What are pros and cons of LCD vs 4K TV?


Do you mean HD LCD vs 4K (UHD) LCD TV ?
4K (UHD) TV is approx 4,000 pixels across image compared to 1,920 pixels on HD LCD TV. So around 4 to 6 times the overall image resolution.
I have Sony Bravia 55inch 4K TV for 3 years now and even though much of the content I view is free to air 720p or 1080i or Blue ray DVD, the upscaling processors in the TV will produce an image WAY BETTER than any HD LCD can ever do. Don't be mislead by salespersons who say that there isn't enough 4K content around to justify a 4K TV. There is an increasing 4K market.
The truth is a 4K TV will do far better with ANY image it is fed than a basic HD LCD TV.
HD LCD is just old technology.
Another plus of 4K is the fantastic photo and movie image quality off computer via HDMI connection.
Also breathtaking video from my 4K GoPro camera.
Enjoy 4K, I do !!

Blue ray wont play movies on new tv


Are you sure the tv is 1080p capable? Usually when "mode is not supported" is displayed, it means that the tv can not handle the signal format that is being input to it. If you are using HDMI, then signal formatting is usually handled automatically. If you are using component video, you will probably have to tell the PS3 to step down the signal to either 1080i or 720p.

I have a mitsubsihi ws-65907 and hooed up a sony blue-ray dvd player, I can only get a 480i resolution, is there a way to change it to 1080i?


Make sure the cables from the blue ray player are hooked up to the right 1080 high def input jacks on the back of the TV. There is two different sections, one for regular 480 inputs and another for the 1080i....

Blue ray disc on Ps3 does not look high definition


If your TV has a 120 mhz setting, turn it off. My blu-rays (and some regular DVDs) were having problems as well, but this solved it. Basically, the 120 mhz setting is just too good, even for a PS3.

The setting may have other names, but whatever it's called on your TV, it's responsible for providing extra scaling/processing from the source (your PS3).

Also, make sure your PS3 is NOT set to double-scale. "Normal" is just fine.

Cant get rid of black baras on top and below while watching DVD's


The TV remote may have a button stating Aspect Ratio, or similar. Usually when you keep hitting it, it may cycle through available settings like 16:9, 4:3, Wide, Zoom, etc. If not, or if the remote doesn't have this button, check the TV's onscreen display but usually the source device like the DVD player is in control of how the image fits the screen so the DVD player's onscreen display or it's remote may also have the Aspect option so check it as well. Todays TV's are alot like PC monitors and they "talk" to the device in control of the signal. Your Samsung may have worked better with the Blu Ray, or maybe it's the other way around but your new LG may not have an automatic adjustment like the Samsung may have had.

Dvd player, hd dvd movies


If this is just a regular DVD player, then no. You need an HD DVD player to play HD DVD discs. Now the HD DVD players should play regular DVD discs.

Games run on hdmi, but not Blu-ray movies


You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"
