Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

WS-55809 HD1080

DISH network installed - said 35 HDTV Channels - Our TV has been in storage for 4 yrs., working great - however, it was label at time of purchase HD Ready. DISH said their receiver/tuner makes our TV HD ready? Is that true? of course the repair guy had it on the Animal Channel and it wasn't an HD channel to test.

Do we need anything else to make it HD ready?

I am setting up my proview pa-32jk1sa, for the first time. we have dish network, but all my tv says is please scan channels. i have my coaxial plugged into hdtv, and also went to settings for hdtv and set...

chances are that your reciever is outputting conventional NTSC .. not high def ... so you would scan for standard channels not hdtv .. if chanel selection is done by the satelite reciever then the scan will only find one channel 3 or 4 usually (or better yet you can use Svideo or component oututs if it has them .... if the receiver is a block converter that uses the tv to tune channels then you should get more channels detected ..

You can not change channels on Satellite with your TV tuner card. The satellite box decodes the sat signal (it is sent encrypted) you can run S-Video/RCA/HDMI depending on the video card input, but you will be required to change the channel on the Dish box. The TV card can only change channels on broadcast (over the air) channels, you can attach an antenna and it will use the NTSC tuner to change analog channels (if they are still available) and the ATSC tuner to change digital/HD broadcast channels. This card (from your description can ONLY deal with broadcast TV, You will need a TV card with a QAM tuner for unscrambled digital cable. There is no solution for directly interfacing with Satellite on a PC or Mac (DirectTV or Dish) the signal from the satellite is encrypted and requires (at least for DirectTV, a fairly complicated decryption setup to function, this is handled by the tuner box/card combination. Sorry your setup will not support changing the channel on the PC, you may be able to find some kind of software that can utilize an IR transmitter to change the channels on your satellite box, similar to the way a Tivo or other DVR can talk to cable boxes, but that is the best you will be able to do as far as channel changing.

WS-B55. HDTV Receiver. Suggestions

Have to call DTV and find out if it is worth it. My rear projection TV was built in August 2002. It works very well and with the "digital" image that comes with the provider reception is very good.
