@ 6 years old I'd be willing to bet that it's time to replace the lamp. They lose brightness over time so that could be what the problem is.

I have a 4 year old Mitsubishi WD-57831. Lately, when connected to my cable DVR via a HDMI, the picture flashes on and off and some stations don't come in at all. I changed the cable box 4 times, changed...

I have run into this issue alot. I believe its because of a older version of HDMI 1.1. Quick solution is to hookup the cable box with component cables(yprpb) to utilize the HD picture still and then do some research to see if Mitsubishi has a firmware update on your particular model.

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's

Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Off Air?

The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.

Panasonic Rear Projection TV -dark picture

First off I think you meant Panasonic PT-51G44A which is an AP815 chassis. That unit has an all to common failure of the capacitor at C581 on the D board which is a 33uf/160v cap. Replace it and I think that will solve the problem..
