Don't really have a problem but a question. We purchased a new Panasonic that receives the available HD signals directly through the cable. Does our older sony kf-60xbr800 have that capability if we connect from directly from the cable to the HDMI input on the set? The manual does not describe how to do this or what accessories are required. Thanks, Jean

There are many antenna systems available for Off-the-Air broadcast TV. It depends on space available mainly. There are internal (inside the home) and external mounted systems. Some external antenna can be mounted in the attic as well. External antenna are usually larger and cable of receiving signals from longer distances. They are either directional (point in one general direction at a time) ir omni directional (can receive signals from 360 degrees without physically aiming or pointing the antenna). They also can come with amplifiers/signal boosters, motors (to rotate the antenna for better recepton without manuall shifting it yourself). You can add splitters ti provide signals to more than one TV at a time. The number if channels you receive can depend on many variables so, depending on your location, how far away from the broadcasting antennae you are, and how you mount your antenna, the number of channels & quality of receive signals will vary.
Good news is there are websites on the Internet that can help immensely, so you don't to hire an electrical engineer!
Your plasma tv will display HD content when you connect an HD source (Blu Ray Disk, Sony PS3 / PS4 or Xbox 360, HD Cable Box, HD satellite, etc) via the TV's HDMI1, HDMI2, Component1, Component2 jacks or if you connect a UHF/VHF TV antenna (not cable box, etc.) to the "Ant" connector *and* you're close enough to a broadcaster with HD content to view.
Using any other input will produce only the lesser quality SD video signals. Review the manual - linked below - to help you connect the components you have.
HD Video FROM your TV???? Video goes TO the TV and gets there either via direct tuning of an HD air station or from a Cable?SAT box, BluRay player... The unidentified TV's manual should cover that.
The Onkyo's manual covers most of the rest.
NO signal ever benefits from multiple connections or 'hops' and it gets expensive zig-zagging a signal all over the room. K-I-S-S is the word of the day. Run the BEST version of any signal directly from its source to the BEST electronics that will present it to you for consumption. The separation of audio and video inputs and outputs on a device is what allows and ENCOURAGES the routing of each signal to the BEST electronics that can process it. Example: your TV does not have the best speakers in the room so why send it any high-end audio?
If the sound actually comes from an external source treat that source like any other hi-end audio component and attach its highest quality audio directly to the receiver according to ITS manual. The separation of audio and video inputs and outputs on a device is what allows and encourages the direction of each signal to the BEST electronics that can process it.
Unable to decode HD is a common banner display message with these
combos. It simply means the unit is not engineered to process HD
signals. It is a model series limitation; not a fault as such.
This model incorporates a SD (standard definition) integrated digital tuner. It is a major pain in the proverbial not being able to receive HD, and not being able to skip them in any setup menu.
The only thing you could really do here is connect an external HD digital set top box (which would also contain SD channels) directly to the recorder's AV inputs at the rear, and then selecting the appropriate input on the combo unit to suit the source. You could then choose whether to view/record HD or SD via this method, rather than use the unit's built-in tuner.
Works just as well, with minimal error, depending on the signal strength and type of DSTB used.
It's crude, but cheaper, and does not require repairs or messy wiring.
You should be able to receive the HD signal from your cable company. If you are still receiving your signal over the air, then you can buy an HD tuner. I found mine at Best Buy for $179 a few years ago. It will come with component outputs which is the HD signal.
I'm using my 70's vintage antenna on my house to receive the 3 local channels in HD.
No, you would be better off sending the video signal from your sources(satellite,digital cable,DVD,BluRay player,any digital HD source,etc.)directly to your Samsung TV, and then use the fiber optic output from the TV to transfer the audio signal to your Denon receiver, or another way is to send all video signal to your TV and send all audio signal to your Denon receiver seperately, keep in mind that there really isn't a good reason to send video into a Denon receiver, that processes sound not picture! Good Luck !
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.
HDLCD2600 come set for cable. Make sure the tv is set for "tv" or "air" then run the auto channel memory or search feature of the set. If you have the manual it's under "memorizing channels". If your still have problems, call Sansui TV's customer service number 800 289 0980.
