Picture quality using Flat Panel TV with old RCA receiver
Posted 17 January 2011 - 04:48 AM
I recently got a second LD 26inch flat panel to use beside the old box but an using an antenna to get local Hi Def. Works great.
I recently replaced the big box with another LG 26 flat screen. I'm using this setup thru a DVD/VCR combo.
I also have a DVR in another location connected directly to a 32 inch LG.
I get a great picture here but the new one connected thru the combo using the 8 years old RCA is kind of fuzzy. (I've made several adjustments to the LG but no improvement)
Do you all think the problem lies with the old RCA receiver or the combo, which is new, or a combination of the two?
Would a new standard Directv receiver to replace the RCA help?
I'm thinking of switching the two LGs which are beside each other to see if it might be the TV that is the problem but I don't think so.

Might as well go with an HD model.

Anyway, if you get a set of composite video cables
and hook the sat receiver directly to the TV's Video inputs, you're going to get about as good of picture quality as is going to be possible from DirecTV using an SD receiver (a new SD receiver won't look any better). If you can live with that, great. If not, it's time for HD.

I had been using RCA cables but not good ones. I replaced them and saw a good improvement.

If so, then you need a DirecTV HD receiver.
This would require a new DirecTV dish as well.
Call DirecTV and see what kind of deals they can offer you!
