To change this setting, you must exit the application and change your Video Output Settings from the display settings option in the Settings menu. Make sure the tv is not set on 720p/i and that it is set to 1080i. There has been issues with games that are 1080 downscaling the resolution. this can be confirmed by reading this article. if you provide me with the model of the tv. I can help assist you in ensuring its on 1080p. If you need further assistance please let me know after you try the following above. Thanks, Midwest-tek

How do I change the resolution on my Phillips 4k tv from 720 to a higher resolution tools


The TV will select the correct/appropriate resolution based on the source. To achieve the highest resolution you will have to connect a unit (video source) capable of providing 4K using HDMI 2.0 compliant cables. To achieve any HD resolution, the video source will have to be connected to a HDMI port. The ATSC terrestrial digital broadcast signal (over the air TV) is generally 720p, but many stations transmit in 1080i/1080p.

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).

It has nothing to do with the tv. Its all about the source. There are vey few sources that are capable of 1080p Blueray is one. Dish Network now has dish on demand in 1080p. Also that source has to be hooked up using high speed HDMI cable.

Direct TV says that they will offer 1080p quality. Need update


Hello,

1080I and 1080P is more than a software difference. It is a hardware difference in the TV's capability to display a progressive picture at that resolution, so no software update will be able to help you. The processors are only capable of 1080 Interlace, and the TV is only capable of 720 Progressive or 1080 Interlace at it's maximum performance.

Hope this helps you...

PS3 can not perform 1080P.


TV will automatically convert signal to 1080i ; it's all in the tvs chip.
There's not much difference really! If your not seeing any image and show no signal in that input;you will have to reset your PS3 and it should work...hope that helps!
