Question about Hitachi 51F59 51" HDTV Projection Television
I am actually just posting this, for anyone else searching for OTA audio issues on *some* (not all) HD broadcasts:
Check your TV settings for the firmware version. For a Hitachi 50VS69A / 55VS69A / 62VS69A, this is found from the remote: "Menu-->Setup-->Reset the Software". The MMC version will be something like v.0102.0001.
As of now, Feb 2009, I just upgraded to v.0109.0001.
You will have to go to the Hitachi website and email their tech support. They will send an MMC card, instructions, and a return envelope. You put the card in the back of the TV, turn it on, drill back down the menu, and select to upgrade. After that, you unplug the TV, remove the card and send it back to the Hitachi mothership.
Also, in my search to find a solution, I found only one post somewhere, which mentioned upgrading the firmware--something I would have never thought to do on a television. So, I'm throwing another post out here, in the hopes that the idea helps someone else.
Thank you for posting this. I will attempt to post this information in a more permanent place that can be found easily.
