Having to manually change TV input when switching between HD and standard

Is there a way that I can set up my TV such that I do not have to switch between "component video" and "ant" when I switch from watching a standard station to watching an HD station? When I set it up to work off component only, I loose picture size on the standard channels. I've tried to play around with screen sizes and such, but I can't seem to figure out how to make it work.
Or is it that this TV is not capable of doing what I wish it to do??

Salutations ScottB15,

Looking over your owners manual, I hate to say that it appears there is not a automatic way to switch between Ant to component video. As your television does not appear to have a built-in digital tuner you would be connecting it through the component connections, and as the only analog tuner is running through the antenna connection you would have to use that.

On the bright side with the transition to digital broadcasting this should be something you will have to do less and less. And once 2/17/2009 comes around you won't have to do it at all.

Wish I had better news, but at least there is always a bright side.

Our tv will not recognize the cable cord attached to it. We hooked another tv to it. The cord is not bad. We attempted to search for channels and it says there is no cable attached. Is there a button that...


check in the menu under picture or video settings and see if there is options for the inputs. some tv's allow you to disable inputs for faster switching. if you only have a dvd player but your tv allows for 8 input devices, you're always having to press the button many times to go from tv mode, to dvd, and back. disabling inputs allows you to switch between only what you use.
press menu and navigate to the video settings. if you see "inputs" or "labels", select it and you can probably activate and deactivate inputs. my guess is the one you are trying to connect to isn't "on".
searching internet i really only found places that charge for the manual...here it's $10

Light is on and green but no video coming out to television what might be the problem.


Typically, this problem occurs if the audio/video (A/V) cable is not connected correctly, or if the A/V cable is faulty.

Solution 1: Set the television or monitor to the correct input
Make sure that the TV or monitor is set to the correct input for the console. Check the TV or monitor's manual to see how to configure the video inputs, or try to use the console on a different TV or monitor.

Solution 2: Connect the A/V cable securely
Sometimes, you can insert the A/V cable far enough to prevent any red lights from flashing on the Xbox 360 console but not far enough for the console to transmit images or sounds to the screen.

Solution 3: Switch the Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable to the correct setting
Make sure that the TV/HDTV switch on the cable is set correctly.
  • For standard-definition TVs with only the yellow connector plugged in, set the switch to TV.
  • For high-definition TV or monitors with the red, blue, and green connectors plugged in, set the switch to HDTV.

How to I change tv to 1080i from 480i?


this should automatically be done by the tv. If you input to a standard def input (ie yellow plug) or are using standard def cable it will be 480. If u change to a HD input or an HD channel it should automatically switch to 1080. The input displayed on the tv that says 480i or 1080i is just a result of what is being played, not a setting to be changed.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def


Hi!
I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.


Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.

Probem getting sky to work with a new TV


An HD TV connects in the same way as a standard TV.

Connect a scart lead from the TV scart of the Sky box to the TV.

When you switch on the Sky box it should automatically switch the TV to the correct external input.

Game mode on tv


If you have a HDTV then you need to change the resolution to 720i or 720p to support the XBox 360 HD video. If you have a standard TV (non-HD) then you'll need to change your XBox 360's video settings to non-HD. The problem sounds like your mixing up HD video signal. I really need more info about your TV. Is it HD? Or regular?

First of all, is your blue "HD" light lit up on the front of your Uverse box?

If yes, then you're in HD

If No, you need to check your connections from Box to TV
1.Those Red-Blue-Green cables are for video only, they don't carry sound and shouldn't be connected to audio outs. Audio needs a seperate cable. Make sure your Red isn't on the audio out which is also red. Make sure your blue and green aren't switched with each other either. Check that at both ends.
2. Try an HDMI cable. It will carry audio and video together and it's one cord instead of 5.
3. What brand/model of TV is it? Is it an older projection TV? The HD tuner might be shot. The individual color tubes commonly fail after a few years.
4. Are you selecting 720p or 1080i from your TV's menu or from the Uverse menu? You'll need to set it through the Uverse box, not the TV.
5.Follow -Menu -Settings -Aspect Ratio to change to 720 or 1080. This should start an autotest which will scramble your picture for about 5 seconds, then bring you back to a menu asking you to keep settings or revert back settings. If you never see that question pop up, then your TV isn't supporting the HD, and you settings will be rolled back automatically. If the question does pop up and you can read it, select "keep settings" and press OK. Your blue HD light should come on the front of the box now.

HDTV Cable box conflict


This set does not support 480I in the DTV mode, only 480P and 1080I is supported. Try setting the analog setting in the cable box to 480p and that should take care of watching the set in DTV. Most cable boxes have a setting for format changes in the customer menu, depending on the type of box. If you are able to change the format, then the other inputs will not work since they need a 480I signal, as well as VCRs. Another setup could be to use the S-Video cable or Video input jacks to get a better picture in 480I instead of using the cable input. However, when changing from HD to Analog, you will have to change to the correct input on the set as well. Hope this helps.
