Re: can i upgrade to hd on this tv

The tv *is* HD, and capable of 1080i resolution on the component inputs. If you want to watch local broadcast stations in HD though, you will need a separate component from your cable or satellite company, OR you can buy used digital tuners from ebay for quite cheap. You can also watch HD DVDs and Blu-Rays using the component inputs.

Re: can i upgrade to hd on this tv

I am not finding anything on the net about being able to upgrade it but the HD in the model # stands for high def but the tv is old enough that it may not go up as high as 1080 most likely just 480i or p which can be achieved with an s-video or might be 720 with the R/B/G connector or a DVI connector, you can look for converting cables on ebay

Check your manual, I have the same set and you need a
WD 5000 HD upgrade panel, I believe.
This TV is HD upgradeable, it is NOT HD ready, like you have
been told by other responder......

Connecting TV to cable service for HDTV

normally you need a converter box for hd because normal stations are broadcasted in hd.....its not common enough for them to do it...and you probably have to buy a package with your cable company for the hd channels. another your tv hd ready?

I have a proscan ps57660 rear projection tv, and the picture tube keeps jumping. its like the colors won't line up. every so often it will hold, but that is only when there is a full moon and martians...

TV repair guy is right. There are three separate tubes inside your tv (red, blue and green) that are set up to project perfectly on top of each other so that their pictures line up exactly. These tv's have shorter lives do to the fact that they are using the same technology as a conventional tv but they have seriously cranked the power up on these things. They run hotter and harder than any other tv out there. I recomend thinking fondly of the happy days that you had with this tv, then giving it a proper burial and upgrading to HD.

How do I get HD broadcasts on a Phillips 60PP9352 TV that's 'HD ready'?


Im guessing your in the UK.
Asking about HD as you havent stated what country you are in.

Ok You will need the following to be able to watch HD pictures on your tv set.
Either Sky HD which involves having a dish fitted. Or Virgin cable system which is not available all over the country.
If you go to either of these systems you will need to pay a subscription to view the HD channels.
