Question about Hitachi 53SWX01W 53" Rear Projection Television
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.

look at these see if this helps
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.

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.

SOURCE: HDMI and or Receiver problem
While Bluray pluged into the TV change the resolution from AUTO to 720P then plug Bluray back to the receiver and see if it solve your problem.
