Question about Toshiba 32HFX71 32" TV

1 Answer

HD channels screw up when there is text or graphics on the Screen

The high Def channels look great. Until someone speaks Japanese and the translation comes up on the screen (subtitles that are in the show, not from the tv). It then cannot find the signal and just show digital static. This is especially bad during Football games. I am not sure if it is too much going on, or if it is the cg and the scoreboard messing it up. I had a cable guy come by to check out the signal and switch out the box and nothing helped. He said the signal strength was fine. Is there something I can do? I bought it used from a friend, so i am sure it is past its warranty. Thanks a lot.

Picture problem on panasonic Vierra 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.)

Just set up the bravia and the picture is not crisp... directions for trouble shooting?


do u have a hd box, because if you dont then your tv is not going to project the look that you want. and another thing is that is that if you have basic cable then you will not have the desire look you want. another you can do is check with your cable company and ask them what are your high def channels and then once you turn to them channels your tv should look clear as water lol. but not all channels are high def. and most lcd flat screen tv come preset so when you turn to a high def channel it will say at the top 108pi or 1080p or 4080i or p but its depending on ur service provider

Recording HD channels


well you would need to hook up cable box to dvd recorder. the only draw back first off is one you cannot get hd onto a dvd. you can down scale and it will seem a little cleaner than standard def but of coarse it will never be high def. I'm not to familiar with the motorola boxes but if they offer dvr's in your area i would suggestgetting one you can record all channels then afterwards transfer them to a outside device. but as i said before high def cannot fit onto a dvd unless you plan to copy one movie to 6-7 disc. Just keep in mind a standard high def channelcan only fit 2 max on one freq due to the amount of data transfer as opposed to 10 to 12 standard def digital channels

HDMI INPUT FOR NON HIGH DEF CHANNELS WILL NOT DISPLAY FULL SCREEN


if you have a cable box then it is probably the resolution settings in the cable box, what type of cable box do you have

Full screen view


in order to get the full HD experience you should be using HDMI cables. if you're using the white/red/yellow cables then your HD channels will not broadcast in full HD and you'll be stuck with the annoying black things around your screen

Brightness controls


Unfortunately, the x2gen company has declared bankruptcy and gone out of business due to legal trouble (x2gen.com). Manuals are no longer available online.

Unless you can find someone who can read the menus for you, or has an old manual laying around, I can pose a couple alternative, albeit tedious, solutions.

Using http://babelfish.altavista.com/ you can translate your menu... that is, you can type "BRIGHTNESS" in English, and request the Japanese translation. Locate the text in the menu that matches the translation. Tedious, yes, but it would work. To use this for non-arabic based character sets, you will need to install a Japanese font on your system, otherwise the text will return as "?????" question marks (in place of each Japanese character).

Another alternative would be to take a photograph of your menu screen and submit it to a forum to have an online user do the translation for you...

Just some ideas - hopefully you can make some progress...

Hd ready?


On any High Def TV, the reciever you need for this set, which does not have a HD receiver in it, is half the equation. Most HD channels have some HD content mixed with SD content on the same channel. SD content on HD signal from cable or satellite tends to be slightly blocky due to the native signal resolution and the resolution of HD (1080i/p or 720i/p).
