Television I was very happy with this t.v and the excellent help from the lovely young lady , only gripe is that the next week the price reduced by £30 ! 09 September 2014
Looks great, great visuals too. 04 September 2014
brilliant buy. this tv has everything i wanted from a H.D tv, and it was excellent value. 02 September 2014
Great TV If you are looking for a good screen, sound and picture then this TV is perfect, however if your are looking for a modern smart tv I wouldn't recommended, you cannot add additional apps and the only one's I can use are youtube and BBC I player, netflix etc are not available. Overall a great buy for a TV size upgrade 28 August 2014
Not bad for the money Good product but sound quality is a little tinny - May invest in a sound bar but overall a good product for the money paid 27 August 2014

Hi Freds,
This product does not have an optical output. Please use the 3.5mm headphone socket as the output to connect a soundbar.

No browser and the website that you have to use to register for facebook/twitter/flickr does not work at all. Apps have to be downloaded from the same site.

Answer: 
Hi Marcus,
I suggest checking the connection is enabled in the settings menu. You will have access to switch between a Lan connection and a wireless connection it is worth checking that the wireless connection has been enabled. You can also check the performance of the connection from the same menu.

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.

Hi jeff,
You will need to check what broadcast is transmitted in the region that you would like to use the product in and then check it against the specifications listed on page 27 of the manual (which can be viewed in the product listing alongside the additional images).

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.
