Question about Hitachi 46F500 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Hitachi 46F500 will not recognize a Playstation 3

I am trying to connect a Sony Playstation 3 (Blu-Ray player) to the front input on my 46F500 TV, but the TV does not display anything. Is there a specific input that I have to use, or is this TV not compatible with the Playstation 3 system?

Thanks, in advance, for your help.

It is my understanding that the 46F500 HD Ready only goes to 1080i and for Blu Ray you need 1080p. There are no ports for this format.

Can I use a blue ray with my tv?


Blu-ray players can be connected and used with any Television that has at least Composite video inputs. But the only way to access the high def is through either a HDMI connection or your Component Video connections. You DO need an HD compatible TV to see any benefits of Blu-ray. Check the back of your TV your RCA model should have 1 set of the Syncroscan HD component input jacks and be sure the Blu-ray player has the component out jacks since they are being phased out.

Just be aware of the following:

As of January 1 2011, all Blu-ray players that reach the market will be Image Constraint Token enabled as per the industry AACS Adopter agreement. What this means is that new Blu-ray players will only be able to output high definition content over HDMI. Film studios will be able to embed an Image Constraint Token on their Blu-ray discs restricting the Blu-ray player from outputting the image in HD over an analog output, such as component. Instead, images will be sent over component will be constrained to a maximum resolution of 540p.

The move is part of a strategy that is designed to move consumers to digital-only connectivity so that by 2013 all analog outputs on Blu-ray players will be phased out. Studios have not been permitted to embed this technology into Blu-ray discs prior to December 31 2010, so discs purchased prior to this date will not have their image constrained. However, users will now need to look for the Image Constraint Token on the packaging of Blu-ray discs released after January 1 2011, if they still rely on component out for their Blu-ray player.

Hooked it up to a blue ray player, no cable at all, just the blue ray, and i get no sound from the tv, just a picture


Hi,
To connect the Blu-ray player to the TV, connect the Video OUT of the Blu-ray player to the VIDEO 1, VIDEO 3, VIDEO 4 port on the TV using the "RED/WHITE/YELLOW" Composite cable to get both audio and video. You may also connect the "Component OUT" port of the Blu-ray Player to the VIDEO 5 and VIDEO 6 port on the TV using the (Red/Blue/Green/Red/White) Component cable to get both audio and video from it. If you have any questions on connectivity, you may wish to reply with your query.
Thanks,
Pradeep

I have a Playstation 3/blu ray player and I don't know how to get hi def video on a samsung hln467w


Your TV only has a DVI input, not an HDMI which PS3 has as an output. You can buy a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect the HDMI out of the PS3 to the DVI input of the TV. To get the true HighDef video you need a HDMI input on the TV to enjoy the full capacity of the Blu ray capabilities of the PS3. DVI came out before the HDMI standard and your picture will look good but not like HDMI. I have the same problem with my samsung 65 inch. I Bought the wrong technology. I hope this helps and good luck!

Connectivity of a Blu-Ray Disc Player


Both should have a variety of different connection means; the standard red, white, yellow marked RCA type inputs, possibly S-video with separate audio (that would be the red, white mentioned before), possibly DVI.
Looking at the manuals for both or the available inputs on each, you should be able to match up the differing systems without problem.

Screen flicker when selecting Blu-Ray player w/ HDMI-1 selected.


Something to remember is that most HDMI setups on TV's have what is called a DVI/HDMI port, I would suggest not using anything on that port that isnot converted from DVI to HDMI. I bet if you look, that HDMI 1 on yours....
