42 inch TV Purchased this tv as 42 inch when you take out box looks much smaller. 24 July 2014
short life tv When I bought this hitachi tv I was so happy that I got a bargain but after one month picture gone so I took back to Argos. They said screen damage from insid so its accidental damage & I have to pay for repair. I'm not happy with poor quality product because outside screen got few unnoticeable minor scratches but inside screen got damage some how. I didn't bother to repair & I would prefer to buy some other brand. 24 July 2014

Answer: 
There is no such thing as a digital aerial. Radio frequencies have nothing to do with digital or analogue. Your aerial already receives the digital and analogue signal, as they are radio frequency signals.

The 'idea' of a digital aerial is marketing speak to try to get uninformed people to buy overpriced aerials that they don't need.

Answer: 
Hi,

A Skype camera (sold separately) is required to get the full benefit of Skype?s features. If you do not already have one, you will need to purchase a camera (compatible with Vesca100) to get the full benefits of Skype.

Skype Camera 109/2574 is compatible with Hitachi TV's.
