    To Dobbins 99506: You mentioned in your first comments that there was nothing wrong with my TV though just not strong enough signal. In yours second comment you mentioned that my TV now has a problem. ie.,. "This is the exact problem with your set". You are confusing and not exact in your comments. Is there a problem with my set or not. First you concluded that I had a low reception, and that I had to buy a more powerful antenna. There is nothing wrong with my antenna. My antenna is a brand new one and which came recommended by a high end electronical store. My technician also does not believe that my TV has a signal problem and he has now taken it to his shop for a closer look and will preform further testing on it.

This would mean that your signal is being lost. Instead of snow like from a analog signal you get digital breakup when you get low reception. You need to reposition your antenna or get a better one with a little more power. Nothing wrong with your tv though just not strong enough signal.

Thanks

PICTURE SEEMS TO BE BLURRED WHEN ITEMS MOVE FAST ON SCREEN, ESPECIALLY PERSONS IN CLOSE UP.


The Sony Bravia KDL-32BX320 generally gets excellent reviews (4.5 stars out of 5) from owners, so I have to wonder what you're watching.

This is an HDTV and should excel when provided an HD signal to display. SD (standard definition) signals often look worse on an HD display than on an SD display. An HD signal is only available via the following ways (reference the image below):9_27_2011_4_28_11_pm.jpg
1) An "over the air" (UHF / VHF) antenna is connected to the cable / antenna input and there is a broadcaster of HD content nearby (only an over the air antenna can input HD signals to this jack - no cable boxes, etc.).

2) An HD Cable TV, DirecTV or Dish Satellite set top converter, Blu Ray Disk Player (or other HD source is connected via HDMI or Component RGB jacks.

3) An HD video played back from a computer hard drive connected to the VGA jack (when the computer is equipped with a modern processor and video card).


You will NOT be able to view HD video if:

1) The source material is a SD (non-HD) source. An over the air antenna will not provide HD signals if the broadcaster does not have HD content to show or is not capable of broadcasting in HD. Digital is not necessarily HD.

2) The source material (other than over the air antenna) is connected via Antenna / Cable jack.

3) The source material is connected via Composite jacks.

The USB jack is generally not an input for motion pictures, but may display stills - depending on the TV's ability to play the format they are stored in (jpeg, gif, bmp etc.).

Hopefully, this will help you solve the problem you're having with the picture. Good luck!

Hi, I live in a flat in London with a shared rooftop aerial (no idea of spec). I have a Sony KDL-46X2000. The built-in freeview tuner doesn't seem to recieve any HD channels. Is the built-in tuner the...


Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

HDTV unable to get HD Channels w/ Antenna


The problem could be your antenna. Many people will buy small indoor tv antennas and wonder why they're not getting the signal that they want or the channels that they expect. Its not your fault. Digital signal is in two formats: UHF AND VHF. Some antennas only receive UHF. But many of the low band channels are VHF, so 1) you need an antenna that will receive those signals and 2) you need to know how and where to install that antenna and 3) you need to know if you need a signal amplifier depending on your coaxial cable length and number of connections. I recommend visiting dennys antenna service (no I don't work there and I have never purchased anything from that website. He just has an excellent informational article with a great deal of "how to" on his pages.). http://www.dennysantennaservice.com/2029710.html This should be of great help to you. Happy viewing =)

Want to change my sharp hd tv from 480i to 1080p


You Can Not Change. The TV Recognize the signal on the INPUT.
If the signal is 480i than the tv shows 480i
If the signal is 1080p than the tv shows 1080p (if supported)
If you try with your areal antenna (for now digital broadcast is maximum 1080i (in USA) The TV itself doesnt "upconvert" lower resolution signals.
