Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-V32XBR1 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

LCD TV and Older Movies / Programmes

My 32" Panasonic LCD TV has a very good picture on most TV programmes (e.g. Sports, news, documentaries, soaps etc.)
But, when older programmes and movies are screened, the picture is often distorted - this is most notable when there are facial close ups - it can be quite annoying.
Any explanations / advice would be appreciated

If it's not on Youtube or hasn't been repeated recently on TV, then you could try the BBC Archive. They might be able to help

Bear in mind that a lot of programme material predates video on the web by many years. So it could be quite a long time before these older programmes become available, if ever.

What is the Hz for the Panasonic 42" TH-42A400Z ?

This tv was intended to be used in New Zealand. It is rated 50/60 Hertz. Just google the user manual and you can see that the retailer told you a fib.

Poor quality sound - low volume on Netflix. Everything fine on regular TV programmes.

You have to go to the sound mixer on your PC and increase the volume on Internet Explorer, Microsoft Silverlight also.
To find the mixer try clicking on the speaker on the taskbar.

Auto set up finds only some of available programmes. Only ITV channel found is ITV 4. cHANNELS 4 AND 5 not found. Very good reception on programmes it has found. Full range of programmes viewable...

It maybe that the TV needs to be completely reset. in the menu somewhere should be a setting to "restore factory settings" or "reset to default" something like that...

Try this and post the results...

After retuning no signal for any of BBC

If your aerial is slightly out of line with the transmitter it will skip some the first time around. I had the same problem and just retuned and they returned as normal.

Some stations do not come in full screen?

Not all programmes are broadcasted in a full screen format, they may show the programme with black bars on the top & bottom or left & right sides of the screen. If you have the TV in the Auto setting for the Aspect Ratio then the picture will be displayed in that size of format relative to the broadcast. If you want to fill the screen you can try a different Aspect Ratio to one that fills the screen to a wider image if available.
