I just connected my set with a DVI/HDMI cable and it's working fine but it is set on 480p and I can't find a place to change it to 1080i. Since it is in 480p, the picture is set on WIDE and everytime I try to change it I get a message of "not availbale". I think it is because it is set on 4980p. The picture is fine but in this setting it cuts off the top and bottom portion of the picture. Thanks for your help jegunz
I don't think the set will allow resizing in DVI mode, at least mine never has. I have to switch to the video input or S video to get that to work. I think there is something in the manual about that. On mine, the component input will not work if you have the DVI connected. If you have DTV, try resizing the image on the satellite receiver's remote. Sometimes, in the DVI mode, that works. I am about to pitch this set of mine out, as it now has fried something in the convergence system and won't work at all, so if the new convergence board I have ordered wont fix it, its going up on Ebay for parts !
The HDMI input on your TV receives digital audio
and uncompressed digital video and audio from an
HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a
This input is designed to accept HDCP program
material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-
compliant consumer electronic devices (such as a settop
box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).
The HDMI input is designed for best performance
with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.
To connect an HDMI device, you will need:
• one HDMI cable (type A connector)
For proper operation, it is recommended that you use
a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter
difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4
HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.
Separate analog audio cables are not required (see
illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may
not output digital audio signals. In that case, you
may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.
However, if you connect analog audio cables with
this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will
not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.
To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset
properly, it is recommended that you follow
• When turning on your electronic components,
turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or
• When turning off your electronic components,
turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.
To connect a DVI device, you will need:
• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable
(HDMI type A connector)
For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-
DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).
The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
