HT 220 Full HD Upscaling

Hi I need basic help! I bought a HT220 and full HD Samsung LCD TV. I seem unable to increase the DVD upscaling from 720p to 1080p. Someone has suggested that it is a limitation of the capacity of the HDMI cable to channel both sound and AV up to 1080p and that the system is therefore defaulting to the maximum of 720p. Is this true, and if so, would a higher-end HDMI cable solve the issue? Please forgive me I am something of a technological troglodyte. Thanks!

HT 220 Full HD Upscaling


I've seen people describe their technical abilities before, but never that one. Happy

What model of TV do you have? If you're looking at the TV like you normally would, look at where the right speaker would be. Behind that should be a sticker with a model number. Could you post that?

Also, what region are you inquiring from? I'm not identifying this particular model, so I'm assuming it may not be a U.S. products. If it's different, please choose from one of these sites so I can help further:

HDMI issue solved!

Hi, thanks for the response - I have been away on business and only recently returned. Problem sorted - nothing wrong with the HDMI cable or its carrying capacity. It seems that the user simply needs to read instruction manuals properly.
