How do I get my tv to scan the digital channels? I have used the channel scan and it will not let me scrowl over to scan them . I do not have a digital box but was told that this tv has one bilt in.

Although your TV is hd ready, it does not come with a digital tuner built into it.
You will have to add an external tuner box to receive digital broadcast stations.
I don't suggest getting one of the cheap ones, as the only provide an SD signal at 480p, clear compared to old analog tv, which was usually 320, but still a far cry from 1080p.

A good tuner box should only run around 60-70 dollars or so, and the picture quality will amaze you on your 51F510.

The tv has a 1080p engine built into it, so if it receives an input with a 1080 signal, it can display it properly.

Cheaper boxes may only offer 720p as it's highest definition output, so get the better box.

You can find them at all major electronics stores, like Fry's and Best Buy.

Hopefully, you do get a digital box for your set, it would be a shame to not get the most out of what is arguably the best quality rear projection tv that was ever made.

I hope this helps you out.

Feel free to give me a top rating if I helped you out, it helps to keep my status up on Fixya.

Thanks, and have a good day !

COMP 1 and 2 are for 480i/p sources. Hook it to the 1080i capable on the back. Also make sure the HD DVR is outputting 1080i not 720p. The Mits can not disply 720p and will show a scrambled screen if you try to.

Picture not to edge of screen

That is because you are watching the picture in the 4:3 aspect ratio. This is normal when you are watching a channel that is being broadcast in 480 or digital. But once you tune to a station that has 1080 or at least 720p which is true high def then the picture should expand to 16:9 aspect ratio. It will switch between the two automatically as it determines what type of signal it sees. You can force the resolution to change by pushing the format or aspect ratio button on the remote but you will lose picture quality.

We have the 61" Samsung. WE LOVE IT!!! We have a DirecTV DVR box. On the DirecTV remote there is a "format" button. It cycles through all the different options. (Pillar Box, Stretch, 720p,1080p, etc.) Adjusting the picture setting with the Samsung remote is not the same thing. Try using the cable remote......see if it works the same as mine.

I have the NS-PDP42 42" PLASMA 720-P and I would like to know how to change the screen resolution for hdmi devices. In the user guide it says to change it to 1280 x 720p but it does not tell how to...

There's no way to tell the HDMI input whether it should take 720p or 1080i input on this set. The best thing to do is experiment. Set your Comcast box to 720p and watch it that way for a while, then set it to 1080i and watch it for a while. The PDP42 has to do a little picture manipulation in either mode, but I think you'll find that the 720p mode will work best for you. I have this set with Verizon FiOS and I have the FiOS output set to 720p. Looks great, no complaints.

    No picture

    It's likely the Ssb is out, Philips p/n# 319801634710 which on a difficult scale of 1-10 is about a 6 or 7 for repairs. That is a DPTV310 chassis and somewhat tight quarters inside. It's not so bad taking the strappings loose to get at the board but a tight area to work through getting the standup board unplugged from the signal board. One noteable caution: unplug the set for at least 10 minutes before opening the back VERY STATIC SENSITIVE..

    How do i get 1080p

    How did you get 720p? I have having trouble viewing anything above 480p. When using my directv HD DVR, the screen goes black when it tries to show anything above 480p. Is it the tv or the DVR?
