RCA 52" rear projection d - board

Just had the "D" board replaced but i can't get the 1080i resolution from an XBOX360 to the tv. XBOX360 1080i works great on buddies tv so i'm pretty sure it has something to do with my tv. could changing the d board cause my tv to only work on 480i if it was the wrong board?

Re: RCA 52" rear projection d - board

By "D" board i would think that would be the deflection..which i have to ask....What does that have to do with it .... these uniits have a board called signal board that handles formating the different pic sizes. What was the problem before that board was replaced?

When using PS3 on RCA D52W19 TV, the screen does not fit ( it is zoomed and off-center) in 1080i resolution.

Have you tried to toggle "format" or "screen size"? On those sets non HD and HD settings could be adjusted separately. Try that, first. If no luck, try similar settings on PS3. I bet, you will be able to match screen format there, as well. To me it looks, like picture formats are mismatched. Also: try to use "component" cables, instead of DVI adapter cable, if nothing works.
good luck,

The picture seems to have gotten bigger and now the tops of their heads are cut off

When this happens you can try the wide/picture format/view mode button on your television's remote control first. If your remote does not have one or if this does not correct the problem check the resolution on the cable box next. If your television displays 720p make sure the cable box is set for 720p, or 1080i if the television supports that resolution. First you have to make sure your tv in on the right input not the tv tuner input. Then use the hdzoom# button on the cable remote. If you have a satellite remote it might say format or aspect or you might have to go into the cable box/satellite receiver menu and choose 1080i crop or 1080i stretch to get the right picture size.

Tv resolution

It will produce 1080i or 480p using the component input jacks. No way as sharp as 720p. This is of coarse your cable provider gives it to you, and your using a box.

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.

PC via DVI to D52W20

I'm using a component dongle from an ATI x800. Never have had a problem. My resolution is 1664x936. I noticed that this RCA auto formats the screen size with the DVI-D or component, so you'll have to make the adjustments via your video card. Windows display properties might not let you select that resolution, so hopfully your video card software will allow you to pick a resolution. It would not let me use any kind of 720p resolution only 1080i settings would work.

I don't think you'll have any problems with burn in on a rear projection TV. CRT and LCoS type televisions can have burn in problems
