    Hi when I look behind my tv I have the following:



    Component Video Input



    Component 1 Component 2

    480i/480p 480p/1080i

    G G

    B W B W

    R R R R



    I am hooking it up from the Component Video Out (on the receiver) to the Component 2 (on the tv) above because it has the 1080i.



    Let me know if I am doing something wrong.

  • cmm496 May 04, 2010

    I removed the R,Y,W cable from both the TV and the HD Receiver. - Nothing on TV at this point



    I hooked up G (receiver) to G (tv) - under Component 2 480p/1080i (section on back of TV) - flicker started and stopped, no squiggly lines, but picture on TV is HUGE and shaky.



    NEXT



    I hooked up B (receiver) to B (tv) - under Component 2 480p/1080i section (on back of TV) - flicker still gone, no squiggly lines, but picuture on TV is HUGE and shaky - this time in color



    NEXT



    I hooke dup R (receive) to R (tv) - under Component 2 480p/1080i section on back of TV) - flicker still goine, no squiggly lines, but picture on TV is HUGE and shaky and not even on screen.



    I turned the TV to ESPNHD and the I can tell its showing in HD but the flickering and squiggly lines happen on HD channels. Help.

  • cmm496 May 04, 2010

    This time I set the channel to an HD channel and removed all the component cables. I put in the G only cable in both the TV and receiver and the flickering begins.



    I removed the G cable and inserted the the B & R into both the TV and receiver and the TV indicates "no unit connected to jacks".



    Seems like the flickering is from the G cable, any insight to what that could be?

  • cmm496 May 04, 2010

    I bought a Direct TV HD DVR from someone earlier today.



    What's driving you to think its an issue with the receiver box? This will help me explain to tech support when I call them.



    I see the HD picture on the TV, but the flickering begins the moment I add the Green Component cable to both the TV and HR receiver. Even though when I hook up the standard R,Y,W cables and the picture shows perfectly fine, you believe it is the HD capabilities of the receiver? I will ask DirectTv to test the HD capabilities of the receiver.

  • cmm496 May 04, 2010

    Those bastards at Directv are sending a tech out at my expense and will exchange the box out until the tech comes out. Can you believe the appointment is set for NEXT monday? Im so angry. I spent all day working on this tv/receiver issue.



    I really appreciate your expertise, It's been very helpful to me.



    Thanks again- Christina.

You must connect the HD component cables to input: Component 2 (See photo). This input only accepts 480p & 1080i, so be sure the resolution indicator on the front of the Direct TV box is set correctly. If not, press the resolution button located on the front of the box until to indicates either 480p or 1080i. Also, the wires are color coded, be sure to connect the accordingly. There can be some confusion with the red wires, if you have buzzing from the speakers or the colors do not seem correct you should verify the red connection are not mixed up. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Be sure to look carefully as not all component inputs are 1080---look to see first if the input is indicated on the on screen menu as HD and also where the jacks of course are.

If you hook a Hd box to a non Hd input you will get flickering and lines etc.

Let me know please what you find as I am here to help you.

    If each input is marked separate with the 1080 they are both 1080---it is very unusual for the problem to be in the set if the non HD works---try each input one at a time and let me know what happens--you may have a bad box.

    The set is not smart enough to know what is hooked to this input.

    The box you are using for this is one your purchased or was from your provider like direct TV?

    Some of these sets the format will be 4X3 which is large picture in middle of screen.

    To be honest it sounds to me like a issue with the box.

    Component is RED, GREEN, BLUE cables and the green one carries most of the video--understand all information is coming via these to the set from whatever box you are using.

    The only other way to confirm or deny what is wrong is if you had a Blue Ray that is 1080 hook it to the same connection and see what happens.

    If I was you I would get the box exchanged as it is not likely the cables in use or the set.

    DO NOT ASK, EXCHANGE THE BOX is the only way to know and someone on the phone has no way of telling if it is or is not the real problem.

    I am in California and here almost every day at this time until later in the evening.

How do I get the HD on this model? Which cables/hook up should I use? I do not have a cable box or set top box but if these are required, please let me know. Thanks!


Your unit is HDTV ready but is not an HDTV. It is capable of displaying HDTV only through the component inputs. Your tuner is analog NTSC and will not receive HDTV or digital.

You could get an HDTV picture using a Blue Ray DVD and hooking up the component connectors from the DVD to the TV.

The only other way would be to get an HDTV tuner with a component output and hook it up the same way, component out to component in, and hook the tuner input to an off air antenna (receiving HDTV) or cable or satellite with HD signals.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Hooking up from hd receiver to hdtv ready projection tv. what cables do I use? vga or rca component red, blue, green and sync white/black? My hd receiver has output of :hdmi, rca component, s-video ,...


This particular television puts you in a tough bind - you can use Component cables in AV1, but you won't be able to get HD. Or you can use the Component cables in the right-most component slot, but since your HD Receiver probably doesn't have V/H Sync connectors, you may get a rolling picture. Try the component cables in the right-most slot (I'm assuming, perhaps incorrectly, that your actual model # is not really a 50P8341, which has no V/H Sync slot).

This particular television puts you in a tough bind - you can use Component cables in AV-1, but you won't be able to get HD. Or you can use the Component cables in the right-most component slot (AV-4), but since your HD Receiver probably doesn't have V/H Sync connectors, you may get a rolling picture. Try the component cables in the right-most slot - if the picture doesn't roll, you're in business.

Once again, I doubt that your model # is a 60pp9202, since that model doesn't have a VGA or DVI slot. If the picture rolls after trying the above, you will need to purchase a HDMI-to-DVI-D cable and hook it up from the HDMI output of your HD receiver to the DVI slot (that looks like a VGA slot) on the back of your Philips or Magnavox.

HD ready?


If it is HD ready it will have HD component cable hookups. They are the red, blue, and green color coded hook up. You may also have RGB hookups which will look like a usb port. If you have any of these hook ups located on the TV then it is HD ready. If not then you were told false information. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Please recheck component connections in both units and make sure to hook up them according to corresponding colors like blue to blue, red to red and orange to orange.

Picture issues


Greetings caesar975,

Unfortunately if you chose to view the non HD channels in wide screen format, you are going to have the top and bottom of the screen cut off. Eventually this will not be a problem when everything goes to digital. However presently non HD channels are presented in 3:2 ratio where as HD is 16:9, So your choice really is to view them with the lines on either side for now.

I do not have an answer for the white flickering lines.

To get the BEST picture out of your 1080p unit I highly recommend using HDMI cables to hook it up.

I hope some of this helps.

Sincerely,

Dorothy

Screen flicker when watching 1080i


Component video has a max resolution of 720p. in order to use 1080i or p you have to use hdmi or dvi connections. That is why you get the flicker.
