Question about Philips Televison & Video
Well recently I traded my Xbox360 for one with HDMI. Well I plugged it in and chose optimal resolution, it chooses 1080p. (TV is 1366x768.)
Well just the other day I thought the cable wasn't good quality so I switched it with My HD box's HDMI cable. Boot up my 360 and everything is sharper and I go to display and it doesn't have the HDMI color thing or HDTV settings. It says Resolution's and Reference levels. Went to the first one and saw a bunch of PC resolutions that went up to 1920x1080. All of the resolutions worked (including 1440x900 and 1680x1050 but there were black bars at the top.) Well I clicked 1360x768 and it worked! But I found out there was no sound. Now I messed with it a bit I can't get it back to PC MODE. How can I do this again? tl;dr

1080p refers to the resolution you get when watching television. When you're using the TV as a computer monitor a different resolution scale applies. In other words, television resolution and computer resolution are measured differently.

I think this stems from the fact there is no VGA mode designation (not plug and play) however there are VGA H&V settings that may be overidden from autodect mode under ADVANCED in teh menu. What sux is that it isnt stored and must e reset when input changes. FIRMWARE UPDATE PLEASE INSIGNIA!

What I suspected from your description of problem is that there is some kind of compatibility issue or content protection when you plug in an additional HDMI to DVI converter.
I am also using an Airtel HD connection, though however, I wouldn't need any kind of converter because I am directly connecting HDMI cable to my LCD and it works like a wonder. I set up my box output resolution to 1080i and there is no display resolution mismatch. Not even at other resolutions.
Airtel is using 1920x1080 resolution in signal transmission, so the possibility of 1079 from there end is ruled out, otherwise, the same problem would have been observed when direct HDMI cable is being used. I hope you understand my point.
Now you might also ask why you weren't able to see this problem when you connect the monitor to your PC graphics card. I would like to tell you that graphic cards are very versatile and does have the capability of 1:1 pixel mapping, so there you wouldn't see any such problem.
read this link for more http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdtodvico.html , where a person is able to match resolution using a similar converter.
I believe the converter you use isn't able to do 1:1 pixel mapping and is actually downgrading the resolution which your monitor is not able to support.
You can try out other resolution type from the STB and if you still see similar problems, then you may need to get an alternative converter.
Follow these steps to change the STB resolution type;
Enter the Menu from STB remote -> scroll to 'My Settings' -> Enter 'System Setup' -> 'HD Setup'. Here you change to a lower resolution and press ok from remote.

The TV resolution is set by the video sources, not at the TV, in this case, your Dish network box is the one that is sending out 480p so the TV will display what it is being fed with.
What does Dish TV say aboyt this problem? How about the setup menu on the Dish network box?
Your TV works the same as your PC monitor, except that your monitor does not have a tuner, you adjust the resolution at the PC not at the monitor. 480p in = 480p display.
