Upgrading to hd

I have a 54" rear projection tv. When I bought it I was told that it could be upgraded to HD. What do I need to upgrade it to HD? Will it have the correct resolution? Is it just replacing the tuner or what?
When I upgrade it, will it be true HD?
Thanks

If the tv has the red... blue...green ..picture inputs you hook in through there and you dont have to do anything because your cable sat box will seng the HD signal right through to your tv!

Cant get mitsubishi ws-63313 to go into hd


Call Dish back. Your HD signal has to be configured in your dish receiver. They can configure it for you over the phone. If not, then the dish guy has to adjust the wires at the splice box wherever it's located in your house. HD requires a dual cable line from the dish to the splice block. It's not the TV.

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.

Sony kp 51ws510 upgrade to HD - how to do this


There are inputs on the back of the set. If your tv is Sony 51ws510 then it is capable of HD, but you have to have component or DVI cables to connect the tv to the HD device (HD cable box or DVD player).
<br>

<br>
On your set the component inputs on the back of the tv are video5 and video6 in the middle located in a vertical line (red, green, blue rca video connections with red and white rca audio connections).
<br>

<br>
You also have a DVI input toward at the top of the input panel (white connector with red and white rca audio connectors).

Hi, Please do not shoot the messenger, but the answer is no, your Mitsubishi tv is not HD and is not upgradable to HD. Sorry!

Can i upgrade to hd on this tv


I am not finding anything on the net about being able to upgrade it but the HD in the model # stands for high def but the tv is old enough that it may not go up as high as 1080 most likely just 480i or p which can be achieved with an s-video or might be 720 with the R/B/G connector or a DVI connector, you can look for converting cables on ebay

Hd ready?


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).
