Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Open Question

I have a digital Hitachi TV and ITV1 keeps pixelating when I watch. I have tried to switch it to analogue so I can at least watch ITV but that too is unwatchable. Is there any way I can manually retune the analogue option ? I have tried reconfiguring the channels but that has not worked and it is only ITV that it effected. Although this is a signal problem it is odd that only ITV1 is effected and it looks as if I will have this problem until 2012. I live in flats in north london and it is a communal ariel. In the short term I want to know if I can manually retune ITV on analogue ? how would I go about this. It is a very annoying problem as ITV is a main channel and I can't watch Coronation Street properly. Regards Mark

I had exactly the same problem. I finally found the power button on the underside of the TV. It is well hidden and to find it, you need to run your fingers underneath the panel. Turn it off for a minute or so and turn it back on and then turn on the switch on the panel on the upper right side where the channel and volume buttons are. It works.

Here is what you need to do to fix this. Call Hitachi Global Storage Technologies & request for the firmware upgrade.
1-800-HITACHI (448-2244)

They will send it to you for free. You get a small SD card that plugs into the back of your TV just below the Cable Card Slot. I wouldn'd have known it was there unless the instructions in the mail packet told me so.

To determine if you need to upgrade go Into the Setup Menu. Then, Go to Software Upgrades & look at the software version. I had 0110.xxxx. the version I upgraded to was 0125.0000 & it fixed the audio problem on 7-1 & 11-1.

now all channels work great.

THANKS HITACHI!!!

Fisrt check that the aerial connector going into the TV is OK.
The UK is in the process of switching off the analogue channels and reassigning to digital TV. This means that the signal strengths of various transmitters are getting stronger and channels are moving around to different frequencies. Try retuning the digital TV stations. If this does not work then try an external DTV box to see if the TV is at fault or it is a bad signal on the aerial.

Firstly, my DVDR7260 (so I guess yours too) can only use analogue channel updates so it should be set to ITV, that is channel 03 (if you have usual analogue channels tuned). BUT by now that suggestion is redundant as Guide Plus updates have been stopped since 1st Jan 2011 as part of the Digital switch-over. Nice one! If anyone knows how to invoke the Freeview EPG on the DVDR7260, that may be the one thing to keep it out of the bin.

Cannot get good tv signal since ITV and other channels have gone digital in the last 3 weeks. The picture keeps breaking up and the sound goes intermittently.


The transition from analogue TV broadcasting has been painfull in some areas. the only way to get out of this frustration is to buy yourself a digital set top box . This will convert the digital TV signals to analogue form so that your TV can pick them clearly. In any case ,the trend is to have all analogue transmissions phased out altogether

There is not a problem with the TV despite it's age this is can be due to your reception of the digital package for BBC. Have you checked through he full listings? sometimes the BBC channel will be at a different number setting because of the transmitter you are receiving. I assume you are using a digital box, you can enter a menu which will give you an indication of the strength & quality of the incoming signal. Do you pick up some of the other BBC channels such as BBC3 or CBBC? It's possible your aerial strength is a bit weak for the digital BBC package & you may need to have that looked at.
