Question about Hitachi 53FDX01B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hi-Def? Is this tv hi-def compatible? We replaced our old DirecTv receiver with an HD one ... and then picture isn't nearly as good as we thought it would be. The front of the tv says "Ultrascan HD" so we were stupid to just assume the tv is HD ready?!!!??? Granted it's 9 yrs old but my hubby thinks he remembers someone at the place he bought it saying something about it being an HD tv (back then it was still very very very new). Anyone???

Yes, it is HD TV ready but you must have a set top box from your cable or dish company that provides a Hi Def signal. The inputs must also be connected with the YRB cable. Only certain channels on my box are HD. The screen is so large that HD isn't nearly as impressive as some of the smaller models but it is still HD. I also have the 53FDX10B.

Picture problem on Panasonic 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.)

Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.


Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

Is the harmon kardon avr 225 receiver hi def? we had a "non" hi def tv hooked to our receiver and we are replacing the tv with a hi def LED. do we need a new receiver?


It does not have any of the usual HDMI or component video jacks on the back. The highest 'def' video it supports is S-Video (standard def).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-Video

It is NOT necessary to route video through an audio device. Your TV is the ultimate and most logical first recipient of any high def video content.

Whatever video you elect to pass through this thing is not modified in a good way if at all. You COULD just run the HiDef video straight to the TV and not have to worry about what could be happening in the excessive and unnecessary cabling that takes it for a trip through the receiver.

The receiver can still be managed by running its composite (standard def) video from the Monitor Out to a composite input of your new TV.

Likewise, no digital audio would improve from passing it through any device that just acts as a stepping stone to the receiver and ultimately your ears. That iswhy all decent A/V gear has provisions to run the signals separately to their optimum electronic end-user.

We are in Ghana we need frequency and we update to get more channel


Your flat panel TV is probably factory set to receive ATSC signals (Hi-def DIGITAL TV), whereas
Ghana may not have converted from analog TV (NTSC) yet.

Digital TV's cannot receive analog signals. I'm just guessing about whether or not Ghana supports
Hi-Def broadcasts - you'll have to check with (any) TV channel in Ghana. The Analog-to-digital
conversion is an expensive one at the broadcast end, and may not have happened yet in Ghana.

The US conversion took place by FCC mandate June 12, 2009.
There are available $65 (USD) digital-to-analog converters, but what you may need is an
analog-to-digital converter, which doesn't exist. Your Flat-panel TV amy have to wait until Ghana
begins broadcasting a Hi-Def TV channel.

For a HD antenna, a regular old rabbit ear-type antenna will do.

Activating HD mode


You do not activate or set the TV resolution at the TV, the signal feeding the TV has to be hi-def for the TV to show HI-DEF. TV will show what is being fed with, lo-def in = lo-def display.

No picture - only sound


Ok, on a hi-def tv, you must have a converter box capable of receiving Hi-def. If you are using a converter box from a satalite or cable tv service, try getting a Hi-def box. Also try hooking a vcr or dvd player to the tv in the non high def ports to varify that this is the problem. If you have any question please let me know, I hope this helps, good luck.

I HAVE A HI DEF BOX AND IT IS CONNECTED TO MY TV VIA A HDMI CABLE BUT PICTURE IS NOT HI DEF. DO I NEED TO ACTIVATE SOMETHING ON THE TV ITSELF?


HD signals are automatically sent from the receiver to the TV and are displayed as such unless there is a setting on the HD box in the on screen display to drop the signal to standard definition.

Its also imperative that you have HD programming and that that you are tuned to an HD channel. Since the box itself is backwards compatable it can display Standard Definition signals.

What is the model # of the box. Perhaps I can guide you to the settings.

Speaker distortion on SHARP 37" Aquos Hi Def


When you are changing channels you are using the tuner of the sat reeiver. the tv does not know you are changing a channel . It is just receiving a constant signal from the SAT receiver. I would suspect a problem with the receiver. Try another one first .

Is this TV HD capable?


This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...

... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...

1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...

Take care,
Rob

ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")
