Question about Akai PDP-5016H 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

2 Answers

I just bought a blu ray player and trying to get the Akai to change its resolution to 1080i that is its maximum. I cannot find a way to change it even though there are various levels of resolution available. I am using the hdmi output of the player and the dvi imput to the TV which is connected to the 'digital rgb' 'source' of the the TV. There must be a way to adjust the resolution. The 'info' button shows me a resolution in frequency of 1024 x 768, with 30hz vertical. This does not make any sense to me.

    Hi Lee, let me be more explicit. The table I referred to has 1080i listed as 1920x1080 resolution, 28 and 33 horz. freq. and 50 and 60 vert. According to the table, the signal mode for the DVI only goes to 1280x1024, while the YPbPr input (rgb cable) goes to the higherst 1080i as above, which does not make sense to me.



    What I am attempting to do is match the 1080i from the player to the TV. No where in the maual does it mention a way to make such an adjustment, yet the 'info' button always gives me the same feedback. When I used the YPbPr with a rgb cable, the player, reading 1080i worked, but the 'info' on the TV gave me a 480p as resolution. If the TV automatically changed according to the player input, it should have read 1080i.

    See my point?

HDMI yes if for high DEF but DVI max resolution witch is used fo PC's at Native 1024X768

if you read this Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

there are diffrent DVI connectors, Now why your tv does not have HDMI inputs is what clues me. I would recoomed you just usind RGB rather then a DVI interfase. The reason for the resoluton issue
1. it thinks its a computer this genrally hoosk up to a computer via thie connector.
2. Hdmi to dvi is a down conversion (you might not have the right connector or spec)

Resolution:

you better off going RGB red,green,blue to get the full 1080 HD experience.

If you have it plugged into the dvi that most likely is the highest resolution 1024x768.
Thank you,

The setup reads on a 480i when it should be in 1080i. How do I get the system from the 480 to 1080?


our TV has a 1080p display screen and it does not change. What changes is your input signal. When you see a little message on screen saying "480i" (or anything else), it's telling you the resolution of whatever you have connected to the TV. In this case, it's most likely a standard-def TV channel.

If you *are* using a cable or satellite receiver, you need to get into its menu and set its output resolution to 1080i (which is the maximum for TV channels). Also, it needs to be an HD receiver, if it isn't already.

You only get true 1080p from a Blu-ray player or from certain game consoles.

Wen i play a blu-ray it keeps saying out of range


Sounds like you need to change the output from the Blu-ray player. Don't send a 1080p signal, try 1080i or 720p. Plug the Blu-ray player into the TV using the composite cable (red,white,yellow) to get the menu back up on the TV then change the output resolution and then plug the HDMI cable back in.
It should then work.

I know dvd player can not play Blu-ray but is not the Samsung dvd hd870 different. It reads 1080i.


That refers to the video output - your player is capable of upscaling: it transforms, without changing the quality of the image itself, the resolution from SD (480i) to HD (1080i).

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.

For some reason mt blue ray player was saying 1080i and not p so i went into menu and changed to 1080p but tv is now saying mode not supported and i cant get back into the menu on the blue ray player to...


Try to make use of the yellow video cable, the cable that is part of the RCA cable and try to set the TV to AV1 as soon as the video cable is connected from your BD player to your TV. Turn on your Bd player and you can now set the TV to its correct resolution. Best thing also to reset oyur bd player back to its factory settings.

You can select the “HDMI Resolution” of the Blu-ray Player is set to “Auto,” “1080i,” or “1080p” in the “Video Settings” setup. You can refer the page # 43 of the Manual of the Blu-ray Player.

The blu ray DVD is not loading or starting on my new set


Without knowing your make and model of your equipment my provided help is limited to generalization. However, if the problem is in fact caused by disc loading then your TV is not part of the cause.

First make sure that your blu ray player is up to date on it's firmware version. Refer to it's manual on the methods of obtaining updated firmware installations...in many cases you will be able to download the newest version from the manufacturers website and create a disc that you would then put into the player, and the player will automatically perform what needs to be done.

If the firmware is up to date, then make sure that your TV input resolution is compatible with the output resolution of the player. Not only does the TV need to be "hi-def" but in some cases you must also manually select from the player which resolution format you would like to view. For example, if your TV has the maximum capability of resolution output of 1080i and you would like to view that, then select 1080i on the player, or 720p if the disc is a blu ray format. If you select 1080p, you will NOT get a picture because the TV cannot produce it if it is rated to 1080i.

Flickering picture when setting resolution to 1080P vs 1080I


Hello,

This simply means that your TV isn't capable of handling a 1080 progressive input. This is why it is flickering. Change it back to 1080i(interlaced) and the only time you should ever see flicker is in a still menu. But even then it should be barely noticeable.

If your TV does support 1080progressive then you may want to change the scan frequency of the Yamaha receiver. Common ones are 24 frames/sec or 50/60 Hz. The amplifier should have an auto setting which will detect what the TV can display. The nice thing about HDMI is all that information is transmitted through the cable.

A version 2 or highspeed cable won't change the display at all.

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.

Does blu ray technology work with old TVs


Yes, provided the TV can accept one of the Blu-Ray player output connection types. But there is NO advantage over DVD, the reason is that Blu-Ray is designed for 1080i and 1080p resolution high definition TV's, and you won't get better resolution simply connecting a Blu-Ray player to an old TV.
