Question about Toshiba 46H84 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Pixelation I have had this tv for a few years and I get terrible pixelation problems on my HD channels (ESPN & NBC in particular). My cable company swears everything is OK on there end. Anyone have a similar problem? I have a repair man coming out but was curious if this was a problem for others.

    Cable is saying I need a new HD modulator (or something to that effect).



    Any thoughts?

  • cecil_316 Jan 22, 2009

    Just an additional thought that may not make sense but could the spot where I plug my componets into my tv be bad? I have another slot I could try.



    Also, could the component cable be bad. I am just using the component cables provided to me by cable (I assume they are of the cheap variety)

This model has been known for problems with the Hyper module but the picture would be affected with any input source.HD or not.The cable converter box and the cable signal are the only culprits for pixilation.Pixalation is the result of missing digital information via signal.If it is only appears on the HD signal I would suspect the cable signal or the converter box.I assume you are using your component input on your TV or the HDMI input.As a technician I would suspect the cable box or cable for pixalation.

    What inputs are you using for your HD?Component?HDMI? Is there a such thing as a HD modulator?Sure it`s your cable box.It is processing your HD signal.All the TV does is display what the cable box sends to it.If it sends an incomplete signal to the TV the TV will process an incomplete signal.Pixlalation is an incomplete signal.The TV cannot cause this.Now if you have this problem while watching DVDs I will say it`s your TV and your Hyper module needs to be repaired.

What causes pixelation only on digital 9 TV and there subsidiaries


Pixellation is a weak and noisy signal coming in. Digital HD needs a good signal at the antenna socket on the back of the TV. You need to have good quality quad shield coax cable down from the antenna, and preferably crimped F-connectors at each plug and socket. You may even need a new digital antenna if you are making do with an older analogue one.

Your other stations will also improve.

Pixelation of TV channels via Settop box


Pixelation is caused by poor signal strength. Check the signal strength in the setup section. Unfortunately some boxes and TVs don't handle poor signal as well as others. It might be worthwhile trying a signal amplifier

If you have only one channel that is a bit more pixelated than the others I hate to tell your cable company but its not the TV at faut. The fact is that channel has more compression and also the fact that some sports will show more pixelation than others. Depends on if the shot is close up or a wide angle shot.

I was wondering what is the typical ideal set up in terms of picture settings to obtain the best picture from my 46" samsung 6 series. It is currently connected to my sky box (not HD)through a normal...


If you are not connected to HD, pixelation can easily occur, especially if you are using an analogue connection. Here is a list, from best to worst, of how you should connect the video on your system.

1) BEST - HDI cable between the TV HDMI in and the sky box HDMI out. This is a full bandwidth digital audio and video connection.

2) BETTER - S-Video between your TV and sky box (with L & R audio)

3) GOOD - Component Video with L & R audio

4) STANDARD - single video cable (yellow) along with L & R audio

5) standard coax

These are listed, as stated, from best to worst quality. If you are not using a digital connection (HDMI), then pixelation can be expected.

Cant get the local hdtv chanells when hooked to cable that i get with my sony tv ask the stick was advertized to do


Take it back to where you bought the item. Most cable companies provide a box for HD TV you can't by pass unless yop have the software. Someone is misleading you. Call them back and get the tech's name, if he can't help you ask for thier legal dept. Ask the since in 4 tries TECH SUPPORT can't or won't help, is this a training problem or false advertising? Please always get the name of the persom or badge or some sort of ID. I am not telling to legally pursue this, that's up to you. I'm telling you to try the card, before playing it., or partner--throw in the hans d and take it back!

Is this a HD channel? This is usually caused by a hiccup in the streaming of HD from the cable/sat company. How long has this been happening?

Get HD Signals but it Says Channels not available


you might have to look for "hidden" hd channels.

most cable companies are broadcasting the local stations unencrypted, so you should be able to receive them and sometimes a few other "basic" hd channels like discovery or tnt.

try googling your cable system, city and hd channels to see if someone has posted a list of channels (eg, 88-1 or 102-1)

No audio on select channels


Go into the TV's menu and see what type of audio mode its set on. If it says sap turn on to stereo or mono. If it says stereo, set to mono. Also try to unplug set for 12 to 24 hours.
