I assume that you are dissatisfied with the quality of the picture on the HDTV. Are you feeding it with an HD signal. First, it must be an HD source, either over the air HD or a cable channel in HD (not all "digital" signals are HD signals). Second, you must be sending it with the proper cable, either HDMI or at the very least RGB Component Cables (not composit video).

It is quite common to see standard definition on HDTV's actually look worse than on standard def sets. The reason is the extra pixles availble on the HDTV make you realize how low of resolution the standard def signal is. Instead of it just being fuzzy or unclear, it will actually look bad.

Fix tv picture


If the TV is receiving its signal from a cable TV box or DVR then you need to find out if the problem is in the TV or the cable box/DVR. Connect a different source to your TV such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a DVD movie. If the problem occurs again it suggests the TV needs repair. If the TV works OK when playing a DVD movie then that suggests that your cable box/DVR needs repair or replacement.
If your TV is receiving its signal directly from an antenna or cable outlet on the wall then you should try replacing the cable wire from the wall to the TV with a new wire. If that doesn't help then your TV probably needs repair or replacement.

How do i hook up mono tv with eterxnal speakers with a dvr box


If the DVR has RCA-type connectors, yellow to yellow for picture, and white to white for sound. Tune tv to line input.
If the DVR supports outputting everything on coax, use a piece of coax cable, and tune tv to channel 3.
Your coax cable from wall has to go into DVR first, then out to tv.

If you have the DVR connected to the TV with the Coaxial and the HDMI that is probably causing the problem I work for a Cable company and have dealt with this problem on numerous occasions. Try just disconnecting the Coaxial cable from the cable box that should fix this issue.

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Wavy lines and jogging TV picture


it could be any of the things you listed, the coaxial output on the dvr, where it says channels 3-4 out, the cable , or the coaxial input port on your tv. the dvd player is probably hooked up with rca cables (red white and yellow) so the reason you dont have the issue with it is because its on a different port, one solution would be to hook your receiver up to the tv using this kind of cable, this would also get you stereo sound, you would then watch dish network programming on a video input channel,
if you want to narrow the problem down, i would suggest hooking a vcr up with the cable thats connected to 3-4 out, play a tape and see if the issue continues, if not the issue is with the dvr, if so try a different coax cable, if this resolves the issue, the issue was the cable, if not unfortunately the issue is your tv
