If you use the hdmi input from your cable box and select either the HDMI1 or HDMI2 input setting it should automatically change based on the channel transmission resolution.

All this is currently controlled by the cable providers set top boxes, and depends on whether you have purchse the Hi-Def programming packages.

Hope this helps you.

You did not give your model number of receiver. Some of the ones from 2007 or so have a switch on the back for video resolution, 480i, 480p 720p 1080i so set this switch to 480i.

720p is putting out signal of 480i or p only


Your Tv has its own settings for high definition.

Look in your manual for appearance setting and turn the tv to 720p high definition.

That should be enough. OH! And make sure your PS3 is set for HD output too! My HD tv downconverts occasionally when the Uverse box shuts off and defaults to low def output.

I have a wd-52525 mitsubishi and it is supossed to be 720p but when I turn it on it says its 480i. What part of the tv makes it 720p or 1080p? Please help.......Thanks Paul


You will have to use component inputs for above 480i, and use the FORMAT key on your remote control unit (lower panel in center) to change to whatever you want for resolution. Be sure you have your signal input set to one of the Component inputs via Setup or Net Command (or use Devices on the remote)

Picture shifts to left


I had the offset left issue for non-HD channels with my Panasonic 42" plasma, using Comcast HD cable box. Went into the configuration menu (to get there with the newer Comcast boxes, you have to turn the box off, then hit the menu button on the box immediately after). You will see on the menu a resolution (probably says 1080i), then below it a "4:3 override". Our said 480i. When I changed it to "none", so that it stayed 1080i, it worked! It also works by selecting 480p, but then the picture is stretched.
