Directv Samsung problem

I had Directv install HD satellite and H21-200 processor connected by 6 foot HDMI cable to my Samsung LNT3242H TV. HD works great but digital channels are very fuzzy. We tried two different processors but no improvement. Next ran a different new cable from the dish directly to the processor but no change. Technician set up for AV1 to get slight improvement but picture quality on digital channels still poor. Tried another Dell TV and no change. The tech wants to try another TV from their inventory to see if that fixes the problem--his 3rd trip back to try to fix the problem. Anyone got any idea what the problem with non-HD channels is?

I also have directv.At this point,it is a video signal issue on their end.The up conversion is ok at best.Depending on the original video that is probably as good as it gets.The other problem is the wow factor from hd.It is hard not to be critical of the non-hd channels.

I have directv hd service, I recently bought a surround system, can you help me with the connection? My sat. reciever has an hdmi out as do my surround receiver and my tv


It is always helpful if you give model and make of the equipment involved. We can be more specific and accurate that way.
It si a very straight forward connection and you need two HDMI cables.
1) Connect the Satellite Box's HDMI out to the Receivers HDMI In ( any one of the sockets labeled TV/SAT or Video AUX etc ).
2) Connect the Receiver's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI In.
Every thing will work fine except if you switch off the power of some receivers the TV will stop getting HDMI signals ( ie no sound or video if Receiver is Off )

The other way of connecting is to connect the SAT BOX's HDMI cable directly to the TV's HDMI In and if your SAT BOX has a digital Audio out ( Optical or Coaxial ) connect that to the Receivers Digital In. This way you will need only one HDMI cable and one Optic fiber or Coaxial cable. And the advantage is even if the Receiver is Off you can watch video and hear its sound through the TV.

How do i connect my directv box to my soyo tv #DYLT032D


  • If your DirecTV box supports HDTV then connect it using either an HDMI cable from the box to the TV (located on the back, labeled HDMI 1,2,3,etc.).
  • If the box is not an HDTV box then connect it with a RGB (red, green, blue) composite cable from the box to the TV.
  • If the RGB output is not on the ack of the box then connect using a standard coaxial cable.

[NOTE] In order for the quality of the picture to be HD, use the RGB for digital (Better), or the HDMI for High-def (Best)

Samsung 650 lcd 40" tv picture blacks out for a few seconds.


Dude, better check your cable and also your TV's power management settings. This might also happen due a issue with the HDMI output of the satellite box.

I have a Samsung 32" series 3 tv and a basic satellite box (Directv) without an HDMI outlet. what is the best way to install?


The only option you have with a standard DirecTV box is using composite or s-video connection to your TV. These are much better options than using the RF tuner input and will give you stereo audio. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks...

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.

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.


If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

TV only will play HD Channels


This must be the setup for your TV box. Contact the support for your TV box.

Normaly, the TV should auto select the proper operation mode.
