Maxent MX50X3 HDMI input

I have two problems with my Maxent MX 50X3. One is when my Comcast HD Cable box is plugged up using the Component video cables i get, what my cable tech calls, hum bars. I don't know what to do to get rid of this problem. The only thing that worked, for some reason, is using the HDMI input. When using the HDMI the picture was excellent. This brings up problem two. I came home one day and the HDMI input doesn't work at all. I just get a blue screen. I tried plugging my Samsung DVD player up, thinking it may be the cable, but the problem remains. Now I'm stuck using the component video with the hum bar problem. Also my 360 uses component video and has no hum bar problems. Can someone help me please?

Re: Maxent MX50X3 HDMI input

I had the same problem and found that the ground wire outside where the cable companys box is was not even hooked up. It was just hanging there, once I hooked it up it went away. The cable company gave me the run around telling me it wasn't their fault. I now have Direct Tv.

I have a 42 inch maxent but i dont know where to plug my cable cord because i have a comcast box and theres no where in the t.v to plug my cable cord

If your comcast box has video (yellow), audio R (Red), audio L (White) out, just connect RC cables to the input of the TV at video, audio-in RC Jacks. If your comcast box has only RF out, buy one RF to audio-video converter and then connect these to the TV.

I am having problems programing my Maxent MX50X3 TV to our Direct TV system.

Hi, Your Direct TV system runs on channel 3 or 4 on the Maxent HDTV and the decoder box(PVR) works all the channels. So you might not be able to program your HDTV. Good luck.

My antenna has a coax-my 50 in Maxent mx50X3 has no coax hook up. How do I connect these two?

That unit does not have a tuner so it does not have an antenna input. You need to connect a cable box, satellite box, VCR with a digital tuner (or an additional DTV box for converted input), or DVR to one of the HDMI, S-Video, or Component inputs to view TV.
