Hey nothingsfree,

You may not necessarily have anything incorrectly set up, but there are a couple of things that I would suggest trying.

First, you'll want to make sure that your TV is set to the correct input source. Some TV's will require that the input source be changed in order to display any signals from an external device, like your HD-DVR. This can typically be done by accessing the main video menu using your remote control.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to change the input source for this model TV (Samsung LN46A750) by doing the following:

* Press the "Menu" button on your remote control
* Press the "Up" or "Down" arrow button to select "Input," then press "Enter"
* Press "Enter" to edit the "Source List"
* Highlight the signal source for the HD-DVR, and press "Enter"

Next, you may want to try updating the TV's firmware. In some instances, simply updating a TV's programming can eliminate any potential hardware or software conflicts between two devices. To update the TV's firmware you will need access to a computer and a USB flash drive. Step-by-step instructions and the firmware update itself are available through the following website:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDown.do?group=televisions&type=televisions&subtype=lcdtv&model_nm=LN46A750R1F&language=&cate_type=all&dType=D&mType=FM&vType=L&prd_ia_cd=02010100&disp_nm=LN46A750

Make sure to read all the warnings and disclaimers available though, as your TV may already have a more up-to-date firmware version than the one that can be obtained through Samsung's support page.

Should neither of these address the issue, you may wish to see if connecting your HD-DVR to a different HDMI input solves the problem. Much like computers, TV's have been occasionally known to have faulty inputs or loose internal connections.

If all else fails, I’d suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. In many cases manufacturers are able to provide over-the-phone troubleshooting support, in addition to having access to a wider variety of possible remedies for hardware problems.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Probably a handshake problem with the cable box. It is common for cable boxes to have HDMI handshake problems. Hook the box up using the component cables and you should be fine

Try resetting the TV by holding down the "up" button on the remote (with the TV powered on) and then, while you hold down the up button on the remote, hit the power button on the TV. This should do a "factory reset" which will wipe all settings in the TV. There is no reason why the TV should not "remember the last input it was on when it was ;last turned off. Also be sure that the TV is not plugged into a switched AC outlet, like the outlet on the back of the cable bix. The TV should be plugged into an output that receives power at all times.

Brand new emerson led tv has this red tint to it. I have the cable hooked up to the at&t u verse cable box and just a basic cable cord going from the cable box to my tv. Would a hdmi cable fix this


You would definitely want to try using a HDMI cable.
Your current hookup requires signal conversion too many times resulting is quality loss and more chances of introducting errors and this might be where your red tint is coming from.
Assuming AT&T is providing you digital signal at 720 resolution or higher, the box then has to convert back down to composite video (340 resolution) in order to send it to your TV over the basic cable cord. Your TV then takes this low resolution signal and blows it up to fit your nice new flat screen TV.
Skip all that and use HDMI and you'll get the best picture that your provider is sending you. The digital input stays digital and is passed onto your TV over the digital HDMI cable with no loss to video or audio.

Samsung lcd 720 ln32b360 doesn't fill screen in 16:9 mode. Went through tv setup, connected it to hd box (verizon Fios) plays all HD channels but does not fill screen as it should. TV is connected to set...


If by regular cables you are talking about the standard red/yellow/white composite cables, then, yes, it will affect HD as composite cannot send an HD signal. Only HDMI and component (red/blue/green video only) cables.

Change to HDMI and let us know if it works for you.

My hdmi port is not working


I have Verizon Fios and there's a known issue with the motorola HD boxes that they have bad hdmi ports, the screen goes green and that's it, nothing I can do about it I just use component cables. You need to be sure it's your tv not the cable box. Try the hdmi on a dvd player or ps3 or whatever else you have first just to be sure it's the tv at fault not the cable box. If you determine it is the tv you need to replace either the main board or the video board depending on your specific tv model. Some have the video inputs on the main boards some have video boards.

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.


If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

HDMI crap out


I got the solution. Contact Customer Service, ask for LEVEL II Tech, and ask them for the old firmware. It will take a lot of pressuring, but they will send it to you and then it will work fine!
