Upconversion to 1080i playback

I have just been given a 40 inch HDtv that is capable of reproducing 1080i. I want to purchase a DVD player that will upconvert to a 1080i picture. The one thing I'm not sure about is that the TV only has component video input or S-video input. From what I've read, the component video (3 cables) are better than S-video. Most of the new upconversion DVD players have HDMI and component video output. What I'm wondering is how to determine if the upconverted signal will be sent thru the component video. I've looked at all the upconversion DVD players and they are not specific on that matter, some descriptions lead me to think the upconverted picture is only sent out via the HDMI cable.

I'm leaning toward the Sony Model: DVPNS700H/B

Hey smittybd,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this specific model DVD player is only able to provide upconverted 1080i images via its HDMI output and a maximum 480p resolution using its component connectors. Please keep in mind that while component cables are able to support 1080i and 1080p resolutions, not all hardware (TV's and DVD players) will support these resolutions through component connections.

If you're having difficulty locating a model that specifically supports 1080i resolution images through its component connections, you may wish to try visiting individual manufacturers' websites for more information. Some companies (such as Sony) will provide detailed information regarding what each type of connection is capable of in their owner's manual documentation.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

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).

I have a 720p HDTV. If I buy a BluRay DVD player with is see a significient difference in my movie picture quality. Im using an Upconvert player now.


I've never seen an upconverting DVD player that could match the image quality of a high-definition disc player, particularly when you're outputting to a larger TV. The basic issue is that the maximum resolution of DVD is 720x480 while Blu-ray is 1,920x1,080. The Blu-ray image is much larger and made up of more information than the DVD image.

You didn't mention the size of your TV, but anything over 32" and high-quality picture is important to you....go BluRay. Not to mention that BluRay are relatively inexpensive now.

UPCONVERT DVD PLAYER HDMI PROBLEM


I have the same issue with this player hooked up to a Samsung 58 inch 1080p plasma.

Component Cable


Are you just using the yellow cable at this point, because the quality would in fact be awful? Using the green, red & blue cables (component cables) would not improve quality much, seeing as the yellow video cable has a resolution of 480i and component cables are set at 480p. Your TV (if it is in fact high definition) would either run at 720p or 1080p depending on what the manual says and what the native resolution is. I would say try and buy and upconvert DVD player and make sure to get an HDMI cable to go from the DVD player to the HDTV (some DVD players come with this cable, but you'll have to look around for them, otherwise look on buy.com or something for some cheap ones). HDMI connection and the upconvert DVD player will improve picture quality significantly.

So with the upcoverter??


Greetings jhays82,

While I am not familiar with all the models out there, I personally purchased a Samsung upconvert 2 years ago and I could definately see the difference between this and my progressive scan dvd player from before. In searching online for the Panasonic 1080p upconvert, there are several differing opinions, however my suggestion would be to purchase the one that appeals to you and utilize the 30 day return policy if the unit does not work for you.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

DVD Upconverters???


Greetings jhays82,

Some DVD players can upconvert DVD signals to resolutions that match those of HDTVs, and send them to a compatible TV via a digital video connection. HDMI (High-Definition Media Interface) and DVI (Digital Visual Interface) both offer high-quality digital transmission of standard- and high-definition video signals. HDMI can also carry multichannel audio, and is backwards compatible with DVI (video only). So in other words, to receive the full benefit from an upconvert, you would want to hook it up with HDMI or DVI.

Thank You,

Agent Dort,

Try pressing the HDMI button on your remote a couple of times, pause about 5seconds after each press it might be slow to change. If this doesn't work try connecting just the yellow lead(composite video) into the DVD player to the TV like the old days, probably AV1 or AV2 in the back of the TV. Then access the setup menu(setup button on remote). This will bring up a menu. Use the down arrow on the remote until HDMI setup is highlighted. You should then get a selection to turn HDMI on and select the different outputs(576, 720p, or 1080i). You might actually find the picture to be worse on some DVDs.

It'll still be 480i, it'll just work on a 1080i input now. You can't make HD out of a non-HD source.
