WHY CANT I GET HD CHANNELS ON MY ELEMENT ELECTRONICS 32 IN HD TV


To get HD channels you need to have a cable/satellite box that can receive HD channels AND you have to connect that box to the TV with either an HDMI cable or component jacks. A normal cable/satellite box won't work; neither will a coax antenna cable or consolidated video (yellow RCA) plug. Hope this helps!

How do i get hd channels with no cable ? just antenna


If your TV has a digital tuner, you can get any HD channels if you use the correct antenna pointed at the transmitter and are close enough to the transmitters. (Antennas labeled as HD are not always appropriate for your location.) Your TV will downgrade the signal to 480i if the TV can't support a 720p or 1080i resolution.

First where do you live? Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to determine the correct placement of your antenna for your area/stations. AntennaWeb uses a very conservative signal strength calculation despite assuming an external antenna. Tvfool will give the antenna color rating which is also provided on the antenna package. When properly installed (with no trees or hills blocking the signal), the matching antenna should receive the listed channel.

If you use a splitter to share the signal with several TVs, you may need an amplifier to bring the signal strength to that needed for the tuner to interpret the digital signal. (Note: amplifiers and splitters can fail and the amplifier may become a signal filter blocking the signal; test the antenna strength on a direct connection if there is a problem.)

If you do not have a digital tuner in the TV, you may have gotten an SD digital to analog converter. These are the more common (and available with the government coupon) converters. You will need to get an HD capable tuner to see the full HD signal.

Please add a comment with your TV model and antenna choice for additional support.

(antennaweb indicates that my external antenna should only get the stations 10 miles away. We actually receive the channels from 30 miles away. We use an amplifier splitter to feed the signal to several TVs. I set up two indoor antennas for a neighbor's TVs. One gets the signals from the transmitters 30 miles away and the other from the transmitter 10 miles away. Both get HD from the stations with HD broadcast (not all channels are in HD here). The difference is totally due to antenna placement.)

PICTURE SEEMS TO BE BLURRED WHEN ITEMS MOVE FAST ON SCREEN, ESPECIALLY PERSONS IN CLOSE UP.


The Sony Bravia KDL-32BX320 generally gets excellent reviews (4.5 stars out of 5) from owners, so I have to wonder what you're watching.

This is an HDTV and should excel when provided an HD signal to display. SD (standard definition) signals often look worse on an HD display than on an SD display. An HD signal is only available via the following ways (reference the image below):9_27_2011_4_28_11_pm.jpg
1) An "over the air" (UHF / VHF) antenna is connected to the cable / antenna input and there is a broadcaster of HD content nearby (only an over the air antenna can input HD signals to this jack - no cable boxes, etc.).

2) An HD Cable TV, DirecTV or Dish Satellite set top converter, Blu Ray Disk Player (or other HD source is connected via HDMI or Component RGB jacks.

3) An HD video played back from a computer hard drive connected to the VGA jack (when the computer is equipped with a modern processor and video card).


You will NOT be able to view HD video if:

1) The source material is a SD (non-HD) source. An over the air antenna will not provide HD signals if the broadcaster does not have HD content to show or is not capable of broadcasting in HD. Digital is not necessarily HD.

2) The source material (other than over the air antenna) is connected via Antenna / Cable jack.

3) The source material is connected via Composite jacks.

The USB jack is generally not an input for motion pictures, but may display stills - depending on the TV's ability to play the format they are stored in (jpeg, gif, bmp etc.).

Hopefully, this will help you solve the problem you're having with the picture. Good luck!

How do I get the free digital channels on my tv?


One way you can get free high quality digital channels is an HD antenna. In recent years, the government stopped broadcasting analog (non-HD) signals, and instead pumped out HD. They advertised their "converter box", that made it possible for people receiving their TV channels from antenna, to get HD.
If you currently have an antenna that you prefer to use, you can buy a converter box here.
But, the solution that in the end will get you more channels is a new HD antenna. They range from extremely powerful roof antenna's, to average tabletop antenna's. A roof antenna has more distance, but can be more hard to set up compared to the tabletop ones.
You can buy a variety of tabletop ones Here
Or, you can choose outdoor Here
You can learn to set it up Here
If your TV doesn't have HD capabilities ("HDTV") than you will need a converter box, which can buy at the link above ( or here.).
Hope this helped!

How do i hook up my hd tv to record hd channels to my vcr


this is a hard question to answer because you cant just record from a tv to a vcr if your recording from an antenna you would have to plug it directly into the vcr and the vcr wouldn't be able to use the digital antenna anyway, if your recording from a satallite or cable u would have to go directly to the vcr then to the tv and the vcr cant record in hd

I have an RCA DLP tv and it is on an antenna attached to the house the mast kind. I guess what I want to know is the picture comes in fine but then the picture breaks up or freezes. I am guessing it is...


You are correct in saying that it is a signal issue. There is not a lot you can do about it when using a outside antenna. You should be getting the best quality HD but you will always be limited by the reception. Since the HD signal is broad casted across the UHF spectrum, you may want to change the type of outside antenna you have to a UHF/HD type.
It will be a cost but the only other thing you can do is to get cable installed and that will also be a cost also.
Hope this helps,

How to see local channels in HD with a traditional antenna?


If your set does not have an ATSC tuner, for HD, then you need to be using a suitably equipped STB.

Your satellite STB - box - should take in OTA channels and display them as part of its normal operation, tho. It takes in the antenna signal from your roof antenna and displays the HD version of your OTA channels, if it is an HD STB, along with the HD channels it gets from the satellite overhead.
