Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

2 Answers

Purple and Green hum bars?

I have a 32" HDTV Westinghouse along with a Yamaha Natural Sound AV Receiver HTR-6030 hooked up for 5.1 surround sound (cable plugged into the HDDVR comcast box and component cord connected to the receiver back into the tv). I also have my Xbox 260 and Wii hooked through the receiver.

The problem that I am having is that the TV appears to have bars that are horizontal (very feint green and purple that can be seen mostly in darks) constantly going up the screen. It happens when I watch TV, play my 360 and my Wii.. weird thing is it really doesnt appear on white or light colors. I had the TV repair guy come out and he say that it is not the TV, but the cable cord that is getting hot.

Any ideas or experiences that you guys have had with this?

You could have a drain on your AC (120) causing the hum bars in your set . Best thing to try is to reduce what you have plugged into your 120v outlet . One of your unit could have a capacitor going bad in its power supply causing the hum bars . Even if it is not turned on. Try one unit at a time . if you find out it one of your units they make what is called a line conditioner which filters out these hum bars . Good luck

It's a grounding issue, I solved it for myself by grounding the cable splitter I was using.

TV/DVD surround sound through receiver


Try running digital audio from the source - cable/sat - to the receiver. The fewer intervening connections and entities, the better. TV's are NOT considered sound sources for high end purposes or we wouldn't have Yamaha HTR-5860's and better speakers, would we?

Humming sound when watching tv,but not when watching dvd's


It wounds like you are getting interference from you tv to the receiver. You can try a few different things here.

1. Connect the tv output into another input on you receiver to see if it isnt the channel on the receiver.

2. Try a different set of cables between the tv and receiver. Faulty cables can give you problems.

3. Connect the cable from you tv to a different device. (another dvd vcr blue ray etc.) This will tell you if its the receivers or the tv.

If you can't use one of the Optical Digital Audio INPUTs on the HTR-6030, why don't you just use the Analog Audio Out on the HDD and an Analog Audio IN on the HTR-6030? It has one actually marked 'DVR', but any one would do.

Yamaha HTR-6030


The indicator is telling you you have a 2-channel input. You may have the Blu-Ray connected wrong. Or the source is only Stereo. I need more details to assess that.

The sound coming from all speakers is normal if you have any surround mode selected, regardless of the characteristics of the source

I imagine if you experiment you might find all speakers playing for any number of 2-channel sources, not just Blu-Ray. Besides actual Pro Logic decoding, the various surround modes can provide some interesting effects on non Dolby Surround material.

I recommend that you try them all on various recordings and you may find one or another of them preferable over vanilla stereo. I find that any given artist or music type, even within a given CD, may sound 'better' with different surround settings.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
