You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Picture quality is not great on my hd ready lcd tv


If your console has an hdmi port, which sits just above the av port on the back of the console, you can use an hdmi cable this will improve the quality of the picture.
hope this helps.

LCD TV IS CONNECTED TO CABLE USING SATELITE. CABLE IS RUN APPROX 150 FT FROM SAT DISH TO TV. RECEPTION IS VERY GRAINY,,,IS IT THE LENGTH OF CABLE? THE CABLE IS 100FT CONNECTED TO 50FT CONNECTED TO TV....


Is the satellite receiver HD or standard?
If it is standard you should hook up the box to the tv via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) and this will help with the picture quality.

If it is a HD receiver then hook up the box to the tv using a component video cable and this will drastically change the quality of the picture.

Using a coax cable to attach from the box to the tv essentially is connecting an analog signal to the tv and this will produce a lower quality picture...

Good Luck!!

BRAND NEW 42in. vizio 1080 LCD HD 120HZ picture not clear


the tv models in store are usually have samples from blueray dvds. standard dvd players will look fuzzy because it only submits standard dvd picture quality. you can try an upvert dvd player. tho i cant promise picture quality. i have an xbox 360 that upverts the quality. if you get a bluray player i recommend hdmi wires. if you get upvert dvd player and it has an hd outlet red, blue, green wires it might work. i havent tried one myself. if you dont want to spend money on bluray dvds. i recommend an xbox console. it upverts dvds through hdmi or hd red, blue, green wires

Bad picture


  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

Does a HDMI cable help with reception


No, this will not make a difference with tv reception, just better picture when the reception comes in.

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

Pay tv reception


Austar recently made changes that prevent the use of their smart cards in decoders other than Austar boxes.

Assuming you are using a legit Austar smart card, you will need to use it in the Austar decoder it was supplied with, for it to work now.
