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.

Can I use a blue ray with my tv?


Blu-ray players can be connected and used with any Television that has at least Composite video inputs. But the only way to access the high def is through either a HDMI connection or your Component Video connections. You DO need an HD compatible TV to see any benefits of Blu-ray. Check the back of your TV your RCA model should have 1 set of the Syncroscan HD component input jacks and be sure the Blu-ray player has the component out jacks since they are being phased out.

Just be aware of the following:

As of January 1 2011, all Blu-ray players that reach the market will be Image Constraint Token enabled as per the industry AACS Adopter agreement. What this means is that new Blu-ray players will only be able to output high definition content over HDMI. Film studios will be able to embed an Image Constraint Token on their Blu-ray discs restricting the Blu-ray player from outputting the image in HD over an analog output, such as component. Instead, images will be sent over component will be constrained to a maximum resolution of 540p.

The move is part of a strategy that is designed to move consumers to digital-only connectivity so that by 2013 all analog outputs on Blu-ray players will be phased out. Studios have not been permitted to embed this technology into Blu-ray discs prior to December 31 2010, so discs purchased prior to this date will not have their image constrained. However, users will now need to look for the Image Constraint Token on the packaging of Blu-ray discs released after January 1 2011, if they still rely on component out for their Blu-ray player.

No picture from Blu-ray


If the TV works fine with other sources the problem is the HDMI output is not enabled on the BD player.
Most BD players do not output both HDMI and composite formats simultaneously. Check to make sure the HDMI output is selected on the BD player and the TV. This information is in the manuals, read the book.

Connectivity of a Blu-Ray Disc Player


Both should have a variety of different connection means; the standard red, white, yellow marked RCA type inputs, possibly S-video with separate audio (that would be the red, white mentioned before), possibly DVI.
Looking at the manuals for both or the available inputs on each, you should be able to match up the differing systems without problem.

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...

Hitachi 46F500 will not recognize a Playstation 3


It is my understanding that the 46F500 HD Ready only goes to 1080i and for Blu Ray you need 1080p. There are no ports for this format.

You need to upgrade to HD. Sd is going to look like you are playing 8-track quality sound on a cd player. Just not a good mix. You should be able to receive some HD chanels via your over the air antenna. Anothr great way to experience HD is to get a Blu-ray player and connect it with a HDMI cable.Your older DVD player may have 480p capability. That means it has a component cable on the back(Red Green Blue). You will still have to hook the audio up after that. Then go into your DVD menu and set it to progressive scan for a 16x9 widescreen. And buy widescreen DVD's from now on. They are made for that TV Good Luck. I reccomend Dish Network, or Direct TV. They both ave well over 100 HD channels and provide all the equipment for free. Once you go HD, you won't be able to go back!
