SOURCE: TOSHIBA 55HT1U only shows 480i

Your set will automatically be in the correct resolution. If your set is broadcasting in 480, then that is what it is receiving. I would check your cable or satellite box to verify they are putting out the correct resolution.

The setup reads on a 480i when it should be in 1080i. How do I get the system from the 480 to 1080?


our TV has a 1080p display screen and it does not change. What changes is your input signal. When you see a little message on screen saying "480i" (or anything else), it's telling you the resolution of whatever you have connected to the TV. In this case, it's most likely a standard-def TV channel.

If you *are* using a cable or satellite receiver, you need to get into its menu and set its output resolution to 1080i (which is the maximum for TV channels). Also, it needs to be an HD receiver, if it isn't already.

You only get true 1080p from a Blu-ray player or from certain game consoles.

How to set display to 1080p on Hisense F42K20E?


You don't. The TV has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels; so it's already 1080p. The number of pixels can't be changed.

What you're probably getting mixed up with is the TV showing the resolution of the incoming signal when you change channels or go to a different source. Standard definition from cable might be flagged as 480i. DVD might show either as 480i, or 480p, or maybe 720p or 1080i or 1080p if you have a scaling DVD player and set it appropriately. HDTV on cable or satellite will show as 1080i or possibly 720p. Blu-rays and PS3/XBox 360 or PS4/Xbox One should show as 1080p when your TV is connected.

Whatever the source signal resolution, the TV will scale it up to fill the panel area of 1920x1080 pixels. So the TV is always using all the pixels, regardless of the resolution of the source signal.

How do i change the resolution from 750 to 1080


If you are watching over the air channels via an outdoor antenna, the display resolution 480i, 480p,720p or 1080i is set by the broadcaster. If you are connected to a BluRay player, HD cable box or satellite box you need to set the resolution in the source not the TV. The TV only diplays what it receives..Hopefully that was clear...

How to change resolution on a Toshiba LCD TV from 480i to better?


Can't solve this problem, because I have the same one! I can say that adjusting some of the fine picture contrrols, like brightness, contrast, color etc help a little. This TV is supposed to go 720 and as high as 1080 I thought?..........

Hey, why does my tv only display in 480i when it has 1080 capability? Or is 1080 just part of this tv's name?


You have to use the Red, Grn, and Blue component input to utilize 1080i. ( also the red &wht for the audio input) I hope you are using a HD cable box or satellite because that's the only way you will get it. They have the component outputs you need.

Toshiba D-VR650KU vcr/dvd video recorder


I talked to some very nice people at tech support 1-866-583-7353 and found out that my satellite reciever must be set to 480i, which of course is a pain since like I wanted High Definition. The composite a/v cables (red, white,yellow) are not high def and are part of the reason. I have TiVo and when recording a movie from TiVo to the DVD it states there as well to set the reciever at 480i. Once I did this I was able to record from the Sat to the DVD. I did a quick review and I couldn't find a combo set or just a dvd recorder that has component video cable (red,blue,green) or HDMI inputs at all, I'm thinking that all would have to be recorded at 480i.
