Question about Hitachi 51SWX20B 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hitachi 51SWX20B is this TV HD ready?

The front of the TV says ''HDTV Monitor''. What does that mean? I have cablevision service and they have moved a lot of Channels to HD. What do I have to do to get those Channels.

Cablevision says that I have to get the set top box, is this the only way to get HD channels?

In answer to your question, you have an HD TV Monitor, which means that your television is capable of viewing high definition, but does not have an HD tuner. You will need a separate tuner or in the case of cable, a HD cable box. These are the only options that you have for viewing high definition channels.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Can I connect my laptop to my 51swx20b and watch hulu or dvds?


If your laptop has an S-Video output you should be able to connect your TV with the S-Video input (F connector) in the rear. You should be able to watch dvd and hulu if you have a good graphic card. But if you are looking to have something more permanent, I would recommend you a network-ready HD media player, like for example the Western Digital USB 2.0 WD TV Live Network-Ready HD Media Player. I have one of those and I can see HD movies that I download and put on my Usb, or I can see any media (videos, photos, music) that I have on any hard disk in the network. (Because the media player is connected to my router) The media player can work wireless if you install and additional wireless adapter. If your media player is Hulu-ready, you will see it immediately. The WD TV Live only has Youtube integrated. In my house, I converted my laptop in a Media Server with PlayOn and I can stream Hulu, CBC, CNN, etc. to my WD media player (in my case, wireless, but I want to connect them directly) and then to my TV (using a hdmi cable, you can also use a composite cable) It is about $230 in components: Media player ? around $130 Compatible wireless adapter ? 40$ (optional) PlayOn ? 40$ Cables and others ? 20$

Need help locating a box to make my TV receive true HDTV


You Dont need one your set is HD. So when the switch happens you are good to go. The only TVs that are going to need converter boxes is those who do not have HD or only have antenna.

Not really a problem


HD ready means that the set is not true HD but you can add HD . So the answer is that you will probably get a little better picture.

HD ready


From your cable service provider
HD ready just means that the tv can display the HiRes modes, you have to have a HiRes input, from either a HiDef disk player or a HD cable service

Your TV is an "HD-Ready" television. What this means is that your TV is ready to accept HD input from an outside source, but doesn't have the ability to produce the content itself. It is a monitor and does not have a digital tuner. Without a digital tuner (or for cable a QAM tuner) you will not receive OTA broadcast HD.

You need to purchase a High Definition capable set-top converter box. The converter box will have HD component out and may have HDMI out, either will feed your HD Ready TV.
