How do you change the settings on the VIDEO Inout Component 1 - 480i/480p and the Component 2 - 480p/720p/1080i?

    I suppose my question should have stated how do I physically make the change on the Component 2 input. My problem is that I can only receive the HD channels in Component 2 and have to use Component 1 to receive the digital channels. There is a way to change the display setting on the TV, but I don't know how to do that. The "display" command on the remote only displays the setting.

    after you plug in component 2 > turn on tv > change source to component 2 > if your tv supports manual resolution modes you should find it somewhere in the menu > in your case maybe the display button gains access to the menu.
    but some tv doesn't support manual resolution modes, but anyway if the TV supports the specific resolution you can always watch the maximum supported resolution in the right ratio.

480p to 1080i


Your TV should automatically switch to 1080i if the source input is in 1080i format. Also, since your TV does not have HDMI, you must use the component 1 or 2 inputs (using component cables) for 1080i source material. You cannot get 1080i from composite or s-video inputs. You should be able to switch to the component inputs using the remote or the front control panel using TV/Video button.

How do i get 1080i, my tv shows im only in 480i. i think i might have it hooked up incorrect. my other tv of another brand is much newer so all i did was connect the hdmi cable from the tv to the cable box...


Hello

Your TV will display all High Definition signals as 1080i True HDTV™ and all standard definition signals will be displayed as 480p.

Component Inputs 1-2
YPbPr(480i/480p/1080i)
These inputs can be used for the connection of A/V equipment with component video outputs, such as a DVD player or external HDTV receiver. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.
Input DTV (480i/480p/1080i)
This input is used to connect an external DTV receiver, and can be configured for YPrPb and RGB plus H&V signal types.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

InputDTV
This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with "separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
Ok.

The display only goes between normal and zoom


This is an EDTV capable of 1080i over component cables. It will also display 480p & 720p. Most likely its the video source determing the resolution you are seeing.
