Features of Pioneer PDP-4340HD Unique among today's HDTVs, the Pioneer PDP-4340HD runs on a 72Hz vertical refresh rate. That's an exact multiple of the 24 frames per second at which films are displayed, enabling the panel to use a video-processing technique called 3:3 pull-down (instead of the 2:3 pull-down used in previous 60Hz displays). In English, that means you should see a more stable picture when viewing DVD movies and other video material that was originally shot on film. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to be the case in our tests (see Performance for more).

This panel shares with its like-size, similarly priced competition a 1,024x768 native resolution. That number of pixels bests less expensive 852x480 EDTV models and results in sharper high-def images (but not in sharper DVD or standard TV images). Even a count of 1,024x768 pixels can't display 720p, the lowest high-def resolution, in full detail, but it's as high as plasmas get in this screen-size range.

Tv is showing 480p and we want it at 1080p on our new Toshiba 40XV648 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz HD LCD TV Cinema Series.

After searching the owners manual I find that there is nothing mentioned about the screen resolution i.e. 480p to 1080p.

This set is capable of your desired resolution and as far as I can tell it auto selects because it senses the input video and decides which is the best setting for that source.

It's important to understand that you need 1080p video to use it at it's full capabilities. It won't give you a 1080p resolution from a VCR or a standard DVD player. You need a DVD player that is capable of producing a 1080p encoded video. Some satellite receivers are capable of that but you need to make sure you know what resolution that you are sending to the television.

Local TV stations won't usually broadcast HD at 1080p. Your best bet is to use a DVD player that is capable of that high resolution for your best picture.

Please note that what it says in the owners manual about "Resolution" has nothing to do with the 480p, 720p or 1080p signals, your set selects that automatically it will start by selecting the 1080p then goes to 720p then 420p it's dependent on the video you send to the set.

Please note the "resolution" function is actually like a "sharpness" control.

Your video input (tuner, VCR, DVD, games and etc.) is likely your problem.

I am in need to unlock my TOSHIBA HD-A35 HD DVD player so it can play region 4 dvds. Can u help?

There is no region free firmware available for your player at the moment. There is a guy in australia who has created one but will not release it. HD DVD's dont have region coding. I assume its for regular dvds?

Toshiba HD-A30 won't play digital sound with HD DVDs

Try checking your audio output in the setup screen of dvd player. Try setting Digital Out HDMI to Auto, if it isn't already. See if that helps.
