Question about Samsung LE40R73BD 40 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Hi. Just found this site. I have a Samsung LE32B450C4W TV. I am not technical at all and Virgin Media have installed us a V+ HD box today. However, I have now discovered when I turn the TV off and back on that I have to reselect HDMI from the source list every time. Virgin say it's the TV and not them but I don't know how to fix this? I would be really grateful for any help. Thanks

You should try this way. Unplug the box and replace by DVD player or others with HDMI output and turn/on off to see the TV keeps changing HDMI sources or not. If it is changed, you have to call service to replace the main board. Else, your TV works well.

There are as you know factory presets to choose from in the user menu.. Your eyes will tell you what you like. The only other way to get a killer picture is to have the TV Calibrated by a good ISF Calibrator.

TELEVISON MODEL:SAMSUNG LE32B450C4W my gran just recieved this tv today she also use virgin media digital on tuning in the television i noticed i could not find digital tv and that i had to go through...


In short: No.

Virgin Media is received via an external box and there is no way to simply program the tv so that your gran can just press one number.

There is a complicated way, but it would be even more confusing. Some Virgin boxes have an RF (i.e. regular tv aerial) output in addition to the usual Scart output. The RF output can be tuned into a regular terrestrial channel, but reception quality is poor compared to using the Scart. Your gran will have to remember to ensure the tv is set to terrestrial reception and to use the source button and ext when she wants to go back to Virgin. This also will not work when the tv uses it's own inbuilt digital Freeview receiver so it's both confusing and useless after the digital switchover.

Either leave the TV permanently set to ext and tell your gran to only ever use the Virgin remote to change channels, or be patient with her as she takes time to learn how to select between terrestrial, Freeview and Virgin.

It's less than ideal and when I worked for a tv rental company this kind of complication was a major pain for older customers (and younger non tech savvy ones!)

It may also be worth looking for a simplified universal remote control with clear buttons. There is one which has large buttons but the controller is almost the size of a sheet of A4 paper.

No HDMI on the source list, i have a Virgin Media V+ Box with a HD cable pugged in and when i look at the source list the HDMI Port is not Highlighted, why is this? Please help


One of a few things are happening. If you are connected to the TV via the HDMI port and it doesn't become highlighted then either the main board on the TV is at fault, the HDMI output on the media box is not working (try on another TV if possible) or the HDMI cable itself is bad.

Picture problems


Hi,

The pixelation is probably caused by MPEG2 compression on the DVD and Virgin media video streams, the blur is probably caused becasue you are displaying a standard definition signal on a high definition TV.

However if a high-def source still has these problems then you may have a faulty TV, your best bet is too hook up a high-def source such as a HD/Blu-ray player or PS3/360 games console.

Should a high-def source look ok, then you may have some look changing the display settings on the TV to try and improve picture sharpness and color balance.

Thanks.
