Question about Toshiba Televison & Video

Open Question

Toshiba 46in HD TV stuck in Stretch mode for all inputs. My Toshiba has 3 inputs - dish network dvr, panasonic blu-ray player and roku XD. When I select any of the 3 inputs, the left and right edge content is pushed off the screen in any Pic Size setting (4:3, theaterwide 1/2/3, native, natural). This makes me believe that it is a TV issue and not an input issue. I have tried powering off all inputs and the TV, I have tried resetting the TV to mfg default settings. Nothing seems to address this and Toshiba support just wants to blame the input devices.

The Panasonic doesn't detect the presence of the signal on the antenna input so it just skips it. shut down the player and turn the cable box on before attempting to switch sources.
But why aren't you using the Composite RCA connection on the cable box ? Not only you would get a much better image but the tv would detect that change in the AV source and should switch by itself. If it doesn't then the control processor is faulty and the entire mainboard will will have to be replaced

Th following hack should work for your model but you'll need a One For All Universal Remote Control.

This hack is written using a URC 8305 Kameleon 5 and should make the DVD Region Free but you can't change the Blu Ray to Zone Free.

The buttons on the Remote can be very sensitive and it's easy to press the buttons for too long once you have programmed and send the same code twice. For this reason set the 1 to 0 key press sequence up as a Macro on the RED button.

1) select DVD device on remote
2) hold magic button until the DVD button blinks twice
3) enter device code 0490 (DVD button blinks twice)
program buttons with the following codes:
1 - 00191
2 - 00120
3 - 00065
4 - 00180
5 - 00143
6 - 00155
7 - 00122
8 - 00117
9 - 00129
0 - 00123
4) hold magic button until the DVD button blinks twice
5) press 994 (DVD button blinks twice) (KeyMagic on a Kameleon)
6) press magic
7) enter 5 digit code from above
8) press button (1,2,3 etc..) where to program it (DVD button blinks twice)
9) press ESC on the Kameleon
10) repeat steps 1 to 6 for all keys.

Switch on DVD player, make sure theirs no disc in it.
Press the One For all Remote buttons in the following sequence
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0

If all works ok the Blu Ray player will reboot and when its finished it will not actually tell you its region free, just simply try it with different region DVDs.

Actually you should select Full Screen for what you need - it's the best setting if you don't mind the normal images being stretched. Wide will also work but sometimes the normal images will appear normal, not stretched - the image format here is done by the internal trigger from the signal.
The reset is for the image quality only, the format will be left untouched since there is no default setting.

I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?


Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

Can I use a HD receiver as input for the Toshiba XS35? Will it record HD signals? Will it record anything if the receiver is HD? I want upgrade my exisitng Bell Canada TV receiver box to HD - can I...


Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.

What channel does the tv have to be on - I have dish network - do I leave the dish off or on and move it to a certain channel?


First check what channel or input your TV is currently on bypowering the TV off then back on and noting the channel or input that appearson screen when the TV is powered on. If you are using a Coax Cable toconnect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver's back panel for the outputname. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4 out" (non-ViPReceiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, if it has"Home Distribution" output (ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 62or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) to connectreceiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears. In your casesince you have the Toshiba XDE500 connected between the receiver and TV, tuneTV and component to channel 3/4 (coax) or correct input. Hope this helps, andhank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

I have surroundsound. I have dish network with hd dvr. I have a sony bravia hd tv. I have a dvd player, and cd player. I have a magnavox dvd recorder. I want to record from my dvr to my dvd recorder. ...


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.

How do you connect dvd dr420 to dish hd reciver with dvr to give me the capabilityto record from my dvr to my dvd dr420? do you have a phone number? how much does it cost to join fixya?


Connect to the component outputs on the back of the dish receiver. This is the output for TV1. Then conncect the ouput of the dvd dr420 to your TV. I am using the HDMI output on the dr420 to connect to an HDMI port on my tv. This results in a 1080p picture on the TV which is sharper than the 1080i from the dish receiver's HDMI cable. My Sony TV has multipe HDMI ports so I can choose betweeen these 2 inputs and can see the differance since Dish only sends 1080p on it's pay for view channels.

Switch Toshiba projection tv to receive input from video-1?


jbrowne_usa

If your DISH remote is programmed to your Toshiba TV, you can press the TV button at the top left of the remote and then release. This will put the remote in TV mode. Press and release the TV/Video button just below the clear TV button. This will cycle through the inputs on your TV. Continue to press and release until you have Video-1 displayed on your TV screen. I hope this helps.
