Hitachi 42PD6000ta HDMI > Topfield HD STD HDMI issues

I have a similar problem, my 42PD6000TA does not like to connect to my new HD STB Topfield TBF-7200. I did find a way around it though. I turn my STB on first, wait until it sets to a channel then I turn my Hitachi set to HDMI input and it connects properly. But I cannot switch away from the HDMI input and switch back as again losers the connection. Strange and very, very annoying. I wonder if there's a simple way to fix it.

What source do I use when connecting Topfield box to LG plasma tv


That depends on what cable is connected to the TV. If the Topfield has an HDMI port then use an open HDMI port on the TV. They are numbered, so the source would be whatever number the cable between them is connected to.

I have started setup for hd cable. Am connected to hdmi and have picture and sound but am unable to change channels. What do I need to do.


With the HDTV set for an HDMI Input that matches the HDMI Jack that you've connected to the cable HD STB (set-top-box or "converter"), use the cable STB remote to change channels on the STB - not the TV.

You can not change channels of the STB with your TV remote. You may however, be able to program your STB remote to operate your TV. Most will allow you to power the TV on / off; volume up / down / mute; change input (HDMI1 / HDMI2 / ANT / Composite / etc.) and even some of the more complex functions as well. Contact your cable company for more details.

Wont receive digital channels after scan non found


Hi Patrick,

You must have a UHF / VHF antenna connected to the antenna input of the TV to scan for digital channels. Most new TV's have a threaded, round 75 ohm coax cable connection for this - but yours might even have connection consisting of 2 small screws to connect a 300 ohm twin lead antenna cable instead. Use which ever yours has.

If you are using this input for the input of a cable TV "set top box" (STB), satellite STB, or similar, you will likely only find a single analog channel (Ch3 or Ch4) after a scan as the scan will only find the output of the STB - which is usually on Ch3 or Ch4 - and not be able to scan the STB channels.

Additionally, the antenna input of the TV will only provide a standard definition picture if connected via coax cable from the STB. It will only provide a high definition picture if connected to a UHF / VHF antenna and a broadcaster is close enough for its signal to be received by the antenna. The way to obtain the best possible picture (high definition) when using an STB for tuning channels is to use an HDMI cable between the STB and TV. An HDMI cable will provide the very best picture and audio signals from the STB to the TV; all over a single cable and is the recommended practice.

I hope this helps!

Cant Tune my Topfield TF4000T STB on a Centrex 51cm TV


Is your aerial plugged to Antenna In (not RF In)? Is the Topfield new, or a few years old? Do you see the Topfield menus on the TV?

I AM FROM INDIA I RECENTLY PURCHASED AN AIRTEL DTH HD VERSION, SINCE I HAVE A SAMSUNG LCD MONITOR (SYNCMASTER 2233sw) WHICH SUPPORTS FULL HD (1920X1080). MY MONITOR RUNS FULL HD WITH DVI CABLES OF...


Hi gurmeet,

What I suspected from your description of problem is that there is some kind of compatibility issue or content protection when you plug in an additional HDMI to DVI converter.

I am also using an Airtel HD connection, though however, I wouldn't need any kind of converter because I am directly connecting HDMI cable to my LCD and it works like a wonder. I set up my box output resolution to 1080i and there is no display resolution mismatch. Not even at other resolutions.

Airtel is using 1920x1080 resolution in signal transmission, so the possibility of 1079 from there end is ruled out, otherwise, the same problem would have been observed when direct HDMI cable is being used. I hope you understand my point.

Now you might also ask why you weren't able to see this problem when you connect the monitor to your PC graphics card. I would like to tell you that graphic cards are very versatile and does have the capability of 1:1 pixel mapping, so there you wouldn't see any such problem.

read this link for more http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdtodvico.html , where a person is able to match resolution using a similar converter.

I believe the converter you use isn't able to do 1:1 pixel mapping and is actually downgrading the resolution which your monitor is not able to support.

You can try out other resolution type from the STB and if you still see similar problems, then you may need to get an alternative converter.
Follow these steps to change the STB resolution type;
Enter the Menu from STB remote -> scroll to 'My Settings' -> Enter 'System Setup' -> 'HD Setup'. Here you change to a lower resolution and press ok from remote.

Without additional equipment it can't be done. As i see your VR-606 pure analog device, and you trying to somehow use 5.1 sound from HD STB that is on HDMI put on RCA connectors of your VR-606. It is impossible without converter from HDMI to Analog audio or something likethis, best way to buy new receiver with HDMI input and TV neither Receiver with HDMI out oportunity. Then you will have your home cinema. In your current setup probably you can play only with stereo from your stb.

HDMI crap out


I got the solution. Contact Customer Service, ask for LEVEL II Tech, and ask them for the old firmware. It will take a lot of pressuring, but they will send it to you and then it will work fine!
