Re: Cant get 1080i

This TV came out in 1999 and the HDTV standards wern't established yet. Just make sure you are using the DTV YpRpb inputs and not the DVD YpRpb inputs on the back of the set. Leave the menu setting at 480p and on the :"ASSIGN INPUT" sub menu make sure "DTV" is set to YpRpb. Even then it may not be compatible with a PS3 at 1080i.

ONLY HD picture does not fit on WS-55805

To be kind you are wasting your time, This is a 1st generation HD set not designed for the modern equipment you are using---You cannot turn a Model A Ford into a Roll Royce.

I has only one HD input designed for a set top HD box providing it a 1080 I signal.

HD tv with the mitsu

Well if your refering to the right tv (check your model number) then this tv only supports 480i, 480p and 1080i. Ive never seen anywhere that it supports 720i.

The component wires should include three lines for each corresponding color, red green and blue, and finally white and red for left and right audio. I think that is what your refering to.

If everything is right, it should work, the fact your seeing green could be a number of issues... maybe its a direct tv box issue?

High Def.

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.

Try looking out doors, the picture will look that awsome remember that the differance between 480i and 1080i horizotal resolution is 600i lines. more lines better picture. the differance between interlacing and progressive scaning is also a factor. dvd players now have progresive (480p) output but you must set the player to output this to your tv and can only be YPbPr or RGB or HDMI to produce this type picture. S vid or composite vid can never produce this type picture. 480p equates to 960i so it is line doubled. just as 720p equates to 1440i even better than 1080i.

HD resolutions

Your TV would have to be HD ready and will automatically set itself to 1080i, but if you go into the XBOX 360 console settings' the top menu enables you to change resolution, but if the x box does not recognise 1080i it will not show up. See if 720i shows up as this is still High Def. and also that 60 Hertz is the setting and not 50 hertz
