    Having a similiar problem. My HP T5054 has been working on hdmi cable provided by verizon with their stb. It worked last night. When it was powered up this morning along with the stb the message "not supported mode" . Thats all it says in a pretty little box. The STB still outputs rs170 and havent tested component outputs yet. Anyone know how to enter setup on the Motorola STB DVR?

If you are using hdmi out from your cable box It must be turned on in the system menu. The cable box can work on a regular tv, eg. component, cable, or composite video but still not send a signal out to HDMI unless switched on in the box's menu. I see this quite often and also in some cases you have to switch the box to send digital audio out through the HDMI cable. Hope this helps.

We have a Samsung Smart TV. We cannot get the signal and have installed a Digital Satellite Receiver. We have a Magnavox VCR and a sony DVD Player. We owuld like to attache the same to our TV and watch...


Hi there,

Depending on your Satellite receiver's output type (i.e. HDMI or Component - Red, Green, Blue) you should connect to your tv's appropriate external inputs. Example: if you choose to connect the receiver via HDMI, then you use the SOURCE button on your tv and select the correct HDMI input you have connected your device to. If connected by Component (Red, Green, Blue) then use the SOURCE button to select the correct Component input, and so on.

Note: HDMI is the best connection type - you won't be able to access your receiver from the tv's built in tuner.

As above explanation, your VCR and DVD devices should be connected to your tv in the same manner - unless it is a combo unit (VCR & DVD in one), in which case this device can be tuned into your chosen tv channel (via the tv's tuner).

Note: if you have one of the latest SMART tv's, it should already have a built-in "Hi Definition" tuner which will allow you to watch free digital tv broadcast (DVB).

Hope this helps...

I experience some temporary image retension with my samsung hp-t5054. What is the best way to resolve this. What are the best settings for my TV?


HI.

This is a common problem with this Samsung TV.

Is this a new TV? If so, remember that it has a break-in period of about 100 hours or so. Not everyone believes in this, but in my experience it does have an effect.

Try reducing your contrast ratio to 35 (default is 50). You shouldn't see too much of a difference and it may solve your problem. And if it's a new TV, you could try setting it back to 50 again after the so-called 'break-in period'. Hope this helps.

Good luck,

-LL

Hi I deal with Samsung everyday. Can you not go back to the store where you bought it. their customer service team should be able to push a bit more clarification from Samsung. Also a lot of stores will have a policy where if the unit is away for repair for more than x amount of days/weeks the customer is entitled to a new prduct. Worth a shot!
