    I am using HDMI and I bought a surge protector for my cable lines but the cable technician said I would not be able to use that. Cable company keeps suggesting to "reset" my HD cable box.

Greetings blueberrie,

Many times the cables that you are using can contribute to picture quality. You will want to utilize the best connection possible, in most cases HDMI or component cables. Also, you may want to invest in a line filter, sometimes known as a surge protector. Many of these items are able to control the inconsistencies in power your unit receives, giving you clean power, which will influence picture quality.

I hope this helps!

Lip sync


Vizio HDTV- Lips out of sync

Anyone with a new Vizio E601i-A3 60" or 70" HDTV that is having audio "Lips out of sync problems" with a cable or satellite box.

On Comcast cable boxes (or others), here's what you need to do: FIND MENU for AUDIO or HDMI setup on CABLE BOX or Satellite Box.

FOR COMCAST

1. Turn on TV and have Cable box Turned OFF.

2. Press MENU on COMCAST REMOTE.

3. Go to AUDIO Setting OR HDMI Setting. (On cable or Sat. BOX)

4. Change setting from Auto to L-PCM. (Turn off cable box to exit)

This should resolve any "out of sync" lips to picture after commercials on HD channels.

*This is a handshaking issue from the cable box to the Vizio E601i-A3

Just bought the Samsung 550 Plasma Hd Tv can you tell me if we just use a regular cable from the wall to the Tv will the picture quality be sort of off.. WE have an HM MI cable from the cable box to the TV...


unfortunately cable does not give you the best quality picture and "fuzziness ' is the reduced resolution being displayed on the tv.
the easy way to check the picture quality is to get a decent hd antenna and scan using it for free hdtv signals, if these are also fuzzy, on all channels then the tv has a problem but if it is only on a few lower resolution channels then its just the way it is until everyone is hd 720 or better.

New flat screen hdtv has a fuzzy picture


Yes you will get a better picture quality out of a cable box if you get an HD cable box.
The reason you are getting the diminished picture is due to the signal you are feeding the TV is an analog signal. The newer HD TV's are made for digital TV and this older technology shows all its flaws on this type of TV.

When you get the new box understand that the same channels you are getting plugged directly into the tv are still going to have some grainy look to them but the good thing is that a lot of them are starting to be rebroadcast on HD channels and that is where your new toy will truly shine.

Enjoy your new TV...

Good Luck...

Some HD channels won't work on new Samsung tv.


Some hd channels can only be viewed by watching thru a cable box. If you are using a cable box check with your cable provider to see what the issue is.

make sure your cable box is hd compatible, also depending on the cable box you may have to go through your settings and change the resolution and also change your settings through the menu's on the tv itself. what type of cable box do you have? is it a satellite box? which provider?

Fuzzy pic on Dynex 32 LCD TV


I am sumising that you have checked the menu controls on your tv and are recieving your signal from the cable box , so therefore if it is not comong from the Aerial and direct from the cable company then the picture should be clear .. However sometimes people dont check to see if the signal is RGB or composite from the box RGB is usually best if you have a scart socket connection or SVHS if your set has that capability .. sometimes people have an old VHs recorder and the sinal is coming from that to the set through the Aerail fly lead if it is you will probably find they are conflicting giving you a poor picture retune your Video to another channel instructions should be in its manuel if not come back to me ... reagrds Vortash

New vizio 26'' hdtv seems sharp from a distance, but pixalated and


it is important to understand the difference in digital cable and high def. high definision is on a fiber optic display alwing milions of pixels per square inch on your tv. the resolution effects your fuzzy picture you are recieving . the only real way to fix that fuzzy dull picture is to get a HD box from your cable provider and an HDMI cable to conect it to your HD TV. this is the only connection you will need for picture and top line sound. In the end the fee is usually $9.95 or less a month and it is well worth the difference in quality of TV viewing.

Grainy picture


Greetings israelmaker,

In order to receive true high definition television, you will need a high definition cable box. Basic channels are going to look more grainy and not as clear overall even with an HD box, however you won't be able to view or decode the actual HD channels without a box.

In addtion, what type of cables are you using to hook up your existing box? This can have a substantial impact on the picture you see.

I hope some of this helps.

FUZZY (SNOWY) PICTURE


Well, I can tell you it shouldnt have anything to do with your not having an HD box. The TV does not require a HD signal to give you a quality picture. The HD box only gives you the enhanced HD signal, but should work as any regular TV without it. How do you have it connected?

Change your input source. You are probably on Input Source "TV". My HDMI cable is plugged in INPUT 4 so make sure that your TV is set to the right INPUT.
