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

No, your TV is actually 720p.
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.

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box

Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

In most cases you will not be able to see a great difference between HDMI and Component connections. As far as not seeing a difference between HD and SD signals from your cable box, go into the settings of it and see what resolution it is putting out. If you have a Motorola cable box, with it off and the TV on press the menu button and the setup screen will appear. That will tell you the output resolution as well as what the 4:3 override is set to. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks....

check the tv setup menu for rf input mode [choices will be 'air', cable' and cable hrc'] usuallu when this is set incorrectly, the upper channels will be most affeced, and in most cases the video quality suffers- however, if the set is otherwise functioning properly, it is possible that this setting is not set for the signal you cable provider is sending. in hrc mode, some channels are shifted a half megahertz. good luck

I have an RCA television

Salutations mandi84,

It sounds like you may need to adjust what type of cable signal your TV accepts. Depending on how old the unit is there maybe a small switch near the cable input, or a option in your setup.

If its a switch your should have three options including STD, which is the standard setting which has adopted by cable providers.

In your menu you would be looking for an option for signal, or even a choice between Air, or Cable.

I hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

by befault your dvd recorder is transmiting signals via component video, so what you need to do is this connect both cable HDMI and Component or just a video cable then go into setup and then select video out via HDMI your video will go off on the screen and then with TV remote slect input source HDMI on TV and it should work fine.
