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")

I purchased a RCA flat digital antenna to use with my JVC AV-20220 TV and I cannot get any channels to work. Not sure how to program the tv


That television has no digital reception capability. You need to get a digital converter for it. The format that is uses is called NTSC and it is no longer being transmitted in most places.

Digital TV


Hi,
right hdtv stands for high definitian tv witch basically means if you buy a hd dvd player or blueray then you can watch the films in really high quality alot better than normal dvd. The same if you had cable tv or sky you pay a fee for an hd converter then this lets you watch certain channels in high def. So it basically means that your telly is capable of using all the new hd equipment thats coming out like the playstation 3 can play high def dvd's as long as you buy the hd lead as you need this due to the fact that it sends more data to the telly their for giving alot better sound quality and alot better piture quality when watching hd dvd's.
At the moment their are only a few tv channels that are using hd at the moment but this will soon change.
So to watch hd dvd youll need an hd dvd player and to watch hd tv you need to contact your cable or sky people and ask them what you need to do to watch hd programmes. they will then upgrade your box and should send you an hd lead to plug into your telly from the sky or cable box.
Hope this is helpfull and easy to understand.

Hd is well worth having as the quality is amazing you wont believe it till you try it i was shocked as the detail and quality is mind blowing its like watching real life, it really is that good.

Let me know if you need further assistance ok

Dark picture and green tint


Most TVs of that caliber have a life expectancy of about ten years.. In 2009 we'll be passing into the HD era and that Tv won't work without a little help from an HD converter. What you're describing sounds like some transistor problems on the crt board and possibly voltage regulation. Not too expensive for a reputable shop, but my best advice would be to get an estimate first. If you need help finding a reputable shop contact NESDA, (National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn.) they should be able to direct you to a member's shop in your area. Its like going to the AMA to find a doctor. If the cost is more than half the cost of buying new - get a new one... Good Luck Bill
