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.
Under the settings menu there will be a video resolution setting. Auto is your best selection. Cable companies will not tell you this but the highest resolution you can get out of them is 1080i. If you are watching on a dish or a DVD then you can get the full 1080p. Most television channels...unless specified are coming in at 720P.
Go into the TV set-up menu for Video resolution. Default likely is YES to all resolutions, possibly causing signal-negotiation delay. Change 480i, 480p, 720p 1080p to NO and 1080i to YES. (If delay is resolved, try 1080p=YES too)
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.
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.
U can't change any air tv programs show on over the air resolution.Resolution are set by the tv stations set their programs by airing itself like 480i,720i and 1080i.U get what u get,the only thing is the tv programs air resolution air,the tv u got can get that resolution,that it.
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...
OK, Great ! I have the same box. What you do is press MENU on the remote. Scroll down with arrow keys and goto SETTINGS and press select. Scroll down to VIDEO SETTINGS and press enter. Press the right arrow key to go into VIDEO FORMAT. Make sure you have 1080i selected if you haven't had it selected already. Click continue and not your box will output only 1080i. Now, one more thing. While still in VIDEO SETTINGS, scroll down to SD OVERRIDE. Press the right arrow key and make sure you have this setting turned OFF. Press Menu few times to exit out. Now, your Motorola box will only output 1080i and will upconvert SD channels to 1080i. To test this, just simply switch from and HD channel to a SD channel and your TV should stated 1080i on both stations. You TV will not have to switch between resolutions. Hope this helps...
Go the the settings on the cable box. look for output resolution, then change it to 1080i and 720p. now turn the box off and back on your tv will now display the input of wither 1080i or 720p depending on the hd channel your watching.
