Re: How do I change the Format from 480 1080i

Make sure that the DVD player is set to output 1080i. Then, check that you have hooked up the DVD player to the TV via the HDMI cable. If you are using something other than the HDMI cable, they the best you can do is 480p.

It say 480 stretch on the screen how do I turn it to 1080 for my Hd tv

Make it sure that you have a 1080 signal from your source(eg. HD receiver, bluray player etc.). Try pressing format button on the remote until you get full picture . Or try changing the format or aspect ration in your satellite or cable box.

We hooked our Sony kp43ht20 to dishnetwork. Now the screen is not full screen. How do we make it full screen again? And where is the ratio button to change to 1080?

Is this hooked to a high definition dish network? If so there is a format button on the remote to change the picture size. As far as changing it to 1080 it will only broadcast in what it sees if it is not in high def it can't broadcast in hi def.

My new "panasonic" dmp bd80 not support the PAL DVD format and can't play some DivX disks. Can you give some solution to solve the problem?

Check the dvd player settings. Try and switch the dvd player itself to NT instead of pal.

Some newer DVD Players also play videos in the MPEG-4 ASP video compression format (such as DivX) popular in the Internet, as well as the RMVB video compression format.

Check any settings on dvd player to switch format output, or check tv settings so it accepts all formats.

How do I reset big screen tv to 1080 on remote

You don't.
It should automatically switch to 1080 when and only when there is a HD signal present. Otherwise it will be in 480 and you will need to use the format button on the remote to change the picture size. If it does not switch to 1080 and you know for sure you have a true HD signal present, there is a problem with the unit.
Hope this helps,

Picture problem

I have an older Mitsibutishi 52" HD 1080. I recently upgraded my cable box to DirecTV HDTV. When I change to format to view in 1080 the TV goes from full screen to what seems to be wide screen with a black bar on the top and bottom. If I change the format to 480p I get a full screen; but the picture has a "redish tint" over it as if looking through sunglasses...I tried everything in my TV manual even call the cable company. Any suggestions?

Can you connect to upconversion DVD Player for HDMI performance

The TV supports 1080i so if your hardware is plugged into the Component Cable Connection for Digital TV on the back the signal will come out 1080i as long as the hardware supports the size.

For example, my 360 is connected like this and when the dvd player is in use it upscales from the 480 format dvds use to 1080. More on the HD-DVD for the 360 and how it handles the sizes here:

Kind of an old article since the newer 360s have hdmi and support 1080p that route.

Hopefully this helps.
