Rheilweil (talk) 21:44, 22 November 2007 (UTC) I have a Sony KP65XBR10W HD Ready TV. It does not have DVI or HDMI connections. It does have HD + VD (or R,G,B) connection. What does this mean? How do I connect to the HD cable box of it only has component, RF and HDMI connections?

Component video jack.jpg Your tv set is HD Ready, since it has YCbCr analogue inputs (See picture above) ([YCbCR], YCbCR). Connect your tv via standard component cables. Thewikipedian (talk) 16:33, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Accepted video formats are reproduced without distortion[edit]

What does that mean? JayKeaton (talk) 17:08, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

I'd like to ask this one too - since a HD Ready 1080p screen has to accept lower resolution signals including 720p and 576i, it cannot reproduce those without scaling, so surely this is either mis-stated (i.e. it should be 1080p video signals are reproduced without distortion) or factually inaccurate? Choddo (talk) 15:34, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
I guess it relates to picture proportions, i.e. there must be a mode that does not scale input signal to fit the whole viewable area, i.e. "zoom" 4:3 STDV picture to fit the 16:9 screen using some non-linear transform. --188.123.231.4 (talk) 10:17, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

HD Ready - well almost[edit]

My mum bought two TVs 3 years ago. Both were advertised as HD Ready. Both support 1080p. The TV that has a sticker on it saying "Futureproof for HDTV" doesn't have an HDMI socket, whilst the other TV does. My new HD cable tv receiver has hdmi out and only a optical audio out. The DVI socket doesn't translate the audio from the signal cable and the instructions suggest using analogue RCA cables from the receiver (which don't exist) to the TV. Is there a legal definition for what "HD Ready" is?

I mean, this TV cost a lot of money and when future-proof doesn't mean at least 3 years it reminds me of using the term "guaranteed" to sell those 100% capital guaranteed investments that turned out to only be guaranteed as long as certain investment banks didn't go bankrupt.--81.129.143.235 (talk) 20:52, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

HD TV logo and HD TV 1080p logo requirements[edit]

Please do not combine HD TV requirements with HD TV 1080p requirements because

  1. HD TV logo includes set top boxes and integrated television sets;
  2. HD TV 1080p logo only includes integrated television sets.

See excerpts from the relevant license agreements below. --Dmitry (talkcontibs) 08:16, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

I have added direct links to relevant licensing agreements, except the HD ready agreement which is only available in the restricted member area for some reason, and also clarified the wording to avoid further confusion. You could have saved 1.5 hours of my time if you double-checked your edits with relevant licensing agreements in the first place. --Dmitry (talkcontibs) 12:58, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
