I have a Panasonic DMREX85EBS that says it can upscale to 10801 720p , I have a hdmi cable connected but every DVD or recording I play it only ever says it is at 576p. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong?
Check the HDMI settings and your TV specifications. Press Functions on your remote and go to Display (up/down arrows). Press Enter. Go to Connections and again Enter. Then HDMI settings and Enter. Look for HDMI video settings. If the setting is automatic, the unit sends the output it believes is best for the TV. You will notice that the compatible video outputs are the only ones available for selection. (A new cable may be worth testing.)

Component cables don't have the ability to carry decrypted HD info.
HDCP is "High Definition Copy Protection"...In theory, it prevents you from running the HDMI cable out of your receiver, and into a recording device, thereby recording HD content without a license for it.
HDCP handshaking is done between devices that run HDMI, or DVI.
If you're running component from your Cable box, and then HDMI out to your TV, then the content you're carrying from the Cable box may not be getting decrypted properly when it gets upscaled onto the HDMI port from Component.
IT could also simply be that you're using an HDMI 1.1 or HDMI 1.2 cable, which may not be able to carry the high bandwidth stream of your Receiver and TV.
Please be sure that all HDMI devices can support the same HDMI version, and also be sure your HDMI cable is labled "HDMI 1.x compliant". . .e.g. if your TV and Amp support HDMI 1.2, make sure you're also using an HDMI 1.2 Cable.
Depending on the model of your Yamaha, you will have to go into setup of it. In there go to the input settings and select what should be done. Example: for DVD select HDMI as input. I take it you are using the HDMI out as well? This is what I had to do on my RX-V3800n
Upscaling will only occur when playing DVDs. You have to use an HDMI connection from the DVD player to the tv. For upscaling of DVD's you will also have to setup the upscaling resolution in the DVD player's setup menu. Be sure to set the resolution to one that your tv will support.
If your tv does not have a HDMI input, then you will not be able to use the upscaling feature.
Upscaling will not occur on antenna signals. This is not possible because the hardware (inside DVD player) is only meant to upscale DVD video.
Again, to upscale DVDs ONLY, you will have to have an HDMI cable going from DVD player to TV, set up your upscaling options on your DVD setup menu and have a TV that has a HDMI input and is capable of recieving the upscaled resolution you have set your DVD player to.
If you have any further question regarding this, let me know!
ok the problem might not be with your receiver it is with your direct tv settings. Double check to make sure you go to the format and set it up to be fixed or 1080i whichever will give you the highest resolution. Check your manual for the direct tv receiver. If this is all correct for the DTV then you must go into the setup on the receiver and at hardware icon toward bottom check on that box, now goto the hdmi settings and make sure it is set to through. this will allow the best picture with no upscaling which will degregade picture for blu ray. so your direct tv will be only 1080i but very impressive. if you still want to upscale you can then you have to change the hdmi settings from before to upscale 1080p . I just hope that your dtv can output 1080i it will give a better picture than 480p even if both are upscaled to 1080p
Oh i forgot to ask if you are connected through hdmi to the tv. Hdmi is the only option for upscaling
For the record I have a playstation 3 running to tx100 through hdmi to
dvi adapter. It does all resolution no probs, including 720p,1080i and
1080p (which tx100 does do smoothly through dvi). My denon upscaling
dvd player works fine too. In fact the tx100 looks totally awsome with
PS3 games and Blu-ray.
Maybe your dvi lead is the wrong type (i think there are 2 types)
or perhaps you could test with a differrent piece of DVI kit in case
it's your pioneer causing probs? Hope this helps.
I am not sure if you have gone into the Receivers Menu or not?
If you have NOT! Then please try this:
Go into the Receivers Menu (If you do not see the MENU on the TV you can hook up a Composite (Yellow) Cable from the Receivers Monitor Out (Yellow) and select the Input on the TV that you plug into)
Look in the Menu for Inputs or In/Out Config. or Video Setup.
Look for the Input that you are using for that Device.
Change the Video setting to HDMI.
I also recommend doing this for you Audio as well.
Find the Audio Inputs and MATCH each Input to there DEVICE and CABLE (Connection) Being used.
Also check in the Receiver Menu for UPSCALE or UPSCALER.
Turn this on or off to see if your TV is Compatible!
Hope This Helps!
P.S. Check the Manual for Upscaling Capabilities NOT all Receivers upscale and route the SAME!
in the dvd player make sure you just leave it default (bitstream) but in the home theater receiver don't select 5.1 b/c that will only give you a virtual 5.1 not a true 5.1. In fact don't select any sound field at all just select dolby digital or dts depending on the source of the movie then you should be ok.
The only other problem i can see is that hdmi sends both the sound and picture to the tv. You will need to see if there's a function on the dvd player to only send the picture via hdmi and the sound via the optical out of the dvd player.
