This tv maxes out at 1080i, but that is for the HDMI input. 720p for the Component video input.

Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.


Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

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.

I have a new Sony Bravia KDL-26L-5000 with Directv and the image is pixelated. Can I do anything?


Make sure you have subscribed to a HDTV service with your television provider.

Also, make sure that all of the devices that are connected to your television are HD devices, connected with a HDMI cable, not a coaxial or RCA jack.

HDTVs aren't magical TVs : everything from the source to the television, including your home theater and PVR, if any, must be HD-compatible in order for the picture on your screen to be in high definition.

On BRAVIA screens, I know that, when you select an input, it will briefly show the definition of the source in the corner of the screen. You must make sure it's 1080p. If it's anything other than 1080p, your picture is not in HD.

I remember that my grandparents had a similar problem. It turns out their BRAVIA television was displaying a low quality picture (480i), even though they had subscribed to a HDTV service, just because their satellite receiver was not configured correctly.

So maybe the solution is simply to make sure that each of your devices is configured to display only the highest resolution available (usually 1080p) in order to enjoy the best picture quality. Do not trust "automatic" quality settings, because they tend to select lower quality settings (such as 720p, which is not True HD), when they might be able to display true high definition pictures (1080p).

We have the 61" Samsung. WE LOVE IT!!! We have a DirecTV DVR box. On the DirecTV remote there is a "format" button. It cycles through all the different options. (Pillar Box, Stretch, 720p,1080p, etc.) Adjusting the picture setting with the Samsung remote is not the same thing. Try using the cable remote......see if it works the same as mine.

    Hi - Here is a description of a few terms that might help, especially if you're in the market for a tv. If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.

    High definition television is the highest form of digital television. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is the same as a movie theater screen. This is possibly HD’s biggest selling point. The other is the resolution. High definition is the best available picture on a television. It comes in three different flavors: 720p, 1080i and 1080p.
    What do 720p, 1080i and 1080p mean?
    High definition programs are encoded with a type of resolution: 720p, 1080i or 1080p. The number stands for the amount of lines embedded within the signal. The letter describes the type of scan the television uses to display the picture. The ‘i’ means interlaced and the ‘p’ means progressive.
    Why does the amount of lines matter?
    The number of lines on a television is important because it allows for greater detail in the image. This is a similar concept to digital photos and how dpi determines print quality. The type of televisions all of us grew up watching had 480 visible lines on the screen. By doubling the amount of lines in combination with the type of scan, HD essentially doubles the quality of picture.
    Does it matter if the resolution is interlaced or progressive?
    The type of scan is arguable considering the amount of lines for each HD format. Progressive scan is a better type of scan because it doubles the amount of times the TV displays the image per one second in comparison to interlaced. Still, the difference between 720p and 1080i is so minimal that is isn’t an issue at all. While 1080p is better than 720p and 1080i, very few programs are made in this resolution so it really isn’t a factor right now…and, it might never be.

    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.
