Question about Flat Panel Televisions

6 Answers

I have a samsung tv and 120hz doesn't work.

The info display says 720 x 480 @ 60hz. I have Dish network HD VIP722 receiver and no channels display 1080p or 120hz. I'm using the component video cables and running them through a Sony Str-DE695 and then to the TV. That receiver is 5 years old. Do I need to use the HDMI cables? The Sony receiver doesn't have HDMI inputs. Is Dish network not really 1080p? Does the 120hz only work with Blue Ray? Did I waste my money buying a 120hz TV? They advertise it on sports shows about how much better pic there is with fast moving action shows. Does the channel or station have something to do with brodcasting 120hz? There is a section in the user manual called (setting the auto motion plus 120hz). I gives you 4 5 options.
OFF switches auto motion plus off.
LOW sets auto motion to a minimum.
MEDIUM sets it to medium.
HIGH sets it to high.
DEMO displays a the difference between auto motion plus 120hz on and off by splitting the screen. I've tried all settings but none ever display 120hz on any channels. What setting should I use?

The 120 hz is the screen refresh rate and only some channels will be in hd and yes you wll need the hdmi input cable to get those channels that are in hd , even cable tv does not have all thier channels in hd , although they want you to believe that
even the s-video will give you a better picture than the component video , plus it only bieng one cord to plug in compaired to the three connections for video

Actually, you might call your current provider to inquire about having your current receiver updated. There is a good chance that getting a newer, updated box will solve your issue. Hope this proves to be useful.Have a wonderful evening!

To get HD you do need the HDMI cables, you are using just the RGB channel at the moment, plus none of you boxes have support HD, so no you can't watch TV in 1080i, 1080p or 720p. What you could do is subscibe to a decent cable company, ask them for a recordable digital reciever, and that reciever will have HD output, enabling the TV to be used to maximum capabilities

If you are using a powerstrip may not be supplying enough power to run the LG HDTV and your HD receiver. If you are using a powerstrip make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall. Otherwise this may be a grounding issue please reply if this doesn't work and we can look into some other possibilities.

This sounds like what may be causing it is the cable going from the tv to the receiver box. If it is only happening on the sat channels, you know that it's not the tv. I would replace the cable, if that does not work, then it may be that the receiver needs to be replaced.

Hi, when I turn off the power for the tv, the power keeps turning back on by itself every time I turn it off


I had the same problem with mine (same model) purchased Oct. 2010. I also have a Sharp 52 LCD. I was using an HDMI Splitter purchased from Monoprice to slave the Toshiba to the HD output of Dish's VIP722 receiver, because the 722 outputs only one HD video signal and on a separate RG6 connector outputs standard definition for a second display. Well, as the bedroom TV is usually tuned to the same channel as the family room TV, I decided slaving the VIP722 HD output was a better solution than paying Dish a monthly fee for a second receiver. To shorten this story; the problem seemed to be caused by the HDMI splitter. I purchase a higher price splitter from Comp USA and when I connected it the problem disappeared. I hope this helps you. Oh, I feed the outputs of the splitter to two separate Yamaha (models 667 and 367) AV amps and from the amps to the TVs.

Program sony remote to operate dish vip722


The Sony RM-YD029 Remote control will work with the Dish Network VIP722 DVR HD Satellite Receiver, but the Dish Network VIP722's Primary remote address must be set to 1.

The procedure below will allow Sony RM-YD029 remote control to operate Dish VIP722.

Using the Dish Network Remote Control -
1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page
2. In the system info page the primary remote address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that says IR and indicates you the channel your remote control one is configured. The Sony RM-YD029 will work when this primary remote address number (in the white box) is set to 1.

If the Primary Remote Address of your VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:

1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds.
2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote
3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote
4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting)
5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page

Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your Sony remote control per the instructions in the manual or Sony's web site. My 722 works with Sony IR code - 01775.

Need Dish DVR ViP722 remote code.


If you are looking to have the Dish remote operate your TV, just do a random search for your tv. First, hold down the tv button on the dish remote until all the rest of the light up. Next press the tvpower button on the dish remote. Next, press the channel up button (this is the up arrow button) until the set turns off. When it does turn off, press the # key at the bottom right of the remote. The tv button will light and flash twice. That's it. Your done. Hope this helps.
