Question about Sharp Aquos LC-45GX6U 45 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

4 Answers

No AVC media box

I am at a real loss.  I bought this television off of ebay not realizing that I need the avc unit to make it fully operational.  It is only a monitor until I find the unit or some other compatable unit for it.  Sharp doesn't sell it any more......  Any suggestions?

You should be able to use this with only the DVI connection as just a large monitor. You can use a DVI to HDMI adapter as I do believe the display is HDCP compliant. Many AV receivers will upscale to the necessary 1920x1080p resolution that the display needs.

Ladyye is looking at a 480 resolution image. The adapter does work as proven by an image on the monitor screen. The monitor can not resolve the signal.

You must provide a 1080 signal or the picture will either not display or display junk.

A HTPC with a video card that resolves 1080 or an upconverting A/V receiver or a game console that delivers 1080 or any source that can send 1080 to the monitor is required.

To use a HTPC as a tv tuner for the monitor it will have to include a tuner card or some other means to input television broadcasting. Cable tv can be processed through a tuner card but that includes some caveats as well.

Get good information about tuner cards and the cable system used before purchasing.

You should contact Sharp directly at 800-237-4277 as they may be able to get you the AVC box. They do not sell it on any website - just thru the support line.

The DVI to HDMI adapter doesn't work with my TV.  It looks like it isn't converting correctly, as i only see a small box in the upper left hand corner with lines.  The DVI connection works fine with my imac, but i want to be able to watch my cable tv.  ANy other suggestions?

I need a functional Sharpe Aquaa LC-37HV4U "AVC system" only. My flat screen keeps giving me the "loss of sync" and what I gathered online is its either a bad cable, port or AVC. Ebay only seems to have...


I have to agree with the cable, but trying a little compressed air on the fittings of both the cable and the port may help alleviate this issue. Give that a try before replacement.

I can't play movies on my tv


Okay, this monitor setup is a little strange. There is an "AVC" component with this monitor that you use to connect everything. There is a 4 cable string (power, s-video, DVI, display port) that connects the AVC unit to the monitor. You must have all external equipment connected to the AVC unit, not to the TV itself. The connections on the TV talk to the AVC unit. I will assume you will be connecting the Blu-ray player via HDMI. HDMI is on input 4 on the back of the AVC unit. hit the input button on the remote or the TV and select input 4. There is a way of customizing the inputs to read out what you have connected to them (ex. DVD, VHS, etc.) to make it easier to use. This should get you signal from your blu-ray

I have had very few problems with the AVC boxes with this model and find most times the shut down is due to a failed power supply mod. in the tv.
