Question about Sony KDS-55A3000 55" HDTV

1 Answer

Bluriness I just purchased this model (believe its the same one, bravia in 1080 p). I hooked up my directv box which is not hd and the picture is very distorted. When you view the guide there is shadowing around all of the letters and it is difficult to even look at. Is this bluriness due to the fact that my direct tv is not in HD? I knew hd improved certain channels but did not think it influenced things like tv guides, etc. Should I contact the seller about this, or am I bound to see fuziness when running non hd devices on an hdtv? Thanks so much!

ILO 42 plasma P42BSMT-32 am upgrading satellite service to HD is this tv HD compatiable no HTMI port


You can get 720p or 1080i " fake 1080 " through the RGB component inputs, But you will not get 1080p true 1080 res. But, this TV is only 720p anyway. But,it will still make a big difference in the pict. up-grading. And having the new HD box when you get new your new service now,will save you $100 from needing to buy a HD box later if you have a new TV with the HDMI. As DirecTV will give you the HD boxes free with new service. But,charge later if you have up-grade from a standard box. No sure how Dish network does tho. But, not have had too many customers happy with Dish. DirecTV is the way to go. And the signal during the rain is so much more problem free.

Samsung LCD TV LN40A550P3F will not support 1080 format when hooked up to HDMI via Directv receiver.


Hi, is the directv box giving out 1080? There is an option on the box to select between 480, 720, 1080.
Also the tv has the same option.

What is the optimal cable type to connect the Samsung UN55B8500 to a DirecTV HD tuner? Are there specific TV settings to use for this cable type


The best cable hook up to use is the just the one HDMI cable. Just hook it up from box to TV and change the input selection on your TV to HDMI. Then on the Directv Box, change the resolution to 1080 for the best image.

How to adjust from 480p to higher resolution up to 1080


several things use hdmi cabling, also change resolution (can sometimes be changed on front of direct tv receiver) or may have to go through menu to change to the different resolutions. also turn the native mode OFF! having the native mode on for directv will give sometimes give you odd pictures. also whatever resolution you choose through directv menu's make sure your tv is also set to the same resolution

Is this TV HD capable?


This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...

... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...

1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...

Take care,
Rob

ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")

How to get 1080 resolution from my plasmaI have the 6842 pe EDTV


DVDs are 480p
HD-DVD or Blu-Ray DVD is 720p or 1080i or 1080p

you cannot increase resolution, if you want to play a 480p/i video on a 1080p/i or 720p screen, you are merely stretching the picture.

If there is any kind of box that tells you it can convert 480i/p to 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) it is simply stretching the picture.

you can convert 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) to 480i/p as you are taking out information from the video to make it smaller.
