Question about Philips 55PW9363 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

3 Answers

HDTV-AT&T UVERSE I had UVERSE installed yesterday and my picture is better than with charter but I still dont think it's HD quality. I'm using Red, Green, Blue cable. But when I go to select 1080 or 780 the picture becomes scrambled. I tried to switch to input 4 which is the HD input and then I get no picture, however in input 1 (CVI) I get standard drf picture.

First of all, is your blue "HD" light lit up on the front of your Uverse box?

If yes, then you're in HD

If No, you need to check your connections from Box to TV
1.Those Red-Blue-Green cables are for video only, they don't carry sound and shouldn't be connected to audio outs. Audio needs a seperate cable. Make sure your Red isn't on the audio out which is also red. Make sure your blue and green aren't switched with each other either. Check that at both ends.
2. Try an HDMI cable. It will carry audio and video together and it's one cord instead of 5.
3. What brand/model of TV is it? Is it an older projection TV? The HD tuner might be shot. The individual color tubes commonly fail after a few years.
4. Are you selecting 720p or 1080i from your TV's menu or from the Uverse menu? You'll need to set it through the Uverse box, not the TV.
5.Follow -Menu -Settings -Aspect Ratio to change to 720 or 1080. This should start an autotest which will scramble your picture for about 5 seconds, then bring you back to a menu asking you to keep settings or revert back settings. If you never see that question pop up, then your TV isn't supporting the HD, and you settings will be rolled back automatically. If the question does pop up and you can read it, select "keep settings" and press OK. Your blue HD light should come on the front of the box now.

I had the same problem. Using the standard definition (cvi) input, navigate to options->screen resolution in u-verse and get to the point where all you need to do is click "ok" to switch to HD resolution. Change the component cables to the HD input and then press ok on the remote to switch u-verse to HD resolution. I can't explain it, but it worked for me.

Poor picture and colour quality on hd through hd box red is pink fuzzy hd picture


You need to check the resolution of your TV thru your input setting, try to check which will give better picture quality between 1080 or 720 settings. Also secure that your input setting as either HDMI 1 or 2 or 3, you can use the original remote and change setting by pressing input in cycle.

Use the component connection not the HDMI. Some of the ATT boxes have issues with the HDMI ports. Uverse is only broadcast in 1080i not p so you will not lose any video quality.

New flat screen hdtv has a fuzzy picture


Yes you will get a better picture quality out of a cable box if you get an HD cable box.
The reason you are getting the diminished picture is due to the signal you are feeding the TV is an analog signal. The newer HD TV's are made for digital TV and this older technology shows all its flaws on this type of TV.

When you get the new box understand that the same channels you are getting plugged directly into the tv are still going to have some grainy look to them but the good thing is that a lot of them are starting to be rebroadcast on HD channels and that is where your new toy will truly shine.

Enjoy your new TV...

Good Luck...

BRAND NEW 42in. vizio 1080 LCD HD 120HZ picture not clear


the tv models in store are usually have samples from blueray dvds. standard dvd players will look fuzzy because it only submits standard dvd picture quality. you can try an upvert dvd player. tho i cant promise picture quality. i have an xbox 360 that upverts the quality. if you get a bluray player i recommend hdmi wires. if you get upvert dvd player and it has an hd outlet red, blue, green wires it might work. i havent tried one myself. if you dont want to spend money on bluray dvds. i recommend an xbox console. it upverts dvds through hdmi or hd red, blue, green wires

Picture quality on hdtv


Well it might be working just fine. Personal preference of HD plays a great role in this. Try asking other people if they think it looks HD worthy. If the cords work just fine and are plugged in into the correct A/V jacks, then it could just be your personal preference on what HD is.

I have a samsung sp42q2hl, which on the front of the tv say's it is a hdtv ready, and yet i cannot watch high defenition images or movies, also there is no hdmi inlet at the back so i'm not sure how you...


Hi.
Use component to connect this will give yu HD picture,
On the back of the set you will see A group of 5 phono sockets Blue, Green, Red, These carry picture,

Then Red, White, these carry stereo sound.
Component video 0831d.gif
Component-video cable b.gif
Component video improves the picture quality even more by not only separating the color from the black-and-white portions of the picture but by further splitting the color information into two color-difference signals. When the picture signal is split up in this way, you get an unfiltered, uninterrupted image, with better resolution and greatly improved color saturation. And this is why component video is the predominant method of hookup from HDTV set-top decoders to HDTVs.

So this is how your set can produce HD picture from Hd source.
