Question about Flat Panel Televisions

Hitachi 19WDVB I received a 19" LCD (Digital) Hitachi for Xmas but I can't tune in any stations. I have always had problems recieving good quality reception from my out-door areial and have to use an areial "booster". I thought with a digital TV I may be able to receive a better picture on my TV, but at the minute the TV can't pick up any picture. Have you any idea how I can improve this situation? Thanking you in advance

Re: Hitachi 19WDVB

Had the same problem. Digging through the manual I came across a paragraph (at the top of page 24 - DTV Features) saying "if you have selected DTV then it will only display the DTV menu. (I didn't actually select DTV - we can't even get DTV in our area, but the ASP programduring startup appears to have set it!
You have to press the Volume +/- buttons on the remote, then the Input button and it will bring up the input menu. There you can select a different input. Once I did this, I found it had both my TV channels tuned and my satellite channel!
Now my problem is I can't control on/off or volume with the Sky controller - which is why I'm trawling the forums!!

Is this TV digital

This is not a digital TV. This TV has only an NTSC (analog) tuner. A converter will be needed to tune digital broadcast TV stations, your CATV or satellite company supplies a converter to allow this set to display programs.

The display is limited to "480P" resolution, called "Enhanced Definition", which is a step up from the traditional NTSC standard of "480i" resolution or "Standard Definition". ("P is "progressive scan" and "i" is "interlaced scan"). Progressive scan provides a better picture quality when compared to interlaced scan images. High Definition or "HD" is a signal that contains data that allows display of images with 720P, 1080i and 1080P resolutions (the larger numbers indicate more information, or higher picture quality). Your TV will receive all signals, SD, ED and HD, but will down convert to ED. Signals can be brought into the set via 2 composite-video connections, 1 each component- and S-video, an RF antenna/cable-box/VCR input, and a 15-pin D-Sub analog RGB input. More info can be found here.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Hi, I live in a flat in London with a shared rooftop aerial (no idea of spec). I have a Sony KDL-46X2000. The built-in freeview tuner doesn't seem to recieve any HD channels. Is the built-in tuner the...

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

Best way to hook up ps3 to hitachi 50v500 for best quality picture and audio

The HDMI output on the PS3 to the DVI input on the 50V is the best video option. Be sure to set the PS3 to the matching output. If you need instructions for this, go to:

The best audio option I have used is is the digital optical out on the PS3 to a surround sound reciever that has an optical input. We have a Denon reciever. The sound is excellent for a game, very good for movies, and music sounds good too. Unless you are an audiophile, this should give you impressive results.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I bought an AVOL LCD TV multi system at the PX in Germany. I receive over the air AFN broadcast (one station), and had no problem with my Hitachi CRT TV. I cannot get this TV to tune in the station.

Hi filddol,

could you receive the German TV station, if yes you have to select in the setup menu the area to US and try again to search the AFN.

or use the following link for AVoL service within Germany

My philips lcd digital tv says I am recieveing analog signals from a digital direct tv sat. How do I get my tv to change to accept digital signals?

First verify that the direct TV satellite box is set to receive and display digital stations. If you old set on the sat was analog, the box may not have been reset. You may have to contact you satellite provider. Next you will have to go to the TV menu and auto program/scan in the stations. This should pick up all the stations.

Can not get hd channels on my new tv..

First of all, digital/HD signals are broadcast at UHF frequencies. You need to know if you have an UHF antenna and, if you do, that it is pointed to the TV stations broadcasting HD.

Second, since most TV's have a setup mode that automatically searches for channels that are able to be received, go to that "Setup" menu on your TV and start the auto search. It will list both analog and digital stations. Note that the analog channel may be, for instance, Channel 39 but the digital channel will be Channel 39-1. Tune to the "dash 1" channel.
