How do i see digital tv with my sony kp-53v75


If its an older set, it probably wont accept digital TV programs. You will need to get a set top box to convert the digital signal to work with your TV.

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

HD TV - Comcast - Samsung TV - "Component 3 not supported mode"


Hello willardlang,

This is because of the type of Component Video being used. Let me explain We got so use to the term RGB to explain component video we for got that there are two standards for component video and they are not compatible. These two standards are Component Analog Video (Y, R-Y, B-Y) and Component Digital Video (Y/Pb/Pr) or (Y/Cb/Cr)

Now, the problem is they never told us the public which one to use and when, they only told us RGB. Now to complicate things, you have have to figure out which one to use. So here is a helpful yet flawed hint:
If the TV was made after 2003 use Component Digital Video (Y/Pb/Pr) or (Y/Cb/Cr)
If the TV was made before 2003 use Component Analog Video (Y, R-Y, B-Y)

Yes this is flawed but for the most part it's good.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

1. Do I need any additional equipment to watch HDTV broadcasts on my HDTV-compatible TV?
In order to view over-the-air (OTA) HDTV broadcasts, you need to be within the reception area of a TV station broadcasting HDTV signals. Some TVs may require a set-top HDTV tuner and an external antenna to receive the broadcasts. Your cable or satellite provider may also offer HDTV channels as a part of their service, eliminating the need for a separate tuner. Please contact your local service provider to find out what kind of HDTV services they may offer.

2. What is CableCARD and how does it work?
HDTVs with CableCARD slots can accept a small card from your cable provider that allows you to receive standard definition and high definition digital broadcasts without a bulky set-top cable box. Please call your cable company to find out if they offer this service in your area.

HDMI, which stands for "High-Definition Multimedia Interface", is the consumer electronic industry's first connection capable of transmitting uncompressed digital audio/video signals. Components featuring HDMI can transmit both digital audio and video over one convenient cable, replacing the tangled mess that resides behind many home theater components. HDMI also offers improved quality over traditional analog connections thanks to all-digital transmission. Digital sources like DVDs and HDTV programming can now be transferred digitally from source to display without analog conversions that can degrade the original signal.

Unlike the HDMI interface, DVI only handles digital video. Through the use of an adapter, a DVI device can be connected to an HDMI device, but only video content can be transmitted. The audio signal would have to be transmitted through other methods such as analog RCA outputs or an optical digital output.

4. What's the difference between 720p and 1080i HDTV broadcasts? Does my CRT projection HDTV support both?
HDTV signals can be broadcast in either 720p and 1080i. It's up to the broadcaster which signal format to use, and both have their benefits. Our CRT projection HDTVs display 1080i signals in their native format. For 720p broadcasts, you can use the settings on your HDTV set-top tuner, cable box, or satellite tuner to convert a 720p signal into a 1080i signal that your TV can display.

Your widescreen TV has an aspect ratio of 16:9 (1.78:1), which is the aspect ratio of HDTV. However, movies are filmed at several different aspect ratios, including 2.35:1. Also referred to as "scope", 2.35:1 is a very panoramic aspect ratio that provides a wide field of view in the theater. Scope is much wider than your widescreen TV, so it still requires the use of letterboxing ("black bars") to fit the entire image on screen. Some TVs and DVD players have a zoom function that allows you to blow up the image so it fills the screen, but the sides of the image must be cropped in order to do so.

6. What will 4:3 broadcasts and DVDs look like on a widescreen TV?
There are multiple settings for adjusting the appearance of 4:3 material on Panasonic widescreen TVs. It can be viewed with black bars on the sides, preserving the way it was originally intended to be viewed. Some viewers find the black bars distracting, so they might prefer one of the stretch modes that lets you fill the entire TV screen with the image. One such mode is the JUST (justify) mode, which stretches only the outer portion of the picture while leaving the center untouched.

Wide screen adjustment does not hold keeps going to default narrow screen


Hi,

Most analogue TV's do this because the analogue signal has no way to tell the TV that its a widescreen picture.

European TV's that use scart cables have a switching pin on the cable so the digital set top box can tell the TV that the picture is widescreen.

If you're in the US or down under this info wont be much help though.

Hope this helps
