Question about Mitsubishi VS-60805 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box

My Mitsubish VS-60805 is connected to a HD DVR cable box and a DVD player. The TV works great with the DVD player (picture is in HD) but with the cable box for television viewing I get a blank blue screen when I try to view HD channels. Non HD channels are fine. I switched cable boxes with one that is attached to another TV in my home (that DOES show HD channels)and is connected the same way the Mitsubishi is) and it still doesn't work. THe HD box output is 1080i but I could only select 480 or 980 on the Mitsubishi setup screen on the TV...... could that be the problem? Help.... I just bought this TV from someone who only used it in straight coax cabl mode (no HD) so they don't know if it ever worked. I had the Mitsubishi TV guy here and he says there is nothing wrong with the TV....supected the cable box was bad. I got a new one and it still doesn't help. Any advise?

Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Are you connecting these devices to the ColorStream inputs?

If so you will need to set the output settings on the DVD player or your camera to 480i. You have an HD capable TV but it is old technology and is not capable of handling the signal levels produced by HD equipment these days.

Look at the menu options on your equipment and most of them have the ability to put out the lower level signal or just hook them up using the standard yellow/red/white inputs. Hope this helped.

Good Luck..

Can't record from tv to dvd


I think you would have to run your sat line through the DVR-1600 first (Line In) then connect directly from the DVR to one of your TV Line-Ins (Audio R, Audio-L, S-Cable Video).
And then use the Cyberhome TV Tuner to record off your sat.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
