Question about Mitsubishi WT-46809 46" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Still no HD quality

DirecTV installed a new 5 LNB satellite dish as a free upgrade. The tech had a test set & tested the cable where it connects to the reciever. Good signal there. He wants me to upgrade to the HR20 reciever, but I am under the impression that that will only give me the local channels in HD. I still see no difference in quality when comparing TNT & TNTHD. I'm starting to believe that the TV is not HD compatible, although Mitsubishi markets it as such.

SOURCE: 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 order for you to receive HD broadcasting you must have a HD-TV, otherwise you wont get the picture in HD. Also I should point out that you need to make sure that the signal itself is being broadcast in HD.

Connect your component cables to the DTV connections.

OMG! Verizon Fios at it again with changing boxes! Well let me tell you if you do not loose signal on a DVD using these same inputs ITS NOT YOUR TV!

Whats going on is further into Verizon system you loosing the signal from the VDSL slam outside in the pill box. This thing will need to be replaced and they are going to blame your TV until you just give up and buy a new TV only to figure out its not your TV.

1. Call them back
2. tell them to check there network
3. if that dont work tell them to check it again
4. if you have HDMI use that instead of the scart connections.

I hope you have luck with Verizon Fios there internet rules but there TV service is sub par!

Is this tv hd ready?

Yes, it should be HD ready. There should be a small label on the front of the TV if so (provided it has not been removed). You will need a HD cable box, convertor or HD satellite box (Direct TV or Dish Network) to view HD broadcasts (even from free over-the-air HD broadcasts if you live within range of a local broadcasting station). I had the same, or very similar TV but upgraded to flat screen plasma set.

It could be the cable from the receiver to the TV. Check to see if the cable is an RG-6 and NOT RG-59 cable. Are you able to use RCA cables? They get much cleaner pictures and sound. If this still is a problem, you can get a small TV and connect it to see if the problem is still there! If it is, then your cable coming for the Dish could be bad. I believer the Cable Company will warrant that! I hope this helps...

Receiving HD from Dishnetwork

Hi. You will love the dish. I have enjoyed it in my home for a number of years. I like the HDMI cable because it is the best quality and simple to install, one cable does it all. If you don't have one yet get it at walmart where it is about half the cost of other retailers. All satellite TV is HD without you doing anything special. So yes, it will do HD from whatever input you choose.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525, and when the Directv installer came out, he said that he could not connect the box to my tv because he didn't know how to get my tv in HDMI mode. From what I am reading, it...

Your right connect the HDMI output from the directv receiver to an HDMI input on your tv. Change the tv input to the HDMI input and it should work. If your tv does not have HDMI input then it should have component input indentified as red blue green connectors on the back of tv. This is for video only. Connect the red and white for audio using the yellow/red/white cable that was included with receiver. The red blue green cable is also included with receiver as well as the HDMI cable. Did this installer educate you on how to use your directv equipment. If you are paying for HD access but your receiver is not connected the an HD input on your tv then you are not getting what you are paying for. This should of been resolved during the installation. The installer either is incompentant or just did not care. Call directv and demand them to make their receiver work with your tv if this means a field supervisor tech being sent out to correct this.

press services then system set up then signal test the signal strenth and qaulity should be about half way at least it shows up grey lock indicator should be ok if it shows not locked your dish has been moved and needs to be alighned do this when the weather is fine clounds and rain reduce the signal and may even stop it all together sky will charge you £65 to alighn the dish but you can buy a meter and do your self get 1 from bandq ebay maplins worth checking for breakes in the cable going from your box to the dish and if you can try your box on a friends dish just to rule out a faulty box of course there is a chance the lnb on the dish has gone faulty but you can get these cheap to or even borrow a friends to try unscrew the cable and look how it is fixed on useualy they just pull of but it might have a clip on or tape on

You need to upgrade to HD. Sd is going to look like you are playing 8-track quality sound on a cd player. Just not a good mix. You should be able to receive some HD chanels via your over the air antenna. Anothr great way to experience HD is to get a Blu-ray player and connect it with a HDMI cable.Your older DVD player may have 480p capability. That means it has a component cable on the back(Red Green Blue). You will still have to hook the audio up after that. Then go into your DVD menu and set it to progressive scan for a 16x9 widescreen. And buy widescreen DVD's from now on. They are made for that TV Good Luck. I reccomend Dish Network, or Direct TV. They both ave well over 100 HD channels and provide all the equipment for free. Once you go HD, you won't be able to go back!

No Audio

1. Make sure you have connected the cables from audio OUT on the Directv box to the audio IN on TV input 3 and have selected the correct source on the TV.

2. Many sat boxes have an audio volume control. Select the satellite box on the Directv remote and turn up the box's volume.

Hope this helps.:)
