    Manual says hit FORMAT button on remote, but there isn't a FORMAT button on the remote. My remote has a PIP SIZE button instead.

I have a mitsubshi WS55311 and if your running an analog cable box or satalite box your not going to get more than 480i Once you get an HD box ( cable or satalite ) then channels that are in HD, you will get 1080i . Good idea to use RGB componet cables along with Digital Audio cables to get the best from your HD 1080i signal. You may need to go into your setup and change your DTV to RGB or one of the other settings if your screen apears to be more of one color than a clear picture, such as all green. Hope this helps.

First of all your system, tv, must be able to perform your request, Secondly, your service must be able to provide the 1080i or 1080p, not all service's provide the service with the equipment they provided you (your box). Check with your provider.

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.

How to I change tv to 1080i from 480i?

this should automatically be done by the tv. If you input to a standard def input (ie yellow plug) or are using standard def cable it will be 480. If u change to a HD input or an HD channel it should automatically switch to 1080. The input displayed on the tv that says 480i or 1080i is just a result of what is being played, not a setting to be changed.

My aquos 1080i only get 480

Well if you paid full price for this and they put that in then I'd take it back if I had the reciept I'd take it back to the store and tell them that I want another T.V. with 1080i. Because like 720 to 1080 isn't a big difference, but 480 to 1080 is a big difference. So if you have your reciept then take it back and tell them to give you a new one or put another 1080i board in it.

    How do I put it to 1080 resolution

    I have this same TV and a PS3. You either need to get a HDMI - DVI cable, or plug in some component cables in order to get 1080i from your PS3. Your DVD's will upscale to 1080i and your Blue_Rays will run at 1080i, but be aware, if you play PS3 games that only read 720p on the back of the game box, the PS3 will down convert them to 480p instead of upconverting them to 1080i.

    Upgrading my 480 component input to 1080

    Get an upconverting DVDP that puts out 1080i on component. They were made several years ago, and today it can't be done without HDMI, which your set is too old for.

    Momitsu, Bravo, Lite0n made them, with the Samsung 841 hackable for that purpose. Try to find one used, and be sure to ask whether they upconvert SD - standard - DVDs from 480i->1080i before you buy. Then take that 1080i in via component, which is stellar in its performance and has none of the anomalies that are plaguing HDMI on many brands of CRT units.

    Time lag between Playstation 3 and LCD TV.


    If your playing with lag on your new HD LCD your at a competitive disadvantage! Everything you see happens seconds later than your opponent who has his/her settings right.
    The fix:
    1. Connect your PS3 using HDMI Input 2.
    2. SELECT or RENAME the HDMI Input to PC. Already pointed out, but this does not make the majority of tv's run in PC mode.
    3. On the PS3 start-up menu go to Settings---> Display ---->
    Choose HDMI ----> DO NOT choose AUTOMATIC ----> SELECT CUSTOM ----->
    4. Now, Select all the Resolution options EXCEPT 720p. This will force your games into 1080p mode. What it will also do is drop any game that doesn't have 1080i/p support into 480. Games like Burnout Paradise, Vegas 2, Heavenly Sword, NHL 08 and more will be dropped into SD (480) rather than HD. Your picture will be terrible. 720p is standard gaming resolution currently, 1080i/p is not.
    5. Save and complete the display setup.
    6. Turn off the PS3. Turn off the TV.
    7. Turn on the TV. Turn on the PS3.
    8. Complete! (Lag eliminated). Please spread this around!

    *The key to eliminating ALL LAG is modern LCD's need to be in PC MODE (NOT GAME MODE) On many tv's, PC mode requires you to use a VGA or DVI connector. You'll either need to buy an HDMI adapter or an HDMI to VGA / DVI cable if that's the case.
    and the Source MUST BE IN 1080p so that the TV can use it's NATIVE RESOLUTION.* Please, check your tv's native resolution. If you have a plasma that only does 720p, your native resolution is probably 720p. You do not need to follow these steps, it will only make things worse. If your tv's native resolution is 720p, obviously you want to keep your display settings at 720p on your PS3. If your native resolution is 1080i, you shouldn't go selecting 1080p. If your native resolution is 1080p on your TV, you need to be aware that removing 720p as an option will force many games into 480.

    Keep these things in mind and remember that the steps above are far from a cure all solution. .
