Direct TV says that they will offer 1080p quality. Need update

My Toshiba 42HP83 shows it is capable of 1080i but not 1080p. Is there an update for the software in this unit? How do I get it and how do I upload it?
Thank you

Hello,

1080I and 1080P is more than a software difference. It is a hardware difference in the TV's capability to display a progressive picture at that resolution, so no software update will be able to help you. The processors are only capable of 1080 Interlace, and the TV is only capable of 720 Progressive or 1080 Interlace at it's maximum performance.

Hope this helps you...

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

You read the manual and it will tell you, except in your case it won't as it is not a Smart TV with internet capability. It is a plain and simple television.

Sound is pinned at 100% output. Remote nor physical buttons on device are working.


If any of the buttons on the remote or tv work, then try going into the menu and turning the sound down manually.

Toshiba tv model32w2300A how repair? 0nly in the screen say do not put the power off


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.
