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...

Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.


Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

My tv is Samsung TOCa750. How do I set it up for 1080p and 120Hz?


Resolution such as 1080p,1080i etc. set by your source of the signal, for example, if your cable box set to 720p that is what you going to get from the TV. Cable box is ont capable of resolution more then 1080i because there is nobody broadcast in 1080p yet. Only way you can get 1080p is BD player, upconverting dvd player or media player. 120 Hz is just a frame rate convertor - takes stendard 60Hz and doubles number of frames to 120. So, you will see 120 frames per second instead of 60.

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.

Screen resolution


There is only one type of ''output'' which currently outputs 1080p and that is blu ray players.
Sky HD, free sat HD and even HDDVD's only output at 1080i.

Your TV will automatically output at its highest possible quality from the signal its receiving. Please re-clarify if you are using blu-ray, if not, go and buy a new Blu-ray player!

Playstation 3 display 1200x720


Are you using an HDMI cable to connect? Or a Component Cable? They are the only cables capable of 1080i or 1080p.

If so, go into your video settings and make sure that you CHECK ALL boxes when it get's to "what resolution is your tv capable of" Check all of them from 480 to 1080.

Hope this helps!

1080p signal... THE MITSU. WD-65731 has a resolution of 1080p its just the res your PS3 is pumping into your screen is loaded with a little bit more pixels than you 1080p res MITSU. I suggest getting a MITSU WD-57731 since it has a 1080P/24 input. and has great clarity and HD ample for the BD of your PS3. however the differences in picture rate and quality is very small. goodluck.
