Re: resolution adjustment sony kdl37p3020

Hi, the user manual that came with it explains how to do this. Note however that most cable channels probably won't be broadcasting at 1080i, so you won't see much of a difference. You should also be using a component (red green and blue for video, and red and white for audio) or HDMI cable rather than a composite (yellow for video and red and white for audio) cable to get the best possible quality.

What is the screen resolution to the sharp 32C540 ?

480i is the highest resolution of your tv. The tv has composite, s-video and component inputs in the back. The manual states that with component connections are dvd compatible allowing you to enjoy the highest quality image playback than using s-video. Dvd's resolution are 480i or 480p. I'm guessing it's more 480i than 480p since the tv is a crt tube tv and does not have any of the digital inputs for higher resolutions.

Picture too large for screen

It appears that on this television you can only adjust the picture size when you are using the twin picture feature. You must adjust the picture size with your other remote control. Since I do not know whether you are connected to a cable box or a satellite tv box or a blu ray player or a DVD player I cannot be very specific. On your other remote control you should had an hd zoom button, aspect, format, ratio, #, or etc. Those buttons change the picture size. The other factor determining picture size is the resolution the equipment connected to your tv is set to. This tv supports 1080i but you should also try setting the connected equipment to 720p or 480p or 480i. Also the connected equipment may be connected to your tv in two places so make sure you are on the correct selection using the tv video button on the Sony remote.

Are they HD compatible? We recently upgraded our cable on our 32 inch Sony Trinitron Wega tv (bought it in 2004) and got the dvr/HD package but get no HD

These units are not HD sets. So if you want HD sorry to say you will need a different TV. If you can live without the HD these TVs have a great picture thats as close to HD as a regular set gets.

DVI port on Sony Trinitron KV-32HS500 not standard.What fits it?

I've just recently connected my old 32" Sony KV-32HS510 to my HP G60 Laptop via an HDMI (laptop) to DVI HDTV port(TV) with a cable.

I'm running Windows Vista on my laptop with the nVidia software. Once I've plugged in the TV to the HDMI port, the software initializes (recognizes the TV) and then I can select it as my second 'monitor' in the nVidia control panel.

I found I had to tinker with the resolution settings in the nVidia program to find an optimal resolution where the sides of the screen weren't 'cut off' by the TV.. I finally ended up with the resolution 1152x768 (I believe). It might be different for everybody, as I'm told Vista might do things differently than XP... But you should be able to tinker with the resolution settings and adjust the screen size...

(hope this helps with the second post - above)

Picture flashing

If it is an older "hd" tv it is probably 'hd ready.' Check for adjustments on your source. The tv will most likely only display the highest resolution it is given.

16:9 Enhancement (KV-36HS510) HELP!!

There is a hidden setup on cable box.  Search manual on box.  I have the same TV with a Scientific Atlanta HD DVR.  If you turn off the cable box and hold the Guide + Info Buttons down, it will go into supported resolution setup.  My TV now goes to the appropriate resolution (480i, 720p or 1080i) what ever the channel is broadcasting.
