Question about Hitachi 60SBX78B 60" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

No recption pass channel 12

Someone gave me this set today and I can't get the channels to come in. We have cox cable, on the other set channels 1-99 was programmed. First off the connection in the back looks funny. Channel A does not have a standard coax connection , then comes the "to Converter" option or last Ant B with standard connection. This is the connection I chose ANT B. Pictures 1-12 come in and the rest like espn, CNBC etc is not comming in. I did the auto program as well. What can my problem be. Is this not a cble ready TV?

In set-up, select TV / CATV, then choose CATV.......
Next step is auto-program.......should memorize 2-99....
Consult owner manual or download..........just a thought....T.

Judging by the year, this set should definitely be cable ready. check the front of the tv if it has a control panel for a switch that says catv/normal or something similar, if it does not have that switch, check the settings via the remote.

the channel a connector may require an adapter depending on the type of connector. i had an old tv that required an adapter in order to plug the cable coax into it, it resembled an rca connector and is used on some older tv's in place of a screw on connector.

if all else fails, your cable company should be able to provide you with a tuner/converter for free or minimal charge.

i hope this helps,

We've had our 32" Vizio TV for about 4 months now and up until about 2 weeks ago, everything was working fine and all channels came in. Now, we only get about a quarter of the channels that we used to...

go to menu settings, find add/delete channel or programming or tuning. There should be an option that says "autoprogram" select this option and let the program run thuroughly. It will read and install all available channels. Do make sure tv is set to CATV and that it is NOT set on AIR.

Hi Someone gave me this old Sanyo TV Model # 31C4760, When I connect it with my cable it catches only basic (13 channels) instead of 60 channels. How should I see all the channels? What should I do?

If it is very old (with rotory/manual channel changer), you are out of luck unless you get a cable box from your cable company - this will let you set your TV on channel 3 or 4 and the cable box will find all stations for you. The cable box goes between your wall cable and your TV.

It your TV has an electronic tuner with a remote, try going into the setup menu and select signal source as CATV instead of antenna.

Please rate me.

Recording HD channels

well you would need to hook up cable box to dvd recorder. the only draw back first off is one you cannot get hd onto a dvd. you can down scale and it will seem a little cleaner than standard def but of coarse it will never be high def. I'm not to familiar with the motorola boxes but if they offer dvr's in your area i would suggestgetting one you can record all channels then afterwards transfer them to a outside device. but as i said before high def cannot fit onto a dvd unless you plan to copy one movie to 6-7 disc. Just keep in mind a standard high def channelcan only fit 2 max on one freq due to the amount of data transfer as opposed to 10 to 12 standard def digital channels

Ittermittent digital audio drop out on some channels

Did the issue ever get resolved. I have similar issues with a connection to Cox Cable HDTV and Onkyo TX-DX989. All sources (DVD Player) sound fine and not issues except channels 706 and 710 on Cox Digital receiver. I had Cox replace the HDTV receiver and the same issue occurs. I've tried optical audio and also the COAX audio ports with the same issue. The workaround I have found is to set the audio to "Other" on the Cox box, but the volume then has to be turned up quite a bit.

I Am Having Trouble Tuning My Channels On My VCR.

Hey is the VCR set for cable? even if it's not a local channel
could try to come in. turn the blue screen off on the VCR that
might solve your problem. If the channel is weak the blue screen will come on and block it. you can turn it off by going into
your VCR settings. Also If the cable is weak a splitter will
cause this you might have to hook the cable up directly to the
VCR to record it and watch it through the VCR. that's was may
problem once.
also you can tune channel 12 to your VCR manually if it is too
weak because of a nearby local channel it won't tune in automatically.
