Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I installed an H21 HD receiver for a client last week (although, they are only paying for standard def. programming). The receiver works fine for approx. one hour, then video freezes and goes away. A system reset from the front of the receiver, or a hard reset will bring the system back. Twenty minutes to an hour later, the video again freezes and goes away. I still have directv channel info. at the top, but appears to lose satellite strength, and it appears that the audio changes as well. When the video is working, satellite signal strength is really good and there are no obstructions.

Picture problem on panasonic Vierra plasma tv


It looks like you are saying standard definition pictures do not cover the screen like HD pictures do. Standard def is formatted 4:3 and high def is 16:9. They are not the same so your high def screen is made to display the not as tall but wider high def picture. In order to fill the screen with the taller and not as wide 4:3 aspect ratio std def picture you must tell the TV to stretch the picture or otherwise fill the screen.The TV will have controls you can exercise for this purpose and you can set it up to always show std def in a particular manner. The alternative, if you want the standard Def picture to look true to form, is to view standard def in Letter Box form. It's appearance will then include black panels on the sides of the picture. So the problem is not with the TV but in accepting older format pictures playing on newer format displays (TVs.)

Xperia X8 - microphone not working while using skype


had this problem and resolved by downgrading my skype version.
skypev103b_e7yashh9.apk

Search web for the above from x8, download, get a file finder program from market and install the file from there.

With that said, although this has worked the few weeks I have owned this device, the last two days I am having trouble hearing the called party in the earpiece, but it works on speaker - anybody else have this behavior? At the same time, when receiving skype calls everything is fine.

Although I paid a 20.00 donation through paypall and it was delivered I cannot receive the program I paid for. Although it downloads it is not on my computer. Could you help. The program was CCleaner....


I downloaded and installed this program from that link and it is working perfectly. It is free and you don't need to pay for that program, you can make donation but it is free program. If you downloaded program and you cant find it on your computer just search your computer for dccsetup.exe

I HAVE A HI DEF BOX AND IT IS CONNECTED TO MY TV VIA A HDMI CABLE BUT PICTURE IS NOT HI DEF. DO I NEED TO ACTIVATE SOMETHING ON THE TV ITSELF?


HD signals are automatically sent from the receiver to the TV and are displayed as such unless there is a setting on the HD box in the on screen display to drop the signal to standard definition.

Its also imperative that you have HD programming and that that you are tuned to an HD channel. Since the box itself is backwards compatable it can display Standard Definition signals.

What is the model # of the box. Perhaps I can guide you to the settings.

Connecting my Humax Series 2 Tivo to a Motorola HD DCH3416 Cable Box


Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.

You can still hook the two up together, though.

What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this:
Split the cable coming out of the cable box.
Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo.
Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV
Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.

This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.

Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.

I have the One for all Cinema 7 remote control. I need the code for the Directv HD Receiver Model H21-100


I gave up on the Cinema 7 remote control. I got it to turn the HD Receiver on and off by programing the L buttons but could not change channels. Although the Sony remote is very large, I programed it to operate the Receiver.

Thank you
