the exact model number of the Protron and the Cable box.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate your postback.

    Your basic concern cable to connect the DVI-D OUT of the Motorola HD/DVR to the DVI INput of the Protron PLTV-32, you would need a DVI cable available here, here or here for starters.

    However, you need to determine exactly what type of DVI connector is on the Motorola and on the Protron. This page or here will give you a better idea. Thereafter, it would be a matter of purchasing said cable as above indicated.

    Hi again,

    A temporary workaround would be to use the Component Video on both where in the connections would be with:


    • Y

    • Pb

    • Pr

    • L

    • R
    On your PIP concern:


    • PIP is only available when aspect ratio is Full;

    • The PIP button is bottom left (Selects the PIP mode: Off, Standard PIP, or PBP).
    Cheers.

I need to know what hooks on the back of the TV into the mother/sister to provide regular TV. Some sort of converter? Which kind?


The Protron PLTV-32 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). So you need a digital to analog converter to watch OTA programming. A basic d-t-a converter will give you Standard Definition output (480i) (either on the TVs antenna in or the composite in inputs).

Since the TV can show a high definition signal (720p), you could also use an HD tuner set top box. However, these are significantly more expensive than the $40-70 SD converter boxes that were sold for purchase with the government coupon last year. Alternatively you can use a DVR with a tuner as your set top box (computer with a tuner card) to the VGA or DVI inputs on the TV.

I hope this helps.

We upgraded our cable service and now have HD Digital service with a DVR box. Now the closed caption option will not work on the TV. We have checked all the settings to no avail.


Closed caption is an extra for the TV tuner you have it may not be on the set for HD ie: your set is now recieveing it's picture from the cable box and not your TV tuner probab;y by scart or SVHS cable , and the equipment you have may not have Closed Caption capability check with your network supplier .....

PS will it work if you go back to normal tv I think it might .? and if it does case proved ..

Close captioning on HDMI


The TV will not display closed caption with HDMI input. It must either over-the-air (antenna) or composite input for the TV to manage CC.

To get CC with HDMI from your Comcast DVR, you need to configure the cable box. Instructions can be found here:
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/How_to_use_a_Motorola_DVR/Setup

If you want CC all of the time, this works well. But since you must power-off the cable box to change the setting, switching CC on and off is a real pain.

Your set-up is similar to mine (Sharp Aquos 46" and Comcast DVR). I have the composite output from the cable box going to a DVD-recorder and on to the TV. Whenever I need CC (usually to catch some mumbled dialog), I just rewind the DVR, and switch the TV input to the composite input. Then I switch back to HDMI to continue watching in HD.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

My picture has a green and blue hue to it.


After spending a day trying to fix the TV, I found out the problem was actually with my cable box. I have an HD DVR recorder. We unplugged the cable box and plugged the TV directly into the cable in the wall and it worked. So we took the cable box back to our cable company and got a new cable box. (Can't live without the DVR!!)

Normal Picture Mode Not Available With Cox HD-DVR (Motorola DCH3416) and HDMI Cable


With an HDMI cable connected, the cable box determines the picture size. The settings on the cable box must be changed in order for you to get the correct picture size. I have some experience with Motorola cable boxes; usually to access the settings you turn the box OFF and then press the menu or settings button on the box to bring up the display menu. Hope this helps!

No HD picture


Protron (now SpectronIQ) says HD only works if the component cables are in Comp2 on the set.
