57 inch Mitsubishi 1080p LCD tv but it say 480i standard on the screen how do you change it to 1080p?
It should change by itself if you are getting a 1080 program. UNLESS you are using a Satellite decoder box. I had to go to "settings" menu in the decorder box and uncheck 480i then check 480p, 720p and the 1080 box. After that, the Info button activated the screen to display the 1080 format.

I do believe that it will work if your buy a converter. That is if they make a converter from interlaced to progressive scan.
All LCD displays use progressive scanning, namely the whole frame is built up line by line rather than odd lines followed by even lines. Therefore, by default, 1080i will be converted to 1080p, but at a frame rate of 25Hz or 29.97Hz.. 1080p sets take 1080i cable or satellite signal and convert (dei…nterlace) it, creating a progressive scan, meaning the picture is painted from the top to the bottom line (there are 1080 such horizontal lines) in a single pass, and this process (in the US) happens 60 times per second.. 1080p is normally run at 50Hz (Europe) or 59.94Hz (North America). 1080i is normally half that frequency. Even if the signal is converted from 1080i to 1080p, there is no additional picture information and therefore, little is gained by the conversion. If the television actually does the conversion, it is worth doing a comparison between converted and unconverted to see which produces the most pleasing results. (MORE)
Is there any visible difference in picture quality of 1080i and 1080p 42 inch LCDs if your cable signal is 1080i?
Probably not. All that means is that the I (interlaced) and P (progressive) scans are interpolated by the TV set and then displayed. All of the picture info should still be available for display. In general terms, all the interlaced or progressive scan means, is how the TV handles the display on …the screen where the progressive scans all the lines of video information progressively (one at a time, sort of a stacking one on top of the other like a computer monitor) to build a picture, while the interlaced scans the info by interlacing several between each other as the display builds. You should be able to find more accurate info on the web since it'd take quite a bit of time to explain it here in easy to understand terms. (MORE)
1080p signal may not work on a 1080i TV set. You may not get a picture, but just a blank screen. And that blank screen will not let you undo the changes because you cannot see anything on the screen.. In this case, you may have to make an analog connection, such as a composite video connection, to …your TV set just to undo the changes you have made. Or you have to press a combination of buttons on the 1080p signal source to restore the picture.. I suggest you read the documentation that came with your 1080p signal source. (MORE)
1080p is not currently being used in live television production and is not being broadcast at present. Broadcasters are still migrating to 1080i and 720p formats and the majority of HD production equipment will not support 1080p. No doubt, it will come in time but expect broadcast 1080p to be some y…ears away yet.. The Sony PS3 boasts the ability to deliver 1080p as do certain other local devices. Personally, I am not aware of any 1080p material that is commonly available, even on disc. More will become available in the future but the push towards 1080i needs to be largely completed before broadcasters and film distributors look seriously at 1080p as the preferred format.. It would be useful for anyone with additional 1080p devices for demostic use to list some here. (MORE)
You'll have to call Comcast technical support and set up anappointment for a tecnician to come and program the box.
Buy LCD TV at http://watchliveauctions.com/lcd_tv . No matter what anyone tells you, the human eye can only detect between 720 and 1080 on a 37" screen if you sit closer than about 6 feet from your TV. 1080 is needed for BIG TVs to really get the full advantage of 1080.
1080 is the amount of pixles going verticaly on the tv and is the highest resolution for a tv.
It should be, in my opinion. The `I' for interlaced and the `P' for progressive really denotes the method with which the TV displays the picture.
High definition television uses one of three common formats - 720p, 1080i and 1080p. Any incoming signal will be delivered to a television in one of the three formats. 720p indicates that there are 720 lines in the image. The "p" means "progressive" and a complete image is delivered 50 or 60 time…s each second. 1080i shows that there are 1080 lines. The "i" stands for "interlaced" and the image is sent in two halves so a half image is sent 50 or 60 times each second but the full frame is sent only 25 or 30 times each second. 1080p is also made up with 1080 lines but the "p" shows that a full image is delivered 50 or 60 times each second. Broadcasters use 720p or 1080i. These are both full HD signals. Although the 720 line image has a lower resolution, it is updated twice as fast. The data rate for 720p and 1080i is the same. Although 720p is less common than 1080i, it is used by broadcasters for some fast action content such as sports. 1080p updates the image at twice the rate of 1080 and therefore uses double the bandwidth. Broadcasters do not send out 1080p and it is restricted to local sources such as Bluray, games consoles etc. (MORE)
the 1080 number refers to the number of lines of video vertically (top to bottom) on your TV. The "P" refers to progressive scan. You have 2 types of scanning: Interlace: Which is where your lines scan the even lines first (540 lines) then the odd lines next (540 lines), then the even line, etc. Thi…s happens 60 times per second which means your complete picture is refreshed 30X per second. Progressive: With progressive scan all 1080 lines are scanned 60X per second which means your picture is refreshed twice as often per second. This results in more smooth motion and greatly enhances your viewing experience.The 1080p is the best HDTV. (MORE)
As of the beginning of 2009, some satellite companies, like DirecTV or DISH, offer "On Demand" 1080p video content, mostly relegated to movies that have been released in BluRay format. However, satellite TV consumers will need a new service and a new receiver (MPEG-4 equipment) in order to enjoy 108…0P signal on their 1080p TV sets. (MORE)
Broadcast television currently does not use 1080p. The HD formats in use at present are 720p and 1080i. The "i" stands for interlaced and it means that on a single pass of the screen half of the image is built up. The second pass sees the remainder of the image added to the first half. A full im…age is delivered 25 or 30 times each second. A 1080p signal delivers a full image on every pass, 50 or 60 times each second. 1080p therefore needs double the amount of data compared to 1080i. Broadcast infrastructure and the extra bandwidth requirements prevent 1080p being broadcast. \n. \n1080p is limited at present to Bluray and other local HD sources such as computers and game consoles. Don't expect to see 1080p from your television service provider any time soon.\n. \nThe 1080p identification on the television says that it will display 1080p but of course can only do this with a 1080p incoming signal.

Samsung LN32B550 32" 1080P LCD TV.. I have 2 Samsung LCD TVs and they are GREAT. This one is rated 5 stars. It isn't quite the cheapest, but this one is a newer model with great specs.
Yes, probably. But the quality difference won't be noticeable.... Yes you can have a 1080p source on a 720p panel. You won't be taking full advantage of the Blu-ray/ PS3/ Xbox360 but it will work just fine.
1080p is going to have more screen resolution which means a finer amount of detail in the picture.
I have a 42' LCD HD Ready 1080P TV which is about 2 years old and recently the bottom third of the tv has begun flickering black and distorting the picture?
This could be a problem with the signal or the optical block inside the TV is malfunctioning.
no it comes with the av cable aka the red white and yellow wires that plug into any of those compatible TV's that support it however i am told it looks better with a 1080p TV

Almost all HD televisions other than some older models will handle 1080p signals. A few of the early models may require the Bluray output to be set to 1080i rather than 1080p.
A TV can't display a resolution higer then it's max. Second, let's understand that the two consoles playstation 3 and xbox 360 both sends a true 720P signal. 1080P is actually a upconverted signal of 720P, so after knowing this, do we still want 1080P from our consoles?

Most modern LCD/Plasma TV's are capable of receiving and displaying 720i, 720p, 1080i and 1080p signals. Therefore your TV, if it can receive 1080i, should be quite happy with a 1080p signal.

The proper question to be asked would be: is an 1080p samsung TV compatible with non-1080p DVD players? Probably YES, because most devices today are made to be backward-compatible (ie. be able to play older standards).

There are several HD television formats, all agreed with the international standards organisations. The main formats are 720p 1080i and 1080p. Virtually all HD televisions will handle all formats although some of the earliest HD televisions don't operate with 1080p signals. Later televisions are cap…able of displaying 1080p as well as other formats. Every HD television has a native resolution. Often, the screen is made up with 1920 x 1080 pixels. All incoming signals are resized to the native resolution. A 720 line signal will be processed to be displayed on the 1080 lines of the display. Similarly, a 1080 line image will be resized to display on 720 or 768 lines if that is the television's native resolution. Therefore, an LCD television with a native screen resolution of 720 lines will be capable of displaying a 1080 line image. (MORE)
HD televisions are capable of displaying a wide range of image resolutions and timings. Most larger HD televisions will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 576i, 480i and each of these in several different field rates. The standard broadcast format for HD is1080i with 720p used to far lesser extent. The tel…evision shows "1080i" because that is the signal being received. It will only display "1080p" if it receives a 1080p signal. Currently, broadcasters do not transmit 1080p and have no plans to do so for a number of years from now. When playing standard definition material into the television, it is likely to display 576i, 480i or perhaps show the letters PAL or NTSC to indicate the standard definition signal format. (MORE)
At the moment there are very few programs in 1080P. The tv will switch itself to the correct mode (P) when the program is in that standard.
1080p and 1080i both refer to the format of a video signal. Any HD television will receive the signal and display it. If the television reports the signal standard being received, it will let you know what the signal is. Therefore, the television cannot be changed from one standard to another as it …simply handles the incoming signal. Currently, broadcast HD signals are almost exclusively 1080i with a few formatted as 720p. Both are considered full HD even though the resolutions are different. 1080p is found on some local sources such as games consoles and Bluray players but has not yet made it to mainstream broadcast services.

HD televisions are capable to displaying several HD formats. The most common are 1080i, 1080p and 720p. All HD signals will be in one of those three formats and the television will automatically accept and display any of the formats. The on screen report that the display is running at 720p is simpl…y an indication that the incoming signal is in that format. Change the incoming signal to 1080 and the status will change to show 1080. Note that 1080i and 720p are both true HD formats and broadcasters are free to use either format. 720p is less used but it may be found on sports channels as it handles high speed movement a little better than 1080i.

HDTV is broadcast in two formats: 720p and 1080i. When your 1080pset gets these signals it has to convert them to 1080p. With 720pit scales the image to 1080p while with 1080i it deinterlaces theimage. Current TVs are very good at this and so you wind up withthe full 1080 lines of resolution in the …end. If your 1080p isdisplaying 1080i on screen, it just means that is the signal it isreceiving, but it is converted to 1080p before you see it. (MORE)
