Question about Toshiba 55H70 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

My Toshiba 55" TheaterviewHD works great with anything but an HD cable box. When I hook up my hd box using the colerstream HD1 or 2 with component cables i get seperate red blue and green screens all overlapping then the tv cuts off and the red light flashes and it will not turn on untill I unplug it. This however doesn't happen if I use composite or Svideo cables to connect my cable box to the composite video 1,2, or 3. I can also hook up my DVD player to the colorstream component imputs with no problem. I have tried 3 different cable boxes from TWC so I assume the problem has to be with my TV.

Can't hook up hd


I would be surprised if the model listed here has a HDMI input--it should only have a single component HD input marked as DTV.

When hooking up HD Cable box I get "not supported


You most likely have to set the Cable Box to a specific resolution. Because that model only provides 720p/1080i, the box must be set to match that. You may need to use the yellow/white/red Composite output on the box to the tv first, so you can access the boxes menu and set it to 720p or 1080i, then I recommend using Component cables (Red/Blue/Green with white/red for audio) out of the box in to the TVs "Component 2" input. Now you should get a good HD picture. If you still can't get it to work, give me a reply with details and I will get back to you.

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.

Looking for hd channel


To get an hd picture you have to use a digital input and this cannot be done by simply turning it to a channel. You need to hook up your HD receiver (box) to your tv using either an HDMI or a Component which will be a cable that looks similar to an rca but there are three of them and the colors are bed blue and green. If there is a red, blue and green on the back of the cable box and the tv hook them together with a component cable and then find the input on your tv that correlates to the compnent connections and then even after all of this you need to be tuned into a channel that is offered in high definition and if you have cable like I do the high definition channel will be a seperate channel from the regular one. Comcast in my area puts the HD's from channels 400-500. For example my espn HD is channel 403 but just regular espn non HD is on channel 27 in my area.

61A61 TV IS WILL ONLY PICK UP ONE CHANNEL #66 AND NOT CABLE INPUT


Cable companies are slowly but surely reducing the channels you can get without a digital box, which they will supply. You will need to cantact them and rent a HD cable box or converter from them that will work with your displays built-in tuner. However, if your display is HD compatible, then I would just asked your cable company for and non-DVR HD cabe box and connect it to your display with component cables....

Xbox360 hd hookup problem---1080i


Your component cable is probably switched to the HD setting. You have to switch it back in order to get video when hooked up to a regular TV.

HD ready?


If it is HD ready it will have HD component cable hookups. They are the red, blue, and green color coded hook up. You may also have RGB hookups which will look like a usb port. If you have any of these hook ups located on the TV then it is HD ready. If not then you were told false information. Let me know if you have any other questions.
