ensure the set is adjusted to receive the type of channels that are broadcast in your area. By this I mean that if digital is broadcast ensure the tv is setup for digital reception.
I assume that you are using an antenna/aerial. Ensure that this correctly installed and is functioning, there may be a facility on the tv to check the reception via a swr meter of some kind, basically a utiliity that registers that an aerial is bringing in some kind of signal.
It cannot be anything else, if the tv is setup for the local broadcast type and the aerial is connected the signals should be found unless you have very bad reception due to environmental conditions.... in which case you may have to invest in a reception booster/signal amplifier.
Your plasma tv will display HD content when you connect an HD source (Blu Ray Disk, Sony PS3 / PS4 or Xbox 360, HD Cable Box, HD satellite, etc) via the TV's HDMI1, HDMI2, Component1, Component2 jacks or if you connect a UHF/VHF TV antenna (not cable box, etc.) to the "Ant" connector *and* you're close enough to a broadcaster with HD content to view.
Using any other input will produce only the lesser quality SD video signals. Review the manual - linked below - to help you connect the components you have.
Does this model of TV have a built in HD receiver? I've had a quick look at the instruction manual and it looks more or less the same as mine at home. I've not got HD tv reception built in but have to use a set top box. If you're in UK, it should have Freeview HD sticker from the box or manual somewhere but as this looks like an early model tv (only 1 HDMI socket) then you may need a HD set top box such as Sky HD or Freeview HD
hello, it possible if your sharing the signal to sometimes loose reception you should have a dedicated hdtv antena or hdtv cable service for your main tv.
you can check by removing all the other sets and see,
if it happens again then you need a dedicated hd antenna or signal. this should be better for you and your hdtv reception.
To have HD on cable, you will need an HD cable box with the HD service activated by the cable company. Some cable carriers will provide some basic HD services included in the base cost with the box.
From the HD cable box to the TV, you will need an HDMI cable between the cable box and the TV set. This is an HDTV interconnect wire. You will have to refer to the instructions on the cable box and on the TV to get everything going properly.
