RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def

I have tried connecting a few different HD devices (an XBOX360, an HD DVD player and now a PS3) to my RCA D52130 52 in. HD-ready TV and whenever I configure the component for anything other than standard definition, the screen goes blank or has wavy lines. Basically, it's like the TV doesn't know what to do with the HD signal. It can only display properly if the device is configured for 480p, nothing else works. The specs in the TV's manual say that it is an HDTV monitor capable of 1280 x 1080 interlaced resolution. It is outfitted with three sets of the standard s-video/composite A/V jacks, one set of component (Y-Pr-Pb) video jacks and one 15-pin D-sub high resolution input port. I have tried connecting the TV using both the component video jacks and the high resolution video input but neither setup seems to work. The instruction manual is here: http://157.254.235.130/public/15719660.pdf. Page 63 gives the rest of the specs for the TV. I've tried contacting RCA but they have been absolutely no help. Has anybody else had this problem? Is the TV too old (about seven years) to be compatible with the latest technology? I would just like to know if I should pursue getting the TV fixed (if anything is even wrong with it) or if I should consider replacing the TV altogether if I really want to enjoy the benefits of HD.

Hi!
I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.


Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.

If this is just a regular DVD player, then no. You need an HD DVD player to play HD DVD discs. Now the HD DVD players should play regular DVD discs.

Connecting Projector to High Def Source (e.g. PS3 HDMI)


That projector supports M1-D also which is the digital side of the M1-DA... Anyway, they sell cables that are M1-D to HDMI to which you can hook directly to the PS3. They are decently priced too, less than $20. I know this thread is old, but I came across it due to an issue I am having with my xb31, broken color wheel. Trying to find parts...

Picture problems


Hi,

The pixelation is probably caused by MPEG2 compression on the DVD and Virgin media video streams, the blur is probably caused becasue you are displaying a standard definition signal on a high definition TV.

However if a high-def source still has these problems then you may have a faulty TV, your best bet is too hook up a high-def source such as a HD/Blu-ray player or PS3/360 games console.

Should a high-def source look ok, then you may have some look changing the display settings on the TV to try and improve picture sharpness and color balance.

Thanks.
