480i is displayed on the tv even when I play my Sony BluRay
I have my new Sony BluRay player hooked up to my Toshiba 62HM95 via a HDMI Cable. However when I hit display for the tv, it reads 480i on the bottom left corner. How can I change this to read 1080p or 1080i. I used all the settings and nick naks and nothing. When I watch Directv with my HD receiver, it displays 1080p is this automatic?

How are you connecting it to your computer? I ask because my 1st thought would be that if it is by way of HDMI the problem is probably because your computers HDMI is for picture & audio out not in. the other piece of info needed is, are you using a proper blueray player that you would typically hook up to a TV or just a bluray disk drive that you connect via USB to burn and play disks.
Roku only supports 720P and 1080P along with the Standard Definition. If your TV only supports 720i, then the Roku won't be able to display 720i but instead 480i which is the standard display that Roku can do on a TV that doesn't support 720p or 1080p
It sounds like the Bluray player may be outputting the signal at a higher resolution than the TV supports.
If the Bluray player has a scart or composite connection, connect with those first, and adjust its settings to output a lower resolution.
Then reconnect the HDMI.
Hope this works for you.
hi i had similar problem, you need to change the settings in the bluray player output to hdmi or auto in other to get sound after the settings turn everything off even from the socket and then turn it back on for that setting to take effect. try this
Try hooking the Panasonic up straight to the tv without going through the receiver. If it displays a picture its obviously not the blu-ray player. May also be a problem with the HDMI cable itself. Hope this helps.
I called toshiba (the television manufacturer) and they told me that the tv recognized the devices and then adjusts to the resolution according to the device of where its receiving the signal (HDMI).In this case my blu ray was not set to the 1080i resolution. Yesterday I set it up and BAM there it was.
I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.
So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.
