1080p resolution without 1080p input

by rahawkey / January 24, 2009 2:54 AM PST

Does it matter if an LCD has 1080p resolution if the video inputs do not accept 1080p? I am not understanding the value if the television cannot receive 1080p input from a ps3, etc. I'm probably missing something... any help?

1080p 1080p 1080p...

If your set is supposed to be "1080p" then it will accept a 1080p signal coming in from something like a PS3. If it is having problems I would check the settings in both the set and the source.
It is my understanding that you cannot send 1080p over component cables and should be using HDMI for this signal.

Yeah, I know, so silly.

Sorry man. You simply will have to send 1080i, 720p, etc, and THEN your display should scale/deinterlace that into 1080p.

I agree, stupid. Older TV?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
