Re: how do i get 1080p

How did you get 720p? I have having trouble viewing anything above 480p. When using my directv HD DVR, the screen goes black when it tries to show anything above 480p. Is it the tv or the DVR?

How do i change from 480p to 1080p on my rca remote

You don't. The TV's resolution can't be changed. Only the signal resolution from the source can be altered.

The TV reports the resolution of the incoming signal before it is scaled. If you have a BD player you can see the effect of changing the resolution setting from 480p, to 720p, to 1080i, to 1080p 60, to 1080p 24. The last three (the 1080 resolutions) shouldn't look too different with a Blu-ray apart from movement because the native picture is 1080p 24 and the TV is simply converting it back to 1080p 24 for display.

How do I go from 480p to 1080dpi on my 65inch HDTV

If you're using an HDMI cable your display will automatically adjust the settings based upon the video source. Make sure that your source is capable of outputting 1080p. If it's an HD Cable Box or DVR, the maximum resolution it can display is 1080i. If you have one of these HD boxes, set it to only display 1080i as there will be a delay every time you change channels from a channel that is not naturally at 1080i.
If your source is a standard DVD player, it can only display images in 480i (or 480p if it is Progressive Scan) and therefore your TV will display the picture in 480 resolution. If your source is an upconverting DVD player it will display up to 1080p however, Keep in mind that DVD's are in 480 resolution and that regardless of upconversion (or upscaling, though improved, the picture will not be in HD.
The only way to achieve a true 1080p (not dpi... that's dots per inch... that's a printer term. The "p" is for Progressive Scan as opposed to an "i" for Interlaced) is from a 1080p source, i.e., a Blu-Ray disc player playing a Blu-Ray Disc with the use of an HDMI cable. Component Cables can achieve 720p/1080i only with your TV as it does not support 1080p over component cables.
As an aside, there are some media players that support 1080p output and some DirecTV Boxes and DVR's d oas well for 1080p Pay Per View movies.

Go to the Magnavox site and look up your set, or do a search on the net for the model number.
I found a spec sheet at:
This set will only work up to true 1080i. It will not work in true true 1080p which is the full HD mode. They don't say it clearly in the specs, but its 1080p mode is an up-converted mode. The cable or satellite box has to be able to handle 1080 modes. For normal viewing in HD this set should be visually very good. Only a Blue Ray DVD player and some other types of gadgets are able to put out a 1080p video signal.
Cable and satellite services are normally in 720i, some are in 720p, and a few specialty feeds are in 1080i. Most satellite and cable TV boxes cannot support anything above 720i.
The lamp life is 4000 hours. The lamp is fairly expensive to replace. I would seriously consider to upgrade to an LCD or Plasma display. The new generation of TV sets are far superior to the DLP types. Whatever type you choose, make sure it can work with true 1080p.
Go in to some of the show rooms and compare a projected type TV (if they still have them) to a true flat screen. All the projected type screens can never achieve the sharpness and aspect ratio accuracy of a flat screen set.

Green tint to picture when dvi cable is connected

The tv will show correctly in 720p mode. Cable box and PS3 must be set to display in 720p or the green tint will remain. For the PS3 I return it to 1080p when I am about to play a game, blu-rays and dvd's can only play in 720p.

New Samsung 1080p TV not displaying Full 1080 from PS3 Blu Ray movies

Hi hsaucier,

Although you have a wide-screen television, it is possible the video you are viewing was recorded in an even wider format. The bars should be smaller than if you were viewing the same DVD on a TV with a 4:3 aspect ratio, but will likely not disappear unless you view the DVD at a zoom setting. Many movies are shown in theaters at a wider ratio than 16:9, and the Blu-Ray disc has probably retained the entire picture rather than cropping it to fit your screen.

I recommend trying different viewing options that zoom in slightly. Be aware that this may cut off part of the picture from the left and right sides, but depending on your personal preference, you may not notice anything missing.

Thank you,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Mitsubishi ws-65313 and blue ray

that is a load of bull trying to sell you a newer TV. If your TV has component video inputs, you can easily connect it to a blue ray player. One thing though is that this TV will not be capable of 1080p resolution but will work fine with 720P and 1080i and at 1080i you probably wont even notice the difference. Get the player from bestbuy and run to the closest walmart and pick up a component video cable for less than 20..

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.
