Question about Panasonic PT-47WX51 47" Rear Projection Television

I have a Zenith IQB64W10W and I cannot get 1080I using my xbox. It reverts to Standard Definition. I can get 1080i using my cable box.

    I am using component and yes it does 1080i with cable box. Whenever I move Xbox 360 past 420P using component cables I get a black screen on TV. I have the TV's manual and it states it does 1080I using component so I am just not sure what's going on.

    While the TV is old it was never used and is in new condition and I got it for free so I do not mind throwing money at this issue if there is some sort of upscaler or other box I can buy to make it work. Sucks that HBO HD looks so good yet XBOX 360 games look more like XBOX games.

    I was looking at this and think it's what you are mentioning.

    I am also not against buying a AV reciever seeing as this TV only has 1 component in so I am going to have to split that some way

    I assume I should probably make sure anything I buy has a good return policy.

Unfortunately there is no upgrade equipment or anything like that. There is no guarantee of compatibility between devices and televisions, and it sounds like this is the problem you are experiencing. Working arund the problem will take some time and experimentation. There are switchers you can connect to the television. You would connect the XBox 360 to the switcher. Also if you were planning on purchasing a surround sound receiver you could connect the XBox 360 to it and connect it to the television. The time consuming part is finding a switcher or receiver that would enable the 1080i. This equipment will sometimes only allow for 720p, which is essentially the same as 1080i. But it might take a couple purchase and return trips to the electronics store to find the right switcher or home theater equipment. Hope this helps.

    Yes. This is the sort of switcher I had in mind. I was not aware of this particular model. Thank you for sharing it. They are available locally as well and if you are near a Best Buy or some other Electronics store you may want to try their's first before mail ordering simply because you are going by trial and error and may need to return the switcher.

Are you using Component cables? Will it do 720p just fine from the xbox? Have you tried putting the cables in the same input as your cable box and seeing if it will do 1080i there? Some inputs will only do certain resolutions.

Thanks, let me know, we can definitely get this figured out.

How to set display to 1080p on Hisense F42K20E?


You don't. The TV has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels; so it's already 1080p. The number of pixels can't be changed.

What you're probably getting mixed up with is the TV showing the resolution of the incoming signal when you change channels or go to a different source. Standard definition from cable might be flagged as 480i. DVD might show either as 480i, or 480p, or maybe 720p or 1080i or 1080p if you have a scaling DVD player and set it appropriately. HDTV on cable or satellite will show as 1080i or possibly 720p. Blu-rays and PS3/XBox 360 or PS4/Xbox One should show as 1080p when your TV is connected.

Whatever the source signal resolution, the TV will scale it up to fill the panel area of 1920x1080 pixels. So the TV is always using all the pixels, regardless of the resolution of the source signal.

I have a 47" Visio 1080p. Tv is always set at hdmi


AV inputs are for standard analog video which is 480i. HDMI and Component inputs are the high definition inputs that run at either 1080i or 1080p You won't ever get 1080i or p through AV inputs.

How do i get 1080i, my tv shows im only in 480i. i think i might have it hooked up incorrect. my other tv of another brand is much newer so all i did was connect the hdmi cable from the tv to the cable box...


Hello

Your TV will display all High Definition signals as 1080i True HDTV™ and all standard definition signals will be displayed as 480p.

Component Inputs 1-2
YPbPr(480i/480p/1080i)
These inputs can be used for the connection of A/V equipment with component video outputs, such as a DVD player or external HDTV receiver. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.
Input DTV (480i/480p/1080i)
This input is used to connect an external DTV receiver, and can be configured for YPrPb and RGB plus H&V signal types.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

InputDTV
This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with "separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
Ok.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def


Hi!
I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.


Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.

360 video problem on HDTV


I need a little bit more info on the TV its an RCA what?,

In the mean time what you could try is finding someone with a HD tv and trying it out at there house so that you can single out if it is your system or the TV. This will help alot you can also try someone else's xbox 360 at your house on your tv to see if it is your AV cable / xbox360.

Hitachi 53SDX89BA


I also have a Hitachi 53SDX89BA and I bought it with the same assumption as you: that it's HD ready. The specs in the manual states the following: "Full 1080i HDTV Capatable with Set-Top Box". I beleive this means that it does not include an HD tuner, but that it is capable of handling up to 1080i resolution. Normal (non-HD) resolution on this TV is 480i.

So here's my problem: Until recently, I wasn't using the HD settings on this TV because I don't have a set top box, nor do I subscribe to any HD content from my cable provider. However, I just purchased an XBox 360 along with an XBox 360 HD-DVD player (it's an XBox peripheral that works with the game console). The Xbox asks you to choose the resolution output (480i, 720i or 1080i) to match your TV's HD capabilities. When I select 1080i output and change my TV's settings to receive an HD signal, the picture quality is amazing. However, the video signal seems to get lost ocassionally (i.e. TV picture gets scrambled) but then it comes right back. This does not happen when I select a 480i output on the Xbox...but of course, the picture isn't as crisp and clear as a 1080i picture.

I don't know if this is a problem with the TV or with the Xbox. Has anybody else had this problem??

How do i get my tv at 1080i


First of all your system, tv, must be able to perform your request, Secondly, your service must be able to provide the 1080i or 1080p, not all service's provide the service with the equipment they provided you (your box). Check with your provider.
