Question about NEC Televison & Video
SOURCE: This TV won't support 1080!
I have this same TV, and cable from Comcast (which uses the same Motorola Box as Time Warner). Are you using component output from you CATV box, or HDMI to DVI. Your TV has two component inputs and one DVI input, but no HDMI input directly. If you use component, you must do two things. 1. The TV is auto-sensing as to the input signal, and will work with 1080i, 720p, 480p or 480i. Make sure you have a good grade component cable. 2. On your CATV box, turn the power off with the remote, then within 3 seconds press 'MENU'. This will give you a screen where you can specify the output from your CATV. I suggest 1080i, but 720p works fine, too. If you are using the DVI input, then you must be using an HDMI to DVI converter cable or adapter. To make this work -- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT -- you must set the CATV box to HDMI output, not DVI. Use the same process as described above, but make sure your HDMI/DVI cable is connected, and you have selected the DVI input on the TV. Otherwise, you won't get the proper menu on the CATV box. BTW, the prior suggestion is not the problem -- low signal from the cable company would cause the picture to pixelate, but not lose sync. However, both problems COULD be caused by a defective CATV box. If they haven't already replaced the CATV box, tell them to do so immediately or you will call DIRECTV!!

We have Comcast and we plugged the cable straight into our Bravia, searched for Digital Channels and it found 131. We actually get all the HD channels that we had using the box, plus a few more. It's worth a try.

Not sure if I just got lucky or if the problem is solved..I hooked up my Sharp Aquos LC-32D64U the other night and I had the blue audio box pop up. Mine was only in Mono and would not switch to Stereo...Well, Local cable company is of of Hi-Def boxes but I thought what if my Digital box is bad/old or has some sort of problem. I went down to comcast cable company switched to a different digitial box..came home, hooked it up and so far no blue audio box, plus now it shows that it's in stereo..good luck

I had the same problem, so I followed these steps and it worked!
1) Turn on TV.
2) On the remote control, press TV once (it will blink once). Then press and hold SETUP until the TV key blinks twice.
3) Enter 9 9 1, (the TV key will blink twice).
4) Aim the remote control at the TV & press POWER once.
5) Press & release the CH+ key continously (you may need to press it more than 50 times!), then stop when the TV turns off.
6) Press POWER. The TV should turn on, then immediately, press SETUP to lock in the code.

Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see you want to have your son's recordings on his TV. If you will press the buttons of Menu-8-5 and select Disable and select Done, if your son's TV will not record on his TV please reset the receiver and allow it to power back up. After it has finished acquiring the signal and the Program Guide please try to set a recording for his TV, If the problem still persist please e-mail me at [email protected] and I will assist you further.
