Summary: hey, the problems you are all having would be alleviated if you realized that hitachi sells an HDTV tuner box sperate from this display which allows it to act as a TV instead of just a display. This TV tuner has several additional HDMI inputs as well. I do not have this TV but have just ordered the 42" version and they discuss the TV tuner issue in those reviews - I recommend you look there.
Summary: I've had this product for a couple of months, and... meh, it's ok, but not great. Pros: It is super sleek and looks very nice. On-screen setup menu is fairly easy to navigate. Cons: Does not have a TV tuner built-in. Only has 2 inputs - a VGA connector, and a single HDMI connector. Picture quality is just ok, tried different settings and the image on my cheap Olevia HDTV is still better. It's expensive.
Summary: This monitor is absolutely amazing. Stunning color, ultra-thin, absolutely amazing video processor, and full HD. I have an Apple TV connected to it and love to watch the photos and video clips. If you have a cable box, you can watch cable on it too (the only item the other reviewer rated it low for, but it is obviously a monitor and not a TV as it doesn't have a channel changer). You will love this item!
Summary: I just bought this product and I was so excited to receive it today. Try to hook up but this TV has only HDMI input and I wasn't able to plug into my cable box. I went to store to find right cable and they found out that this is HDTV Monitors. Eventually I need to call cable company to get HDTV receiver which cost more than 100 bucks. You should named this product as TV MONITOR not just TV. need High Definition Multimedia interface which I didn't know. So disappointed...
Summary: I recently bought it for our living room & even without the auxiliary audio, the sound quality is superb. I thought since it is very slim that it would affect its image clarity & quality, but the Hitachi Ultravision proved me wrong. It may be a bit pricey but for what it is worth ... it is a delight to have it. Even my wife who was skeptical about it ... was blown away. It is a 'must have' even for a casual user like me.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Reduced Glare, Simple Controls
