I Have a RCA Rear Projection SRS Focus Is it High Def ? Or Would it make a differance if i got a HD receiver From Directv ?

Look for the HD logo on the front of the set--if there and a early one it is HD READY which means it needs a box with HD connected to its rear HD input.

Won't work in 480i or 1080i mode

Have you tried a different input like a DVD to ensure the issue is with the TV? If the issue is indeed the TV then replacement of the video card (Or digital board) is warranted. If there is a separate board with all of the video inputs on it that would be the video board. If the main board in the unit has the video connectors on it, that is the digital board.

Just connected our directv hd receiver to the tv via component cables, because we just bought a blue ray player and the only output for that is HDMI and since there is only 1 DVI input we had to change the...

You may be able the settings of your directTV box to stop frustrating you. If you help me identify the model you are using, I can research the proper menu choices you will need to choose to select the correct features. There are many different directTV set-top boxes available.

My own home theater setup did the same thing, and my solution was to use component cables from the PVR instead of HDMI cables. It is too bad your blu-ray doesn't allow for this configuration.

My work-around until I realized that using different interconnects fixed the problem, was to turn the TV off and then on again whenever switching from HD to non-HD sources. This fixed my problem, maybe it will fix yours.

I hope that helps.

I have a Samsung HLP5063wx xaa and I am getting a HDMI not supported when I hook up my HD-DVR, any help on how to resolve this, PLEASE!!!

I fixed it, if anyone is having this problem, you will have to tell your Directv box to only accept 720p resolution, I only have one line hooked up to my Hd-DVR right now and I had to tell the Directv box that it was on a Single tuner not Dual, I re-booted the directv box and everything works. I hope this helps anyone w/ an older model DLP, It took me hours on the internet to find the answers I needed.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525, and when the Directv installer came out, he said that he could not connect the box to my tv because he didn't know how to get my tv in HDMI mode. From what I am reading, it...

Your right connect the HDMI output from the directv receiver to an HDMI input on your tv. Change the tv input to the HDMI input and it should work. If your tv does not have HDMI input then it should have component input indentified as red blue green connectors on the back of tv. This is for video only. Connect the red and white for audio using the yellow/red/white cable that was included with receiver. The red blue green cable is also included with receiver as well as the HDMI cable. Did this installer educate you on how to use your directv equipment. If you are paying for HD access but your receiver is not connected the an HD input on your tv then you are not getting what you are paying for. This should of been resolved during the installation. The installer either is incompentant or just did not care. Call directv and demand them to make their receiver work with your tv if this means a field supervisor tech being sent out to correct this.

HDMI interface issues

If you swapped directv receivers and the problem followed to a different tv then there is something wrong with the directv receiver. Need to run satellite setup again on this receiver to fix. repeat satellite setup is accessible through the setup submenu by pressing menu from the directv remote. look under satellite submenu once in setup

Off Air?

The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.

Flashing red lines on Samsung hcl4715w rear projection

The convergence board wont correct the problem. You need to replace the two Convergence ICs on the sub board STK392-040 and you will be back to normal. See my response above. That site will help you get it back to normal.

See lines in HD cable or DVD source images, also maybe a problem w/ color, see extra blue haze

It sounds like convergence problem to me. There are two ways to correct these concerns; Samsung does sell boards, so if you are handy you can replace the boards yourself. BUT I recommend calling a factory authorized service company. It isn't costly, the cost will run around $400 -$550.

Most satellite boxes have a zoom,stretch mode that might be incorrectly set. i would check that first before dooming an issue with the TV.
