Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

2002 Sony 57 inch XBR

I just got a HDTV box from my cable company and hooked it up to the TV, I believe I have hooked it up properly, but I do not feel that the picture quality is all that much better. Above the red, green and blue inputs are inputs that read HD and VD, should something be going into those?

My 65 inch Mitsibishi rear projection lost the red when viewing Cable, but the red works when viewing dvd's or playing games. Is it the red color tube or somthing less sinister?

Okay - lets' verify a couple of things -
1) how do you have cable connected - through -
A) Cable box or
B) no Cable box and the RF Coaxial Cable directly connected into the Rear Projection RF input connector.

\What I believe is that you have possibly a Component cable 'Red - Green - Blue' that is hooked up between your cable box and your TV.
Now the issue is that the Red connection isn't pushed in all the way on either the TV or the Cable box.
Let me know.

Hi! just need to know if my tv is ready for digital tv i have the sony kp-57ws520. i've hooked up my antenna and i still dont get a picture thanks for any info.

Your Sony KP-57WS520 television has an analog tuner, so you may need a digital tuner or a converter box to continue to receive over-the-air programming.
If you subscribe to a cable or satellite service, your television viewing should not be affected by the June 12, 2009, cut-off date for full-power analog broadcasting. Please contact your service provider for complete information.

Toshiba 57H81 Rear Projection HDTV

Your cable company should be able to supply an HD settop box that has component video output for HD. I have one from Cablevison. It is a Scientific Atlanta (SA) 4200HD.

Sony 57 Inch XBR 2001

I don't have the XBR, but on my sony, using the cable box remote, I had to go into menu/display/etc. and mark the 1080i, 720p, and 480i settings. you usually get a "if you can see this" comment if your tv accepts the settings. for standard tv i set the screen to normal, and when the upper channels go to HD, they auto go to full screen. Sounds like you are using the component cable, and also make sure you are on the video port of remote, and the the TV input. The above worked for mine. Hope it helps.
