I see this player is a little odd in that it can supply ANALOG Video and audio but let's say you connect with HDMI.
Sure enough I see in it's settings in the manual you can get other than 1080 output.
I can't tell you exactly how to set it up but what I see and what you are reporting looks possible.
"Select [Original Resolution] to output the resolution recorded on the disc."
I'd try Auto.
PS. Manual might be at link to follow.
I have a Samsung 46" 5300 series Smart LED TV and a Sony BPS185 bluray player.
I'm just wondering that since both my tv and player are full 1080p HD, I'm still receiving a 720p resolution according to my tv INFO. When I'm watching cable, I have a full 1080p and the INFO says 1920x1080.
Does it have something to do with the HDMI cables that I used? I did try to interchange both cables and got same result. I used the HDMI port 2 for my cable and the HDMI port 3 for my blu ray player.
I would appreciate all your insights regarding this.
