An LCD/DVD combo like the Toshiba 26LV47 makes a terrific bedroom TV. By combining a top-notch LCD HDTV with an "upconverting" DVD player, this two-in-one design reduces cable clutter and provides a complete DVD viewing system you can easily move from room to room.

Crisp, clear pictures, no matter what you're watching
High-definition broadcasts look pinpoint-sharp and clear on this set's high-resolution screen. The built-in tuner can pull in both regular (analog) and digital over-the-air broadcasts — these signals are free, you just need to connect an antenna to get them. It will probably be several years before we can count on seeing everything in HD, but until then, Toshiba's advanced video processing makes standard-definition video very watchable.

Built-in DVD player, plus inputs for your other sources
An array of inputs makes it easy to expand your viewing options by plugging in an HD satellite receiver or video game console. With three HDMI inputs and a component video input, this set won't be left behind as we move further into the high-definition era. There's even a PC input so you can use it as a computer monitor.

The 26LV47's side-loading DVD player can play your music CDs, too. The bottom-mounted speaker system helps minimize cabinet width while still pumping out potent sound. These built-in speakers are perfect for casual listening, and whenever you want to crank up the volume, just connect the TV's audio output to your stereo or home theater system. The well-designed remote control puts both TV and disc playback controls at your fingertips.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Top notch TV, as advertised. and a perfect size for the study. Excellent picture, love the ease of using the DVD, and the controls/menu are user friendly.



    Great Picture

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The Toshiba name speaks for itself. The picture connected to Verizon FIOS is outstanding. The built in DVD player is easy and works flawlessly. The few extra dollars is well worth what you get.



    26" Toshiba with onboard DVD

    Troy from Midwest on 11/27/2007

    Nice, feature rich lcd tv. I was coming off of a bad experience with a cheap box-store lcd so this one is a welcome change. Great picture, though the viewing angle is not as broad as the junker I had previously. My only other minor complaint is that the navigation options of the DVD player aren't the best. The buttons on that part of the remote are also a little small. (Yes, I'm entering the age of reading glasses.) Generally, it's a great set. Crutchfield always does a great job of stearing me to the right product, and this is no exception. I love the micro-adjustable volume and the fact that the graphics on-screen (channel numbers, etc.) are big enough to easily see.

    TV Features

    HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

    PixelPure 3G 14-Bit Digital Video Processing: Toshiba's 3rd generation PixelPure video processing system uses a 14-bit video DAC and constantly monitors changes in signal quality, content, and movement to enhance sharpness, contrast, and color reproduction. This advanced third-generation digital video processing system runs at a fast 333Mhz and is capable of producing 4,096 levels of gradation (16 times greater than a standard 8-bit processor) for a smooth, natural-looking picture without image banding.

    DynaLight Dynamic Back-Light Control: Toshiba's DynaLight Technology monitors the brightness level of each video frame, and automatically adjusts the backlight intensity based on the image content. Precise signal analysis offers 256 levels of backlight intensity. This creates dynamic contrast up to 5X that of the original panel contrast, resulting in a deeper black level that increases detail and depth, even in low light environments.

    Native Resolution: The 26HL47 displays all inputs at a resolution of 720p (1366 x 768). The HDMI inputs will accept 1080p, 1080/24p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i and VGA signals while the component video inputs will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i.

    CableClear DNR: Designed to optimize poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable, this noise reduction system eliminates video noise ("snow") for a clean crisp image. This system detects the quality of the incoming video signal, and automatically applies the needed amount of video optimization.

    Picture Size: When viewing a source, you can choose one of the following picture sizes:

    • Natural: image is displayed close to its originally formatted proportion
    • TheaterWide 1: the picture is non-uniformly enlarged; the center of the picture remains close to its true proportion, but the left and right edges are stretched wider to fill the screen, used primarily with a 4:3 source
    • TheaterWide 2: entire picture is uniformly enlarged, used primarily with a letter box source
    • TheaterWide 3: picture is non-uniformly enlarged; the picture is stretched wider to fill the width of the screen and stretched slightly taller, used primarily with letter box programs with subtitles
    • Full: mainly designed for receiving a squeezed 4:3 signal (a 480i or 480p16:9 program squeezed into a 4:3 transmission), the picture is stretched wider to fill the screen, but not taller, none of the picture is hidden
    • 4:3 HD: provides a 4:3 aspect ratio of a 720p, 1080i, or 1080p signal; sidebars fill the empty vertical spaces while not distorting the picture from its original size
    • Native: when receiving a 720p, 1080i, or 1080p signal program, Native Mode restores the size of the picture by the 3-5% that is generally lost during the normal over-scanning that occurs on traditional sets; it also avoids unnecessary scaling of HD signals that can reduce overall image resolution and picture quality

    TheaterWide Scrolling: You can set separate scroll settings for the TheaterWide 2 and TheaterWide 3 modes for each input. You can adjust the scroll of the picture up and down as needed form -10 to +20.

    Auto Aspect Ratio: The Auto Aspect Ratio feature will automatically select the picture size when one of the following inputs sources is received - a 480i signal from the Video 1 or 2 inputs or the Component Video 1 or 2 inputs; a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or VGA signal from any of the HDMI inputs. The aspect ratio will automatically adjust as follows.

    Aspect Ratio Of Signal SourceAutomatic Aspect Size Selected
    4:3 normalNatural (with sidebars)
    4:3 letter boxTheaterWide 2
    16:9 fullFull

    Note: When the TV cannot identify the aspect ratio of the signal source, the aspect ratio of the TV will be adjusted to your Picture Size selection in the TV's menu

    Cinema Mode: When you view a DVD (3:2 pulldown processed) from a DVD player connected to the Video 1/2, Component Video 1/2, or any of the HDMI inputs on the TV, smoother motion can be obtained by setting the Cinema Mode to Film from Video.

    Picture Modes: You can select one of the following picture modes for each input:

    • Sports: bright and dynamic picture
    • Standard: standard picture setting
    • Movie: lower contrast for a darkened room
    • Preference: allows you to adjust and store contrast, back light, DynaLight, brightness, color, tint, and sharpness

    Color Temperature: You can change the quality of the picture by selecting from three preset color temperatures - Cool (blueish), Medium (neutral), or Warm (reddish). You can also adjust the levels of greens and blues in each preset temperature.

    Dynamic Contrast: When dynamic contrast is set to On, the TV will detect when changes in picture quality that affect the appearance of your contrast settings and adjust the video automatically.

    MPEG Noise Reduction: The MPEG noise reduction feature allows you to reduce visible interference caused by MPEG compression. You can choose High, Medium, Low, or Off.

    Static Gamma Adjustment: The Static Gamma feature allows you to adjust the levels of black in the picture. The adjustment range is with +/-5 from center.

    Game Mode: When playing a video game requiring split-second timing (high-action games, music creation, etc.), the Game Mode shortens the frame delays between the on-screen display and the input from the controller.

    Note: The Game Mode can only be used on the Video 1, Video 2, Component Video 1, Component Video 2, or HDMI inputs.

    Channel Browser: The Channel Browser allows you to browse and view inputs and channels by storing your recently viewed channels in channel history. You can surf back to channels you viewed prior to your current channel, and surf forward from previous channels up to your current channel. Up to 32 previously viewed channels can be stored in history. You can set a Home source for an Ant 1 channel or TV input.

    Favorite Browser: Within the Channel Browser you can preview preset Favorite Channels via thumbnails along the bottom of the screen.

    Channel Return: The Channel Return feature allows you to switch between two channels without entering an actual channel number each time.

    SurfLock: The SurfLock feature temporarily memorizes one channel under the Channel Return button, so you can return to that channel quickly from any other channel.

    Channel Label: A list of common channel labels for various channels such as ABC, CBS, etc. are programmed into the TV. You are able to view and assign these logos to your incoming stations. If the desired channel label is not provided, you can manually enter and edit labels using the TV's on-screen keyboard. Up to 128 channels can be labeled.

    Input Label: You can label each input according to the connected source. The preset list of labels includes Audio Receiver, Cable, Compact Disc, DTV, DVD, Game Console, HD-DVD, Laser Disc, Satellite/DSS, VCR, Video Recorder, Hide (so you don't have to toggle through an input you're not using). The default label is blank.

    Note: The PC input can only use the default "Blank" or "Hide" label.

    Closed Captions: The TVs closed caption mode has two options:

    • Captions: an on-screen display of the dialog, narration, and sound effects of TV programs and video that are closed captioned
    • Text: an on-screen display of information not related tot the current program, such as weather or stock data when provided by individual stations

    Digital CC: You can customize the closed caption display characteristics by changing the background color, text size, type, edge, and color.

    SoundStrip Speaker System:The SoundStrip Speaker System utilizes a thin-line speaker design with enhanced dynamic range. This eliminates the big round speakers, without losing any of the big home theater sound.

    Stable Sound: When the signal source is changed, this feature limits the highest volume level to prevent extreme changes in volume.

    SRS WOW: WOW is a special combination of SRS Labs audio technologies that creates a surround sound experience with deep, rich bass from stereo sound sources, making the TV audio sound fuller, richer, and wider. WOW consists of these three features:

    • SRS 3D: turns on/off the surround sound effect
    • FOCUS: turns on/off the vocal emphasis effect
    • TruBass: selects the desired bass expansion level (High, Low, or Off)

    Audio Adjustment: You can adjust the audio quality by adjusting the TV's bass, treble, and balance.

    Dolby Digital Dynamic Range Control: This dynamic range control feature causes the ATSC dynamic range to be further compressed, allowing you to switch from ATSC to analog broadcast at the same dynamic range.

    Mute: The TV mutes the volume half-way when the Mute button is pressed once on the remote; when pressed a second time the TV will mute the volume completely and when pressed a third time the volume will resume as normal.

    Digital Audio Selector: You can use the TV's Digital Audio Selector to conveniently switch between audio tracks on a digital channel for those digital channels with multiple audio tracks.

    Sleep Timer: The sleep timer switches the television off after a specified amount of time. The sleep timer can be adjusted from 10 minutes to 3 hours in 10-minute increments.

    Lock System: The TV's Lock Menu includes ratings blocking, channel blocking, input locking, and a control panel lock which are all protected by the same user customized 4 digit code.

    Last Mode Memory: If the power is cut off while you are viewing the TV, the Last Mode Memory feature automatically turns on the TV when the power is re-supplied.

    Note: You should unplug the TV's power cord if it is probable that you will be away from the TV for an extended period of time after the power is restored.

    Auto Power Off: In ANT mode the TV will automatically turn itself off after approximately 15 minutes if it is turned to a vacant channel or a station that completes it broadcast for the day.
