Question about Toshiba 57HX81 57" Rear Projection Television
Wow, am I happy I found this website..
I got a 57HX81 from a neighbor a few months ago, and the picture is horrible when watching tv (regular cable). I don't know if it looked this bad when my neighbor owned it. When watching a DVD, the picture is clear and great. I had Comcast come out to see if the line was okay, and it tested good. This may be a dumb question, but do I need to get digital cable or an HD box?? Could that explain why the picture is so bad??
This may indicate a problem with the RF tuner. When you are using the DVD player is the output of the DVD using the F (RF Coax) Conncetor or is the DVD connect to the TV using the Video/Audio cables (either Composite (Red, White, Yellow) or Component (Red, Green, Blue)). I am do however believe this to be a RF tuner problem. Make sure that the TV is set to channel 3 and the cable box is connected to the TV (set to channel 3). What you could also do is get digital cable and use the video output jack as the input to the TV on one of your aux positions.
I would first make sure the tunner is on channel 3 when using the regular cable box, or if you are using the TV's cable ready features make sure the tunner is working correctly, this might have to be done by a qualifide TV repair person.
I hope this helps
