Question about Sony 36IN TV Stand Designed for Model KV-36FS120

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

How to plug a blu-ray dvd in my theaterwide tv...i have a hdmi converter to componant but no images.....thanks


Your TV cannot reproduce 1080p resolution so go into the menu setup of bluray player and make sure resolution is on 1080i and not 1080p. I understand you will have to do this on another TV capable of 1080p or if your bluray player has a composite output (yellow single rca) then hook that up as it may be active at the same time into your AV in on the TV. Once you have picture, then you can enter the setup menu as I have indicated above. I hope this solves your problem.

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.

If it is me and I am spending that kind of money, it is going to be sick, os here is sick. 7.1 dolby surround and 1080P HDMI, 135W per channel, and right now if you go to FRYS.com, it is normally $500.00 bt for right now it is only $449.00. But if you put this in, be prepared to buy a PS/3 as your next investment (Th best way to get Blu-RaY at an affordable price, plus many other features) and an upconvert DVD layer, which is only about $100.00 or less today. Then you better get ready to hear from your neighbors and the cops, because they are going to think a war has broken out in your place. Enjoy, I play movies that the sound is just so realistic, I hate to leave the house anymore. Also, remember, speaker placement is key, so know the optimal environment for your system and if you need one, I may be able to hook you up with a system room tuning DVD for next to nothing. This will allow you to setup your system and place your speakers optimally for your environment. good Luck.

Can you connect to upconversion DVD Player for HDMI performance


The TV supports 1080i so if your hardware is plugged into the Component Cable Connection for Digital TV on the back the signal will come out 1080i as long as the hardware supports the size.

For example, my 360 is connected like this and when the dvd player is in use it upscales from the 480 format dvds use to 1080. More on the HD-DVD for the 360 and how it handles the sizes here:
http://www.engadgethd.com/2006/09/21/xbox-360-hd-dvd-playback-maximum-1080i-via-component-1080p-vga/

Kind of an old article since the newer 360s have hdmi and support 1080p that route.

Hopefully this helps.
