The best way to do it is what sandrew was saying. you can buy a VGA to DVI adapter for about $5 on newegg and then get a DVI to HDMI cable for about $7. Check the owners manual about the higest resolution that it can receive through HDMI, but you should be able to go all the way to 1080p that way. The alternative is to get a VGA to HDMI converter, but thoes are about $200.

Use a vga to dvi or a vga to vga connector lead from the back of your notebook, to the tv dependong on your tv connection inputs, although you will only get 720i not 1080i as you will need a notebook with an hdmi port for that resolution.

How do I change my service from analog to H D?


Most LCD tv's built in the last 4 years are HD compatible. Most cheaper brands tv's are 720 HD and some are full HD 1080 a little more money. Since their is no more analog broadcast as June 2009 all tv's manufactured around 2006 started incorperating the digital tuner (DTV) along with the analog so that the tv would still receive analog broadcast while the digital transistion was ongoing. All tv's with a Cathode Ray Tube (glass picture tube) are not HD compatible. First you will have 1 or 2 ports on the tv ethier on the side panel or rear panel of the set. They a marked HDMI 1 HDMI 2 or HDMI A HDMI B. If you have these ports your set is Hd Compatible. You may also need to upgrade your cable or satelllite equipment and subscribe to a HD package to be able to get HD service. You will need a HDMI cable to connect your cable or satellite receiver to the HDMI port on you tv. Call your local cable or satellite provider for options to upgrade to HD. Most over the air broadcast stations depending on your area transmit some stations in HD free of charge. A good quality outdoor antenna works best to give you stable signal. You may need to change the settings of the tv as some sets default to the 480i this is the standard digital signal.

Screen view area or size, font and channel logo are too large and outside the viewing area, how do we reset ?


Using your cable remote or satellite tv remote as well as the one that came with the television itself. Press the hd zoom # button on the cable remote. Satellite tv remotes will have format or aspect. For satellite tv receivers you may have to go into the menu on the satellite tv box to adjust the picture format i.e. 1080i crop and etc.

Make sure you have the television on the right input for hd and that the cable box or satellite receiver is displaying 1080 i.

How do I hook up a playstation 3 to my mitsubishi medallion hd 1080


The best way to hook up is via the HDMI port. Connect a HDMI cable from the PS3's HDMI port the tv's HDMI port. As soon as you power the PS3 and tv on, you should see the initial setup screen.If it does not dispay press and hold the power button of the PS3 for about 5-10 seconds till you hear a couple of beeps and the initial setup screen. After that its just following on screen instrucions to choose your language, resolution(1080i for best quality), aspect ratio(16:9 works best for large screen tvs) etc., If there is some setting that you are unsure about as to what you should choose, let me know and I will help you with that.

How does it help to have a Full HD LCD TV?


Hi - welcome to Fixya,

There is no advantage in buying a Full HD (1080p) TV if you are only using it for watching TV. Currently, there are no Full HD television broadcasts and there are no plans to introduce any. All UK HD channels currently broadcast in 720p resolution whether they are on Sky, Freeview, or Freesat. Therefore, any TV that is described as 'HD ready' rather than 'Full HD' will display all HD channels at maximum quality or resolution.

The advantage of Full HD is when using them with Blu-ray DVD players, gaming systems, e.g. Sony Playstation, or for playback of media files from your PC. These systems output at 1080p / Full HD (but only when connected with an HDMi cable) and you would need a full HD TV in order to get the best quality / resolution from these systems. However, you don't need a Full HD TV to connect these devices as they can all display their output on a 720p HD Ready TV.

The main disadvantage of any HDTV (1080 or 720) is when watching standard definition (SD) broadcasts. Full HD TVs have 1080 horizontal display lines, but SD broadcasts only have 540 horizontal lines. When watching SD channels on an HD TV, the other 540 lines, i,e half of the picture, are being created by software within the TV - known as 'Upscaling'. Upscaling requires processing by the TV which takes time and fast motion can seem blurred or blocky/pixellated as a result. Higher end TVs have faster response times (0.5ms or less) which minimises the pixellation so this specification is important when selecting an HD TV for purchase.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

How to view TV in a Desktop PC via a USB TV Tuner?


Depending on which kind of tv tuner you are looking (analog basic cable) or HD tuner, the higher end tv tuners will usually handle both basic cable or connecting via satellite or some sort of set top box.

I would look for the ATI TV wonder HD, your going to want a tv tuner that can do hardware encoding on the actual tuner itself, older tuners will rely on your pc to process a lot of the data.

Converting up to 1080


Hello. You have to use the HDMI port and connect to the HDMI, or DVI, port on the back of the TV to get 1080. Even if playing HDDVD, this cable is necessary to get the increase. That, and the TV has to be in 1080 too. If you look at the display, on the front of the player, while watching the DVD, it will tell you at what resolution the DVD is playing. The HDMI to HDMI/DVI must be installed to get the increase in resolution. I have a Panasonic HD 34" 1080i widescreen TV, with DVI connection. When connected, the player played my DVD's at 1080i on my TV, while at only 480i thru the composite cables.

On some older movies or series(I like Star Trek- TNG), it doesn't work well due to the transfer to the DVD. Most newer DVD's, such as Batman Begins (there is an HD out, but I have DVD only), improved on the upconvert for me nicely.
