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

RCA Colortrak Stereo Monitor won't play DVD/Nintendo


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.

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?

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.
