Re: Upconvert Problem

Turn the power off. On the front of the tv hold down menu then power then channel down, in about 8 seconds the service menu will come up, go to geometry and write down the original settings before you begin. Adjust, check store and hit menu to exit. Problem solved........NEXT!

How do I go from 480p to 1080dpi on my 65inch HDTV

If you're using an HDMI cable your display will automatically adjust the settings based upon the video source. Make sure that your source is capable of outputting 1080p. If it's an HD Cable Box or DVR, the maximum resolution it can display is 1080i. If you have one of these HD boxes, set it to only display 1080i as there will be a delay every time you change channels from a channel that is not naturally at 1080i.
If your source is a standard DVD player, it can only display images in 480i (or 480p if it is Progressive Scan) and therefore your TV will display the picture in 480 resolution. If your source is an upconverting DVD player it will display up to 1080p however, Keep in mind that DVD's are in 480 resolution and that regardless of upconversion (or upscaling, though improved, the picture will not be in HD.
The only way to achieve a true 1080p (not dpi... that's dots per inch... that's a printer term. The "p" is for Progressive Scan as opposed to an "i" for Interlaced) is from a 1080p source, i.e., a Blu-Ray disc player playing a Blu-Ray Disc with the use of an HDMI cable. Component Cables can achieve 720p/1080i only with your TV as it does not support 1080p over component cables.
As an aside, there are some media players that support 1080p output and some DirecTV Boxes and DVR's d oas well for 1080p Pay Per View movies.

I have been trying to hook my dvd player up to my WD-52528 mitsubishi,but i am having touble trying to figure it out so i can watch a movie,and i have misplaced my manuel.can anybody help me?

If you have an upconvert dvd player use a hdmi cable, it's the easiest. If not use component cables for video (red green and blue, labeled Y, pb, pr on the back of the tv) and standard left & right ( red and white) for audio.

Mitsubishi 55 in. 1080 series

If I remember correctly, this TV has a couple of constraints that will cramp your style:

1. It supports 480i, 480p and 1080i. NO 720P
2. It has component video inputs, but NO HDMI. (as you stated)

There is no easy solution here, because I've never found an upconverting DVD player that would upconvert anything past 480p using the analog component outputs...


Perhaps you can find an Upconverting BLU-RAY disk player that may allow older DVDs to be upconverted to 1080i via the component outputs.

MOST Blu-Ray players allow 1080i output via the analog connections on Blu-Ray discs, so perhaps there is your solution.

You can't do it through the menu - you have to connect your cable or sat box to the TV using red, green, and blue component cables to the right most red/blue/green slot on the back of the TV. It will upconvert automatically.

Upgrading my 480 component input to 1080

Get an upconverting DVDP that puts out 1080i on component. They were made several years ago, and today it can't be done without HDMI, which your set is too old for.

Momitsu, Bravo, Lite0n made them, with the Samsung 841 hackable for that purpose. Try to find one used, and be sure to ask whether they upconvert SD - standard - DVDs from 480i->1080i before you buy. Then take that 1080i in via component, which is stellar in its performance and has none of the anomalies that are plaguing HDMI on many brands of CRT units.

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.
