Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television
This model supports the following formats: 1080i, 720p, 720i, 480p, 480i. Most likely it isn't the TV that is not allowing the 1080i resolution but rather your cabling or the inputs that you are using.
Be sure that that you have an HD signal coming into the TV. You may have to upgrade your cable subscription or if you already have the channels sometimes you have to tell your cable box to use 1080. The same goes for DVD players; they often default to only 480 to maximize compatibility.
The other area to check is your cabling. For the best results use HDMI or Component video.
If you have already checked both of these options let me know & I'll try to come up with some other options for you.
