Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Hi, I have the following problem: I bought an SONY 55HX800 TV in the US, PAL to NTSC converter (Com World WGC-RF1080p ) and need to connect these to an MAXIMUM TS-3002 CX-CI that allows watching Conax scrambled channels. How do I connect TV, converter and MAXIMUM? I can't get to the installation of the MAXIMUM because I can't produce the installation guide. How do I do this, please?! Secondly, how do I subsequently connect a bluray/DVD player? Thank you very much in advance Martin Hasforth

    My problem is that I can't start installing the MAXIMUM because I can't produce the installation guide.

    When I connect the Converter I can search channels - yet without involving the Maximum-box.

    How do I make the Maximum-box work with the two other components - TV and Converter?

    Hi Azrael,



    thank you for your response.



    The problem is that when I connect the Maximum directly to the TV I get a message something like: "Cannot read signal". I have the manual for the Maximum - but I don't get to use it because the TV gives this error message.



    If I connect the converter also I get the message: "No signal"



    I can make the converter function without the Maximum. But the whole idea is to activate the Maximum so that I can watch the Conax scrambled channels.



    Can you solve this, please?!



    BR

    Hi again,



    a final question:



    When I connect the Maximum and the TV by HDMI cables I obtain: perfect sound for apparently all (24) channels. Yet visually I get the message: "Unsupported signal. Please check the device output."



    When I connect the Maximum and the TV by Video 1/Component 1 I get: perfect sound for apparently all (24) channels. Yet visually I get the message: "No signal. Check the external input or select another input using the INPUT button."



    When I connect the converter I do obtain the menu at the TV screen as opposed to when I connct the Maximum.



    I connect without problems a bluray player which conveys perfect A/V quality, also in 3D.



    The TV flawlessly shows mpeg-4 from USB placed either in TV-slot or in slot at bluray player.



    When I connect an old DVD player I get perfect sound and a reasonable, though not perfect picture.



    MY QUESTION NOW IS:



    Does this mean that the TV has a fault in the control processor?



    Thank you in advance

    Hi,



    thank you for your quick reply. The trouble is that I have had the Maximum checked out and it works fine on an other TV. . !



    I wonder if it is the TV that demands a higher pitch than the Maximum can deliver and hence refuses to show a picture? Because sound seems perfect.



    Could it be the case that he TV is installed to demand e.g. 1080pi and the Maximum can only deliver 480i - so I need to try to find the proper setting for this connection either at the TV or at the Maximum??



    The only trouble I've had with the this Sony HX800 is that it sometimes refuses to play even mpeg-4 if it considers the quality too bad (!)





    BR

First of all i don't know why you need the Com World converter; the Sony and the Maximum both have HDMI connectors that will allow full AV communication so the standard of the received signal no longer matters and the Maximum is capable of receiving and decoding all that the Com World can.
If you need the manual for the Maximum you can download it from here

To connect another BR/DVD player just use another HDMI cable.

    If you connect 2 devices in the same socket and using the same cable then the problem isn't with the devices, it's either with the cables you are using or the tv.



    Connect the Maximum and the player as i told you, select the correct HDMI input for each from the sources menu and try again. If again you get the No signal message then the tv has a fault in the HDMI connectors or the control processor. In that case you will have to call a repairman to find out what's at fault in there.

  • Azrael SRL Nov 13, 2010

    No no fault in the tv - otherwise you wouldn't have been able to see the BR player. No, something is wrong with the Maximum receiver - the signal that it emits can't be decoded (heck, it can't even be recognized) by the tv. Since the Sony is a top of the line tv that is capable of displaying every single type of AV signal , that means that the Maximum is defective. One last test: connect the Maximum to it using the Composite connections (just the yellow connector for the video). If it fails even now you will know for sure that it's defective.

  • Azrael SRL Nov 13, 2010

    On the Composite connection the Maximum should have delivered a standard definition signal - 480i. Maybe something is off there. Try this: connect the Maximum in the other tv, go into the settings and make sure that 480i and the 4/3 format are selected, then close the menu and close the unit. Plug it in the Sony using the same Composite connection - if the Maximum is ok then the image should be visible. With the image visible you can change progressively the settings until you break them - then you will know the limits of what is accepted by the Sony from it. Plug it back in the other tv, take it down a notch and keep it like that until you can buy a better receiver.

You need to connect the HDMI out of the receiver(MAXIMUM TS-3002 CX-CI) to the HDMI input of the Converter(see image for HDMI input and output at the back of the coverrter)
http://allregionfreedvdplayer.com/images/CMD-RF1080p_Rear_11-17-09.jpg
Note that the unit has only 1 HDMI port. Henceforth if you want to connect an additional device you should connect it to the component input(Red, blue, green ports at the front for component video in and the other two for stereo audio in) though I do not recommend it as you have to watch your blu ray in standard definition(480i) which I am sure is not what you want from a bluray of all things! You are better off disconnecting the HDMI input coming from the receiver into the HDMI in of your converter and plugging in the HDMI cable from your bluray into that port.

My tv has NTSC system but our local transmission is pal system. so picture is black & white and has no audio


hi,

It seems you are going to have to buy a PAL to NTSC converter box, check out the following info i got from eHow.

NTSC, or National Television System Committee, is the system used to broadcast television that is still analog in North and South America and parts of Asia. PAL, or Phase Alternate Line, is one of the other two analog broadcast systems used in much of the rest of the world. If you are in an area that can pick up both, but your television is made to receive only one of them, you can buy an PAL-to-NTSC converter that will allow the correct input to your TV.

Purchase a PAL-NTSC converter. Most mid-range converters will convert back and forth between either system, so if you're not sure which system your television picks up, you can buy one of the dual converters. See the References section for an example of a mid-range converter. When you purchase, choose either 110V or 220V power source, and which country you are ordering from (you will need the appropriate power cord adapter for your country).

Plug the included connector cord from the "Input" (or possibly "Antennae") jack on the back of your television to the "Output" on the converter. Also, plug the power adapter into a floor jack or other power supply.

Move the Input switch to PAL and the Output switch to NTSC on the converter if it is a dual converter. This will enable you to receive PAL TV signals and convert them for your NTSC TV.

I HAVE A SONY WEGA TV KV27FS13 . WILL THIS WORK ON PAL SYSTEM


I'm sorry to inform you that the TV cannot be used directly with PAL color system. However, you can use a PAL to NTSC converter to resolve the issue. You can get the PAL to NTSC converter from any local Electronics Shop.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Convert ntsc to pal for sony bravia tv


While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.

No colour..


Sounds like you're feeding the ADVC the wrong broadcast format. Either PAL when the ADVC is in NTSC mode, or NTSC when the ADVC is in PAL mode.

Alternatively, your capture software may have a broadcast format setting as well, and that may not be matching what the ADVC is sending out. Remember that the ADVC does not do NTSC<->PAL format conversion, so NTSC analog input becomes NTSC DV, and PAL analog input becomes PAL DV.
