Snow screen on and off while on an HD channel

I have a Vizio 37inch LCD HDTV, and I have a cable box that is HD. I purchased an HDMI connector to hook up so I could see HD Channels. But there are times when I switch to an HD channel sometimes the TV goes back and forth from a white snow screen to the regular picture and then back again. Sometimes it gets stuck and I have to unplug the power cord from the back because the remote wont even turn the TV off. Now this only happens with HD channels or switching to HD channels. Could this be an issue with the bulit in HD Tuner or maybe a cheap HDMI cord? Or is it a TV issue that needs me attnetion to take back to Walmart? Any help woul dbe appreciated, thanks!

I' attempting to connect my hd cable box to my hd projection tv. i'm confused on where to connect component cable to tv. i haven't a clue what i'm doing or where to begin. i have the cable connected to the...

Please post the Brand/Model of you cable box and that of your TV so I can provide you with an answer that is more accurate than a guess.
The guess is, since we are talking about HD I will assume that your cable box has an HDMI connector and you have also an HDTV with HDMI connector somewhere in the back. In that case you will need an HDMI cable and that will connect both Audio and Video signal. Then you just set your input source selector on your HDTV to HDMI (if multiple select the number of the one where you connected the cable box), and you should be getting picture and sound.
Now, if your HDTV has no HDMI input then it will be very likely that you will have to use a Component cable that is ONLY for the "video" signal and looks like 3 RCA connectors color coded as Red, Blue, and Green. You will need to get and additional cable to feed the "audio" signal from the cable box to the HDTV using a stereo cable with RCA connectors which are usually color coded as RED and WHITE.
Note: This setup although better than nothing, is somewhat defying the purpose of having HD. The signal in Component connections are analog (although of better quality than Composite i.e. the old single video cable color coded as Yellow). The analog signal is limited by design and will get you only so far in your HD experience. The HD signal is digital and will yield the highest quality in both audio and video.
Assuming you are paying extra for channels that are HD then it would be worth it to do some more research or ask for help to one of your savviest friends so you can get the best gear and results with the least expense ;)
In all cases you should be able to see the programs and hear in stereo, your experience will vary as: - Your video signal may be a 480p instead of getting a higher 720p or 1080i. - your audio signal although some movies are available in 5.1 surround, not having a surround system will just give you the stereo sound from the TV.
Either way is your call how you want to experience your media... if you like to read more on the subject a quick start could be the TV glossary at crutchfield for instance:

I want to know what type of cable wire do you need to hook up for HDTV and where you hook it up at on the TV

HD can come from two types of cables. A RF cable, normally it is a RG 6 or maybe a RG 59 coax cable. A HDMI cable is the other method of obtaining HD on your HDTV. A HDMI cable has a rectangular shape with small pins, its about 1/2 inch wide by 1/8 inch in height. The RF connector is about 1/4 in circular. A HD signal can come from a cable box or it can come from a DVD or Blue Ray player. Google these type of cables and look on your TV for the connectors.

We just purchased the 500 series Samsung LCD HDTV. We have dish satellite. How do we hook it up. We are unfamiliar with the different types via HDMI, DVI, Component Cables. Your help would be...

first things first. is your satellite box HD compatible? if so, there will be a HDMI output on the back. if not, there will either be your typical red yellow red jacks, or possibly blue green red component cables. if HDMI is available, it is the optimal choice. if not, you can still use this box but will not be able to utilize your tv's HD functions. if you are not running any additional home theater accessories, that is all you need to get your dish up and running. to clarify, if you can use HDMI, you sound and video all run through the one cable. If your satellite box is not HD, i highly recommend upgrading to one.

I just hooked up a Time Warner Cable 4250HD Box via HDMI to DVI cable to a 50 inch Sony Grand Wega. The problem is on some channels the bottom of the screen (like a news crawl) gets cut off. This happens...

You need to make sure that the settings on your TV for the DVI connection are set properly. It sounds as if it is set to stretch or zoom. The reason the HD channels look great is that they dont zoom because the resolution fills up the entire screen without stretching.

I know you want to use your HDMI cables, but since you are going HDMI to DVI you are removing the benefit of the single cable since you still have to use audio cables. You are not going to get any appreciable difference between the setup yo uare using and the component (red, green, blue) cable.

If I have helped you, please rate me as such. It allows me to help others. Thank you.

Hi there,

Hooking up from hd receiver to hdtv ready projection tv. what cables do I use? vga or rca component red, blue, green and sync white/black? My hd receiver has output of :hdmi, rca component, s-video ,...

This particular television puts you in a tough bind - you can use Component cables in AV-1, but you won't be able to get HD. Or you can use the Component cables in the right-most component slot (AV-4), but since your HD Receiver probably doesn't have V/H Sync connectors, you may get a rolling picture. Try the component cables in the right-most slot - if the picture doesn't roll, you're in business.

Once again, I doubt that your model # is a 60pp9202, since that model doesn't have a VGA or DVI slot. If the picture rolls after trying the above, you will need to purchase a HDMI-to-DVI-D cable and hook it up from the HDMI output of your HD receiver to the DVI slot (that looks like a VGA slot) on the back of your Philips or Magnavox.

I purchased a SANYO-DP46848 42"HDTV. I have a Cable box and my cable provider (Time Warner Cable) provides free HD Channels. However.... I CANNOT PICKUP ANY HD CHANNELS ON THE NEW TV. WHY???...

I just got the same exact one, when it searches automatically the first time it doesn't look for digital channels. go to Menu>manual channel search>cable. it will look for all possible signals and will take forever probably. the free digital channels will take several seconds to switch channel to channel, but they're there! They will show up on your screen as "DC 91-2" or similar. you can switch back to regular cable channels with the input button, you just cycle through all the inputs. hope that helps.
