This sounds like it could be an issue with the drop located on the outside of the house where the signal come in from the pole. typically if the drop is old or weathered or if the cables inside the house are old the audio and visual with cut in and out. typically a good resolve without spending a lot of money is to call your tv provider and ask for a wire maintenance program and details should be under a 10 dollar charge per month. after setting up the wire maintenance ask if they can send a technician out to check the signal and the drop. this will save you the 45+$ an hour and after they find a solution you can cancel the wire maintenance and will no longer have to pay the additional fee's every month.
hope this fixya

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!


Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

Do we need to buy an antenna to get this TV ready for Digital TV?


LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.

What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.

If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)

By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna.
HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface
STB = Set Top Box
High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment)
LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)

If you have anymore questions, ask away.

How to adjust from 480p to higher resolution up to 1080


several things use hdmi cabling, also change resolution (can sometimes be changed on front of direct tv receiver) or may have to go through menu to change to the different resolutions. also turn the native mode OFF! having the native mode on for directv will give sometimes give you odd pictures. also whatever resolution you choose through directv menu's make sure your tv is also set to the same resolution

one wire should be going out the wall or through the wall, that wire goes to (sat in) port. If your other wire goes to the tv, that one goes to the (out to tv) port.

Connect satellite receiver to dvd recordrer


there is really no way around it. Directv and Tivo are releasing a new receiver in a few months. Or you could purchase a HD dvr. Directv's receivers dont send any guide data thru a RF output, only picture and sound. The recorder you have is great for cable.

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
