Try an antenna if you want to get analog over the air. I have a feeling that with the way the standards are changing, you will only be able to get digital channels. After February, the analog channels won't be around.

If you are using cable tv you need an HDTV box to get high def.

Unusable signal is being displayed on television although it is connect to a digital cable box. It gives the same error even when connected to an analog cable box


You will need to have the tuner checked out, try connecting your cable box using the audio/video inputs to your tv(vid1, vid2 etc.)it should give you a normal picture.

Picture is all green tones when on a station ... but when it is on the tv guide chanel the colors are all great except for the little square display of the station it is tuned to drsantucci4


I have the same tv with the same problem ---Green and I have found that the HDMI cable from my Blue rayplayer works just fine when the regular tv is green /I have come to the conclusion that the digital board is not working right so I just went to cox and got the box . I am going to hook my cable up to the top set box from cox and then I am going to hook the component video cables to the tv then I will bypass the Board ,and not scew the cable into the tv . we shall see I think it will work as long as my HDMI and component jacks dont give out to .

So you are telling me I need a digital converter for this TV to g


Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.

Get closed captions on some channels, but not all, even though it is CC


RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.

Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.

If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.

If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.

Connecting TV to cable service for HDTV


normally you need a converter box for hd because normal stations are broadcasted in hd.....its not common enough for them to do it...and you probably have to buy a package with your cable company for the hd channels. another thing...is your tv hd ready?

RCA D56W20 picture problems


More information is required to properly troubleshoot this problem. How is your television connected when you are watching HD? Do you have HDMI for this, do you have a satellite or digital cable box? For analogue are you using regular coax antenna (cable TV), or are you going through a cable or satellite box?
This could be related to the aspect ration setting. perhaps you ahve changed your aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3 or some other setting. If you are connected via HDMI, then the digital signal may be "normalizing" your picture during HD, but reverting back to the other setting.

Check you video settings very carefully. HD televisions are very difficult to tweak properly.

HI i have a 42" Hitachi HDTV 1080p (LCD)


Most newer Digital TV's don't display Analog signal very well. Often worse then an Analog TV. This is normal to a degree. If your Wii has component  cables, try using that. As for cable, you might get a better signal with Digital Cable.

Hello stonehor,
Do a quick check on your cable wire. Make sure they are all pushed in properly both on the cable box and on the TV connector. What we have found is that these cable are not pushed in all the way. If this happened on both component input, you may have an open connection further back on that input board.

Best regards

Problem w60 inch using hdtv cable box


i know this problem, happened to me with the comcast Motorola HD receiver box. The key is with the setting in the cable box. Switch on the TV. Set the channel to normal tuner channel 3 or HD input. Turn off the cable HD box. Press the Menu Button on the Cable box or the remote. You should see a Menu. Use the cursor keys to navigate The default setup is also one of the option, Right click on your cursor keys acts like the computer keyboard enter key and applies the change. The default setup is 16:9, the shacking would happen if you have set the picture type to "PAN SCAN". change it to either 16:9 or 4:3 Letter Box. The shacking should stop. Hope it helps.
