Change the resolution through your Cable / Satellite box - Go into the menu. Most of the Akai tv sets do not have an option to change the resolution.

How do i change from 480p to 1080p on my rca remote


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

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.

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.

    How do I change the Format from 480 1080i


    Make sure that the DVD player is set to output 1080i. Then, check that you have hooked up the DVD player to the TV via the HDMI cable. If you are using something other than the HDMI cable, they the best you can do is 480p.

    Try looking out doors, the picture will look that awsome remember that the differance between 480i and 1080i horizotal resolution is 600i lines. more lines better picture. the differance between interlacing and progressive scaning is also a factor. dvd players now have progresive (480p) output but you must set the player to output this to your tv and can only be YPbPr or RGB or HDMI to produce this type picture. S vid or composite vid can never produce this type picture. 480p equates to 960i so it is line doubled. just as 720p equates to 1440i even better than 1080i.

    HD resolutions


    Your TV would have to be HD ready and will automatically set itself to 1080i, but if you go into the XBOX 360 console settings' the top menu enables you to change resolution, but if the x box does not recognise 1080i it will not show up. See if 720i shows up as this is still High Def. and also that 60 Hertz is the setting and not 50 hertz
