Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

Motorola DCH3200 Cable Box

I just connected my Sony Projection KP-57WS500 to a Motorola DCH3200 from Comcast using a HDMI cable with a DVI connector. The picture is not very clear at all since I am expecting 1080i ouput from my HD channels.

Even though I can see the picture, I am not getting the clarity (1080i) that I was hoping to receive from an expensive tv.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks so much.

    I have a Panasonic TH-50PZ750U and Motorla DCH3200 and while the HD picture is good, it is not great. Actually I am underwhelmed.

Be sure that you took the time to force the output of the DCH3200 to 1080i. They do not seem to come set that way by default! This is true whether you are using either the component or HDMI output.

Power OFF the unit and immediately push the Menu key on the front panel. Using the remote, be sure that the 2nd line of the config is set to 1080i and not something less.

Not getting HD from the set. I have an HD cable box. I bought an HDMI adapter, but still no HD.


The cable box output needs to be set to HD, 1080I, 720P, 1080P. If you call the cable company they should be able to set the box up to ouput a higher resolution. A way to check your hd would be to play a blu ray disk through a ps3 if you have friends with one or have one yourself. If it plays hd just fine you know for sure it's the cable box.

Sony kp 51ws510 upgrade to HD - how to do this


There are inputs on the back of the set. If your tv is Sony 51ws510 then it is capable of HD, but you have to have component or DVI cables to connect the tv to the HD device (HD cable box or DVD player).
<br>

<br>
On your set the component inputs on the back of the tv are video5 and video6 in the middle located in a vertical line (red, green, blue rca video connections with red and white rca audio connections).
<br>

<br>
You also have a DVI input toward at the top of the input panel (white connector with red and white rca audio connectors).

If i get a blue ray player and a cable that has hdmi on one end and dvi on the other and connect to tv dvi will i get best possible pic


No, and do you know if such a cable exists?
The best picture is HDMI to HDMI, then the next step down is component - the three for video and two for audio.

No Signal from cable setting.


check settings on your source...make sure you are not plugging into a DVI/HDMI port on your TV unless you are in fact converting from DVI to HDMI (there a connector to buy) if thats not it replace the cable with a different one. There are several varities of HDMI cable and the signal is faster as you increase in price normally. I have Monster cables that work Perfectly....I would also check TV settings on the port you are plugging into and try a different one to see if the result is the same. If the result is the same you may have a bad source. Always rule out the cable too.

Sony KF50we60 hdmi-dvi sound cuts when plugging into a ht-sf2300


DVI = HDMI without the audio connectors. So basically you need to connect your audio in some different way, PS3s allow you to keep your video signal as HDMI and change the Audio signal to component, so that is one way or doing it, not sure if the blue ray players allow you to do this though.
