The setup reads on a 480i when it should be in 1080i. How do I get the system from the 480 to 1080?

our TV has a 1080p display screen and it does not change. What changes is your input signal. When you see a little message on screen saying "480i" (or anything else), it's telling you the resolution of whatever you have connected to the TV. In this case, it's most likely a standard-def TV channel.

If you *are* using a cable or satellite receiver, you need to get into its menu and set its output resolution to 1080i (which is the maximum for TV channels). Also, it needs to be an HD receiver, if it isn't already.

You only get true 1080p from a Blu-ray player or from certain game consoles.

Can't change my DVD player from 480 to 1080

You should use an HDMI or Component cables to connect to your TV. BluRay can support 1080P, but older DVDs only support 480i 480p, and 720p output.

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

The TV is a fixed pixel device. The panel has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The incoming video signal is scaled to fit that display. If the signal is 480i then it is deinterlaced to make it 480p, and then scaled up to make it 1080p. The amount of detail in the picture doesn't change. It's still a 480i image. It's just blown up to fill a 1080 panel.

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.

960i is a funny resolution. That would be achieved by line doubling a 480i signal. But it's not one of the VESA HDTV timings. TTBOMK there's no Blu-ray or HD source that generates a 960i image. So even if you could generate it then the TV wouldn't understand what to do with it.

How to change format from 48i to 1080p

Normally that option is provided through the device you use not the TV itself. For example my xbox has options to display at 480/720/1080 and you have to decide.

How to I change tv to 1080i from 480i?

this should automatically be done by the tv. If you input to a standard def input (ie yellow plug) or are using standard def cable it will be 480. If u change to a HD input or an HD channel it should automatically switch to 1080. The input displayed on the tv that says 480i or 1080i is just a result of what is being played, not a setting to be changed.

How do I get 1080 on TV

You only get it if they send it. Only Blue Ray DVD's are in 1080p and games I suppose, as of this time. everything else is 480i or 720p. As your manual says "TV CAN GET"--- not produce what isn't there. I hope this helps.

Even when I receive HDTV chanels, the display reflects only 480.

No adjustments can be made on the TV since the channels are being pick up with the resolution they are being broadcasted. Once the TV tunes to a digital channel(s), it will show the resolution to be either 480i, 720p or 1080i

    How to get 1080 resolution from my plasmaI have the 6842 pe EDTV

    DVDs are 480p
    HD-DVD or Blu-Ray DVD is 720p or 1080i or 1080p

    you cannot increase resolution, if you want to play a 480p/i video on a 1080p/i or 720p screen, you are merely stretching the picture.

    If there is any kind of box that tells you it can convert 480i/p to 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) it is simply stretching the picture.

    you can convert 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) to 480i/p as you are taking out information from the video to make it smaller.
