SOURCE: i purchased a SANYO-DP46848 42"HDTV.

I just got the same exact one, when it searches automatically the first time it doesn't look for digital channels. go to Menu>manual channel search>cable. it will look for all possible signals and will take forever probably. the free digital channels will take several seconds to switch channel to channel, but they're there! They will show up on your screen as "DC 91-2" or similar. you can switch back to regular cable channels with the input button, you just cycle through all the inputs. hope that helps.

SOURCE: HDMI failure Samsung HL-R5087W 50 in HDTV

After reviewing the service manual for this set, the problem is is in the DIGITAL BOARD. To get the right Digital Board you will need the Version number of the TV.

Good luck

I would suggest calling your cable service provider. I just purchased the same TV and experienced the same problem/question. I have ATT Uverse and called and spoke with technical support. They said that you need a HDMI cable and the cable settings need to be set to HRC (High Resolution Compatible) or someting like that. The other 2 settings are analog modes! I had mine originally set to STD I just randomly picked this setting and had my TV conected to the cable box useing a coax cable, this is why it looked strange. I hope this helps? I will be picking up a HDMI cable on my way home from work today and will change my cable setting on my Samsung to HRC. If this does not fix the problem I will repost tomorrow, but I am sure this is the solution. Happy viewing!

Hi!
No, your TV is actually 720p.
http://reviews.cnet.com/projection-tvs/samsung-hl-r4266w/4507-6484_7-31335747.html
I confirmed this at Amazon as well.
I don't think the problem is with your TV. The HDMI input should automatically reset themselves based on the supported signal coming into the port. That's the beauty of HDMI. It sounds like the problem is that when you selected 1080p on the DVR, it stuck and now since you don't have display on your screen, you can't put it back. My experience with this unit (and I've had it for 5 years) has been when you unplug it, it goes back to transmitting ALL resolutions and if that doesn't work, call tech support at the cable company and have them reset the DVR remotely. This should get you back to normal (I'm really surprised that they didn't suggest this). That is assuming that yours uses Passport Echo interface. Most providers who use the SA 8300 have switched over to the Passport Echo interface but if yours hasn't (which would be odd considering that their boxes are now handling 1080p). If you don't have the new interface, you're going to have to have you provider walk you through the steps to manually reset your DVR back to the default settings. It can be done with a combination of buttons on the front of the DVR, i jsut don't know how to.
I'm very curious as to who you cable provider is because the fact is that there are no channels, major network or cable, that transmit their programming in anything above 720p/1080i due to the incredibly high bandwidth that a 1080p signal uses. Cable companies lack the infrastructure to handle that amount information. If your DVR's software has been upgraded to support 1080p resolution, it must be up-converting the 720p/1080i signal.

I had comcast before but now i don't ,don't use a converter box and somehow I was getting cinemax and other channes on the tv,now i am not I auto programmmed the tv again and mess the the channels...


> I had comcast before but now i don't, don't use a converter box and somehow I was getting cinemax and other channels on the tv
Comcast was providing Cinemax and many other channels as part of your paid services and you will not receive these unless you are a subscriber. There is a good selection of free broadcast channels unless you live outside city areas. If you do, you will then need an external antenna and probably an amplifier to get more distant signals. Auto programming will not find the channels you were receiving from Comcast so there will be only accidental channel duplication; for example, if your former channel 10 was NBC, it may be channel 7 when receiving signal from an antenna.
There are essentially no more 'Analog' stations still broadcasting, they are now all 'Digital.' The abbreviations 'Std' refers to the aspect ratio (H/W) of the picture area and 'Hrc' and 'Irc' the available resolution or how many pixels and lines on the screen.

I have a Jensen TS2750J model ... am trying to hook up and be able to process the HD that the home I rent a room from receives that signal from their cable company ... but don't know how to get my TV...


Hi.

The setting on your tv for the best signal is the HRC setting.
HRC stands for High Resolution Cable.

If you connect the cable to the blue jack, and set your tv to HRC, when you scan for stations, it should pick up all of them, not just the analog cable stations.

Now, some cable companies require an additional adapter, provided by them, in order to recieve the cable signal properly.

This adapter is called a digital transport adapter.

You should contact the cable provider, and see if the adapter is required in order to recieve their signal properly.

I hope this helps you out.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

What is the difference between HRC, IRC, Std and Auto when scanning channels - I hate the new digital TV world - it has total confused things - I have comcast cable


Usually standard broadcast is is the default setting,some other cable company use HRC and URC, these are ways to transmit or deliver their signal trough cable wire,ask comcast cable for their transmission type.

Screen remains blue with "no signal" written on it, inspite of a cable connection and, of course, the input set to cable


Probably a bad video processor board

But, 1st try using a different type of Cable such as IRC, STD, or HRC different freqs and channels

Also, try using a vcr or dvd on one of the inputs to see if that works
