1 Answer

Does a 2002 Hitachi 61' 61swx10b have a pixel count ?

I'm confused about buying a blu ray player for my older HD hitach.

I was reading the new data on 2008/2009 hitachi plasma, and while mine is a projection I began to wonder does a projection have a pixel count ?
I tried plugging in a sharp blu ray saturday and using component cables it would not show a picture on my screen, sound was there but no picture ? Im literate ablout cables and hdmi, but my older tv does not have HDMI connections.. thoughts and answers to these 2 questions ?

    The answer to your 1st suggestion is, I could not bring up the menu on the blu ray because I have no picture from. Almost like it was not connected. I have a Sony DVD player, plugged up, so I can physically place the blu ray on top of the DVD and use the cables from DVD to hook up the blu ray, still, no picture. !

    TV was already using this component setting, so no change needed on TV

    I have a Denon sound system so I pluged red and white audio into that. Help ???? I have my manual for the TV and my girlfriends Sharp Blu Ray, but before I unhooked her HDMI cable at her house and brought it over to my place, I made sure the blu ray was component "ready".. thoughts ?

You have to tell your blu ray player to only output 1080i via component cables. Do this in the blu ray players setup menu.

    a projection uses lines of resolution. so just make sure to connect the red and white cables for audio and the 3 rgb cables to tv. oh and i dont know if you have to tell your tv that you are using the component input in the setup menu. i am trying to find your manual online but cant seem to find it.

  • Chuck Feb 23, 2009

    Your component outputs may be labeled Y, B-Y, and R-Y. In this case, connect the components B-Y output to the TVõs PB input and

    the components R-Y output to the TVõs PR input.

    4. Your component outputs may be labeled Y-CBCR. In this case, connect the component CB output to the TVõs PB input and the

    component CR output to the TVõs PR input.

Is there some applications that can support 4K blu-ray playback?

Though the 4k Blu-ray player prototype is released in 2015 CES but there isn't that much information for the price and specific launch date we can get from Panasonic. And as I know, the 4K Blu-ray is supposed to come before 2015 Christmas. Too late, huh...
So let say the best for now is still watching a good movie with Macgo Blu-ray Player. By the way, it has updated to support 4K.

Blu-ray players are an evolving electronic. They need to be updated almost monthly. Best buy will do this for a fee. or you can plug in a lan line from your home network then in menu of Blu-ray player go to network update. this should solve all your problems

What Blu Ray to buy for ONKYO TX-NR801 for Dolby TrueHD, etc???

Hi, as the Onkyo receiver you have does not have HDMI switching, the only thing it will do for you with a Blu-Ray player is process the audio signals.  The video from the BR player will have to go directly to an HDMI input of your hi def TV.  In this case, either Sony or Panasonic BR player will be equal.  Assuming you keep the Onkyo unit you have, you would want to use the optical digital output from the BR player as the audio source into one of the optical, digital audio inputs on the Onkyo.  In an ideal world, your receiver would some that does do HDMI switching.  This way, all the audio and video signals from any audio or video source would be automatically switched and channeled through 1 simple HDMI cable into your hi def TV.  This will make you life simpler as ther would be no need to select an appropriate input on the TV, as well as one on the receiver.  That said, buying a new receiver in addition to a BR player is more costly.  Good luck.  Let us know how it goes.

Is my Hitachi Tv model 43FDX10B HD ready?

Probably but this hitachi has no reall HD just simulated, called D3VirtualHD by hitachi. Should work, you can always return the blu-ray if it's not what you expected or ask a good salesman if it's worth, you might try it in store...

Dvd player, hd dvd movies

If this is just a regular DVD player, then no. You need an HD DVD player to play HD DVD discs. Now the HD DVD players should play regular DVD discs.

High Def disks

No! This player is not equipped with the blue laser and format to read HD. Currently there are two format es for HD. Blu- Ray and HD/DVD. Only these are capable of reading HD disk. Blu-Ray is going to be the industry standard
