Question about Sony QUALIA 005 46 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Qualia 005 compatibility with Blue Ray, AND where can I find a stand and a wall mount?

Though the Qualia 005 IS 1080p, the max input is 1080i. I try to conect my Sony blue ray through HDMI, and while I get the audio, no video. Is there any fix to make the set work with my blue-ray?

While I just bought the unit, new in box, I didn't come with a stand. I would love to locate either or both Qualia's simple stand-foot, or a wall mount-would you kwow where I can find this?

I may be sticking my neck out on this one, but I don't believe there is a way to improve the input resolution. If I'm right, the issue is not related to a firmware upgrade but the hardware design of the board and IC's on them. I have the same issue with a Toshiba 1920 x 1080 resolution TV.

The best you can do is to set the blu-ray to output at 720P which is actually higher resolution than 1080i. Here's why. 1080i is actually two fields of 540 resolution interlaced or put another way one 540 image overlaying a second 540 to make one complete video frame.

Still you make the call as to which one looks best to you

Home cinema projector (panasonic) and blue ray player only show half an image


To me itcsounds like ypu have a 1080p signal, 1080i is what it accepts. The 1080p signal will only show up on half the screen. Switch blue ray player to 720p or 1080i output.

Tip

So you just got your new HDTV and the piture isn't as good as you thought.


There are some things you need to know when setting up your HDTV.

First off, you need to use HDMI cables to connect your tv to your cable box or you will not get HD. That being said the first thing you will find is that HDMI cables are expensive. Although you can buy a really cheapo cheap one, be careful. Make sure it can support 1080p or the max resolution your TV displays at. Some of the cheaper ones can only support up to 720p.

So you hooked it up to the cable box using an good HDMI cable and you still do not have the picture you should. There are a few things you may still need too do to get 1080i out of it. Yes, I said 1080i. Even though your tv may be up too 1080p, cable and dish networks only transmit up too 1080i. But don't worry, 1080i is amazing for cable/dish.

First thing you need to make sure of is, does your cable/dish receiver support HD? If you have had the same box for a long time, it may not. You will have to call your provider to get an updated box. If you recently got cable/dish and the box is new, most likely your good to go. Also, it will most likely say on it, HDTV, 1080i or something related to HD on it.

Now you are good to go with you box because it is in fact HD compatible. Some cable boxes may need to be configured for HD. You don't need an HDTV signal if you don't have an HDTV, and not every one does, so why send the unit configured for HD. You need to go into your cable/dish settings and make sure you set the HD set up to display in 1080i.

Okay you set the box to 1080i. There still could be some setting on the TV if your not getting the best picture.

Make sure you are on an HD channel. Make sure you do not have zoom on, and that the TV is set to display an aspect ratio that is determined by the program, or auto. Not all TV's have these settings. Likewise, some tv's allow you to select the max resolution, if this is the case make sure it is set to 1080p, the max it can be.

You should at this point have an excellent picture on the HD channels. Not all channels are HD.

Now, a few other things not worthy as a new owner of an HDTV.

a standard dvd player does not play in high def. they have a max resolution of 480p. 480p is going to look really good if its the first time you watch a dvd on an HDTV, but it can be a lot better. For around starting at $45 and up, you can buy a DVD player that can upscale your dvd's to 1080p when you use HDMI and you will get amazing picture. But for around starting at anywhere from $100 to $150 and up, you can get your self a blu-ray player that will play blu-ray disks, and give you amazing beyond belief picture, and it will upscale your dvd's.

So you got a blu-ray. First thing I can say is I hope your refresh rate is at least 120hz or better. 60hz may disappoint you with a blu-ray player.

Blu-ray can play movies in their native 24 frames a second format of which they were filmed in. However, at 60hz, you will run into a problem trying to play the movie in 24fs. now I am not going to get technical with this, just to let you know, you need 120hz or better to use 24fs. You can turn it off, but you will get blur and it will not be as smooth. As well, with most players you must enable 24fs in the settings, usually by default, it is off,

So to recap:
  • Make sure your cab/dish box is HD compatible.
  • Always use HDMI cables.
  • Check settings on cable/dish box and make sure its set to 1080i.
  • don't use zoom.
  • If applicable, make sure tv settings are at max res of 1080i
  • you need an upscaling DVD player or Blu-ray player to watch your DVD's in HD.
  • Also must us HDMI.
  • Can't use 24fs if you have 60hz refresh rate, but can if 120 or better.
  • 24s is usually off by default.

Is my Protron 3250 1080P?


Unfortunately it is not compatible with 1080p, which tells you it can support blue ray. The highest compatible mode for your unit is 1080i. What this means is if you were to play a blue ray movie it will show it in 1080i resolution.

Samsung sold the LNS4695DX/X as a 1080P TV it only 1080i


Nothing broadcast in 1080p....nothing. You probably just need to set your blu-ray player to output 1080p most will default to low resolution. A 1080i max TV is very rare these days.

Is the 56hm195 1080p like they said it is


The 56HM195 can only take a 1080i signal max. This came from a Toshiba rep when I had the same problem with my Xbox 360. The 1080p you see on the packaging box and on the manual references the fact the 56HM195 upgrades all input signals to 1080p internally and projects that on the screen.

Mitsubishi ws-65313 and blue ray


that is a load of bull trying to sell you a newer TV. If your TV has component video inputs, you can easily connect it to a blue ray player. One thing though is that this TV will not be capable of 1080p resolution but will work fine with 720P and 1080i and at 1080i you probably wont even notice the difference. Get the player from bestbuy and run to the closest walmart and pick up a component video cable for less than 20..

Sony Qualia 46" TV Model # KDX 46Q005


This would mean that your signal is being lost. Instead of snow like from a analog signal you get digital breakup when you get low reception. You need to reposition your antenna or get a better one with a little more power. Nothing wrong with your tv though just not strong enough signal.

LP 640 projector not able to display 1080p


Hello, The LP640 will NOT down-convert 1080p
1080i is the max it can down-convert.

As far as the DIGI input, it is not DVI... It's a proprietary
InFocus format they call M1-D P&D and is NOT HDCP compatible. I have several LP640 manuals, some quite old and none of them claim that 1080p is a valid resolution. interesting that your manual says it is... very odd indeed.

Good Luck!

Cheers
