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.

How do I get closed captioning on a Samsung TV model TXJ2754?


Your TV displays the closed captions that are broadcast with some

television shows. These captions are usually subtitles for the hearing

impaired or language translations. All VCRs record the closed caption

signal and most pre-recorded commercial video tapes provide closed

captions. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television

schedule and on the tape's packaging: .

1 Press MENU repeatedly until you see the Setup menu. Press CH
to select "Caption."

2 Press VOL+ to open the Closed Caption menu.

3 Press VOL + to turn closed captioning on.

Misspellings and odd characters can occur in captioning. Also, there may be a

captioning delay after changing channels. Neither situation is a TV malfunction.

4 Press CH to highlight "Mode." Press - VOL or VOL + to choose

"Capt." (captions) or "Text." In caption mode, captions appear and

cover a small portion of the picture. In text mode, information unrelated

to the program, such as news reports, are displayed and
often cover a large portion of the screen.

5 If you wish, use CH , CH , or VOL + to change the captioning

channel or field. Then, press DISPLAY to return to normal viewing.

 Different channels and fields display different information, such as additional
languages or supplemental information

My Bush tv NR Itv 2101 on channels 1 & 4 picture is fine but channels 2,3, & 5 has a black band 1 inch deep top and botton. All channels say 4.3 so can't be that, any idea's. regards JM

it is because the channel is being brodcast in hd and not just digital. it is an unfortutane side effect of the dtv convertion, all brodcast are now digital but not all are high def, if you had a high def tv and were watching and standard definition channel it would have thick black line on the left and right because the image does not fill the dislay

Is this TV HD capable?

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,

ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")

I cant get high def 1080-i to work on my mitsubishi 55807

IYou have to have your comcast box tuned to a channel that is broadcast in HD. On your Comcast remote hit menu. This will bring up several icons, one is HD. Select that icon and it will bring up the TV Guide for just HD channels. Select one and tune to that channel. Once your on that channel use your original remote and hit menu, then advance features, then go down to video display and change it from 480 to 980 or 1080. Let me know if this helps.

Digital TV

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

Tv audio feed

You most likely have the SAP mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Normal" or "Stereo" (or even "MONO") mode to hear the regular television sound.

If it is in SAP (Secondary Audio Program) mode, as I believe yours is, you will hear other audio. Often this is a translation to another language, such as Spanish, and other times (notably with PBS stations) it is an unrelated audio (often music) feed.
