Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

1 Answer

HD compatibility - Not

Purchased this tv 2 1/2 years ago, and just this month got HD cable service, only to find that the set won\'t sync up with the 1080i feed from Comcast. Proton tech support says it's a Comcast problem. Comcast blames the set. I lean toward it's being a Proton problem.
I't connected with the comp cable and will only sync to 480 which is no different from Standard TV (except the picture is smaller.)

Re: HD compatibility - Not

You need to nail down where the problem is by finding another source of 1080i signal and prove if it is the TV or not, then hold Proton's feet to the fire if it is.

How do I change my service from analog to H D?

Most LCD tv's built in the last 4 years are HD compatible. Most cheaper brands tv's are 720 HD and some are full HD 1080 a little more money. Since their is no more analog broadcast as June 2009 all tv's manufactured around 2006 started incorperating the digital tuner (DTV) along with the analog so that the tv would still receive analog broadcast while the digital transistion was ongoing. All tv's with a Cathode Ray Tube (glass picture tube) are not HD compatible. First you will have 1 or 2 ports on the tv ethier on the side panel or rear panel of the set. They a marked HDMI 1 HDMI 2 or HDMI A HDMI B. If you have these ports your set is Hd Compatible. You may also need to upgrade your cable or satelllite equipment and subscribe to a HD package to be able to get HD service. You will need a HDMI cable to connect your cable or satellite receiver to the HDMI port on you tv. Call your local cable or satellite provider for options to upgrade to HD. Most over the air broadcast stations depending on your area transmit some stations in HD free of charge. A good quality outdoor antenna works best to give you stable signal. You may need to change the settings of the tv as some sets default to the 480i this is the standard digital signal.

NO picture

Make sure the video cable supplied with the TV is secured to the correct video

output port on the back of the VCR and the TV. Make any cable you have attached

to the TV is secured to the correct output your Set-Top Box, DVD, etc.

Adjust brightness and contrast.

Check Source settings.

Let me know if this does not help and ill look for anything else. Other than this is something internal and will need to be serviced probably

Lip sync

Vizio HDTV- Lips out of sync

Anyone with a new Vizio E601i-A3 60" or 70" HDTV that is having audio "Lips out of sync problems" with a cable or satellite box.

On Comcast cable boxes (or others), here's what you need to do: FIND MENU for AUDIO or HDMI setup on CABLE BOX or Satellite Box.


1. Turn on TV and have Cable box Turned OFF.


3. Go to AUDIO Setting OR HDMI Setting. (On cable or Sat. BOX)

4. Change setting from Auto to L-PCM. (Turn off cable box to exit)

This should resolve any "out of sync" lips to picture after commercials on HD channels.

*This is a handshaking issue from the cable box to the Vizio E601i-A3

I have a 40 inch Samsung TV which I've had about 3 years (sorry I Don't have the model number handy). I have DirectTV and an HD-DVR. The HD Channels were great up until about a few weeks ago. Now sometimes...

If your menus on the TV and other inputs look good then it is probably a resolution setting on your Directv box that needs to be changed. To get HD it needs to be set at 720p or 1080i. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks....

i had the same problem and the only way i could solve it was to disconnect power from the tv, let it "reset" then it would be ok for a bit. the problem went away entirely when the cable company updated its software for its hd box. might be coincidence....

also, pre-update, the resolution wouldnt automatically set correctly. If I turned on the tv to a hi def station, it would set to 480 and only set to 1080 when i changed to a normal station then back to the hd. then it was fine. again, after the update from the cable company this went away.

Sony BRAVIA KDL46S2010 Sound and Pix not in sync - in HDTV channels only

This is a software issue with both the TV manufacture and the cable box provider. This will only be fixed when the cable company and TV manufacture sit down and work out their problem. Some cable company has taken the first step by updating cable boxes with different software.
