HD/Anolog Sync problems

I lost my HD stations a while back. It was as if the HD tuner went bad or HD cable box (comcast) went bad. Cable Co. came out and replaced the box and changed the connections to the Home theater system(reciver)the wrong way. I corrected the wiring but then lost all the anolog channels. A friend who installs High End Home Theater systems says he is almost positive its the HD/anolog not Syncronizing. He has seen it before but does not repair TVs and does not think it is fixable. Does anyone have any info or fix on this type of problem.

If you play a DVD through the A/V jacks do you get a good picture? If so, could you try your cable box on a friends TV to make sure it's not the box or the way it is connected to the TV? While searching for answers, I came upon a review on ( which has been a pretty reliable source for quality related issues with consumer electronics products and found this hands on experience from a reviewer: Well, I'll start off by saying this tv has a relatively decent picture aside from some issues with the horizontal and vertical positioning, and it's price is very competitive with other tv's this size, but as the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for". I hate talking bad about peoples products, but I gave this one many chances. I originally bought a 55PP9352 but when I hooked up my DVD player in progressive mode, the picture was off center. I then changed that out for a 60PP9352, and low and behold, the same problem. The best way to notice was going through the THX optimizer setup on THX mastered DVD's. When you got to the aspect ratio screen the outline boxes were off the screen on the bottom and right. I even tried different DVD players and still the same problem. Also, this tv had a power board issue. It would very quickly turn off and back on while you were watching it. I gave it one more chance and swapped it out for another 60PP9352. Well Here again, I have the off-centered picture in progressive mode. I also found out that the retailer had the same power issue with another one of the same tv's sold to a different consumer. They are picking up this tv next week! Philips customer service seems to have some issues also. I had a question about the HD capabilities of this unit, and no matter what method of contact I tried, I kept getting the "run around" and even got hung up on. My question was "I know that inputs 4 and 5 support HD signals of 480p and 1080i, but what will the tv do when a 720p signal is introduced? Will the signal be upconverted, downconverted, or even be displayed at all?" Nobody seemed to know what I was talking about. I actually called 5 times, emailed 3 times, and tried online chat support, and finally I got an answer. It was "720p is not supported". They still didn't answer my question if it would be upconverted, downconverted, or even displayed. I have limited off air HDTV where I'm at. ABC doesn't broadcast here yet, but the majority of their HD broadcasting is in 720p, so when they do finally get here, I want a tv that will display the broadcast signal. Also X-box has a lot of HD games that are in 720p format. I think Philips needs to catch up with the times. Number 5 input is HD capable, but it doesn't even have component cable connections for it. It only has a 15 pin VGA style input like a computer, but then they recommend it not to be used for a computer monitor connection. I guess it's my own fault for not researching more about the capabilities of this tv, but still I think Philips has some serious issues they need to work on if they are going to stay competitive with the new upcoming technologies. I'm left with one question, What ever happen to the "Philips Magnavox" name? It's just "Philips" now. Did the quality leave with the "Magnavox" name? So there you have it. Most HDTV programming is in the 720p mode. Philips used to be a good name brand to choose. Alas times change.

What kind of cable to run for HD update?

I ran regular RG6 through my house and both DirecTV and Comcast work just fine. Longest run I have from source to box is about 50' if that factors into your planning.

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.


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


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

To get HD channel form your cable TV without using the cable provider HD tuner box but using your TV Clear QAM tuner (your TV has Clear QAM tuner, my TV also has QAM tuner so I do not have to use the cabel box, but my COMCAST does not provide may Clear QAM signals like they use to) to get the unscrambled HD, the cable provider must provide those unscrambled Clear QAMsignals for your TV to pick up the signalS.

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's

Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

If i buy a full hd tv,instead of hd ready,can i view HD PROGAMS from outdoor arial without anymore setup. thank you A R SHEARING.

You do not want to buy HD ready (ready means it will accept HD sources), Ful HD TV will have ATSC digital tuner for off the air signal, you will want it to have QAM tuner also so if you decide to get cable, you can get unencryped HD programs without using the cable box (that is what I am using with my Entended BASIC Comcast cable without using/renting their box, Comcast gives three free boxes, then you have to rent the rest if you have more than 3 TVs at about $7 a month).

Hdtv qam tuner

More often than not the problem is with the Cable co. They ALWAYS blame the tv. I have had many many problems with the signal quality coming from that co. Here is the most likley cause. The cable signal is probably very Weak. This can be caused by a weak signal coming from the cabls co. or a bad cable inside your home. The age of the cable can effect the signal quality.Note: The cable co is only required to provide a Digital signal. Some companies allow free HD signals and some charge for that signal. The correct approach to this issue is to get with the Cox and ask the if they provide free Hd channels without a box. If they say no then you will have to get a HD cable box to watch HD programs. Themn if they say yes then you need to ask them to send out a tech and test the signal coming from the Head End all the way to your set. If the signal flucuates then you will get inconsistant scanning results.
