Question about Hitachi 50UX57B 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

HD Ready? We've just bought a surround sound system and a new HD Star Choice satellite receiver and when we got this TV about 6 years ago I'm sure we were told that it was HD ready. I've misplaced our manual and I'm sure the issue is a setting or something to make it HD ready. If you have any info that would help me that would be great.

Toshiba Tv - Does it have a digital tuner?

That unit has a NTSC tuner. May be HD Ready but it does not have a digital tuner. Unless you live quiet close to a local Broadcaster, rabbit ears would be useless.
The only way you would be able to get HD is using a HD Set Top Box, HD Satellite System,
or HD Cable BOX, using the Componet or HDMI inputs.
Hope this helps

No digital reception with HD ready TV.

Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.

I have a Star Choice canadian Satellite and hooked up the DVI to the HDMI on my Tv I get a great HD picture but no sound i tried the Audio cable as per the instructions but still no sound will i need a...

dvi is just video. hdmi has both video and audio. dvi is still used because it is a standard for computers.

connect the audio from the audio rca jack to your TV / speakers. If you have surround sound you should use the SPDIF optical audio port - it'll be cleaner and support all channels.

Remember audio has to go to an amplifier or all-in-one box, which goes to your speakers. If your speakers are built into your tv you should be able to plug it in directly and then select the audio channel on your TV. If you plug it in and you still don't hear anything it's a problem with selecting the correct audio input on your TV / amplifier

How do I get HD broadcasts on a Phillips 60PP9352 TV that's 'HD ready'?


Im guessing your in the UK.
Asking about HD as you havent stated what country you are in.

Ok You will need the following to be able to watch HD pictures on your tv set.
Either Sky HD which involves having a dish fitted. Or Virgin cable system which is not available all over the country.
If you go to either of these systems you will need to pay a subscription to view the HD channels.

Surround Sound Installation

The Hitachi 50UX57B is a 50 inch standard projection TV with a standard screen. It is not HD ready. If you need it, I think I can download the owner's manual (in PDF format) from Hitachi and foward it to you.

Image from HD receiver larger than TV screen

Most satellite boxes have a zoom,stretch mode that might be incorrectly set. i would check that first before dooming an issue with the TV.
