Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
Had a power outage. power was off for 30 hours. tv is plugged into a surge protector. directv reciever and bluray player is plugged into a different surgeprotector.
Rostit's advice is correct. // If you do not have another TV, trying plugging in your Satellite receiver using ''Composite'' (_not_ ''RCA'') cables. You will get 720P video quality with that type of connection. Most people cannot tell the difference between 1080P and 720P. Furthermore, Cable and Satellite receivers only give you a 720P signal anyway. It is your DVD and/or BlueRay players that are giving your ''true'' 1080P signals. They too will (usually) work with a ''Composite'' connection. It depends on how many ''Composite'' connections your TV will accept. At the very least, you should be able to connect your Satellite receiver to the TV via Composite cables. (And I would bet real money you will be happy with the quality of the picture on your TV... So much so that you'll just leave it that way rather than buy a new TV). Ps... You can also buy a box that allows you to plug in several devices via composite cables, and then only one composite cable set needs to go to the TV, and then you use the box (which even has a remote) to switch between devices. // Best of luck... -Gregg

Surge protectors do not work very well. They dont really stop mildly high voltages. If you can plug the Directv receiver into another TV and it works, then you have a bad digital board in your TV.
