Cannot get a picture at 720 and 1080 resolution. TV is connected to Directv HD-DVR with HDMI cable. Plug another TV into the HD-DVR and it will play at 720 and 1080, therefore must be setting on the 42HP995?? Help!

    Per owners Manual "This input (HDMI) on your TV is designed to accept HDCP program material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-compliant consumer electronic devices (such as a set-up box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output). The HDMI input is designed for best performance with 720p signals but will also accept and display 1080i, 480i, and 480p signals."

    The above statement is why I thought my TV would support the higher resolutions.

    Have not heard anything yet on a solution!

    See section from owner's manual above.

    From Specification list: 720p True HD Display

  • Capkirk Aug 23, 2008

    TV supports 720p. Anyone have any other ideas??

    I don't think its the DVR as I plugged the HDMI cable into another TV and got both 720 and 1080. Also DVR is not Toshiba, but whoever makes them for Directv. Its a simple connection, HDMI from DVR to television. TV is capable of 720, but doesn't work. At a loss.

The TV's firmware should be upgradable but can only be done by the authorised service centre. Can be done for free if its still under warranty. Call to book for a home visit from a tech by calling the authorised service centre. They can upgrade both ur TV and DVR

Another possibility is that ur HDMI cable that ur using is loosing the digital signal. This is a result of poor conduction through the cable as a result of wear and tear of the cable itself. I would recommend using a gold plated cable because they transmit the digital signal without any loss

Hope this helps

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!


Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

I am having connection issues with an LG 55lh40 television, a HD DVR from Directv, a PS3 and a DVD/VCR combo. The TV seems to be working good, but does not seem to be picking up an HDMI cable of any kind....


No picture
when connecting HDMI:
Check HDMI cable over version 1.3.
The HDMI cables don’t support HDMI version 1.3, it cause flickers or no screen
display. In this case use the latest cables that support HDMI version 1.3.

I have bose v30, dishnetwork 612 dvr. When


I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues.

What is happening is that when video resolution changes (like from regular programming to commercials) the video information is poorly sent down the HDMI line. Component cabling from your DVR will eliminate this problem.

I hope that helps.

What is the optimal cable type to connect the Samsung UN55B8500 to a DirecTV HD tuner? Are there specific TV settings to use for this cable type


The best cable hook up to use is the just the one HDMI cable. Just hook it up from box to TV and change the input selection on your TV to HDMI. Then on the Directv Box, change the resolution to 1080 for the best image.

How to adjust from 480p to higher resolution up to 1080


several things use hdmi cabling, also change resolution (can sometimes be changed on front of direct tv receiver) or may have to go through menu to change to the different resolutions. also turn the native mode OFF! having the native mode on for directv will give sometimes give you odd pictures. also whatever resolution you choose through directv menu's make sure your tv is also set to the same resolution

Is this TV HD capable?


This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...

... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...

1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...

Take care,
Rob

ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")

DVR/TV connection


With the RGB you have to run seperate audio ,I think you have ran the seperate cables for the sound but they are in the wrong place.try changing the RW from the DVR to the TV and you should get sound from them.The unfortunate truth about the HDMI is that the HDMI format has a problem effectivly communicating between components.I am a Directv certified High Definition technition and %50 of the TV's that I connect the HDMI to will not receive the signal.One trick that I have found that works is to make sure you have a picture on the RGB then connect the HDMI.Once you have these connected ,turn your TV off and unplug the power cord from the DVR for 30 sec then plug the DVR in and wait 5 minutes for it to power up then turn your TV on and switch to your HDMI input.This method sometimes works to "Jumpstart" the HDMI input on the TV .There is no guarantee that this will work but is sounds like for now this is your only option,GOOD LUCK.
