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??

Re: Having to manually change TV input when switching...
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.

If this model has that it will be one of the rear sets of component jacks which will be marked as HD or 1080-----use the input button on the remote or the set if there to change to the correct input on the set. Hookup and select correct input.
The way you describe having your TV/DVD connected you wont see the picture in the regular channel line-up. You will have to tell the TV to to switch to the video input. This is usually done by navigating the menu to the "input" and selecting video 1, video 2 etc Failing that try changing to channel 00 ( just type 00 in remote) Some sets will allow you to type in 02 and then hit the channel down button on the remote.
If you have the user manual it will give you the exact steps you need to take.
the tv has a configaration that conveys the sets focus on both audio and video performance. full hd resolution of 1920-1080 pixels.
hdmi inputs allow connection of the generation of 1080p sources for the systems which offer 1080p outputs
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?
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.
