Dx-L321-10A: M-B315AA on direct tv. Can't get HD. Says restricted. Tried comp. No good, haven't used HDMI. Do I need Digital? Thanks for your time.


These are directly from your users manual:

  • Built-in HDTV tuner: Add HD-capable antenna to receive over-the-air high-definition broadcasts, where available. Optional set-top box required for high-definition cable or satellite programming

  • 2 HDMI inputs: Provide an uncompressed all-digital audio/video link for the highest quality connection and support copy-protected HD broadcast content.
  • you need to do one of 2 things to get HDTV on your device. Either attach an HD- capable antenna or attach an HDMI cable from your satellite tv providers box. Good luck.

How do i tune my SAMSUNG PS42S5H for high definition channels


Does this model of TV have a built in HD receiver? I've had a quick look at the instruction manual and it looks more or less the same as mine at home. I've not got HD tv reception built in but have to use a set top box. If you're in UK, it should have Freeview HD sticker from the box or manual somewhere but as this looks like an early model tv (only 1 HDMI socket) then you may need a HD set top box such as Sky HD or Freeview HD

How can I get high definition on the tv? I have it set to receive the signal from my cable tv company but it transmits only a regular signal.


Check these things to solve this problem:

Do you have an High Definition TV? If you bough it recently, then you probably do. If you are unsure, look on the back of the TV for the model numbe and search on Google to read find information about he model of TV you have. If you don't have an HD TV, you will need to upgrade if you want High Definition.

Is the TV connected to the cable box with an HDMI or Composite cable?
You can order a cheap HDMI cable at Monoprice.com.
If you are using old style AV cables (red, yellow, white) then you will not get an HD signal from the cable box.

Check the TV settings to make sure it is set to display in HD. Look in the manual for help here. It is probably in the Input Settings.

You will need to call your cable company and make sure you are getting HD service. If you are not the you will only get Standard Definition. You may have to pay more or upgrade your cable box.

Cannot adjust picture size on vizio


If the picture size isn't changing with the television's picture size adjustment setting there could be a few things going on. Check to see that you're in the right input on the television i.e. if you are connected to a high definition receiver make sure you are not in the tv/tuner input (tv display would say analog channel 3 or 4). Make sure your tv is switched to the high definition input i.e. component 1 hdmi 1 and etc. If you are in the high definition input already check and see that your cable box or satellite tv receiver is set to the proper resolution. For example if you have a 720p television make sure the cable box is set to 720p not 1080i. Last but not least look for the hd zoom # button on the cable remote. The button may also say format or aspect.

720p is putting out signal of 480i or p only


Your Tv has its own settings for high definition.

Look in your manual for appearance setting and turn the tv to 720p high definition.

That should be enough. OH! And make sure your PS3 is set for HD output too! My HD tv downconverts occasionally when the Uverse box shuts off and defaults to low def output.

Sound only works with HD, not SD


Check the setup menus of the Insignia TV, as most sets have an advanced setting hidden deep in the setup menu to use the HDMI cable for sound - OR- use component RCA inputs for sound. My Philips TV has this.

It's odd that this only shows up for SD content...I would see if there is a firmware update available for that from the manufacturer. The one thing that you see lots of firmware fixes for are HDMI issues.

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

Grainy picture


Greetings israelmaker,

In order to receive true high definition television, you will need a high definition cable box. Basic channels are going to look more grainy and not as clear overall even with an HD box, however you won't be able to view or decode the actual HD channels without a box.

In addtion, what type of cables are you using to hook up your existing box? This can have a substantial impact on the picture you see.

I hope some of this helps.
