Hi, my Phillips was hooked up and working fine directly to the DISH receiver using the HDMI 1. I moved and had to put the DISH receiver in another room and ran a coax cable to where the TV is now using the ANT in spot. I select TV as the source and choose channel 60 and no signal. I hooked up another TV and it works OK. Any ideas?

My Denon receiver, mounted in another room, has HDMI inputs from my DVD player and cable TV. Signal goes from receiver through HDMI into a signal transmitter and then to the TV via Cat 5 data cable and signal receiver. The signal frequently drops out, and especially if any light switches are turned on/off. Is it likely the problem is the result of an electrical wiring problem, or could it be a problem with the Denon receiver itself?


It would seem that the transmitter and/or the receiver may be causing all the fuss...or the cat 5 is having issues...the cat5 cable may have some defect...try using another cat 5(even if it's 6ft long,move receiver closer to tv/dvd and use transmitte ... Flat Panel Televisions

Dvd connection we have our direct tv cables hooked up correctly we believe, because we get the signal just fine. When hooking up the A/V cables from the DVD player to the other ports available however, it doesnt pick up the signal after we change the Source on the TV. So basically, everytime we want to watch a dvd, I have to unhook the direct tv a/v cables and hook up the dvd av cables in the same ports. It works just fine then. But we would love to not have to go thru that process everytime.

My wt-46809 Still has a good picture. It receives its signal from an HD converter box from Time Warner Cable. The other inputs on the tv however don't seem to work. I can't use my DVD or hook up any game systems through the various inputs. In addition, while the HD channels (1000 and up) work, channels 1-999 don't project a picture (only audio). I've never added any HD retrofit to the set, so I'm not sure if true HD is being projected or if the picture is just very good digitally clear SD.

Hi! I have a Sharp LC-37D7U and my cable company just started switching to digital at the rate of 20 or so channels per month. I was able to receive analog cable or digital cable through my analog cable receptacle on the TV, but only one or the other. So I put a signal splitter on the cable coming into the house and ran one line to each input and then it worked perfectly. I turned off the set and went to bed. Today I get no digital signal, only the signals from the remaining analog channels.


No it's not your TV set maybe you're cable company is not feeding the digital signal or having technical adjustment/problem you can inquire from them about the digital signal they are providing...and let me know it so we can proceed to other steps.. ... Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

We can hear sound but no picture - We put in a DVD to make sure it wasn't the TV and we were able to watch a DVD. The cable is hooked up correctly and the TV is on the correct channel.
