Question about Maxent MX-42HPM20 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Electronically charged images

I have my 42" monitor hooked up to my DirecTv HD reciever. When I pull the program guide for a few seconds, I can still see parts of the guide's line in the picture. It "shimmers" and takes away from the quality of the picture and is very distracting. I have used the "full white" and "multi-color" in the setup mode, but the problem persists.

    sounds like a problem that i am having. Same shimmering problem and it only seems to appear after having viewed something from my dvr. It appears in the lower left of the screen. However, mine has been advancing and getting worse. The shimmer appears on light colors throughout 1/4 of the screen.

Yamaha receiver picture disappears and reappears when changing volume

I had the same problem with HDMI input to the RX-V373 from a DirecTV receiver. The RX-V373 volume display and menus on the screen are HD only, which forces the monitor to switch modes when viewing SD.

My solution was to turn off 480i and 480p signals from the DirecTV receiver, and also turn off its native output. The DirecTV receiver then upconverts SD signals to HD. Changing RX-V373 volume then doesn't affect monitor video mode.

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!

Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

Are you running the sound directly from the DirecTV box to the Onkyo reciever? or is it routed through the TV first? Personally if you have it routed through the TV you are losing out on true 5.1 surround. To ge that you need to have the DirecTV box connected via optical or digital output (orange connector) to your Onkyo amplifier. If you need further assistance please email me at tvtek(at)

Is this TV HD capable?

This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...

... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...

1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...

Take care,

ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")
