Go into the menu and set the output resolution to either 720p or 1080i and it should work on any HDTV that's not 1080p. If it doesnt, don't use an HDMI cable - use Red/Green/Blue (Component Video) cables to hook up to the TV. It will work fine at 720p. You will also need to connect additional red and white cables for sound.
