With the tv on, walk up to the cable box and turn it off. using the cable box remote quickly press the red menu key. you should see a white screen with setup information on the screen. the first setting is tv size,that should be 16 x 9. the second should be set to 1080i. and the 4:3 override to 480p. you can change these setting using the up and down arrow keys to select and the left and right to adjust the settings. don't panic if you loose the picture for a moment, it will come back. when you are done, press the menu key again quickly. then turn the cable box on using the power button at the front of the cable box.

HOW DO I PLAY A DVD USING Hitachi Flat Panel Television 32HDL51 (ITS CONNECTED THROUGH HDMI CABLE)


Page 18 of the manual, you shouldn't need to do steps 2 or 3.

CONNECTING A COMPONENT SOURCE WITH HDMI or DVI CAPABILITY TO INPUT 1 or INPUT 2
1.Connect the HDMI or DVI to HDMI connection cable from the output of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the HDMI input as shown on the AVC Center below.
2.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT R of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/R) jack.
3.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT L of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/L) jack.
4.Press the INPUTS button, then select INPUTS 1 or 2 to view the program from the HDTV set top box or DVD player. The VIDEO OSD label disappears automatically after approximately four seconds.
5.Select ANT A or B from the INPUTS menu to return to the previous channel.
NOTES:1. Completely insert the connection cord plugs when connecting to rear panel jacks. The picture and sound that is played back will be abnormal if the connection is loose.
2. The HDMI input on INPUT 1 or 2 contains the copy protection system called High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). HDCP is a cryptographic system that encrypts video signals when using HDMI connections to prevent ******* copying of video contents.
3.HDMI is not a "NETWORK" technology. It establishes a one-way point-to-point connection for delivery of uncompressed video to a display.
4.The connected digital output device controls the HDMI interface so proper set-up of device user settings determines final video appearance.

Out of no where my Vizio won't show cable, Blue Ray, or shows on Roku. One of the HDMI ports hasn't worked well for awhile so would have to switch HDMI ports to watch Roku or Blue Ray, but overall worked...


you may need to change the HDMI board in the tv. it will be the hole board the parts are just to small to replace them all to get the HDMI board working again. find a second hand replacement. should be fine with another known working one.

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

My sansung pn50a460s4dxza says it is 3d ready. how can i use this feature on my tv.


Your tv is a 2008 model, legacy 3d tv and requires a lot more than a current 3d HDTV does to view 3d. Today with a current 3d HDTV, Normally you only need a 3d source like a 3d Bluray movie and 3d glasses from Samsung and a HDMI cable connection from bluray player to HDTV. See below for your TV. You need a PC and IR emitter and Samsung 3d glasses plus user selected options on the tv.
Samsung 3-D Ready HDTV How do Samsung 3-D Ready HDTVs work?
Samsung 3-D Ready HDTVs are enabled by Digital Light Processing (DLP(R)) or Plasma Display Panel (PDP) engines that are capable of very fast refresh rates (120Hz). The inherent speed of these display technologies enables high quality stereoscopic 3-D by alternatively displaying left and right eye images. The display is synchronised with 3-D shutter glasses to provide the observer with a vivid perception of depth.
How do I connect my PC to a Samsung 3-D Ready HDTV?
The DVI output from the PC's graphics card must be connected to the TV's 3-D compatible HDMI port using a DVI-to-HDMI cable (or a HDMI cable plus a DVI to HDMI adaptor).
Alternatively, some newer graphics cards have a HDMI port instead of a DVI port. In this case, simply use a HDMI cable to connect the PC directly to the TV.
On all models, the 3-D compatible HDMI port is identified by the letters "DVI". (eg, "HDMI 3/DVI IN" or "HDMI 1/DVI IN")
What other equipment do I need to enjoy 3-D on my 3-D Ready HDTV?
  • Windows PC with DVI output
  • Compatible 3-D Shutter glasses and IR emitter with VESA compatible sync connector
How do I connect the IR emitter to the 3-D TV to support wireless 3-D shutter glasses?
The IR emitter should be connected to the "3D SYNC OUT" socket. The emitter should be placed on top of the TV with the LEDs facing towards the room. How do I turn the TV into 3-D mode?
Ensure that the TV source is set to "HDMI 3/DVI" (or "HDMI 1/DVI" for 720p models).
Plasma HDTVs Press the Tools button and select 3D Effect. Update from Off to Mode1.

I want to hook up a blue ray dvd player they told me to m=buy HDMI cable and this only goes to the tv, but doesn't have to go hooked up through the cable box


If you want to connect your blu-ray player to your tv, use the HDMI cable.
If you want to connect your cable box to your tv, I'd use component cables or get another HDMI cable.
You're right, you don't have to use your cable box to use your blu-ray player.

5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.

Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.

Philips 32' lcd hdtv


are you using a DVI to HDMI converter? Radeon cards older than x1*** series or roundabout didnt support hdcp on dvi which is required to run Hi-Def rez thru an HDMI cable on most TVs. A video card with hdmi prebuilt in or HDCP compliance listed on the box should be able to handle it. And you should find a resolution both your normal monitor and HDTV can handle to set the coimputer to before you switch it over to the HDTV to be sure it will still show you picture. If you arent using 1080P you might as well use a component input which doesnt require HDCP.
