480/720/1080 is a function of the XBOX not the TV. The TV cannot change the resolution. The resolution indication that shows on the TV is only what it is recieving, not what it is showing, You need to check the XBox or whatever you are using.
The Green Line on the other hand is a defect and if the TV is in warranty you should make them fix it!!! That is unless this green line only appears with a single source....it should show ALL the time.

How do I change my resolution on my 32 inch flat screen from 480 to 720


Assuming your TV will support 720p signals, check how you have the TV connected to the Playstation 3. Change your video cable to component video or HDMI, depending on the TV. (The Composite input is limited to 480i (SD) pictures. The same is true for a SCART connection.) Put the TV to the new input by pressing the Input Source button on the TV Remote or through the menu depending on your TV.

You may have to do the first of these steps before changing your cables and the TV input source (I'm not sure). On the Playstation, select Settings and then Display Settings.Choose your video output (component or HDMI). Next select all resolution that the TV can use. (Most 32" TVs only do 720p. There are some that can do 1080i or 1080p.) Confirm the video connection works. Then Save your settings.

For screen captures of the steps, see: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/3_15/settings/videooutput.html . You should always turn off the TV and the Playstation before swapping the cables. (So you may need to stop and save after setting the output to component video. Then return to the Display Settings menu.)

I hope this helps.

I want to change from 480 resolutions to 720 resolutions using my remote control


Unfortunately the television autodetects resolution and cannot be changed from the remote. The television will need a 720 signal coming in, in order to display in 720 (like an HD source, such as a PS3, XBOX, Blu-ray player, HD Cable, etc..)
Hopefully this clarifies things.
Thank you.

How do I get from 480 to 1080p on my tv? I have an HD box on my vizio 42 inch tv but my channels are still showing 480?


1080P is a quality you'll only get with a blue ray quality video. Therefore, you won't get 1080P on cable tv. If your cable provider has HD channels available, you'll be able to get 720 or 1080i quality video (on those channels only). For the best quality, make sure you are using an HDMI cable. Just be sure your cable box supports an HDMI output. Your Vizio definately supports that type of input. If you have a PS3 or alternative blue ray player, you'll be able to watch 1080P.

TH-42PX60U All output ports works but HDMI ports


Problem is with your ISP/Cable Company accepting the installation as one with HD clients, which while
not necessarily costing you more, must be specified to the cable box by your installer.

Make the call.

Screen is blank after (accidently) setting HD Res from 480 to 720


Followed the manual to return to the Default settings, using the remote "in the blind" pressing the arrow and Enter buttons, hoping I hit the right menu button. I did. Case solved. Thanks

Trying to make DVR work after 2-17-09


I have been able to record down converted HDTV shows on my Panasonic DMR-EH50 recorder directly to the unit's hard drive and/or directly to a blank DVD-R disc.

I do not know of any DTV converter box that can provide the proper codes to the Panasonic DMR-EH50 to allow recording and scheduling of shows using the unit's built in TV Guide menuing functions (the program recording codes are essentially VCR Plus codes in the USA and VCR Video codes in the UK, and this technology was previously owned by TV Guide/Gemstar but was purchased by Macrovision within the past couple of years.)

When the DMR-EH50 is hooked up to standard RG-59/U coaxial TV cable, the cable company provides the specific VCR Plus recording codes, as well as auto setting the time and date information required for the TV Guide recording schedule menus. The VCR Plus recording codes are sent via the cable company through the coaxial cable to the end consumer's recording device. Since Gemstar's VCR-Plus patents are now owned by Macrovision, I am not sure of how this works (or will work) for non-cable/non-satellite customers or if such codes will be made available by Macrovision to record shows when one receives HDTV signals (or down converted DTV signals) from an over-the-air antenna.

Though the DMR-EH50 recorder can only record at Standard Definition (SD) broadcast resolutions, I connect the DMR-EH50 to my High Definition TV using the three progressive scan YPBPR output cables and switch my HD-TV into the YPBPR mode when I want to watch shows from the DMR-EH50.

YPBPR are the analog video signals carried by three color coded component video cables. The green cable carries the Y signal; the blue cable carries the PB signal; and the red cable carries the PR signal. The added benefit of using the YPBPR hookup is that you can 'up convert' a standard DVD disc (non HD Blu-Ray disc) in progressive scan mode to somethin akin to 720p resolution using the DM-EH50 (or any other progressive scan DVD player) to get a better quality image on your HD-TV.

Visually speaking, the same appears to hold true for playback of programs recorded on the DMR-EH50's hard drive even though down converted via the DTV converter box, and when played back on an HD-TV using the YPBPR progressive scan cabling hookup.

I also been able to successfully record programs from the DTV converter box to the DMR-EH50 recorder in both 16:9 wide screen and 4:3 normal aspect ratios, but again only in Standard Definition quality.

For NTSC and PAL formats, the correct aspect ratios for any particular TV (the rectangular height and width of your output resolution for a TV screen) can usually be setup correctly for most any DTV converter box by going carefully through the menus on the converter box. Though the converted DTV often will yield 'better looking TV' than cable, it's certainly not high definition however, as the purpose of any DTV converter box is * not * to yield a High Definition digital TV signal but a lower quality Standard Definition signal for viewing on older SD-TVs.

We must remember that what is happening here is that (by NTSC USA standards), we are transcoding (i.e., down converting) an over the air 1920 x 1080p (progressive scan) High Definition digital broadcast signal, captured by your over the air antenna, back to a Standard Definition 720 x 480 resolution analog broadcast signal (the 720 x 480 resolution is a 4:3 aspect ratio.)

Hope this helps a little -
