Turner,
I looked through the Hitachi web site for your owners manual, no luck. If you're trying to use HDMI as the type of connection from your digital TV box to the TV, keep in mind that HDMI is not a network, but a one way point-to-point connection. That said, make sure that the cable is seated firmly at both ends. Next, grab the owners manual from the cable box and make sure it is programmed to be sending HDMI. The cable box MUST be programmed before it will send HDMI. The TV is most likely ok, check the cable boxes programming.
If the cable box has a regular "video out" connection, temporarily use that to be able to "see" the cable box and go through it's menus. Find the HDMI section, turn that signal on and you should be good to go.

Tip

HDTV HDMI hookup


Connect a HDMI cable from your source device (cable box, Bluray, satellite receiver) to your HDTV for High Def video and audio. This is the best hookup for HD, even 1080p. For 3D HDTV, make sure to get a high-speed category 2 HDMI cable. Select proper HDMI input on the TV using the remote. HDMI means High Definition Multimedia Interface.
Any newer digital TV (made after 2008) should have at least one HDMI input.

Just tried to hook my aoc 22" to high definition


I beleive you have to enable audio in the HDMI SETUP so it will send the digital audio through HDMI ports, check the cable box and the TV HDMI sound setup.

No signal onthe screen


If you are connected to a high definition cable box or satellite tv box you would not need to turn to channel 3 on your television. The television would need to be in the right input either component or hdmi. If someone connected the tv to the cable box or satellite tv box with a coax cable like an antenna cable then the tv channels will be available on channel 3 as well but they will not display in high definition. You change channels with the cable box/satellite tv box remote control. If the above is not correct and you are only connected to an antenna cable and not to a cable box or satellite tv box you will need to complete a channel search from the tv menu. It sounds like you are using a cable box/satellite tv box and that the tv is on the wrong input. If the cable box/satellite tv box is not working (i.e. just a black screen) on your television than that is a different matter entirely.

I'm confused about HD (high definition) and digital


In Australia analogue TV signals will be phased out and finished by the end of 2009 (I think).
If you have a standard analogue TV you won't be able to receive any more free to air analogue TV programs when they stop brocasting these TV signals. To recieve the new digital signals you need to buy a digital set top box (which receives digital TV signals and converts it to analogue signal that can be displayed on your old TV). The set top box will only receive Standard Definition signals and this is a lower screen resolution that is available from High Definition signals.

Digital TV signals offer approx. 15 TV channels ln High definition and Standard Definition, different programs channels will be available from the same TV broadcaster, although the High Definition pograms will also be repeated on one of the Standard Definition channels.

High Definition gives a sharper image than Standard dedinition, but you may not notice much difference because it depends much on the material you are viewing, You will notice how clear DVD and BlueRay movies are compared with the VCR tapes. To get the best images from DVD movies your player must be connected to the HDMI connector on your High Definition TV (provided your DVD player has one, usually BlueRay players will have one, they also will play normal DVD disks).

If you purchase a new High Definition TV you will also be able to receive all the Digital TV programs. Currrently these TVs are avail in Plasma or LCD screens and there are newer technologies within a few years. The Plasma screens use twice as much energy (electricity) as a LCD screen. It is suggested that the viewing distance to the TV should be 3.5 times the size of the TV screen.

Hope this answers your query.

an output like ( HDMI ) would be on a dish reciever , and a hdmi input on a tv would plug into that output on the dish reciever
Is HDMI what you are trying to connect? then you would need an HDMI cable
HDTV = High Definition television , which means that you have a built in digital tuner that will pick up the digital and high definition broadcast channels with an antenna connected to the tv

Not supported mode


This happens when you have a video signal that the TV does not recognize. If you have an High Definition source such as a Blue Ray Disc player, High Definition Set Top Box, Or a High Defintion Gamming System than use the HDMI output of such device, connect a HDMI cable to this output and put the other end into The input of HDMI on the TV. Make sure you have this device on before you select the input on the remote of the TV or the TV will say NOT Supported Mode.
