    I have the same problem. I have a 42" LCD that says its 1080/720/480 compatible and am trying to hook up the comcast HD/DVR tuner. When I hook up the HDMI cable it doesn't work. When I hook up the component cables I get the 480p to work and that's it.

Go the the settings on the cable box. look for output resolution, then change it to 1080i and 720p. now turn the box off and back on your tv will now display the input of wither 1080i or 720p depending on the hd channel your watching.

I am trying to connect my ps3 to this TV. i have tried with AV ables and through HDMI but it does not seem to work. is there a problem with compatability?


hi,
PS3 outputs hi definition video through HDMI ie 1080p. Your tv will not support that resolution. Because its a HD ready one ie 1080i. If you wnat to connect the PS3 through the hdmi then you have to down convert the video output resolution of PS3 to 1080i. for that you have to connect the PS3 to any FULL HD tv and go to the HDMI video setup and down convert the resolution to 1080i. After that you can connect the PS3 to you tv. Surely you will get the video.

There is one more way to get the video in you tv. connect the PS3's component video output to the component video input of you tv and the audio output to the corresponding component audio input . Select component video input on the tv. You need a component video cable and a stereo RCA cable for that.
ok

You have settings in your TV and satellite receiver to set the resolution for the picture. I would first go into the TV settings and use 1080p for the TV resolution. Also, in the receiver setting, you have the HDTV setting. From the main menu, press 6 (System Setup) and then 8 (HDTV Setup). For TV Type change to 1080i. The Aspect Ratio should be 16:9. I hope this helps.

Change the resolution on the cable box or satellite box, witch ever you have. A set by itself cannot change the resolution, if the cable is giving you 720p, that's what you'll see for that station. All stations do not transmit in HD. The best picture is only as good as they're giving you.

There's no way to tell the HDMI input whether it should take 720p or 1080i input on this set. The best thing to do is experiment. Set your Comcast box to 720p and watch it that way for a while, then set it to 1080i and watch it for a while. The PDP42 has to do a little picture manipulation in either mode, but I think you'll find that the 720p mode will work best for you. I have this set with Verizon FiOS and I have the FiOS output set to 720p. Looks great, no complaints.

Picture shifts to left


I had the offset left issue for non-HD channels with my Panasonic 42" plasma, using Comcast HD cable box. Went into the configuration menu (to get there with the newer Comcast boxes, you have to turn the box off, then hit the menu button on the box immediately after). You will see on the menu a resolution (probably says 1080i), then below it a "4:3 override". Our said 480i. When I changed it to "none", so that it stayed 1080i, it worked! It also works by selecting 480p, but then the picture is stretched.

Screen flicker when watching 1080i


Component video has a max resolution of 720p. in order to use 1080i or p you have to use hdmi or dvi connections. That is why you get the flicker.

Ws-65807 65" mitsubishi rear projection tv


For this unit and the addition of the secuity features of Blu-Ray, the 1080i you set can handle is through the component input from a DVD player or an XBOX. In the configuration menu of the PS3, change the resolution to 1080i and see if your set will reset to it. The 1080i on the Blu-Ray is only possible on the HDMI cable as far as I could find, again due to the security restriction. The Mitsu is not going to run it in 720p due to the PS3 is running component and cannot control sync to this set.
