When hdmi upconverting to 720p (with Oppo 981 player) approx 1 hour or so into a movie, the picture will suddenly change to a distorted multi-colored image much like the alien's p.o.v. vision in the movie Predator. The projector is locked up, remote will not function, and must be shut down manually with the power switch on the unit. This does not occur at 480p. After powering back up the image is fine...until it happens again. It is possible that this occurs at the discs layer change, however I can't verify this. Web searches show this to be quite common among Sanyo Z3 owners.

is that with a dvd player or cable box
unless yuor using an upconverting dvd player you will only get 480 I
if your using a cable box you need to have your cable company come and turn it to 1080 or 720 which ever you want
I've never seen an upconverting DVD player that could
match the image quality of a high-definition disc player, particularly
when you're outputting to a larger TV. The basic issue is that the maximum resolution of DVD is 720x480 while
Blu-ray is 1,920x1,080. The Blu-ray image is much larger and made up of
more information than the DVD image.
You didn't mention the size of your TV, but anything over 32" and high-quality picture is important to you....go BluRay. Not to mention that BluRay are relatively inexpensive now.
Are you just using the yellow cable at this point, because the quality would in fact be awful? Using the green, red & blue cables (component cables) would not improve quality much, seeing as the yellow video cable has a resolution of 480i and component cables are set at 480p. Your TV (if it is in fact high definition) would either run at 720p or 1080p depending on what the manual says and what the native resolution is. I would say try and buy and upconvert DVD player and make sure to get an HDMI cable to go from the DVD player to the HDTV (some DVD players come with this cable, but you'll have to look around for them, otherwise look on buy.com or something for some cheap ones). HDMI connection and the upconvert DVD player will improve picture quality significantly.
Some DVD players can upconvert DVD signals to resolutions that match those of HDTVs, and send them to a compatible TV via a digital video connection. HDMI (High-Definition Media Interface) and DVI (Digital Visual Interface) both offer high-quality digital transmission of standard- and high-definition video signals. HDMI can also carry multichannel audio, and is backwards compatible with DVI (video only). So in other words, to receive the full benefit from an upconvert, you would want to hook it up with HDMI or DVI.
Try pressing the HDMI button on your remote a couple of times, pause about 5seconds after each press it might be slow to change. If this doesn't work try connecting just the yellow lead(composite video) into the DVD player to the TV like the old days, probably AV1 or AV2 in the back of the TV. Then access the setup menu(setup button on remote). This will bring up a menu. Use the down arrow on the remote until HDMI setup is highlighted. You should then get a selection to turn HDMI on and select the different outputs(576, 720p, or 1080i). You might actually find the picture to be worse on some DVDs.
