Question about Hitachi 53SWX01W 53" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Blue Ray Compatible?

I have had my Hitachi 53SWX01W set for maybe 7 years or so. It is HD ready. My DVD player that I had hooked up to Component jacks #1 crapped out recently and I was using a portable DVD player in the front jacks. Everything always played perfect. I bought a Sony Blue Ray player and a Samsung HD Tuner over Thanksgiving and installed them. HD Tuner on component jacks #1 and the Blue Ray on CJ #2. Both with sound through fiber optic. The tuner was a snap and the picture is great. The Blue Ray was also a snap and Blue Ray disc's play great. My problem is DVD's! When playing a Standard DVD the picture will blank out radomly for 1/2 to 3 secounds and it may do it once or twice per disc or it may happen randomly throughout the disc. Sometimes it will not happen at all and the next day playing the same disc the picture will start blinking out again. There is no interuption in the sound or place in the movie, just a loss of picture! I have traded component jacks between the tuner and Blue Ray, I have change Component cables from very expensive to very cheap and back with no noticable difference. I exchanged the Sony BDP-350 Blue Ray player for another player with no success. I still have the same problems. When veiwing Blue Ray disc's The TV will display 1080i resolution with no problems at all. When playing standard DVD's the TV displays 480p resolution and the blinking problem happens. The Blue Ray player dosen't ramp up the picture quality on DVD's as I thought it would but that could be because I'm not using an HMDI cable which my TV does not have.
Please HELP!!! Jim

Most HDTVs cannot properly stretch incoming HD signals, however, if the programme is true HD, you should not much of the image off-screen - most new HDTVs have about 2% overscan and the tickers should be on screen when watched in the appropriate stretch mode.

SOURCE: S video displays, but Component video is intermittant

Shall we assume that the DVD is fine, before addressing the TV issues? Does it work with any other device or component? Seems that if your S Video is clean, then it's just a matter of refining whether your DVD is as well. Check that, and let us know.

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.

Do I need a tuner or converter box for this type of TV?


Most projection tvs even if they say HD need a converter box. This is because the HD tv part is referring to playing hd video through the component inputs. This input is typically where you would connect a dvd player or blue ray player. Most projection tv's where made before the transfer of analog to digital tv.
Hope this helps

How do I get the HD on this model? Which cables/hook up should I use? I do not have a cable box or set top box but if these are required, please let me know. Thanks!


Your unit is HDTV ready but is not an HDTV. It is capable of displaying HDTV only through the component inputs. Your tuner is analog NTSC and will not receive HDTV or digital.

You could get an HDTV picture using a Blue Ray DVD and hooking up the component connectors from the DVD to the TV.

The only other way would be to get an HDTV tuner with a component output and hook it up the same way, component out to component in, and hook the tuner input to an off air antenna (receiving HDTV) or cable or satellite with HD signals.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Hook up a lg blueray player to mitsubishi medallion 65"


Yes, there is an adapter which will take the hdmi output of the blue-ray and convert it to dvi. You will also need to connect the blue-ray audio out (rca jacks) since the hdmi is both audio and video (digital) and the dvi is video only.
