Re: how do i get my tv at 1080i

I have a mitsubshi WS55311 and if your running an analog cable box or satalite box your not going to get more than 480i Once you get an HD box ( cable or satalite ) then channels that are in HD, you will get 1080i . Good idea to use RGB componet cables along with Digital Audio cables to get the best from your HD 1080i signal. You may need to go into your setup and change your DTV to RGB or one of the other settings if your screen apears to be more of one color than a clear picture, such as all green. Hope this helps.

First of all your system, tv, must be able to perform your request, Secondly, your service must be able to provide the 1080i or 1080p, not all service's provide the service with the equipment they provided you (your box). Check with your provider.

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.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def

I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.

Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.

    How do I put it to 1080 resolution

    I have this same TV and a PS3. You either need to get a HDMI - DVI cable, or plug in some component cables in order to get 1080i from your PS3. Your DVD's will upscale to 1080i and your Blue_Rays will run at 1080i, but be aware, if you play PS3 games that only read 720p on the back of the game box, the PS3 will down convert them to 480p instead of upconverting them to 1080i.

    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.

    Can't get my TV to go to 1080i

    Your tv is either 1080p or not 1080 compliant. Try 720p or you may be forced to keep it at 480
