Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

I have a sylvania 1080p HDTV and can't figure out how to get it to 1080p it is at 480i ???? any help would be greatly appreciated


Answers :

The signal coming from your cable box, FTA receiver, or whatever source, is usually what drives your TV's resolution. If this happens with a Scientific Atlanta HD cable box, for instance, there's a "Setup" button on the remote control that allows you to indicate how your TV interacts with the box and responds to resolution changes, depending on whether the signal is SDTV (4:3) or HDTV (16:9).
\015\012In my case, with my Sanyo 50" 1080p HDTV, I get the best of both worlds by using the setting (I forget what it's called) that gives me two "pillars", one on each side of the picture, when the latter is standard definition, and full wide screen picture when the signal is HD. These pillars are of some shade of grey, in order to activate the pixels on the side of the picture and avoid the burning of the standard, 4:3 formatted screen on my plasma pixels.
\015\012Failing that, look into your user's manual and see whether this is something you can set within the TV's configuration menu.
\015\012Last, investigate the different options offered by the TV's own Setup menu, usually available from the TV's remote control.
\015\012Good luck!

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR.
