You may complain that the video quality is not as clean as the original DVD after ripping DVD to standard video.

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.

XBOX NOW PLAYS IN BLACK AND WHITE WITH OLDER TV DID WORK FINE AND DOES ON NEW HDTV ALL CABLES GOOD NOT SURE WHAT TO DO TO GET COLOR BACK


There is a switch that changes the video cable from SD( for use with older TV's without high definition connectivity) to HD (used for newer HD TV's with high definition.

If your older television is using a composite (yellow) connection for video, make sure the switch is in the SD position and NOT hd.

I just need to see a visual connection of xbox 360 to bacig flat screen tv.Eight now i am not getting a picture.Ihave regular x box hooked up and iam getting a picture for that.


First check the AV audio/video wires to determine if you have SD or HD wires. If you have 3 plugs (red, white, and yellow) then you will get standard definition (SD). If there is 6 wires (2 red, white, yellow, blue, and green) then you can connect High Definition (HD) and you can also connect SD as well. Now what you need to look @ if you have the wires with 6 ends (component HD AV wire), is on the part where you plug into the back of the Xbox 360, there is a switch on the box that is on the wire. It should say "TV" and "HDTV". If you have the component wires hooked up (5 wires) then select "HDTV" if you have only the 3 wires (red white yellow) for SD hooked up switch it to "TV". That is the first thing to check. The next thing to check is the way the wires are hooked up. If connecting HD, you very easily could've mixed up the 2 red wires, 1 is video and the other is audio. The way to determine which is video and which is audio is, for video, the actual plug itself is gray with a stripe of color which indicates where it goes on your tv, the audio plugs are solid white or red. And remember that the yellow plug is not used for HD setup. If you have a Xbox 360 that has the HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) input, then I would recommend using that to hook up your console. With the HDMI its only 1 wire to hook up and is extemely easy to set up. The HDMI wire transfers audio and video all in 1. There is only spot it can fit into, and its located right next to where you plug in the AV wire on the console. To me, the HDMI is "cleaner" looking b/c its only 1 wire.

Just set up my new xbox 360. My TV is not HD and I have an antenna and hd converter box. Which does not seem to connect to the xbox console in any way. It seems like my wireless device linked up but I...


I'm not sure exactly what the problem might be, but if you try turning off the x-box and looking at the back, the A/V cables that come out of the back (shaped like a trapezoid where you plug it in) and they should be plugged into your TV.

If your TV uses the Red, White, and Yellow cable side, make sure the switch on the other end of the cable where it plugs into the back of the x-box is switched to "TV".

If your TV has component input "Red, Blue, and Green" make sure you switch it to "HDTV" and you'll also have to connect the red and white (left and right) audio cables.

Your HDTV digital tuner/antenna probably won't be the place to connect them.

If you do not have either cable setups on the back of your TV, you may have to go to an electronics store and purchase an A/V converter box or connector. They are not too expensive.

If you have a little extra cash to spend, I'd recommend getting a decent size LCD flat panel HDTV. Just make sure you NEVER buy a PLASMA screen to play VIDEO GAMES on (video games will destroy the screen and leave you with burn-in or ghosting). Although they are nice for movies and slightly cheaper.

I hope I could help you.

Need a "Mitsubishi HD-1080 HDTV Receiver" to convert my TV to HD


You con't need to buy anything other than a HD satellite or cable box. A television can either handle HD or not.  The high definition sets are monitors that are capable of handing an input of up to 1080i. 
Quick and dirty. Look in the back for blue, green, red cable input sockets. There should be matching cable outs. from your cable or satellite box. get a set of  component video cables, plug them in. Determine the audio type, where RCA jacks, Toslink fiberoptic or a component cable sock. In the latter you use a cable much like a yellow video. You can get away with using a yellow video cable if need be. Now, below more specifics if needed.

No, you don't want to by the add-on from Mitsubishi.  I am assuming you have a 16-9 wide format box  
If you have a squarish box, i.e. 4:3 ratio. forget it. I don't know if any wree made for HD, but unlikely.  If you'd given me the model number could be a little more definitive. If you have a manual, it will tell you whether you can go HDTV.  
Take a look in the rear of the set and look at  the connection holes. You should have at least one set of inputs, marked in some way with the Red, Green and Blue just on the inside of the cable hole. Those are tomponent cables pops that allow you to do high definition television. These cables are video only.; Sound is a second separate question. 
There are usually some other assorted things back there, including off air tele.and maybe another kind of connecter.. Some of these might be useful if you have games etc. that attach directly to the set. In any event, those component cables say that you can  do HDTV. (NB: 
The Direct TV  HD box should have component cable outputs. You can do this directly from the DiTV box to the set. You would also need a separate Audio Cable(s). Your set should have either a toslink fiberoptic hookup and/or a component audio cable. There's no inherent advantage between those two. If you have an old video cable (yellow) than you can substitute that. 
You should now have HDTV and high quality sound through the set. You will probably have to set up the inputs and other stuff with the.remote. It's pretty logical. If you have used input x for bringing in the video, just match it up.and your on your way. 
If you are going to confuse things by trying to connect another piece of gear, e.g. dvd box, you would go to inputs two. If you have the second set of component input, then hook an HD player to it. In this setup, you adjust the sound on the set according to how it works. I assume the DTV audiio can be controlled directly just as a cable box.  -- Here's what's going on. For several years Mitsubishi built higher end televisions without tuners or slots for cable (or satellite). But they were HD capable (as I said, not all). At the time, there was no HD that mattered and not even much of a standard for it. Some wanted 729p, others wanted 1080i The advantage for 720p over 1080i was supposedly the improved movement capture. 720p isn't dead, but it's not a problem. 
You will need to set the menu on the television (using the remote) so that it says 1080i. It does not do 1080p, the newer high standard. It only has two other settings of consequence, 480i and 480p. Put it on 1080i and leave it alone. The 480i and the 480P will be on auto pilot if you have an older DVD players. If there is a high definition signal at fewer than 1080, it will be upconverted to 1080i.. 
The set will handle any signal you send it like that. You probably have an HDMI  out from your dtv or cable box. The set does not have HDMI (unless on a later model). The DTV box should have both of them. That's a simpler wiring setup that allows 1080P. On the offchance you have a box HDMI only, you'll need a converter cable.
The setup gets a little more  complicated if you're using a receiver as a switcher, i.e. all inputs go there with only one output to the set. when ou do that you're in an area outside this question. 
  is this all there is to it. But It goes only slightly more difficult if you're hooking up the   . 


You don't need the box for the television set.

This set is not HD capable.
When all signals are supposed to go to High Def., there is supposed to be a box that will convert the signal from 1080i to 480i.
I'm not sure how it will look, but, the down converted signal seems to look good for now.

The new technology is coming down in price and the new features are coming at us at record speed.

For instance:
The new tuners are capable of receiving local high definition stations using rabbit ears.
You don't need a cable box to receive all stations (except premium stations such as HBO) including High Definition if the turner has a "Clear QAM" tuner.
LEDs being used in LCD and DLP make them less vulnerable to loss of lamps prematurely and a heartier set.
LCDs and DLPs are becoming the set of choice due to contrast ratios as high as 100,000 to one and unlimited color.
A new type of set is just around the corner using laser technology (from what I have been told by manugactures).

In conclusion:

Your set is not HD, but, it should still operate when or if the change does take place. You may need to get more equipment to help with this change and it may cost more than buying a new set.
