Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Sony Bravia KDL-46S2010

Just purchased this TV and the picture is not quite what I had in mind. I don't have HDTV available at my apartment, so my current setup is coaxial cable from wall to cable box to TV. Bascially, the picture is pixelated and far from sharp. Any help would be appreciated.

Try plugging the coax directly into the T.V. or from you VCR or DVD player then to the TV. The bravia sets also have various picture mode settings as you will discover when you go through your manual. Cable boxes or splitters can cause problems also is they are not of good quality. I love my 40.

The TV you have purchased from US, will be only meant to receive NTSC video signals. It will not work with PAL signals. No need to alter the TV circuits. Just try to get an NTSC to PAL converter, and connect it.

How to connect a philips antenna to a trutech tv


Unplug your television and turn the set around so the back of the set is facing you.

  • 2 Disconnect the antenna or cable connection from the television's "VHF," "Antenna In" or similarly worded port if it is connected.
  • 3 Examine your splitter and notice one end of the device has a coaxial port while the other end has two coaxial ports.
  • 4 Plug the coaxial end of the television antenna into one of the two coaxial ports on the splitter.
  • 5 Plug the coaxial cable coming from the cable television connection outlet into the second coaxial port on the splitter. Use the port next to the one you used to plug the television antenna into.
  • 6 Place one end of a 2 foot piece of coaxial cable into the single coaxial port on the splitter.
  • 7 Plug the other end of the 2 foot piece of coaxial cable into your television's "VHF," "Antenna In" or similarly worded port.
  • 8 Plug in the television set and turn it around so the screen is facing you.
  • 9 Use your television's remote control to access the "Menu," "Setup" or similarly worded function. Or press the "Menu" or "Setup" button on the front of the television.
  • 10 Select the "Channel Setup" or similarly worded function. Set the Input to "Cable" and perform an "Auto Scan" to locate all available cable television channels.
  • 11 Select the "Channel Setup" or similarly worded function, then set the input to "Antenna" and perform an "Auto Scan" to locate all available broadcast channels. Your television will locate both broadcast and cable television channels.
  • 12 Scan the channels on your television to make sure all available channels have been found. If you are missing any channels that you know you should have, manually program the channels into your television using the "Channel Setup," "Manual Channel Setup" or similarly worded function.

    Really? cool... so I have a Panasonic HDTV 720p... just moved, no cable, but I have a TV antenna. Amplified indoor antenna. GE brand model 24700. I powered and connected the coaxial cable between the tv...


    You need to go into on screen TV tuner/channel scanning setup page and change the signal source from CABLE to ANTENNA so it will scan again to pick up off the air signals. Please read the TV user manual for more details.
    What is the model number of the TV?

    Trying to hook up WII game, have new led samsung, with blue ray and sound system, doesn't seem to be enough connections for rca cord


    That's because there's only one. You shouldn't be using the RCA (Composite) connections on your TV for anything other than what you have to( i.e., the Wii) or else there was no point in purchasing it to begin with. You need an HDMI cable for your Blu-Ray player, an HDMI cable for your Cable Box and I don't know what kind of receiver you have so I can't comment on that but in less it's more than decade old it must at least have the ability to to do digital optical or coaxial (perhaps it's time to upgrade to a fancy 7.1 system with HDMI?). As far as your video sources are concerned, if you use RCA (Composite) cables or COAXIAL (thick cable from the cable box) you will be getting a standard definition picture on your 1080p 240Hz Samsung LED HDTV. Don't buy your HDMI cables in a store as they'll charge you between $20 and $100 for them. Get them at Monoprice.com by clicking here for $2 - $3. There is no difference in quality between HDMI cables despite the lie that Monster Cable has perpetuated.
    As far as the Wii is concerned, there is a Component cable available for it that will improve your picture dramatically over the RCA (Composite) cables (although not in HD because the Wii is an SD system). Nintendo sells it for $20 but of course, you can get at Monoprice for $3, here. I have this and it works great.
    Good luck!

    I could not swallow my set up. what to do? how can i assemble tv to a cpu?


    Hello and thank you for allowing me to help you.

    PLEASE reward the ACCEPTED best answer

    ******There are several ways to configure your setup, we will cover the most cost efficient way first****

    1. You can purchase a TV TUNER PCI CARD or AVG GREEN OR BLACK PORT (SHORTER) to plug straight into your WHITE COLOR slot
    2. All you would need is a TV COAXIAL cable to plug straight into the available coaxial cable slot AFTER installing the software
    3. You will know that your install went well when you do not receive any errors
    4. You will more than likely receive a remote control with your new card

    More expensive method

    1. Purchase a USB BASED TV TUNER with an available coaxial cable port to plug your cable tv line straight in. This should also include a remote.

    Please do not forget to award your ACCEPTED ANSWER
