The changeover slated for Feb 2009 only effects those people that receive TV signals from antennas. If you currently use cable or satelite, you do not requrie a set top box. Your particular model has an HD tuner so you would be fine in both cases.

I have a 42panasonic plasma tv model#th-42pwd7 it has no cable antenna terminal in the back of the tv but it has rgb terminals i have a converter box and x box360 how can i get a antenna tv signal


Its a Progressive Wide Plasma Display. It wont have a built in Turner. So you will not be able to connect antenna to the TV.You have to use a set top box or cable box and connect its output t the TV.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

How do I change to NTSC


Unless it has it built into the set you cannot--need a box for say PAL to NTSC or whatever format the set uses that is being sent to the set.

They make set top boxes for this.

My problem is I have a dvd player DMR-ES 15 I live in australia is it possible to tune in the new tv stations example seven 2


It is not possible to tune in 7two, channel 11, GO! or similar digital channels with this model DVD recorder, as its tuner would most likely be analogue only. You would either need to upgrade to a model with a digital tuner built in, or purchase an external set top box, capable of SD and HD digital reception, and connect its AV outputs to the respective inputs of the recorder, in order to record the channels you want.

However, being in OZ, those digital channels are available as free to air - all you would need is the appropriate receiver to enjoy them. I recommend a set top box which offers HD as well as SD.

I purchased a Grundig GUD1500XI2 Digital Freeview Box for my old small TV. Unfortunately it insists on filling the TV screen on 4.3 ratio by cutting off the sides of the picture. If 16.9 is selected it...


Please remember all modern Digital Set Top boxes are designed with HD LCD/Plasma TV's in mind. Their default aspect ratio is 16 : 9. The reverse was possible- LCD/Plasma allow you to change their viewing aspect ratio from 16 : 9 to 4:3 ( some models also allow 14:9 ).
You will have to return the box if it makes it intolerable for you to watch geometric distortions !!

The sylvania plasma tv does not have a coaxial cable connection, how do I connect my local cable?


You just can't. Not without an external receiver.

Your TV is simply missing a piece of hardware - it is called TUNER - that can understand the signal that runs through the cable (or an antenna) and decode it into simple video signal.

So the only solution is to buy an EXTERNAL TUNER device (also called external receiver or external set top TV box).

Those are rather cheap compared with what they used to be, but if you care for an advice from professional it is: sell your TV and use the revenue towards the purchase of a new one. All TVs currently in the mainstream sales channels have that thing built-in.

Some of the older models that you will find on Craigslist (like yours) do not.

it is usually not a problem for users with cable TV because most cable TV boxes also have a built-in tuner. If you are talking about how to connect your TV to your local cable company then the right thing to do is call your cable operator and tell them you want a newer receiver that outputs standard composite (one yellow one red one white) or component (green, blue, yellow and white and red) - if your TV has the later.

Hope this helps. If it does please rate accordingly.

Cheers,

My LG Plasma 42PC1DV turns on but freezes, the picture is frozen but the sound stays on...the it takes a long time for it to turn off. when you turn it back on the picture goes fro about 3 seconds and does...


hi wendy, I have the same model tv and it has been doing exactly the same problem you have ever since buying it (2007 - 08) and every time it does freeze it seems to be on channel 9. The only way i overcome this problem is to turn the tv off at the wall for atleast an hour and turn it back on and it seems to re-set itself or should i say the built in set top box re-sets itself and it works fine for a few months and bang it does it again. Apparently there is a LG software update but only technicians can install this. Anyway thats my story! :)

Sony Viao HDMI to Panasonic Plasma TV HDMI Input handshake


Try all of your HDMI inputs, one may be rated at the correct voltage to be able to display the video. The offical part that Panasonic was giving for this was PDPHDMIKIT, its basically a HDMI extender that regulates the voltage. The part is still available online, try partstore.com or andrews-electronics.

G,day ,I,ve purchased a PS50C91HD plasma TV,and I live at Killarney Vale NSW, my question is,do I need a Ditgital Set Top Box, for a good picture or the best image the TV can produce.


Hi lpgrabbits

You have purchased a TV that has an inbuilt digital tuner, so no worries, you get the best performance(and the extra channels) without a set top box. Just have to be sure that you have loaded up the digital channels to your preset list. Any dramas, I can help you out.

Digital TV


It is HD ready, which means to get HD you will need to connect a HDMI cable to a HDMI source such as a SKY HD / VIRGIN HD SET TOP BOX or a HD DVD player to take advantage of HD.
