    I think I have the same problem - TV was working fine earlier in the day, then this evening all digital channels are low def 480i and I am not getting anything except analog- says weak signal or channel not available - how do you switch it back to 1080i - signal meter is upper 70's but no picture or sound, have check all the menus but don't see anything for this??? What makes it go low def?? Turned the TV off/on to see if it would reset itself but nothing still.

I have a 47" Visio 1080p. Tv is always set at hdmi


AV inputs are for standard analog video which is 480i. HDMI and Component inputs are the high definition inputs that run at either 1080i or 1080p You won't ever get 1080i or p through AV inputs.

When I first bought my PS3 I didn't own a HDTV so I chose the low quality setting. Now I have a HDTV and I would like to know where do I go in the PS3 setting to change this so i have better quality...


Hi,

If you want to have a High Quality Graphics on your HDTV you just need to use a HDMI cable or Component Cables that transmit High Definition Quality of Video. Settings of Video will automatically be adjusted. HDMI Cables transmit both high def video and audio signals.

Thanks for using Fixya.

720p is putting out signal of 480i or p only


Your Tv has its own settings for high definition.

Look in your manual for appearance setting and turn the tv to 720p high definition.

That should be enough. OH! And make sure your PS3 is set for HD output too! My HD tv downconverts occasionally when the Uverse box shuts off and defaults to low def output.

Audio/video feedback noise


to solve your problem you need to use hdmi or component high quality cables...if you got a Ps3 to work with high video power...1080p ... I think you are losing time using this console with 480i audio and video low resolution cables...You need to understand that the simple sony A/V cable is made to use with Playstation One. Buy and install a hdmi cable in your Ps3 ...and you you see the huge difference...

I want to know if you have to turn on the HD conponents cause i tried to use my xbox360 and thier is nothing on the screen. i already check the xbox360 wires and they are fine.


If you are using a high def tv and u want to play with hi def graphics, u must put the switch on the xbox av/component leads to HDTV, otherwise,standard def will be used. Check the tv input by using a dvd player or another input source to confirm it works. Good Luck.

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

How to get a high definition Picture??


Okay - it is a high def 720p but you have to use the HDMI inputs for High Definition... also, using the LCD as a computer monitor the best setting is 1280 x 768 - standard p&p monitor driver for Win XP or Vista (or Win 7 Beta). The HDMI slots are on the left side and are small rectangular slots about 1" long.

High Def.


If you are using the component inputs it will select 1080i automatically IF that is what it is being sent. Make sure your device (cable/satellite receiver) is set to 1080i. The TV recognizes 480i, 480p(progressive scan DVD player) and 1080i. It DOES NOT recognize 720p. Since it has no HDMI or DVI input it can't do HD DVD or "upconvert" DVD but it does very nicely with 480p/progressive scan.
