Dx-L321-10A: M-B315AA on direct tv. Can't get HD. Says restricted. Tried comp. No good, haven't used HDMI. Do I need Digital? Thanks for your time.

These are directly from your users manual:

  • Built-in HDTV tuner: Add HD-capable antenna to receive over-the-air high-definition broadcasts, where available. Optional set-top box required for high-definition cable or satellite programming

  • 2 HDMI inputs: Provide an uncompressed all-digital audio/video link for the highest quality connection and support copy-protected HD broadcast content.
  • you need to do one of 2 things to get HDTV on your device. Either attach an HD- capable antenna or attach an HDMI cable from your satellite tv providers box. Good luck.

How can I get high definition on the tv? I have it set to receive the signal from my cable tv company but it transmits only a regular signal.

Check these things to solve this problem:

Do you have an High Definition TV? If you bough it recently, then you probably do. If you are unsure, look on the back of the TV for the model numbe and search on Google to read find information about he model of TV you have. If you don't have an HD TV, you will need to upgrade if you want High Definition.

Is the TV connected to the cable box with an HDMI or Composite cable?
You can order a cheap HDMI cable at
If you are using old style AV cables (red, yellow, white) then you will not get an HD signal from the cable box.

Check the TV settings to make sure it is set to display in HD. Look in the manual for help here. It is probably in the Input Settings.

You will need to call your cable company and make sure you are getting HD service. If you are not the you will only get Standard Definition. You may have to pay more or upgrade your cable box.

The picture on my new 32" does fill the screen. What should I do to correct this problem?

I assume you have pressed the zoom button on the remote control that came with the tv. If you have a cable box or satellite tv box press the # button or hd zoom button or aspect button or format button on that remote control. If you are connecting a high definition cable box or satellite tv box to this television make sure that the high definition cables are connected to the right high definition inputs on the television and that the television is switched over to the right corresponding input. If all else fails and this is just happening on one hd channel it is the hd channel.

Looking for hd channel

To get an hd picture you have to use a digital input and this cannot be done by simply turning it to a channel. You need to hook up your HD receiver (box) to your tv using either an HDMI or a Component which will be a cable that looks similar to an rca but there are three of them and the colors are bed blue and green. If there is a red, blue and green on the back of the cable box and the tv hook them together with a component cable and then find the input on your tv that correlates to the compnent connections and then even after all of this you need to be tuned into a channel that is offered in high definition and if you have cable like I do the high definition channel will be a seperate channel from the regular one. Comcast in my area puts the HD's from channels 400-500. For example my espn HD is channel 403 but just regular espn non HD is on channel 27 in my area.

Do we need to buy an antenna to get this TV ready for Digital TV?

LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.

What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.

If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)

By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna.
HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface
STB = Set Top Box
High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment)
LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)

If you have anymore questions, ask away.

How to get a high definition Picture??

Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem
