Question about Mitsubishi WT-46809 46" Rear Projection Television
I bought this model about 4 years ago thinking it was only a few years till I would upgrade and actually use the full capabilities of this set. Yesterday, the DirecTV installer hooked up a Model H20, DirecTV HD Receiver. After much long anticipation I was agast to discover that the set would only work on the 480i and 480p resolution settings. The 720p and 1080i settings only show what resembles a scrabbled screen. I checked the monitors advance video settings and the only options listed are 480p and 960i, even the though the label on front of the set seems to indicate it can operate at 1080 ("HD1080 Series"). Has anyone else been confronted with this dilema and is there away to upgrade the set or am I just out of luck on this?
I have found some info on this, please read: "For standard (480i) connections, there are three S-Video/ composite-video/ R/L audio sets. You would use these for any of your standard video connections such as a VHS VCR. There are two component-video (Y-Pb-Pr) connections, each with three RCA jacks, which will accept input at 480i and 480p (such as the output from a progressive-scan DVD player, for example). Each of these two component-input sets has a corresponding R/L audio connection. Finally, there's a single component-video connection with five RCA jacks, handling Y, Pb, Pr, H, and V (the last two are for horizontal and vertical sync signals). This last component-video connection will take input at 480i, 480p, and 1080i. You do not have to use all five connections. If you have a 1080i-output device, such as the analog output from an STB digital high-def broadcast tuner, with only Y-Pb-Pr output, you can connect to just the three Y-Pb-Pr connections on this five-jack component-video connection. As with the other component-video inputs, the Y-Pb-Pr-H-V set has a corresponding R/L audio input jack pair. The Y-Pb-Pr-H-V component-video connection will also accept an analog VGA-connector output. To make such a connection, you will need one of the adapters with a VGA jack on one end, connected to a cable whichs splits into five separate cables, each terminating in the appropriate type of RCA plug (Y-Pb-Pr-H-V)." This might be your solution. It worked on my Mitsubishi WT 46809. I have moved the component cables installed by the Direct TV installer to the second row of component-video connection (labeled 1080i) and finaly my DirectTV HD receiver is recognizing the 1080 signal.
