I have a BENQ PE8700 also. Charter Cable just replaced my Hi Def Cable Box and now I only get the non hi-def channels. I get the sound on the Hi-Def channels only. My projector is hooked up with the DVI Cable. Did you ever find out why you were not getting HI DEF?

Think about where you TV audio originates. Unless you have an antenna on your TV, everything IT hears comes from an external audio device like a cable/sat box which almost certainly has a digital audio output and/or HDMI.

I would recommend you carefully utilize your limited connections this way:

Using Page 10 as a guide.

IF your TV has 2 HDMI's or one HDMI AND one Component input:

Cable box (Component Out and Analog Stereo RCA) or HDMI Out to corresponding TV In's if available.

Cable Box coaxial audio to the HTS (3). This way the best broadcast TV multichannel audio goes to the best electronics and speakers.

HTS HDMI Out (9) to TV Component In (if available), otherwise use Component Out (7). I recommend saving the highest quality video delivery path for your native BD because broadcast Hi-Def video is always bandwidth compromised while BD is the best video available today.

Composite Video Out (6) to Composite Video In on TV for HTS management functions.

You still have both Aux In (4) pairs).

Our pitchure is not bright or clear as was in store


This actually common I worked in electronics for 13 years. Did they tell you that it has to be hooked up to an High Definition source. A digital cable or Sattelite reciever does not mean its HD also using Coaxle cableor composite(yellow,red,white) will not produce a good picture. You need HDMI or Component(RED,Blue,Green for video and red white for audio) to get a high def pic. Also not all station are broadcast in high def. One other thing is even if you have a High Def reciever you need to go into the menu of the reciever where it says display and and make sure its set for 1080i or maybe 1080p(most dont have this option yet) If you are using a normal DVD player and use the yellow red and white once again picture will be poor. Need to use Component or hdmi and again with component you need to set DVD to either 480p and if its upconvert to 1080p

We are in Ghana we need frequency and we update to get more channel


Your flat panel TV is probably factory set to receive ATSC signals (Hi-def DIGITAL TV), whereas
Ghana may not have converted from analog TV (NTSC) yet.

Digital TV's cannot receive analog signals. I'm just guessing about whether or not Ghana supports
Hi-Def broadcasts - you'll have to check with (any) TV channel in Ghana. The Analog-to-digital
conversion is an expensive one at the broadcast end, and may not have happened yet in Ghana.

The US conversion took place by FCC mandate June 12, 2009.
There are available $65 (USD) digital-to-analog converters, but what you may need is an
analog-to-digital converter, which doesn't exist. Your Flat-panel TV amy have to wait until Ghana
begins broadcasting a Hi-Def TV channel.

For a HD antenna, a regular old rabbit ear-type antenna will do.

Do i need to use HDMI wire if i have a cable box ?


It depens on what the cable box outputs are, you need to see if it has RF Coaxial jack (use CH3 or CH 4 on the TV), composite video out (Yellow RCA jack) with red and white RCA for audio, component video outputs (Red, Green, and Blue RCA jacks), or HDMI output jacks. HDMI and component video are for HI-DEF if you subscribe to the HI-def package. The cable company should provide you with the owner manual. Please post back with more info.

I bought a Nintendo Wii off of a guy and I didn't realize when I did that it came with Hi-Def RCAs. My TV only has a standard RCA hookup. I was told that I could still use the Hi-Def RCAs but what colors...


Those are not High Def RCAs.

The cables you received are called "component" when the picture is broken down to its component colors, red, green, and blue.

When compared to "composite" cables (RCA), the yellow is all the components in one, which is the video cable. The other red and white are audio.

Your component should be RGB, Red & White (audios)

What you need to do is buy a composite cable for the Wii, which shouldn't cost that much--usually under $10 bucks. Save the component cables for when you get a new TV since those are the more expensive of the two!

What cables do I need to connect my toshiba satellite m55 laptop to my hi def tv?


This really depends on the connectsionon your hi def TV. The laptop doesn't have an HDMI port (these ports carry sound and video in one cable), but it does have a VGA out port as well as a s-video out.

You can connect an s-video cable from your laptop to your hi-def TV, if the TV has an s-video input port.

You can also purchase a VGA to Component converter if your hi-def TV has component inputs, these are the Red, Green, Blue inputs. Amazon sells these, here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Premium-VGA-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B000RJLSZU

If you have a DVI input you can purchase a VGA to DVI converter as well. These are very inexpensive and you can find a wide selection on Amazon, here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=vga+to+dvi

Finally, you can also purchase a VGA to HDMI converter. This would be the most expensive option, but you can use this box to put both sound and video from the laptop onto the HDMI cable. YOu would need both the converter and cable for this to work. Converter is here: http://www.amazon.com/VGA-Audio-HDMI-Converter-Adapter/dp/B0015YWV1G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263068538&sr=1-3

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.
