    What do you mean you can't view high definition on XPS one? XPS One is a computer...



    You can't compare an HDTV with a HD computer LCD screen.

    If you right click on the desktop, go to properties, and click on settings, TRY TO move the resolution settings all the way left. So that you would have less pixels. THEN you would see the difference between HD and no HD :)

    I've always wondered the same thing myself. I've got a laptop with an "HD" screen but I've never noticed any major difference between that screen and my normal lcd.

Picture problem on panasonic Vierra plasma tv


It looks like you are saying standard definition pictures do not cover the screen like HD pictures do. Standard def is formatted 4:3 and high def is 16:9. They are not the same so your high def screen is made to display the not as tall but wider high def picture. In order to fill the screen with the taller and not as wide 4:3 aspect ratio std def picture you must tell the TV to stretch the picture or otherwise fill the screen.The TV will have controls you can exercise for this purpose and you can set it up to always show std def in a particular manner. The alternative, if you want the standard Def picture to look true to form, is to view standard def in Letter Box form. It's appearance will then include black panels on the sides of the picture. So the problem is not with the TV but in accepting older format pictures playing on newer format displays (TVs.)

I have an Apex digital 32" LCD TV Model LD 3249 and Serial #36056009262 Is this a high definition TV


Yes. 720p High-Def capable.

Remember you have to have a High-Def signal source to actually view High-Definition video. This means local broadcast TV in HD or digital cable TV with HD service and a HD channel or satellite or a Bluray Disc.

I have a 50" hitachi rear projection tv, do i need


rozmyers,

You do not need a high def receiver, your unit has an ATSC tuner which is the same thing. You do need to hook it up to a high definition signal. You mentioned that you have satellite. Call your supplier and order the high definition channels if you do not already have them on the downlink. They should be able to tell you if you have them or not. They should also be able to tell you which channels they are (normally the higher ones). Once you have a high definition feed you will have the best picture you are going to get with todays technology.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial.

Model LG52LG70 has a problem when switching from High Definition channels to non-high definition channels, and vice a versa. The tv simply shuts off, pauses for 10 seconds and then turns on. Time warner...


Any high def TV will momentarily go blank when changing from High Def to normal mode. Ten seconds is an abnormally long time for that to take place. If you still have a warranty on the TV I suggest you take it in to have it serviced. Otherwise you will have to pay to have this item checked out. There are a number of issues that might be causing the problem so it will be necessary to have a technician check it out.

Picture format



The HD reciever shouldn't be the problem.

If you recieve an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image will be displayed at that ratio on your HDTV unless you specify otherwise. To do so go to your TV's Setup screen

setup
Choose picture formats
select smooth wide as your default

***Some digital (ATSC format) stations may transmit 4:3 images in a way that will not allow expansion. You will be unable to adjust the picture format.

Hope this helps!!!

Display delay


This is unlikely Verizon's problem.

Does the delay occur with non-TV sources like DVD player or video games?

If so, that's the LG firmware.

How can I tell if my TV has high definition??


If it is high def it will probably have "HDTV" printed on it somewhere. It will have some type of HDMI or DVI inputs. If it's not high def there is nothing that can convert it.
