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.

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.

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.

You need an HD Tuner box to pick up the over-the-air HD channels. This TV is only HD ready. Regarding your cable company's cable box, as long as it has an HD tuner, it will be able to transmit HD channels to this TV.

Doubt it. We ran HD through our small CATV system using consumer grade modulators but could only get them on the AIR frequencies, as we had very limited bandwidth as we had to carry 64 analog channels plus digital HITS packages for our Motorola DSxxx series boxes. Try plugging the CATV feed into the ANT input and do an autoprogram, or tell the tv to look on the AIR frequencies when it asks if you have CATV or AIR. Worth a shot though.

I purchased a SANYO-DP46848 42"HDTV. I have a Cable box and my cable provider (Time Warner Cable) provides free HD Channels. However.... I CANNOT PICKUP ANY HD CHANNELS ON THE NEW TV. WHY???...


I just got the same exact one, when it searches automatically the first time it doesn't look for digital channels. go to Menu>manual channel search>cable. it will look for all possible signals and will take forever probably. the free digital channels will take several seconds to switch channel to channel, but they're there! They will show up on your screen as "DC 91-2" or similar. you can switch back to regular cable channels with the input button, you just cycle through all the inputs. hope that helps.
