Does my toshiba 50h82 have an internal digital converter?

I'm trying to connect my pc (HDMI output) to my old Toshiba 80h82 (component RGB input) to play Netflix. Does my TV have a digital to analog converter or do I need to buy a converter?

I doubt the model as old as it is will work without a converter.

The only thing I could recommend is to return the board and get the right board. open the set and get the part number on the board itself. You cannot modify a set to work things it was not designed for without reprogramming the microprocessor. Good Luck

SOURCE: Toshiba 52hm84 DLP-HDMI Component has been compromised?

This is a wild guess, but I believe that you are being **** by the movie industry. The HDMI protocol includes a form of DRM (Digital Rights Management) for high resolution content called: High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection Basically this means that the media (disk or broadcast) instructs the player (in your case the cable box) to insist that any downstream devices (your TV) is industry and DRM compliant. Specifically this evil protection scheme is designed to plug the analog hole and make it impossible for you to record or copy the movie by using an analog output from your TV. This even restricts the size of the TV you can play the movie on, thus preventing pubs and bars from displaying the content on big screen TVs without paying royalties. The message means that the manufacturer of your TV has refused to toe the industry line. 1984 Anyone ? Martin

SOURCE: Have a Toshiba 42hm66 tv. The HDMI port has quit

The best thing to do is to call Toshiba at 1800-631-3811 and see if they could refer a Service Facility to you to check it out. I would guess that that Board that has the HDMI Port on it needs to be replaced but it is not a easy or simple job.
I hope this helps,

Can you connect a hd converter to a Toshiba cx 32 g60 tv


there isn't much point in connecting an hd converter the toshiba cx32g60. the tv can only support an sd signal (composite video or ntsc analog). however, many hd set-top boxes (dvd players, cable and satellite) have composite outputs. these can be connected to your tv. blu-ray videos can't be watched with this tv. (the hdcp (high definition copy protection) can't be sent through most converters.)

if you want to watch ota programming , the cheapest option would be to find an sd digital-to-analog converter. these were the ones sold when most stations switched to digital tuners. some are being sold off as people replace their old analog sets. there are some hd tuner boxes, like this one: http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?mc=03&p=3500stb&d=iview-hd-dvr-receiverconverter-box-for-tv-antenna-qam-%283500stb%29&c=digital%20converter%20boxes&sku= , that have composite video output which will connect to the cx32g60.


i hope this helps.

Your TV doesn't have video output on either HDMI or Composite video. (There are a few TVs that do have a video out but often that is only available for some input/output combinations. You would need to check the manual but the PC input is usually not available for the video output.)

You could get a VGA to composite or component video converter and direct the signal to your new TV from your PC. One example of the first converter is here: http://www.cablestogo.com/product/29548 . An example of the VGA to component video is here: https://sewelldirect.com/audio-authority-vga-to-component-pc-to-hdtv-converter.asp . There are other models available. A few VGA to HDMI converters also exist. However, since those need to convert an analog output to digital, they are more expensive.

I hope this helps.

(A few VGA to composite cables exist. They will not work for your purpose. They are designed to connect projectors with RCA ports and understand the VGA RGB signal to a computer.)

How to get analog channels on my Toshiba?


The problem is probably that your antenna can't pick up any of the remaining analog stations in your area. Only low-power stations are still broadcasting an analog signal. If you are using an indoor antenna, you might the signal with an outside antenna with an amplifier. (Check a site like tvfool.com to get the direction to any nearby analog station and make sure that your antenna is oriented correctly. This site or antennaweb.org will also help you orient your antenna for the digital stations in your area.)

You need a set-top digital tuner or a converter box to translate the OTA digital signals (ATSC) and translate them to the analog NTSC format. Low end converter models with only SD output are harder to find but still available. However, there are some converter boxes that have HD output as well. This one, http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?mc=03&p=3500STB&d=iView-HD-DVR-ReceiverConverter-Box-for-TV-Antenna-QAM-(3500STB)&c=Digital%20Converter%20Boxes&sku= , lets you attach an external drive (USB flash drive or hard drive) . It connects via component video or HDMI. (We've had good luck with our model with a portable (2.5") external hard drive. It replaces the SD converter box and DVD recorder.)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(In my area, there is only one low-power station still broadcasting. Its transmitter is nearly 40 miles and can only be picked up with the external antenna and amplifier. If the weather is bad, we will lose that signal. Beware: an amplifier can become damaged and block the signal. The usual check for this removing the amplifier and attaching the antenna directly to the TV. For low-power stations, this test doesn't often help.)

I want to connect my computer to sony wega triniton kvxr29m80 from the hdmi or vga port to the tv's component or 3rc ports. is it possible..i have tried the hdmi to component cable and it does not...


An HDMI to component video cable will not work. These are meant for projectors that work with computers and have only component in jacks.

You will need is a VGA to Composite video converter, VGA to component video converter or HDMI to component video converter. These translate the computer output to the input the TV will understand. Here are some VGA to component video converters: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html . (The exception is if your computer has a TV-out port. In this case, you need an adapter that looks like an S-video plug that will then have composite or component video jacks.) If you want to use the TV speakers, you will also need a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter (either M and F/F for an RCA cable to the TV or F to M/M for a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) or cable (3.5 mm M and M/M RCA).


I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(A computer gives RGB output on the VGA cable; the TV reads PbPrY on the component video. Thus you need for the converter rather than a simple adapter. Similar communication differences apply on the HDMI signal.)

Can I connect my PC to my Toshiba 30HFX84 30


You can't connect the PC to the 30HFX84 directly. (The HDMI ports are not compatible with a computer's signal.)

If you use a converter box (VGA to component video), you would be able to get the connection. See this site for some examples: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html . Avoid the VGA to component video cables; those are for connecting to a projector that reads RGB signals at the component in.

Some video cards have a TV out option. In that case, you wouldn't need the converter. You might need the appropriate dongle to fit the video card TV-out and then connect the cable to the TV.

Crutchfield has the manual for the 30HFX84 available here: http://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/052/05230HFX84.PDF .

I hope this helps.

Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.

If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component.html . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.

A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)

I hope this helps.

Connect laptop to toshiba 50h8250


This requires a converter. If the laptop has a VGA port, use an VGA to component video or VGA to composite video converter. See this site for some examples: http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html . Do not use a VGA to component video cable - these are meant for projectors that use RGB signals.

If the laptop has an HDMI port, you'll need a different type of converter, like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component-adapter.html . Then set the output to YPbPr.

I hope this helps.

Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...
