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?

Re: Directv Samsung problem
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.

Reset the Directv box,by unplug it,replug it and hour later to let the last software to update.Replaced the HDMI cable,goto ur tv menu,goto sound functions,go down to reset it back to the factory setting.After this the the sound functions should be stable,and work.Not,than ur Tuner signal board have some kind of intermittion short in the board.Than must replaced the Tuner board to solved this problems.
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...
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.
Your right connect the HDMI output from the directv receiver to an HDMI input on your tv. Change the tv input to the HDMI input and it should work. If your tv does not have HDMI input then it should have component input indentified as red blue green connectors on the back of tv. This is for video only. Connect the red and white for audio using the yellow/red/white cable that was included with receiver. The red blue green cable is also included with receiver as well as the HDMI cable. Did this installer educate you on how to use your directv equipment. If you are paying for HD access but your receiver is not connected the an HD input on your tv then you are not getting what you are paying for. This should of been resolved during the installation. The installer either is incompentant or just did not care. Call directv and demand them to make their receiver work with your tv if this means a field supervisor tech being sent out to correct this.
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...
ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")
If you swapped directv receivers and the problem followed to a different tv then there is something wrong with the directv receiver. Need to run satellite setup again on this receiver to fix. repeat satellite setup is accessible through the setup submenu by pressing menu from the directv remote. look under satellite submenu once in setup
That is because you didn't have the audio input connection right. 1. HDMI cable going from the Samsung tx72 output to Your Samsung TV HDMI input 2. 2. Non HD directv box Left and right audio output should be connected directly to the Samsung DVD receiver under Satellite input.Select"Satellite"for the sound from your Samsung tx72.You are good to go!
