1080p input?

Correct me if I'm wrong...but does the Whitewestinghouse 37" 1080p LCD actually support 1080p input? If not...what does...if none...when will one?

This is a monitor NOT a TV

So you will need a HD cable/statilite/set top HD tuner box. But it does appear to be a True 1080p set. John

The newer versions of the Westinghouse 37'' do not do 1080P

In reply to: 1080p input?

I have been researching this for the last month and I believe I can be of assistance. The current versions of Westinghouse's 37'' model does not do 1920 x 1080p. That is, the models with software version #1.5 will not do that resolution. These are the current models on the market. However, if you are fortunate to get your hands on the model with version # .5 (the previous version of software), then it will do that resolution. The current models have a bug in the software that will not allow it do it.

How do I know? Simple. I tested them myself after being told by a Best Buy ''Computer Expert" that it would not do that resolution. I purchased one after bringing my laptop and hooking it up to the floor model. The floor model did 1920 x 1080p at 60hz (version #.5). HOwever, the model that I purchased had version #1.5 and would not accept that resolution, stating ''Signal Out of Range.'' I wasted many hours figuring this out, so I hope this helps.
