On any High Def TV, the reciever you need for this set, which does not have a HD receiver in it, is half the equation. Most HD channels have some HD content mixed with SD content on the same channel. SD content on HD signal from cable or satellite tends to be slightly blocky due to the native signal resolution and the resolution of HD (1080i/p or 720i/p).

SOURCE: digital array

that is for adjusting the colors center , you should not use this unless the colors seem off center and then you may make it worse if you do not know what you are doing , this is really for a tech to do adjustments

SOURCE: picture format


The HD reciever shouldn't be the problem.

If you recieve an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image will be displayed at that ratio on your HDTV unless you specify otherwise. To do so go to your TV's Setup screen

setup
Choose picture formats
select smooth wide as your default

***Some digital (ATSC format) stations may transmit 4:3 images in a way that will not allow expansion. You will be unable to adjust the picture format.

Hope this helps!!!

I have an Apex digital 32" LCD TV Model LD 3249 and Serial #36056009262 Is this a high definition TV


Yes. 720p High-Def capable.

Remember you have to have a High-Def signal source to actually view High-Definition video. This means local broadcast TV in HD or digital cable TV with HD service and a HD channel or satellite or a Bluray Disc.

I have a 50" hitachi rear projection tv, do i need


rozmyers,

You do not need a high def receiver, your unit has an ATSC tuner which is the same thing. You do need to hook it up to a high definition signal. You mentioned that you have satellite. Call your supplier and order the high definition channels if you do not already have them on the downlink. They should be able to tell you if you have them or not. They should also be able to tell you which channels they are (normally the higher ones). Once you have a high definition feed you will have the best picture you are going to get with todays technology.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial.

Its like the tuner is not working


PROBABLY A BAD "HYPERUNIT" FAILURE. IT IS THE DIGITAL SCAN CARD FOR THE TV IT IS WHAT MAKES IT HIGH DEFINITION. IT DOES ALL THE VIDEO AND AUDIO PROCESSING FOR THE TV TRY TO HOOKUP A HIGH DEF SOURCE MAYBE A GOOD DVD PLAYER OR HD CABLE BOX AND IT MAY LOOK BETTER FOR WHILE BUT WILL FAIL ALL TOGETHER SOONER OR LATER.

Model LG52LG70 has a problem when switching from High Definition channels to non-high definition channels, and vice a versa. The tv simply shuts off, pauses for 10 seconds and then turns on. Time warner...


Any high def TV will momentarily go blank when changing from High Def to normal mode. Ten seconds is an abnormally long time for that to take place. If you still have a warranty on the TV I suggest you take it in to have it serviced. Otherwise you will have to pay to have this item checked out. There are a number of issues that might be causing the problem so it will be necessary to have a technician check it out.

Digital ready?


Deacon J,
You will need a digital converter box OR high definition tuner for the transition. What's the difference? A converter box will only output a standard definition signal, either on channel 3 or by composite or S video cables. A high definition tuner will allow you to watch the new digital broadcasts in hi-def, assuming they are transmitted in hi definition. The converter boxes are the cheaper option and you can get a coupon from the government for a $40 rebate on the box, but I would opt for the hi-def tuner fo the better picture quality.CNET has a good write up on the transition here:
http://www.cnet.com/1990-7874_1-5108580-3.html
I did some looking and about the cheapest hi-def tuner I could find was $150, which is 3 times what a converter box would cost. I would expect the cost to fall on the tuners over time. Perhaps a converter box may be a good solution until the prices fall, if they do. The problem is that not many companies are making the tuners, as most TV's already have a hi-def tuner built in, so there isn't a big market for the add-on tuners. I hope this answers your questions.

Display delay


This is unlikely Verizon's problem.

Does the delay occur with non-TV sources like DVD player or video games?

If so, that's the LG firmware.
