No, you do not need convert box if your TV says HD on it!

I have a mitubishi ws-55313 with a monitor link DVI connection and I have tried to convert that to hdmi for a cable DVR but it doesn't work any ideas?


The monitor link is not a standard DVI connection, it was used to connect a Mitsubishi HD set top box. You can connect your cable DVR using component video cables and get HD that way, up to 1080i but not 1080p

Do you have to add a converter box to receive free


You will need a converter box or a separate tuner. The TV has an NTSC (analog) tuner.

I hope this helps.

(the $40 boxes that are available are mostly SD. You should check the specs if you want a HD tuner.)

I would suggest to leave your directtv hd/dvr box connected the way It is.
The HD Colorstream 1input on your TV should work just fine.
This TV does not have an HDMI input but you can buy an adapter and connect to DVI/HDCP IN and that might be able to get 1080i video resolution on your TV.

The TV most likely will have component and a DVI connector on it if it doesn't have a HDMI connector. If the Blu-ray player has component connectors on it use them as they will give you up to a 1080i picture which is all this model of Hitachi supports anyway. If the player doesn't have component connections then you can get a HDMI to DVI converter cable so you can connect it to your TV. You will need a cable that looks like this...

Digital TV Ready?


I believe you need a converter box. Im pretty sure this unit only has a NTSC Tuner. Recieving HD would be via Componet Inputs or DVI. If a HDMI Input is available you could use it too but I think it only has a DVI connector.
Hope this helps,

Hitachi 51SWX20B is this TV HD ready?


In answer to your question, you have an HD TV Monitor, which means that your television is capable of viewing high definition, but does not have an HD tuner. You will need a separate tuner or in the case of cable, a HD cable box. These are the only options that you have for viewing high definition channels.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
