Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
Each time I try to change one of my local channels, the word "Component1" will show up in the upper right hand corner of the tv, this causes a delay in the channel starting. I have called Direct TV and the number they gave me has indicated that no "live agents" were available. What can I do to correct this problem?
Your Direct TV box is switching between a Standard Definition channel and a High Definition channel. When this happens, the TV has to switch the display format. As the format is changing, you will briefly loss picture, the TV detects the new format, and then displays it. What you are seeing is the normal operation of the TV. It the TV did not blank the picture, you would see a broken chopped up picture during the transition. If you are familiar with the setup menu of the Direct TV box, you could change the video format settings so than it locks to the High Definition format. If you are not familiar with the Setup menu, you should contact Direct TV and ask then to walk you though this procedure. Specifically, ask them to "Help me set my Direct TV box so that it always displays in 1080i format." You pay for them for the service, they should be able to provide you with some phone support at no charge. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.
