Question about Televison & Video

HDTV Setup I just got a new HD TV and I'm not quite sure how to set it up. Time Warner gave me RCA cables and I think to get the best picture I need HDMI cable.But given this, when I run the cable line into the converter box do I need to run the cable from the out line to the TV and the HDMI cable or just the HDMI cable? I tried setting up with just the RCA cable coming from the converter box but the message on the TV stated weak or no signal.

    I cannot get Hi Def function when I use the "hi def" cables from the cable box to the t.v. I have had the box replaced - so I know it is not the cable box. I can only use the co-ax cable from wall to cable box and from cable box to t.v. Hi def function on t.v. does not work. What can I do.

Got the digital set up box from Time Warner Cable but they did not include hook-up instructions.


If you have an HDTV, you can hookup HDMI cable from set-top-box to the HDTV's HDMI input and select that input on the TV using your remote. If you have analog TV, you can hookup using RCA cables (yellow to yellow, white to white). You could also call Time-Warner for assistance.

I just bought a new plasma tv. I cannot seem to


You Plasma TV is probably an HDTV, which means you need to change the settings on your Wii to HD. Just go to the Wii menu and modify the TV settings. If you don't want to do that, make sure you connect your RCA cables to the non-HD slots on your TV so that the yellow RCA cable is in the yellow slot and not the green HD slot.

Do i need time warner converter to recieve hdtvor is tv tuner capable of hdtv


The answer is not as easy as you might think.
1. Since you poted this as a Generic tv, i don't know if you have a digital tuner, check you owners manual and see if a digital tuner is included in your set.

2. You need to contact time warner cable and see if they are broadcasing your local chanels in hd, Here where we are in ohio they are but i cannot speak for the time warner cable where you are at.

If you need a more specific answer reply with model and where you live.

Picture quality for gaming


Match the PS3's output resolution to your TVs (in this case 720p).
Don't sit too close, otherwise you'll start to see individual pixels.
Make sure the HDMI cable is good quality.
As for picture settings, they will very so much according to the viewing conditions that i cannot give you settings that are gauranteed to work for you. But sharpness should always be 0 when dealing with HD content.
If you want to really get the best picture from your TV, try using a THX disc to calibrate it. Luckily these are normally included on Disney PIXAR DVDs, so go find yourself a copy of CARS or something. Follow the instructions of the THX setup, and you should have youself a sweet looking picture in no time.

Hope this Helps.

Dvd is grainy picture


You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!

KP-53HS10 Real HD


On this TV there is only one input for any HD resolution. Input # 5 is the component input i.e. red/green/blue cable. Just get the correct cable and match colors from cable box to TV this will allow the TV to display 1080i resolution ( only one this TV supports ). FYI you will also have to connect the red and white cables to the appropriate inputs to get any sound because red/green/blue connectors are just for video display not sound. Once your connected you'll be able to access video # 5 be sure to set your cable box to 1080i resolution also. I hope this helps later J.

it's probably the Time Warner cable box that have issue and not the TV. Try using a DVD player and test the same input, it should work fine.
