So with the upcoverter??

Do you have a suggested model? I am not looking for true 1080i but just looking for something with better quality than the component progressive scan i am using now.

I was looking at the Panasonic 1080p up converter.

Greetings jhays82,

While I am not familiar with all the models out there, I personally purchased a Samsung upconvert 2 years ago and I could definately see the difference between this and my progressive scan dvd player from before. In searching online for the Panasonic 1080p upconvert, there are several differing opinions, however my suggestion would be to purchase the one that appeals to you and utilize the 30 day return policy if the unit does not work for you.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Agent Dort

Going "Green" with HDTV In addition to considering screen size, TV type, and available features also consider ways to conserve energy. Below are a few energy consumption tips for your HDTV:
Turn the TV off when not in use.
Turn on the power-saver mode
Many TVs these days come with a power-saver mode that's designed to cut down the power consumption. Performance of this mode varies from model to model, with the effect sometimes being drastic and other times providing only a slight savings. The only downside is that the power-saver mode usually makes the TV less bright, but we've found that sometimes this has a beneficial effect on the image quality, especially with the room lights turned off, in which case it's a win-win situation.
Turn down the LCD's backlight
Many LCDs give you the ability to control the intensity of the backlight in the TV. By turning down the backlight, you'll lower power consumption, but also make the television less bright. While retail stores love to turn the backlights up all the way for their displays, we find that we get the best image quality when we turn down the backlight significantly.
Control room lighting
Reduction in the intensity of the backlight is going to make the TV less bright, but that can be compensated by controlling the light in your home theater room. While this may be a little overboard just for power consumption, limiting the light in your home theater also goes a long way toward creating the "theater" experience, as well as getting the most out of your TV.
And beyond TV concerns, good-quality blackout shades offer thermal benefits that keep other energy costs low; they keep heat in during the winter and keep it out during the summer.
Watch TV together
Having multiple televisions in a house is more of a norm than a luxury these days, but that also means your power consumption is going to increase as well. You can cut that power consumption by watching with your family or housemates. You might need to make a few compromises on what you watch, but sometimes it's more fun to watch with friends and family.
Don't forget to properly recycle your old model
If donating or repurposing your old TV is not a viable option, CNET encourages households to recycle their electronics. Please explore the following websites to find a recycling center in your area Electronics Take Back Coalition or Earth 911.
HDTV source resolutions There are two main HD resolutions in use today by HD broadcasters and other sources: 1080i and 720p. One is not necessarily better than the other; 1080i has more lines and pixels, but 720p is a progressive-scan format that should deliver a smoother image that stays sharper during motion. Another format is also becoming better known: 1080p, which combines the superior resolution of 1080i with the progressive-scan smoothness of 720p. True 1080p content is extremely scarce, however, and none of the major networks have announced 1080p broadcasts. The term 1080p today appears mostly in reference to the displays' native resolution, not the source.

1080p is not avalable on much right now, you will find it as a stp up option on some of the pay movies but HD is only 720p not 1080p yet. 1080i is the best you will get for now

HOW CAN I TELL IF MY TV IS 720 OR 1080 ALSO HOW CAN I TELL THE MEGA HERTZ


Go to the Magnavox site and look up your set, or do a search on the net for the model number.
I found a spec sheet at: http://www.annunci-qui.com/14/posts/16_Annunci_Audio_tv_foto/103_televisori_e_proiettori/461_MAGNAVOX_50ML8105D_50.html
This set will only work up to true 1080i. It will not work in true true 1080p which is the full HD mode. They don't say it clearly in the specs, but its 1080p mode is an up-converted mode. The cable or satellite box has to be able to handle 1080 modes. For normal viewing in HD this set should be visually very good. Only a Blue Ray DVD player and some other types of gadgets are able to put out a 1080p video signal.
Cable and satellite services are normally in 720i, some are in 720p, and a few specialty feeds are in 1080i. Most satellite and cable TV boxes cannot support anything above 720i.
The lamp life is 4000 hours. The lamp is fairly expensive to replace. I would seriously consider to upgrade to an LCD or Plasma display. The new generation of TV sets are far superior to the DLP types. Whatever type you choose, make sure it can work with true 1080p.
Go in to some of the show rooms and compare a projected type TV (if they still have them) to a true flat screen. All the projected type screens can never achieve the sharpness and aspect ratio accuracy of a flat screen set.

It very much depends on:
the model of DVD player you have and whether it is a standard or blu-ray player
the settings on the player
the type of connection (component and HDMI will yield a better picture)

Upconversion to 1080i playback


Hey smittybd,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this specific model DVD player is only able to provide upconverted 1080i images via its HDMI output and a maximum 480p resolution using its component connectors. Please keep in mind that while component cables are able to support 1080i and 1080p resolutions, not all hardware (TV's and DVD players) will support these resolutions through component connections.

If you're having difficulty locating a model that specifically supports 1080i resolution images through its component connections, you may wish to try visiting individual manufacturers' websites for more information. Some companies (such as Sony) will provide detailed information regarding what each type of connection is capable of in their owner's manual documentation.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Motorola DCH3200 Cable Box


Be sure that you took the time to force the output of the DCH3200 to 1080i. They do not seem to come set that way by default! This is true whether you are using either the component or HDMI output.

Power OFF the unit and immediately push the Menu key on the front panel. Using the remote, be sure that the 2nd line of the config is set to 1080i and not something less.

Looks like you are going to be working with the following:

 

1080i (HDTV) • 480p (EDTV) • 480i (SDTV)

 

Hook up depends on what else you have connected to the TV.  If you have nothing connected to the DTV component inputs, I suggest using those, as it will allow up to 1080i.  Otherwise, use the 2 other component connections directly to the left of the DTV connections.
