Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have 5 digital 8mm video tapes that seem to be corrupted somehow. They play back with a "stutter" or skip, pause, etc. The tapes appear to be OK but the digital content isn't being read correctly by my Sony digital 8 handycam. Can a high end digital 8 player have a better chance to read them? Can the content be recovered?

Yes it is possible that another player would be more sensitive and might read them. I would borrow or rent another camcorder/player locally and see if that is the issue.

The first step you sohuld take, in my opinion, is to have the cable company come out and test your line levels to make sure there isn't a lossy connection somewhere.  
You might also try rebooting your cable box by turning it off, unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.  I have this issue with the same box and I believe the problem may be that the live recording for pausing and rewinding gets bogged down after a certain period of time.  I've had four of these boxes and had this issue with every one of them.  They seem to have a problem when the cable company pushes an update sometimes that corrupts the firmware and causes problems (my fourth box just failed tonight, that makes four failures in about eight months).

Projected image is slightly oversized im 16 Standard Mode


The problem was with my cable providers (Knology) cable box settings. Somehow they had changed to zoom 1. I think this happened when I played a VHS tape. If this keeps happening everytime I play a tape or DVD I'll have to remember to reset the vidio on the cable box after each tape or dvd.

I have a samsung pn50a450 plasma tv. The top of the tv has "dancing?" pixels. I have a directv r15 dvr using s-vid out to a harmon kardon avr345 upconverting to hdmi out to the tv. I have...


I have the same set, SD satellite going into S-Video. Some channels on S-Video, as well as digital broadcast over the air, have noise at the top, in my case it looks like 'dancing' white line(s) With 'just scan' it is visible but if I do "4:3" or whatever the native aspect ratio is with the "p.size" button on the remote it goes away. Hope this helps. You might skipping the HK and go right into the S-video as an experiment. I have been reading that this set sometimes does not size properly with certain brands/types of equipment.
