Why my jvc television hd61z456 not showing in high definition

What is the signal source that you are watching on your HD61Z456?
The problem you describe usually happens when you aren't using an HD source or have downgraded the signal by the composite input on your TV. (Composite cables only support 480i SD signals.)

You will only see 720p HD content from HD sources, if you use HD compatible inputs. Some OTA channels are also broadcast as only analog signals (usually the -2 and higher sub-channels). If you have cable or satellite, make sure that you have the HD programming and have tuned to the HD version of the channel.

The HDMI and component inputs both support HD signals.

I hope this helps. If you are watching an HD source and the problem persists, I recommend trying new video cables. Next, check if you are getting interference from your devices by using a cable with a Ferrite core. See for HDMI cables with Ferrite cores. The cores help block interference. If you have very long cable runs, check the behavior with shorter cables between the source and the TV.

What is the best way to hook up my HD Mitsubuishi TV to a satellite receiver to get the best picture quality? I just recently got the HD receiver. Do I receive HD automatically through the receiver. I have...

The best picture would be with the composite connections which is the red, blue and green plugs. when using these plugs you will also have to connect seperate audio cables for the sound. Then select the proper input on the tv.

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?

NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.

Samsung HCL5515W...when using coax input pic convergence is off, red and blue seem off....when I use the component inputs it constantly flickers between the squigly lines and picture with convergence off?...

on component your device may have to be on progressive. old dvd players you could switch back and forth on progressive and normal. the squigly lines sound like you need to make sure its on progressive. hook it up using the yellow video slot on player and tv (any cable will work). go into menu and look for progressive and change it on.

I am trying to connect my Wii and Wii fit.

My wii fit came wireless. You have to wait until the update loads and then it will walk you through it with directions. Don't try and do it before because it won't work, we tried.

Video input from dvd player shows as black screen w/ squigly color lines

have you tried other devices for input...vcr, or other dvd players to see if it is a problem with the player or with the tv? Check the output setting for the dvd player (1080i etc) and ensure you are connecting to the proper inputs for either analog or digital signals (RCA inputs or RGB).
