Upgrading a Mitsubishi model WS-73903 projection tv to high def
I have a 10-year old Mitsubishi WS-73903 Projection television that is "HD ready." Mitsubishi tells me they no longer make the Mitsubishi-brand receiver that will allow my unit to upgrade to receive HDTV signals. The unit is in perfect working order so I do not want to replace it with a newer model at this time.
1. does anyone know where I can buy a receiver that will fill the bill?
2. if I subscribe to Direct TV will this replace the need to buy the special receiver?
3. what quality of HD can I expect to receive with my 10-year old unit?

If you are using a high def tv and u want to play with hi def graphics, u must put the switch on the xbox av/component leads to HDTV, otherwise,standard def will be used. Check the tv input by using a dvd player or another input source to confirm it works. Good Luck.
If you are using the component inputs it will select 1080i automatically IF that is what it is being sent. Make sure your device (cable/satellite receiver) is set to 1080i. The TV recognizes 480i, 480p(progressive scan DVD player) and 1080i. It DOES NOT recognize 720p. Since it has no HDMI or DVI input it can't do HD DVD or "upconvert" DVD but it does very nicely with 480p/progressive scan.
On any High Def TV, the reciever you need for this set, which does not have a HD receiver in it, is half the equation. Most HD channels have some HD content mixed with SD content on the same channel. SD content on HD signal from cable or satellite tends to be slightly blocky due to the native signal resolution and the resolution of HD (1080i/p or 720i/p).
