Will you be ready when the nation switches to digital TV broadcasts in 2009? Now is an excellent time to replace your old analog TV with an HDTV like the Westinghouse LTV-32w6. Its 32" screen delivers bright, high-definition pictures with vibrant colors. This flat-panel LCD works great as the centerpiece of a modest home theater, and it makes a fantastic bedroom TV, too.

Built-in tuners for over-the-air and cable TV signals
The built-in tuner receives both digital and analog over-the-air broadcasts from your local stations. You can keep enjoying non-digital programs the same as always until the nationwide switchover in 2009, but you'll be amazed by the crystal-clear images that digital broadcasts deliver. Cable TV subscribers can use this set's "QAM" tuner to watch unscrambled cable channels — even some HD channels, where available.

Inputs for all your components, old and new
The LTV-32w6 includes composite and S-video jacks for your non-HD components like VCRs and camcorders. You'll also find HDMI and component video inputs for connecting the latest satellite HD receivers, video game consoles, and "upconverting" DVD players. This versatile TV also has a standard PC input, so you can work and play on one screen.

Tuners: The TV has built-in ATSC/NTSC/ClearQAM tuners for standard and high-definition channels from over-the-air and cable.

AutoSource: This TV features AutoSource--automatic source detection and switching. When you power on the source you want to use, the TV will sense a signal and automatically switch to that input. AutoSource switching can be turned on or off in the menu.

Contrast Ratio: This TV has a 1000:1 contrast ratio giving you excellent brightness and contrast for superior picture and detail from both PC and TV images.

Picture Settings: You can select and adjust the settings for Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Hue, Sharpness, and Backlight. You can reset picture setting to factory defaults at any time.

  • Standard: conventional format used for viewing 4:3 programs in their normal format

  • Fill: format that horizontally stretches 4:3 pictures to the edge of the screen

Input Labels: You can add a customized label associated for each input. Available labels include: TV, Cable,  DTV, DVD, Game, HiDef, PC, Sat, STB, or VCR. You can also program the TV to skip a particular input if no component is connected to it.

Favorite Channels: You can store your three favorite channels on the "A", "B", and "C" buttons on the remote for instant access.

PC-Capable: This unit has a 15-pin D-Sub (RGB) input that allows you to use it as a high-resolution computer monitor. An output setting of 1360 x 768 @60Hz is recommended. Also supported outputs include: 1280 x 720 (60Hz), 1024 x 768 (60Hz), 720 x 400, and 640 x 480. A 3.5mm minijack is supplied for the audio connection.

Power Mode: There are two Power Modes for Standby Power: Normal, which requires more power (up to 17W, typical), but gives you a picture quicker when you turn on the TV; or E.Saver (Energy Saver), which requires less power (less than 1 watt, typical), but takes longer to come on.

Remote Control: The supplied remote is pre-programmed to operate this unit only.

Inputs and Outputs Notes

SpineDesign and Waterfall Design: The TVs inputs and outputs are mounted on the side of a "spine" that runs vertically along the back of the TV. The side-facing connectors allow for easy access. The connecting cables cascade like a "waterfall", making it easy to keep your cables organized.

  • HDMI: The HDMI input can be used to connect a DVD player, Game console, HDTV or Satellite Set-top box with an HDMI output. The HDMI input can also be used to connect a device with a DVI output (a DVI-to-HDMI adapter cable is necessary). If a DVI-equipped device is used, separate audio cables will also be needed from the device to the provided RCA stereo audio jacks. No audio cables are needed for an HDMI-equipped device. The HDMI jacks will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.
  • Component Video: The two component video inputs can be used to connect a DVD player, Game Console, HDTV or Satellite Set-top box with a component video output. Separate RCA stereo audio inputs are provided. The Component Video jacks will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.
  • Video/S-Video: One A/V device can be connected to the TV using either a composite or S-Video cable. You cannot use both composite and S-Video at the same time. Separate RCA stereo audio inputs are provided.

PC: This input consists of a stereo mini-jack and an analog RGB (D-Sub 15-pin) jack. This jack allows you to connect a personal computer with a D-Sub 15-pin output. When using the RGB (D-Sub 15-pin) jack, you must use the 3.5mm minijack input for your audio connection.

Bang for the buck

Written By Steve, Augusta, GA on Thursday, November 08, 2007

I bought this TV after ordering and returning the Toshiba 26HL67 26" and not really being all that pleased with it's size or picture quality. I got his unit based off other reviews I found, and they were right. This is a great tv for the money. You can't beat it. The QAM actually picks up more channels on the Westinghouse than the Toshiba's QAM did.

I have a Panasonic 50" plasma in the living room to compare with and the Westinghouse is much is only a few notches down from it based on picture quality. Way better than the more expensive and smaller Toshiba. The Westinghouse is PERFECT for the bedroom!

The only thing that this TV lacks is some of the features that the more expensive units, i.e. favorites browser, and SmartVolume control. If you can live without these features, get this TV
